This administration doesn't know what it has and doesn't have. The
President said the other day that he may now govern for awhile, but he is still
on the campaign trail. They need to get off the merry-go round and see what the
real world is and not just to talk down to people that live in the best country
in the world. We have been blessed for 300 years of establishing a country
where people could come with the help of God to live and learn not sort of live
and be held in captivity. The Civil War became a time when captivity was ending
for people here. We have a new captivity today with loss of other types of
freedoms or potential loss of freedoms but in action to practice those freedoms.
People have become complacent that our government can take care of
all our woes from birth until death and that we don't have to worry about
what they will and can do for us. They will take the control of our freedoms
and we will be along for the ride.People in real life becomes
victims to their actions or lack of actions.
Weren't they going to get rid of the body scanners, also? Hasn't
happened yet...as of last week.
The bad guys will figure out a way to get around the small knife issue to build
one that can connect several knives to make a big knife. The box cutter kind
were not big knives but were a significant threat when designing men and women
work on this project.What is the intent of a knife or any weapon?
To put fear into people. Perception is part of the fear tactics. We are
surrounded by violence in real life and in the various forms of media. Bullying
still happens in schools and in the workplace.
I like peanut butter and apple as a snack when I travel. Once the TSA
confiscated my near empty jar of peanut butter to keep my fellow passengers
safe. Maybe now if I keep a knife in the jar, they would let me keep my peanut
butter. another time they searched my luggage for over 30 minutes because they
"saw something", eventually letting me board my flight because they
couldn't "find something". Once on board, I thoroughly inspected my
carry-on, that I had used for years and found a tiny safety pin, maybe 0.5 inch
long. I asked the flight attendant if she felt threatened by my safety pin. She
laughed. Thanks TSA for keeping passengers safe by drawing lines in the sand.
Sounds like we can now have a good old-fashioned brawl now on an airplane! Just
add some alcohol! Oh, wait, we have that too!
