To the US authorities, show the US passport. To Brazilian authorities, show the Brazilian passport. When checking in with the airlines, showing both can help. When boarding, show the passport of the...

Noticing the small but all-important details. The fact that it is a woman TSO does not make it any "better" at all. Note how the woman checks around her breasts, as if she had any (sort of in a "I...

I was already watch listed in the past, for no reasonable reason (or even a conceivable reason). Lack of reason that is damaging to people such as that of the TSA must be stopped. It may be...
