  •  About that No-Fly list..... (11+ / 0-)

    As far as I know, you can:

    • end up on it for no apparent reason
    • won't know you're on it till you try to get on a plane (Imagine being overseas, trying to get home...)
    • will not be told WHY you're on it
    • will not be told WHO put you on it
    • have no one to appeal to, to get off it

    Of course, if you're rich enough to have your own private jet, that MAY not be a problem. And good luck if somebody tips the DEA they think you're using that plane to smuggle drugs...

    It wasn't the TSA that started this - it's an extension of the same logic used in the War On Drugs.

    "No special skill, no standard attitude, no technology, and no organization - no matter how valuable - can safely replace thought itself."
