The Death of Public Air Travel

The death of public air travel is coming. High gas prices? Nope. All those fees the airlines keep tacking on? Annoying, but no. Terrorism becoming a bigger threat? You’re getting warmer – and J-Nap will be happy to know her homegrown terrorism has become a reality.

If you answered “the TSA”, you get a gold star. The recent decision to allow the TSA to unionize is quite possibly the black plague to the air travel industry. Those thinking that pat downs and scanners were a giant government over-reach of power and  an intrusive breach of our personal liberty and privacy were just the beginning now have their vindication, although I think most would forgo reveling in it.

We have all seen what unions have done to the private sector. I don’t think Wes Craven could come up with a scarier recipe to kill the airline industry and with it put the finishing touches on the decline of the American economy. I don’t think it coincidence either that we have this unionization announcement and Obama chose to re-visit his high-speed rail fantasy several times over the last month; highlighting it in the SOTU II speech.

My advice to America: Make sure you have a good internet provider, skype and a really reliable car with decent gas mileage. Public air travel as we know it just saw  the coffin top closing.
