    So.... what exactly does L-3's lobbying (and the examples specifically called out) have to do with full body scanners? They're a minor part of L-3's business, at most.

    bleh. new slogans for the TSA(taken from another forum i visit):

    Can't see London can't see France unless we see your underpants.

    Grope discounts available.

    If we did our job any better we'd have to buy you dinner first.

    Only we know if Lady Gaga is really a lady.

    Don't worry, my hands are still warm from the last guy.

    Wanna fly? Drop your fly.

    We are now free to move about your pants.

    We rub you the wrong way, so you can be on your way.

    It's not a grope it's a freedom pat.

    You were a virgin.

    We handle more packages than the UPS.

    ahhhhhh can you FEEL the FREEEDOM

    but I bet you FEEL more safe right.

    I will send some ideas to the TSA and Homeland security such as,
    I think you are doing a great job. You really make me feel safer to fly. I want to thank you for your hard work. Will you please consider making it mandatory for everyone flying to wear a spandex t-shirt and spandex shorts along with crocs. I think this will make your jobs much easier to catch those bad terrorist people and will also make me fly more because I would feel safer.

    Think my idea would fly:D

    * I will open spandex stores within each airport.

    Then after that implementation I will say great job again.... but can you mandate that everyone wear a clear/opaque poncho only to better help you find the bad items.

    * Then I will change my spandex store over to selling opaque ponchos

    Do you not see how you are becoming prisoners of your own country? Each year a NEW LAW is passed to keep you safe but each year you LOSE MORE FREEDOM...hmmm

    One of the best, most pointed things I have read on these boards.
