    Do you support the TSA procedures

    I'm curious to see where people across the idealogical spectrum stand on the TSA body scans and pat downs. I realize that the choices may not cover everybody (e.g. you may agree with the scans but not the pat downs) but I don't want to have 12 different options, so do your best to respond accordingly.

    No I don't support government thugs and clods touching me and looking at my junk. If it was private security I wouldn't be as pissed but that would require the retards in Washington to stop subsidizing airports.

    No, I don't support the TSA. However, the reality of the situation, if the Obama administration had them stopped and we were hit he would be blamed.

    The reality is the public in general can be collectively stupid, I'm not surprised.

    These specific measures, IMO, are useless and un-necessarily invasive.

    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.

    Not stupid, the public can be collectively conned into fear.

    When it gets to the point where basic facts are left out [like it being a choice between patdowns, scanner, or not flying, as opposed to what they claim [scanner vs not flying], or making elementary logical errors [taking an objection to X Y or Z methods of screening as an objection to ALL screening [with no proof to support the assertion] for example], those lines become even more blurred, IMO.

    No, it won't do anything to keep us any safer. It's too intrusive and it's my understanding that the scanners wouldn't have caught the underwear bomber.
    If Homeland Security was concerned about terrorists they wouldn't leave our borders wide open for them to walk across.
    Medal detecters, bomb sniffing dogs, scanning luggage and common sense profiling is what's needed.

    Didn't vote as I am not a part of any of the political party lines that you mentioned in your poll. But for the rest. No I don't support the TSA in these extended measures.

    Well I can't wait to see how peoples opinions are when potential bombers start storing stuff up their ass. Then everyone can get raped before they get on a plane, as if though they already weren't by the ticket prices (drum roll, cymbal crash)

In theory, some of those loopholes were understandable, but in practice they sometimes made it possible for millionaires to pay nothing, while a bus driver was paying ten percent of his salary, and that’s crazy." -Reagan
