The airport SHOULD be a police state....

Now, as much as I believe in the Reptilian agenda/coming global ascension, let's back down to dirt here. After 9/11 happened, I agreed with myself that airports should be like a police state. It's enough having to hurtle through the air on mechanical behemoths that could be brought down by a bad screw from a disgruntled and derelict mechanic, but having also the threat of being blown out of the air is more than enough for me personally.

Mind you, I hate the airport anyway, but maybe....just maybe, people would feel more comfortable with stricter and more efficient security standards. I want bags checked three times. I want people to be limited to the bare essentials, and I want cell-phone and other electronic companies to figure out ways that phones and Ipods CAN'T be used as detonators. I want to sit down, shut up, have a Jack and Coke, and survive the friggin flight.

I want their to be an obvious armed presence on the plane. I want any yahoo with ideas to know that there is a highly-trained soldier/security officer with a fully-loaded machine gun watching you even when he isn't watching you. Basically, I would feel more comfortable with the whole airport experience if I always saw someone responsible walking around with a machine-gun.

Yes yes, all those armed personnel may create a tragic situation where there wasn't one, and yes yes, ideas like these won't exactly help the airline industry off their backs, but flying as a means of transportation isn't going away anytime soon, and it certainly feels like a few tough adaptations might mean that airplanes can't and won't be used as weapons anymore.

yo thoughts?

How can you simultaneously believe in the coming global ascension and the need for a police state? The two are complete opposites.

Well, I was kinda joshing, and I certainly don't believe in a police state.

The point was that I believe airports should have an even more obvious security presence. People may get freaked if they see an officer with a machine gun. Some people may feel more comfortable. I'm with the latter group. and I think there also needs to be an obvious, if not armed, security presence on the airplane itself. It's a lot harder to try anything while being watched, and the airport is an example of a public institution where I would willingly give up some of my personal rights and comforts.
