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.
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.
I went to see Gladys Knight the other evening and they refused to let me into the theater until I had shown the authorities there my papers (a/k/a my ticket) and until after the ticket had been successfully scanned for authenticity. (What a bunch of crybaby hustlers—what an insult that they believe that a thinking American person with any dignity and intestinal fortitude would be bullied and intimidated to be coped by their line of crap!).
