so my question is:

What happens if everyone boycotts
air travel indefinitely til the Patriot Act
is repealed ???

Would it bankrupt the airlines ???
a victim of their own greed ???

Or would the US Gov bail them out
like they did GM and Goldman Sachs
and Wall Street ??

your thoughts ???

my thoughts...

it will never happen...

people are too lazy these days to boycott anything...

people don't care enough about their liberties enough to actually do something about it as long as they still have their conveniences ..

I'm sure there will come a day when they go to far and people really get pissed, but by then the only thing that will make a difference is the spilling of blood...

I haven't flown in 2 years... I take the train or drive nowadays... looks like the train might cease to be an option soon too...

I drive everywhere.

But the sheeple will continue taking it up the wazoo. It is pointless.

Probably the bail out you mention, boon. I'd fly for a family emergency...I guess...other than that, it's road-trips for me.

I'm not flying anymore period. After all the TSA nonsense, and the horrible service that I've gotten from a few airlines lately... I'm just done.

And now after reading about the Federal Government sticking their nose into Texas's business... I'm 100% done with ever flying again.

There is a better chance of you getting struck by lightning while simultaneously winning a scratch off lottery ticket than getting killed by a terrorist on a plane. Yet the TSA groping our private parts is soooo necessary.

And the TSA can't even prevent weapons and other deadly items from getting through their "security".

That would not be enough to repeal the Patriot Act. It would be a good start. But in today's world with the internets being such a large part of our society, it makes Air travel by jet almost a necessity for a global economy.

With that said, more money should be put into private air travel such as blimps. Not as speedy, but in my opinion, safer.

I think its a great idea. Talk with money. In the US you can't really travel by train because the airplanes stopped all that. 200+mph trains should not be a problem. The only way I could see something like that is if everyone didn't fly for 2/3 weeks.

It would be --- inconvenient --- to not get from point A to B --- quickly --- .

But it is MORE INCONVENIENT to be under total and complete evil fascist control. I have faith that people still asleep can awake. As long as we have the internet the way it is. I just don't know though; if 'They' threw the kill switch on it.

Sounds like a winner to me. I not much into having strangers hands down my pants to begin with. There would be no reason to bail them out if they weren't doing business. I think that could be a start if it isn't convincing enough then move on to other things. Of course I am one of those people that think we should stop everything until they start to fix things.

well I'm not too fond of them groping me either
but what really gets my goat is seeing it done
to babies and 3 yr olds.

Ok, eeeek. I just had a thought. What if TPTB are making plane travel harder to help them push the high speed rail on us? You know like this: www.mercurynews.com...

The last time I flew I felt like I was getting arrested. The only thing missing was the fingerprinting. There is no way I would take a child of mine to the airport to begin with.

me either. It's indoctrinating kids that
it's ok for them to do this.

have you seen the new TSA pamphlets
for kids ?? They seem to be appealing
to the kids by means of cartoon characters.



or was that image just a joke

I really very much like and approve of high speed rail. It's time we catch up with other modern countries in that regard. HOWEVER!!! This Forbes article says the TSA wants to target train passengers and even pedestrians.

I am already doing this myself personally. Whether or not others follow me, I really don't care anymore. It is a waste of time and energy to try to get others to follow. I can't change anything other than what I do, and I have definitely done so.

I believe it's because they are too busy trying to keep their families and themselves from becoming homeless!
