    We can't all be as perfect as you are, Joe. We try... enlighten us please. Grace us with your profound wisdom. Someone with it all figured out has, in my opinion, a civic duty to pass of such knowledge to the rest us.

    I just find it amusing that people who normally advocate for small government throw all that out the window when it comes to certain issues - like immigration and religion.

    Re: The case for a national ID card

    An effective solution would be to issue tamper-proof, biometric ID cards — using fingerprints or a comparably unique identifier — to all citizens and legal residents. Last week, both President Obama and a bipartisan group of eight senators seeking immigration reform urged something along those lines, without calling it a universal national identity card. That’s a major step forward.

    Since when is ANYTHING tamper proof? All it would take is a talented hacker working with a forger to go into the database and replace your biometric data with that of someone else and create a new ID.... Would it be as easy as making a fake DL, BC, and SSC? Probably not but tamper proof? No such thing.

    Are you presuming to know that I advocate small government? You have probably deduced my stand on illegal immigration, but you have no idea what my thoughts on religion are. Or was that just an "in general" statement?

    Thanks, Joe. Does not really answer my question, however.

    Has he ever answered a question? Seems that every response is just another accusation or a "so what your saying is..." statement. Never an answer. He's just like a politician.

    You can believe whatever bullshit you want, so long as you're not infringing on the rights and well being of your fellow human beings.
