I’ve quit my life and moved to Florida to work as a writer. See ya.

Officials say an 18-month-old girl was mistakenly pulled off a JetBlue flight before it left Fort Lauderdale because airline employees thought her name was on the U.S. no-fly list.

The child’s parents told ABC television network affiliate WPBF they believe they were targeted because they are of Middle Eastern descent and the mother wears a hijab.

    This whole security and terroist threat thing is the biggest bunch of bull shit that has ever been foisted on the flying public. As far as I am concerned, there is no terrorist threat. It’s just like the constant news coverage of war in the novel “1984”, all designed to keep the anxiety level high among the “Proles”. When you go through an airport and have to talk to one person there are five more people in some kind of uniform standing around behind him or her glaring at you and doing nothing. It is the biggest make work project in the world and it does nothing to stimulate the economy, it is a drain on the economy. Taking a child off of the plane because of a no fly list, it is ridiculous. It is a make work project for stupid people. If you hesitate when asked the colour of your blue shirt and have to think about it, you are guaranteed a job in airport security.

    To be fair, the baby did admit to being concealed for several months.
