    ok, Puerto Rico is part of the US. she has ALWAYS been an American citizen from birth. It is no more of a privilege for her to move from PR to the US than it is for you to move from Buffalo to LA.

    well Valerie welcome to world we live in, unfortunately people are more focused and scared of dieing rather than focusing on living and enjoying life

    now that they have changed what you can and cant carry on its not gonna change, they have determined it a threat and since everyone is so afraid of dieing they are gonna ban it

    well then it still is a luxury for her to live on the mainland, just as it is a luxury for me to live in L.A.

    Like you said in your other post....the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few. Brush your teeth before you get to the airport.
    I don't agree that it's risking lives and I don't agree that it's the only way to keep people safe.

    If it's such a bona fide threat, how come we've had 60+ years of commercial flight without banning toothpaste or a single toothpaste-related mishap?

    It's not a luxury for Americans to live in America. It's the right of every American citizen.

    Um, maybe because nobody ever tried to blow up a plane before by smuggling in stuff that could explode in a tube of toothpaste or a jug of water???

    when you move from where your family is part of the sacrifice is not being able to see your family when you want or in some cases need to.

    It is a luxury we choose to live whereever you want to. So if they put new restrictions on travel since I chose the luxury of living in LA I have to abide by the restrictions, Im not gonna get all pissed off over something i cant change

    In a democracy the government is responsive to the people. There are ways to change it. Not easy ways, but there are ways.

    or maybe somebody came up with a way to make toothpaste explode...i am still shocked that people can take cell phones, laptops, i-pods and CD players on planes...it is possible to hide a remote device in there...no?

    our rights are luxuries to people in other countries, but they're rights to people who are already legally here, not luxuries.

    your "rights" end at your front door when you venture into public and can affect the lives of others.

    First, I don't think there are any commercial boats. Second, if there are they leave from Florida, which means 2-3 days of driving followed by 1-2 days on a boat. Given that we have JOBS and limited vacation time, it's not possible for us (if it even exists).

    So, the options are flying or not seeing her family. Flying is only a luxury for us if seeing your family is considered a luxury.

    same reason we don't move to rochester: no jobs for people with our education and experience.
