I'm all for bilateral symmetry
Sure, sign away, on one condition: methods and restrictions must be identical on both sides of the fence, to wit:
- unexpected and random searches of electronic equipment, including but not limited to copying information to aid EU industrial espionage and removal of equipment for multiple days to months and erasure of log files where it can be assured it will hide evidence of malice or where it's simply causing the most trouble. Lock up those who don't give their password, and assume that everyone with Truecrypt installed is not telling you the REAL password you need.
- full biometrics from 10 fingers to full endoscopy (not neccesarily in that order) of every US passport carrying person. I know this is a bit overkill, but let's get ahead for a change and every one to bend over. It beats removing shoes for hassle (and smell).
- calling everyone from the US alien. It's sometimes just a matter of detail.
- detailed investigations of anyone who looks even remotely suspicious. That includes people that still look fresh after a 14h flight, everyone else will look like a criminal on the database so let's level the playing field there - they're also first out of the plane so it's a good idea to sideline them immediately.
- define regulations that maximise the queue in front of the "US passports only" line. If there are less than 50 people waiting and only one machine is left operational, tea and/or shopping breaks are compulsory. Tea breaks must be in full sight of those waiting. For those returning to the US, delays must be timed that flights are missed by mere seconds. Gates must close if any of them escape early.
- last but not least, ensure that only parking guards are employed. Only they are able to evoke the same kind of feeling that a visitor to the US feels when treated like some kind of dumb animal.
Did I mention I have recently decided not to travel there anymore?
Mine's the one with the chains and skull..
