Senators Charles Schumer (D-NY) and John Cornyn (R-TX) joined forces and announced a new bill that would require an ID at the point of sale. Phone companies would need to keep this information on file in order to help police thwart “terrorists, drug lords and gang members,” along with the occasional hedge fund manager.
It’s no surprise, of course, that Chuck Schumer would propose another restriction on our freedom, but nonetheless, it ticks me off. When my hubby and I have “what if” conversations around here, prepaid’s are definitely part of the plan.
What if …
- being critical of the government becomes illegal?
- being Christian becomes illegal?
- being alive becomes illegal?
Well, you get the idea. A good laptop with wifi and a prepaid cell were part of our escape package. Now we’ll probably have to dig a bunker, instead.
