It will never fly (no pun intended). Demographics and socio-economics will dictate that specific groups will be far more likely to be stuck in the slow lane, hence it will be deemed discriminatory. The background checks will cost you money to obtain, which will also be considered discriminatory. 6 months in and the ACLU will file suit.
They will also not fit in small airports, simply changing the routes folks take who wish to cause harm.
If the government is pushing it, there must be some juice on the back end for someone. GE's selling the gear or some other criminal out of the DHS/military industrial complex involved in the firm that will likely get the no-bid contract for production, implementation and maintenance of these devices. Perhaps Michael Chertoff has topped out on the dough his shop made on the full body scanners and needs a new revenue stream.

Crakeur: lmao at the yellow lane comment. I do hope you are wrong about the nudity though: I live in Florida and no number of 20'something cuties in sling bikinis can make up for one 80 year old guy in a speedo - so can you imagine ALL of it "hanging out" ?

Mom is right! Skip all the intrusive TSA stuff and scanners if you have the proper credentials and "Mark." Avoid all the lengthy banking applications and restrictions and fees if you have the proper credentials and the "Mark." Skip all the Healthcare fiasco if you have the proper credentials and the "Mark." Get VIP treatment at the grocery store if you have been preapproved, signed up, and have the proper "Mark." I could go on and on. All the pieces are there!
Having the Mark = Easy living! Banking, job hunts, VIP at the store, everything automated, everything just happens around you with little or no input. No security lines, no patdowns, no banking fees, no checkout lines, no paperwork with your insurance company, no filling out a job application or mortgage application, no renewing licenses, everything automated and quick and error-free!
Not having the Mark = strip searches, detainment, life as a second-class citizen! Bartering for basic necessities, avoiding any public buildings, avoiding all authorities, difficult travel, violent encounters, etc., etc.!
We are there! The TSA moves are the last domino to fall into place. Sit back and watch all the political fallout and the “Solution” that comes about!
One Solution solves all the current hot issues. The Mark, and the Software associated with it, can fix the banking industry, the credit industry, the currency fluctuations, the security risks, the Immigration problems, Healthcare Issues, Identity Theft, and just about everything else that the press is harping on at this moment in history! All we have to do is give up our privacy and our individuality and everything gets better, or we can stand on our principles, outdated voodoo, and mentally disturbed conspiracy theories and make things harder on ourselves and our children.
