This is how that should have read.

Nevermind George Soros and the unions funding the democrats and their liberal causes. The Koch Brothers' contributions pale in comparison.

Harry Reid and the democrats won't bring that up.

That's laughable Flacko. SS and SSA are not deposited in advance you stupid fk.

People move and in some cases precincts voting places move, that's where the problems lie__not with death.

My son's name was on the list at my voting place for eight years after he moved away and registered elsewhere..I told them for a couple of years and then just laughed about it.

The Florida system is imperfect as are the systems elsewhere__mistakes are made, mistakes that are supposed to balance out__improper voting occurs that we're told balances out.

Voting will never be perfect__because politicians are involved, politicians who are always on the lookout for an edge.

And speaking of edges__Florida Lottery officials are temporarily suspending several retailers in SoFLA while they investigate the 36 time lotto winner.

Nothing's perfect pal.

Colbert Skewers Bill O'Reilly's Bizarre Defense Of Inequality

Spotlighting a Tuesday rant from the Fox host's "The O'Reilly Factor," Colbert took a moment on Thursday night's show to praise O'Reilly's unique take on racial and economic inequality in America.(Short version: it's pointless to fight it.)

Ostensibly beginning as a critique of the liberal agenda to reduce income inequality, O'Reilly's lecture soon took a bizarre turn.

"Each human being is born with abilities, but they are not equal abilities," the Fox host said. "I will never have physical equality with my fellow Irishman, Shaquille O'Neal! He's bigger and stronger than I am, by nature."

Colbert called O'Reilly's logic airtight: "Trying to achieve equality is unnatural! I mean take income inequality — Shaquille O'Neal is taller than Bill O'Reilly, therefore the richest 1 percent of Americans should control 40 percent of the nation's wealth."

Summing up, Colbert seized on O'Reilly's declaration: "There will never be equality in this world, it's impossible! An opium-laced dream!"

"Yes!" shouted Colbert, "I believe that's what Dr.[Martin Luther] King was talking about in his,'I Have An Opium-Laced Dream' speech!"

<quoted text>but when they have to tie into gov't databases why is it it never works like that?
again, you silly id of just having an ID would do no good...there would have to be a statewide, realtime data base and even a national one for your supposition that people vote across state lines, thus meaning the feds would be involved in state election processes.
and remember, those data bases must be continuously be maintained and updated and rebuilt as new operating systems are being used by the rest of the world...
now if you are willing to do this just to stop the two cases of voter fraud you have documented that this dramatic step would prevent then you are nuts.
states are already cooperating with each other without the involvement of the federal government, using existing data bases.....

the federal government has already demonstrated their incompetence using data bases....

What about life insurance for single income households? I suppose you socialists next will mandate everyone has life insurance (and only the plans you prescribe)?

After all, if the single income household person employed dies, then what about "those" unplanned expenses, socialist?

How about short & long-term disability for 20 year olds, socialist?

Shouldn't Obama & the Socialist Party of yours micromanage all insurance, libtard?

OH the irony!!

Did GOP/Fox News Plan Fort Hood Shooting To Distract From ObamaCare Success?

As the March deadline for enrollment in the Affordable Care Act (aka ObamaCare) arrived, the White House proudly revealed that it had surpassed the goal of seven million enrollments set by the Congressional Budget Office. It was a target that many thought to be out of reach following the technical glitches that plagued the program’s Internet rollout. Under ordinary circumstances, such an achievement would have dominated the news for several days. The positive glow from having succeeded when most predicted failure could have permanently altered the public perception of ObamaCare which was already trending more positively in recent polls.

The very next day there was a horrific reprise of a deadly shooting at the Fort Hood army base in Texas that has sucked up every ounce of airtime across the television dial. Coincidence?

Of course it is. To be clear, there is absolutely no chance that either the Republican Party or Fox News had any part in orchestrating the Fort Hood shooting, despite the admittedly sensational headline of this article. This has been a demonstration of how Fox News would have responded if the news about ObamaCare was negative and some other news event pushed the bad news out of the spotlight. Fox would have objected strenuously to the media giving the President a pass rather than drooling over a potential White House flop.

This is not conjecture. It is precisely how Fox News has behaved in the past when they alleged that everything from the minimum wage to Syria to immigration reform were deliberate efforts to distract the public from the health care law when it appeared to be in trouble. It seemed like it would just be a matter of time before some rightist conspiracy nut (probably Glenn Beck) would come up with an alien baby for Sarah Palin as an excuse to avoid discussing ObamaCare.

....The GOP and Fox News certainly did not plan the Fort Hood shooting, but they gladly exploit it for their own partisan self-interests. So don’t expect to hear any more about the seven million ObamaCare enrollments on Fox, unless it is to claim that the numbers are fake. Ultimately this will leave Fox viewers in the dark again when everyone but them knows the truth about ObamaCare and everything else that actually happens in this world.

that would possibly deter illegal from trying to register also, as that would be one more way they could be caught out as being here illegally.
California uses drivers licenses for jury duty rolls, whether registered to vote or not.....the jury questionnaire then asks about citizenship......not sure whether they also use voter registration rolls......

Adam, you are arguing with a person who would staunchly say the sky is not blue and you have no proof it is if you made the claim. The person does not attempt to debate issues-just stonewalls when not asking a series of questions without offering anything of value in return.

With the pre-existing condition provision, one doesn't have to purchase insurance. Simply pay the fine until you need medical care. The fine, cough tax, is much less than insurance premiums.

Time to put a cork in it and require an ID to vote. Simple solution. Perhaps too simple and too effective. Why democrats are freaking out.
no, not simple and not effective at all, as has been clearly shown here.

voter Id would not stop even one of the cases of documented voter fraud in the US. and it would cost millions per state.

this is why real conservatives are against it.

".. Investigators were also looking into Lopez's psychological background. He had sought help for depression, anxiety and other problems, military officials said.
"We have very strong evidence that he had a medical history that indicates unstable psychiatric or psychological condition," Milley said. "We believe that to be a fundamental underlying cause."..."
if any of that ass-covering were true, then why did they allow him to remain on duty???.....
