Is there a Part II or something? These folks are paying you to bumble through a "speech" like that? If you are getting more than coffee money, Doug, you are making out like a bandit.

Loved the writer, can't say much for the speaker. I've just gotta agree with the above comment wholeheartedly. In 30 seconds, Mr. Casey has yanked my level of confidence in any doomer/preper writer right out from under my freaked out prepping tush. If thats the caliber of person thats writing the words that convince me that we need to drop everything and listen to him, I'm gunna have to rethink it. Cause maybe I'd rather just go down with the stupid, ignorant, and genuinely enjoyable sheeple, rather than live in post collapse hell with this horses ass. Wait, I mean't to say horses ASS.

Come on everybody, he's just recounting an experience at the airport. He's not selling you anything. But next time you are stuck in line with some airport official who thinks he is St Peter, then you might think differently.

This fellow is obviously used to audiences that do not have to have the significance of ever datum spelled out. I write and am able to form a mental picture of a character or society for a reader by building up a sum of little parts. Like a Hitchcock film, letting the reader's imagination fill in the action off camera is more effective - assuming they have an imagination. You can't do that for an audience that expects an adventure to be biff-bam action and sex to be sweaty and heaving. Do you really need him to wrap up that story by saying he found it stupid and unpleasant?

The new millenium has brought out the crazies. Customs and immigration have always been a pain; has been for over 30 years. Nothing to see here, move along. Have to agree with the other poster, Doug, get over yourself.
