Because I really want to for several reasons. I have ranted that the TSA no-fly list is just wrong. The reasons are to numerous to count but they all have the same belief, and that is we should not be controlled like cattle no matter how much you do not like their politics.
So here we have Donald E. Young and he is having found himself treated like many other of the common folk.
Alaska Airlines earlier this month thought Donald E. Young, the chairman of the U.S. House Transportation Committee, might be Donald Lee Young, a person on the government's no-fly list, and told him he couldn't board his Anchorage-to-Seattle flight.Ok. Maybe it is mean to enjoy his trials but this is the interesting part
The Alaska Republican, who eventually caught his plane, has company. Sen. Edward M. Kennedy, D-Mass., one of the world's most prominent politicians, was also told he was on the no-fly list. So was Rep. John Lewis, D-Ga., a leader of the civil rights movement.
Young revealed Wednesday he'd been confused with someone he described as "not a savory character" just before his committee approved a bill for the government to take over from the airlines the task of checking the names of passengers against government watch lists.So now the government will run the list and not answer our questions instead of the airlines not answering our question for the government. I would like to know how easy it was for him to get off around the list because most regular people are screwed when they have problems with it.
