Pay for freedom
    #4255391 - 06/04/05 11:36 AM (12 years, 10 months ago)



Beginning June 21, the Orlando airport will let travelers pay $80 a year for a card that guarantees an exclusive security line and the promise of no random secondary pat-down. To get this new "Clear" card, travelers would have to be vetted by the Department of Homeland Security and submit to fingerprint and iris scans.

Let me get this straight. I'm forced to pay for Homeland Security then given a "chance" to pay more so I'm not as harrased by them as I could be?

I dont think your paying for freedom. I think its paying and losing some freedom, for the sake of convenience.

That'll be $20 for making this thread about it.

I have always thought they should have a security line that has less of a wait, but you have to pay for it. I know I would pay a few bucks to have to wait in a shorter line, but I think that those in that line should have to have the same security checks as everyone else.

"Of all tyrannies, a tyranny exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end, for they do so with the approval of their own conscience." - C.S. Lewis

"I would rather be exposed to the inconveniencies attending too much liberty than to those attending too small a degree of it." - Thomas Jefferson
