Hey, It Might Feel Good!

What might feel good? Getting felt-up at the airport by some affirmative-action, former welfare recipient in a uniform. Personally, i usually like a drink or a kiss before getting my junk felt, but that's just me. And now we have senators, and other privileged elites, telling us that having your private parts invaded, in public, is no big deal. What they fail to mention is the fact they they don't have to suffer this embarrassment. Also, pilots and their crews are now saying they shouldn't have to go through this either. Apparently, they believe they're more trustworthy than we are. They may be, but at least we're sober.

Obviously, any rational person realizes the need for tough and comprehensive security at our airports. But is this it? IMO, it is not. While this type of "pat-down", (it's actually a search) is common for people being arrested or investigated by police, it will do very little, if anything, to stop a terrorist. It's simply a politically-motivated show for the brain-dead public. What bothers me most is not just the search, but the fact that we have, and have had, an almost fool-proof system staring us right in the face for a long time. Want a clue? When was the last time terrorists tried taking or boarding an Israeli plane?

So long as we put political correctness and our fear of even possibly offending anything or anyone above our own safety, we will never be safe. All we're doing is telling the world that we are in fact, a nation of mindless sheep... (a.k.a. targets)

OK, lemme play Devil's Advocate.

WHY, oh WHY is it that NO ONE wants to go thru the scanners?? What's the rub?

I've seen the pictures of the scans. It's NOT exactly like Paris Hilton's IR camera work. You can't 'see' nipples, peckers or anything else in any sense of 'standing naked' in a public place. The scans are lumpy, bumpy and not pornographic at all. I gotta tell you, to me this is the Obama version of Clinton's bombing the baby food factory to get us OFF of the Lewinski story. If we're all outraged at goofy assed body scans, what REAL outrage are we missing!?

"The [Jihadikaze profile] is very specific, as it's a rare person who will sacrifice his life to destroy an airplane. Protestants aren't doing that. Catholics aren't doing it. Nor are Buddhists, Taoists, Zoroastrians or Hare Krishna. In our age, this is a method of people who 100 percent of the time are Muslim jihadists and 99 percent of the time are non-white. And only the idiotic -- or the suicidal -- ignores such correlation. Now, we all know what kind of suicidal idiocy engenders such blindness: a politically correct brand that panders to the sensitivities of vocal, politically favored minority groups such as Muslims. But what about the sensitivities of millions of Americans who have to tolerate intrusive body scanning and pat-downs and watch their children subjected to same?"

I don't get back on a plane until 12/5. No scanners yet at Austin or Honolulu, so I've been mercifully spared the porn-scans /genital-gropes.

I understand that even the people who LIKE the genital-gropes end up missing their flights – they just want to go home and have a cigarette. (Credit that to a caller on Rush.)

When the time comes, I figure I’ll let them measure my penis digitally rather than manually.

Anyone know where I could pick up some radiation badges? I wonder if they’d let me wear one through their little contraption?

You wanna really mess with them? Wear a mylar bag around your nuggets. Then, WHEN they yell at you, tell them you got the idea from someone in the Congressional Offices of (enter your least favorite Congress critter here). Say you wer4e concerned about radiation and that's what they told you the best solution is.

But we need to pass the idea around, that way LOTS of guys to do it, and the TSA goons won't think you're NUTS!!

I'm wondering if they feel between the folds in an obese persons body. Haven't heard a word about it.
