    Umm, yeah. That's pretty much been common knowledge for a while now.

    They've been hitting us over the head with it now for about a year now. What isn't common knowledge is the phased-in aspect of the programme.

    The air portion begins in two months.

    Armchair thinks he's cute.

    Can't wait until January 9 until all those Americans can't get back to their country because they forgot to apply for a passport.

    Had one for 10 years, and the first trip I took with it, I was in surgery for breaking my arm in 6 places the day after I got there.

    Maybe I'll burn it.
  9. Hey, you guys always are quick to point out you're a soverign nation. When it comes to your comings and goings at our border, I guess we're just giving you what you want -- treatment like every other soverign nation. Passport, please?

    I went to Mexico two years ago and you didn't need a passport to go into the interior of the country. However, you had to produce a birth certificate and a couple of other documents, so I got a passport for everybody in my family because it was easier than going through the other stuff.

    It's also the easiest way to prove that you are a US citizen and the best form of identification.
  11. True, that. Even though you don't need a passport to go to Canada, I got tired of the hassle I'd get on both sides of the border. Ever since I got a passport, it's been clear sailing.

    Not worthy of you, Junkie.

    I never said--ever--that the U.S is a godawful place. My dislike of the group of thugs presently in power is another thing altogether.

    I bet I've seen more of the U.S. than most of the people on this board. And I've loved almost every minute of it (there was this redneck diner in Arkansas that made me slightly uncomfortable and except for Key West, I'd never visit Florida again)
