I thought we weren't living in Soviet Russia? The DHS wants to increase the Real ID provisions to include buying some OTC drugs. Do not let this kind of crap fool you. More security provisions (which don't secure a damn thing) like this keep eroding our privacy and freedoms till we have nothing. Don't let the government do this.


His comment came five days after the agency released final rules implementing the REAL ID Act of 2005 that made no mention of such requirements. It mandates the establishment uniform standards and procedures that must be met before state-issued licenses can be accepted as identification for official purposes.

Beyond boarding airplanes and entering federal buildings or nuclear facilities, there are no other official purposes spelled out in the regulations. And that's just what concerns people at the Center for Democracy and Technology. They say Baker's statement underscores "mission creep," in which the scope and purpose of the REAL ID Act gradually expands over time.

What a scary time we live in thank to the 'terrorists.' The people have to fight against the government because of them taking our rights away. Terrorists have won?
