    It’s really a shame we paid for these through our tax dollars. Lets see, don’t go through the scanner & you’ll be forced to a enhanced pat down pat down, how many will chose the scanner? The more who do, the more they will have to buy, to of course make it easier for us common folk to travel and our tax dollars are buying them!! its only for our own safety, we cant offend anyone by looking back at the past 100 terrorist attacks & seeing any commonalities. It’s not profiling, it’s common sense!!
