Is there some way I can get special permission from the government when I go to the airport- see more

it's such a hassle to have to go through taking off your shoes and all. can I get some special pass so I don't have to go through this? Like if I turn in fingerprints and have a background check?

Yes, apply for a NEXUS card. You will be fingerprinted and checked for criminal records. If you pass the test you will have to attend a session to review guidelines and rules and it will cost $50 for the card which is valid for 5 years.
If you are travelling and the airport/border control has a "NEXUS Gate" you can proceed to the gate and bypass much of the security process and the long lines. Use this link to get to the GOES program and click on the NEXUS icon for more information:

Nope. There is no way around airport security. You are not the only person annoyed with this. Get back in the security line. Have a safe flight. :)
