The Unfriendly Skies Need to Change—A Solution
I have lamented my hatred of flying commercial airlines many times. I hate the privacy invasion and trashing of my right to be free from unreasonable searches. Americans have fought and died for the right not to be randomly searched like criminals. I hate the TSA weenies along with the theft from my luggage, delays and misery inflicted at the direction of ignorant government bureaucrats.
Our heavy handed and lawless government has exceeded whatever terrorism threat we have had from the Muslims. The same government lets Muslims travel on passports from countries that are hostile to America. If our government officials really cared about American’s safety they’d keep the unfriendly aliens off of our planes. The ”No Fly Terror Watch List” is yet another unworkable joke.
For the super wealthy, corporate jets is the solution to the TSA abuse, delays and aggravation of air travel. Underground corporate airlines of sorts have been established to move likeminded folks from coast to coast.
It’s time for a commercial airline company to offer travel with their own security policies in place instead of the government’s. They can end the searching and silliness for real security. Of course they’d need a waiver from TSA regulations and their own terminals.
Here are the proposed rules:
1. All pilots must be trained and armed with weapons.
2. All passengers except small children must have a passport from the USA or a friendly country.
3. All Americans traveling with valid concealed weapon permits can carry their firearms on board the aircraft.
4. The carriers shall train their employees to profile passengers for behavior issues.
5. All passengers must agree in writing to the policies or simply make other travel arrangements.
8. The airline will have the right to hire their own trained and qualified air marshals.
This would be the safest airline found anywhere and the most friendly to the civil liberties of Americans.
Here is an article on the subject of corporate travel vs commercial travel.
