U.S. Fingerprinting World’s Citizens

Hi, Ed.,

Yes, absolutely! We should start fingerprinting and photographing all US citizens and those with a US Green Card wishing to enter NZ - just the way Brazil is doing! We need to show Uncle Sam that we aren't going to take this shit lying down. This ijust another example of American neoconservative arrogance vis-à-vis the rest of the world and it's time we showed those bastards that if they want to screw with us like that, then we can do the same with them - after the motto "If you can't take it, don't dish it out!"

Thsi would, of course, have disastrous consequences for our export trade, but we should be thinking about expanding our markets anyway - it's never a good idea to rely on one single or major market.

As far as the claom about an international ID is concerned, I'm afraid we may have missed the bus there. Let's face it: a passprt in whatever form is essentially an "international" ID anyway.

Cheers, Bob McMurray - Oftersheim, Germany


Did Scoop Take Over

Did this website take over the website? The last few times I tried to visit, I just get a "page cannot be displayed" error, and one time I got a "this URL is for sale" message. Was shuttered by the government, somehow? Or did the people organizing it move over to this website?
