I would love it if our government spent a fraction of what it is spending on bailouts to come up with a technology that allows us to go through airport security without having to take our shoes off. We spend trillions on bailing out the horrible but nothing on something that is so obviously absurd for this day and age. I mean what would it cost? Probably wouldn't be more than all the Goldman Sachs bonuses the taxpayers gave out this year.
Just their friendly reminder that we work for the state, not the other way around.
