Here's my suggestion to you:
Next time you come back to the US from a foreign country and need to make a flight connection at the port of entry....try to fly through the Miami airport.
Very often at MIA you can just grab your bags and head out without having to talk with a Customs agent nor give him the required declaration. Very often the only person you need to talk to is the immigration officer.
You can thank Harrison Ford for the tyranny, loss of freedom and abuse of power of the Obama administration of the past 8 years since he contributed $30,000+ to Obama's campaign.
