Americans have become weak and stupid

This is proof that Americans have become weak and stupid.

A CBS News poll found that 81 percent of Americans approved of full-body scanners, 15 percent were opposed and 4 percent were undecided.

Sari Koshetz, spokeswoman for TSA, said Monday that “98 percent of passengers directed to go through … scanners have been happy to do so. If I’ve seen or heard any misconceptions here, it’s that this is a major controversy nationwide. And we haven’t experienced that from passengers.”

Disgusting. Simply disgusting. I am embarrassed for people so meek, brain-dead, and lacking even a basic sense of human dignity that they accept this abuse. The TSA “security theatre” crossed the line from inconvenient to unacceptable a few years ago, when they started demanding that people take off their shoes. This… offense… is so far over the line that anyone who chooses to go along with it for any but the most compelling reasons (work, family illness, etc.) doesn’t even deserve to be called “human” anymore. And the people who impose this nightmare on The Land Of The Free? I won’t call them what they deserve to be called: minors sometimes read this blog.
