What is up with these protests? What do people want? I just dont get it. When the planes are hijacked everyone points the finger at lackadaisical security.
Hate to tell you but some of us value our rights and enough is enough, the dam scanners don't make us safer, Nappy` said it herself the underware bomber probably would NOT have been caught using the scanners. The makers said the same, Italy tested every make and found they ALL FAILED, a German tv show defeated the scanner,Israel airport security expert calls them "useless".
Looking at naked pictures of children is pedophilia, when the government demands that citizens submit to either a peep show of their person or a grope that's messed up .. and my only fear there's more people like you , not the so-called terrorist. Little kids getting fondled by strangers is ok with you I see.
-Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory said the group did not evaluate the advanced imaging machines for passenger safety. "That was not our role," .>> so much for being proven safe.
What happens if the next bomb is in the ass? Would you be willing to get a probe? This is not a joke and is the next step with bombers, already been tested and it works. So will you bendover and let some person probe your body? > http://tinyurl.com/28umrqa
Now lets talk about the terrorist, they tell us that they're everywhere and yet TSA has never caught 1. So this means a couple things- the threat is wayy overblown or TSA is a failure. But if they can't stop them then why isn't there planes dropping out of the sky daily?
TSA ranges anywhere from 60 to 90% failure rate, and again why isn't there planes dropping.
Now what? don't like it then take the train or drive is a great line but TSA already has started with trains,buses and is now working on highways with truckers.
2005, VIPER teams began to patrol Amtrak’s Northeast Corridor and Los Angeles rail lines, ferries in Washington state, bus stations in Houston, and mass transit systems in Atlanta, Philadelphia, Washington and Baltimore. “We just want to develop the capability to enhance security outside of aviation,” air marshal spokesman David Adams told the Associated Press on December 14 of that year.
Just ask yourself how much are you willing to give up to this so-called threat that when judge by the facts is a falsehood.
Did you drive today? take a shower or bath? all proven to be killers and yet you accept those risk, why?
Always in great Britain, and always grilled -
In England you have to face a gauntlet of questions before they let you on a plane.
Every time in the Netherlands where I always stop off before flying onward. Always being about 7 times. They always came up to me and very politely asked, "May I search you? "-
Just what the hell are you doing to get this? Been going to NL since 94 along with many of my friends and none have ever been searched in England,Belgium,Germany,NL They only do a simple pat down or scan if flying back to the usa. I'm calling BS
I have dark skin/hair and look rather shady at times
and yet its always the same in EU> Goedemorgen , welcome back after looking at our passports or just a simple Hallo, enjoy your stay
Should tell ya about friends smoking hash just outside the front door at Schiphol before heading back home,talk about stinking of pot
Are Americans stupid or what?
Look in the mirror as your very uninformed about TSA.

If you really want to be "safe" you should never leave home. In fact, please do so the rest of us that understand risk/reward is a part of life can move about freely.

An ABC News employee said she was subject to a "demeaning" search at Newark Liberty International Airport Sunday morning."The woman who checked me reached her hands inside my underwear and felt her way around," she said. "It was basically worse than going to the gynecologist. It was embarrassing. It was demeaning. It was inappropriate."http://abcnews.go.com/Travel/tsa-responds-passenger-outrages-underwear-search-happen/story?id=12208932
When you arrive at MCO you must get rescreened
once you've cleared Customs and Immigration just to leave the airport
. This is after getting screened to fly in the first place
My last trip(aug) the nudie-scanners were not there yet, just normal security- shoes off, airport metal detector,xray your carry-on and random patdowns. Yes we both got pulled aside for another ball cupping / crotch grope.
Never knew I could refuse, hmm wait till the next trip coming up

Peter Rez,In an interview with MSNBC he noted that the risk of being in a terrorist attack is so small that any additional cancer risk from the scanners - which is also very tiny - is hardly worth it. (re:Scanners)
Waste of time & money for what?http://www.slate.com/id/2275448
Forgot to add this gem, if the new
pat down was so needed than why wait 10months? Next if the scanners are needed than why shut most off during Thanksgiving travel? Same for the pat downs, very few reports of people getting the grope.
Let not forget, if theres no female screener and they need to search your wife/daughter/mother/little girl then a MALE will have his hands up in her crotch, till they hit the ..... Still feel thats ok ?
