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.

And all for a bunch of out-of-touch old fogeys in the last whitehouse.


While the problem didn't start with the current administration, they're the ones responsible for the new scanners and pat down procedures.

My few years of stay in America gave me a valuable lesson: Never trust American politicians.
