US unveils new driver's license rules

Well. if the ACLU is whining about it, it's probably a good idea. Dunno.
 
In its written objection to the law, the ACLU claims REAL ID amounts to the "first-ever national identity card system," which "would irreparably damage the fabric of American life."

How?
 
Probably because of all the doors it opens up for other things.
 
More vaguery.
How national ID card irreparably damage the fabric of my American life?

I don't know, ask the ACLU. I was just trying to theorize what they may have meant by it.

I'm opposed to it, myself.
 
Well, it doesn't solve anything, for one. It's just another form the government will require you to complete and then hand over money for. I'm not into that.
 
it starts with the complicated licensing . . . and leads to the mark of the beast . . . a microchip implant to make 'identifying' us more easily . . .
 
You act as if the ACLU needs a valid reason to complain.
If they're going to say something as drastic and melodramatic as "it will irreparably destroy the fabric of American life", yeah, I'd like to hear how it will destroy American life to a degree that we'll never recover from it.

hahaha, oh I see
 
Oh ACLU, you guys do great things, but you got to pick your battles not b***h and complain about every single thing with asinine statements that make people think that you're a bunch of left-wing liberal loonies.
 
Ah one more thing that can potentially infringe on the rights of citizens in the name of fighting terrorism. I'm sure this new id card will prevent a terrorist from putting a bomb on a train and remotely detonating it. The Bush administration is really only capable of doing two things being incompetent or corrupt. More times than not they're both. It's no wonder he's the most admired man in America.

A bit too late for that. They are loonies

i am actually ALL for that.


rest assured when i have kids, they will be low-jacked.
 
I honestly don't see anything wrong with a more secure form of identification that cannot be easily forged, other than the paranoid delusions of the current administration, which will most likely disperse in a couple of years from the general public.
the best thing about this is that it will be harder for teens to get fake id's

here in Mexico, all citizens are required, once they become 18, to register to vote and apply for their electoral card, which contains the person's information, picture and serves as a standard form of id

what's so bad about having an unforgeable, official, standardized identification card that also serves as a driver's license in all the country?

actually, since LESS control by the Government is supposed to be one of the pillars of the GOP wouldn't they be acting like left-wing CONSERVATIVE loonies?:huh:

Well, it's reminiscent of Nazi Germany, for one. Think about any WWII movie where some uniformed government official barks "Show me your papers!" And woe betide you if you can't produce them.

The US is far from that sort of control, but this new ID card program does have shades of a police state in it. :csad:
 
I'm just dreading the line at the dmv...
