I have written a few times on my blog about the eroding personal freedoms of our country. All in the name of safety and very few of them make us safer. Wiretaps, TSA, for goodness sake they get to know which library books I check out. I love living in the U.S. but I hate that my government has begun to treat me like a criminal. I am not some ultra liberal or a person who sees conspiracies around every corner. My political views are all over the place. Part of the problem is the government and the press have done such a good job of sugar coating what is actually going on. A recent study of the newspapers showed when water boarding was mentioned in conjunction with the U.S. it was called an interrogation. If it was another country doing it then torture was always the word used. As far as the TSA it really terrifies me. I was sexually abused as a child. I have no choice here. I have to take the supposedly safe radiation scan. There is no way I will ever be able to voluntarily put myself through a pat down. This is disturbing to me. I used to fly a lot. Now I try to drive whenever possible. This next year though I have to fly a lot more than I usually do. I have no choice. The government has also given me no choice with the TSA. Here's hoping they are right about the radiation. Wil I am very sorry you had to go through this. When you get back and you have time to think about how you want to approach this I would be more than willing to join any cause or help out in anyway you need. I hope this is the end of your discomfort. Sadly, I think it was probably only the first shot in the dark.
