I am not looking forward to the next time I have to fly. It’s not the terrorism that worries me, its what the whole process is going to be like. I expect to see the return of the sky marshalls, long and intrusive check in procedures, and maybe even mp5 toting security guards at airports. I also expect to see more of that face matching software and cameras like they have in Tampa. Ask yourself how you will feel knowing that every time you go into an airport someone is taking your picture and comparing it to a list of terrorists. God help the poor guy that happens to resemble one of these people.

I gave up flying about 5 years ago. I decided I wasn’t going to be treated like a criminal anymore. Yes, driving is a pain in the ass, but not as big a pain as being treated like a criminal when I haven’t done anything wrong and have no intention of doing anything wrong.

The airlines can go fuck themselves, and the federally-controlled airports too.

I don’t have a problem with flight itself. I had no problems with turbulence in a two-engine 10-seat prop plane on my way to Basic at Ft. Benning. It’s all of the soon-to-be-escalating bullshit involved with getting on the plane that pisses me off. Then you worry about some boob on the luggage crew stealing your guns . . . .

So when AirGanga is up and running, I’ll save up and fly with Vin. When the time comes, I’ll fly first-class instead of being stuffed in like a package into a cargo compartment.

Subject: [NewMexicoDemocrat] GWB in Shreveport Louisiana

While millions of Americans die,
Chaney is busy in the White House,
the Joint Chiefs are coordinating efforts,
the military is gearing up to retaliate…

and GWB is hiding in Shreveport Louisiana at Barksdale AFB.

Cute little attempt at poetry, asshole. But you didn’t get the facts straight.

There weren’t “millions of Americans” killed and wounded. Thousands, yes, but not millions.

As far as retaliation goes, how much of a problem did you have when Waco Willie blew up a Sudanese aspirin factory after getting caught with his pants down? It’s only NOW that you change your tune. So much for the Democrats being the party of peace . . . .

GWB, to his credit, did move on to the White House. I’ve got just as much reason to be against him as you do — he said he’s going to re-authorize the “assault weapon” ban, the Brady BS and all that other garbage that your bunch in the White House signed into law over eight years.

And while I have no special love for the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms — I often refer to them as F-Troop for the way they kick in people’s doors over shotgun barrels under 18″ in length, worn AR-15 sears, having too many fender washers (“suppressor baffles, don’t you know?”), among other things, they at least were pulling people out of the rubble and attempting to provide comfort for the wounded. What did you do besides whine about GWB?
