The Newest TSA Extortion Program-Call For A Boycott

Do you want to feel less suffering and pain while traveling with commercial air carriers? Do you want a small slice of that liberty so many of our soldiers fought and died for when you visit mom on the holidays? If you register as a traveler, give up your privacy, submit to fingerprinting and pay a $100.00 annual payment you can enjoy a tiny taste of freedom when you fly! It’s called The Registered Traveler Program

Call it what you will it’s nothing less than pure and simple extortion. This program is straight out of Orwell’s, Animal Farm, where some pigs are more equal than others.

Perhaps it’s time for a boycott of air travel. Perhaps we can begin by picking a single day to avoid air travel. The cost in lost tax revenue alone would send a clear and loud message that we want relief from the ever-increasing TSA punishment.

If our government is serious about protecting Americans from terrorism they can make some real changes.

I like your idea of ending air travel for terrorist country citizens un the USA.

I agree with you. In fact, I have already decided to personally boycott the airline industry. I do not plan on flying unless I absolutely have to. In addition, I have decided I will not obtain the Real ID, which is being mandated by the federal government and will be required in order to fly very shortly.

I agree that non-American citizens, specifically, ones from select countries where terrorists tend to originate should be the ones who have to have special screening and have bags checked. Why are we making American citizens subject to this unconstitutional treatment?

Planes should have the pilot compartments beefed up, if they haven't already been, and we should cease screening American citizens for knives and guns. American citizens should be able to start carrying knives just as they could prior to 9/11 and law-abiding American citizens should be allowed to carry firearms if they so choose.
