Anyone aware of this Real ID struggle. Critics claim it is a new type of National ID plan.
The states in rebellion will likely cause huge backlogs when you pass thru airport security. Should you live in one of the rebel states it guarantees you will receive a pat down.

33 States Now Lining Up In Opposition
When even the Department of Homeland Stupidity's own privacy department gives the REAL ID a thumbs down you know things are looking better for the REAL ID Rebellion! From Consumer Affairs:

At least 33 states are pushing for laws or resolutions blocking the program, the Senate recently held hearings on its implications for civil liberties, and the Department of Homeland Security's own privacy department gave the initiative the thumbs-down.

But even parts of the Homeland Security juggernaut are at odds over the implications of REAL ID. The Data Privacy And Integrity Advisory Committee issued a series of comments on May 7 on REAL ID, stating that DHS' prior efforts to address privacy and security concerns were insufficient.

"Given that these issues have not received adequate consideration, the Committee feels it is important that the following comments do not constitute an endorsement of REAL ID or the regulations as workable or appropriate," the committee wrote (

I don't like a national ID. However each state should follow a very strict set of guidlines in order to prevent illegals from getting an ID that allows them to access federal buildings, planes, drive, etc etc.

Why is it hard for me to write a bank check yet an illegal terrorist can get a drivers license?
