New lows in the "No FLY LIST".
The article says in addition to everyone being branded a color, people will have numeric scores (kind of like your credit).
As much as I hate admitting I may be less credit worthy than a neighbor based on (god knows what), I refuse to think Americans need to be branded with
computer modeling systems of % likely to take over airplanes and crash them into fields.
It's insulting thinking my grandfather's interest in flying and subscriptions to gun magazines may potentially make him a "7" terror threat, when
some terrorist intentionally avoiding the radar remains a "ZERO".
It's a new low in civil liberties when downloading a damn Bob Seager song (I'm not a number) might mean you are a terror sympathizer.
Another question: What about TYPOS? Does having a name SIMILAR to terrorists make you a threat? It has for some already. If there's a GOD some
terrorist named Katerina Harriz is suspect number 1, meaning Katherine Harris gets a well deserved cavity probe. There's probably a few thousand
chads for Gore up there anyway.
This is a HUGE issue for me.
NO MODELING AND PUBLIC BRANDING!!!
