Darn, never thought about that. Keeping your promise of not doing anything sure is going to be hard.As CinC I imagine you could order the air force officer to get his butt outta that seat. But then you woulda done something and broke your promise to do nothing.
There's the proof that if there's a way to screw something up, the government will find it.Speaking of birth certificate, had to renew my drivers license a couple years ago. Took 3 trips to the DMV with hours of waiting. First I had to have my birth certificate , (Not birth Announcement ) I took it in, Not Good, had to be on the latest birth certificate form. I wasn't born this year so it is not on the latest form, had to call the WV state DMV office in Charleston and get an application for a copy of my birth certificate on the latest form along with a nice check with the appication. Told the woman that I worked for a military contractor in the 1960's making parts for the military and my birth certificate was good enough for the Federal government and it should be good enough for the state government. OOPs , another problem, they didn't tell me about, have to have 3 home utility bills to prove you live at the listed address. I just have two.
It was even worst than that when I bought a camper from a woman down the road last year. They wanted a copy of the sellers marriage license to make sure her last name is correct. She made me a copy as requested and I took it in. NOPE , not good enough, then was told it has to be the original, not a copy. I was loosing my cool, looked over to the Cop that was looking at me. Then another woman came over and told the PERSON? waiting on me that she would take over and get it taken care of. She was also upset at what was going on and got everything straighten up and apologized for the treatment from the first PERSON?
The next time I need to get my drivers license renewed, believe it would be a lot easier to just drive without renewing my license and pay the fine when caught. But , that has problems. I don't want to get shot by a cop that is itching to put a round in someone or just get lucky and just spend a few days in the hospital for a beating for doing nothing.
The world is going nuts and sometimes I think I live in the main building of the insane asylum. Each year I think it can't get worse, but it does.
