My Daily Rant about Airport Insecurity

I like science fiction movies, when it was fantasy like Soylent Green a 1973 movie protrays a future where the earth is so overpopulated and polluted that we must eat soylent green wafers to live made from irrelevant people, or George Orwells classic 1984 written in 1948, an ominous warning that the state could dominate people and take away our freedom

Today on Good Morning America I witnessed a airport security machine "the backscatter" so powerful it shows the viewer the pimple on your ass. Is it me or is that just wrong? When are we going to stand up for ourselves and say; stuff it ass holes! I have rights. We should boycott airline travel until it hurts them. I'm sick of airport security they just keep feeding our fears. We're like unconscious cattle being herded through the gates and if someone says take off your pants we just bitch a little and comply, what ever they say or however they treat us we just go along with it. Where did our personal freedom go and when are we going to get some balls and stand up for ourselves? Those science fiction movies we enjoyed because secretly we said to ourselves "That could never happen to us" well look around people it's already happened. Please don't get me started.........Here is a funny post about a plane ride that didn't suck http://cabinfeverinalaska.blogspot.com/2006_05_01_archive.html

I agree every time I have flown recently it's been an ordeal.

I just read a Lee Iacocca exerpt from his new book...Where Have all the Leaders Gone?

"Name me a leader who has a better idea for homeland security than making us take off our shoes in airports and throw away our shampoo? We've spent billions of dollars building a huge new bureaucracy, and all we know how to do is react to things that have already happened."

Boy does he trash our leaders!

Nice sidewalk art! I have never done that!
