You Will Think Twice about Flying in the United States after Reading This

A female airline passenger gets to meet the TSA, FBI etc. close up:
 Silly me. I thought flying on 9/11 would be easy. I figured most people would choose not to fly that day so lines would be short, planes would be lightly filled and though security might be ratcheted up, we’d all feel safer knowing we had come a long way since that dreadful Tuesday morning 10 years ago.

But then armed officers stormed my plane, threw me in handcuffs and locked me up.

My flight from Denver landed in Detroit on time. I sent a text message to my husband to let him know we had landed and I would be home by dinner. The plane stopped on the tarmac, seemingly waiting to have the gate cleared. We waited. I played on my phone, checking Facebook, scrolling through my Twitter feed. After a while of sitting there, I decided to call my husband to tell him the plane was being delayed and I would call him when I got off the plane.

Just as I hung up the phone, the captain came over the loudspeaker and announced that the airport authorities wanted to move the airplane to a different part of the airport. Must be a blocked gate or something, I thought. But then he said: Everyone remain in your seats or there will be consequences. Sounded serious. I looked out the window and saw a squadron of police cars following the plane, lights flashing. I turned to my neighbor, who happened to be an Indian man, in wonderment. What is going on? Others on the plane were remarking at the police as well. Getting a little uneasy, I decided the best thing for me to do was to tweet about the experience. If the plane was going to blow up, at least there’d be some record on my part.

Read the rest here.


  1. if you're swarthy and "shifty' looking.

  2. The assault on human dignity continues. More horror stories will be coming forward from innocent victims of our relentless pursuit to a total totalitarian state. Check and see where your rep voted on the Patriot bill, if affirmative, he is now also your jailer. FEMA has plenty of jail space available now it appears. Concentration camps for the colored and suspicious. Enter the Twilight Zone of abuse, induced by our ruling class. Tattoos anyone.

  3. It would have been far more efficient if the U.S. had said "you know, now that we've seen what you're trying to accomplish, we surrender" to Germany in 1945.

  4. Another day in the USSA

    Lol! That's the gem of the day IMO. I like it.

  6. Too bad she had to endure 4 hours of inconvenience, but what if the threat had been real? Like it or not, we are now at the point the British were during the I.R.A. terrorism and what Israelies live with every day. People want to kill us and will exploit any weaknesses. This won't make me hesitate to fly at all.

    The British and Israelis? If you mean that our government is occupying other people's land and killing innocents, and we are reaping the blowback from that, then I agree. But the solution is to end the occupations, not to accept a police state.
