All depends on your destination.
Does this matter to us?
What is next, money with quotes by Maya Angelou on it?
I realize this document is held in the hands of foreign government officials but the descent of the quotes is so severe in values that if we had any more pages a quote from Marx would be in there.
And if it were of Groucho I’d be ok.
Mohawks on gratitude to animals? Did you know that Mohawk means “man-eater” or “cannibal” in Algonquin?
The quote on the golden spike at Promontory Point — I don’t know if I would read too much into that, because it took place in 1869, just 4 years after the end of the War Between the States. I think they were referring to the “reunification” of the country after the end of the War.
Just be lucky it’s still in English and not habla espanol.
RFID....That’s all you need to know about the new passports. Why do words upset you?
There are quotes written inside of U.S. passports? Is this something new? Or has this always been done? I’ll have to ask a friend if I can look at her passport to check out the quotes as I don’t have one.
What bothers me is when posters emit the o in the word God.
What is wrong with saying God and spelling the whole word when speaking of Him???
No, nothing wrong with the quote on the Golden Spike. It made a lot of sense at the time. But why was it chosen among the very few quotes for our Passport?
The old one from 1999 had no quotes at all.
We just had to get out passports renewed, too.
I’m not overly worried by what’s written on it, as long as our name, etc are spelled correctly.
The worst thing is what you have to go through to renew them—and the cost to do so.
Sorry, it is the opposite of trying to offend. It’s a Jewish thing where we are forbidden to write His name on anything that is to be shortly destroyed. The ancient rabbis did not conceive of the Internet! :). Well, it’s another reminder for me of holiness as I have to make that pesky change and that remembering should do me some good. One hopes.
It sucks one has to line up at the local USPS office and it takes time for the post office union clerk to process them.
Just be lucky its still in English and not habla espanol.
The first pages have everything in 3 languages! English / French / Spanish. But that is just for the officials in other countries so that’s ok.
The long lists of important info and restrictions are 100% in English. So far. :)
It’s two fold:
1) It’s their agenda
2) It’s a waste of taxpayers’ dollars and trees
Well, at least it didn’t have:
“Yes, we can!”
“Hope and Change”
Maybe they’re saving that for his next term.
