GE is $50/5 yrs. is marketing it like a club, wrong? because on the surface, it's exactly that.
US government wants more biometric data...no surprise there...the world police has been at war more often than its existence with a sizable list of enemies.
your post comes off rather ageist
I was born in the 80s and I don't even reside in the US, but thanks for the history lesson
a regulatory body for professionals vs a gov't agency, what difference does it make? why double-standards? one vets you to make sure you're not high-risk when working with vulnerables, the other assesses you're not high risk when you're confined in a tube 13000 ft in the air for 1-16 hours
lacking some empathy, sure, but you still haven't outlined how I have been pissy; I am not even mad in the slightest at this news...sounds like you're projecting?
trusted traveler program: minimizes my wait time at vehicle border crossings (which averages few times a month), the officers don't bark at me like i'm some most-wanted criminal, it's super handy for layovers, and I can show up at the airport a lot later and practically walk through #teamlasttoboard
you know what they say, don't knock on it until you've tried it. but maybe don't, can't have 'buh it's mah rite!!1' folks clogging the expediated lane.

lol. that tweet is a gem; looking like it's joining the auto club. last i looked AAA is not a government agency.
for a free citizen of the U.S.; the right to privacy and freedom of movement isn't anything about having something to hide
. if they did, such as being a fugitive, then they are not a free citizen as set by the constitution and don't have those rights. so you, along with others, can stop at the fallacious argument of having "nothing to hide". for what an employer may need, is completely different than what a government agency is lawfully allowed to do. unfortunately, what illegal action the executive branch may impose that only takes a stroke of a pen, takes years if not decades to undo in the court system.
had you went to any public high school until '72, you would have had a hard time in a class called "civics", that every student needed to pass before getting their diploma. students had a difficult time with that; understanding the rights afforded by the constitution and each individual's duty to protect them making it being the hardest class in the curriculum. but it seemed the nixion (then ford) administration didn't like all the college campus protests, that right to peacefully protest, and [illegally] coerced most all states with replacing "civics" with "social studies". i can understand ignorance, that can be addressed with facts and evidence, but willful ignorance is an inexcusable trait of self deluded egomaniacs.
have law review of rights vs public safety.
oh, i'm sure you don't care but there are other people, ya know.
in the meantime !CONGRATULATIONS!
you have completed your indoctrination. your pissy attitude, willful ignorance and complete lack of empathy will help advance you well in the regime!
lol. you know it doesn't matter how fast you get through TSA, that plane isn't going to leave until the crew, plane and tower/traffic are ready.

but seriously? why are you even connected to the Internet if you're worried about privacy? I sure hope you don't have a phone with equipped with a GPS or a camera...because that would be ironic and borderline comical . You realize what's public knowledge isn't even the tip of the iceberg right?
like I said, if you don't like it, there's always road trips, buses, trains, cargo ships.
You guys' vision of freedom sounds like living life in fear.
