I'm a tour director.
I'm in DC, and New York and Boston a lot, and I do tours in Canada and the rest of the world, too. The past two weeks I've been on the road
non-stop, primarily in New York and DC.
I've spent a majority of the time going through security checkpoints. At every attraction our bags are checked, we go through body scanners, we take
off our shoes, our coats. You know the drill. Today alone I've been through six scanners. There are policemen everywhere. Eleven years after 9/11,
I'm led to believe that terrorists are going to attack the bull on Wall Street?
Today we were touring Wall Street and you can't even walk up to the bull anymore and rub him for good luck. It's cordoned off and a policeman sits
there all day in his police car two feet away to make sure no one hops the fence and touches the bull. Seriously? Even the bull----? Has someone
made a terrorist threat against the bull? We've been walking by that bull on tour for a dozen years, but alas, it's been off limits for months now.
It looks ridiculous behind its steel fences, like a bull in a zoo.
DC isn't any better----it's worse... and the truth is, there is no terrorist hiding behind the Jefferson Memorial or the Wall Street bull. TPTB are
hoping to make life more difficult, more restricted. All under the guise of terrorism.
It takes hours to get in and see the new 9/11 memorial fountains. It takes hours to see the Statue of Liberty. It takes hours to see the Capitol,
hours to see the archives, hours to get through security just about everywhere. It's the new normal. No one questions it. Most people think they
are just doing their patriotic duty.
Out on the road so much, I really have a sense of what is happening to this country and how it plays out in everyday life.
So.....I'd love all of the people who are waiting for the aliens or the White Dragons or the Pentagon to come and save us to let me know when this
might happen. Because everyday it gets worse and worse out here.
Everyday we look a little less like America and more like Amerika.
