At Christmas my hope for humanity usually swells to an all-time high. Today, less than 24 hours since the big fat man paid us all a visit, I am back to my normal doom and gloom self. Thank Amun-Ra for the morons who post at The Register‘s web site – they always come through in a pinch
All hope is lost again. Here’s proof: The Small Business Blog had a post about the new I-9 forms that go into effect today. In part is says:
“The revised form reduces the number of documents employers can accept to verify employment eligibility. The government eliminated five documents because they lacked security features necessary to deter counterfeiting, tampering and fraud.
The five eliminated ID documents are:
• Certificate of U.S. Citizenship (Form N-560 or N-561)
• Certificate of Naturalization (Form N-550 or N-570)
• Alien Registration Receipt Card (I-151)
• Unexpired Reentry Permit (Form I-327)
• Unexpired Refugee Travel Document (Form I-571)
In addition, employees no longer must provide a Social Security number unless they are employed by an employer who participates in E-Verify.”
The brain dead trolls who post to forums and write letters to the FCC on behalf of the Parents Television Council and worship at the alter of Rush Limbaugh like a herd of mildly narcotized lemurs posted this:

I have forwarded this to Lou Dobbs, I suggest all citizens call their reps and find out what the heck is going on!”
Ah. It’s nice to shake off all the Holiday cheer so I can feel like my old self again. Perhaps I should thank Marshall (and have him give my best to Lou Dobbs) because he amuses me with his sheer unadulterated stupidity! Sometimes I am proud to live in Orange County and other times I am embarrassed. Guess which feeling Marshall gives me.
