The area in brown is the new free-search area of the Department of Homeland Security. The ACLU calls them a Constitution Free Zone. There has to be no reason given for stopping you or searching you in this 100 mile wide area going all the way around the nation. 2/3 of the population of the country lives in this band. The Bill of Rights is toast. The fedgov has just taken the step that will make almost two hundred million citizens at the mercy of so-called border guards. "Your papers, please."
This is cute. And there is no danger of a depresson either. Hah! When will the idiots wake up? Are they capable of waking up? Is anyone home? The DHS has interjected the Gestapo right into our lives. Hell, I didn't even know it was coming. But this is how it is done. We sit around and watch the goofy financial news and the even goofier elections and they blindside us with something like this.
Hang on to what the good God give ya! And stay alive.
