Report: Body scanner makers doubled lobbying cash over 5 years


www.rawstory.com

Multimillion dollar government contracts don't just happen. Ask the companies with the big government contracts to supply Body-scanning machines to U.S. airports how much more they had to spend on lobbying on the Hill. Not only have they increased their lobbying efforts over the last 5 years, they're doing it with some very familiar names.

USA Today reports that the companies with the biggest government contracts for body-scanners doubled their lobbying cash over the last five years, and adva

The more we are finding out about these body scanners and the methods that are being used to push them on the people, the more obvious the corruption gets. Yesterday, I created a thread on the CEO of a company which makes the body scanners, traveling in Obama's entourage to India.

Now, we find out that the lobbying efforts have doubled over the last five years. If it isn't clear that this was an economic descision over one of safety, than I don't know what is.

We are clearly having these violating scanners pushed on us for the personal gain of the elite, not because they make us any safer. What's worse, is that these scanners could be very bad for us healthwise, never mind liberty-wise.

There should certainly be an investigation into how the government colluded with industry to push these body scanners on us. I think it would expose a lot more than lobbying the government and it might even expose how the Christmas underwear was a hoax.

Once through these scanners is not going to kill us. But what happens when they put them at every Airport, Bus Terminal, Court House, etc....

We have got to stand up and say enough is enough.

Better to do it now while we can do it non-violently and legally.

Thanks for bringing on the real agenda behind the so call pad down intrusion and body scanners. the agenda is the same, getting people outraged enough to accept been radiated to death by body scans.

Pilots got the real deal, they complain about the radiation exposure no the safety.

But the rest of Americans are so manipulated by media that they are forgetting the money trail behind this scanners while been outraged on the "sexual molestation".

The money trail starts with former Homeland of deception secretary deep links to scanners companies. Look how this scanners has been pushed into the population in the name of security, Michael Chertoff used his political influence to push scanners in airports, that doesn't end there is not far ahead the retina scans coming our way if you don't like the body scans in airports.

Is not only government taking our freedoms, but look at how private companies are the ones that are working behind the government to keep oppressing the population.

Most of the spying been run in this nation are from private office buildings in almost every state.
