I hate the way our government treats American citizens when it comes to flying. First, off, no-fly list. I was watching a video where a hot-shot Republican Congressman interrogates a DHS staff member on the no-fly list. You don't know if you're on the no-fly list until you're denied entry to the secure area at the airport. If you are - according to the ACLU (https://www.aclu.org/know-your-rights/what-do-if-you-think-youre-no-fly-list) - you must appeal to the Department of Homeland Security. To address this, I'd like to propose a different system: 1) If DHS wishes to place you on a no-fly list, it must first file an affidavit with a Federal Court having jurisdiction over your residence of record, including all pieces of information that DHS believes justifies putting you on the list. Following the filing, DHS must wait until the Court submits a certification that the presented evidence is sufficient. 2) If you wish to then challenge this designation, you may do so by petitioning the local Federal Court to open a case. You do not need to prove your innocence; you simply need to convince the Court that the federal government cannot legally justify keeping you on the said list. Second, TSA. What I hate most is the prospect of having to endure pat-downs & millimeter-wave scans. These should be reserved for suspected terrorists, not every 20th person who comes through the line. Also, let's talk about their "prohibited items" policy. Do we really need to be concerned if I have a filled water bottle in my carry-on bag? Here's an idea: When they go check your ID, they run your information through a computer system. If the system indicates no reason for concern, you are basically immune from more invasive procedures. Otherwise, you will be screened, but nothing except weapons will be seized without probable cause.
