Yesterday, I went and stood in the long line at the Department of Motor Vehicles (Missouri) for over an hour (not as bad as I thought it would be). Naturally they only allow a limited number of people in (face mask required). I needed to renew my driver’s license. A couple of weeks ago I had renewed my vehicle plates (line wasn’t as long then but we are approaching the end of the month). To my surprise……………
When I was finally seated for renewing my license, I handed the clerk all the appropriate documents required that would allow me to receive the REAL ID compliant license, which is the “Enhanced Driver’s License” that will “allow” me to board planes for domestic travel. I have no problem with providing all this proof that I am an American citizen. One of the documents I provided was my birth certificate, another was my personal property tax (payment) receipt, another a copy of my auto insurance. With all that, the clerk still asked me if I had my Social Security card with me. I did and he made a copy of it. In Missouri it would seem it would be difficult for an illegal immigrant to get a driver’s license being they are undocumented, unless of course they try providing docs that are fraudulent.
What really was surprising to me about renewing my license was ………. we didn’t have to take the eye exam or road sign recognition test. Years past we always had to. In fact 6 years ago my license was renewed with a class A restriction (corrective vision required/glasses or contacts). I am sure the reason for this is COVID-19. They don’t want everyone sticking their heads up against the vision testing machine, which includes the road rec test. You’d think they would be a bit more creative…….they could test your vision with the wall chart….. which could also include the road signs. What they did was renewed my license with the class A restriction extended. I had no problem with that, I would have probably needed the glasses to pass the test anyway.
So watch out folks I am a driver for another 6 years at least.
I will say, the DMV here did a good job processing people with these long lines and they moved pretty well to my surprise. That said, these people operating the DMV are not state employees……the DMV here is a private company contracted out, for issuing plates, renewing plates and driver’s licensing. The actual road driving test and written driving test are however processed by “state employees”, they are wearing state uniforms.
Yesterday was not a bad experience………..
Now I am off to go by a new driver (golf club that is)! 🙂
Yep, Biden’s hand is up. He has always wanted to be part of the crowd, whichever crowd he is with in the moment.
Illegal aliens are demanding they too receive $1,200 in federal checks from the government as part of a Chinese coronavirus crisis relief package. Open borders organizations like the George Soros-funded United We Dream, the National Immigrant Justice Center, and the National Immigration Law Center — all of which represent the roughly 11 to 22 million […]Illegal Aliens Demand $1.2K Each in Taxpayer-Funded Checks — The Daily Buzz
Thousands of undocumented illegal immigrants show up for NY drivers’ licenses. Officials in NY admit it may be the ID they’ll use to vote next. See any issues here? Number one thousands of law breakers line up and are not arrested for having already broken the law. So NY allows those that have no respect for the law and welcome them with the same rights those that came here legally and/or are born here, you know natural born citizens. So, now they agree we should have voter ID? That would be great, but not from illegals. Also, if we were to allow them to vote under an ID, that has not changed their illegal status, which is fraud……it’s voter fraud. They are still illegals. How is that not interfering in our elections? We have illegal foreigners interfering in our elections. And the Democrats want to impeach Donald Trump? They are insane!
It won’t stop with drivers’ licenses or even voting folks! It’s just the beginning. The borders are open. Your legislators have no intention of following the rules of law. And they want to impeach Trump? I can see a lot of offenses impeachable, but not from the White House!
One: Old school baseball, the way it was once played and should be played (in my opinion) is gone. The St. Louis Cardinal manager last evening, with a one run lead in the bottom of the tenth, intentionally walked a batter (with the tying run already at 2nd base) putting the winning run on base with only one out. I could see it coming, a double, a ball that gets past a diving left fielder, scores the winning run, GAME OVER! Nice going Mike Matheny. Old school, you don’t put the potential winning run on base. Gee, let the pitcher pitch. Also, you don’t give the pitcher his option. That is what you are there for, to manage the team!
Two: Illegal immigrants don’t become separated from their families, if they do not cross over the border illegally! You want to stay together………stay the hell where you are. Be the difference in making your country better! Try being a solution, rather than someone else’s problem!
