The Washington Post talking about how we all need universal IDs.

an effective solution would be to issue tamper-proof, biometric ID cards — using fingerprints or a comparably unique identifier — to all citizens and legal residents

And lest you think that we will require them for everything we do, I’ve assembled a partial list of what they’ll be required for and not.

They will be required for (partial list):

Driving a car, renting a car, buying a car, buying any goods, getting Internet service, getting electricity hooked up, all services and utilities, air travel, boat travel, train travel, bus travel, automobile travel (passenger), going through security at airports and all gov’t facilities, when talking to any gov’ t official, when paying taxes, when being arrested, when being released from jail…

They will not be required for (full list):

Voting, running for President.
