Dont let Charles scare you. It is far from chaotic anarchy here. The airport screenings can be annoying but outside of that Ive never been given a
hard time outside of that. No groping either I fly frequently and I have gotten the scanner and the powder on your hands to check for bomb residue
before but its never been more than a 5 minute ordeal.
Im a white guy with dark hair and a beard btw. As far as fear of getting stopped by police? I can see having that fear based on what you see in our
media but to be honest if you just show some respect when interacting with any officials you will be totally fine. Also, being a foreigner will get
you brownie points with the cops if anything as long as you have a valid ID to present.
We dont see many tourists from overseas here anyways, so if you were to get stopped, itd be a welcome change up to an officers average daily
This is coming from a guy who has had many, many, many, run ins with the law both as an innocent civillian and otherwise.
Oh and screw visiting NYC. I mean sure, see Times Square for the experience. But other than that its all about checking out the beautiful
landscapes and mountains out west in this country.
Maybe stop by the gulf to take a swim in an ocean that is warm as bathwater. Come to Colorado and ill tell you where to go to take in the full
American experience and all the freedoms weve got if you so choose.
Ive visited and lived in many different states here and in my opinion the US can basically be broken up into several different countries just
because the social and weather climate is so different. Youve got the South, the Northeast, the pacific northwest, the midwest, the west coast, the
pacific northwest, the gulf coast, and then Texas and Colorado can pretty much fit in their own category each.
That all being said - screw the TSA. Theyve never prevented anything and exist solely to condition people and add to the beuracracy. Basically it is
a bull# organization providing bull# jobs not actually necesarry but thats just how late stage capitalism goes.
