wait just one cotton-pickin' minute. where's all that carp i learned in
Gov-Ec about checks and balances? i can understand a limited waiver,
maybe, so long as the limits are sane... but my impressions of any waiver
of legislation for ANY reason is a 6-letter word: stupid.
this has gotta be unconstitutional... isn't it??
and this is in the Real-ID bill??!!
