Yet another reason the DHS should be disbanded. You know, beside the half-billion other reasons. The RIAA treats their customers this way, and it got them everylasting scorn and loss of a non-trivial amount of their customer base. The government treats their customers this way (let's face it, we're no longer citizens, we're customers), and there is absolutely nothing we can do. If we speak out, we're labelled as "unamerican", and subject to a host of more intrusive measures, from which we also have no recourse. Habeas corpus be damned! Fourth amendment be damned!
I refuse to get on a plane in the US until they're gone... so that means I'm probably not going to fly again in my lifetime.
