Im putting together a voting bloc around of 130+ people here in Pittsburgh, we will each vote once at 3 different polling stations, writing in one of our 3 candidates, SPIDERMAN, David Duke and Papa Smurf.
Its just for fun as the public vote has no bearing whatsoever on a presidential election, that has been 100% decided upon by the Electoral Collage since it's founding in 1789 and they will vote for whomever they are paid to vote for.
Just our way of mocking that 74-76% of the American population who have never heard of the Electoral Collage and believe the popular vote decides (LULZ!) the presidency.
Im betting that we can get no fewer than 350,000 write-ins for 'ole Spidey nationwide..Who's with me?!

Every crazed, right wing-nut whack-job who is simply not bright enough to understand the irreproachable logic of the judge in this case. Azzhats like you couldn't organize a couple of drunks in a bar to take a piss in unison... probably because it's logical, rational behavior for adrunk to take a leak!

Just told the clerk in Giant Eagle that I no longer need to show ID to pay with a check. She called that manager. He said that he can't allow me to pay with a check because I didn't show ID. Said I need Giant Eagle card or a Photo ID to use a check. I had to pay for my groceries with cash.(Lucky I had it) Isn't this wrong? I thought ID was no longer necessary? Was I discriminated against? Is this racial? Can the ACLU help? Do we have a case? Any advice?

I thought this ID crap was over????

You only need it if you are white. Blacks gets special treatment, affirmative action, and they do not have to follow the law. They are not required to act white.

The judge's decision, ya' old fool, as you well know, applied only to a brand new photo ID requirement, one specifically dealing with voting, where such a requirement had never before been required in PA, and similarly so in a number of other- and this is the key, in REPUBLICAN controlled states- so that the poor, minorities and seniors, who statistically vote Democratic, are barred from their consitutionslly guaranteed franchise! And as Republican House Majority Leader Turzai specifically stated, electing Willard Romney president was the purpose of enacting these restrictions! Gov. Corbett's own attorneys admitted before the state supreme court, that they could offer absolutely NO evidence of voter fraud that these new restrictions would prevent!

The judge's decision, prompted by that of the state supreme court, deals only with this restrictions on voters... Not check cashing at Giant Eagle, not boarding an aircraft, not doing business at a bank... It deals with voting, and voting alone, you azzhat! It is immoral, clearly designed to yield a partisan gain to the GOP, and would strip one quarter of the PA voters in the Voter's Hall of Fame ( voters who have voted without interruption for 50+ years) from voting! That is shameful, and courts across the land are acting to stop them, in Texas, PA and other states!

Look, if we're going to "spread it around and redistribute" then this requirement must apply to other entities, especially lesser than government interests.

One of the basic tenets of our country is one vote per person. When the laws are set for that basic, then it will apply to all other parts of our society. Kinda' like some stone tablets on a school yard. If one has to go then all have to go. Same with ID. If I can vote without it, then I don't need it anywhere.

It worked yesterday on the bus. I got on with my neighbors and then back off and the driver never said a word to anyone of us. PAT must understand and they're a government agency. It's gonna' be great world.

Good gawd, ya' putz (and thank gawd!), you don't make the laws in the Commonwealth or this nation! And it used to be that free speech was the right of every man in this country, too... until a conservative US Supreme Court in the Citizens United case decided that rich men could buy as much speech as they want, particularly so as to influence elections, in this new electronic age!

Also, ya' old fool... you and your neighbors are a bunch of old farts that get free transit certain times of the day! Jeez, old man, the Alzheimers ain't gettin' any better, is it?

Nope - I used to have to show my card to get a free ride. Most of the Negroes who board with me just get on and off without paying or showing anything. That's what I did yesterday and the driver didn't say anything to me. I got on and off in town without showing anything. Now I don't have to worry anymore.

My neighbor did ask a question though? When the brothers shoot each other, how are the police going to know who they are without ID?

White is not a color... it is the absence of color, you ignorant bigot.

You still didn't answer the question. How are the authorities going to identify the bodies without some form of identification? Or do you honestly think the brothers are going to stop shooting each other.

You progressives really are weird sometimes.

Maybe it's you who don't care. Maybe you don't understand the concept of the mothers wanting to know who got shot today.

Maybe you don't care about the $37,000 ER charge for each of these tribal happenings. I ask again, who do we charge for the ER, the coroner, the ambulance, the gun CC registration if we don't have ID? Tell me how??????????

Again, you arrogant, bigoted azzwipe, it is abundantly clear from your many racist posts that you care not one iota for anyone of color; you question is the height of insincerity, to put it kindly. You're an angry old white man whose only value is that you and your loathsome ilk will drive the GOP into political irrelvancy in a far shorter period of time than you and your fellows can fully appreciate, you ignorant fool! Keep up the good work;the future of America depends on your success at this unintentional, but nonetheless certain goal of your bigotry.
