President Barack Obama, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, and Transportation Security Administration head John Pistole think the outcry and anger over their "security measures" will soon fade. They think the air travelers will soon accept the procedures they have imposed. I think they're wrong.
Things have gotten people upset before, but they haven't responded in ways like this. Here is one thing that happened at the Albuquerque airport.
Those are military veterans the man on the left was in the Marine Corps, the woman was in the Army. Their service, and others', was to protect our rights. And they are rightly angered and frustrated to have our own government treating them and all of us as if we were the terrorists. The Air Force, too also at Albuquerque.
This isn't going away. It's going to get worse for the bureaucrats that are doing this to us.
UPDATE: More evident TSA stupidity. And, of course, we have to read about it in an English newspaper, because our own main-stream media insist on
living in the Administration's pocket doing this Administration's bidding.
From that story, too, as well as from others like this, we learn that TSA is so completely uncaring about the safety of the flying public that they don't even bother to change gloves between gropings. They're perfectly happy to contaminate subsequent gropees with whatever they picked up from prior ones animal, vegetable, or mineral. That kind of disregard for public health and safety would subject normal people to large fines and prison terms. It should do no less for these people and their bosses.
