traitors to Liberty.
What do you think would happen if I go for the pat down next time I travel, drop my pants, spread my cheeks and say "have a look up my asshole."?
Just as Muslim women around the world are saying they will not go through the naked body scanner or a pat-down for religious reasons, neither will I as a Christian woman do the same. If our government chooses to respect a Muslim woman, then our government must also respect a Christian woman for the same reason.
the Bible has an awful lot to say about christian modesty and how you are not supposed to be touched outside of marriage.
if the judge can't say the scanners wouldn't detect plastics, chemicals and liquids then what good is he?
Pat downs and scanners are both a waste of time and money. To be effective, everyone would have to have a cavity search period. It is my understanding the scanner rays cannot penetrate the skin. Drug smugglers have hid drugs in the cavity spaces for years and went undetected. Explosives could be transported and deployed in the same manner.
If the government wants to stop terrorist attacks against our country then we should get out of the foreign countries around the world and mind our own business.
I predict if the blood thirsty government officials (neocons) have to choose between getting a camera stuck up their butts every time they board and airplane or get the hell out of the foreign countries, they will bring our troops home.
Do they use some type of lubrication when they "pat down" your as we used to call them "private parts"?
I`m going to invest in KY jelly if they do.
It is hard to imagine a more stupid or more dangerous way of making decisions than by putting those decisions in the hands of people that pay no price for being wrong.
Can we please have a short with a little girl playing with TSA dolls groping the genitals of a passenger and asking Gestapo questions?
don't fail to mention that the only reason she had to go through that groping was because her parents didn't want her being exposed to radiation.
Isn't that a great choice for a supposed "free" nation...either you go through radiation and nude body scans, or our thugs will simply feel and squeeze your genitals and breast. What the flying hell has happened to Americans. Damn cowards. If you can't tell it pisses me smooth off just thinking about it. I need a boat ride to Jamaica, my family isn't going through this bullshiite anymore.
Anyone in Florida? Surely there is a way to get to Jamaica by boat...and perhaps a stop in Cuba. :O)
We can give up a lot an go on..but dignity should be lost only in our deaths or sacrifice for others.
This is disgraceful.
All of the tough guys going through the scanner are true cowards. They choose to think "they don't mind" because they do not want to face their own cowardice.
At what point do we lose the right to travel?
All of you who say "I don't fly because of this." are equally cowards.
Are we really going to cede our right to travel to these knuckledraggers and profiteers?
Can we please have a drawing of our founders going through TSA screening?
Even the Crown had some respect for modesty, as did the Caesars.

That host, the little turd, don't care to know his name, what county does he live in? Who are his parents? Who were his teachers in school? I've never seen/heard a bigger moron in my life! That show is terrible and all those hosts are numbskulls!
How hard is it to see that these searches are against everything we Americans stand for? Moreover, how hard is it to see that Chartoff and others are making money by installing these machines!!! Someone is getting paid at our expense!

Maybe we could have a little boys against the girls. Mama Grizzly, Minnesota Grizzly, and O'Donnell.
I actually don't have anything against Bachmann or O'Donnell but there's something funny about that other one.
I have an idea. How about we stop stirring up the hornets nest in the middle east and maybe we won't have to worry so much about it.
The suffering is about to begin and it is entirely our fault. We have nobody else to blame.
"And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand?... The Organs would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalin's thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt! If...if...We didn't love freedom enough. And even more – we had no awareness of the real situation.... We purely and simply deserved everything that happened afterward."

Like the tagline as well.
The full body scanners are manufactured by Rapiscan Systems, a firm represented by the Chertoff Group. The Chertoff Group is Michael Chertoff, a dual Israeli/US citizen appointed Secretary of Homeland Security in 2005 by Puppet President George W. Bush. The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) used Obama’s economic stimulus, the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, to purchase 150 Rapiscan machines. Much larger purchases are in the works.
Chertoff was also appointed Assistant Attorney General of the Department of Justice by George W. Bush. Chertoff supervised the 9/11 investigation or non-investigation. Chertoff is also the co-author of the USA PATRIOT Act, a piece of fascist legislation that destroys American civil liberties.
Today Chertoff is using his government credentials to push full body scanners into American airports.

Maybe the TSA should start recruiting in the bath houses.
i'm not sure just letting everyone on planes carry guns is a great idea, but ya the TSA strip searches have gone pretty far
I bet you think letting "everybody" carry them while out-and-about "on the streets" isn't a good idea, either.
What's so special about airplanes?
(I like L. Neil Smith's solution in _The Venus Belt_. The inspection at the boarding - run by the airline - is to make sure the ammo people are using won't damage the aircraft. B-) Don't like it? Take a different company's ride - or buy your own air vehicle.)

That means: For each job "created or saved" about five were destroyed.
I hope I don't have to fly anymore it is no fun to much hassle.

Two years ago we used the train.
This year we went cross-country and back with a travel trailer and tow vehicle - to the tune of about six thousand miles. Took almost three weeks of travel time, leaving little for the visit DESPITE taking four of vacation. (We'd have used the train again but they still won't let us carry our own guns, even in checked baggage. They've been ignoring the congressional mandate by failing to update the rules.)
It is NOT the job of government to "keep us safe" on the air liners. It is the job of the airlines. Government has made air travel hazardous.
Our politicians have made us the target of terrorists by intervening in the affairs of other nations. At the same time, they have made everyone on the airliner helpless. This is what "gun control" is really about. Disarming the law abiding and putting them at the mercy of the criminal element.
I can't understand how the American people can allow a situation where our politicians are not subject to the same indignities as they put on us. All elected and appointed public servants should rely on public transportation, just like the rest of us. Are we to believe that they are special? I don't.
If you don't want naked pictures taken of yourself by the govt., then your option is to be molested. The fact they are doing this to children shows the mentality and depth of depravity of the people running our country. Just say "NO" to scanners and pat down search's.
He asked him what if (cringe) someone came with a bomb in there pants that had no metal parts.
well what if a terrist became an airplane mechanic and decided to loosen a few bolts on the jet engine?
what if they decided to take steroids for six months and was so ripped he could or they could with brute force just take over the plane because they were so strong?
what if they became pilots and crashed the planes?
Could you have a scanner for all the what ifs out there?
what if tens of thousands of people were dying in car accedents each year because of alcahole? what if
Reminds me of a story I once heard. A pastor went to visit one of his church members and the church member told the pastor "I love you so much preacher that if I had two horses I would give you one, If I had two cows I would give you one, If I had two chickens I would give you one" the pastor then said" what if you had two pigs" the man answered" pastor you dont need to go there you know I have two pigs"
I totally agree... or what if they took off their belt and started strangling and whipping people with it? Are they going to ban all passengers from wearing belts? What if they know kung fu and they karate chop people into submission? There is no way the security measures they put in place will anticipate and avert every possible scenario if someone is determined to try something. The judge is correct that we need to let airlines handle security and let passengers and crew police the airplane.
If they trained dogs or pigs to sniff out this stuff it would be a lot less intrusive. I really liked the way he said they need to find another way to check that does not violate our privacy. I do not care if we would be the only country using a different way.
and I'll watch the guy next to me.
