"Your papers, please..."

If you're in the market for a new vehicle anytime after December 31, 2010, be prepared for a background check. If you don't pass it, hit the pavement, Jack, you're out of luck. Maybe you can buy a bicycle.

Although the Department of Homeland Security has had the rule on the books since 2008, it hasn't been enforced.

Until now.

The mandate (and a watch list similar to that at U.S. airports) will affect much more than cars, trucks and motorcycles. Your family physician could get involved.

Are you an American? If you are, congratulations! You're a suspect.

Since 911 the federal government has gradually shifted its focus on the war on terror away from individuals of certain age groups and cultural demographics to suspecting literally anybody and everybody.

A security apparatus driven by artificial precepts not only becomes much less effectual, but can become downright dangerous to individual civil liberties.
