Still . . . 

This isn't such a bad idea inasmuch as it might elicit more July 4th freebies or something more tangible than a sticker that will make the plebs feel better about permanent shifts in the global market economy that rarely work to the advantage of the American working-class. 

Meanwhile, our Kansas City blog community remembers that Mayor Q is making his own IDs that help "new friends" get a bank account and get their utilities going despite this imaginary Missouri crackdown. 


"The bill, which needs another vote of approval to move to the Senate, is part of an effort by GOP lawmakers nationwide who fear more immigrants could lead to noncitizens voting a practice that is already federally prohibited.
