    The NSA already knows everything about us so why not have them implement a green/yellow/red flag. TSA personnel drive to work so they’ll understand what that means, and we’ll just have to suffer like we always do because we’re the American public… I’m sorry you can’t go to Canada today because of what you said on Facebook.
