Is John Hancock rolling over in his grave?

May 30, 2013

You remember John Hancock, right?

He is memorialized for his large and stylish signature on the United States Declaration of Independence … so much so that the term “John Hancock” became, in the United States, a synonym for “signature”.


According to Wikipedia – the people’s encyclopedia –…

The traditional function of a signature is evidential of:

  1. The provenance of the document (identity)
  2. The intention (will) of an individual with regard to that document

For example, you signed your 1040 tax return – either physically or digitally, right?


Did you read the fine print?

Under penalties of perjury, I declare that I have examined this return and accompanying schedules and statements, and to the best of my knowledge and belief, they are true, correct, and complete.


Do the same requirements and penalties apply to Federal officials?

Here are some head-scratching examples to the contrary …


Some places require photo IDs, some don’t … now, I have a new favorite place that does.

Annually, I report how I have to show 3 IDs – including a photo ID – to gain entry to the county dump and throw a couple of bags of leaves onto the compost pile.


Last week, my family went to a down & dirty crab house for dinner.  They wouldn’t put us on the wait-for-an-hour list unless we coughed up and ID – and let them hold it as collateral.


But, possibly the dumbest and certainly the most ironic case was reported by Townhall

Believe it or not,  the NAACP required a government issued photo identification and a second form of identification … to get into their convention to hear Eric Holder speak.

You know, the Eric Holder who – along with the NAACP — stands firmly against photo IDs when it comes to verifying a voter’s identity.

C’mon man.

You just can’t make this stuff up.
