  • Obama Orders Billion Dollars In Security Strip-Search Scanners

    The whole title is: Obama Orders Billion Dollars In Security Strip-Search Scanners – TSA Agents Check Passengers Genitals – Why?

    I read recently where some people are suing the TSA for sexual molestation. Sounds like they are justified.

    The rest of the story:

    I did not get the time to listen to the whole story, but on Fox news this morning it was stated that even Captian Sully doesn't like the full scan. I know that I would have second thoughts of having that muck x-rays shot through me!

      X-rays shot through you or get fondled by someone you don't know. Read a post by a guy who "opted out" of the scan, so was taken to a cubicle for the "pat down". Told the screener, "If you touch my junk, I'll have you arrested." Chaos ensued. He didn't get on the airplane and managed a refund on his ticket, all while being threated with a 10 thousand dollar fine.

      When they decided that a female wearing a DD bra can carry enough explosives to bring down an airplane, I noticed I always got singled out for "special screening" which meant they squeezed my boobs. So now, I make sure to wear a sports bra which has no metal underwires and squash the goods to where I don't appear to have enough room to blow them up.

      This full-body porn-o-scan is a whole new ball of wax.

        I decided to just stop flying when I found out about the young lady that was basically jailed because she did not want this scan. Between the terrorists, going through all the security measures, the cost, delays, being left on the tarmac and at the mercy of a faceless suit, drunk pilots, beligerent flight attendants, etc it is just not worth it for me. I would rather take a nice leisurely drive through the country rocking to my music or listening to my latest audio book. Keep in mind, I do this with my 4 year old child in the backseat and still prefer this method of travel over airlines. Yes, it is longer, more of a hassle, and sometimes more expensive. However, I am more in control of the situation. I decided when and where we will stop, how fast we will get there or not get there and NO ONE will pat my boobs down... unless I decide they need a good patting down... or they pay me real good.... or he's hugh jackman... But other than that, my boobs and all the porno pics (xray scans) entailed therein are under my control.

          Exactly. If you are against it stop flying. I haven't boarded a plane since the Burger King workers started grabbing everyone's junk in 2002. We control what they do. If we stop flying they will change. It's called the free market.

            I snorted my drink through my nose laughing so hard at this one. Good one, survivorman!

              Thanks. Some people would take that as an insult lol. I was boarding a plane in 2002 and I got the rubber glove treatment from a guy who at best had a 7th grade education. He wouldn't have beeen able to form anything other than a conjunction if you paid him. I said never again. Since then I have either driven or taken the train.

                This episode (happened Sunday in San Diego) has gone viral. Rush and Laura both talked about it today.

                  And then, there's this:

                  All we have to do is dress in hajib when traveling.

                  Is there any sanity left in the world?

                      We have pretty much stopped flying, but I just bought tickets for Orlando. Decided that as long as my daughter still loves the princesses we needed to make the trip to Disney and it is just too far to drive. We are driving to NY for Christmas and 14 hours is long enough.

                      It will be interesting if in 20 yrs, business men/women start getting cancer and if they can sue. As long as I get to choose to have a female screener for my pat down, maybe I can save soom money(just kidding).

                        And all this nonsense because the PC crowd does not want "profiling".
                        Who knew ,but you can't fix stupid, especially in the Government-"just doing my job" .

                          You sure have that right!

                          When I see crap like this, I know that political correctness has become a suicide pact.

                            I told my wife today that when we fly I don't mind the scanner so much for myself(not happy about it either), but that I really did not want my 4 yr old going through. Mainly because I do not feel there has been sufficient testing, but have you seen that video of them patting down that screaming kid. I am not real happy about the idea of some recently paroled child molester touching my kid either. Hopefully by the time I travel, these holidays will have worked much of this out.

                              They say it is the same amount of Rads you get at altitude. Well yeah if your riding on the OUTSIDE of the plane!
