    Obama got around a million from Goldman Saks for his campain. Polici and Reed got tens of thousands from them. None of them are giving any of it back. Isn't this bill sort of like biting the hand that feeds the greedy politican. No...this is do as I say not do as I do.

    My comment, by no means do I believe there should be full body scans technology should be used at airports. Its more of a comment just incase the DHS approve its use.

    You should be able to look at the operator of the full body scanner for airport security. You should be able to delete the screen so no image is left on the device.

    There are not enough good teachers, but there are far too many administrators and executives that get paid way too much for doing essentially nothing. When I was in HS, we had THREE admins for 800 students. The ratio now is triple that. Schools and districts are getting far too top-heavy and THAT is the REAL problem. Why don't you look into that.
