Can I punch him in the face for you?


People like him give pasty white folks like me a bad name. We're not all ignorant, racist bigots...but so many people seem to be these days.

Maybe once we get out of the governing of a cowboy as our President we might see a shift in mindset, particularly with an Obama presidency.
This kind of ultra-nationalistic mindset scares me, and it's been around a long time before Dubya became President. His "brand" of governing has only exacerbated this mindset, and I sincerely hope that an Obama presidency will start to change things.

Me too. Though in a sense, simply electing someone like Obama will show dramatic change in the voters.

well, when i went up to border patrol i had my driver's license ready as usual. this bitchfuck didn't even look at it, and he said to me "do you have your birth certificate?" i said "no." and i handed him the license. then he looked around at my car and asked where i was born. i said "VA". he did more typing or whatever. then he handed me some document and said "next time you come into the us, you need to have with you what is on this list of required documentation." i just said okay and drove off. id idn't want to start a fight bc i already knew what was up.

it CLEARLY said on that pamphlet that a driver's license was a preferred and speedy way to get through the border. what this assclown was looking for was PROOF OF CITIZENSHIP. who the fuck carries around a birth certificate? he figured my mexican ass had somehow walked my way up to canada?? WTF?! last time the driver's license was fine. and even that pamphlet says so. he's a fucking asshole and i wanted to punch him in the face.

I'm sorry, Mia! Officials who make on-the-spot judgement calls by simply looking a person up and down are nothing but racist fucks!

Btw, I didn't know that Americans only needed their DL to cross the border. I thought there was a new rule to carry the passport?

I know to cross over to the states and get back I need a DL + birth certificate or passport...

I don't think passport only (for land crossing) takes effect until 2009 sometime

Sorry for your craptastic experience, Mia. That's really stupid of them.


elfa's right - I think it's 2009 before a passport is mandatory.
