    1. No, they don't, unless you are buying alcohol.
    2. Booze is not groceries. So, no.
    Yes they do. Have you ever heard of stolen credit cards?

    • I guess you look like a criminal because they just don't ask for an I.D. unless you are buying a controlled substance and look under age. They used to (like 25 years ago) ask for an I.D. if you wrote a paper check but most places won't even accept those any more.

        I guess you look like a lying liberal.

        At the time of purchase, when a customer swipes their card, the merchant is supposed to compare the signature on the card with the signature on the receipt. In the event that there is a discrepancy, or if the back of the card is unsigned, then merchants are instructed to ask for a photo ID to compare with.
        If your card is unsigned and you’ve left the signature line blank, your card is technically not valid. (The words “not valid unless signed” are on the back there, just next to the signature box.) In that case, both MasterCard and Visa instruct the merchant to ask for your ID, then to ask you to sign the card and make sure that signature matches the one on your ID.

        • I always sigb my card and I literally can't remember the last time I was asked for my I.D.. I usually use debit though.

            They also ask for ID when checking into sleazy motels, or Trump Towers... probably what Trump is thinking of...

              What an utterly moronic response. No they don't.

              The only time they ask for ID is when you buy alcohol.

              And when you pay with cash, they never ask for ID. Trump is a ****ing moron who can't win. And when he's facing obstruction of justice charges in OCTOBER, you'll rethink everything.

                He's a lying piece of **** that beats women (including his ex-wife and possibly his current wife) and he judges people all the damn time.

                In addition, he cheats on his wife with a porn star.

                So much for that sanctity of marriage you conservative drones always talk about. A same sex couple being married is completely wrong in your bigoted eyes, but Trump banging pornstars is perfectly acceptable.

                  I don't see a problem with that. Why should the mayor assist a fascist organization that looks more like the Schutzstaffel? Besides that ICE is violating all sorts of local laws by faking their uniforms to say "police". They are NOT police.

                    Gotta disagree, Giancarlo. The mayor's denials sound, frankly, weaselly. Sorry, but all citizens deserve equal protection under the law. Even the ones who work for ICE.

                    And the victims of ICE... should the police form a protective corridor between the two? What about Americans that want to protect the refugees from ICE? The US law violates international laws and Safe 3rd Country agreements that the US is a signatory. Oh wait, of course... the US no longer follows international agreements.

                    ICE still violates human rights and should be immediately disbanded by the new democratic administration in 2020. Plus as I said they fake uniforms to say police and even knock on doors claiming they are police. This is violating local laws and the trust between communities and local law enforcement (which is on shaky ground already).

                  The police have to do their job. They can't decide who gets police protection. Everyday you show what a horrible citizen you are. People like you are what's wrong with this country. I hope you live in a blue state where you can't contaminate the whole country, only shitholes like Portland.

                  • More news from that shithole, Oregon congressional candidate tweets that the First Lady is a #hoebag that works by the hour. Is that how they get votes in that shithole?

                      Everything is possible in a land where a presidential candidate won who braggged about grabbing women by the *****, who incited his voters to chant "Lock her up", directed at the other presidential candidate and who bragged that he could shoot someone on the street and would still get supported by his followers

                          Look in the ****ing mirror for once. Which impoverished shithole red state do you live in? I bet one that takes more federal money than any other. I live in a state that gives 30% more in federal money than what we get back. Oh and no I will not respect nor recognize a repressive Nazi organization like ICE.

                          You can't even address my points. ICE is breaking local and state laws by misidentifying themselves as local cops. They pissed off local police agencies so much even police chiefs want nothing to do with them. The LAPD has already stated they don't enforce immigration laws and want nothing to do with an agency that has basically impersonated police officers.

                          You are what is wrong with this country, goosestepper. Your blind vile allegiance to Trump and the GOP will bring about genocide if left unchecked.

                            Coming from the poster who specializes in logical fallacies, please stop with the hypocrisy. Trump beats women (look at his exwife), cheats on his wife with porn stars, and says little girls are sexy. And you want to talk about misogyny...
