The growing Draconian state: TSA Plans to Implement Molecular Body Scanners

It looks like big government is loving all the new forms of technology being developed for them to spy on and search in individual and their homes, cars, and analyze their behavior. For our own safety of course.

Remember when Michael Chertoff’s backscatter x-ray scanners were all the rage (literally)? And the nigh anticipated arrival of the F.A.S.T. (Future Attribute Sensing Technology – whatever that means) machines that would label you as a terrorist by reading your skin temperature and body language? Well get ready for the latest piece of draconian technology from the Department of Homeland Surveillance that will be able to tell everything about you right down to the molecular level. From the dandruff on your shoulder to the particles under your fingernails to the contents of your stomach. All from over 50 meters away!

This modern miracle of fascist technology is brought to you by the friendly folks over at In-Q-Tel. Yes, the same In-Q-Tel that’s been providing surveillance and information gathering gadgets for the CIA for over 13 years!


They have only been able to use technology so far to see what was on you, but with this they can interpret the data to tell them about your actions and behavior.

“Within the next year or two, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security will instantly know everything about your body, clothes, and luggage with a new laser-based molecular scanner fired from 164 feet (50 meters) away.

From traces of drugs or gun powder on your clothes to what you had for breakfast to the adrenaline level in your body—agents will be able to get any information they want without even touching you,”

Sure, I can accept that they would be most concerned about explosives, but the fact that they can detect and use the information to learn more about you, and all this without a warrant... it is just laughable that people think they are free.

They have devices now that can search our bodies inside and out. They can track and control our vehicles. They can monitor our whereabouts by tracking our phones. They can determine our interests by our shopping habits and internet queries. They can listen and see through walls with devices or by using internal home wi-fi's against the owners. They can deem someone a terrorist or potential terrorist because of the political beliefs, reading material, bumper stickers, shopping habits OR because they agree with the Constitution. Then they can detain and imprison such people indefinitely without trial. Or if you beat them to the punch and protest such action, they take out one of their many new "less-than-lethal" toys and microwave you, blind you, blow your ears out, electrocute you or simply gas you.

Yep. Free as a bird. A cage bird who's on the menu.

Oh, they are working on it. (Mind-Reading Tech Reconstructs Videos From Brain Images)

And I am sure as soon as they do, they will have people on trial hooked up to it and say it isn't a violation of the 5th Amendment because the person isn't testifying against himself.

Just how far are people willing to let this stupid Orwell-wanna be nonsense go anyway? This is patently absurd. How many attempts at Hijacking or destruction of aircraft have legitimately been tried in 20 years? I get the idea that one successful attempt is a catastrophe but that can be said about many things and it doesn't take an evil scientist to war game out a few off the top of the head.

So what the heck? I mean "Con-Air" of the US Marshall service can safely transport a whole plane load of the most dangerous people our species can produce. Never a single serious incident. Not one. All we'd need to do for 100% and total security is submit to shackles and seat restriction. Easy right?

...and why the heck not? We're already willing to let them humiliate and molest the Elderly, manhandle the healthy and get downright creepy with our kids. Aren't we willing to give anything for security? It seems less than this molecular scanner to be sure.

(and if anyone missed the sarcasm....I think we're about a DOZEN steps beyond what was reasonable and rational for Airline security.)
