“so, deregulation of industry and off-shoring manufacturing had nothing to do with it? wonder what happened to all those jobs?”

“pure sophistry. that is the same argument the NRA uses for gun owners which allows criminals and the mentally unstable to have guns. It is not discrimination when there is a history of discrimination that continues to this day and is shown that just a few people want to discriminate against others well into the future.
The law SHOULD be flexible enough to allow changes based upon actions. Some of the districts and states covered under the VRA have changed for the better and should be allowed to come out from under it, however, with the recent spate of laws restricting voting some states should now fall under it - i.e. NC (which has districts that fall under the VRA but not the whole state), OH and others.
At the very least, when it comes to elections for national office, there should be federal regulations for ALL states.
Remove it entirely because the south should be treated like the north when it comes to the VRA? Nope. Not until they STOP trying to subjugate and dehumanize minorities. 
It would be more preferable to treat all as the south and preserve voting rights than to allow blatant discrimination when it comes to voting. That way everyones right to vote is protected - no matter what.”

GlennWatson on Jul 4, 2013 at 10:59:22

“There is a history of discrimination in the entire nation, but Congress has fixated on one part of the nation for crimes committed 40 years ago.

There is no more discrimination in the South today that in the North but apparently you want to ignore the discrimination the North. That is understandable. Its much easier to fixate on the sins of others than to take a look into your own heart.

The law SHOULD be the same for all.

I agree that there should be federal regulations for ALL states. But that is not what the Voting Rights Act did and you know it.

The South of today is no more involved in dehumanizing other races than the North. You are not better than us. I know that assertion rocks your world view but its true.”

“I wonder why that would be having special considerations? Could it be because of a history of voter suppression? nah, couldn't be that.”

GlennWatson on Jul 3, 2013 at 15:37:14

“I am sure it is about history. I am talking about 2013 and in 2013 the South should be treated just like the North. Anything else is discrimination

Now if you want to put the entire nation under the authority of the Voting Rights Act then I am with you. But you cannot pick and chose who to punish from the children of those you thing deserve to be punished.”

“ummmm, whose God is good? There are certain behaviors that most belief systems accepts as being good. However, there are others that see those traits as being neutral, or even bad.
My question to you is if your god is good, why are there so many Christian leaders hell bent on war? If they speak for your god, their actions define the belief system. Therefore since they cry for retribution and war in your god's name your god is NOT good in many peoples view - he is evil.
Remember what Ghandi said? 'I like your Christ but I don't like your christians.'”

“I would not stake my life on the belief that good is subjective. It is most absolute and concrete. If you think about it, you will understand that it is true that God alone is good. And he explained, "If you want to enter life, obey the Commandments."”

Scut Farkus on Apr 22, 2013 at 14:30:33

“"you much vaunted free market is why"

How so?

"In 1992, Congress MANDATED that Fannie and Freddie increase their purchases of mortgages for low-income and medium-income borrowers. Operating under that requirement, Fannie Mae, in particular, has been aggressive and creative in stimulating minority gains."

"The two companies are now required to devote 42% of their portfolios to loans for low- and moderate-income borrowers"

"Although Fannie Mae actually has exceeded its target since 1994, it is resisting any hike. It argues that a higher target would only produce more loan defaults by pressuring banks to accept unsafe borrowers."

“You folks seem to have forgotten - these cuts were not discretionary. They were designed to hurt so Congress would come up with a budget to avoid it, which Boehner didnt (the power of the purse rests in the house).

This means that if a department/agency is to cut 20% they have to cut 20% from EVERYTHING - payroll, services, utilities, office supplies, etc. Everything. Boehner had many chances to work out a compromise but refused.”
