Scan Her Brightly

They can detect the size and shape of your genitals, put you at greater risk for cancer, and shred the 4th amendment, all in under ten seconds. They can't tell the difference between prostheses and plastic explosives, detect materials inside the body or guarantee that you won't still be molested by a TSA worker.

The "naked body scanners", our nation's newest security theater prop, is not making us safer. It's for profit, not protection.

My (bootlicking) father, around the Thanksgiving Day dinner table suggested we have a frank discussion about exactly how far we're willing to erode our liberty in the name of safety. Of course my answer was not at all.

Ron Paul had some strong words for the TSA gropers on the Alex Jones Show last week.
