Ohio BMV is anti-veteran

There are times when you understand why Americans think their government is run by incompetent imbeciles. Today, I witnessed proof.

A friend, who is a veteran, who has been living off the grid- so to speak, is coming back into society. I’ve been helping him get things in order.

Today, he got a car. The Title bureau asked for ID- he presented his VA ID- and the transfer was made.

Head over to the license bureau, present same ID. Nope. A federal, photo ID with anti-copying technology, not acceptable.

His Social Security card? Sure that’d be fine- except she called his a “Stub”- not the ID. It had his number, his signature, and his name.

He has a micro copy of his DD-214- but, we couldn’t find the SSN.  And, remember- the promise that your SSN was “never to be used for identification purposes”- yeah right.

So, here is the form she handed him for a “valid and acceptable ID”- it includes an “Employer ID Card with photo” a W2 (hey, I’m an employer- I can make these things up all day long)- and wait- a “Motor Vehicle Title”- which we handed her.

A CCW license is acceptable- as is a credit card- but a VA ID is not.

It’s time for a congressional investigation, threaten to shut down the government, c’mon Mike Turner- you’re pro-veteran, get to work.

Maybe if the BMV offices weren’t run by political party cronies, we wouldn’t have these problems.

Here’s the official BMV form 2424. Read it and weep.
