I have been self employed most of my life.My license expires next month so I decided to get a "Real ID' that will allow air travel should I decide to do so. So I end up going to the DMV which is akin to having a drano enema, stand in line and go through all of their bullshit only to find out that my certified birth certificate copy is not sufficient forcing me to go to the Health Dept and pay 20 bones for a "certified" certified copy if that makes sense.
For Christ Sake, I am 62 years old. Who the hell my age has their original birth certificate. If you ask me, these is only a ruse by Homeland Security to line the pockets of local government. I went there with a tax bill, a copy of my W2, and all sorts of other shit to prove who I was yet still needed an effin birth certificate. Fuck that noise.
You're not getting on my jet!It's an end-around to installing a National ID card. I find it difficult to believe that the country will really restrict all air travel, unless you have a passport or Real ID, by next year, I think it is. At the very least, that deadline will get extended.
