Don’t Visit America

It’s too dangerous here.  Do something silly wrong, and homeland security might detain you for a few days, denying you sleep and food.  (Via Matthew Yglesias, who describes his experiences visiting a sane place).

This is the sort of abuse that only happens under a democracy or a totalitarian regime.  A regular authoritarian government is not so stupid, but in a democracy the people who put this policy in place will be lauded for fighting terrorism.  That the United States will eventually become a worldwide pariah is none of their concern.
