Saturday a week ago, TSA officials in Florida forced a 95 year-old woman who has terminal leukemia to remove her adult diaper to be inspected. They claimed to have found something “suspicious” on her leg.
Seriously, have we reached a point where we, as a nation, are so pants-pissingly scared of a bunch of self-immolating neolithic goatherds that we are willing to inflict any indignity on any citizen at any time rather than expose ourselves to the slightest bit of risk?
I couldn’t agree more. If our forefathers had this same level of risk aversion, we’d still be a colony and the National Anthem would be God Save the Queen.
