    No need to wait for your ID to be stolen, the DMV will sell your identity before you ever get your ID.

    Wait till DHS gets that integrated database they're jonesin' after. I could probably pay one of those clowns to cross-reference your TUG user name and give me every thing you've ever done, every purchase you've ever made by debit/credit, and every medical procedure. What a brave new world we have.

    No one should be surprised at this nor if a DMV worker were bribed to obtain info that could be used to obtain a fraudulent ID.

    Ah, so for $200 I can get a fake ID and overcome all the wonderful TSA identity check BS? Better start groping a few more breast cancer survivors, that the only thing that can stop that!

    Sadly, the price now has gone up; it could be as much as $400 currently. :D

    And this is why REAL ID will never work.
