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

Jaxsap isn't nearly articulate enough to tell us how he got to be so stupid or why he's a Democrat.

He's most adept at showing and demonstrating that stupidity...which coincidentally and simultaneously, explains why he's a Democrat.

The reasons for the Republican gains are not voter ID laws, racism or any other half baked ideas the left comes up with.

Simply put, the democratic base was not motivated to turn out because they don't feel the need to perpetuate the lack of action taken by their party. Harry Reid has obstructed congressional action for years. Members of his own caucus have complained that they can't defend their votes because they've not taken any. So they have to go home and defend doing nothing. You can't pin that on the Republicans.

I won't even address Bill Moyers... I mean, come on.

Seems like the only time they get the attention is when the democrats are in trouble. They, (the African American community), are the most loyal voting block in U.S. history and they deserve better than what they've gotten. Don't blame voter laws for their lack of turn out. THAT BIRD DON'T FLY..... TURKEY.

Since you asked jaxspp, business is flat. Costs are up and net profits are down. Health care is an issue for my employees going forward. (Most mandates have been deferred until after the midterms).

My customers are not expanding their businesses.

Those are facts. Hurts me and the people that work for me.

Voting - African American voters feel like pawns. Their economic condition has crashed and burned under the "Obama economy". Facts, what the heck, they just confuse people.

Facts, what the heck, they just confuse some people.

The post was from Bill Moyers. Not The Washington Times. Not World Net Daily. Not Breitbart. Not Rush. Not Hannity. Not Fox.

"In the last midterms in 2010, 200,000 voters cast ballots during the early voting days now cut, according to a recent court decision. In 2012, 700,000 voted during those days, including more than a quarter of all African-Americans who voted that year. In 2012, 100,000 North Carolinians, almost one-third of whom were African-American, voted using same-day registration, which was not available this year. And 7,500 voters cast their ballots outside of their home precincts that year."

"In the North Carolina Senate race, state house speaker Thom Tillis beat Senator Kay Hagen by a margin of 1.7 percent, or about 48,000 votes.

At the same time, North Carolina’s voters were, for the first time, voting under one of the harshest new election laws in the country — a law that Tillis helped to craft. Among other changes, the law slashed seven early voting days, eliminated same-day registration and prohibited voting outside a voter’s home precinct — all forms of voting especially popular among African-Americans. While it is too early to assess the impact of the law this year, the Election Protection hotline and other voter protection volunteers reported what appeared to be widespread problems both with voter registrations and with voters being told they were in the wrong precinct yesterday.

Some numbers from recent elections suggest that the magnitude of the problem may not be far from the margin of victory..."

By the way, Fact-Free, how's business in the Obama economy? Probably pretty good. You may have seen RS crashed and burned, and is blaming the government instead of his own lack of business skills. Go visit his website, Politicutandpaste, weigh in with people of your own narrow mindset.

Posted 301 days ago.

Still waiting for RS to post an election where voter fraud changed the outcome. Just one. Or is it possible the voter ID law is a solution to a non-existent problem?

Posted 301 days ago.

There is a reason these voter ID laws are being overturned, I'll let you two figure them out. It has nothing to do with me. Read the court decisions.

Freeman, I believe that people demeaning the poor goes beyond political affiliation. It only gets worse when politics get involved. Look at Florida where a 90 year old man may go to jail because he was feeding the hungry in a public place. Who makes such laws? What creates such a mindset?

SOME DEMOCRATS BELIEVE.... NOT ALL!

Nobo - The democrats believe that minorities and poor people are to stupid to accomplish that simple task of obtaining a voter ID.

All the while not applying the same standard to social benefits, (SNAP, housing assistance, etc.).

It is just another excuse.

Amos, I that that as long as its me, not my wife, not my children, not my doctor or my lawyer making an informed decision on the length and quality of life I am to endure then yes, I should be allowed to choose when to end my own suffering. But having said that I would require the input from all those mentioned above and more. Such a decision is at once deeply personal and potentially crushing to the people you love most. Death will come to us all at one time or another - I prefer not to know. But if knowing is unavoidable and written-in-stone certain then let me choose the when and how. Just my own thought on the matter Amos

Jax, What's wrong with voter ID laws? I had to show ID to vote yesterday - that's how they knew I was a resident and entitled to my vote. I felt good plunking down my ID and having my say on how and who runs my government. To say that requiring ID is raciest is of itself racist and socially demeaning to the poor - who by the way are masters of minimalistic survival and very capable of doing what it takes whether it be getting a drivers license, applying for welfare and food stamps, or waiting on a long commodities line for a little extra to get by. Just because a person is poor does not make them incapable of jumping through government hoops - I would say it's just the opposite. They are masters of jumping through government hoops. Getting a voters ID is Childs play

I went No and No on the wolf question. They were hunted to extinction in Michigan and only reintroduced 12 years ago. The wolves we have are part of some hippy wet dream of rebuilding a natural predation system to control deer overpopulation - it was a total failure and now they want to legislate a solution at the expense of the tax payer and to the decimation of a relatively new and barley self-sustaining wolf population. Michigan wolves are about as much of a challenge to hunt as your neighbors German Sheppard and produce No edible meat - unless you are an Asian with a cultural history of eating dogs. So - No and No - I don't trust government that the job is needed or them to administer it.

Hiya Amos, No, I wasn't in jail, didn't go to the Congo or cruise down the Amazon to save the rainforest. I just got tired of the bickering on this forum and decided I would prefer to lurk for a while. At 58 I'm not exactly old but not young either and if I did become really ill with a life ending disease and had the option to choose my own end would I? Wow! What a question! I'll have to think on this a bit and get back to ya.
