What It’s Like To Get Searched By US Customs

I’ve never before had a problem coming into the US from abroad, but that changed with my recent trip to New York City. I was pulled aside for extra screening by Customs and subjected to a search that made me feel like I was being accused of a crime.

After deplaning, I was required like everyone to use an electronic kiosk where my photo was taken. I was given a receipt that I presented to the border patrol agent with my passport and customs form.

“So this is a business trip?” the guard asked.

“Yes,” I replied.

“What kind of business are you into?”

“Internet,” I said, after a two-second delay.

“Where have you been recently?”

“Poland and Ukraine.”

“Why were you there?”

“I live in Poland.”

“So what kind of business are you doing on the internet?”

If you read me, you know it’s not that easy to explain. I write books, operate a forum, run two large blogs, have a personal blog, and so on. “Lots of things,” I said.

“Okay,” he said sarcastically while rolling his eyes. He wrote something on my form.

I wondered to myself if he got sore by my answers and wrote a code which would subject me to an additional search. Sure enough, after getting my bags and going through the exit, I was pointed to the secondary screening area for further inspection.

At that time I noticed people with a passport color that wasn’t like mine going right through. I didn’t understand why I was being singled out for a search when non-citizens weren’t. Why was I being treated worse than them? Is there a new directive to screen citizens with Muslim names who have visited Eastern Europe?

I waited ten minutes and was prompted by another agent.

“So what are you doing in New York?”

“I’m appearing on a TV show.” He opened my main bag and began going through my things.

“Where do you live now?”

“I live in Poland.”

“Why?”

“You want to know why?”

“Yeah, why don’t you live in America?”

“Because it’s expensive and the women are fat.” He stopped searching and looked at me. “I’m a thin man so I can’t handle the larger sizes that American women now come in.”

“Well that’s a good reason,” he said. I didn’t pick up on any sarcasm.

“What’s your job?”

“I do internet stuff.”

“What kind of stuff?”

“Writing.”

“Fiction or non-fiction?”

“Both.”

“Like in what?” He motioned with his hand for me to keep talking.

“Books and articles.”

His search of my bags was lazy. He didn’t go through the side pockets or even individual items. Several years ago I was subject to a random drug search in Colombia and they even went through the inside of my socks. The only thing this agent’s search could have found is a huge five kilogram package wrapped in masking tape with the words “COCAINE” or “EXPLOSIVE DEVICE” written on the outside in black marker.

After his search was done, he fiddled at the computer for a while. I could only imagine what he was typing in there. “Curt demeanor, hates American women, may require anal search in future.”

“Okay sir we are done.”

I gathered my things. “So why was I selected?”

“It was your turn.”

I didn’t understand his answer. “I see people who are not citizens that aren’t subjected to this, and I didn’t break any laws. I pay my taxes every year. I don’t understand the reason.”

“It was just your turn,” he said louder. I know it’s silly to ask the interrogator if his interrogation tactics are legal, but I wanted to try anyway.

“So what if I were to refuse to answer your questions?” I asked. “I really have to tell you these private details of my life?”

“If you don’t answer, we detain you until you want to talk.”

“But I’m a citizen.”

“It doesn’t matter. You’re not in America yet.”

I’ve traveled to over 30 countries now, and even with the Colombian drug search, this was by far the worst treatment I’ve received trying to cross a border. What I don’t understand is how our government is welcoming millions of illegal aliens of dubious societal value, but is treating a citizen who has never been arrested or even charged with a crime as if he’s a criminal. There are only four reasons I could come up with for why they did this:

1. To find drugs. I don’t know how serious the drug war still is, but even if it’s high, they did a piss poor job in their search. The officer didn’t even look through my bulging laptop bag.

2. To get someone to randomly admit to breaking the law. They are doing statistical profiling to hopefully trip up a criminal mastermind into accidental admitting that he is leading an illegal organization.

3. To justify someone’s pay check. The cancer that is America’s bureaucracy is pushing needless searches because it creates positions that ensure leeches in the system continue to grow and metastasize. More personnel is needed to ask thousands of people every day why they choose to live life the way they do.

