Well the stakes on -- planes.
Giving me an -- to say it's it's now looking into whether safety rules were violated on this -- actually happen.
But instead of worrying about people's dancing -- -- that the FAA.
Focus on -- stopping the next shoe bomber or the next -- nightmare dreamliner.
Debt bad and says the this -- as a joke.
-- -- -- -- It is well added.
I I guess I'm I always see with the government it's always distracted on substance have been -- -- well.
What I make of it nearly as we hear from Armageddon from the government right now media fair guess -- existing -- left over dog food.
But they're gonna spend a million dollars on the investigating something like this.
C'mon guys let's set some priorities here.
I don't think there was anything dangers there look they asked the stewardess for permission to do it everybody seemed to be pretty being -- -- look let's face it.
Flying these days -- such a misery anyway everybody needs to lighten up a little bit maybe as a way to do it may -- advances on every flight.
We don't get I was also look at them and I'm -- -- the captain and gotten.
You know the speaker said look we're about to hit some turbulence they would've sat down I mean that it would've sat down but I I think it's just.
-- overkill here and I'm just wondering whether it's yet another example of an agency that in this case should be focused on the safety.
Of our planes.
-- -- new -- of where they can take off and making sure that did go wrong guys aren't of the plane.
Dancing or not -- it seems backwards.
Well it is backwards -- and the problem we have is these people go overboard all the time I mean they're not gonna be fully satisfied until we're all completely sit dated and -- -- shares.
But -- need to have some flexibility here in some judgment.
That's what they're not showing.
This is a bureaucratic mentality they're pursuing something they don't need to pursue -- doing things they don't need to do I mean I still don't believe.
That we need to be going everybody going through X rays every time -- go on an airplane.
We need to have better.
Really good screening procedures you know the federal air marshals are pretty darn good you didn't see anybody jumping up and waving a gun -- these kids and telling him to sit down.
It -- see anybody rushing the cockpit you know people need to have.
Some sort of -- -- -- -- weigh on the sequestration.
Thing that's one of the arguments.
Against that is that you're gonna have fewer of those personnel screening at the airports and they're going to be longer lines and a security's going to be threatened part of a number doomsday stories -- head of the cuts going into effect what do you make -- Well I think that's just more real -- liberty play it -- everybody says my gosh you do this you cut my agency the statue of liberty is gonna get stolen tomorrow.
You know it's just not going to happen these people can be cut back they need to be cut back.
You know we keep hearing about all these taxes I was struck by one that you didn't even mention -- the last segment.
Senator Blumenthal wants to have a per -- tax for ammunition them so I'm waiting next for a coin operated handgun that I have to put a quarter and every time I wanna make a shot.
You know this is it's getting way out of hand the -- needs to be cut back the FAA needs to be brought to reality and we need to make flying a lot more efficient and a lot safer.
For everybody concerned that does not mean we need more screening it does not mean we need more people in our way making our lives miserable every time we travel.
-- -- thank you very much in -- and he's the former US defense deputy undersecretary always good seeing in the meantime.
