The House passed H.R. 418, the “REAL ID Act of 2005,” today, the thought being that if there’s no support for a national identification card, then perhaps they can get away with nationally consistent identification cards.

Where is Hal Lindsay to rile up the party faithful when you need him?

Also it causes all, both small and great, both rich and poor, both free and slave, to be marked on the right hand or the forehead, so that no one can buy or sell unless he has the mark, that is, the name of the beast or the number of its name.

Oops, I almost forgot. Some want to hasten the day.

Anyway, I’ll need to read this bill when I’m not tired. It deserves comment.
