The Elite Have A Great Fear Of Death

Death Skull - Public DomainIf there is one thing that the elite of the world fear more than anything else, it is death.  They spend an extraordinary amount of time and energy attempting to shield themselves from potential threats, to separate themselves from the general population and to do whatever they can to extend their lifespans.  They travel with multiple bodyguards, they install “safe rooms” in their homes, they buy private islands on the other side of the world and they invest huge amounts of money into life extension technologies and research.  They do all of these things in a desperate attempt to battle an enemy that they have never been able to defeat – death.  And in this day and age, the elite are becoming more paranoid than ever.  They know that as the gap between the wealthy and the poor has exploded that they have become bigger targets than ever.  So firms that provide private security, “safe rooms” and high tech “security bunkers” for the elite are doing a booming business these days.  Many of the elite live in constant fear and absolutely crave security, and they are willing to pay big bucks to get it.

Desperation Sets In: More Than 100,000 People Apply For Low Paying Flight Attendant Positions With Delta Air Lines

All across America, job seekers are becoming increasingly desperate.  Today, unemployed Americans often find themselves competing against hundreds or even thousands of other job applicants for the same position.  An absolutely stunning example of this happened recently when more than 100,000 people applied for just 1,000 open flight attendant positions with Delta Air Lines.  The starting salary for these positions is only “in the upper $20,000s”, and serving peanuts and sodas to cranky passengers can get really old really fast.  But this just shows how desperate people are becoming.  For many unemployed Americans, any job is a good job at this point.  Right now there are approximately 5 unemployed Americans for every single job opening, and 6 million Americans have been out of work for 6 months or longer.  When you get that many unemployed people fighting over so few positions the desperation in the air becomes almost palpable.

22 Incredibly Revealing Quotes About Enhanced Pat Downs And TSA Groping

At what point will Americans finally stop losing more liberty and freedom?  With each passing year, the iron grip of the government gets even tighter, and each time it does we are told that it is either for “our safety” or for “national security”.  One can only imagine what is going to happen the next time there is any kind of “terror incident” on an airplane.  They are going to point to all those Americans who are complaining about “enhanced pat downs” and TSA groping as the reason why security is not tough enough.  So where does all this end?  Will we eventually all have to go through a body cavity search just to get on an airplane?  Will they start groping us at school, at work and at sporting events?  Are we going to have to “lock down” America from coast to coast to ensure that no terrorist ever is able to harm any American?

Will TSA Groping Destroy Tourism In The United States?

One of the things that has not been considered in the debate over the horrific new TSA security procedures is the economic impact that all of this is going to have.  The rest of the world is watching what is going on, and millions of people are going to decide that they simply do not want to go through the hassle of flying to the United States.  There are some cultures where allowing a strange person to touch your private areas is unthinkable.  In 2009, 54.9 million tourists visited the United States, and those tourists spent approximately 93 billion dollars.  That doesn’t even count all of the internal tourism in the United States which is far greater.  Tourism is the first, second or third biggest employer in 29 U.S. states.  So what happens if a significant chunk of tourists decide that they are simply not going to fly because of the new full body scanners and the new “enhanced pat-downs”?

Senator Rockefeller To TSA Chief John Pistole: “I Think You’re Doing A Terrific Job”

The backlash against new TSA airport screening procedures has reached a deafening crescendo, and so you would think that the politicians in Washington D.C. would be getting the message. But so far, most of them seem to be just as supportive of the TSA as ever. For example, what did the chairman of the Senate committee overseeing air travel, Jay Rockefeller, have to say to TSA chief John Pistole during a Senate hearing on these new security procedures the other day? “I Think You’re Doing A Terrific Job.” Yes, you read that correctly. Senator Rockefeller had nothing but praise for Pistole and the new screening procedures. Apparently Rockefeller thinks that TSA officials feeling up the genitals of U.S. air travelers with the fronts of their hands is a wonderful thing. It is even being reported that in some instances TSA officials are actually reaching down the pants of men and up the skirts of women during these enhanced pat-downs. Not only is this totally criminal, but considering the fact that TSA officials do this countless times without changing their gloves it is also a serious health hazard. But most of our “leaders” in Washington D.C. continue to insist that we should stop protesting because this is all being done “for our own good”. (Read More...)
