You just don't have what it takes to roll with the big dogs. You lost due to your greed and racism. You are evil. That's all. All we ask is that you keep your beliefs that try to rewrite history away from the toddlers. Ooops. Too late. Rush Limbaugh released a book aimed at children that tries to rewrite history. Nothing short of vile.

"Indeed, in a column for right-wing clearinghouse WorldNetDaily, longtime conservative activist Phyllis Schlafly acknowledged as much with a defense of North Carolina’s new voting law, which has been criticized for its restrictions on access, among other things. Here’s Schlafly:
“The reduction in the number of days allowed for early voting is particularly important because early voting plays a major role in Obama’s ground game. The Democrats carried most states that allow many days of early voting, and Obama’s national field director admitted, shortly before last year’s election, that ‘early voting is giving us a solid lead in the battleground states that will decide this election.’"
"Schlafly, it should be noted, isn’t the first Republican to confess the true reason for voter-identification laws. Among friendly audiences, they can’t seem to help it.
Last spring, for example, Pennsylvania House Majority Leader Mike Turzai told a gathering of Republicans that their voter identification law would “allow Governor Romney to win the state of Pennsylvania.” That summer, at an event hosted by the Heritage Foundation, former Wall Street Journal columnist John Fund conceded that Democrats had a point about the GOP’s focus on voter ID, as opposed to those measures—such as absentee balloting—that are vulnerable to tampering.“I think it is a fair argument of some liberals that there are some people who emphasize the voter ID part more than the absentee ballot part because supposedly Republicans like absentee ballots more and they don’t want to restrict that,” he said."

Without a doubt, I agree with the concern of absentee voting. I don't like it there and I don't like it here either. Absentee should be strictly for those incapable of making it to the polls and that's it. In Ohio, anybody can vote absentee and it's a bad system.
What your article points out is results and not cause. They state that less time to vote means less Democrat voters. The question is why? Why doesn't it affect Republican voters the same way?
The one thing that came to mind while reading this article is Katrina. All those poor Democrats dragged their azzes to the bus stops and many stayed behind because they were too lazy to leave. It was too inconvenient. Another thing that crossed my mind is responsibility. What party does a responsible person generally vote for? Who do the irresponsible vote for?
After all, most "poor" people don't work. They have all day to vote; more time than working Americans. If results showed that we have a better Democrat turnout if free refreshments are served at the polls, would it be discriminatory not to have free refreshments?
Voting should be somewhat inconvenient. It assures that only those who are serious about elections do vote. There should be no early voting, no dragging people to vote in busses, and no absentee voting unless there were no other choices.

You didn't bother to consider (in your drunken stupor) that you never even read one book from Rush Limbaugh children's or otherwise. You have no idea what Limbaugh wrote or if there was anything in his books that are inaccurate.

Yes, I'm sure Al Gore is laughing himself silly reading all the people he conned into this global warming thing so he and others could get rich. And why not? After all, his mansion uses enough energy to power an average side street in the US and he takes private jets, limos and SUV"s to where he's traveling.
DumBama doesn't seem too concerned about global warming either. His wife takes a separate plane on some of their vacations. Nazi Piglosi? Forget about it. She too insisted that she have her very own plane that traveled from one end of the country to the other every time she went to Washington. That is of course when her family wasn't using the plane for fun rides. Nothing is too good for a Democrat I always say.
Thy name is Democrat. Do as I say--not as I do!
Cost of Iraq war from 2003 to 2008: 589 billion dollars.
HEY! That's almost 300 billion less than DumBama spent in one day with is so-called stimulus (that didn't stimulate anything) bill. Let's see, Iraq over five years, 600 billion. DumBama in one day, 850 billion. Hmmmmm

All religions in America need to lose their tax exemption, no exceptions. Religion is a business selling an insurance product that requires one to die in order to collect on. Talk about a scam. There is no one anywhere that can prove that anyone ever collected the benefit from that insurance sold on a fantasy, plagiarized story. You can't buy your way into heaven by paying into that huge money making industry that doesn't pay a dime on taxes.
#21448 Oct 26, 2013
Most religions are non-profit. Everything they collect they use to support their churches and perhaps some charity. Churches around here are closing down all the time. In fact the Catholic religion is closing down churches all over. Religion is not insurance nor have they ever claimed to be.
I love how you leftists focus on churches out of all the tax-exempt entities in our country.