4. To instill citizen fear of authority. The government wants you to fear its power while training you in the art of submission. Through various encroachments upon your liberty on both the Federal and local level, we’re being primed to fear the government and do whatever is asked, even if it is against the spirit of the Constitution.

Americans are taught at a young age that government is “for the people, by the people,” but we can now safely conclude that this notion no longer applies (if it ever did). It is “for the elite, by the elite.” You are a replaceable gear in the machine, and so you will be treated as such. Once it’s “your turn,” you will have to make a decision of whether to submit or stand by your principles and be greatly inconvenienced or outright detained. I submitted to my master this time, but I wonder if I will be so willing to do so again.

Technically, you do not have to answer any of their questions. Once they have established that you are a US citizen, they have no right to detain you. As a US citizen, you have an absolute right to enter and reside in the country. You can simply remain silent, or repeat that “I’m a US citizen. I don’t have to answer your questions. You can prove I’m a US citizen by looking at my passport.”

Indeed, the reason that they ask you questions is to catch you in a lie. It is much easier to prove in a court of law that you “lied” to a law enforcement agent, than you did something actually wrong or illegal.

However, if you do this, they will detain you and harass you for a while. It is much easier to let them do their half-ass search, and move on with your life.

You must be very young, or haven’t been paying attention to what’s going on. Your ‘citizenship’ means almost nothing.

If it serves the government’s purpose your rights will be trampled in a heartbeat.

Technically? Let me tell you that “technically” these agents and law enforcement at large don’t give a fuck about your rights.

If you refuse to cooperate you are branded from anything from “doesn’t cooperate with authorities” to “potential threat” – and in either case be subject to more searching.

At the very minimum, they will make you sit in the search office for a long time to sweat you out – having you wonder if it was really worth being so vague as they have legal precedent hold you there as long as they want, because what the fuck are you going to do ANON, sue them?

Roosh’s point #4 is spot on – it’s a means of control. I’ve dealt with both police and THIS type of search both recently and let me tell you this search was worse. They have the precedent to treat you however they want on account of Patriot Act.

I have a friend that renounced his US citizenship and changed it for something else. When he went through the country on his new passport they detained him and questioned him for six hours about why he renounced his US citizenship. He said “Simple, because my new country doesn’t allow dual citizenship.” The TSA idiot said “Yes but the US allows you to have dual citizenship.” My friend said “I know but my new country does NOT allow that.” And on and on that circular conversation continued for hours until they finally let him go. They also found a police report from 30 or 40 years earlier when he was not even at the legal of majority yet but a landlord had reported him for stealing a TV or something. He didn’t even actually do it and he wasn’t convicted but they harassed him about this as well. My advice to travelers is just to steer clear of the US.

That’s completely not true. What, you don’t think that American citizens can’t commit acts of terrorism or espionage? I don’t know if this is the case in Roosh’s situation, but yes, these mindless guys that work in the airports do random screening. And if you don’t offer an easily digestible answer to their questions they will use that as their excuse to select you as their next “random” screen.

Even worse is being a through-and-through American citizen of Northern European extraction, with 100’s of years of family history in the U.S., and being detained by the unconstitutional roadblocks in the Southwestern states.

Staffed almost entirely by Latinos, they will detain you if you cannot prove your citizenship (but you can’t question theirs), as if you are some kind reverse illegal alien. Meanwhile, the Mestizo masses are just wadding over the Rio Grande by the thousands.

It’s just ridiculous and Orwellian to the core.

I’d like to put in a joke about how they see a white man and act out on it, to get some kind of payback for a perceived injustice, but it is far better that you had recognised that the society has become totalitarian as the ruling class like to use divide-and-conquer as it is simple and effective, as a military tactic.

I truly believe we will have an abuse society, where the tier above abuse the tier below and everyone abuses each other, thereby keeping everyone in the society in line. This is obviously, a society of insanity and madness, which is why Christian headship of the family and lack of sluttiness/single parenthood are required to come back to make for a better society.

No, the US provides about $3 Billion in military aid to Israel a year. Isreal also receive money around the world from private sources, nearly all Jewish organizations. Currently, US government aid represents less than 1% of GDP and is declining. Israel’s publicly announced plan is to continue on its very successful policy if internal economic liberalization, ramp up arm sales, strengthen its alliance with India, and its technology transfer to PRC.

