    Time to storm the Bastille D.C.

    If you think health care reform is ugly, just wait until Congress tries immigration reform again.

    The Senate has begun work on an immigration bill and at the center of this new plan is a controversial requirement for all American workers to get identification cards… Under the plan – all legal workers, including citizens and immigrants, would have to get an ID card that includes biometric information like fingerprints.

    There is no way in hell that I am giving the gov’t my fingerprints or any other biometric data. The new passports have an RFID chip in them with a digitized passport photo. The day I got mine it somehow got dropped into a microwave oven which accidentally was programmed for 30 seconds on “high.” Who knew that RFID chips and microwaves didn’t play well together?

    I absolutely will not voluntarily participate. The only way the gov’t gets my fingerprints is if they arrest me.

    My brain is being foggy at the moment, but when we got Cal. drivers’ licenses in the mid 90s I think they took finger prints as part of it.

    Good to know. I’ll put CA on my list of states to never move to.

    And I’ll bet the sponsor of the bill has a financial interest in some company that stands to profit big time from the surge in fingerprint reader sales after this becomes law.
