We Won’t Fly
I’m not into conspiracy theories but where is this going to stop? Transportation and travel are cultural and personal necessities. We use them to build closer ties with those far from us. Travel enhances people’s well-being. It builds our economy. It keeps the peace. So, just how far and wide are they going to roll out the scanning and groping circus show?
The day after Opt Out Day, Homeland Security secretary Janet Napolitano said she’s expanding security theater to buses, trains, ships, mass transit and who knows what else. Janet should know better than to try to grow their unpopular and dangerous security theater. A lot of people simply will not accept it. It is already hurting the economy. It will only strengthen our resistance.
