Expired means Expired

Expired Passports, Driver's License etc...should NOT be accepted as valid IDs. Try going to the U.S. boarder and present an expired Passport to inter Canada or Mexico and you wil be turned away. Try presenting an expired Drivers License's to a police officer when you are stopped, it will not be accepted. Try providing an expired ID to the electric, cable, water, gas or other utility and it will NOT be accepted. People are over thinking this issue way to much...the law is clear and must be followed....sometimes a cigar is just a cigar.
