I had no idea that retirement communities in Florida are a hotbed for terrorist sleeper cells. I didn't think terrorists even lived long enough to retire, or that Al Qaeda and ISIS offered retirement benefits for their members. But evidently, Florida's retirement communities have been infiltrated by terrorists, and Florida DMV and NSA are going to make sure they can't drive to locations to launch attacks. If they want to blow up shit they'll have to take city buses, taxicabs or golf carts to their target areas
I recently got this notice from Florida DMV regarding my need to renew my driver's license in December. Right click and select launch in new window to see full size...
Please note the documents needed to renew license: birth certificate (have that), SS card (have that), documents showing residential address (have that), and documents linking birth name to current name- hell no, I don't have that! For most women that wouldn't be a problem, but I've had what many would consider an unusual life. You see, I've been married 6 times and in my younger days was a bit of a gypsy so paperwork was lost over the years as I moved around. Most of the paperwork I could get (though it would probably cost a pretty penny), except for the first name change...
My first change of name happened over 50 years ago when I was just 16 or 17. For some reason I still don't understand my mother talked my boyfriend and me into getting married. And no, I wasn't pregnant. It's a bizarre story and I don't remember all the details, but my mom drove my boyfriend and me across the IL./Michigan border and we were married somewhere in Michigan. I don't remember the date, the town or the county. We were married only a couple of years and lived apart most of it. He decided he wanted a military career which wasn't the life I wanted so we went out separate ways. I don't even remember when we got divorced or where. Evidently I've blocked it from my mind because I can't remember much at all from that time period of my life. My mom has been dead for years so I can't ask her the wheres and whens, and I have no idea where my ex is now or even if he's still alive.
So after having a driver's license for over 50 years, a clean driving record with no accidents, only 1 speeding ticket in all these years, using the same name on my driver's license and Social Security card for the past 30 years, and having a Florida driver's license for the past 10 years- I now can't renew my license. All because I can't prove a name change that happened over 50 years ago.
At the top of my renewal notice it says "A Safer Florida". Don't you all feel safer from terrorism knowing I won't have a driver's license? I won't be able to drive to locations and launch terrorist attacks... like at bingo or community potlucks.
We all know that there are sleeper cells of +65 year old mumu clad white women just waiting to wage jihad.
I'm glad the better part of my life is over because I don't even recognise my country anymore. We've become terrified sheep who go along with the government's intrusive and punitive demands because of our desperate need to feel safe. I don't like this new and "safer" America... Screw you, Florida & NSA- the terrorists win.
