    This is what happens when unfunded mandates are handed down.

    Administration Plans to Scale Back Real ID Law
    Yielding to a rebellion by states that refused to pay for it, the Obama administration is moving to scale back a federal law passed after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks that was designed to tighten security requirements for driver's licenses, Homeland Security Department and congressional officials...

    You just go against anything they do without considering it, huh?

    The reality is, it won't stop anything. Safety is never 100% protection ... and ID's are just too damned easy to forge no matter what system. I will not however pay to give the government more control or responsibility for my life, if you like having the government in complete control of everything, sign up, otherwise leave the rest of us alone.

    I repeat,, it's almost as if they want us to be attacked again innit.. and don't hand me the same sad story that because "some mistakes may be made" it's not worth trying to ID people.that's bullshit. we have a right to know who is in this country and why,, if that's too much for you to handle then move on out. . no nothing is 100% to to sit around and do "nothing" cause it isn't 100% is bullshit too.. so again,, it's almost as if you wish it to happen again...

    Really ... you are just in the "blame other people" crowd ... I like that new phrase, going to use it a lot for a while. It's not what people "want" done that's the problem, it's that people don't look at what "can" be done without sacrificing the things that make this country great, freedoms and liberties for one, financial stability for another. Even putting aside the few freedoms you may sacrifice, price is a huge issue, would you be willing to pay an extra 5% in taxes just to change a 1% chance of something happening to a .99% chance?

    bullshit.. I'm into not scaling back the ID.. for national security.. and yep,, why not blame the ones who want to scale it back?? it's their watch innit? they are the ones I will blame if we are attacked again,, who would you blame? you have to have an ID to board an airplane, to get married, to get unmarried, to cash a check,, to get a drivers license,, you are an idiot, there is no society on this earth that does not require an ID.. unless you live out in the bush in deepest darkest Africa,, you may escape it there.

    slow down willow, This Id act which has started in my state is so they can scan you going through the border.

    Do you think they would hesitate to scan you at a tea party to see which of you is in attendance?

    Good.

    Now, it's time to scale back the idiotic passport requirements in order to visit Canada, Mexico, and the Caribbean.

    I've completely had my fill of Operation Bedwetter.
