Flying is not a right so if people don't like security measures they can just not fly. They have so many other ways they are taking away our freedoms I don't really count this as a way to turn us into zombies.
Will this make us any safer on airlines? Probably not but maybe. I'm all for the scanners that you walk passed and they can see through your clothing. I wouldn't mind shocking some of the security anyway
Washington (CNN) -- One hundred and fifty new full-body scanning machines are set to be placed in airports across the United States as federal authorities work to close security loopholes exposed by the attempted Christmas Day bombing of a U.S.-bound airliner.
LOL, just love the options we have to move from point A to B now. If you want to travel off the continent, only way you're doing that is to be VIOLATED people, pure, plain and simple. Next up, CAVITY CHECKS, for those deemed "suspicious"...And I'm sure there will be folks deeming that as perfectly okay too! "Big brother is keeping us all safe from Al CIAda!"

Can't go paranoid , but just can't go calling people nut-jobs either , unless the theory can be completely ruled out.
Being open minded is simply being open to the many possible scenarios that can come to pass, speculating with what you have at hand. Simply discarding those because they seem too far fetched is just as bad as the "believer" that will not change his mind even if hard evidence is shown to him disproving what he used to think was his/her truth.

why do I feel as though he's making everyone in America the bad guy but not the terrorist? We nearly lost a commercial airliner on Christmas and all Dr. Paul can harp about is some whack-job conspiracy theory?
