I have to make the obligitory comparison. What do you think would be happening in the liberal mainstream media if Bush were still in office and these TSA searches were going on?
Aside from that, I just have to laugh at this entire TSA search, pat-down thing. First of all, I you have to touch my junk to allow me on an airplane….OK. I don’t get my junked touched that often, by somebody else anyway, so I’ll take it where I can get it. I think it might open up some job opportunities for rappers, because nobody has more experience in junk-touching than hip-hoppers. They do it so casually as part of everyday life, maybe we should hire some of them to train the TSA. We could even start playing rap music at security check-points and that would make the whole touching of the junk seem appropriate. We could call this the Kanye Procedure.
Secondly, is it just me, or are those body scan pictures we see floating around the internet kind of hot? Somebody, right now is developing a website called bodyscanxxx.com, where you can pay a monthly membership to see body scan images from around the world. It will have all kinds of diferent categories…Babes, Asians, BBW.
We could turn all this into a new source of revenue to help fund Homeland Security. If you want a pat down, it costs $1.99 per minute. Hot chicks could be paid for the rights to their body scan images and those could be sold at a profit to the porn industry. If you’re an exhibitionist, you would have to pay for the scan. While were at it, why not install stripper poles with built in metal detectors. Couple of spins with no alarms going off…you’re good to fly!
I could even see Donald Trump launching the Miss Body Scan USA pagent. Ryan Secrest could host.
I know all this sounds fantastic, but it begs the question, Would any of this really be a problem if we handled airport security with some common sense? Before 9/11, how many hi-jackings of U.S. airliners can you recall? Since 9/11, and including it, what group of people have been most likely to try and blow-up or hi-jack an airplane? Why don’t we concentrate on those people? Yes, it’s called profiling and we should do it. Everybody does it. Every business, your friends, the door guy at the club, your waiter, you do it everyday. It’s a basic tool of societal interaction….so let’s allow the cops and TSA to do it too!
