Do not fly until Big Government gets rid of scanners and becomes less intrusive at airports
Since 9/11, we've flown only once or twice a year, if that, because I don't like to go through security at airports. Big government is too intrusive. Politicians are spending billions scanning everyone and everything and making little kids and old folks go through ridiculous security checks. From George W. Bush to Barack Obama and the Congresses that have enabled them, the politicians have imposed airport security checking systems to protect themselves from public criticism if a plane is blown up, not just to protect the traveling public. To be politically correct, politicians force everyone to go through security. It is time to use racial, ethinic and other available techniques that screen people who are real threats, not everyone. We shouldn't be giving terrorists such a huge victory by letting them cripple our economy and take away our rights to privacy and to move around the country and world freely. No trip is so important that you have to get some place overnight. It is time for all travelers to drive or stay home until the politicians come to their senses.
