Do you have a passport issued by your state? I guess we need those now.

Only the best and brightest work in the bureaucracy of our governments capitol.

"Clarkson, who lives in Las Cruces, and his then-fiancée visited the District of Columbia Courts Marriage Bureau on Nov. 20 to apply for a marriage license.

But, once there, the couple encountered a small problem, Clarkson said. The clerk wouldn't accept Clarkson's driver's license – from New Mexico – as proof of his identity. Rather, the clerk, who mistakenly believed Clarkson was a foreign citizen, said he would have to provide an international passport to get the marriage license.

After Clarkson objected, the clerk went to check with a supervisor, who confirmed Clarkson would need a passport.

"You know you are from flyover country when you are applying for a marriage license, give them your New Mexico driver's license, and they come back and say: 'My supervisor says we cannot accept international driver's licenses. Do you have a New Mexico passport?'" Clarkson posted on Facebook recently."

How remarkably ignorant must you be to not know that New Mexico is a state? And the supervisor too? And yet there are people who have no problem letting persons like this having unelected power over others.

3. This is why their license plates now say "New Mexico USA"

They were being mistaken for being foreign vehicles.

9. Or Houston

Actually it was about the low standards D.C. has

In the late 90's it was found several cops who got in due to lowered standards were wanted before getting hired.

1 was a murderer, another a drug dealer

So not so hard to figure if they didnt background check the police candidates the civil service ones got even less scrutiny

8. My brother in law likes to tell

A similar story when would be olympics goer's from NM were denied ticket purchases some years back. Just went to look it up, Im guessing it was based in this story
