You'll all be please to learn that the U.S. House of Representatives is quickly moving on legislation that will make all U.S citizens carry machine readable social security cards that include photo. In other words.. a universal ID card. How many books and movies do we need to see on the evils of Big Brother? When will we actually elect politicians that will fight moves to become this intrusive state? You can read more about the topic here.

Double plus ungood.

What's interesting to me is all the different angles that the Repubs have gone after the national(coded) ID.

We had the anti-terrorism attempt, we had the "stop the illegals from taking American jobs" attempt, we had the "stop corruption in the welfare programs" attempt; we had the national standards on state drivers licenses attempt.

And this doesn't indicate RFID, which would allow literally networked tracking as an individual passes through hidden scanners, but some of the other efforts have.



BTW, if you care, I dropped a link to you on my blog.
