Also, if your state's drivers licenses are not compliant with the REAL ID Act and your state hasn't been granted a waiver extension, your ability to access certain federal and military facilities may be limited and in the future, possibly your ability to board aircraft.  I mention this because, in my opinion, it is important for everyone to have a Passport for all the obvious reasons.  Below are some links that explain the REAL ID Act and your state's status:

Think it's fraud, a scam, myth or hoax?  Check it out here:


Important Note:  As if we didn't already know, the 2016 general election definitively confirmed that there is a lot of misinformation and disinformation floating around out there, even from websites and other sources that claim to be legitimate fact verification websites and yes, the same ones that are often cited by the mainstream media as holy grails of truth. Unfortunately, I cannot recommend one website from which to get absolutely accurate information, so I suggest that you consult multiple websites and just because they echo each other's claims doesn't necessarily make the claim true.  Also, I'm sure everyone's heard the adage, "follow the money."   Find out who operates and funds the website or source and you can pretty much tell whether you're dealing with a biased resource and whether you can trust it.

News Resources:

You wouldn't read a few sentences out of one history book and think you know everything there is to know about history, would you?  Well, take it from this detective who has to sort through a lot of "stuff" - that's exactly what's happening if you're getting all your news from the militant, intolerant, progressive, left-wing-biased, agenda-driven elitists in the so-called national "mainstream media" echo chamber and that goes double if your "news" sources are morning celebrity talk shows or late-night comedians. Really?? At the very best, you're getting half (or less) of the story and at worst, you're getting the wrong/inaccurate story. Don't walk around in a fog of misinformation, disinformation and complete ignorance.  In today's world, you MUST be informed accurately and completely, so be sure to get the whole story and not just a small, biased part.  Do your homework. Get informed. Get educated. Get the whole truth!


Don't think you're being misled, lied to or only being told part of the story?  Consider this article exposing bogus polling statistics:  REVEALED: How Approval Polls and 'Junk' Journalism are Fake Views Pushed by Fake News 07-17-2017 orthis study from Harvard's Kennedy School-Shorenstein Center on Media, Politics and Public Policy orHere are Some Key Ways the Mainstream Media Distorts the Truth 08-23-2017Don't think the media is biased?  Consider these articles:The Bubble is Worse Than You Think - Politico May/June 2017Former NPR CEO opens up about liberal media bias - NY Post, 10-21-2017,  Pew Research Center: US media bias ranks worst in the world, 1-11-2018
