I have not yet had the fortune of being molested or manhandled by TSA at airports this year despite my many business trips and rather than continue to take chances at molestation roulette, my family and I have decided not to do any air travel this winter.   Normally we’d go skiing in Utah during Thanksgiving and somewhere warm (Hawaii) in December or elsewhere but that’s not happening.  Hotels won’t make money, ski resorts won’t make money, car rental places won’t make money nor will restaurants.    All part of the economic ecosystem that will continue to collapse because some idiot in Washington decided it was time to molest Americans at airports.

And why the hell are pilots being given a free pass? I know what you’re thinking, “hey the pilot is flying the plane so he can crash it, he doesn’t need to blow it up.” Well that’s where you are WRONG because a pilot could sneak explosives in his crotch, go to the airport bathroom, take it off and HAND IT TO A TERRORIST that has already passed screening. The assumption that the pilot is willing to die is WRONG as he may just be a pilot wanting to make a few extra bucks. Perhaps the pilot makes additional bonus money by purchasing puts on the airline stock that’s about to get blown up and he knows first hand when it will happen. Hell, terrorists now just need to find a pilot to bribe, blackmail or otherwise cajole into doing their bidding and presto plane goes boom!

Before any idiots post comments about “keeping planes safe” please keep your bullshit nonsense to yourself.   The next logical evolution for terrorist is to pack explosives in body cavities so what will TSA do next?  Require gynecological and rectal exams before boarding an airplane?   If the U.S. government has been unable to keep 200 tons of cocaine from crossing the board every year much less hundreds of thousands of illegals, it doesn’t stand a damn chance of catching a well organized and determined terrorist.

I have no doubt that no matter what the TSA does, a bomb will eventually go off somewhere and people will die.  Ironically, 50,000 people get killed in drunk driving incidents each year – where’s the outrage?   According to the CDC, the leading causes of death are as follows:

  • Heart disease: 616,067
  • Cancer: 562,875
  • Stroke (cerebrovascular diseases): 135,952
  • Chronic lower respiratory diseases: 127,924
  • Accidents (unintentional injuries): 123,706
  • Alzheimer’s disease: 74,632
  • Diabetes: 71,382
  • Influenza and Pneumonia: 52,717
  • Nephritis, nephrotic syndrome, and nephrosis: 46,448
  • Septicemia: 34,828

Wow, I don’t see terrorist attacks anywhere on the list, perhaps instead of TSA thugs we should hire medical doctors to do screenings at airports because that may actually save some lives.   It seems cancer and heart disease kill over 1 million people each year and that’s like having a city like Salt Lake City, Utah disappear every year but I don’t see anyone interested in solving that problem; I thought it was all about saving lives?

Oh well, if this keeps up, I will take the train or boat on my next vacation or I will just opt to drive even if it means losing a day or two commuting back and forth.  I simply will not tolerate my family being molested by government employees but the hopeless sheep don’t seem to have too many problems with it.  Never forget, most Germans didn’t have any problem with making Jews put star of David symbols on their clothes the first year around and we all know where that led.

As usual, there are a few people that stand up for logic, reason and freedom…
