"You're ID, Please." -- Required at a County Dump Site

Yes. It actually happened.

I was with my family on a short vacation in Florida. We had accumulated some garbage in one large bag. So I took a trip to the county dump. (We call them "convenience centers" where I live.)

The lady working there noticed that I wasn't from "around" there. She came out to see who dared to throw a bag of trash in the bin.

She asked me for ID.

I said, "You've got to be kidding."

She wasn't. Apparently there was a problem with people from other counties throwing there trash away there.

Thank goodness I passed muster and was "allowed" to throw away my trash--at a DUMP.

It's getting to be crazy out there.

If we have to show ID in order to throw away our trash, you can bet that society will ask for ID for just about anything.

We have survived as a society without this ID obsession for many years. We don't need to lose our minds (or our freedom) now.

This is just sheer lunacy.

Dude... soon you will need ID to cross the street, pick your nose in your car, or yawn in public. I hate this. You know what? The only people who love this and want this are the government contractors who are basically telling us "you'll take our government crap and like it because that is how we make large piles of cash". Halliburton is a glowing example of someone we need to "cut off" the public cheddar. Welcome to The People's Republic of Bush.

Although I am really disappointed with President Bush in a several key areas, I do not despise him. I firmly believe that the governmental impulse that lies behind REAL ID is represented in both parties.

What dismays me is that so many fellow "conservatives" love expanding the presence and power of the federal government in our every day lives.

I'm glad you stopped by the blog because REAL ID (and similar legislation and proposals) is something everyone from across the political spectrum can despise.

It's what I call the lack of ignorance about Exponential Yewgenics (exponential-yewgenics.co.nr): the political and economic consequences of as Albert Einstein said "The greatest shortcoming of the human race is our inability to understand the exponential function."

And so about 98% of us go along, uneducated about exponential functions, and accordingly don't apply them to population issues, energy, water and arable land resources, etc; and then neither do we know that the February 1986 Report of the Vice President's Task Force on Combating Terrorism, chaired by Vice President George Bush, Sr. concluded that the root cause of terrorism was the exponential functions of overpopulation colliding with scarce resources.

So, as population pressures increase, so does the need to find solutions for the population pressures and squabbles over scarce resources; and since the populace prefer not to address root causes (have less babies, and use resources considering their scarcity); solutions ranging from biological warfare depopulation via AIDS to filling the FEMA concentraction camps, with excess to be culled population and removing their valuables, and practicing some LEBENSRAUM ARBEID MACHT FREI.... depopulation...

I am not condoning it, mereley stating an observation from studying history; and human behaviour, and humans (except for a few Scandinavian countries) continued REFUSAL to encourage negative or zero population growth, and respectful treatment for natural resources such as oil, water, etc...

Sometimes we need to take a look at the bigger picture; if we are serious about addressing the issues.

I'm not at all sure just what you're talking about. And what you've written sounds--well--off the wall.

I just want American individuals to be as free as possible and to remember the basic principles of freedom we've fought for for so long.

BTW, people who believe in over-population must not travel much.