A better question to ask is what is the US getting for its three very big ones a year. The answer is – quite a lot. They had, through their influence in Israel, influence on the entire military balance in the Middel East. They had a source military technology and a good testbed. The future US-Israel relationship will be very different. In co-operation with its quartet of Arab allies (Egypt, Sauid, UAE, Jordan), Israel has solved the problem of Arabs insurrection in Gaza and the West Bank.

Gaza is de facto an independent Arab state, one which will continue to reap the benefits of maintaining a state of war with Israel. The West Bank will be annexed, raising the status of Arabs there . At the risk of losing the demographic war, Israel could offe these same Arabs full citizenship, as currently enjoyed by Arabs already resident in Israel. But, no West Bank Arab could safely accept that offer. Thus, they will become permanent residents, with all the rights Israeli Arabs enjoy but without the right of political participation. Gaza will be intermittently bombed and burnt, much the way one has to weed the garden every year.

India with its large and growing manufacturing base, surrounded by hostile Islamo-fascist forces, will increase its arms trade with Israel above the One Billion it already buys. China will become the prinicipal source of VC money, getting what its culture and economy has proven incapable of providing itself – innovation. Contrary to the hopes and the plans of the current administration, Israel is stronger than it has ever been.

Similarly, documents recently and deliberately planted in the press by the current administration confirm that Israel has the knowledge and capability of producing Fusion Bombs. More likely, Israel has had this knowledge since the 1960s when Edward Teller, who designed the first fusion bomb for the US, helped them with their own nuclear program Fusion bombs are actually easy to build, once you have a fission bomb, and a little Deuterium and Tritiam. This fact requires us to increase by .by an order of magnitude, previous estimates of Israel’s nuclear weapon delivery capability. The German Dolphin missle submarines that Israel bought from Germany can fire Fusion bombs just as easily as the large yield fission toys they currently enjoy..

So, I suggest the prudent thing for the US to do is to end its involvement Over There. Israel doesn’t need the US any more, Sauid can fill in the deficit for Egypt, and we can sit back and watch the show, much as we did in the 1980s when Saddam and Mullahs went at it.

What’s in it for men?
Well, you can bet that Israel’s technical, political, and military culture will go cuntillic much later that our own. You might want to consider moving there. Fewer sluts, more marriageable women, and an army who will come for you when the Wogistinians hijack your plane.

I think reasons #3 and #4 are likely explanations.

Bureaucracy is lumbering, expensive and self-perpetuating, as any former resident of the Soviet Union can attest. And the more the government can get people to comply, the less they’ll question the manner in which their tax dollars are spent.

I had a similar experience when I alighted in Miami International after a glorious month in Medellín.

The officers were incredibly rude and treated the most innocuous things I said with exaggerated skepticism.

Officer: So, Colombia, huh?

Me: Yep.

Officer: What were you doing there?

Me: I was on vacation.

Officer: In Colombia…?

Me: Yes.

Officer: All by yourself?

Me: Yes.

Officer: What did you do there?

Me: I just told you, I was on vacation.

Officer: Why?

…and so forth, combing the same questions several times. That’s exactly what police officers do.

They try to make you nervous so you forget your alibi (if you have one) and then expose a hole in your story.

But if they’re searching my bag too (which they did), then any alibi I might have would be worth bupkis anyway so my impression was that the procedure was invasive, angering, and wholly unnecessary even if they suspected I had drugs or similar.

Fuck customs.

I had a safety deposit box at my local bank that I liked to store excess cash, documents, and a hard drive in years ago. Anyway, I had done some business in Europe and that company gave me a check that I had to cash at that bank (no longer with them). Anyway, the fat cunt at the bank behind the counter started grilling me about why I was doing business in Europe, why I had a foreign check, why did I have a safety deposit box, etc over and over again. I told her to go fuck herself and that it was none of her business. I felt like she was going to report me to some government agency or something. You just never know what list you’ll wind up on these days. Needless to say I withdrew all my money and never did business with them again.

One of the hidden blessings of being in some countries is that my bank cards are not accepted for payments at some routine destinations, such as grocery stores and corner shops.

