    Just how safe are these scanners? I do not think a lot of safety tests have been done on these machines with them being rushed into service for the sake of "security". Do the "millivave" scanners not give off radio waves like the microwave oven? and just how much radiation is the "scater" giving off?

    I resolve to try and NOT be so embarrassed about living in the United States. I used to be proud of our country but the mishandling of government is shameful to me. I will let that go this year as there is nothing we can do about it. 🙂

    I resolve to get a new financial fund product created. I call it a multi-generational fund. The idea is simple. Extend my investments for my family and charities beyond my life and the lives of my children and my children's children. Initial investment will be $1000 and will have maturity dates of 200 years, 225 years, 250 years, 275 years, 300 years, 325 years, and 350 years. The funds will be made available to my heirs when they reach 40 years of age or beyond at the maturity dates. We have the technology to do this now and I have the will.

    My new years resolution is finishing up my dissertation. I have several good excuses not to finish it but really, the main reason is "I am too lazy to finish it!". I hope I can fix my laziness this year confessing it though the CNN news!

    I resolve to think that we will never win this so called war on terror. There are many young Muslims taught at a very young age to do jihad and become a martyr. We should go after the Imams and Mullahs that teach this kind of hatred or this war will go on for generations! If there are any peaceful and God fearing Muslims they aught to both speak out against jihad and martyrdom as is being taught to their young and reword the Koran that jihadism is a way of self control and not world control and that martyrdom is when one gives his life to save another not kill people who they hate!

    This year is my year of contribution. I expect to impact the world with positives views. I'll write books, direct movies (if you know financers tell me), and maybe write more.

    I am a Nigerian and we're not terrorists. It unnigerian. We will share that message and I know the world will be watching out for them. I invite CNN to help with fair coverage of Nigerian.

    Common, you guys claimed initially that maybe he didn't receive any checking in Nigeria. Common? Our major problem might be our leaders but Nigeria is definitely not a jungle? Common. Do not taint everybody. We face lots of difficulties while flying. True nigerian spirit wants to live right and we love life. A Nigerian does not want to die.

    There are Americans and Britains who have commited terrorists acts. That doesn't make you guys terrorists. Common! take it easy on us. We are very loving. voted once the happiest people in the world.

    This is my resolution promote the truth and love in the world and around me.

    Good Bless Nigeria, God bless the United States, God Bless Dominican Republic, Jamaica, and Brasil. God bless the world!

    Bringing to light the corruption that exists in all levels of government. this is the root of most of the problems we face today one way or another. Preaching to all who will listen that they need to learn to live with less. That this country is not socalist and that people who have less are not owed by people with more! This is by far the most generous country in the world but enough is enough! Telling all who will listen that not everybody can go to college and be a doctor or a nurse that we have to bring back jobs that average Americans can do, or all the wealth will dry up and there will be nothing for anyone not to mention future generations!

    Hi:
    I just made my New Years Resolution. I will no longer offer my advice or opinions to anyone who asks. I just lost a friend who asked my for advice, and she didn't like what my suggestion was. All because I thought my opinion and advice might help.... Everyone will resolve their problems on their own sooner or later.

    New Years Resolutions are to live more efficiently, explore my spirituality, and make becoming healthy, not weight lose, my focus. I would also like to continue my straight A grades at SFSU and make "the list".... which is uncharted territory for me.

    My New Years Resolution is the same as every year – Be HAPPY!

    Re: the "twenty-ten" vs. "two thousand ten" – why not follow history? It was "nineteen-seventy" and "nineteen-ninety" not "one thousand nine hundred seventy".

    HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL!

  34. Suzie Geraldi

    My New Years Resolution: I have to get into a clinical trail that will cure the rare form of Breast Cancer that I have. I have to save my life, because I promised my husband when we married 4 years ago that I will grow old with him. My doctors are telling me they are not finding a trail that I fit the requirements for, even though the trail can save my life. I have to do everything that I can to get myself into a clinical trail in 2010.

    P.S.
    Is there anything you can do to help me keep my New Years Resolution? Please?

    This comment is made on behalf of all the math teachers in America.
    The year 2010 is said without the word "and." The correct way to say it is two thousand ten or twenty ten, but not two thousand and ten.
    Happy New Year!

    I am not usually one for making resolutions, however, I do have a new philosophy to govern my life for 2010 and onward. It is simply this: If success is COMPLETELY up to me, then I will be COMPLETELY successful in what ever I do! My life's new motto is to LIVE INTENSE!

    You mentioned the airport security recently and wanted to know what we think I don't think that what we think is important to anyone in our government but, anyway, here's my "two cents." I appears, based on what we have seen lately, that our security depends on "lay" people who do not work for the government. Witness the actions of the father of the recent bomber and those of passengers on the bomber's flight. Now we ALL will be required to do the government's work because they do not seem to handle some very elementary aspects of our security. If I am doing gov't work, I expect to be paid – perhaps I can charge $1 each time my baggage is checked or my body is scanned? Every time I allow that, I am really doing the gov't's job. If they really did a good job, my bags and body would not have to be scanned. It is an admission that they cannot seem to keep us safe and the scanning is for "show".

  57. David

    @rosemary tsa screeners are not simply lay people nor are the screeners, security personnel of any country, they are the citizens of that country, and they are employees trained and compensated just as CEOs and elected officials are qualified and compensated for their jobs.

    And though I do see your pt about having to go through the scanning or having baggage checked, and wanting to charge the govt $1, you overlook the fact that passengers routinely go through metal detectors and no one's complaining about that, or about having to pull their keys out of their pockets. I do realize the body scans are sort of a "virtual strip search" and I feel they're invasive, but to regard every bit of screening as doing the govt's work is oversimplifying. And the screening process is not only for "show." It's true there is a deterrent aspect to having the equipment out where it can be clearly seen, but how much security would we have without the screenings? In any case the tsa employees who do the screening are I believe completely committed to their job and they are in fact govt employees working for the Transportation Safety Administration.

    thanks for your two cents.

    my new years resolution is; Have Obama let our Military Industrial Complex Know he's in charge and clearly state to our joint cheifs that their needs to be a major realignment and understanding that The President is and has Always been Cheif and Commander in which all factions of our military answers to him. Lastly, It's not just me but globally humanity is waiting for the truth of truths about a lot of topics. For starters; the origin of life for humanity. When we are the only species that cannot be linked back to something it's obvious we had intervention through intelligent design. Humanity knows that evan we ourselves can now create life so why is this such a difficult declassification so humanity finally has the truth of truths! We can handle this and the majority already knows it; "WE ARE JUST WAITING TO HERE IT FORM OUR LEADERS SO WE CAN REGAIN FAITH IN THE VOICES OF OUR POLITICIANS" NOT TO HEAR THE TRUTH SPOKEN HONESTLY WOULD BE INSULTING OUR INTELLIGENCE. Last for my new years resolution congress needs to put rules and regulation on the banks. Everybody at least has to answer to some one except them. Fix it Please

    Heidi, Happy New Year my dear... I think the TSA is making a terrible mistake by picking some countries to search and some not to....What about all these Muslim radicals that are British, French, Germany Citizens...they don't need Visa to get in here anyway? Profiling will never work....Searching should be all citizens regardless of their religious beliefs or where they are flying in or out.
    US Intelligence made a stupid mistake now they wanna blame the rest of poor countries perhas Muslim nations for their shortcomings. Nobody is even talking about how courageous it take to report your own son to authorities as Nigerian terroist father did...now here we are craving for the same profiling that never work. Shame....
