Yup, the new republican majority is protecting your rights. Good and hard.

From Cato:
On Monday, House Judiciary Committee Chairman Lamar Smith (R-Texas), Homeland Security Committee Chairman Peter King (R-N.Y.) and Crime, Terrorism, and Homeland Security Subcommittee Chairman James Sensenbrenner (R-Wisc.) sent a letter to Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano encouraging her to fully implement our national ID law, the REAL ID Act of 2005.

This is change I can believe in all right. You on the left, make'em afraid of the gun-toting whackos. We on the right will keep'em afraid of the terrists and the Brown Menace. The ones who don't crawl to you for protection will crawl to us. Doesn't matter which direction they crawl, as long as they crawl.

Left wing - right wing. Same stinking carrion bird in between.

The government hydra exposed in action. I read somewhere once that they strive to keep us in a constant state of slight alarm, in order to get away with what they get away with. Sadly, it seems to be working. I wonder when the nekkid body scanners will make their appearance on a street corner. I wonder when DNA samples will be collected by the DMV. I wonder when Nazi checkpoints will become the norm (nevermind, they already are).

We the sheeple have given our Liberty over to a bunch of criminal thugs, and now we reap the "rewards". Got room for another "lair" next to yours?It's getting to the point that those of us who hold Liberty above all else will be forced into hiding...

That is the same analogy I have used for several years now. Only I use the name of an actual carrion eating bird. Vulture. I expect their attorney to contact me any day now for defamation and slander.

Maybe I should adopt the "stinking carrion bird" label as well. Have you gotten a copyright on it yet ?

Stay Safe,


captcha = devil I can relate to that ....

I seem to recall that the reason why the REAL ID act was not implemented was because the State legislatures were going to be required to pay for the program. That pretty much made the whole program an unfunded program, so since 2005 it hasn't been anything important. So, is Napolitano going to invade each state legislature and force them at gun point to pay for the program? Or is the cost of the REAL ID act going to come out of her budget?

Typical: politicians don't understand why we aren't in government-mandated paradise.

I won't accept a national ID, and gov't forcing it on me would give me further reason to lose my drivers license and all other forms of ID and drop off the grid.