Here's a subject that gives me thought. There was a time for decades & decades & decades that there was ONE & ONLY ONE day to vote & as far as I can remember, that was fine or at least OK.
Question #1. What was the problem that expanded voting days?(not counting absentee or whatever). Question 2. IF 1 day was OK for so very very long, then expanded to goodness knows how many days depending on where one is (state, county, city or whatever) but now efforts are being made to reduce those days, what's the problem with a compromise number of days?
Lastly, I would be ashamed or embarrassed to think or admit that a photo ID was discriminatory.
That is tantamount to saying that I am too stupid, lazy or lacking support to get an ID every 4-6 yrs. IF I were either of the 1st 2, I shouldn't vote but would still have that right. If the 3rd reason, I would reach out for help to vote. It isn't like there isn't time to plan. To NOT plan would bring one back around to reasons 1 & 2...stupid & or lazy....duh
#21450 Oct 26, 2013
The Catholic Church & it's hospitals, soup kitchens etc make it one of the largest 5 if not the largest charity in this country depending on how one compile the comparitive info & yet the Catholic Church is very often the target of denigration.
#21451 Oct 26, 2013
In the 2008 election only 64% of eligible voted in the Presidential election. For people that work long hours, or with limited transportation options, additional days of voting give them more of an opportunity to cast a vote.
Why is the effort being made to reduce the number of days? It is being done for a very partisan reason, to suppress the vote of those that tend to vote for Democrats.
Of course, you would have to do NOTHING AT ALL to vote. Like me, you already have a photo ID, a driver's license. But not everyone does. The elderly, the young, and poor people are less likely to have a photo ID. That is the reason that Republicans are pressing for them, not any demonstrated voter fraud.(If they were primarily concerned with voter fraud, they would eliminate absentee voting, which is much more likely to be abused.)
"Belatedly, federal Judge Richard Posner has arrived at the obvious conclusion about voter identification laws: They are enacted as a barrier to the franchise, an un-American tactic hatched by conservatives to prevent certain people from voting. It's too bad that his epiphany came so late.
Posner is one of the nation's most respected conservative jurists. As a judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 7th Circuit, he might have led the nation's highest court to reject new restrictions around voting. Instead, in 2007, Posner wrote the majority opinion that upheld Indiana's stringent law, setting the stage for the U.S. Supreme Court to reason that it did no harm to an unfettered franchise.
That was quite wrong, as Posner now acknowledges. While he disavowed his earlier endorsement of the law in a new book, "Reflections of Judging," he went further in a video interview earlier this month with The Huffington Post, saying that the dissenting view was the right one.
In that dissent, the late Judge Terence Evans wrote: "Let's not beat around the bush: The Indiana voter photo ID law is a not-too-thinly-veiled attempt to discourage election-day turnout by certain folks believed to skew Democratic.""

One of the reasons Democrats claim discrimination is because blacks per capita have more felons than whites. Of course, they won't say that, but it's the truth. They also have more people with outstanding warrants as well; not that getting a voter ID would get them nabbed, but it would probably deter some of them from getting an ID because it would show where you live.
Bottom line is that liberals use the race card to get what they really want, and that is people still cheating the system. For years our voting places have asked for ID in the past. No problem. I just show them my ID.
What about people with no ID? Who can survive in todays world without identification? How does one cash a check, start a checking or savings account, purchase alcohol or get on an airplane?
Most states make it convenient and even free to get an ID. All you have to do is pick it up. As for the excuse that some may not have transportation, I say if you told them they won $5,000 in a sweepstakes, but they had to produce an ID to get the check, you'd see how fast they would find a way to get identification.

The story of "Rush Revere" involves Rush and his horse Liberty traveling through time. Seems totally "accurate", wouldn't you say?
He also uses the same character on his ice tea product he just released. Pop some Oxy to that one, fat boy.

The racist part is you didn't cry a peep when Bush inflicted his "tyrannical" "Socialist" expansion of Medicare. Now when a black man does it...
#21456 Oct 26, 2013
I strongly believe that the #1 reason for any low election turn out is voter apathy. You know' the MY vote won't matter or They're all a bunch of crooks, or None of them are any good attitudes, etc etc.
Of course not everyone has an ID so IF Dems & Repubs shuttle voters to the polls every election, so why not shuttle them to get their FREE ID which is good for yrs & yrs?
I repeat that anyone that can not make arrangements to get an ID is either lazy or stupid or apathetic. That thought segues to saying that many Dems are the stupid, lazy or apathetic ones IF such laws affect primarily Dems. NOT trying to mean, it just seems to boil down that way.
As far as absentee voters, what about those in a nursing home or hospital but still of sound mind or home care or on vacations or business trips that take them over seas, working in mines, on oil rigs, missionaries, or in the military etc?
With most polling stations open from 6am to 6pm there is a weaker excuse for simply, "not being able to make it to the polling booth". So lets extend the times from 5am to 8pm. It would be part of the K.eep I.t S.imple S.tupid method.

And that's what you consider racist? No wonder you libs are constantly using the word. You don't even know what it means yet.
When have I ever said that I supported Bush's Medicare expansion? Better still, what conservative radio or television host ever supported it? Conservatives are against most all government expansion.
