OKLAHOMA CITY — An Oklahoma lawmaker is calling a piece of legislation under consideration in the U.S. Congress a “big brother, big government bill.” The Pass I.D. Act calls for standardizing driver’s licenses across the country, but State Representative Paul Wesselhoft says the bill is an invasion of privacy.

“I think it’s big brother at its worst. I know the motive behind it is to curb illegal immigration and other security issues but I think it’s a violation of our 4th Amendment,” says Rep. Wesselhoft (R-Moore).

An Absurd Bureaucracy

This was forwarded to us today.  If this letter, whether real or not, does not point out the the ridiculousness of what we allow ourselves to endure to stay safe from those “terrorists”……I don’t what does.  

 The Man has a point!!

Actual letter or not, this points up the absurd bureaucracy that has been put up in lieu of significant steps to actually protect us from terrorism.  As a diversionary tactic, it has been monumentally successful.

For diversions, how about ginning up the same-sex “marriage” issue again, just in time for another national election?

Do they really think we are that stupid?  Are we really that stupid?  Will there be an election?  Stay tuned!

An actual letter to the passport office


Dear Sir,  
I’m in the process of renewing my passport, and still cannot believe this.  How is it that Radio Shack has my address and telephone number and knows that I bought a t.v. cable from them back in 1997, and yet, the Federal Government is still asking me where I was born and on what date.
For Christ sakes, do you guys do this by hand? My birth date you have on my social security card, and it is on all the income tax forms I’ve filed for the past 30 years. It is on my health insurance card, my driver’s license, on the last eight @#$&# passports I’ve had, on all those stupid customs declaration forms I’ve had to fill out before being allowed off the planes over the last 30 years, and all those insufferable census forms that are done at election times.

Would somebody please take note, once and for all, that my mother’s name is Maryanne, my father’s name is Robert and I’d be absolutely astounded if that ever changed between now and when I die!!! !!!

I apologize, I’m really pissed off this morning. Between you and me, I’ve had enough of this bs.! You send the application to my house, then you ask me for my #$&@ing address. What is going on? You have a gang of Neanderthal #@@holes working there??? Look at my damn picture. Do I look like Bin Laden? I don’t want to dig up Yasser Arafat, for *#@* sakes. I just want to go and park my ass on a sandy beach.  

And would someone please tell me, why would you give a @#*@ whether I plan on visiting a farm in the next 15 days? If I ever got the urge to do something weird to a chicken or a goat, believe you me, I’d sure as hell not want to tell anyone!  
Well, I have to go now, ’cause I have to go to the other end of the city and get another @#*#ing copy of my birth certificate, to the tune of $60. Would it be so complicated to have all the services in the same spot to assist in the issuance of a new passport the same day??  Nooooo, that’d be too damn easy and maybe makes sense. You’d rather have us running all over the @#!@#’ place like chickens with our heads cut off, then find some @##hole to confirm that it’s really me on the @#!!#!* picture – you know, the one where we’re not allowed to smile?! (@#!%@’ morons)

Hey, you know why we can’t smile? We’re totally pissed off!  Signed – An Irate @#!*#!@ Citizen.

P.S. Remember what I said above about the picture and getting someone to confirm that it’s me? Well, my family has been in this country since 1776. I have served in the military for something over 30 years and have had security clearances up the yingyang. However, I have to get someone ‘important’ to verify who I am — you know, someone like my doctor WHO WAS BORN AND RAISED IN COMMUNIST @#!#@&@#@ CHINA !

To establish and rapidly implement regulations for State driver’s license and identification document security standards, to prevent terrorists from abusing the asylum laws of the United States, to unify terrorism-related grounds for inadmissibility and removal, and to ensure expeditious construction of the San Diego border fence. Sponsor: Rep Sensenbrenner, F. James, Jr. [WI-5] (introduced 1/26/2005)      Cosponsors (140) 

 In response:   Montana Governor Urges REAL ID Rebellion.  

In a letter (pdf) to the governors of 17 states, Montana Governor Brian Schweitzer asked them to band together to reject the REAL ID national identification system.  “Today, I am asking you to join with me in resisting the DHS coercion to comply with the provisions of REAL ID,” Gov. Schweitzer wrote. “I would like us to speak with one, unified voice and demand the Congress step in and fix this mess.”  

On January 11, Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff released the agency’s final regulations for REAL ID. The proposal has drawn sharp criticism from state governments, members of Congress, civil liberties advocates, and security experts (pdf). EPIC has called the scheme “a real danger to security and civil rights.”  

See EPIC’s National ID Cards and REAL ID Act page. (January 21)
