    Great, wonderful, it's money for the soldiers in Iraq, Afghanistan and the Tsunami victims.

    Look closer.

    Closer.

    Closer.

    Keep looking till you find the Real ID act. Yeah. So, we've got a national ID that without which we cannot fly, ride on trains, etc. This sounds a lot like the USSR's famous "Papers please" fun n games back in the day.

    But look even closer.

    Keep going.

    "No court shall have jurisdiction to hear any cause or claim arising from any action undertaken, or any decision made, by the Secretary of Homeland Security, or order compensatory, declaratory, injunctive, equitable, or any other relief for damage alleged to arise from any such action or decision."

    Do any of you 'Cons know what that means?!

    I do, kind of like when you going the service you can't sue them for fucking shit up, but your wife can ;)

    But on a grander scale, yes, basically they can supersede due process, and you'll have no recourse for action if you become the victim of their spoils.

    As far as most conservatives go anymore, the constitution is nothing more than a doormat for these people.

    Oh yeah, that'll be you when you find out how easy it will be for people in power to overstep due process and basically do anything they want.

    Homeland security decides to lock you up for... well... anything and guess what, there's nothing that can be done for it. You don't get a trial, you don't get out. False arrest? Tough shit buddy, there is no due process for you.

    They no longer have to say the T word to get their way now, they can just do it.

    The truly beautiful part of it is that when neocons tack on riders to bills, they can smear anyone that doesn't vote in favor of the bill. "You don't support the troops!" they'll scream and the people will fall in line.

    If you aren't worried about this, then there is something seriously wrong with you.

    Real ID was a product of the 92-00 administration's Democratic-majority Congress.

    Don't go blaming this shit on our current administration. The Real ID act and others like it have come and gone. They will continue to do so. Remember Social Security numbers ? Top technology of the day, and you can't travel without it either. Even Adolf Hitler criticized the SSN program as something that he wouldn't do, because it's too dictive.

    God will you people stop spoonfeeding reality in these little news clips and Aggregators. Pick up a goddam book or two and get some background before turning into Chicken Little. The National ID program won't work, and it's reason for not working is even more frightening than the glimpse that you see here:

    It won't be passed because the Government isn't able to decode it's required encryption.

    That scares me more than that. Because one day, they'll find the decoding methods necessary and finally pass it. furthermore, I hope I'll be around to watch people line up behind the fences for their trickled down freedom vouchers and all bad mouth Conservatives for making it happen.

    Lame.

    Once again, this was a RIDER to the bill to send money to the soldiers and tsunami victims. What do you think will happen if a democrat or moderate conservative were to vote against a bill that supports tsunami victims and our troops?

    Neat lil trick, aint it?

    And you don't think we have the ability to decrypt it? Shit dude, :lol: you haven't been on the wrong side, otherwise you wouldn't even think that.

    Remember, conservatives are against big government. I agree that conservatives aren't behind this. *NEOCONS ARE*. There is a big difference between your garden variety conservative and a neocon. Why do you think a lot of republicans are starting to shy away from the Bush admin? They're as worried as we liberals are.

    Holy crap, this was the first time EV4R that anyone tried to put a non-related rider onto a bill! Behead the Republicans because they tried this new tactic! :roll:

    Christ. Chicken Little is too nice a description, Steve.