This forces me to carry more cash than I would otherwise, and to accept new definitions of “low amounts of cash” on me. (Right now, if I’m under 700 GBP/1000 USD equivalent, I am nearly out of cash.)

There are things I’ve grown to loathe, such as “Canadian rounding”, “Swedish rounding”, and other things that steal a few pence out of my wallet every time I make a purchase.

I do, however, like “lollipop change” in some countries because I feel I actually am getting something, rather than simply screwed out of odd change …

BTW, I also greatly hate “polymer banknotes” — they’re Australian evil foisted upon the world. They’re awful because you can’t easily fold them into money belts that are actual belts.

Note to Americans: if your politicians start talking about saving money by switching to polymer banknotes, go to some trouble to un-elect them.

The problem with all these interrogations is that if you don’t comply, if you don’t tell some $8/hour fat bitch every personal question she wants to know, then you end up on some watch list. Again, we are all being watched, but I want to be on as few special lists as possible. Sites like this probably are on one, everyone is on at least a couple, but I don’t want to make things any worse for myself.

I’m probably already on a list for crossing the Mexican border by foot, because the immigration agent was typing a whole bunch of stuff into his computer after I told him why I was there (to visit this girl’s hometown, have some tacos, visit the beach, and come back). It seems they build profiles of you, putting any and all info in a database just so they can harass and intimidate you. I don’t do anything wrong, so I shouldn’t have anything to worry about, hell I barely even drink, but I am indeed fearful of their power and control.

Well when you have potential employers wanting to see your bank records to check where exactly you spent your card money at, it doesn’t surprise me.

Well, this stuff is kind of expected when visiting a giant, shitty place like NYC. I just flew through Greenville/Spartanburg airport and had the most pleasant experience since 911. First off, the airport is located inside a giant forest/park and once inside, it’s quite small. I had 2 sandwiches and before putting them through the scanner, the fat security guard casually asked “what kind of sandwiches?” I said ‘egg salad’ and he goes “Well, I may have to take a bite!” – We had a laugh. This is real human interaction, unspoiled by the robotic brainwashing the happens to most airport security personnel. They are paid shit, to work shit hours, for a lifetime at a shit job. The difference in my experience was being in a region where the fabric of human comradery is far more powerful than invading forces

I think the smaller airports will succumb soon – it’s a socialization problem that is spreading like wildfire around the world. But it has always been a problem. Namely, blind obedience to authority.

In my experience, the small ones are a pleasure (Tallahassee comes to mind), and the large ones (LAX, EWR, ORD, ATL, IAH etc.) are so heavily trafficked that if you just be normal and have a bit of patience you can expect an impersonal but reasonably efficient experience. It’s the mid-sized ones that act like they’re the last line of defense to the apocalypse. Denver stands out for me as being particularly vigilant against the threat posed by normal looking white business travelers.

This is absolutely true. The smaller airports are lax with rules and friendly / enjoyable. The larger ones are efficient and predictable (often you can tell which line to get in to avoid the body scanners–otherwise I have to tell them I want to “opt out” and get searched like a convict in prison). The middle ones are where they steal your shampoo and deodorant and enjoy the pat downs.

As for Denver, case in point:

It’s here. The ruling class know this. That’s why they release films like the ‘Matrix’ as analogies. We are the batteries being used to fund a false reality, where we are enslaved to evil. Everyone plugged into that reality is a potential enemy, even though we are all being shepherded off a cliff to our doom. Some can see this ‘red pill’ perspective, but most cannot, or would rather live the illusion, like ‘Cypher’ who is like Judas.

The only way this ends is when the society derails, most likely due to a couple of points of inflection, namely a massive economic derailment in future and another significant war.

At LAX I saw them interrogating, for the lack of a better term, an aging white grandmother in a wheelchair. Several TSA guards were around here, staring down at her. Apparently she looked like a threat. This country is a joke and so are these fat ass TSA guards on power trips. Keep us safe comrades from the senior citizen threat!

Only the bankster group had the motive and resources to pull this off – and Osama was a CIA asset who was pictured being trained by the US Brzezinski in the 70’s.

Look at the names of who owns the banks, the FED, the US senators; look how disproportionately they point to one group.

