I never seen it. I'm not trying to be a dick. Its just that anarchy doesn't seem like a very reasonable position given human history.

In what was your concentration?

Look, I think airports should not be operated by the government. But its not going to make flying a "right."

In my mind, "anarchy" or "anti-statism" or "anarcho-capitalism" or what-not is simply being against government violence and coercion. That seems like a pretty reasonable position to me.

I'd rather not stay too much due to aforementioned crazy Poli Board stalker. Feel free to write me off board if you require more info.

No need. I just love History. It's fascinating how cyclical it is.

re: Drug sniffing dogs at airport


Last time I was flying out of New Orleans they had a dog to sniff people. I loved it since if the dog approved you you didn't have to take off your shoes or take liquids or electronics out of your bag. It was much more efficient and the dog even licked my hand (probably smelled my dogs).

Dogs cost less than TSA employees and cancer causing xray machines

And it was much less intrusive than having to strip down and take everything out of your bag.

I do when strict and documented training/certifications are regularly conducted.

Flying is not a right nor is it a government sanctioned privilege. I think it is a contractual agreement between a person and a private business ie the airline. The airlines should be running the security at the airports. They are forced to pay for it now. I betting they could do a better job.

quote:

Little by little, inch by inch - training us all to be loyal subjects with fewer and fewer rights and less and less privacy. You are presumed guilty simply because you are alive.


I firmly believe that there are different levels to your presumption of privacy. In a public place is different than in your home. If the airlines were in charge of their own security in airports, would you have a problem with them using dogs to screen passengers? Particularly if this contract I mentioned earlier called for the airlines to take responsible actions to prevent terrorism or criminal activity on their flights that are used by society as a whole.

The argument is that you have no right to fly on an airplane and airports are owned by the government. Thus, to enter the terminal, you must consent to a search. You can refuse the search; you just won't be able to enter the terminal.


I hate gov't as much as anybody does but this is the correct answer.

Did you not read the Supreme court decision posted by five0.

Drug dogs can sniff "free air" outside your auto, or your luggage at an airport.

No they don't, but you have no right to board their plane.

The problem with this argument is that there are very few activities in life that one has a "right" to by that definition.

Driving? Nope.

Walking in a public park? Nope.

Riding the public bus? Nope.

Hell, going to college? Nope.

If everything the govt has its fingers on that surrounds an elective activity is subject to an abdication of rights, we're kinda fricked.

Agree with Antonio. The dogs are sniffing the air outside the bags. That sounds like the public domain to me. If not I will have to start getting an arrest warrant every time I take a breath while on duty because I'm technically seizing the air that I breath.


If the dogs are only sniffing air outside of bags they have no idea from where the smell emanates other than snagging the nearest person

Not PC IMO

They can detect drugs. The problem is lazy or underfunded agencies not keeping current on certifications and/or training. When you have a dog and handler that can pass blind and double blind certifications they are very useful tools. Some of the most impressive dogs I have every seen are two little beagles that are tracking dogs. They can run all day and I have never seen them not track a person if called in within time. The key is to not only certify the dog(s), but also the handler. Our K9s and their handlers train weekly. We have narcotics dogs and patrol dogs (big mean Shepherd LANDSHARKS).

re: Drug sniffing dogs at airport


I always kind of thought if it as being on their turf, so their rules. Yeah it's a slippery slope. It'd be nice if people had enough collective common sense to say what areas a person should be completely free and areas where they shouldn't. The airport is a place where 99 percent of the population doesn't mind giving up freedom. They just don't want the govt and libs to run with it and say well now we have power at the airport why can't we have power at your workplace and in your home.
