    It is important to say NO to Naked Body Scanners at airports, because naked body scanners at airports is just the beginning. This is what they plan next . . . When will you say enough is enough? Where do you personally draw your line in the sand?

      Hm, let me think about this, somebody having a very fuzzy image of my body versus being blown out of the skies by a mad bomber.

      I can see it'll take some time to think this one through.

        Mad bomber you say?
        Watch this if you dare - eye witnesses say that your "mad bomber" was escorted onto the plane WITHOUT A PASSPORT by govt agents.

        And don't complain when further down the line, you and your family are dosed with radiation at train stations, bus stations, public arenas, schools, and even in the street secretly, without your knowing. Please go ahead and feel very, very safe.

          What's the first part to do with your gripe?

          And we are constantly hit with radio waves at all frequencies without protest!
          Feeling safe is far preferable to feeling paranoid.

              Yes.

              "The TSA says that the records reflect math mistakes and that all the machines are safe. Indeed, even the highest readings listed on some of the records — the numbers that the TSA says were mistakes — appear to be many times less than what the agency says a person absorbs through one day of natural background radiation."

      Too much false protection, creates fear and ignorance among the people. This kind of distortion and misinformation is pretty thick nowadays.

      Too much government, no matter how it is applied is still a bad thing. wink

    I don't think body scans are necessary, there are plenty of other ways that are less expensive.

    If you fly every day, this could start to be a huge problem. There isn't enough data on it for me to want it that is for sure.

    I don't think they are going to get too many of the people they are after, but will probably end up getting the average joe, very frequently. Whether it is marijuana or something along those lines.

    Which certainly wasn't the goal, but I'm sure they'll love it for all the money they will get, never mind the lives they ruin.
