Just did that about 30 minutes ago. Every single TV and radio station in my area, plus all the personalities got an email from me.

I don't believe for a second that the Federal government would close Texas air space because Dallas/Ft. Worth is one of the busiest hubs for air travel in the world. Texas wouldn't be the only victims if the DOJ carried through with the threat; there would be a massive disruption of the entire nation's travel infrastructure, not to mention costing the airlines millions - if not billions - of dollars in lost revenue and added operating expenses.
BTW, under what provision does the DOJ even have jurisdiction over air travel? Seems a bit outside their purview to me.

Buni, thanks for sharing that TSA Blog link. By far, the comments are anti-TSA. I am proud of each and every one of them for speaking out! There were a few comments, imo, that bear repeating:
Anonymous Anonymous said...
The TSA is purposely inflaming the public in order to offer a biometric national ID card as the solution. Just look at the public statements DHS and TSA officials about "trusted travelers" and getting beyond "cookie cutter" approach.
They created the problem, and now will offer a "solution". The biometric national ID card would be rejected out of hand before this power grab by the TSA. I'm afraid most people will accept getting a palm scan or retinal scan matched to a federal ID database just to avoid being groped. Don't fall for it. Enough is enough.

I say pass the bill and then watch the people of Texas riot after their government has restricted them from flying in and out of the state. This could be a huge win for the state if they would just call the governments bluff. Could you imagine the uprising from people if the government did this!
Pass the bill and let everything fall into place!
