The new security friendly fascism coming to a city near you, starting in Frisco

San Francisco wants everyone who ever enters any kind of bar, pub, restuarant, club, or venue to be photographed and ID’d prior to entrance. They are PASSING THIS LAW. In addition to the obvious 4th ammendment violations, this allows bouncers and bar owners access to all your personal data in your wallet…and they must have an uplink with SFPD in real time. Is this America or the Soviet Union, because i cannot tell the difference any more. Wait…they don’t do this in Russia…ah…
