    Biometrics are fingerprints and photos. Immigrants already have biometric IDs. Not a big deal.

    So, immigrants are forced to have it, makes it ok for full citizens to have it too? Love that logic.

    Remember, give this administration an inch, they'll go for many miles.

    Nationalism in high dosages may be hazardous to your health. Please consult a psychiatrist before beginning a regular regimen, and if feelings of elitism and douchbaggery continue, discontinue immediately before you become unable to do so on your own.

    You have been fined one credit for violation of the verbal morality standard.

    Um, yeah. Thanks but no thanks on the in-body surveillance.
    I love that movie

    Everyone already needs an ID. Might as well make them better.
    National IDs are a great Idea.
    This administration? It's an idea thats time has come. It might make some ilegals think twice about coming here.

    Re: Obama & Co. Want National Biometric ID

    How many states have refused to go along with the REAL ID act, already a law ?

    How many times did the Federal government have to blink and extend the deadline for compliance ?

    Same thing will happen this time.

    A lousy idea is a lousy idea , no matter which Party is pushing it.
    On to the next windmill

    If someone dupes your biometric card and does something bad with it, you can't change any of your biometrics.
    You're stuck with the possibility of being screwed over again.

    If they install RFID, I can steal all your personal information without taking it out of your pocket.
