Yesterday an elderly gentleman who works as a tailor at the mens store across from me related this story:

His daughter is a police woman and was called to the bureau of motor vehicles because a woman refused to remove her burka for her driver's ID picture. The woman also called her husband who raised a fuss saying how he didn't like the way his wife was being treated. HELLO folks, this is the United States of America and OUR laws state that your face must show in your photo ID in order to drive a vehicle!!!

The police woman finds it ironic that her lady friend who lives and works in a middle eastern country is forced to cover herself up and obey THEIR laws.

By the way this elderly gentleman is an Italian immigrant. He finds no problem with our laws.

If I am not mistaken in some middle eastern countries women are not allowed to drive.

The American woman I am speaking of is forced to cover up simply to be living and working in their country.

Middle Eastern women have many freedoms in our country that their own does not afford to them.

A fellow who use to post here said the same thing happened where he lives and the bureau of motor vehicles relented and let her wear her covering.

I say, if you want to live here you should obey the laws of our land or go back to the place you left.

I agree with you.
I was saying that this woman should consider herself lucky to be in a country where she is given such priveledges and do what each and every other person has to do when having their photo taken ---- remove head coverings.
I don't think I've ever seen a man's ID with a baseball cap on. Same thing.

I realized that's actually what you were saying.

Glad to have you back, you've livened things up!!!
