For Real

Go Montana! They're leading the fight against Real ID, and forcing a showdown. Of course, DHS is simply ignoring the complaints that many (17 states!) have raised, and is simply forcing it down our throats. I in particular liked Chertoff's strong logical argument, "grow up". Actually, now that I think about it, he's convinced me. We should grow up about civil liberties and privacy from the federal government, just like those who complained about the Enabling Act should have grown up. Just like abolitionists should have grown up. Just like people who pointed out that no one had even read the Patriot Act before voting it into law should have grown up.
