Ohio Voting: Secretary Of State Refuses To Expand Weekend Voting Until Appeals Court Rules

Ohio Voting: Secretary Of State Refuses To Expand Weekend Voting Until Appeals Court Rules

Commented Sep 5, 2012 at 12:31:25 in Politics

“I noticed some questions as to why Husted restricted voting in the first place. The "ball" on this story got rolling a little bit farther back. Here is a brief history. 2004: voters in predominately Democrat counties are in line for hours to vote and the polls stayed open hours late to accommodate (in some cases) but many voters were discouraged and went home. 2008: early voting is in place and nearly 50% of the voters in those districts voted on the three days prior to the election. 2011: Ohio legislature (Republican run House, Senate and Governor) pass a law stating that the early voting is contingent upon the Secretary of State's approval by county. 2012: Secretary of State Husted approves early voting for the 5 largest Republican voting counties but denies early voting for every Democrat voting county. When blasted for this, Franklin County GOP party leader writes a letter to the Columbus Dispatch stating that they were not going to do anything to help the "read this - African American" voting machine get started. By stating to the press that the tactic was to make it more difficult for black voters to get to the polls, the Obama vs. Husted case was filed and the court found in favor of Obama. Which brings up to this point.”

“How do you propose we define "girl" then? Physically (what the physical body is) or what the child is genetically? And are you looking at the physically exposed organs or the internal sexual reproduction organs? Up to 5 % of the human population either doesn't physically express the sex they are genetically, or their sex chromosomes don't match the typical XY or XX pairing (XXY, XXX, XYY, etc.).

Besides, if the courts can rule that boys organizations must allow girls to join, they why shouldn't girl organizations allow boys to join?”

“Then when is it a Boys club or Girls club ? Presentinng The girl scouts of America along with 5% of humans who aren't sure what they are yet ? I believe your percentage is on the high side. Besides all this, I have a son and a daughter. From very early on my son "Knew" he was a boy-you couldn't have made him wear a dress and the same goes for my little girl. Yes it is an unfortunate thing when a little one is born with both sets of organs, but over time they exibit behaviour that shows what sex they should be. But this case is about the gay community trying to push their agenda with regards to "The Girl Scouts".”

“Maybe, but you do realize that more of the money you pay on medical bills is going into the pockets of the top 1% as profit than is going to pay for the health care of the people who don't have insurance.”

“Health insurers pay 80-99% out in medical premiums, where do you get your #s? medicaid is costing trillions. Non sensical.”

“Many employers these days are increasing out of pocket deductibles to make the care more affordable to the organization. My current insurance has a $3000 deductible before it goes 80/20. Doesn't sound bad until you realize that I only take home $1200 per month so my deductible is almost 25% of my annual income. Additionally, when I go get a physical, the insurance company won't cover any of my lab test for my blood work so I have to pay hundreds of dollars a year for that and since the insurance company doesn't cover those items, then it doesn't count towards my deductible. *sigh* And they wonder why so many people are going bankrupt.”

“What the hell do you do for a living to only make $1,200 a month (net, I assume). Where did you go to college?”
