Re: Bouncers 'checking Facebook on phones' as identification
The article said it was easy to get convincing fake ID. So England doesn't have anything like Real ID? Why don't the bouncers just run the driver's license with a bar code checker...check your fingerprints and all the stuff that is in the Real ID that is now mandated in all states? I have to pay this year to get my perfectly good 8 year driver's license I got just last year exchanged for Real ID driver's license, otherwise, come January I won't be able to fly (because I don't have a current Passport) or enter a federal or state building.
I don't agree with that article saying it is easy to get convincing fake ID. I have to get an orginal birth certificate from the hospital where I was born to show the Driver's license bureau, my social security card to show them, and if I didn't already have a drivers license with my photo then a credit card, etc with photo, my fingerprints that are on file already will be checked again, etc. How can that article say it is easy to fake a Real ID? I thought Britain was more Orwellian than the USA so I am surprised that it is very easy to fake whatever they call Real ID.
