50. Do you really think it is just about 'having their junk' touched?
I have asked this question several times over the past few days but still have not received an answer from those suddenly supporting these machines.

I'll try again. When these machines were first learned about back in 2004 and Liberals everywhere, not just in this country either btw, immediately opposed them and civil suits were brought against the government to stop their use, were you a part of that battle to stop the government from using fear to destroy our Constitutional rights? Did you support the successful efforts of the ACLU, the Civil Liberties Union and all the other 'leftwing' organizations who fought to halt these abuses of our rights?

Did you know eg, that those efforts were successful, even under Bush and with people like Giuliani and Chertoff trying desperately to scare people into accepting them? Until last year when sadly, it was not Bush, but a democratic administration who finally caved and bought these grotesque machines for our airports and dealt a real blow to all those efforts made while Bush was taking away right after right?

The reason I'm asking is I am truly shocked to see Democrats now supporting what they so opposed under Bush as I never once saw any support on any democratic forum, for these machines until now. And I would like to know what has changed. Are our civil rights no longer important, and if not, why not?
