“The evening of the 20th of February 2011 started with relief, as I was anxious to get back to the important work of the Alaskan Legislature. Heading into security after time with the line of passengers, I felt upbeat. I’d blocked out the horror of three months earlier, but after the pleasant TSA agent checked the ticket and ID, I suddenly found myself directed into scanning by the Seattle Airport’s full-body imaging scan. The horror began again. A female agent placed herself blocking my passage. Scan results would again display that my breast cancer and the resulting scars pointed a TSA finger of irregularity at my chest. I would require invasive, probing hands of a stranger over my body.
(I applaud Mrs Cissna’s stand, especially as a female cancer patient. Why we as a nation can’t seem to find a better way to make airport security work is beyond comprehension.
I’m touched by Mrs. Cissna’s statement that she would not want to “submit to that horror” of that “twisted policy” again. I’m also reminded that an intrusive local, state, or federal government regulations have taken us into a nanny state.
There are regulations or laws that:
1. Allow teenagers to get abortions without the knowledge of their parents. Imagine how their parents must feel knowing that their daughter was allowed to submit to an intimate horror.
2. Permit legislatures to tax us into oblivion because they believe they know better than we do. From Obamma Care to introducing a bill in Maryland that would require taxpayers to fund “financial literacy” courses for school students instead of focusing on the three R’s.
3. Allow private enterprise to declare eminent domain against citizen property owners so a bigger financial interest can make a profit using the land owned by someone else.
3. Allow governments to stop the exploration for and taking of natural resources available in our own country.
4. Allow union thugs to take over state houses and Democrat law makers to flee a state in order to prevent a vote and a necessary debate.
5. Allow retirement ponzi schemes to proliferate and destroy local and state economies.
6. Make it easier for businesses to treat the older, and physically handicapped persons as worthless and unemployable. Age discrimination and discrimination against the handicapped exists but we pay it little mind.
7. Make it OK to text (use a cell phone) while at a red light. Oh yes, that’s us. Maryland.)
There are quite a few things we can get behind, we Democrats and Republicans. I just wish more eyes were open to the real injustices of this world and that we were really focused on solutions. Let’s hope this courageous Democrat Alaskan law maker takes her experience and runs with it – the right direction. Let’s get these laws changed. Let’s look at all of the kooky ones, the ones that make no sense, and the laws motivated by greed and politics. Let’s get it all done.
