Posted on 11/11/2012 2:03:57 PM PST by grumpygresh
Enforceability falls to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement and U.S. Customs and Border Protection both within the Department of Homeland Security, which is already developing advanced handheld card readers that can ascertain whether a traveler is carrying a credit card, debit card, or prepaid card. This differentiation is important because only prepaid card balances will need to be added to declaration report forms.

Pre customs protocol: take 2 or 3 viagra,wait 40 minutes. Put on sheer leotards and cowboy boots. Maybe a cowboy hat.
Before entering the customs check,watch 20 minutes of sloppy delicious porn on a portable player in a phone bank. Get really good and revved up to FULL SALUTE,if ya know what I mean. Bring things around to as they were when you were 14.
Enter the customs area,full salute. Continue impure thoughts.
As you approach the pat down,flare your eye-balls wide like Liberace,and flounce a bit.
GRIN REALLY WIDE.
Theyre trying to condition and degrade you a little,right? Why not share the love?”
Do this at the airport. Pretend to be embarrassed when they try to “pat” you down...
(ROTFLMAO :D )
“Our social security number has been that for a quite a while now. Our credit history and Internet usage can all be monitored and used to silence dissent.”
Yes, but technology cannot be used to ensure only eligible voters vote in an election to assure it’s not stole. Just look at last Tuesday.
shoule have these anyway - as crooks also have ‘readers’ to scan your card info - while in your pocket
>Two words: RFID wallet. Lots of them out there.
I have one I bought on Amazon for about $20 after reading about cyber criminals stealing credit card info using scanners at gas stations and coffee houses.
Even cheaper - make your own frequency blocker
Family, friendship and trust have long been used to overcome tyranny.
Say you are friends with another family in a different country. When they come to visit you put them up in a nice hotel of their choosing, you take them out to dinner every night and pick up the tab, and you act as guide for tourist sites, paying their way for expensive recreations.
Other than the cost of travel, they pay only for small things.
Then when you and your family visit their country, they show you the same courtesies, to a similar value. In effect you have each carried thousands of dollars across borders, but without doing so.
And this applies to much more than tourism.
After they’ve patted you down and viewed the scanner, they’ll know everything about your stuff. Just wait until they post it on the internet and the world will know.
Only metalized Mylar. Regular Mylar is just another plastic, and transparent to radio waves. Think "Faraday cage".....same principle. Or you can just get an aluminum wallet. There are a lot of preventives out there.
The virtual Berlin Wall, in place for a decade or so, is tightening even further around the US.
Clearly we are in the first couple of decad, or so, of the prophesied "...thousand years of darkness."
The shame of it is that no one "...did all that could be done" to prevent it".
Only metalized Mylar
Remember folks, metalized mylar. Buy it by the truckload and trip a DHS investigation.
When your friend opened the wallet, did s/he have any problem with the contents falling out? I'd heard that was a common problem (thinking about buying one till I heard that). I think it's otherwise a great idea.
Good deal ... thanks for the tip!
Or you could just buy a helium-filled balloon, let out the He, and wrap your cards in that......same stuff.
