Superhero Presents Strong Case for ID Cards as States Get Real ID ExtensionJesus Diaz4/05/08 12:00pmFiled to: Real IDCivil LibertiesPrivacyRightsTopWeirdbatman bin suparmanop-ed1401EditPromoteShare to KinjaToggle Conversation toolsGo to permalinkHello guys! Batman Bin Suparman here. I wanted to talk to you about Real ID. Apparently, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security just extended deadlines on Real ID because many states are resisting it. I know that in the United States and the UK national identity cards are considered a risk to privacy, even while US government agencies continuously snoop into conversations and vampire CCTV cameras are everywhere in the UK. But really people, look at my Singaporean ID card and tell me if you think there's anyone capable of spying on Batman Bin Suparman! Yeah, I didn't think so either! I can kick anyone's ass! Hahahahaha—OK, sorry about that. But do you really think a national ID card is such a big risk to your privacy?
