Next time you want to fly somewhere......

Consider the situation you may encounter....take 10 minutes or so and watch this video first.



"Safety" often serves as the excuse for the arbitrary exercise of petty tyranny. Thanks to Mark Crispin Miller for alerting us to the video.

Not just "petty tyranny." The greed element of the former Secretary of Homeland Security, Michael Chertoff, shilling for the manufacturer of the "back scatter" x-ray machines is astounding and disgusting and revolting. http://www.deseretnews.com/article/705355601/Homeland-Security-Secretary-Michael-Chertoff-benefiting-from-scanner-sales.html

Thanks for commenting maesz, and the information.

Ah, greed along with petty tyranny, sounds something like what passes for "progress" in the current version of capitalism.
