I'm totally shocked.SI VIS PACEM PARA BELLUM-Ex-Sheriff Martin Howe to Will Kane in "High Noon"

Democrats want all workers -- from security to luggage screeners -- to be federal employees, saying that a federal work force would make the nation's airports more secure. Federal workers likely would become unionized employees.
House Republicans want federal supervisors overseeing a private work force. They argue the job could be performed just as effectively by private-sector employees. A private work force also would mean the employees would not have union or civil service protection shielding them from disciplinary action and firings for poor work performance, the bill's backers said. "

To war and arms I fly. - Lovelace
