Voting laws apply equally to Republicans, Democrats, independents, La Rouchies, or whomever.

They're not, as jack continues to highlight for us. That's the unfortunate truth.

Indeed it is. Do you believe he actually had the chutzbah to say this?

That's the same type of rationale that was probably used to justify the imposition of the Poll Tax. Because, after all, the Poll Tax applied equally to Republicans, Democrats and Independents too, didn't it?

And it's so blatantly transparent, too. 'Cause you know if it was something that disproportionately affected Republican voters, the conservative media would have completely lost their shit. Instead, there's no attempt to legitimize it, no attempt to justify or explain any of the rationale behind it, just a simple "welp... too bad."

This affects voters of all persuasions equally, and absolutely no one is being 'denied' the right to vote, no matter how many times you say it.

No they are being denied per say, they are being blatantly prevented using asinine excuses.

I meant to say, "aren't", but you cannot deny that they are doing their damnedest to prevent and discourage voting.

Why would any office holder discourage voting? Voting is, after all, what keeps them in office.

I believe we've already gone down this road before and I was able to give you several examples of Republican's deliberately trying to obstruct or hinder voting. IIRC,"Scorpion" called it my "best post ever".

No, it doesn't. It effects those who don't meet the requirements, which has been empirically proven to disproportionately effect Democratic voters (poor, minorities, etc).

And again, no justification for making these individuals go through extra hoops (let alone a discussion about if they're able) to do what was perfectly acceptable before these laws went into place. Just a quiet, callous "too bad".

Yeah, I didn't think you were that dense. At least now we all know you're just playing stupid.

Quote :
Veteran had to pay for voter photo ID

World War II veteran Darwin Spinks is wondering why he had to pay $8 to get a voter photo ID that should have been free when he recently went to the driver's license testing center here.

The state Legislature passed a law this spring requiring voters to show a photo ID in order to cast a ballot. It included the requirement that any Tennessee resident who didn't have a photo ID could get one free of charge.

But when the 86-year-old Spinks visited the testing center about a month ago on Samsonite Boulevard to get a photo ID for voting purposes, he said he had to pay.

Providing IDs for free (with rebate).

How is this not a poll tax?

Iraq War Vet Critically Injured In Oakland Protest

I've got to admit that I was a skeptic, and somewhat am still skeptical of this movement, however I do not like the way public officials have handled themselves in dealing with these people.



Also, Occupy Chicago is sharing that "The CPD have informed protesters that they are not part of the public because they are holding signs. We are being forced to march in circles or risk being ticketed."

Tell me when the last time they made those Westboro Baptist sons of bitches march in circles.

Jean Quan's Statement to Occupy Oakland

The comments are a hoot! Almost a unanimous call for the Democrat-turned-Fascist mayor to resign. Funny, I thought the conservatives were screaming that this was Democrat-sponsored...

It appears that this bunch is planning some disruption in a few major cities on May Day. Well, maybe they are .... but only if the weather is nice.
