Is that the same company for whom Michael Cherthoff works? He, who, as secretary of the Department of Homeland (in)Security, was instrumental in the legislation and mandate of such devices and the award of contracts for same?

Nobody would go through those scanners if the alternative were not having a TSA agent sticking his hands down your pants. The only reason for the abusive pat-downs is to force people into the scanners, and the only reason for the scanners is so that “connected” insiders like George Soros can scam tax dollars.

Same for TWIC cards they wear (transportation workers identity card), it's just a cash stream for Dick Cheney's dog tag company.

Do you know the name of Dick Cheney's dog tag company? I would like to check that out as it is the first I have heard of it?

Surely you are not saying that Cheney owns Northrup Grumman. Even so, I checked all their websites and I cannot find anywhere any reference to any division making identification tags. I will need a little more help to verify what you said:

That's what it said on the paperwork when I got my TWIC dogtag.

They are #3 at the Pentagon hog trough.

Keep looking, you find lot's of interconnections.

They go to great lengths to confuse the average person looking for clues, but that's showbiz.

His formula is as old as time. He made a deal with Satan.

It said that Dick Cheney owned Grumman? My emotion is changing from confused to suspicious.

Yes, they do a lot of work for the DoD but Cheney and Grumman were in a prolonged and heated battle when Cheney was Sec. of Def. Grumman wanted to sell the Pentagon hundreds of new F-14s but Cheney said that the ones they already had could be refurbished and upgraded for half the price. It was quite a drawn out political battle.

I can't find anything that says Grumman makes ID tags nor that ties Cheney to Grumman. I think you may be mistaken.

Yes, Rapiscan was a client of Chertoff's company and Chertoff has lobbied hard for those scanners.

Thanks. I found the division of Lockeed who made your tag. I assume your are working with someone connected to ports or maritime operations. However, the only connection I can find to Cheney, is his wife Lynne was on the Lockheed Martin board for a few years until Dick became VP in 2001. She then resigned.

I think you must be mistaken about Dick Cheney “owning the dog tag company” that made your name tag.

I'm using the term as a metaphor for the corpo nazi big brother military industrial Congressional complex Ike warned us about.

They are all one and the same in that they all share chairs on different boards continuously.
