Our Government at it's finest

So the State of Arizona lost (misplaced, accidentally shredded, sold?) quite a few of their employee records. If that isn't bad enough, Karl received a notice that he had to provide proof that he is a US citizen by a certain date. huh? Karl was required to provide proof that he was a US citizen when he applied for this job 8 years ago. Karl's sergeant was also one of the employees who had to provide this documentation.

Karl asked his sergeant what would happen if he didn't provide that information? Would they deport him to DENMARK since that's where his ancestors came from? He is like 4th or 5th generation that was born in the US.

He could come be a policeman over here. I'm sure a stick would be much more amusing than a gun ;)

I wonder if they'll go the Bank of America way (GGGRRRRRR)
and not make him use a social security card!

Ugh! The government can be so infuriating at times. It was a treat getting my California driver's license let me tell you. I hope that he is able to get all the paperwork taken care of with out too much of a hassle.
