There should, however, be severe penalties for violating the public trust by posting the embarrasing images on the web. Being entrusted with guardianship of the public carries great responsibility.
New Zealand's Parliament has voted itself far-reaching powers to control satire and ridicule of MPs in Parliament, attracting a storm of media and academic criticism.
The new standing orders, voted in last month, concern the use of images of Parliamentary debates, and make it a contempt of Parliament for broadcasters or anyone else to use footage of the chamber for "satire, ridicule or denigration".
The rules apply any to broadcasts or rebroadcasts in any medium.
They also ban the use of such footage for "political advertising or election campaigning", except with the permission of all members shown.
Com'on Shapley, we can't find out (or, more sadly, don't care) who is traitorously leaking highly classified programs to the media. You think we're going to find out who leaks a pornographic video of hizzoner in the car park with Sally Strumpet?
Shapley wrote:One person is placed in charge of them, with the understanding that, in the event of a 'leak' of information under his protection, the leaker is to be punished, or the 'keymaster' will be. Unless and until that information is needed for court, it does not leave the 'vault'. Once a few heads have rolled over sloppy handling, the message will get out that business is meant. Unfortunately, business is seldom meant. An unpopular mayor or an ambitious police chief will result in sloppy handling at the vault, with resultant leaks from unidentified sources and no real effort to identify those sources.

Just started researching this from your post...
From what I read it is being done through DMV....
There are always Unlicensed drivers...
Seems like it will be too easy to get around "The System"
How in the world do they expect this to work and be enforced?

They're both on credit-card sized plastic cards, have mag swipe strips on the back, the DoD one has a smart contact plate and something encoded in the speckly black square on the back...

Sounds like I'll be able to cover all the bases, though, with my current license, a birth certificate, and my ancient, tattered, yellow original paper SSAN card (which I still have!). Maybe I should pack a lunch and some Excedrin, too.
