getting a passport
« on: April 25, 2011, 06:12:11 PM »
this is in the federal registry as i am typing it out, real soon in order to get a pass port you will need to list all of your empolers from the first job you ever had and the supervisor and name of company and telephone nr, heck i am 67 years old just how in the h--- do they expect me to remember everone that i have worked in the last 52 years, this is coming from the people that our president has working for him. HEAVEN HELP US IF HE GETS RE-ELECTED.
you-all have a great day.

Hi jack

State department employees are civil servants and not political employees. Do you have a link to the changes you mentioned. I need to get a passport for my youngest son next month and hope it will not be too difficult. Hopefully changes would not affect me as I already have my passport.

Hi Jack
I was able to find some proposed changes in passport requirements. The are only proposed, not enacted. The changes only apply to people who want a passport but do not have a birth certificate to prove that they were born here. There are a lot of new questions to be answered about birth hospital, baptism, medical care, schools attended, they even want to know if the applicant has been circumcised.

What has being circumcised have to do with getting a passport... :o

It is an...identifying mark...ever seen Mel Brooks' History Of The World, Part I? There's a scene where Gregory Hines' character is identified as a gentile by... :o  Well, just rent the movie.

ANYWAY, this passport requirement proposal (and it is only a proposal at this time) is for applicants who submit citizenship or identification evidence that is "insufficient or of questionable authenticity". Now I don't disagree that a person ought to provide reasonable evidence of identity in order to obtain an official identification document (duh), but I can see where this particular proposal isn't very well regimented and has a lot of potential for abuse.

Someone around here should be amused that this proposal would, if enacted, prevent the current US President from obtaining a passport without providing the extensive additional information -- or a proper Hawaiian birth certificate! Oh, it is to LOL, but seriously this thread should be moved to Recreation & Entertainment.

There is an article on rawstory.com (clicky), the article itself may not be entirely objective but it does contain source references for further study.
