Just Silly

Controversial nude body scanners used at U.S. airports have come under fire again – after a blogger claimed he could easily smuggle explosives through them onto a plane.

Engineer Jonathan Corbett has published a video where he shows how he took a small metal case through two of the TSA’s $1 billion fleet in a special side pocket stitched into his shirt.

This is because, he suggests, the scanners blend metallic areas into the dark background – so if an object is not directly placed on the body, it will not show up on the scan.

The metallic box, he claims, would have set off an alarm had he passed through the old detecting system.

His revelation comes just weeks after Europe banned the ‘airport strip-searches’ over fears the X-ray technology could cause cancer.

So next time you’re at the Airport, you’ll have the confidence to know that the TSA has your back…. 🙂

POLITICALLY CORRECT THOUGHT POLICE UPDATE

2 years ago there was a firestorm about wearing a US flag shirt on Cinco De Mayo (hint: it’s “racist”) so now we have a new “racially insensitive” chant:

“USA! USA! USA!”

Yes, I said “USA!” is a racist chant when the other team is predominately Hispanic and you’re not and you win. OMG!!!!! The HORROR!!

SAN ANTONIO – A local school district is apologizing after an apparent incident of racism at a boys high school basketball game this past weekend.

When the final whistle blew Saturday, Alamo Heights celebrated a convincing victory over San Antonio Edison.

Alamo Heights Head Coach Andrew Brewer said he was proud of his team.

“Tremendously proud,” Brewer said. “Tremendously. It’s the best group of kids.”

But it was just after the trophy presentation when the coach was not proud of the chant coming from Alamo Heights fans.

“USA, USA, USA,” they chanted.

San Antonio Independent School District officials took the chant as a racial insult to a school with all minority players from a school with mostly white ones.

Statement by School:

If this chant was commonplace – chanted at their games with other schools — it would not be a problem.  It was targeted at a school that is predominantly Hispanic.  We appreciate that the Alamo Heights High School basketball coach reacted very quickly to stop the students from chanting.  
Unfortunately, this is not the first time we have had this experience.  A similar incident occurred last year with one of our schools and another school district where they chanted “USA USA” and “Arizona Arizona,” around the time that there was heated discussion about the immigration law in that state.  
Edison’s team is predominantly Hispanic, said Leslie Price, a spokesperson for the San Antonio ISD.
 
“The implication as they are not American citizens,” Price told Fox News. “We understand competitiveness and rivalry, but you need to choose your words and think about the meaning behind them.”
 
Price said she believes the “USA, USA” chant was racially motivated.
 
“It was chanted selectively at a school that is predominantly Hispanic and there was understanding of that,” she said.
 
Price said the school district was bombarded with a number of people who found the “USA, USA” chant to be “very disrespectful.”
 
“That might be chanted at international soccer games,” she said. “But this is not a chant that these students chant at all of their basketball games. It was selective.”
So in honor of the Thought Police in San Antonio…

USA! USA! USA!

<<<knocking>>

Oooh!, I think that’s them at the door… 🙂
