    Hi,

    Recently we were told that the goverment is working on a national identification card. Govt. Staff is already gearing up to have finger printing and extensive background checks conducted. How far will this go and what will it mean for the average citizen?

    Naughty,

    I started a thread in May called "Homeland Security Card" in this section that deals with this very card you are referring to. There was a lot of comment on it at the time. However, I don't know if the two subjects you have asked were dealt with extensively enough at the time: That is "how far this will go" and "what it will mean for the average citizen." Yes, both questions were dealt with, but the vocal point that time around was outrage at such a situation.

    There may be new information around, but to all interested in this, do check that thread out first. It might save you some time as some specifics of a security card were dealt with at the time.

    Hope some new specifics will come to life on this resurrected thread.

    Axex,

    I just think this is result of the post 911 world we live in, a way for some to curb illegal immigration,use the new tchnologies available. But I am concerented about what will be its effect on over all personal privacy or freedom. Will that totally be a thing of the past.They are even saying this card may track where employees are at any point in the day,how long they use the rest room or stay at lunch. One only knows how it will effect health records or computer use at work and at home as well as video choices and library books. It took 21 years, but 1984 is upon us.

    Freddie,

    Thanks. I did see the thread on Homeland security. I suppose it really hit me when we were nformed that we would be fingerprinted and be given an extensive background check in order to receive our next ID.I guess for me that is where the rubber meets the road.

    I don't think it will change anything at all, except allowing a few more members of Congress to claim they did something to "improve security," which it won't.

    Hi there,

    I'm not overly worried by this, since it doesn't mean a significant change of status quo. Many other countries use ID cards seperate from drivers licence, and the data presented on those contain things like DoB, Birth town, sex, eye color, height and other personal features that can not be altered (without much effort). So if this ID should become a compulsory asset, I think it won't be violating privacy, since it doesn't contain any highly personal data. Okay ladies might be bothered that their true age might be revealed...

    Prior to moving to the penisula, I lived in Georgia, where we were required to get fingerprinted in order to receive our driver's license. I hated it, but had no alternative but to submit.

    Brucester, it may not seem like a big deal yet, but that's how they'll do it. Little by little they will continue to make little laws that will take away our freedoms. Right now it seems mildly intrusive, but give them an inch (or a fingerprint) and they'll take a mile (insert whatever you want to here).

    Since "Ways of righteousness" is plural, does that mean a plural number of guys engaging in "righteousness"? Sounds like a new flesh pile developing to me. This one in honor of Axxex. I do love initiation parties.

    Well, that's ONE mood and tense.

    Actually, I got that from South Park. The whole "Officer Barbrady can't read" episode.

    You should see Lakota grammar. Did you know an aspirate is all separating the reflexive and reciprocal moods?
