No more air travel

I was on my last airline flight in 2000. How, with the full body scanners and enhanced pat downs, I am done. I Opt Out.

I will not fly out of any airport where the TSA has control of security, and I will not fly on any airline that co-operates with the TSA. If that means I drive, then I drive.

How did Mission Impossible or the old black and white movies make clear that some place had a police state? "Papers, please." Now, the Gamma men that run this once proud country think it's acceptable for us, free citizens, to turn our heads and cough every time some tin-pot tin-badged Arby's reject(*) wants a free feel.

There comes a time in a man's life where you say "This far, no farther". I will drive, or I might ride Amtrak if I have to, but I will not fly.
