WHAT THE CRAP?: The BELIEVE System? "Biometric Enrollment, Locally stored Information and Electronic Verification of Employment." See, I wanted to think the horrible (and I hate to use this adjective, since it's a crazy right-winger favorite, but it fits) Orwellian government acronyms were just part of the Bush administration's general mendacity. But no! Barry O is also good at Scrabble! Or something.
Acronyms aside--do we really need another goddamned hassle just to get to work every day? And one more stupid thing for law enforcement to pick on us about? I'm sure that last one marks me as an OMG PARANOID RIGHTWINGER, but whatever.
