Thank you for the link. I would like to apply for one of these pre check things myself. i wonder if airlines compensate for increased TSA efficiency through pre check with reduced airline personnel at those airports, effectively making it all slow for everyone again.News article about TSA's pre-check and how it's current failure is supposedly the consumer's fault:
"W" did some questionable things while in office but I can't imagine that he had the power to keep people out of Canada - - that would be entirely up to the Canadians. What you may be referring to was that during his administration, and after 9/11/2001, the sharing of information between the FBI and its Canadian counterpart was stepped up, which had the result of stopping people with convictions for certain crimes at the border, by Canadian Immigration authorities.Precheck and Global Entry sadly fails to include all people.
"...In those days, and up until about 2004 or so when Bush made up some laws about people with past offenses no longer being able to get into Canada (I dont know the specifics of this but it did effect a lot of people), when such a case was over it was over. And society encouraged people to forget and move on...."
Absolutely not. Our clients will work half a day when they are flying to make sure they don't have to worry.3hrs can work... if you work for yourself and can do so from a phone or tablet. It fails to work if you have to be at your office or if you have a family with little kids and dont really love being in a bloated shopping mall with security everywhere spending time and money on stuff you wish they did not want. If the airports had a kids amusement park inside, we would get there 5 hrs in advance but they do not and cannot, so it is very painful to miss work and go crazy. Solution: work for yourself, have a big wallet and do not have kids, right?
Can you explain why do we have to pay for that all. Isn't it a function of government to organize the society and run the necessary checks for which they already collect general taxes.I normally scoff at stuff like Pre-Check, mostly because I don't believe it will ever work right. But United gave me Pre-Check for a couple of years and I couldn't WAIT to sign up when TSA started phasing out the airline involvement. The freedom from the shoes, the laptop, the BS ... I'd pay $85 a YEAR for it.
