I heard Rush Limbaugh say that Lifelock was the bomb.
He also spoke highly of Sleep Number beds.
Have you posted threads about those things?
Every time I ever got pulled over by a traffic cop I was asked for my papers - ususlly referred to as my license.
Every time I am pulled over by a cop he asks me for three papers; license, registration and proof of insurance.
No, it is hate speech to accuse him of any similarities to policies instituted by the Nazis. But the media and White House are perfectly permitted to draw the same comparisons between Arizona law and Nazi policies.
You can't spell Nazi without AZ.
My husband used to have a green card. He was never instructed to carry it at all times. We did have to produce it for his employers. Of course, this was years ago, and now he’s naturalized...but once you’re naturalized, you have no “card” to prove legal status other than your naturalization certificate, which is big, bulky, and fragile (we safeguard his so it doesn’t get destroyed.)
If someone walked up to you right now and said “Prove your’e a citizen”...how would you do that? Do you carry papers on you that would prove you’re a citizen? I think a voter’s ID or birth certificate is the closest thing we have to that, but many people don’t carry those with them.
When I went to renew my driver’s license (which had not yet expired) I had to go in person because even though they had my social security number on file (required for all men to prove they are not deadbeat dads in Texas), they had to physically SEE my SS card AND I think they also needed more documentation (passport or birth certificate I think).
And our president doesn’t have to show squat.
Consider this when he speaks out against AZ and papers. Arizona also recently passed a law to require proper paperwork to get on the ballot in 2012.

Pull my social security card out of my wallet.
When I travel abroad, something I do quite often, I am required to carry my passport. I do not have the same rights as the citizens of the country of which I am a guest. In many countries upon entering I must state where I will be staying, the purpose of my visit, when I will be leaving, how much cash I am traveling with and other inquiries that I may feel are intrusive.
A license doesn’t prove citizenship...every state has different requirements, and some are so weak that an illegal can get a driver’s license, as well as own a car and get insurance.
Show my genuine, state issued ID? Is this a trick question?
I had to present my birth certificate to get my DL. Do they just give them out in your state with no documentation?
I don’t carry mine, but if they are going to enforce this law, then they need to set down specific parameters as to what will “prove” legal status. I know people can be here legally, and still not have a social security card. My next door neighbor is German, he’s here legally, but doesn’t have a green card, or a SSnumber. So there is going to have to be some sort of specification as to what proves you’re legal and what doesn’t.
A man from the Social Security office briefed my preretirement Transition Assistance Program class.
He said your social security card should be kept in a safe place and not in your wallet. It's a valuable tool for identity theft. If someone were to steal your wallet you might be in a world of hurt!
I was a green card holder from the age of 5 until about 33.
That is correct. You ARE REQUIRED by LAW to have your green card on your person at all times, starting at the age of 18.
You used to have to also report your current address every year, but that is no longer required.
New Mexico issues drivers licenses to illegal immigrants.
They just now started making strict rules in Florida...so no, I didn’t have to show my birth certificate when I got mine years and years ago. I haven’t shown up at a DMV for years either, I’ve renewed by mail. I did have to show proof of residency, but anyone could have that.
Each state sets their own rules, I think NC has the easiest rules to get a driver’s license. Check it out, you don’t need a birth certificate.
