Show me your papers, comrade!

Well, it's finally arrived, the national ID card is here! The US takes another small step towards a totalitarian police state with this one. As usual, the press is out to lunch, more concerned about Michael Jackson than the slow, steady, castration of our civil liberties. At times like these, we should all remember the words of Rev. Martin Neimoller:


First they came for the Communists,
and I didn’t speak up,
because I wasn’t a Communist.
Then they came for the Jews,
and I didn’t speak up,
because I wasn’t a Jew.
Then they came for the Catholics,
and I didn’t speak up,
because I was a Protestant.
Then they came for me,
and by that time there was no one
left to speak up for me.


Write your People's Deputes Congressmen and let them know that you're not afraid to SPEAK UP!
