Here's why constant "bitching" works! (new poll)

Zogby Interactive:

61% Oppose Full Body Scans and TSA Pat Downs;

48% Will Seek Alternative to Flying

In a matter of days, the polls have gone from "80% mildly approve" to 61% oppose BOTH security measures!

  • what's getting old are those who come into posts which feature a subject that annoys them for the sole purpose of whining about them .

  • I'm not surprised. I was telling my parents a few nights ago that I thought this would happen.

  • Woot..awesome.I guess we will see what happens but remember Americans by and large did not want Obamacare and we got it anyway.You do have a point though if enough folks stop flying the airports will do something.

    To the one bitching about Gal posting on this..I am tired of the bitching about her posts.I vote down all who bitch about them.

  • And so how has that changed what is actually happening at the airports?


     My husband flew from LAX to Vegas and back today...............no additional screening done!

  • I, for one, have changed my opinion. After really thinking about what it means and also looking beyond the Constitutional reasons against it. I was always against the body scanners. The pat downs I was more ok with until all the reports about how invading it is. It's easy to sit back and say that "if it's for our safety then it's worth it" when you haven't been subjected to it. But when I actually thought about how I'd feel being touched like that or my dd being touched like that, it's disturbing.
