Challenge to Kookynelly

    Here’s my challenge to Ken Kookynelly:  Stop me and ask for my papers, fool.

    At age 65 and as a retired Army officer, I’ve never carried proof of citizenship except when outside the country with my passport.  In my wallet I carry:  VA DL; retired Military ID; huntin’ and fishin’ licenses; photos of my grandson, wife, and children; voter registration; various credit cards, debit cards, and the usual other trash.  None of this proves my citizenship status.

    Of course, as a white man, I’m not likely to be asked to “show me your papers.”  Maybe if I pulled a John Boehner and hosed myself with Tan-In-A-Can I’d be stopped for DWDS (Driving With Dark Skin).

    There's no paywall on Blue Virginia, and we definitely want to keep it that way! If you want to help support our work, you can donate here - thanks! Also, you can sign up for our weekly email list here.
