Body Scanner

Today on "Morning Joe" Pat Buchanan stated that the full body scanners would indeed pick up items either swallowed or put inside of a body cavity, and cited that this would have detected the incident with the Saudi security officer having explosives inside his body.

I thought I remember Thomm talking about this some time ago that indeed these full body scanners would not pick up items inside of a body cavity.

Can anyone else confirm this.

A Capital Idea Part 42: Our Problems are Rooted in Masculinity

More Unequal Protection-Revised

More inequitable treatment from the United States Postal Service. Huge "retention incentive" for executive VP. Loss of job protections and benefits, wage freezes, and reduced time standards to determine pay for job functions for workers.

Contrast this, 11/152010:

Time to Think Outside the Box

Running for President:
Nancy Pelosi
Vice President Elect:
Dennis Kucinich
Majority Speaker:
Alan Grayson

Not change – but guaranteed change!

And in the meantime, AFTER the lame-duck session: PROSECUTE - PROSECUTE - PROSECUTE … and every so often filibuster.

Austerity Measures and GOP Death Panels

We all believe in austerity when it comes to spending, yes? Of course we do but please... the people on the margins those on the edge...really? The social net is broken and the poor continue to slip through. Budget cuts in Arizona's legislature resulted in a man leaving a hospital Tuesday after the state Medicaid agency refused to pay for a life-saving liver transplant. His name is Francisco Felix who suffers from Hepatitis C and who was denied a liver transplant. The legislature reversed its approval for about 98 low income patients. It was signed into law by the governor.

Tax 'em

In 2007, the top 1 percent of U.S. income earners made 23.5 percent of all income — more than the bottom 50 percent combined. The share of income going to the top 1 percent has nearly tripled since the mid-1970s. Eighty percent of all new income earned from 1980 to 2005 has gone to the top 1 percent.

Taxing those folks isn't socialism, given article 1 section 8, it's the essence of American Democracy.

Climate Scientists are Panicking - 1 Degree Makes a Big Difference

Thom plus logo Climate change is a real emergency, not a fake one like Trump's wall. The planet has already warmed one degree, and two degrees could be a civilization-ending event. It's killing people all over the world and is getting far worse far faster than we'd thought possible.
