“So what is your point? That young black men who do not want to participate in society - go to the doctor, get a job, cash a check, go to a bar with an ID are disadvantaged but want to vote? or that you resent there may be a national ID as a citizen?”

“The story was about young minorities and that is why I mentioned that point.”

“My point in your case is that you just made my point for me. When you think of a requirement for a photo ID in order to vote, you automatically think of a young black man who 'does not want to participate in society.'
You are not thinking at all of other citizens who may be unncesssarily put out to meet some ridiculous regulation that only the GOP are jumping up and down about, and they have no grounds for doing so. There is NO evidence of widespread voter fraud. NONE. Not even they can come up with proof, and yet they claim that is the basis for all this nonsense. And you use young black men as an example-- that's about as telling as it gets.
In case you hadn't noticed, a photo ID such as a driver license is not proof of citizenship, which makes it even more stupid.
And yes, I think a national ID is a bad idea: have you never heard of passports? I thought the GOP was always claiming they're trying to make government less redundant. What could be more redundant than to make people get a national ID when they already have social security cards, birth certificates and passports if they travel?”
“Gosh I can think of about a million things that were not required before but are now -....starting with healthcare, seat belts, helmets on bicycles, insurance, tax on everything....want to go one. That is a lame argument about just because you did not have to have it before?
The elderly person does need a doctor or a hospital (ID required), rides mass transit maybe and needs ID to get discounted fare, how do they cash or deposit a check. Free in PA for ID if you can't afford the $12”

“So can I think of them and it isn't the point. The point is that there is no REASON to require photo ID, and that it will put some members of our citizenry to unnecessary difficulty to obtain one.
In case you didn't know, you can get bank accounts and so on with a social security card and birth certificate, and both forms of ID are valid for many other things as well. No photo ID required.
Are you completely unaware of the law? There is no law in the United States that requires ANYONE to have a photo ID as merely a citizen.”
“I've heard these and others reviewing these statistics. These are the same people that want their DAUGHTERS to go to the best college, get the best education and start careers. I (as a breadwinner) find all this ironic.”

“Lies and the Lying Liars who Tell them.
This is sick America - Pathetic - Unworthy of us
and the DEMOCRAT party exists on falsehood, the American Media perpetuates the Falsehood.
And the DEMOCRAT votes live within a bubble where the truth will never enter.
Is this. .... blah blah blah
Goes both ways!”

“High Education is a business just like any other. Their sole purpose of their business is to get you in school and keep you there as long as they can. Just look at the greats (Steve Jobst) who never finished college because they were smart enough to figure that out. Bloated salaries by tenured profs, administration, and especially sport coaches all need to keep the "6-years" for a four-year education.
The new college graduates think they should be landing 6-figure jobs when they get out. They do not want to start at the bottom and work their way up, the same way their grandparents did.”
“Why should I feel sorry for people who bought more than they could afford to pay? If you could not afford going to the prestigious school, why not a state school or community college for a few years. Maybe finish your education at that big ticket university.”
“There have been 17 government shutdowns since 1977 and overwhelmingly they have been Democrats causing the shutdown. The GOP will be to blame because of the media spin. The cause is partisan by the Dems. Keep saying the GOP will suffer, say it long enough it becomes the truth whether or not it is.”

"Glover Park's lobbying on behalf of Solyndra may have been limited by lobbying industry standards. And Mistri's involvement, as one of four officials working on the account, was likewise far from extensive."
May have been....because it never happened. These headlines are just self-promoting to the writer.”

“I heard this jobs plan will put 2 million people back to work. Can I get that job? I figure with $450 billion dollars that comes to $225,000 per person. Why not just give us all a big fat check we can spend back into the local economy?”

Her law degree was from Oral Roberts, and I doubt that she really has any "tax law" degree, since none is offered by William & Mary, as she claims. Obama, on the other hand, earned his law degree from Harvard.”

“To me it's not about her knowledge it's about the reason behind her lack of knowledge.... She doesn't care about those things because American history and the foundations of our democracy are not important to her. Only her religiosity, self-righteousness and fervent anti-regulation/tax beliefs are what matter to her. She doesn't want to be president of the US, she wants to be president of the people who agree with her.”

“What does that matter? If tommorow means I have to go plant the garden to eat, I will do that.
I am just pointing out that capitalism only works when there are infinate resources. The planet does not have this. It is a beautiful place that will take care of us all if it is not destroyed. You cannot have constant growth - there is only so much oil, water, land”
“When will the people wake up and see this "immigration" issue is just MODERN DAY SLAVERY. It may be better than where they came, but they are slaves to the rich that hire them because they are too cheap. Treat them awful because they know they cannot complain. We keep looking the other way and saying they are doing work Americans do not want to do. They can only find housing in the worst parts of our cities because a real rental property is going to check your credit.
Stop them from coming in. Open the gates to more coming in legally so they can have a good life. Figure out what to do with families who have worked and are willing to become citizens, learn English and pay taxes.”
“Agree, but I never hear anyone complain that Baseball Players, or Movie Actresses or Rock Singers get paid millions for their 'hard' work either.
Reese Witherspoon gets $20 Million for One Picture? Tiger Woods still makes $110 Million a Year, A-Rod $27.5 million, Messi gets $44 million for Soccer (Football), Barbara Streisand makes $60 mil a year and Madonna $72 mil on the last few years.
Makes $9 million for being a CEO for 365 days a year seem paltry. Ha and my salary - wow miniscule!”
The congress decides to raise the Age limit to collect SS, then the Government Employees (Local, State & Fed) should also be required to work until that age as well. (There should be some exceptions like hazardous occupations). Why should they get to retire early (some as low as 50 & 55) then get to go back to work for another government agency and double dip?”
Mara de Tuesta on Apr 18, 2011 at 14:37:38
“Makes sense. The double dipping taking place in AZ is scandalous, and a betrayal of all its citizens who subsidize not only the pensions but the doubled dipping salaries. Some fairness needs to prevail. Don't know how, but hope those smarter than me can make some wise decisions.”
“My 'housekeeper' comes twice a week. She said $60.00 to clean the house and it should take 2-3 hours. Anywhere from $20-30/hour. When she brings her son with her and he watches the DVD's, she takes 4 hours, but she still gets the $60.00 (She can report this income if she choses). Do I owe her $120 when she works 4 hours or $80?”
“I really appreciated your article. What the other's who post anything that includes Bad-Fox, Evil-Limbaugh, Crazy-Beck don't get is--- all the good help is coming from people and companies - not the government. Americans are generous (even mean old capitalists like myself). No one is born with a stamp on their forehead - DEMOCRAT, REPUBLICAN, INDEPENDENT. You story did not identify the party these people who help others are. I am assuming they are all of the parties.
