National Naked Scanner Opt-Out Day is Wednesday, Nov 24, 2010

I know this is not finance/economy related, but as someone who is going to be flying in December I hope this day of protest forces TSA to stop their naked-body scanners. If you opt-out of these illegal body scanners, you get a fully body pat down like a common criminal. The pat down involves TSA officials groping your entire body (including children) with their hands. This police state tactic must stop and the only way we can do achieve this is by showing the Feds we are not going to take it anymore.

National Naked Scanner Opt-Out Day is Wednesday, Nov 24, 2010

Save the date, mark the calendar and spread the word.

November 24th is the day ordinary citizens stand up for their rights, stand up for liberty, and protest the federal government's desire to virtually strip us naked or submit to an "enhanced pat down" that touches people's breasts and genitals. You should never have to explain to your children, "Remember that no stranger can touch or see your private area, unless it's a government employee, then it's OK."

The goal of National Opt Out Day is to send a message to our lawmakers that we demand change. No naked body scanners, no government-approved groping. We have a right to privacy and buying a plane ticket should not mean that we're guilty until proven innocent. This day is needed because many people do not understand what they consent to when choosing to fly.
