Why Soviet-USSA - this is rather fascist style
This reminds me much more of fascist propaganda. I am confident to have seen a similar cliche dating from Nazi rule. Human rights and privacy have come under the sledgehammer in the US.

The funny thing is, while such programs look and feel fascist, in general the new airport security is decidedly anti-fascist, to the point of being merely a feel-good exercise in risk management. They don't profile based on any PC minority traits, so a young arab man gets the same probability of a thorough check as an elderly lady or a pregnant woman with toddlers. If a business treated a suspiciously nervous young man who happened to be muslim, there would be a potential lawsuit, and I bet most companies would think twice. I suppose the new fascism will not to adversely impact any grouping based on age, gender, race, creed, or sexual orientation.

Uh, you may be right (I don't have statistics), but that's not what I see at airports. True, occasional elderly ladies get thorough checks, but it seems to me that essentially all arab-looking men do. I have an arab-looking friend who says he gets the pat-down every time.

I always tell the people that they should'nt get a false impression of me just because I have a swastika tattoed on my forehead.

know that the preflash should serve as a red-eye-reduction-tool... *turns red*. One day I will learn how to remove red-eyes with photoshop. There are lots of tutorials on the web but none of them suggests certain colour settings. My edited eyes always look so "plastic".
