We had a small store close by years ago that got in the news over their sign,

"Eat here, and get gas"

It was up for decades.

I do not care for the ACLU but think they might have interest in what you experienced. Why can not gun background checks be run so fast?

Wait, lets explained that standard...if ever had a DUI can not run for public office? Of bounced a check or never operated a tractor.

Reminds me of a T-shirt I used to have. It advertised a bar & casino and said "liquor up front - poker in the rear"

Many stores from what I understand are looking to verify age. They do not trust the employees to actually check the drivers license. Its a liability issue and they do not want to be held accountable for selling to under age etc. It would be easy to assume they collect more info for other purposes and they may very well be doing so.

It sounds like its time to get a fake ID. Get one that says you're 21 and see with they say. Now that our state governor want's restaurants to take the names of patrons that dine in, I was thinking about getting an ID with the governor's name on it.

Skeets, I'll give you something to vent about! This is an excerpt from a news letter I receive.

Google and Apple just partnered up on COVID-19 “contact tracing”…

As if the above information wasn’t disturbing enough, I have even more news to share.

As we discussed recently, Google recently published its “Community Mobility Reports.” These reports gather location data from smartphones to track how people have been moving around at country, state, and even county levels.

Companies like Google already know where we work, live, shop, entertain ourselves. They even know what parks we go to. But it turns out that’s just the tip of the iceberg. They also know who we are encountering as we go about our daily lives.

This rich treasure trove of data is enabling something called “contact tracing.” It’s designed to alert consumers if they have come in contact with a person who has COVID-19.

And both Google and Apple just announced that they are adding an application that employs this technology to iPhones and Android phones.

Google and Apple will roll out their respective contact tracing apps as early as next month. I, for one, will not be downloading it.


Through this app, our phones will share information with other phones automatically using Bluetooth. That’s right – our phones will connect us to other people’s phones. It will happen automatically. Health authorities like the CDC will manage this communication system.

And it gets much worse.

Later this year, both companies plan to add this contact tracing technology directly to their operating systems.

We’ll get a software update on our phones that will automatically install this functionality – no app necessary. It will be built right into the operating system… We won’t be able to delete it.


Officially, this is an opt-in system. But as we know, this type of thing is usually buried within a giant legal agreement that we must consent to use the product or service. When it gets built into the operating system, we won’t have much choice in the matter. If we consent to use the operating system, we consent to contact tracing.

Looking at the big picture… More than a third of the world’s population uses an iPhone or Android smartphone. That means that Apple and Google will be contact tracing more than three billion people around the globe.

Let’s imagine a worst-case scenario: Let’s say this technology tags you as coming into close contact with somebody infected with COVID-19.

Then, perhaps on your way to the grocery store, a police cruiser is sent to intercept you. You are “contained” by force and quarantined for the sake of society. To me, that sounds an awful lot like detention without due process.

I know the world is eager to stop the spread of COVID-19, as am I. But for those of us who care about our rights and privacy, this is a frightening development.

“The fact is that the modern implementation of the prison planet has far surpassed even Orwell’s 1984 and the only difference between our society and those fictionalized by Huxley, Orwell and others, is that the advertising techniques used to package the propaganda are a little more sophisticated on the surface.
Yet just a quick glance behind the curtain reveals that the age old tactics of manipulation of fear and manufactured consensus are still being used to force humanity into accepting the terms of its own imprisonment and in turn policing others within the prison without bars.”

The wife and I buy wine at the local Wegmans. Since I bag, she unloads and pays. White hair wife, older than me. She has to provide her ID which gets scanned. I am not allowed to touch the wine (bag it) unless I too, show my ID. I can however, put the bag in the cart to haul out to the parking lot. No doubt some lawyer wrote up the procedure. We like wine so we do not make a issue, plus the checkout people are simply doing their job.

I have had my drivers license scanned in - I think its basic information - which is probably what she actually meant and said it how they knew would irritate folks.
I left PA 2.5 years ago - but I can't imagine it is legal for a store clerk to run a license - its tough enough for cops to do. I would call the manager and ask and then say why....
