My Family is Not Suicidal
Taking a fellow worker to the airport yesterday, I asked if she had any security stories.
This lady is a non-practicing Muslim from Bangladesh. Her husband is from India and they have two small kids born here in the states. All are English first speaking.
Their trip from Texas to New York City went well but getting on the plane to India to visit family had a slight problem
Their son, 8, was wearing a pair of those tennis shoes that have the light up heels with every step you take. After taking them off, being scanned and x-rayed, he still was not allowed to board the plane with the dangerous footwear and made the entire trip without shoes. Needless to say the first thing they had to do upon arriving in India was to buy shoes. Never did get the other pair back.
We have an out of control homeland security mandated by a criminal government that terrorizes its own citizens and those all over the world through wars, support of wars and even false flag attacks.
But an 8 year old kid and his American family are singled out as potential 'terrorists'.
The problem is that a large number of people in this country still think this kind of security idiocy is appropriate.
Just another small example of the insanity of our government and those who work for them.
