The US Is Fast Becoming a Third World Police State by Jeff Burwick As a P.T. (often referred to as perpetual traveler, permanent tourist or prior taxpayer), I have traveled to nearly 100 countries. During those travels there has always been one defining moment, upon entry into a country, which shows that the country is what is generally thought of as a "third world country". It is the moment when, upon arrival, you are charged a fee to enter the country. They have this in Cambodia, Indonesia, Bolivia and numerous other similar countries. The US has long-used "visa application fees" to bilk money from people in countries like Thailand as a way to raise money but now the US has announced that they are going to charge a $5.50 fee to Canadians upon entering the US. The fee is ludicrous and counterproductive for many reasons. Not to mention the hilarity of calling it an "inspection fee".
