Orlando International Airport announced plans for a "Known Traveler" program recently, and that could mean just about anyone willing to undergo a background check will get access to priority lines now reserved for frequent fliers and business-class travelers.
Combine Orlando with the government's "Registered Traveler" program, and airlines' own efforts to please valued customers with priority lanes, and the question is: Who will be left waiting in the regular line?
The Greater Orlando Aviation Authority is now seeking proposals from companies to develop a biometric system to identify travelers who've undergone background checks, said spokeswoman Carolyn Fennell.
"Registered Traveler", biometrics, yikes!! 3 things come to mind:
- Revelations. You know ... end of the world, mark of the beast, that kind of thing. Register your finger print or you dont fly, or shop, or eatout, or etc...
- Communism. In Russia, everybody still needs to register when traveling (Russians as well as tourists). A Communism hold over.
- Terminator. How long till these biometrics take over and decide to exterminate humans?
Ok, not so much #3; but I find this trend very disturbing. Americans are more and more "pliable" about giving up freedoms and personal information. I can see this setting the stage for a lot of what is in Revelations. Big Brother is watching ...
