The contents of that suspicious-looking bag turned out to bea bagel with cream cheese, a set of keys and a hat.
But in America’s ultra-paranoid environment wherethe U.S.governmentactually encourages people to spy on each other(http://www.naturalnews.com/030648_W…), apparently just about anything can set off the suspicions of the citizens’ secret police. Maybe you talk funny, or walk funny or just look funny. Maybe your skin isn’t white. Maybe you speak with some sort of foreign accent which, as all Americans already know, means you must be a terrorist.
Perhaps you pay with cash instead of a credit card. What? Only a terrorist would carry cash! Or maybe you are just “suspiciously minding your own business” and not chatting it up with all the other people around you. That makes you a potential terrorist, too, didn’t you know?
I can’t wait to see how quickly I’ll be arrested on my next flight. I bringsuperfoodpowders and a Blender Bottle with that springy metal mixer inside. So during the flight, I’msittingthere mixing water and powders like some sort of mad chemist. Some nutritional noob sitting nearby would no doubt have no clue what was really going on and probably call the flight attendant to report, in secretive tones, “There’s a strange man sitting over there mixing up a bomb!”
And that’s all it would take. The FBI‘s anti-terrorism unit would be called out, the plane would be diverted to the nearest landing strip, the on-board Air Marshall would pull a gun on me, and I’d be arrested upon landing, then interrogated for 48 hours under the U.S. Patriot Act (no more Bill of Rights, see?) for the mere act of drinking superfoods on a flight.
This is no exaggeration, by the way. The paranoia has reached precisely such a level on airplanes crossing the skies ofAmericatoday. This is all due togovernment-sponsored paranoiaand the idea that people should all spy on each other. Just today, the Obama administration, which was elected primarily to oppose the secret prisons and fear-mongering of the Bush administration, has now announced thatfederal agencies should all spy on their employeesto prevent futureWikileaksincidents (http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/4091643…).
Now, the mere act of not being a “happy” federal employee makes you a suspicious target for being spied on, too. This just gets more and more like1984all the time, doesn’t it?
Be sure to watch my “report suspicious behavior at Wal-Mart” video at:http://www.naturalnews.tv/v.asp?v=5…
Oh, and don’t bring a bagel on any flights. Your average corn-fed American thinks a bagel is “foreignfood” and it immediately raises red flags that you might be a terrorist. Same story with hummous. Actually, hummous is even more suspicious and can earn you a trip to Guantanamo Bay just for mentioning it, because your typical TSA moron can’t differentiate between “hummous” and “Hamas.” They think “hummous” is a terrorist group.
The whole thing is so sadly laughable. Instead of addressing the real threats to America (such as the Federal Reserve andthe FDA), the U.S. government turns the citizenry into a network of secret spies who now accuse each other of being terrorists for things like going to the bathroom too many times during a flight. (I drank some watermelon juice, okay?)
If you really want to protect the safety of the American people, justdismantle theFDAand end the government-protected monopolies forBig Pharmaand conventional medicine. You would save upwards ofseveral hundred thousand lives a yearjust from the decrease in deaths caused by the medical industry.
Big Pharma’s FDA-approved drugs, just by themselves, kill roughly30 times the number of Americans killed in 9/11— every year! That’s why the FDA is far more dangerous than any terrorism group (http://www.naturalnews.com/009278.html).
