Hmm, let's see. I look and dress like a transient, by choice.
I set off metal detectors due to artificial hips.
Wonder what my score is ?

Yeah I could see that coming.

For years they have had names that attract attention at passport control and now they will have a scoreing system on these people, a joint collaberation with the CIA? Just without having to reveal sensitive and detailed files on these particular people.

I've heard this system is called the Automated Targeting System "ATS".
Got a chuckle out of that!

+1000 i forgot to throw that in the initial post. too funny.

it does make one wonder what 'things' draw attention to whom 'they' decide is worthy of noting.
if you do not look like you have a corporate job, (clean, straight forward looking), etc. and of course the "your not white" card. it's great that all these things get put in place without them being voted into the system... at some point, we will lose that old piece of paper called the constitution.

Off-Topic, I know.
As a mechanic, before I found this site, ATS was known as Another Tight Spot.
On-Topic:
I really wonder what their criteria are. Looks ? Travel frequency ? Destination frequency ? Amount of luggage ? Variety of travel companions ? Can they look at accumulated credit card miles ?

Pondering,
Lex

You've pretty much got it. Add in # of cash purchased tickets, seating preferences, meal preferences, # of one way flights.

When in the military, I took quite a few one-way civ. flights.
Meal of choice ? Miller Lite.

Did my terror points just increase ?

makes me also wonder now that my passport has lapsed in november, what red-flag that will draw. not being paranoid, just laughing in disgust at the system.

I would imagine that uncomplementary post might raise your score. They are watching you know!


I think it's a wonderful idea and Im sure that we will be much safer once that it is in place!

This just figures.
We all knew this was coming.
We all know more is to come,how long before America says "Enough!"

We've had

1.NSA tappping
2.Watering down Hapious Corpes
3.HR6166(Allowing/Justifying touture)
4.Patriot Act 1 & 2
5.Eminent Domain
6.Now this

And why now?
Where were the need for these during
1.The Vietnam War
2.The WTC attack in 93'
3.The Oklahoma City Bombing
4.Pearl Haorbor
5.Korean War

At no point was there a need to interfere with Americans rights.
And no need to go around torturing people.
And all in the name of the neverending "War On Terror" and 9/11

This (IMO) is the beginning of a long awaited agenda.
This is beginning to snowball faster and faster.In the end America will resemble V for Vendetta(Which Europe is beginning to look like) or 1984.

And why are these things happening?
People have a small window to put an end to this runaway government.
The window closes when free speech no longer exists,and you are labeled an "unlawful enemy combatant".

+1000,000
the day free speech dies, will be a very dark day for the foundation that this country was built on. and i hope and pray (to my own god thing) that the people will stand up and be heard in some way or another. the fact that this goes published and the brunt of america just sits and swills it up WITHOUT a knee-jerk reaction is completely horrifying to me. (get out of your covenant-control neighborhood coma and wake the f*ck up people) man, i feel like a friggin' hippy posting this... this is real life america...

It amazes me how most forget the "alien" part when they bring up the "unlawful enemy combatant" spectre.
