And I am sharing new articles now on my FB along with publicly saying how ashamed I am of serving in the military because of the shit we are doing to ourselves. I expect fallout in the next few days. I already had a school friend tell me that there is nothing wrong with searching small children, and this guy is a father. At least my father, the fucking borderline psychotic bipolar guy who hasn't been in my life because of that, agree with me.
When people support these types of scans, I always want to ask them where the line is. At what point does the level of invasion become unacceptable? Do they think there is
a line and we just haven't gotten there yet? Or do they just go along with the idea that we all have to make sacrifices to prevent terrorism and if that means some federal leather sniffers have to interrogate and grope a crying child, so be it?
if they hadn't been turning up the heat a little bit every year since 2001 we'd all be rioting right now. Remember when everybody was pissed off because they were taking nail clippers away from 80 year old women? Or when we were pissed that we can't bring water bottles onto the planes? Those were legit grievances, and now we've adjusted to that level of insanity, and we're letting them shave off another bit of dignity.
