  1. Those who work for TSA are the visible part of security. The invisible surveillance and sousvellance technologies are the real security mechanisms. There are advanced technologies being used all around us to monitor and control people. They operate in the background. They are “ubiquitous”. They provide “feedback” that is perceived both on the conscious and the subconsious level. Those four S’s you see on some peoples boarding passes stand for Silent Sound Spread Spectrum! Look it up!

  2. TSA needs to pull thier head in! Talk about power trippers. I want to visit USA but cant be bothered getting harrassed by these hitler types. Barry and TSA need a reality check!
