To the TSA Agents: A Call to Redeem Yourselves or Face the Future Repercussions
Sunday, September 11, 2011
We are now fast approaching the day we remember the 10th anniversary of Sept 11 2001 when the World trade Center collapsed, the Pentagon was hit, and the crash in Shanksville Pennsylvania. Ever since that day seeing people were in fear, no one was flying because they were afraid and was looking for the US Government to protect them. We were told freedom was attacked which was a half truth, it was not the Muslims in caves, but our own US government that was seeking to assault our liberties for more power.
All you TSA agents, can you say air travel is any safer than it was 10 years ago? Can you take the time to use common sense and take stock of how your duties affected everything? Can you show some empathy for one minute and ask yourself this? How would you feel if your siblings,your parents that were groped and they walked away in tears? Suppose if it was your girlfriend or grandma being felt up, they were feeling violated? You would not like it at all. You would not like it either if you were treated like you were guilty before proven innocent. If you do not like this policy and you still comply with it, than you are not exercising your power to say no. If you all stood up sending a message to the bureaucrats that we will not enforce such nonsense. The TSA would not have such a bad reputation with the public if they used common sense. When people travel, they like to be left alone, Many travelers do not want to be poked and prodded; they do not want to answer any personal questions that are none of anyone’s business. Put yourself in the air traveler’s place and ask yourself, would you like it if it was done to you? If you do not like it done to you,then you should treat others with the same dignity you want for yourself.
Do you think your bosses care about your safety and well being? Think again, Do your own homework on those full body scanners and the new foot scanners. Tell me if you think they are safe after your bosses lie to you. Have you known at Boston Logan Airport, your fellow colleagues are getting cancer standing next to these machines over a period of time? Do you know the Vietnam Veterans fought for years to get the Government to take responsibility for Agent Orange so former soldiers can get treatment. They just recently acknowledged Gulf War illness after years of denying it ever existed for almost 20 years. The US government is denying the recent Iraq and Afghanistan veterans are sick from depleted uranium and experimental vaccines, the US government is stonewalling taking responsibility by covering it up. The US Government lied to the first responders at Ground Zero after the Sept 11th attacks saying the air was safe to breathe when it was toxic while they looked for bodies. It took almost 10 years to get the US government to pay for treatment for the 9-11 first responders for related illness inhaling the poisonous air. If our government lied to these people, what makes you any different all of sudden telling you the truth about these full body scanners? They will not, they will stonewall and deny your illnesses was not work related for years. They will cover it up just like they did to the veterans and the 9-11 first responders.
