Letters To Ed :-)

"We've been duped by the Republicans. Kentucky Sen. and minority leader Mitch McConnell in a news conference one day after the election, stated that the single and sole goal of the GOP over the next two years is: to make Barack Obama a single term president. What an arrogant and obnoxious goal and statement. There agenda before the election was to get votes by promising that there first goals were jobs, the economy and health care reform. It seems their goal is to grab power, not to do things for the people that are in need of jobs and or unemployment pay, health care for those that don't have it, and the people losing their homes. This is the same party that wanted the auto plants and their suppliers to go out of business. We are just coming back from what they did to this country, and now we have them back to do the same things to our country again. What a mess the next two years is going to bring to this country. Talk about partisanship." Carl D. Leow Rogers Cit

"Most striking of all, Judge Ramos found that the rapid growth of Texas’s Latino and black population, and the state’s “uncontroverted and shameful history” of discriminatory voting practices — including whites-only primaries, literacy restrictions and actual poll taxes — led to a clear conclusion: Republican lawmakers knew the law would drive down turnout among minority voters, who lean Democratic, and they passed it at least in part for that reason. Judge Ramos’s finding of intentional discrimination is important because it could force Texas back under federal voting supervision, meaning changes to state voting practices would have to be preapproved by the federal government. (Texas appealed the ruling; a federal appeals court is now considering whether to put it on hold until after the election.)"

"Voter ID laws, as their supporters know, do only one thing very well: They keep otherwise eligible voters away from the polls. In most cases, this means voters who are poor, often minorities, and who don’t have the necessary documents or the money or time to get photo IDs.

In her remarkable 143-page opinion in the Texas case, Federal District Judge Nelva Gonzales Ramos found that the law violated both the Equal Protection Clause and the Voting Rights Act, and that by forcing registered voters to track down and pay for qualifying documents, it functioned as an “unconstitutional poll tax.”

The GOP voter suppression worked, now they are in control. Funny thing is, all the Democrats have to do is step back. Ricky Ricardo Cruz has already declared war on McConnell, so he is going to do all the Democrats heavy lifting.

Once again, it's Real World versus Living Room World. Leave your living room, drive to an inner city, see how few of them have cars, overcome your racism.

Welcome back Nobo. I needed someone to save. I hope you haven't been in jail. Yes for wolf season. No for DNR control and if you live in Onaway, yes for marijuana decriminalization.

JaxSap quote: "Republicans are afraid of blacks, and they know these people have no transportation..."

Huh? Are they even human in your mind? You're pathetic.

Democrats realize that voter fraud will always benefit their side. Take a wild guess why that is. No desire whatsoever to control it or put in place mechanisms for discovering it. Honest folks of every color are finally starting to see that.

But black folks can't get ID's or transportation? Is there anything you would give them credit for?

Guess what, you're no better or more capable than any black person. When you realize that, perhaps you can get beyond your real racism, and the racism of your disgusting party.

If black people don't have any transportation and can't get ID's, that must be why the Motor Voter law was so important.

I'll ask again, how did you get to be so stupid, and why are you a democrat?

All I asked you to do is explain how a person living in inner city projects was going to get transportation to the county clerk's office to get a photo ID. You could not answer it. For the 3rd time today, RS is shot down.

Georgia reports people leaving voting lines because of long waits while poll workers fumble to check IDs. The GOP plan of voter suppression is working to perfection!

Obviously, because of your fear of black people, you have never been to an inner city. Drive down to Detroit, put your racism aside, and see what it's like there. Or is your fear of blacks stopping you?

Just one. "All you have to do, you poor soul, is name one election won by fraud. Just name the election and the facts to back it up. Just one. "

Howdy folks, its been a while. Hey what are your thoughts on prop 14-1 and 14-2 I'm sort of on the fence on this one. Do we really need this? Just looking for a little input before I go vote.

The Charlotte Observer has some questions for O'Keefe. Will he answer them? No. "A few questions for O’Keefe and his supporters:

• How heavily and selectively did you edit the video? How many campaign workers did you not include in the video because they did not give you the answer you were looking for?

• How does this demonstrate voter fraud? If you want to show voter fraud, shouldn’t you film an illegal immigrant voting, not asking a campaign worker if it’s OK to vote?

• Do you expect campaign workers to act as voter-law enforcement? Did any election official, state or local, act improperly?

The videos appear to show campaign workers acting improperly. But O’Keefe’s work has been discredited before, including by the California attorney general’s office and the U.S. Government Accountability Office. Some healthy skepticism when viewing the Charlotte videos is in order."

"Black people are beginning to see who the real racists are"

You mean that one black theology major from a second tier college you became enamored with? That one? HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

Let's see here - Romney won NC. Are you saying there was fraud of some sort?

Poor RS, tries so hard, gets shot down at every turn.

All you have to do is go into every major city in America, go in to their inner cities, and take people to get their photo IDs. Not going to happen, as I stated, Republicans are afraid of blacks, and they know these people have no transportation, hence the suppressive voter ID laws which are being struck down at every turn.
