This whole 'bein' a regular type citizen' thing is getting out of control!
If you've been following this blog for any length of time,you probably know that I've gone to great lengths,since I got out of Corrections,to stay as far off the grid as possible.
Maybe that seems odd,but it's been my experience that once you're in the system,'they' tend to focus an undue amount of attention on your whereabouts,and activities.
I mean,they have all those resources,and way too many toys to play with for my comfort.
Particularly during an administration bent on relegating the Constitution to the 'fiction' section of the Library of Congress.
Well,time passes,as it is wont to do,and my low-profile efforts to put sufficient distance between who I was then,and who I am now seems to have paid off.
I recently had occasion to have a thorough criminal background check done on myself,and it turned up exactly,..nothing!
Zero,..zip,..ain't no such body.
It seems that after nine years of flying pretty much under the radar,my felony conviction has been expunged
from not only the State of Colorado's records,but the FBI's
criminal database as well...I kid you not!
This was my plan.
Given enough time,systems evolve,people come and go in all those low-level, record keeping type government jobs,and priorities shift to more pressing matters.
Simply put,the end result is that it becomes expedient to flush out the old,to make way for the new...
Consequently,I'm taking baby steps to re-enter into the fray.
Not only am I a brand new registered voter,but yesterday I toddled my happy ass on down to the DMV to get me an actual,State of Cal-i-for-ni-a picture ID!
Yep,..I've been navigating the ins and outs of being alive for the last nine years without specifically
being able to identify myself.
It's not as difficult as you might think.
Still,I suppose the ways and means of such a lifestyle might make for an informative pamphlet on the subject.
In the meantime,I plan on enjoying all the rights and benefits of being an actual person.
Hey!..I might even open up one o' them bank accounts I've heard tell about!
You know,..as soon as I get me some money.
