    Star or no Star, just our government doing "something " to make you feel safe.
    After getting to the airport 2 hours early, getting on a long security line. Taking off my boots, belt and all items in my pocket.
    Going into that body scan machine. Then putting your clothes back on having some guy with a badge man handle my Resistol.
    Flying is more of a chore. I remember when flying was an enjoyable experience. I drive whenever I can.

    I suspect that whatever "real ID" ideas they come up with there will be a few forgeries appear quickly.

    I donít really understand the importance of it myself. Someone buys a plane ticket, they fly. It should be no different than taking a bus, train, or taxi.
    We get the government we deserve.

    You should need a star on your DL to vote. Driver licenses are forged but the real ID may be a little harder to do so. I am not a fan of this system. At my age I really do not give a --- anymore. What will we do when Trump is gone and the left takes over??? Again I am getting to old to care.

    Typically. CA is on a probationary list. They have a number of issues to fix before they can issue the gold star licenses. And just as predictably, the feds will allow CA residents to continue flying AFTER the rest of the country must produce the Real ID to fly on domestic flights.

    It is such a great thing I have not been elected POTUS. I would make some immediate...uhhh...adjustments in federal funding and other essentials to CA. Maybe they could chip in the salaries they pay state employees and politicians to make up for the shortfall.

    I really feel for all you good folks living in that mess.

    May not be your choice. Next time you go to renew your DL you'll need certified birth certificate, a dozen bill statements showing current address, 25 notarized witness statements saying they've known you for no less than 25 years and verify you live at your address, six photo IDs verifying you are you, and your momma's DNS to prove you're hers. Otherwise . . . no DL.

    Ain't life grand?
