    ...I fly out to MN the Monday after Thanksgiving from RDU? I took my aunt and uncle to the airport the other day and noticed that RDU now has the porno-scanners in place (at least in terminal 2). I have certainly read enough stories in the past few days about these intrusions of privacy to last me a lifetime. There's a chance I won't be going on my trip because I have no intention of being scanned or groped. I sure hope my employer is understanding. I stood and watched my aunt and uncle go through. The majority of the people went through the metal detectors. My uncle got scooped up and scanned.

    Anyway, the folks that contend this is not an infringement and no rights to fly are guaranteed by the Constitution need to wake up. We need to make a stand!!! Hopefully I will have the will to stand up to these fascist bullies.

    You'll have all the freedom you'll want when you miss the flight your employer is counting on you to make.

    At least for 99 weeks.

    Well, if you are seriously considering not following your employers orders, I sure would tell them first. Ensure that they know these devices do not have evidence of independent safety inspection and that you will not consent to sexual assault to board an aircraft to avoid using them. Make sure they understand that your attorney will be seeking damages from THEM for requiring exposure to potential excessive irradiation OR sexual assault as terms of continued employment.

    For those who scoff at the liability angle, look at tobacco, asbestos and hostile workplace liability issues. Employers understand risk and legal liability and I expect do not want the expose themselves to the risk of this issue.

    But as with anything else like this, consult your personal attorney. If you don't have one, NOW is the time to fix that. Think of it like having a family doctor and dentist.

    What effect would wrapping yourself in aluminum foil underneath your clothes have on these xray machines??

    Any radiologists in here?

    If the day is too boring, just shove a roll of quarters in your shorts for when you go through the nekkid scanner.

    Hi,

    I live in Raleighwood for the time being and last time I flew out of RDU, they didn't have the scanners. I guess I'm one step closer to telling them not to assault me.

    Find the absolute hottest chick you can, and get in line behind her. She'll get picked for the screening, you'll get to go through the metal detector.
