Question of the Day about all this groping going on in Airports today? Would you go through the "naked" machine or go for the grope? Or tell them to shove it and leave.

Personally I think we should use profiling *GASP* (she said the profiling word) and better intelligence methods. But I'm sure that won't go over well either. Not PC. But works. Teach the screeners to read body language and facial expressions, tics, etc. Teach them the right questions to ask and how to judge the reactions. Use dogs. Also, I wonder if ultra sound technology could be adapted for use which would also show if anyone were carrying anything inside their bodies.

In the meantime I suppose if I really needed to go somewhere I'd simply step through the machine and deal with it. In the meantime, however, be working to get this changed...based on our 4Th amendment rights. After all, it's not like the do this to every single passenger.

I hear a huge uproar, but I'm wondering if these people will really all stand up for their rights by opting out in mass during the holidays.

I mean we've lead ourselves here by giving so much control for our safety over to the government. Complacency is never a good thing, yet we have been so I find it ironic when folks suddenly have a moment of independent thinking and cry fowl. I also find it funny when people cry and complain, yet they never come up with any alternative solutions. Instead they fill the Internet with complaints.

Calling all TSA agents pedophiles and perverts, claiming that next they will want to do body cavity searches, calling the scanners porno machines is simply not an intelligent way to get your point across or to make changes.

So what's your take on it? (my shameless attempt to get some discussion going here)
