    The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.

    If they were a terrorist, it would hardly matter. A airport is still a pretty good place to blow yourself up.

    Not if their handlers had specifically told them to blow up the plane. the typical terrorist/suicide bomber isn't much on original thinking, they are good at following orders. If the boss tells them to blow up a plane and the TSA turns them away, they will more likely than not simply leave and try again later or at a different airport.

    and there is also the fact that a small explosive detonated in the airport might kill a few people close by and do a little damage but the same small explosive detonated on a plane will bring it down and kill everyone.

    I also doubt that, terrorists. At least Western/home grown ones, are generally speaking highly educated.

    Proximity. Airports are generally packed, it would kill dozens and harm even more. No different to a plane. A plane is unoriginal, no terrorist would be stupid enough to go down that route anymore.

    They'd probably be after trains or buses (like 7/7). Areas where there isn't that much security but still big enough to cause damage/impact.

    Thats why we get the government out of the airport business. Its time to fully privatize them and let them be in charge of their own security.

    Jones is ok, his trade protectionist views annoy me but he is dead on when it comes to civil liberties.

    On behalf of corporate pilots every where; thank you TSA for making my job more secure
    You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love.For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.”

    Here is a good summary on the possible negative health effects:
    Millimeter wave scanner - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Here is a page that shows just how much the scanner reveals of your body:
    TSA: How It Works

    I can't find the policy on-line, but I know that the new policy is that the screeners must use the front of their hands AND MUST check sensative areas (i.e. groin, breasts and butt).
