WASHINGTON - Don't be surprised if you're asked to provide your date of birth and gender when booking plane tickets later this summer.

The Transportation Security Administration has launched a new program called "Secure Flight" (Jesus, Larry and Curly who makes this shit up?) to improve security and reduce misidentification of passengers who have names similar to individuals on government watch lists.

As part of Secure Flight, airlines will ask passengers buying tickets to provide their name exactly as it appears on the government-issued identification they plan to use when traveling. Later this summer, airlines also will begin asking passengers to provide their birth dates and gender.

Because if the government doesn't know how many richards are on each flight, the terrorists have won.

The next step will be "verifying" your gender.

How about they just maintain a better situational awareness on the people on the watch list. It should be apparent when they buy a plane ticket and then you can make professional Law Enforcement watch them. All this other stupid shit, is exactly that.

I don't even know what to say about this.

The government is sooo out of control, and getting worse every day.
