If you want to live in a place with freedom you naturally will have to give up some of your security
If you want to be more secure prepare to give up some of your
So which is it?? Which do you choose??
I choose freedom. But that is easy for me to say because I have never lost someone to a terrorist.
Maybe my opinion would be different if I had.
Do you see your freedom slowly slipping away?
I see it. I see it big time and it frustrates me.
Anybody heard about the body scanners at the airport???
If you haven't I will catch you up.
If you want to fly you have two options now :
1 - Go through a scanner. It produces an image that is inappropriate to be shown on TV.
UG. Me naked. I don't like that. Even if it is black and white. But you know what I hate even more??
2 - Get patted down. I don't mean like a quick little frisk. I mean like every part of your body touched with an open palm. Ug.
So I don't know about you but the thought of flying makes me want to throw up.
And it's not because of the reasons above.
I have little kids. And I have been trying to teach my son that if anyone touches him on his Pee Pee he should tell them to stop and start screaming for help.
I can just picture that scene in the airport.
And you won't catch me putting them in the scanner. Because as much as I'm Tolerant of someone seeing me naked. I'm not okay with it being done to my kid. Because we all know that as parents we have to protect our kids.
Other countries are being successful without using these scanners. Like dogs. That would be so easy to have trained dogs. I would rather have a dog well. You know give me a sniff anywhere he wanted to than have someone grab my boob.
Profiling is an option. Some may say that is wrong but I tell you this. Glen Beck was questioned for hours (I can't remember what country) before he could get on the plane because security came across somethings that made them just a bit suspicious.
After all was said and done they escorted him to his seat. And on the flight they served him dinner. Which included a knife for his meat. And you know what. Everything was A okay.
Go here if you want to learn more about something interesting.
There are options. So no. I don't have to sacrifice MAJOR freedoms for my SECURITY.
I just need a government that will get their noses out of every aspect of my life and let the professionals do their job. You know. The professionals who have a little bit of common sense.
I just wonder what the perk was for the person that put these scanners into full effect. There has to be a perk because common sense says go with the dog.
Oh and I feel bad for the worker who has to look at all the naked people or pat everyone down. I'm sure it's not what they signed up for.
Happy Flying ! :)
