This is yet another example in a LONNNNNNNG line of examples which should be making everybody VERY afraid, but doesn't seem to be making much impact
in the general population (BIG surprise there).
Another small chipping away of our freedoms for mankind is all it is basically. Baby steps to get the masses used to/and accept being intruded upon
and scrutinized, and for the most part not doing, or having done anything wrong.
Public safety, my a$$. They can trot out THAT tired line all they want to, other people may believe as they want but THIS girl isn't buying. Sell
crazy someplace else, I'm all stocked up here.
I consider my name every bit as personal what clothes I choose to wear, the fact that I like potato chips dipped in cottage cheese, and the things I
do with my husband in the privacy of our bedroom.
Just as I refuse to wear a nametag at my job. It's all for the same basic reason. You get what you need from me at work. A Sandwich and, if you're
halfway decent to me, a smile as well. You don't need to know my name or whether I prefer tacos to tostadas, or even if I'm a cat or a dog
People are far too nosy today. I find it almost intolerable at times. If the police need my name for a legit reason, say I was speeding and pulled
over, or something like that, then they can have it. But I'm not turning over MY personal information out of nosy curiosity or because the police
think I was a witness to some horrible criminal caught drinking a beer or smoking a joint (Perish the thought !) in a city park.
