Somehow the idea of showing the Mayor in the Scanner as a way of pacifying the population is kind of humorous. The man is clearly delusional - talking about the importance of security while at the same time favoring open borders? So according to Tony, the way we keep safe is by screening ourselves but not securing our borders?? The man is an enigma inside a riddle inside a big wad of spit.

you need to grow up. to even suggest that no screening is done is childish. the brief lok at a image with no detail a prev has nothing to see. there is no detail were you can see a wart. it sees forgein ojects.

He just did it to make himself and LAX look good. Who wants to say these machines are a 24 million dollar failure.

Since these scanners can see through clothes, would that mean that viewing a minor going through would be considered child pornography? I am fully in opposition to these scanners. What was it that prompted them to be used, anyway?

There's a point where things become to protected, and we have reached that point. As Benjamin Franklin said, "They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety."

just because a moron jumps off a cliff doesn't mean it is safe for others to do so.
The scanners alter one's DNA and that is why they are being used. Of course, greed is also involved.
The biggest terrorist threats to Americans is our government. Starting at the lowest level, cops, CHP, Sheriffs, etc. all the way to the spooks at the CIA and their ilk.
Governments always need to make up boogey men to clamp down on freedoms.
There is no such thing as Al-Qeada and Osama Bin Laden is dead, has been for years.
With the moronic TSA agents, anything can and has gotten past them from factual stories where the credibility of the author can't be refuted.
So, for those who think these scanners are no big deal, line up willingly and fly.

Tiny Tony assumes the position like a pro! Of course, considering is shady past, this is not surprising.

Yup. Tony's past catching up with him in this picture. And I'll bet he thought nobody would notice.

Well, if our fearless leaders want all of us to be subjected to these scanners, then it's only appropriate that they lead the way by going through it themselves. Not a big Tony Villaragos fan, but at least he's not a hypocrite (this time, anyway) by asking the rest of us to do something he wouldn't do himself. Now, if we could just get Obama and Pistole to go through the scanners and get a full pat down...
