    Re: Are planned airport scanners just a scam?

    Being quite libertarian in my views I must agree that body scanners are not the best investment we can make while profiling would be. We must however, in our hyper-capitalistic corporatocracy, invest in commercial solutions instead of investing in people. Good training in profiling for TSA employees would be our best option but for some reason if a corporation can make a buck we seem to HAVE to give them the money. It's like an addiction or something and we know addicts never make good choices in regards to their addiction. We need an... intervention.

    New twist, now the scanner may be breaking child porn laws.

    Then your trip must have been before August 2007. That's when the ban was lifted.