Well had you been body-cavity raped upon leaving the US you’d have your final reason to never come back. I’ve had an extra check once, not even leaving the US, just a long domestic flight, where they performed extra searches before leaving Detroit. I assume it was because I was certain I could beat the piss out of their whole team of weakling agents at the same time., and maybe they sensed that, not sure. Also, did the EEOC play a part potentially in hiring these “TSA Agents.” I think they’re all stupid, and trained to interrogate anyone who looks smarter than they are.

On my way back from Canada, I was detained, had my car searched by drug sniffing dogs, patted down by men in black gear holding guns and made to wait in a different room while they went through all my stuff.

I may have several questions regarding the official version of history, but the circumstances are exactly like the Weimer republic in 1933-1939 before World War 2 and the destruction of the german people by evil manipulators.

They won’t leave us alone, and only a few people recognise the implications of that – most people would rather be a slave to tyranny, no matter how much it hurts them and their kin.

US immigration has always been pretty cool to me, even after long trips abroad. The worst treatment I ever got was in Israel and that really wasn’t that bad, just a huge drain of my time and energy. I’m in that bottom half of the 1% that serves what you call the elite so I suppose I shouldn’t expect any problems even though my political views are pretty anti-government.

Although the federal government is granting amnesty to people who snuck into the country, Immigration treats the illegal immigrants they find like shit. In the same situation, a Mexican without a visa would have been treated far worse. Even a lot of the customs people – who used to be within a separate agency – have nothing but bad things to say about the border patrol people.

1. I’ve almost never had any serious issues with customs/immigration anywhere in the world, but guess I was just lucky enough. Have seen A LOT of people being searched/screened/interrogated for NO obvious reason at the airports or land crossings be it in America or in Europe.
2. North American/Western European society NEEDS robots, androids, slaves and puppets, it needs sheeple who’ll obey every order given by their Master or shepherd in form of the state.
3. Same applies to North American dating when females absolutely want males to become sheeple and slaves who’ll follow every order and never object anything!!
4. The state has a lot of ways to turn people into sheeple: high taxes, credits, mortgages, loans, police control, political correctness, affirmative action, quota hiring, feminism etc! Every time border service agents or custom officers conduct a search they try to “push” people” deeper and deeper into the state of hopelessness, submission and total control!
5. Western world strongly opposes ANYONE with a personality, who dares to differ from the mainstream, to stand up and be counted and to lead by example as well as to say what he really means! Such a person will immediately be labeled a loser and the enemy of the state with all the consequences of such a label!
6. I keep telling that ALL self respecting North American males should get sporty and educated, learn a trade and a foreign language, save some money and LEAVE NORTH AMERICA FOR GOOD! You’ll never regret this decision!

Roosh,same thing happened to me when I came back from Argentina into Miami. I talked about it on the forum http://www.rooshvforum.com/thread-38553.html?highlight=customs and it was slightly worse than your experience. It was hardcore racial profiling and I got mad because the majority of the people on the plane were Argentinian nationals and I the U.S. citizen of Mexican descent got pulled aside for “questioning”. I was beyond pissed. I asked him

” dude, these people are passing behind us, why aren’t you asking everybody?”

He responded angrily with “Im just one officer, do you think I can ask EVERY SINGLE PERSON WALKING BY???”

I didn’t want to argue with the guy so I just respectfully stood there answering his questions.

Officer: “How long have you been living in the country?”
Me: “um, I was born here”
Officer: “Where are you headed?”
Me: “Chicago”
Officer: “What do you do in Chicago”
Me: “School and work”
Officer: “What work?”

Me: “Work at the student center at my school”
Officer “What school do you go to?”

Me: “University of Illinois”
Officer: “What were you doing in Argentina?”

Me: “I studied abroad with a class. We went for a class”
Officer” “How long were you in Argentina?”

Me: “About two weeks”

I asked him “Do you guys just pull aside any non-looking white person for questioning?”

He replied “We have a tough job here and a drug problem in this country and we have to take every precaution necessary especially with the threat of terrorism. Just because you’re a citizen it doesn’t mean were not going to check you, you should be proud as you are contributing in helping the U.S. be safe”

I rolled my eyes, grabbed my bag and they let me go.

