Time to get "Real"

Chertoff: ID must comply to fly businessweek

Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff rebuked lawmakers Friday for seeking to stall new rules on driver's licenses that could cause big headaches for air travelers starting in May.

"Federal authorities are currently at a standoff with a handful of states over a law called Real ID, which would require new security measures for state-issued driver's licenses."

"Chertoff has warned that if holdout states do not send a letter by the end of March seeking an extension, come May, residents of such states will no longer be able to use their driver's licenses as valid ID to board airplanes or enter federal buildings."

"The nation's top homeland security official also offered a blunt warning to those critics who claim the government is bluffing when it says it will impose harsher security reviews in states that do not seek an extension from the Real ID law.'

"Showing up at the airport with only a driver's license from such a state will be no better than showing up without identification," he wrote. "No doubt this will impel many to choose the inconvenience of traveling with a passport."

Homeland Security" is rebuking lawmakers? Who's in charge here?

What is "Real ID"?
Answer: A national control system, as opposed to 'individual states' system. It's a "Homeland" thing. Most people have never even heard of it, and unfortunately, it's only the beginning. Get informed 'comrade', your rights are being dissolved. And while we are being told that all this is for our "safety" i.e. security, a monstrous global bureaucracy is silently rising on every side. Are you seeing it yet?
