    It may not be the intentions of the powers that be, but it opens the door for some other asshole down the line to do that very thing.

    Yeah, that secure ashtray is a great place to store your ID. No wonder identity theft is the problem it is.

    Of course, but my objections should not be discarded because others think I need to have it the way they want it.

    We are supposed to share this place, not have one strong arm the other into compliance, especially when the little guy isn't doing anything wrong.

    It's closed and my doors are locked.

    The chance of me losing a wallet is higher than someone breaking into my car.

    It's not about you.

    Re: Obama & Co. Want National Biometric ID

    Out here we're required to carry an ID at all times. It's a petty offense if you don't have one, but it's enough to let a cop take you in if he suspects something else is going on.

    Also, if you ever have to show your ID, chances are the cop isn't going to wait 60 days for it to be issued to you. In fact, when you need to have an ID you probably have about 30 seconds to present it.

    It effects me, I have a say, or at least I'm supposed to, and I shouldn't have to comply with something arbitrary when I don't do anything wrong.

    Wow, that's pretty freaking stupid if you ask me.
