    We certainly need to write, call, and hassle our Senators and Congressman, trying to get them to tackle this. Unless of course our Federal Representatives like Big Government, more intrusion, and loss of our rights. Which is a possibility.

    Also, if you have to fly, and you know you are going to strip naked for them, because you won't walk through the scanner, take the time to pen, in Sharpie, an appropriate message across your chest, and your back if you have any help. Use your imagination. Have fun with it.

    Dude, a sharpie will not work. It's a friggin RADAR. Tin foil letters cut out and glued to the Outside of your drawers would be visible. I'm not sure if the scanner could induce a current or heat on the metal or any conductive thread that you might use. There's a possibility you could get shocked or burned. You could even cut out a silhouette of a clenched fist with an extended middle finger and place it strategically for a greater visual impact. There's even a company that sells creative message clothing specifically to "get your personal message of contempt across" to the screeners.

    Be careful though. I know for a fact that they can assess some hellacious civil fines if you cuss a screener. They may and will probably try irregardless of the actual law and policy to harass, impede, embarrass, and fine you anyway for "hurting their self esteem". IANAL

    All you guys might want to consider wearing tassled nipple pasties when you go through too. Those are always tasteful but fun. :righton: :oops:

    We're not in the scanner, so a sharpie should be fine.

    May I suggest instead a vis-a-vis marker, which is water soluable?

    Having done a couple of triathalons where the race officials write your bib number on your shoulders and thighs, I can attest that even "permanent" markers do wash off after a couple baths or showers. Maybe after just one if you scrub real hard (I never bothered).

    It's ironic. The airport has signs posted at the security line saying not to abuse the TSA personnel, to "give them the respect they deserve." Bring the groper over here by the porn-o-scan, and lets talk about respect the travellers deserve, ok?

    I wonder if all TSA employees go through a scan everyday they report to work. If not, then why do pilots have to? Shouldn't all people, no exceptions, have to be rescanned for every crossing into sterile area?

    Maybe you should read my post a little bit closer. If you say no to the scanner, they make you strip all the way down to nothing, you are then physically naked in front of them, thus, they will see whatever you've written on your body in a sharpie.

    I think that I know that the scanner machine cannot see sharpie on your skin. :righton:

    They have a provision for that. If a salami is detected, they are mandated to turn the machine up to "eleven".

    Well it turns out they are saving all the body scans, and 100 have been leaked to the public! I knew they were doing this. The government saves records of everything that it does. They lied about it. What a shocker, there.

    Yes, your nude picture could now be up on the internet, all thanks to our wonderful government. Aren't you so glad that we have them there to protect us?

    This may or may not be NSFW... I just can't tell... its just too hilarious to not click, though... I'm not sure if I could post the picture of Janet behind the scanner, but my goodness, I laughed until I cried... then I read the comments at the bottom and I laughed and cried some more... Goodness gracious. Click on the link...http://thepeoplescube.com/current-truth ... t6420.html

    They go on as well.

    You know, while they're at it, maybe the TSA can at least let me know if my prostate is ok. Save me a trip to the doctor. The procedure seems similar enough.

    I don't think you're right on this one. I'm pretty sure if you say no to the scanner they will instead give you a pat down, there would be no stripping involved.

    At the very least they could check for a hernia... Would we owe them an Obama-care co-pay if we have them do either though?

    The critical failing in our TSA/Airliner/Airport protection program is that they spend all their time looking for WEAPONS.....
    What they SHOULD be looking for is TERRORISTS, HIJACKERS and KILLERS

    No wonder they can't do it right.....
