Default Federal ID plan raises privacy concerns

http://www.cnn.com/2007/POLITICS/08/....id/index.html

ahh don't you love the smell of money being wasted...but it's ok as long as it is a 'conservative' wasting it...

Way to twist the information.

Maybe you should go back and read the article because it seems you missed the part where they said "Citizens in states that don't comply with the new rules will have to use passports for federal purposes."

If your state does, then no problem. I didn't see a mention on what the status of Michigan was.

However, although I agree with this:

Quote:
there are presently 8,000 types of identification accepted to enter the United States. "It is simply unreasonable to expect our border inspectors to be able to detect forgeries on documents that range from baptismal certificates from small towns in Texas to cards that purport to reflect citizenship privileges in a province somewhere in Canada,"
I don't know what having one standardized ID fir citizens of the U.S. will change what non-citizens have to show.

I think it's not bad to have one driver's license for the whole country. Most countries are like that anyway. We are spoiled because we can drive vast distances and not worry about anything. I can remember being in Europe and having to show my papers several times as we went from country to country to country in the same day.

typical liberal media rambling. I've been in half a dozen national parks, monuments, and forests in the past month and nowhere did I have to produce an ID card to enter, and I have yet to see a law that would change that.

As far as I can tell the bit about needing a passport to "picnic in a national park" seems to be an invention of the liberal press, and the bit about needing a "passport the next time you want to get into a national forest" seems to be a figment of your imagination.

Yeah, it sucks that they've passed a law that will cost the states lots of money, and I wish they would discuss it with the states to come up with a workable system, but I don't see it as "big brother is coming"

I use my Federal ID as my primary form of identification wherever I go. It suspersedes anything issued by the state. Unless you're a cop pulling me over, you don't need to even know whether I'm allowed to drive.

I don't know WTF they're bitching about with the bar codes and auto-ID shit. Licenses in various states have had them for years and I've personally used both magnetic and bar code scanners at the doors of bars. Its very effective, although the cops wanted to know where I got the equipment.
