    So they thought everyone would be okay with some being "more equal" than others?

    I always appreciated being more equal than others. :D

    However, I would hope that the days of the priority lines are coming to an end. The more people who are inconvenienced by TSA, the better.

    Since you haven't flown in what...two years or so, you haven't seen the changes at MSP. There's more priority lines than ever and I take advantage as much as possible. My last three trips were almost like the "good old days" no shoe removal, kept my jacket on, laptop in carry on and WTMD. From start to finish my guess is 15 seconds max.

    My take on pre-check is this is how security is suppose to be. Selfishly, this works for me.

    It's worked so far. As you know, it's no guarantee.

    I fully agree with taking what you can get & looking out for No. 1. :D

    But there are other principles at play, e.g. "equality under the law". Eventually these elite lines are going to grind to a halt.

    I view it entirely different. The way I'm treated in pre-check lanes is the way we're ALL supposed to be treated, so for now I think it's a step in the right direction. Two years ago, none of this was happening...

    Precheck is nothing but divide and conquer --privileges for some to shut them up while everyone else is screwed.

    I can't fault anyone for taking the best that is offered to him or her, but you're really falling for Pissy's warped game if you buy into Precheck.

    Once the number of people paying for PreCheck reaches a critical mass, they'll all be subjected to the regular gropings and scans until they pony up for SuperPreCheck.

    ...and once SuperPreCheck reaches a critical mass, it'll happen again until people pony up for UltraPreCheck.

    Lather, rinse, repeat.

    So how did you get into PerV? Was this through GE or were you contacted? I'm curious how this program is operated. It always helps to study one's opponent and this is an area where I have little data.

    GE gave me an automatic pass, unbeknown to me... SkyPriority lane at MSP has smurf pre-checking ID's then opening a magic door into PerV.
