Ain't a truer word ever been said in jest?
I think it still is.
50 or 100 years ago, that would indeed be a problem if your "affiliations" was not a good thing and you was a Jew in Germany, France, Netherland, Belgium, and a few other countries in central and northern Europe.
These days I would be looking forward to a National ID card, no problem being a Jew, Arab or Gypsy unless you are driving drunk and/or flipping the bird to a State Trooper..(Not a good idea.. )
Makes life much easier for the honest guys.
Un-documented Alliens may have a problem however, so would Al-Quaida and them towel-heads. but not an honest Yacht Captain paying his taxes and staying within the frame of the law.
During WWII Japanese Americans were confined and after 9/11 the same could have happened to Arab Americans. Some still call them towel-heads. It's not hard to imagine it being the Irish or even yacht captains being deemed a threat. Heck, it could even be Norwegians. Individuality and freedom and privacy are sacred rights. Beyond that though you're charged $135 for nothing.
Reserved for terrorists, no respect for that camp..
Not possible these days with politcal correctness being king.
As for freedom and privacy, all good in a perfect world without Bin-Laden and his band of reg-heads out to cause harm..
Do you remember 9/11?
After several requests by members, I'm closing this thread for further review. Apologies to all.
