Default TSA Body Scanners

Well it has been all over the news for the last few days, I was wondering everyones thought on it. I personally went threw one of these at Miami International Airport a few months ago, at the time I didn't think much of it...until now. I wish the feds would just be straight forward and stop using the excuse they're looking for bombs, when in fact all they're looking for is money smuggling, as well as drugs....

Nah, they're just trying to see a glimpse of my glorious ****.

I'm not going to deprive them of that privilege

Doesn't phase me, I gave up any expectation of privacy when I enlisted anyways, if it was every single person every single time they flew and added a ridiculous amount of time to my going through security, I may have a problem with it... but it doesn't, so I don't. Just something else people decided to bitch about because they hate theirs lives.

I don't mind showing my **** off, but apparently numerous digital images were leaked. People shouldn't have to show off their ***** and pussies if they don't want to.

If they don't want to share pics, they can always opt out and go for the groping option. At first I was like, next time I fly I'm gonna **** with the TSA people, but it's not their decision, it's somebody else's designed to make the public feel safe. Whatever works, I guess. Maybe I'll strap a footlong sausage to my leg next time just to see how the scanner people react.

what are those things for anyway? ceramic knives? exploding butt plugs?

i've got a better idea. people who fly from countries which like to blow **** up can take the ****** bus. i'm serious, they can fly in to mexico city and take the bus to any state they like. if they want to blow up the bus, then be my guest. don't care.

Were screwed either way.

If they scan us, their invading our privacy and wasting our time.

If they don't and someone blows up a plane, then why didn't they do something about it?

Honestly, I don't see the problem. Been through 'em at San Diego twice, doesn't take much longer than the regular magnetometer (and much faster than the puffer/sniffer thing they had for a while) and if some TSA lackey wants to bask in the radiance of a low-rez image of my glorious ****, who cares?

These ******* trying to get everyone to request a pat-down ILO the backscatter machine come the Thanksgiving rush **** me off.

sidebar: it's now officially the future:

There is a fine line between "the public's best interest" and authoritarianism.

I love this:

Myth: TSA Officers are sharing AIT images they are taking with their cell phones.
Fact: Our officers are prohibited from bringing electronic devices such as cell phones into the AIT viewing room. This is a fireable offense and no such reports have been substantiated.
Quote:
Myth: All children will receive pat-downs.
Fact: TSA officers are trained to work with parents to ensure a respectful screening process for the entire family, while providing the best possible security for all travelers. Children 12 years old and under who require extra screening will receive a modified pat down.
The description of the screening is pretty ugly where they discuss "checking the folds of the body." Watch one of the TSA screening demos, it's pretty nasty. They're going to feel between your butt-cheeks, taint, around your nuts, between your nuts and donger, and yes...they feel in the vajayjay.

also, the TSA is pulling video they don't like from youtube due to "copyright infringement." So you can't watch them check the anus and vagina of a toddler anymore.

In 1991 when I was traveling through Amsterdam airport on my way to Italy. I was stopped by several military guys while walking trough the terminal. I was escorted to a private room where I received a very thorough pat down. I got to keep my close on (no rubber glove .

When they were done I was sent on my way. I chalked it up to them either doing their job, or they were perverts. Either way, I was ok with it, they had big guns.

Some of us would feel a lot better about the whole thing if the pat down person was a cute female. ****, I would probably opt for a strip search were that the case!

I agree with this. Everyone bitching hates it until another plane is hijacked.

That's bullshit. This doesn't make anyone even the slightest bit safer. Terrorists are already stuffing bombs up their anuses - will you submit to cavity searches when our government decides that's what's necessary for our safety?

You are 3000 times more likely to die in your car than you are in a hijacked or bombed airplane. Stop giving up your rights for the appearance of more safety.

...or until nude pictures of you go to your employer or the internet in general. What if your GF is hot, and someone leaks pictures of her on the internet, and suddenly she's a part of pop culture. Even better, do you think the TSA needs to check toddler vagina to fly?
