More 'flying is a privilege' tripe

A Boston Herald editorial has this choice line:
And to the civil libertarians who whine about the potential for privacy violations or profiling, well, feel free to avoid the airport.
 We now live in a world where pointing out how a policy enacted by a rogue agency conflicts with our natural rights, as reinforced in the country's founding documents, is "whining." And, nevermind about that whole freedom of movement thing that has been upheld numerous times by the Supreme Court as a constitutional right: you're free to move as long as you use the types of transportation that your betters insist upon!
