The dogs of war
Program length – 9:23
I got the number wrong
Chertoff & Company have raised the price of their mandatory full body irradiation devices from $160,000 to $250,000 since the winter.
Why the big price increase?
They’ve got a lot of Congressmen to pay off.
The good news is that the GOP (god bless their pointy little heads) have said “NO” to funding additional purchases of these things.
Personally, I made the decision back in November to stop flying into or out of any airport that uses these things which means I’m not flying in the US.
I’m lucky that I no longer have to fly for work and most of my family is within a reasonable drive.
The fact is my quality of life has improved noticeably since I stopped flying. No more stress of getting to the airport on time and dealing with all the crap that takes place there and on the planes.
I’m discovering all the great things I can do within 250 miles of my home and have learned that I’d never run out of interesting, pleasurable things to do within that radius in ten lifetimes.
Disney World? Las Vegas? Is it really worth getting on a plane to go to places like that and in doing so support outrageous conduct on the part of the government?
I don’t think so, but that’s just me.
