With Christmas over, a lot of you are traveling back home and for a good majority that means packing up your luggage and heading to airport to get your free physical administered not by your medical doctor but by the good folks at the TSA. The airports, unfortunately and the flying experience, have become increasing less romantic over the years. Unless romance to you is being groped and prodded more than a McDonald’s cattle farm cow.
Too bad this is what entering our country has come to. It used to be such a beautiful, wonderful, joyous occasion. Now everyone is treated as a suspect and forced to some of the most humiliating experiences they’ll encounter in a long time. From the intrusive back scatter x-rays to the full body pat downs. The sad part is that it almost makes you not want to travel at all because of it. I can only imagine a foreigner coming from abroad and have to go through this routine. Yes I know it helps protect us in some manner but there’s got to be a better way.
