Given the world we live in, and the
way things are going use your gut
feeling or intuition to tell us how
safe you feel.

Be honest.. Be REAL!

In what sense, worried about a terrorist blowing up my city or worried that my job is about to fall through?

Talon, In a general sense, what you
feel about the security of the world
YOU live in!

Do you believe (we) as a world are
safe?

Do you feel safe about travel?

Do you feel all that can be done to
make the world more secure is?

Really everyone has their own feelings
but this is just about what YOU feel!

And that means anyone who reads this!

not to put a dampner on anyone, but safety is an illusion, a goal that cannot be reached unless you eliminate all forms of hate.

As for my self and my location. Yes I feel safe from imminate threat from terrorist. No I do not feel safe if I travel. There are too many security gaps in Airlines railroads, bus terminals and every other mode of transport. As long as there are those that hate my skin color, my religion, my nationality or my political beliefs. I will not be safe.

Now I'm ranting crying.gif

Peace

"Safe" is a very relitaive term, i feel safe in my home, because i take the measure to be safe.

QUOTE
Do you feel safe about travel?

I travel without worry, air travel hold a special fear for me, My Father was in the aviation industry for 40 years, my husband for 15 years and going strong.  It not the terroirst that scare, it's all of the other stuff that could go wrong that scar me.
I have no controll, nor does anybody else over hijackers.  If today is your day, it's your day, live with it. wink2.gif

No.

Not a whole alot has changed.  what i do find scary is how safty check are being run by airport officials; example ( and this a true story)  on 6-2002  i left SJO ( san Jose Int) for BUR ( Burbank), it's about a a 45 min flight,  so here i go, as i was getting ready to broad, with my tix and Id in hand, the fight attadent took my tix to check for "random safty check"marker, it lack the marker, then look at my id and the said the following, "Hmm, your name is Ashdi, that middle eastren right?  You know, i cann't pronouce your name! please step aside for the next for random check!" I couldn't believe what i had heard, so i told him, he best re-pharse that or he was going loose his job today!  i was not upset that i was being profiled, i was not upset that i was i asked to be check, i don't care about that, i don't believe that invaildtion of my rights, i was upset that the strangly dressed group 5 men standing a  huttle, looking like they up to something didn't cause any alarm, but a 23years 5'3 women in bussiness attire, with only a purse as carry-on had cause an alarm of terriosm.  I have more stories like this,  one that would make re-think the whole "random sceurty check".  If any of you feel think that you are safe, your not.  BTW, he did loose his job when i got back from my trip!

I have to agree with you on this one. I'm not so worried about hijackers but of a malfunction with the aircraft. I mean if something goes wrong, you can't just get out and open the hood to check. crying.gif

Peace and happy landings

As you have read in the early posts, my husband and i own a aviation co.  You would amazed at phone call we get from avianothics calling to place order.  They have no idea wha they are doing, we had someone place an order for a part that doesn't  exsits.   it has become so bad, that we ask what type of aircraft the parts are for!

A year ago an aviathonics placed an order for engige paint, simple in nuff.  3 weeks later we got a call from him saying that he was going to sue us for sending him the wrong part.  After we spoke to him, he found out that he had painted the inside of the engige!  How he that is a big mystires, and why he did is a bigger mystires.  It's calls like these that driving is the proferable mode of travel for my family!

I'm not worried about terrorists...although I will admit I sometimes do get a little dontgetit.gif when I'm in the center of Glasgow, which is a far more likely target for bombings and stuff that Paisley tongue.gif Usually it doesn't bother me...I actually feel more worried for my friends who do live in major cities than I do for me.

I'm worried about the assylum seekers thing...I'm worried that in a few years my culture's going to be stepped on and grinded until it's just not there anymore, because of all this PC rubbish.

I'm worried they might one day make another Sinbad movie dontgetit.gif w00t.gif dontgetit.gif

You know Saraphina, i don't how the assylum is granted in the uk, but it's hard very hard here in the US.  These poeple have to to show beyond proof that they need protaction from their goverment, like my parents had to.

I also understand you worries about loosing your culture, but remmber your culture is not something that could be taken away from you, unless you let them!

Over here you just have to get into the country, after that we can't move you by force only if you volunteer. AS are also supplied housing and state benifits automaticlly, whilst 700,000 of British remain on the streets.

The ironic thing is they come in from France....damn those French for persecuting them so  tongue.gif

Most schools don't celebrate christmas anymore, and those that do don't allow children to put pictures of Santa, Christmas trees and the like on posters or cards. In fact, lots of holidays from our own culture are undergoing that treatment...

There are so many elements of our lives that are being stepped like that...it's not the fault of the assylum seekers (although a small number of them are extremely vocal about how much better their society is than ours), but rather the government's ridiculous policies and "political correctness gone insane" attitude that worries me tongue.gif

Truth is, while I agree nobody can take my culture away from me...I'm going to consider myself a Scot my entire life, I'm going to celebrate the holidays and values that I believe in until the day I die, and I'm going to raise my children to be Scots too...I'm just worried that I'm gonna be the minority in my own country wacko.gif
