    Cute, even after you go thru the scanner, they still want to molest you.

    'I was so humiliated'
    Marlene McCarthy of Rhode Island said she went through the body scanner and was told by a TSA agent to step aside. In "full view of everyone," McCarthy said in an e-mail, the agent "immediately put the back of her hand on my right side chest and I explained I wore a prosthesis.
    "Then, she put her full hands ... one on top and one on the bottom of my 'breast' and moved the prosthesis left, right, up, down and said 'OK.' I was so humiliated.

    Even the TSA perverts would want to wear multiple layers of latex to grab that smelly monkey.

    Well, yea. I would assume if they SEE something on the scanner, they would want to check it out. So that part jives.

    What doesn't work is how they are doing that, and the impact on the people they are doing it to.

    Exactly, don't use any common sense or discretion, just automatically debase and humiliate people in a public setting. Anyone with a disability has this kind of inhuman treatment to look forward to.

    My wife works with a United pilot that Volunteers at our church he was saying that the scanner will not detect an explosive device that they stick up their rear ends which has happened in the middle eastl and they also have stuffed bombs in side dogs but the dogs died before the were put on the plane. The only way to stop it is to profile and if they don't like it they can go back to the litter box where they belong.:smt013

    Uncle Charlie sums this up well.

    From http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2010/11/18/AR2010111804494.html

    That riff is a crowd-pleaser because everyone knows that the entire apparatus of the security line is a national homage to political correctness. Nowhere do more people meekly acquiesce to more useless inconvenience and needless indignity for less purpose. Wizened seniors strain to untie their shoes; beltless salesmen struggle comically to hold up their pants; 3-year-olds scream while being searched insanely for explosives - when everyone, everyone, knows that none of these people is a threat to anyone.

    Edited for emphasis and link to the story.

    That's too funny! I fell out of my chair. Damn.

    BTW, that smelly monkey won't be speaker of the house come January and it'll be back to flying commercially. But I think that congresscritters have special access at Reagan National Airport.

    To prevent profiling against the monkeys as we assume that they ALL smell far better than the afore mentioned Pelosi monkey, we must sniff every other animal in the animal kingdom just so we can be politically correct and not cause undue shame on the monkeys. In this we will document every animals smell. We will make all the other animals strip and assume the position for sniff inspection. Then if we think we sniff something that smells like a monkey we will openly humiliate it until we are confident that it is not a monkey and let it go. If we find that it is a monkey then we will acquit it on 224 counts of being a monkey and slap its paw for conspiracy to blow up the zoo’s monkey house.

    After doing all this, the original Pelosi monkey will still smell and we have changed nothing other than the loss of dignity and respect in the animal kingdom.

    Good think we have rights as humans so this can't happen to us.:wow::wow:

    Good bumper stickers... Especially like the last one...

    I'd add one: "We move more junk that Waste Management"

    Be sure to ask your friendly TSA'er to change their gloves before they touch your junk since they probably used the same gloves on the last dozen sets of junk...
    http://www.wnd.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.view&pageId=231733

    I think we are going too far... Now "they" are looking at adding scanners to trains, boats and metros...
    http://thehill.com/homenews/adminis...scanners-could-be-trains-boats-and-the-metro-

    I read where one TSA dude says he carries 10-12 pair in his pocket and changes them out... What the bozo doesn't understand is he put his dirty hands in his pockets and any gloves he pulls out will have they same germs on those as well. Frekin idiots!!! Or should I say Fecal idiots!!!
