With this move, not only are plane fares going to increase, but our taxes will be higher because we will have to support another government agency -- and it will not increase our safety or security ("CAPPS II Stands Alone, Feds Say," Jan. 13, 2004)! It will just take away more of our freedom and liberty until we are under a government dictatorship posing as a democracy.
The U.S. Homeland Security is becoming the KGB. This is not the country of my parents or my grandparents. Under Bush, his minions are using fear to take away our rights, our money and any of our true security under the guise that it is for our own good. Abusive parents do the same thing. While the quotes in the article state there will be no connection among agencies, it will be way too late for the people to do anything about it when it happens. As control escalates and our freedom deteriorates, individuals will be targeted for any reason, including voting against the incumbent in the next election. It is a travesty!
Shame on the people who are supporting this! And shame on any airline that supports it! Better to be brave and fight this than to give in to the Bush and Cheney bullies. I will not fly any airline that allows this.
