John Mica Quotes and Sayings

I hope you find great value in these Quotes by John Mica from my large collection of motivational and inspirational quotes and sayings.

Yes, I do agree we need health care reform;
however,
this bill badly misses the mark.
Congress can and must do better for the American people.
- John Mica

In the United States in 2009, more than 10.2 billion
trips were taken on transit trains and buses.
So far, the nation has not experienced a major transit attack since Sept.
11, but the March 2010 Moscow subway bombings and earlier
train attacks in London and Mumbai show that we must be prepared.
- John Mica

 

Other countries, such as Israel, successfully employ
behavior detection techniques at their airports,
but the bloated, ineffective bureaucracy of TSA has
produced another security failure for U.S.
transportation systems.
- John Mica

Everything TSA does is reactionary -
first they ban the box cutters,
then of course you have to take your shoes off,
then you have to take the liquids out,
now we have to be patted down in our private areas
because of the diaper bomber.
- John Mica

Under the Obama administration, TSA has been operating

They've just gone over the line in my opinion,
and again, there's a proper time for a pat down,
there's a proper time for an advanced technology body search,
but it has to be done with some thought.
- John Mica

TSA serves as the operator, administrator and regulator
for the nation's transportation security.
But in fact, the TSA bureaucracy does all it can to
thwart any conversion to a system with more private-sector
operations and strong federal oversight and standards.
This agency cannot, and should not, do it all.
- John Mica

It's not an Israeli model, it's a TSA,
screwed-up model.
It should actually be the person who's looking at the
ticket and talking to the individual.
Instead, they've hired people to stand around and observe,
which is a bastardization of what should be done.
- John Mica

Slovakia's joining the OECD in 1999 is totally dependent
on meeting economic reforms required such as transparency
and legislation that permits fair and open conduct of trade and business.
- John Mica

When the TSA was established, it was never envisioned
that it would become a huge,
unwieldy bureaucracy which was soon to grow to 67,000 employees.
As TSA has grown larger, more impersonal,
and administratively top-heavy, I believe it is important
that airports across the country consider utilizing
the opt-out provision provided by law.
- John Mica

Beyond that, the path to happiness
lies in living in the moment -
enjoying what you are doing today.
You don't need a reason to be happy,
just a choice.

Give your time and efforts freely or not at all.
When you are tempted to say,
"Oh, if I have to, I'll skip my golf game