I have never experienced anything like that anywhere else except here in the states. It is what it is though. Sucks that you had that experience also. Trust me it feels awful especially from your own countrymen.

Thanks to your Middle Eastern brother Osama, we all have to put up with this shit. I have also been stopped many times and thought it was because of my Middle Eastern looks. It is not. It is just random. My blond, blue-eyed friends have been stopped also.

Sign up for Global Entry: http://www.cbp.gov/global-entry/how-to-apply
It is only $100 or so. I signed up after returning from a Ukraine trip. They opened my suitcase and grilled me on why I was carrying so many condoms. With Global Entry, you breeze through customs by scanning your fingerprints on a machine, so no one ever checks your bags. Well worth it if you travel internationally.

Yeah, it only happened to me once back in 2013, but that’s what the customs guy told me – they do compliance checks (audits) of every global entry passenger once in a while. What pissed me off is the entire air crew walked right past – obviously not part of their auditing requirements even though they’re global entry holders too.

He made a perfunctory check of my bag – opened it up but barely looked through – then sent me on my way. By that time though, the entire plane had already gone through immigration, got their bags, and were on their way while I waited in a room full of Habibs with third world passports. If I were really looking to smuggle something, the last thing I’d want is global entry.

LOL don’t be that paranoid. There’s a complex system of threats detection in almost every international airport.

Some time ago a CIA document was leaked in which they analized all these systems of screenings on different international airports.
In this case, I guess they either randomly got you (they constantly get random people for screenings) or because any particular thing you did (even unconsciously) or something on your apparel didn’t match their standards.

I know the way they can treat you is ethically fucked up, but what you experienced was totally normal.

Why was it normal? Because you bitch about it, but do nothing about.

I’m afraid you’re experience Roosh is becoming the norm for more and more “citizens” caught the so-called war, or is it wars… terror, drugs, poverty, etc. We’re so insecure as a nation that we have to detain citizens and violate their legal rights

If that Agent said you’re not on American soil, then he didn’t have authority under US law to detain you. The dichotomy is laughable, but also maddening.

It’s all about how much BS a person is willing to take an how long he’s willing to be detained illegally without probably cause of any crime. You could pull the lawyer card, but then you’d probably still in detained.

What your country is really telling you and anyone who travels outside the country is, “don’t come back jack.” Sounds like a jilted crazy cat lady kind of attitude. But if that’s the way they want to treat the people that feed them, then they can have this country. Makes a person want to leave for good and never come back.

It’s a good thing you didn’t have a laptop with you. In such cases, they often confiscate it for further searching, often looking for such things as child porn on the HD. (All males traveling alone are clearly pedophiles or perverts, no?)
Forensic investigators can access files you thought you delete. Deletion does not actually delete the data files; only the pointers defining them.

Some companies prohibit there employees from having any proprietary data on their traveling laptops. They have to access if from the Cloud.

Of course, if you did have a laptop and they didn’t take it, you are blessed by God…

They promise to return the laptops after searching, but many people report they never get them back. “Look, my son! Daddy found this laptop at work today. Somebody left it behind.”

One man was sentenced to a long prison stay though they found no child porn on his HD. The stupid judge (but I repeat myself) ruled that having a WIPE program on the computer could be taken as proof of child porn on the HD. I shit you not.

One time in the 90’s. My wife likes to travel, she had her own modest income in the ole’ factory, and we lived frugally enough for her to do it.

She had taken several ocean cruises with her best friend. She pressured me so finally I said, Once, if you don’t bug me again.

We flew into Vancouver to find the ship. It went north and stopped at several places, then we went into the US area. So I am assuming we crossed immigration and customs more than once in Canada. Nothing happened of note as far as I can remember, and I can remember unpleasant experiences a long ways back coming into the USA.

The thing I enjoyed best in Vancouver was watching the little float planes coming in and sitting down on the water. Like swans, slowly, slowly, then suddenly water everywhere and they were down and stopped. And, when they took off they would go racing throwing more and more water, then suddenly break free and fly away like swans again.

Vancouver may not be the most beautiful city in the world, but it is by far the most beautiful city I have ever seen. We especially liked Queen Victoria park, the most beautiful park I have ever seen, and the Asian brides who come in limousines, run into the rest room and run out in a few minutes in full bridal dress.

