That'll work! Set it up on the dance floor, hook it up to a giant screen overhead. You know people (read: hotties) will not be able to resist shaking their groove thangs through the scanner.

Body scanners/frisking should not be a condition of travel enforced by Washington.

All airport security should be conducted by the airlines. Security would be better and at a lower cost, and the consumer would be free to choose how much risk they want to bear for themselves.

IIRC, it was before 9/11 and then the DC boys and girls, with all of their bullsh....er...infinite wisdom decided that we need the TSA and the motherland...er....Homeland Security.

Biggest increase in size of federal government (employee wise) in history.

I'm confident that if people were more aware of what they were the outcry would have been much stronger. Unfortunately, the apathy of the most rules, as always.
Why do you think the phrase 'low information voter' is starting to be used by some? Irrespective of political leaning, most of Americans are willfully uninformed.
