Are trains and subways next?

As well as ships and federal buildings for the scanners?

What will it take for some of you to say enough is enough?

  • Have you heard about the mobile scanner van things? Apparently they are testing this out.
    I guess the 4th Amendment is just some words on a piece of paper. It doesn't protect us from this kind of shit or anything

  • No, the people don't have ANY power. None at all.
    God it's amazing how cowed people have gotten in the last couple of decades. Just bend over and take it.

    You guys can do that. I am going to exercise my rights to protest, to contact my representatives, the airline I frequent, the airport I fly out of, tourist destinations...anyone and everyone who is negatively impacted by this bullshit.

  • Trains and buses- it would never happen. Honestly it's kind of scary to think that anyone can board a train or a bus with a gun, bomb, etc. There is NO SECURITY at all.

  • As long as people like Michael Chertoff and George Soros are making money off these scanners, we can expect them to pop up all over. Both political parties are getting lots of money from lobbyists to make sure they are in places other than airports.
