Political Junk

I.   Muslim family at Gatwick Airport blocked by US from boarding flight to Disneyland

       http://www.upi.com/Top_News/World-News/2015/12/23/Muslim-family-        at-Gatwick-Airport-blocked-by-US-from-boarding-flight-to-Disneyland/3271450873163/

        Okay, the problem of security for the family is understandable - despite it not being their choice - it's understandable.  It's a concern not unike the internment of Japanese Americans during World War II, except in this case the subjected are not interned but merely turned away.
     However, the govt. continues to admonish us - apparently 'us' being non-Muslims - to
'go about life unafraid';  to not be beholden to terrorist fears.  Yet this Muslim family, acting in such a manner, unintimidated despite some risks to their personhood, end up being stoppped. 
        The worst part of this story is that the family won't be refunded their expenditure.  I'm fairly certain they didn't purchase, for $13,000, access to the airport lounge as if they would be going to Disneyland and then to be turned away at the last minute.  I can't imagine them saying as they left the airport, "Oh my!  It was worth every penny wasn't it dear?"  Maybe I should correct myself.  The worst part of this story is the lack of a reasonable explanation for keeping their money.  Or, maybe I should correct myself again.  The worst part of this story is the liklihood of some change of mind and the refunding of the money;  As if it couldn't be expected that the businesses involved would treat them as people and customers rather than picking their pocket.
