Here, you have to have a photo ID to buy cigarettes, pick up your Will Call tickets at the baseball park, to pick up your pizza at the drive in window, to do ANYTHING at all.
But the folks who "won" the last election are now saying that NO ONE should have to have a photo ID to vote, even though almost every other country, civilized and otherwise, in the world requires it.
So the subject of ID cards, and what they're for, is sort of a sore subject this side of the water at the moment. So sore, it might kick off Civil War II if they keep pushing it.
So for the reasons you mention, we won't end up with "vaccine passes" tattooed onto our hand or forehead so we can buy and sell ....
