    Re: Do you support the TSA procedures

    Absolutely AGAINST this procedure on so many levels :
    1 - It is unconstitutional; guilty until proven innocent, violates your person.
    2 - The scanner DOES give you a dose of x-rays, granted a small amount, but you are further exposed to a higher then normal radiation in flight, and the scans DO show bones of legs / fingers.
    3 - The scanner produces a high def view of a persons genitals and so photographing children in such a way violates child porn laws in many places
    4 - IN cases of attempted plane bombings the perpetrator got around any security checks, and so putting people through this is senseless.
    5 - The TSA agents are trained for SECURITY NOT as medical professionals dealing with radiation.
    6 - Pat downs of the genitals over the clothes is a criminal misdemeanor, under the clothes is sexual assault.
    7 - It's a tactic of humiliation and dominance.
    8 - Sexual predators and felons are getting jobs at the TSA
    9 - This is security theater
    10 - "Who says it's gotta be a man to grab another man's privates, I would get a woman to do it and if she's ugly I can close my eyes and if I'm lucky I'll get a happy ending." - Gerald Celente

    Don't like the rules, don't fly
    No, this MUST be challenged, even look at the circumstance surrounding these things getting put in place. Chertoff orders these machines and right at the time the order is ready for mass delivery and implementation of these systems, all of a sudden some retard gets past security with the help of a "sharp dressed man" who insists that they let him on the plane without credentials, and then in the news they say 'well, good thing that they just came out with this new machine to prevent people from trying to blow their balls off at 40000 ft. Then to top it off, once he's out of politics, Chertoff goes and gets a job running the company that makes the machines he bought with his political clout.

    Oh, and don't fly... so what next, there's gonna be some lunatic strap a bomb to his chest in a mall somewhere and all of a sudden these body scanners gotta go into the malls??? Where does it end?? How much will YOU PUT UP WITH??? If they have to do an inspection of all your bodily cavities???

    Or maybe you gotta go through the scanner to leave your house in the morning??

    My god... ya... that's what's next... full body cavity search to board an aircraft.

    Hey TSA agents, is it really worth wearing that fake badge and feel like you have authority for the wage you make if you gotta do this to people.

    Maybe I'm jumping the gun... please tell me that's a joke article?

    Re: Do you support the TSA procedures

    What I find interesting is that opposition to the measures seems to run pretty strongly AGAINST regardless of political idealogy.

    Re: Do you support the TSA procedures

    I absolutely do not support this thuggery. They haven't even demonstrated that their tactics work, they have never once stopped a terrorist boarding a plane and they admit that even had they been doing patdowns and scans of terrorists like the underwear bomber, they likely wouldn't have caught it. They're just wasting time, making a show and pissing people off.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Strip searches and pat downs are blatant violation 4th amendment unless you are in the process of being arrested. This should be nipped in the butt before it spreads to train,bus stations, just driving your car on the street and anywhere else. Because I am sure that all around the world those terrorist attacks happen more frequently on trains, buses and on the road than in airplanes.So the justification they used for violating your rights before you board the plane can be used at train stations, bus depots, or even while driving on the road(they do make mobile x-ray machines).

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    But I really see little problem with either the scans or the pat downs. And I actually think few people do.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    It's too invasive. They need proof before they can do something so aggressive.

    Nationalism in high dosages may be hazardous to your health. Please consult a psychiatrist before beginning a regular regimen, and if feelings of elitism and douchbaggery continue, discontinue immediately before you become unable to do so on your own.
