Total surveillance state: TSA plans to track all of your daily travels

As the lame-duck session of the 112th Congress begins, millions of Americans are looking to the elected members of the 113th Congress to fix a host of problems ailing the country. The economy and job creation aside, one of the most pressing issues is reining in out-of-control federal bureaucracies. The Environmental Protection Agency comes to mind, as does the Department of Agriculture's promotion of GM foods.

But additionally concerning is the rapid expansion of the size, scope and reach of the Transportation Security Administration, which continues to usurp authority and trample constitutional rights of more and more Americans - especially those who aren't flying.

The TSA and its mother agency, the Department of Homeland Security, was hurriedly established during the harried, hysterical weeks following the 9/11 attacks. Once designed to replace private airport security firms that were blamed for allowing the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorists to slip past checkpoints and take over four commercial airliners with razor blades, the TSA has since grown into a regulatory, bureaucratic behemoth that now claims jurisdiction over other modes of travel, including bus and train stations.

Because we all know that ordinary citizens are the enemy.

I think the enemy is our own government. They are on notice.

The mark of the beast, right on cue.

It will be interesting to see how they twist themselves into pretzels explaining why this chip, essentially an identity card, should not have to be presented when voting.

They can do that just by looking at your tickets.

Personally, I would like them to see my pocket Bible somewhere in their records of what they have me under surveillance, and I hope they catch me reading it.

You'll be asked to wear a federally-issued pedometer with GPS.

Before 9/11 I had a gazillion frequent flyer miles. I have not flown since. Anything I can do to remove the gov from my life is a bonus.

Me too. And I plan to wander around aimlessly a good bit of the time just to make the satellite look silly from space.

The government will be ignored, as in many other cases. Should the government persist, they will be TOLD where to fold and stuff their pedometer.

I remember as a youngster being appalled to learn that Soviet “citizens” had to carry passports to travel inside Russia.

Looks like America lost the cold war after all.

“The TSA and its mother agency, the Department of Homeland Security”

Damned Democrat intermeddling agencies like these and the EPA! Oh, wait...

Nevermind.

My brother and I will be going to the Grand Prix in Austin since I already have tix and it’s all set-up. After that - it’s Galt time.

Resistance is not futile. I believe that if they go with chip embedded papers, that many among us will find ways to hack and modify the chips or falsify the data. Not only that, some of us will find ways to hack the scanners and databases and corrupt them to the point of being useless.

This is what those 750,000,000 rounds of .40 hollow-point are for?

New business opportunities:

Manufacturing and distributing stylish faraday cages that render these ID chips useless.

Organizing gun-enthusiast boat trips on say Lake Powell (where the water is often over 400 ft) where tragic accidents result in the loss of firearms in deep water.

I’ve only got 600 rounds of .40 stocked in. I’d best get more while I can.

You'll find them being shipped to Muslim Brotherhood, I'll bet.

Facial recognition software combined with traffic cameras could possibly be made to track anyone using the streets, even if walking...check out Britain’s usage of cameras.

Cameras in the US break. A lot. Besides, a hoodie, with a bunch of IR LEDs around the face can't be seen as light by the naked eye, but tends to wash out modern cameras to the extent ID can't be made. ;)

I did electronic warfare for a living back in the old, old days. There nothing technical that doesn't have a countermeasure.
