Scanner to be sent to larger airport to account for other scanner removals
Let’s be civil.
The Flathead Beacon encourages vigorous discussion and lively debate, but we will delete comments that attack other readers, make accusations we can’t verify, stray too far off topic, criticize local businesses (call them if you have a problem), accuse someone of a crime, use profanity or are simply judged to be in bad taste. We don’t always have someone moderating comments, so we ask for your help: If you see a comment that violates these ground rules, or you simply deem it offensive, please e-mail webmaster [at]

Thank you, corsair1945.

The removal of the scanner doesn’t have to mean longer waits.  The Montana legislature needs to
bar the enforcement of these ludicrous federal regulations in Montana.  That’s how the founders
intended for checks and balances between the states and the federal government to work.

May God richly bless you corsair.  And may He be with you as you navigate the labryinthine canyons
of despair as you seek to remove yourself from the no-fly list for that comment.

Let’s finish the job and get rid of the worthless TSA, as well as homeland insecurity.  Their
ranks include liars, thieves, and known pedophiles. People who give up liberty for a little bit of
comfort and security deserve neither!

Consider what it cost us to acquire hundreds of these machines and install them and now
to uninstall them so they can sit and collect dust someplace. 

Is it any wonder that our country’s finances are in the dumper???
