It's kind of funny though when it happens to someone who deserves it. I know a guy who won a cruise departing from New York. He booked a flight from Calgary but when he checked in at the Delta desk at YYC they refused to let him board the plane. His drug-arrest record, among a myriad of other ridiculous charges than no one over the age of 18 should be proud to have, has him pretty much barred from ever entering the United States again. And this guy isn't some harmless pothead but is really a genuinely malicious, bratty, stupid, and incredibly arrogant fucker who just plain refuses to grow up. Uncle Sam basically said they weren't going to put up with any of his shit on their side of the border so jerky is really just SOL on the whole thing. I've seen first hand on how moronic this guy typically behaved on enough camping trips, including once almost getting all of us arrested at the Idaho border after he mouthed off at one of the guards, so I could only imagine what he would be doing on a cruise ship or at a resort. Be a fucking horror show. :roll:

It sucks for the guy in the article where it affected his career. For everyone barred who really shouldn't be though there's probably a dozen that really deserve it. It's the way crime goes. For everyone that should be cut a break there's a lot more who really shouldn't, kind of like if you listened to enough of the sob stories coming out of con college you might actually begin to think that they're all innocent. Reality says otherwise though.

Sucks, but that's life with the Yanks.
They don't always play fair.

NO, but sometimes things have a way of backfiring on them. Like their stupid law forcing Canadian banks to hand over financial information of those who are US citizens living in Canada. As a result, some 16,000 American dual-citizens have applied to renounce their US citizenship. That's just Canada, who knows how many have applied world-wide.

And they will each pay around $2500 for the pleasure.

Obama raised the rates just before implementing all the BS.
Used to be less than $500.

Not to mention the 5 - 10 billion they get by making everyone possible file....

Americans can't get accounts in Switzerland if they aren't working there, they
just won't open an account.
I've heard even Canadians are having problems with it now.

Not all of them. Russia has made clear that once they give someone citizenship then any prior claims on that person by another country are void.

Canada is a sovereign nation and can do the same thing if your leaders have the nerve to do it.

" When he was 19 — a whopping 29 years ago — he was arrested with a small amount of “crappy hash oil”"

An adult, yet everyone makes it sound as though he was 14.

So who is it that keep sending records of attempted suicides, mental illness, non-criminal convictions and other presumably private information to the US intelligence and security services? Santa Clause?

And you calling me a 'nut bag' is rich. lol




Hmmm, you think letting suicidal people on an airliner is a good thing? 8O :P

Yes. Suicidal thought is a temporary condition. One doesn't book a flight to attempt suicide some time in the future. One goes under the sink and gets the Drano, and pours shooters right now.

You think every private medical detail of every citizen needs to be sent to 4 foreign governments to keep them safe from people who attempted suicide some time in the past? Does this strategy seem like a legitimate security plan? Perhaps someone might board a plane and attempt depression too. :roll:
