  •  Which makes the whole thing that much (14+ / 0-)

    more of a farce.  We'll send you checks monthly with an online application, but you can't drive unless you bring forty pounds of documents and a witness to swear that you exist!  Even though we've let you drive for 40+ years already - and you have a good driving record - and no arrests - and no other offenses - even still - you need to be scrutinized and punished now because we are stupid and feel like wasting everyone's time and money.  ;)

      I think there's a bonus in it for the first office to hand me a traffic ticket.

      Yeah, this is BS.

      Maybe they need to "prove" that they're the government before they can withhold my state and federal income tax, FICA and Medicare.  I would have an extensive requirement for documentation, too.

      There already is class warfare in America. Unfortunately, the rich are winning.

      •  LOL - and that's the thing. (6+ / 0-)

        I know one of the people who was involved in writing a lot of these laws - this person is half off their rocker and totally impractical - this person hasn't a clue.  This stupidity is what happens when people operate from a position of fear rather than strength when they are trying to solve problems.  As much as it is true that there is gross manipulation of the population involved here, the person I know proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that many of the people involved in creating these ridiculous laws were pawns with sufficient fears and fancy degrees so as to make this craziness seem legitimate, but it still is not.
