Republicans Propose Bill to Protect Flying Public

In light of the threat to sue citizens who reported suspicious behavior by imams on a U.S. Airways flight, House Republicans have introduced a bill which would protect those who report their concerns from legal retaliation.

The Protecting Americans Fighting Terrorism Act of 2007 was introduced Thursday.

It is to be hoped this is a bill the Democrat majority will support.

While I certainly hope the Dems fully support this bill, I really can't wrap my brain around the fact that we (the U.S.) even need such a bill. Why are the conscientious pro-active citizens (which our government has called us all to be in this post-9/11 world) now put in the position of needing such protection?

It has become a ridiculously topsy-turvy time.

There is the impression that eventually absolutely everything in the daily minutiae of life will need to have a tentative bill waiting in the wings only to present itself when the inevitable occurs.

Again, why are the Flying I's been given control of this situation (which is what has occurred). Perhaps its legalese that the average jane is not privy to...
