Yet another reason why Real ID will be useless over the long term
 
2007-03-04 01:32:45 AM  
thats why I sold my brother's certificate instead

So I see why they're sentencing the sellers, I mean they're bad-people illegal turrists now.

Must piss 'em off that they can't touch the mexicans, though. I mean, they're legal now. Documentation and everything.

Keep the taxpaying ones with jobs and documentation and send the ones who sold the documentation to Mexico.

Just one more step before everyone gets microchipped like "your dog".

I sold my birth certificate years ago for $35

At the time I was thinking, why the hell do I need this?

I was born.. I'm here... why do I need a peice of paper saying that Im alive.

I need scraps of paper to stay alive. They are green ones called dollars.

Your dog wants to be microwaved for 1 second to fry his microchip.

You're kidding, right?

There are all sorts of laws against fraudulently obtaining ID etc. They sure as hell can go after the illegal aliens who used the birth certificates.

And I was thinking about buying fake Mexican credentials so I could hide out there when the Feds get really uppity. At least in Mexico, bribery of public officials is affordable to the common man from his local cops, not just huge corporations and federal politicians.

I'm told I must prove that I can drive a car before I can board an airplane.

I know. My state gov't is trying to count the illegal immigrants in Va, but now they're getting flak from different areas. Schools are saying that they can't count the children, real & fake documentation is preventing them from counting some, & many businesses would rather keep their cheap labor than report their illegals.

My question on cheap illegal labor is this: If you fire all of the legal citizens & hire illegal immigrants, wouldn't that have a more negative effect on the economy? After a while there won't be anyone to buy said products or live in said buildings made/built by the illegal labor.

Damn - they might be on to me now. I've got 6 illegals working on my Social Security number. I'm out of the country anyway, so I figured they'd never catch on. The illegals all have regular jobs and are hard workers. And I'm going to collect a hell of a pension. I call this system "delegating".

My dog is a Mastiff. I'd have a hard time fitting him in a microwave.....
unless I chopped him into pieces.....
and I think my chances of him allowing that are about.....
.....um.....zero.

Wait... nevermind... I see these people driving every day... :-/

WCCO trifecta in play?
 
2007-03-04 08:40:07 AM  
the headline from TFA:

"Some Sell Their IDs For Illegal Aliens"

shouldn't that be To instead of For?

To me, that implies that in exchange for my proof of American citizenship, I get an illegal alien.

Sweet deal!

The government enforces the laws that it chooses to enforce.

The government steadfastly refuses to enforce the immigration laws. The meaning here is that the government needs the illegals to prop up social security and medicare. And will give away your childrens and your rights to do it.

Don't we therefore get to pick some laws that we get to ignore on a regular basis.

Illegals are involved in the deaths of 12 americans a day. Do the math 12 a day x 365 days x 3 years = 13140.
and the left wants to scream about 3100 soldiers killed in Iraq.

Where's the outrage from the left over this issue.

Tony, I was right there with you until you jacked it to a 'left, right' thing. Why would you end your argument before you begin it by going there? Could it be because you don't really want any change or any progress, just continued partisan bickering?

What's the long term repercussion?

I see benefits :-
- Somebody is adding additional money to your social security
- Tax refund?

Bad things :-
- Tax complications?

This is has been going on for years. There was a post on OT Fark a while back:

Jacob wanted for questioning in birthright scam. Your dog wants a mess of pottage.

longun45:

Mind if you give a source for that number?

In any case, tobacco killed 1,300,000 (Filthy liberal source) people in that same three years, but I'd be willing to bet you have no problem with it being further deregulated.

My girlfriend has no drivers license. She can board planes without problems.

It's much worse than that. How stupid do you have to be to think that your ticket to the appearance of citizenship for some illegal alien is worth only 100 dollars? Didn't criminals at least used to try to make quite a profit over a risky crime? Proof that the American public is getting dumber by the day.

dj245: mounting the pilots is not the same as boarding the plane. Think you'd better have a talk with her to clarify those terms.

Sadly, this kind of behavious is all too common among drug addicts.

There was a guy on fark, about a month ago, who sold his car for $100. He later had something of a buyer's remorse.

/ Seller's remorse?
