And So The Terrorists Win
Are you fed up yet? Have you had enough of the answer “we’re doing it to protect you?”
I’m tired of it taking a week to open a brokerage account because they need to make sure I’m not a security risk. Really? You have my money transferred from an account under my name to be traded in an account under my name. How is this a security risk?
I’m tired of the TSA. I have a choice: either get sexually assaulted or have them take naked pictures of me. Never mind the invasion of my privacy or violation of my constitutional rights against unlawful search and seizure.
I’m tired of the attempts to infringe on my 2nd
amendment rights (right to bear arms). All the regulations in the world won’t keep the guns away from criminals. The laws don’t prevent domestic violence. They just make it harder for law abiding citizens to defend themselves.
How about all the regulations that they put in our way when trying to do business? Are you tired of hundreds (or thousands) of rules and laws that you need to follow? How can you make sure you are compliant unless you have a “compliance department?” How much time and cost does this add, all without adding any value to your customers?
In the end, none of these things add to our security. Criminals and terrorists know how to easily circumvent the security measures. They only make our lives harder, and bit by bit we give away our rights and freedoms.
