Margaret: Please don't muddy this discussion up with the use of clear
legal terms and precise facts. What we need here is rhetoric,
anecdotes, and hyperbole, along with paranoic aggressive posts against
many, mostly unammed others. That is what this situation calls for.
It's how we in the SCA always deal with changes in our administrative
policies; you should know this by now.
> At her invitation, she and I are planning to get together at Pennsic to discuss the issue. If you have questions or suggestions, you can contact her at university at pennsicwar.org. Mistress Catherine Aimee tells me that next year she will be Deputy Mayor/Cultural Affairs, so conversations with her this year will help influence...
(Also, Arianna, please stop being so proactive & constructive. It only
distracts from the public uproar.)
Sarcasm aside, because I'm quoting a seriously misinformed commenter
next, and I want to be perfectly clear...
>From Khristian Pyke <khristianpyke at ymail.com>:
> well to be completely accurate the law is any person over the age of 18 in the united states?must carry photo id this is state law (all 50) ?and part of the patriot act.
There is no such law, nor portion of the Patriot Act.
In fact, the requirement to require citizens to carry ID has been
repeatedly struck down as unconstitutional by multiple Supreme Court
precedents. Later precedent even clarified that you are not even
required to provide law enforcement authorities with your name, should
you choose to remain silent.
If you wish to prove me wrong, cite the wording itself.
> [...] but i would love to be the lawyer who landed the case of an
educator or the employee of an educator denying a person especially a
child their constitutionally granted right to an education (though
this only technically applies at pensic) ?
There is no such right in the Constitution.
>From a later Khristian post:
> i see your point and i agree when did we become the ssca (socialist society for creative anachronism)
"Socialist" is used by many right-wing pundits today to mean "any
government thing I don't like", but in fact it has a specific
definition: "public ownership or common ownership and cooperative
management of the means of production and allocation of resources."
This policy has nothing to do with socialism.
