View Diary: Do you have your birth certificate? (250 comments)

  •  I need to renew my passport this year, and I (6+ / 0-)

    need a new Certified Birth Certificate because the State Department is too lazy to look up the old one they already have on file.  Fortunately, I live in the city I was born in, have never changed my name, and it is all typed correctly.  I just have to go downtown, pay for parking, go to a window at the Health Department, fill out a form, pay a fee and in a few minutes, I get the certificate.

    But really, how many people still live in the town where they were born.  20 per cent of Americans change their address in any given year, and millions change their names through marriage, or legal name changes (think Chad Ochocinco!), and yes, people do mistype stuff (except for em).

    So this time, I think I will get 4 or 5 copies.  And I need to replace that Social Security card that was in a billfold I lost 45 years ago, and never bothered to get again.  Hell, I knew the number, and that's all you need, right?

    Republicans are like alligators. All mouth and no ears.
