    I was thinking another good idea would be to have a person on a watchlist (terrorist, illegal alien, criminal, democrat) be automatically electrocuted when he failed the fingerprint checkpoint. That would be so cool.

    KGB is scarier, since it does all sorts of thing to its own people... not just foreigners that look different...

    try being a mexican guy walking around in japan. You'll get pulled over ANYWHERE and asked for immigration status. People here should be lucky it's not even close to that.

    You don't necessarily need or want to check everyone's ID. It's like a driver's license--if you're stopped for something, or entering/reentering the country, you'd have to produce it.

    Aliba, that's a good point too. I was thinking of a more 1984 scenario with the government knowing all my movements, but you're absolutely right about companies and their data lists. I feel like I'm already making opt-out phone calls every time I turn around. The amount of information they collect is already extremely invasive, and I don't feel like giving another inch to these people.

    well, actually Russia, and Moscow in particular, has been plagued by terrorist acts... Not on a scale as large as WTC, but many "smaller" ones that took lives of many innocent people. If you could call them "smaller", because a human life is a human life, no matter how few of them are taken at a time...

    And apparently, these terrorist attacks are not stopped or prevented in Russia, even though there are soldiers and policemen on every corner, checking documents of every darker looking person.. They do look away if slipped a couple of bucks.

    Porcelain--What I'm worried about is not government, but all the private companies that have data about me, and exchange or sell it. I'd rather have officials that I elect, and who are accountable to me, collecting data, and getting it right, than some company who's shipping my data overseas without my knowledge or consent. Actually, I'd better start reading those privacy notices I get--better you should too, if you don't already.

    That would be such a hassle. Busses and trains already have a hard enough time keeping to thier schedules. Just imagine how long it would take to get somewhere if everytime someone got on they had to scan thier fingerprints and prove thier citizenship!! Talk about a way to discourage people from using public transportation!!

    A lot of senior citizens, who are some of the main users of public transportation, would be extremely offended. Older people often get offended if you even ask them for thier ID to cash a check!! I've seen people at the bank get angry about it on many occasions. One gentlmen who was in front of me in line at the bank became extremely irate when the teller politely asked to see his ID.

    Anyone who thinks that most Americans want such hassles needs to think again. It is one thing to be grilled when entering the United States from a foreign country, it is quite another to be grilled when going about everyday business.

    Driver's licenses used to be accepted as proof of legal residency or citizenship for travel between Michigan and Canada, and, of course, passports--don't know if they still are. If California had gone ahead and given driver's licenses to illegal aliens, Customs was planning to start requiring passports for travel between the US and Mexico (and probably the US and Canada).

    Federal law requires that immigrants carry proof of their immigration status. They haven't enforced that in recent years, though there was talk of it after 9/11--but the law's still on the books.

    actually, I'm a USC (6th generation of German descent, by the way), and I would absolutely, totally, strenuously object to being fingerprinted everywhere I go. Call me conservative, but I just don't want the government to interfere with my life that much.

    Americans SHOULD be outraged that people are not being checked and forced to have their fingerprints checked at every possible opportunity; planes, trains, cars, malls, etc ... No true American would object. Also on-the-spot citizenship tests should also be given and anyone who fails should be deported (including USC's).
