In the News As none other I know how problematic it is to discuss matters related to politics on the web. However, every now and then, there's no way around it, and this is one of those moments. There's this thing going on at airports in the US, and while many will see it as a separate issue, the body scanner issue, and the sad stories it has spawned, are symptoms of a far larger problem that is a direct threat to everything we've fought for during and since the Enlightenment.

I'm going to have to be vulgar here, so excuse me, but I'm forced to because of the absurdity of the US "security".

If you've studied any modern "art", you'll have seen the amazing ability of "artists" to stash things up their, uhm, private parts - females especially have a large "capacity" for such storage.

This is so easy to do, and cannot be picked up by the rape-pedophile scanners, that the only way to ensure the "safety" of the american flying public is to perform bodily groping up these said parts. A couple of terrorists could stash enough powder (or whatever) in these parts to do whatever they intend to do.

The absurdity of america is reaching insane levels.

They keep thinking this will improve security, but it isn't so.

They should focus their work on intelligence, almost every time they caught someone it usually was someone they already knew and where following, because of said intelligence.
