is that a joke?! they'd rather women be groped up their skirts than have men see their outline?

it's not an outline. It's a fairly detailed picture google images link

I apologize if this is out of line, but from what I've read of it, cancer survivors are advised not to go through the machines.


They aren't every nice to survivors:

TSA pat-down leaves traveler covered in urine
'I was absolutely humiliated,' said bladder cancer survivor

Flight attendant forced to remove prosthetic breast during screening

None of this bothers me in the slightest. I have no problems with the x-ray machines or the thorough pat downs (though I do think both are completely pointless).

Right, I knew this. I wonder if I can do the reverse.

If you are x-rayed, and they don't like what you look like nekkid, they will ALSO pat you down...

Anyone who thinks the scanners are actually effective is just foolish. There are much better was of detecting explosives. That's why, eventhough most packages are x-rayed, hazards are always detected. You know what does detect the hazards? Dogs. I do not know why the TSA does not just put a couple explosive sniffing dogs at each gate. Personally I would much rather a dog sniff my crotch than a TSA agent.

I thought that dogs can't detect the newer PETN explosives used in the last couple of attempts?

I saw this at JFK recently, two frum women in skirts and sheitels were given the pat down, I was half wondering if there was some profiling being done. It was a women officer doing the pat-down, I'd be surprised if they would let a man sheck a woman for lawsuit reasons.

I was recently at the airport, and though I passed the scanner test, I was randomly selected for a hand swab test which tests for explosive chemicals residue in the skin.
Sometimes I wonder why some elites work so hard in an unethical manner to gain wealth and power: they can't take any of their wealth and power with them when they die. Philosophically looking at it, if there is a G-d, they will have an eternity of suffering to pay for their crimes against humanity. And if there is no G-d, then once they die, they will have no memories and conscious awareness of their success in life because their consciousness and memories are lost for eternity, becoming nothing more than dirt in the ground. So, these elites in the end lose either way. The 100 years of life living like a king is just a drop of water in the infinite ocean of time that they will experience suffering at the hands of G-d, or not experience in a state of non-existence.

Talking about the TSA, what about items missing from suitcases that had a label on them that they were checked by the TSA.
