Are you ready for a totalitarian state, just in time for Y2k? On October 1 of this year, you must have a federal i.d. card in order to be employed, and you will be forbidden to employ anyone unless they have this card. The Republicans were supposed to stop this socialist tag-in-the-ear program, but they were bought out, apparently.

Actually, if this sort of thing offends you, you might do better to join up with us Libertarians. We are already established as the third largest political party, and we are growing faster than the Dems or Repubs.

It's not a silly post. I don't mind a card, but have to bulk at something like tats or an implant.

I blame you for the most excruciating thought I have had so far today!

Geez, Dieter, some people drill holes in themselves FOR FUN! (Don't ask where.) And then stick in custom-made implants for DECORATION! (But I bet you knew that.)

And some people get their jaw wired shut so that they can't overeat. Only leave room for a straw to be poked in. Uhhhh, that isn't why you talk the way you do, is it?
