The Second Side

I could put something really witty here if I wanted.

"Your Papers, Please"

The Ohio legislature——having never read the words of Jefferson, Franklin or Paine, having never read a novel by Orwell or Huxley, having never read a history text—has quietly passed a law allowing police to demand identification without probable cause. Refusing to identify yourself to an officer could land you in jail. An additional provision in the law requires Ohio citizens applying for a driver's license to sign a form stating they haven't supported terrorist organizations (not sure what defines a "terrorist organization").

Let's see terrorists get around that one, ha!

Actually, if letting police stop us at random to demand I.D. makes us safer, then allowing them to enter our homes at will and search our underwear drawers ought to really make us safe. Hell, just put us all in detention centers with cameras watching our every move. Then we'll be safe as shit, and that's all that matters, right? Safe, safe, safe, safe, safe, safe!

Fuckers. They'll hand out a badge to any 18 year old off the street and you better pray to god they liked you in high school...

Otherwise you're fucked by the "God Complex".

Exactly. I'm considering joining up with the dark side, just to be safe.
