    I think it's bull**** for other people, though.
    I agree completely. I'm in a profession which requires fingerprinting in my state. And each year the list of professions requiring fingerprinting for the public safety grows.

    I haven't ever gotten my concealed weapons permit because of the fingerprint issue.

    I'm not comfortable at all with giving it to a federal agency.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    I've never understood this - what are you worried about?

    I've always had a paranoia thing with biometric information.

    If someone figures out how to dupe it and uses my info then I can't change my fingerprints.

    The governments history of records keeping is sketchy at best.

    Can you change your social security number, birth date, or mother's maiden name?

    I could change my SSN, but why go through the trouble of allowing it in the first place?

    My birth date and my mothers maiden name I could change but it wouldn't be true. Prevention is certainly better than the cure IMO.

    It seems ludicrous to to do this considering a finger print is not going to stop fraud.Its like banning or severely restricting firearms of law abiding citizens under the guise that people who already do not obey the law in the first place will somehow be affected. Hopefully someone challenges this in court a judge rules it unconstitutional.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    If you are that paranoid you can always burn off your fingerprints. An iron will probably do.

    I not only have my fingerprints on file but also all of each finger's prints (not just the tips) and partial palms. That's what I get for working for the gov't.
    If you believe in the Supernatural then you can become a millionaire!

    Questioning or criticizing another's core beliefs is inadvertently perceived as offensive and rude.

    Wait...what happened to the "if you're not doing anything wrong..." excuse I used to hear? I agree this is ludicrous, but nothing I wouldn't expect out of that commie hell hole known as Chicago. Just a great city, such a treasonous government.
