Big Brother Is Watching You

I was reading in the paper this evening that the governor and legislature are working on our state driver's licenses so that they will be in compliance with the National ID set up by the Dept. of Homeland Security. The National ID plan is supposed to keep out the ubiquitous terrorist that is threatening our lives. Gee, isn't that great?! One more infringement on our civil rights by the "less government" Republicans. What's next? Infringements on our civil rights mostly affecting minority groups. Before you know it we will be required to have our ID cards with us at all times and only those with special cards will be allowed to travel out of our area. Maybe a special card to be able to vote, you know, haven't checked any Muslim books out of the library. It is getting pretty spooky out there and no one seems to care. Come on Congress, repeal the so called Patriot Act, because if you don't, 50 years from now we'll be paying reparations to all those who were wronged through the stupid thing.