Once, long after I stopped air travel, I went to the airport in Amarillo to pick up a passenger. I got to chatting with the very friendly security guy. I told him how I was always harassed, and still being searched minutes after my family was though.

He told me my brand of shoes has a steel shank in them, which trips the metal detector. Dummies who don’t know this keep looking for a gun or something.

I tried to have my pockets empty of any coins, and not even have credit cards in my billfold. I would even take off my belt and put it on the belt so the buckle wouldn’t trip it But the alarm would go off anyway.

It doesn’t take much for them to put the “suspicious character” classification on you. That happened to me ten years ago in Canada, because I had the same first and middle name as some ex-con who was on the run in Alberta.

The next five years were full of secondary clearance checks, excessive questioning, rummaging through my bags, etc. Coming into the US became a royal pain in the ass.

Finally, they gave up when they realized I was a frequent flyer with no criminal record. But by the time it was done, I didn’t want to live in the US anymore.

Actually Roosh, the search system the TSA uses is out of fear. Fear of racial profiling. So instead of targeting Hispanics for drug searches, and Arabs (along with Africans and Asians from Muslim countries) for terror searches we randomly search everyone.

“It’s your turn” …

In Mexico, they have a “fair” system for this — an inspector presses a button, and if it’s green, you can go about your business. If it’s red, you get a secondary inspection, regardless of anything else.

It’s “fair” because the randomness makes it “fair”, at least according to Models of Bureaucratic Thinking.

This is actually more fair than being fucked with because you’re fifteen years older than most of the people you’re travelling with, because you’re one of about four people who booked first class accommodations, because you’re travelling “on your own”, and because you’re dressed and kitted out much closer to your actual net worth than you probably should have been …

That hassle is one reason I quit flying. Lived overseas 12 years. Fortunately, there is plenty here in the good ol US of A to keep me happy.

I have my wife I met abroad, my garden, me chickens, my dog, my firearms, the internet and a son who likes to spend my money.

I do wish things were more laid back and carefree like before the attacks on our country by terrorists.

I wish I knew what really happened. I do not believe the official stuff but all the conspiriacy theories also seem paranoid and crazy.

Guess we will never know for sure.Congressman Waelter Jones of NC said in a radio interview that he knew a lot of what really happened but could not say.

I miss the laid back friendly skies of the 1980’s and 1990’s. I just wish those fun days would come back. Plus we all had more money back then. Wall Street did not have us quite as strangled, women were nicer, we had more money and better jobs.

My biggest worry was how to show off and pretend I actuallly had money and was successful when talking to the ladies. You can get thrown in jail for rape now for impersonating somebody who has wealth when you are a loser.

In the early 1980’s, you could even sit in college classes and smoke cigarettes. And in the 1970’s, I even had a smoking area at my high school.

They probably have a quota of innocent-looking white Americans to search because searching nothing but suspicious-looking non-white foreigners would be raciss profiling or something.

Doesn’t this roosh guy rant against “liberals” and “social justice warriors”? (who, if they had it their way, racial profiling would be illegal).

LMAO! The irony is just too delicious.

When did the SocJus crew ever care about anything other than gay domestics, self-mutilators or the unhinged sexual fantasies of the jeune bougeoise?

A SJW’s sense of justice ends at the tip of hir genitals.

I know exactly why I’m not going to the US. I have even put the US explicitly in job applications as one of the few destinations I’m not willing to go to.

@Roosh: it became “your turn” because you didn’t bow to the creeps of the SPLC.

For me it’s Canada …

I’ll help anyone out who wants out of Canada permanently, but I’ll be damned if me and my assets will ever set foot back there.

Unless of course the United States decides to invade Canada in order to prevent a Russian invasion of North America — this I could justify, and perhaps I’d dislike Canada less if it had the Stars and Bars flying over it.

I’ve left Canada for good 6+ years ago and never looked back or regretted it!

I remember this Rod Blogajevich picture from the Chicago episode of Anthony Boudain’s The Layover. I watch too much TV

Roosh, is it possible you were singled out because of your ‘infamous’ reputation as a misogynist? You know the US Government does not like anybody with red pill ideals…
