    So I guess by getting yourself charged with something, it means you've agreed, huh?

    How about when I go to pay property taxes, or get my GWL, or register my vehicle, or jury duty or or or ?

    Don't forget sporting events as well. They will eventually have these things popped up everywhere that people gather.

    Millimeter wave scanners are a form of Radar and Radar is radiation. Low level radiation, but still radiation. Radiation is cumulative. There is a reason you don’t walk in front of aircraft when they are testing the Radar. I will be refusing the scanners at the airport and anywhere else they are. A groping will only hurt for a while. Radiation will kill you.

    And while we are on the subject -Here's a solution to all the controversy over full-body scanners at the airports:

    All we need to do is develop a booth that you can step into that will not X-ray you, but will detonate any explosive device you may have hidden on or in your body. The explosion will be contained within the sealed booth.

    This would be a win-win for everyone. There would be none of this crap about racial profiling and the device would eliminate long and expensive trials.

    This is so simple that it's brilliant. I can see it now: you're in the airport terminal and you hear a muffled explosion. Shortly thereafter an announcement comes over the PA system, "Attention, standby passengers! We now have a seat available on flight number..."
