here you go again:I've read countless ignorant, biased, obnoxious comments here from Fetch, mostly about Wisconsin politics and his belief that "Union thugs" are the force behind the recall efforts against Scott Walker. I have no union affiliation, know no one who does, yet I will be thrilled to see that corrupt, arrogant, Koch brothers ass-kissing, college drop out kicked out of the governors mansion. My problem with Walker has very little to do with his attack on collective bargaining, and most of the people I know that want him out feel the same way.
There is another thing that concerns me: Why, Fetch, do you claim that you have a personal stake in what happens politically in Wisconsin? Why are you so interested in what happens here? Didn't you state, just a few days ago, that you and your wife voted in the Kentucky primary? Is it that you can't get anyone in your "real life" to listen to your teabagger ramblings so you come on here to bore the rest of us with it? I think most of us that read/comment here have a real, personal reason why we are so interested in what is happening in Wisconsin. We live here, vote here, and are directly affected by what happens here. All the insults, false fact stating, and bullying just distracts from what is truly important. And for those of you that post here because you truly have something to gain or lose with this recall election...I appreciate your honesty and integrity.
A Nice story to remind inept Wisconsinites that we need to have ID when voting.
Yesterday, my wife and I voted in the Kentucky primary election. Since the apparent candidates for President were Mitt Romney and Barack Obama, voter turnout was very low. When we showed up at the poll shortly after it opened, the ladies behind the table asked to see our driver’s license.
In talking to the three poll workers, I learned that they have required a photo ID for years. I asked one of them if anyone had ever complained about having to show a photo ID. One of the ladies told me that she has been working the poll here for years and had never had anyone complain about having to present a photo ID. I asked if they ever had any dead people voting here and she told me not in HER precinct and then told me that they do their best to prevent any voter fraud from taking place here.
Would it surprise you to hear that the precinct I vote in is predominantly Republican? No one in our area feels that they are being discriminated against for having to show a photo ID in order to vote. We have plenty of minorities, especially blacks and Hispanics, but they don’t complain about having to show a photo ID to vote. We also have low income and elderly on fixed incomes in our area, but again, they don’t complain about showing a photo ID.
In fact, many of the people in this area believe that voting is not only a right but an obligation and that if you don’t vote, you don’t have any right to complain or gripe about the government or the politicians.
What I don’t understand is why Democrats are so strongly against requiring voters to show a photo ID. The only possible explanation I can think of is to allow them to abuse and violate voting laws such as voting for dead people, voting for someone who they know won’t be voting, etc. Perhaps this is the only way they believe they can win elections.
But not in my precinct! No dead people voting here!
