    Obama & Co. Want National Biometric ID

    “Our plan has four pillars: requiring biometric Social Security cards to ensure that illegal workers cannot get jobs; fulfilling and strengthening our commitments on border security and interior enforcement; creating a process for admitting temporary workers; and implementing a tough but fair path to legalization for those already here,” wrote Graham and Schumer. “We would require all U.S. citizens and legal immigrants who want jobs to obtain a high-tech, fraud-proof Social Security card.”

    The national ID cards would include a "unique biometric identifier," according to Graham and Schumer. Some of the likely candidates include finger prints, retinal scans, or even the layout of a person’s veins in the top of their hand. Employers who refuse to "swipe the card" would face "stiff fines" and "prison sentences," the Senators noted. “Our blueprint also creates a rational system for admitting lower-skilled workers,” they added.
    Oh yea, nothing fascist about this. All in the name of security and other fascist bull****.

    They tried it under Bush, but at least Bush had the common sense to back off. I don't think Obama will. Looks like Orwell's prediction is finally arriving, albeit 26 years late.

    Personally, I have no problem with this. The Social Security cards are out-of-date and can easily be forged. It's a point of verification, not a method to "track" your every movement. Once the national ID cards carry GPS transmitters, then we can start worrying about Big Brother....

    They are going to try to slip this in with the new immigration amnesty bill.

    The second worst part of it is the guest worker program, that is why the Republicans are supporting it.
    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.

    You see, Obama's a pragmatist (cough cough), and very realistic. He knows that in order to control a population, you must know where they are at all times. If you just let them run around all higgledy-piggledy all the time and do whatever they want, it's just chaos.
    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Oh my god! A card that is yours that proves its yours. Next they'll want to put our names on SS cards!



    You want to stop illegal immigrants from taking our jobs? This is what that looks like.

    God damned it, this is just what Bush tried to pull.

    Is there anyone still left around who thinks that Obama is different than Bush?

    I don't understand what the problem is with an ID card that can't be forged. It's not like the card announces your position or tracks what you purchase.
