    Full Frontal Nudity Doesnít Make Us Safer: Abolish the TSA

    The Republicans control the House of Representatives and are bracing for a long battle over the Presidentís health care proposal. In the spirit of bipartisanship and sanity, I propose that the first thing on the chopping block should be an ineffective organization that wastes money, violates our rights, and encourages us to make decisions that imperil our safety. Iím talking about the Transportation Security Administration.

    Bipartisan support should be immediate. For fiscal conservatives, itís hard to come up with a more wasteful agency than the TSA. For privacy advocates, eliminating an organization that requires you to choose between a nude body scan or genital groping in order to board a plane should be a no-brainer.

    But wonít that compromise safety? I doubt it. The airlines have enormous sums of money riding on passenger safety, and the notion that a government bureaucracy has better incentives to provide safe travels than airlines with billions of dollars worth of capital and goodwill on the line strains credibility. This might be beside the point: in 2003, William Anderson incisively argued that some of the steps that airlines (and passengers) would have needed to take to prevent the 9/11 disaster probably would have been illegal.

    Like has been mentioned elsewhere - the Israeli get the job done and do so without inconveniencing most passengers.
    Stand up for what is right, even if you have to stand alone.

    I'm completely with you on this megimoo. The full body scanners are absolutely criminal. I'm done flying until it gets sorted out.

    I wouldn't have any problem with walking through the nudy scanners.
    It seems like that would make the lines go a whole lot faster. And I just
    can't believe that a person sitting for hours viewing thousands of nekked
    scans daily would have the slightest interest in seeing anyone's junk.
    Ever again.

    I wonder with this technology now out there, if the CIA James Bond types
    have regular looking glasses now that can do a nude scan of people they
    encounter. Just think if Jack Bauer had a pair and could instantly assess
    what he's up against hidden on others in the room up front.

    With any normal ass digital camera and a few bucks you can make your own infrared camera that can see through thin synthetic clothing.

    To be clear; the camera has to be an "ass" camera and can only see through "thin synthetic" clothing?
    Is this something Walmart sells?
