The My Little Pony Killer: arethereanybeernamesleft: Have they uncovered guns? Knives?

No and no.

Hey, give credit where credit is due. When bombs are prominently displayed, attached with many wires, painted bright red and have "BOMB" written on them, the TSA finds nearly half.

I've decided to become a commercial airline pilot who refuses to ever be searched. I can't believe I didn't think of this before. Just sit back and let the Benji's roll in. Its not like I need to be searched to do my job or anything anyway.

That settles it. You can't be Val Kilmer's wingman anymore.

Thanks everyone - the petition has expired. I thought we had until midnight, but the White House obviously disagreed.

redmond24: I don't know where I sit on this issue. I don't have a huge problem with these scanners but I figure this petition may get us on the way of better studies, particularly with the cancer element.

People who don't have problems with the scanners should still have problems with federal agencies ignoring court orders.

Boxingoutsider: This is a stupid idea. Planes are incredibly high value targets for terrorists and this is a great way to intimidate them. You don't like it, don't fly. Drive, walk, swim, whatever. 4th amendment doesn't apply IMO as its a voluntary activity that has been attacked many times over the last 40 years.

All the huge pussies who are scared of terrorists can drive, walk, swim, whatever.

HAMMERTOE: Meh. Last time I heard, Obama isn't concerned with privacy.

Except his own.

Excactly, that's why he's released his tax returns but is refusing to release the diary he wrote when he was 3. Thank god we are not supposed to pry into the life of white superrich guys.

Yeah, troll snax
