Big Brother Toughens Passport Rules

Posted on January 23, 2007. Filed under: Team America |

AP reports (via Yahoo News) that new passport rules start January 23rd.

Some excerpts:

Starting Tuesday, Canadian, Mexican and Bermudan air travelers, as well as U.S. citizens flying home from those countries or the Caribbean, must display their passports to enter the United States.

….

For now, the rules affect only air travelers. Land and sea travelers will not have to show passports until at least January 2008. Air travelers who cannot produce a passport will be interviewed by customs agents, who will decide whether to let them into the country.

Here’s my response:

Privacy protections have been eroded gradually over many years. The Social Security Number has become a universal ID number, causing rampant and massive identity theft. Government routinely keeps records on the bank accounts, travel plans, and spending habits of law-abiding civilians, for no other reason than they “might” commit a crime in the future. (platform of the Libertarian National Committee)

Big Brother should just go ahead and require everyone in the United States to have bar codes implanted under their skin….

Big Brother is watching you….
