“To get a NC non-driver ID, you can go to any driver license office and apply. You will need the same proof of age and identity as if you were applying for a first-time driver license. The current fee for an ID card is just $10.”

“I seem to remember a lady in Ohio being sentenced to jail for voting more than once and voting for other people as well. There is voter fraud and we all know it. As for college students voting can you find one out of 100 who don't have driver's licenses? We have to have ID go board a plane, rent a car, cash a check everywhere you go you are asked for ID. The right most sacred in this country is the right to vote. Protecting it is everyone's job.”

“Students? Students under 16 can't vote. How many students over 16 don't have a driver's license? How many times should a person be allowed to vote 1? 3? 7? every time someone votes who is not allowed to vote they cancel out a legal vote. If you are a legal voter, you should have no problem with having to show an ID. All states provide legal ID. How do you cash a check without legal ID? How do young people buy liquor without legal ID? This is not cynicism .... this is facing the fact that dead people vote and people have gone to jail for voting more then once and prisoners who have lost their right to vote were allowed to vote ...... along with keeping the military from getting their voting ballots on time to keep them from voting when they lay their lives on the line every day for us. Many reasons to have voter ID .... no one is trying to disenfranchise anyone who is a legal voter.”

realpolitic on Aug 13, 2013 at 16:15:00

“Again, where is your evidence of voter fraud when even Republicans admit it is very rare and we are talking about college students voting who are over 18 and not high school students? Think!”

There are arguments on both sides of the gun debate. There were blacks who fought in the Revolutionary War and blacks who fought in the Civil War. There are blacks protecting our freedom today. The fact remains that something written on a piece of paper will not keep anyone intent on evil from committing that evil. When you are in danger, where is the nearest policeman who can protect you? It's not up to the police or even the government to protect us. That we must do for ourselves. It's not only our right, but our duty to protect ourselves and those around us. I am 77 years old. If I am threatened, isn't it my right to protect myself in whatever way I can?”

OohWee on Jan 12, 2013 at 22:24:58

“Yes, it is your right. But it's not necessary for you to have a gun that can unload a hundred bullets in a minute to do so. How many people do you know that you would trust with having access to military grade weapons and thousands of rounds of ammunition? Have you considered that this whole problem is being driven by manufacturers of guns and bullets and holsters...that want to sell more guns and bullets and holsters as opposed to people really being or feeling unsafe? These instances of violence are awful but do we put guns into the hands of more people or try and make our society and individuals more responsible? I'm in California, and a 16 year old brought a shot gun to school this week and injured several people. Why does a 16 year old have access to a gun?”

“Actually there is a very simple cure for hiccups. My daughter told me about it and it works every time. It takes a bit of concentration, but that is all. Since you hiccup because your diaphragm is spasming, you have to relax your diaphragm ... just sit down and completely relax every muscle in your abdomen and chest. This does take concentration, but it works and the spasms will stop immediately. Hope this helps someone.”

“And how much of your $150 did you give to help someone else, especially someone who was willing to give his life for you? So this young man got $13,000 .... so what? It was given to him from friends and family. He chose to use some of it to help someone else. Good job, young man. I'd be proud to have you for a son.”

But I agree with you. I'd be proud to have this kid as my son too. And it would be much easier to get a loan from him than from a bank!”

“Failed policies might include: Many millions of tax dollars to green energy companies that went bankrupt. Cash for clunkers that only ruined the used car market and having to subsidize electric cars that are not practical for the average family even if they could afford them. Shutting down many auto dealerships putting an average of 35 people out of work at each one. Policies that drive up the cost of fuel that in turn drives up the cost of food, etc. Executive orders that hurt not help the citizens of this country. Failure to listen to the will of the people, pushing through a healthcare bill that a large percentage of the people did not want and Congress failing to read the bill before it was passed. If the average person did their job that way in the private sector ... they'd be on the street looking for a new one very quickly.”

“Actually I think Rev. Lee went too far in saying that women shouldn't vote .... but he was right when he said that they are voting in people for the wrong reasons ... for what they can get. Many blacks people voted for Obama because he is black and will do so again ... because of what they think the government will give them. They are wrong. Being beholden to the government is the same as being beholden to the plantation owner. You never get beyond where you are today. The whole idea of government should be to cut the apron strings the same way parents do with their children ... set them free and let them fly. A government that keeps you dependent on it does you no favors. Thy take away your freedom and ability to think for yourself. Oprah didn't get where she is today by depending on the government, nor did Bill Cosby, nor did Michael Jordan and I could name countless others. They got where they are by hard work and using the gifts that god gave them.. I hope some of you out there read this and agree and that some others will see the light. If government can give you something ... they can also take it away ... and with it ... your freedom. Don't let them have that much power over you. Remember folks, the people in government work for US .”

Kiffanik on May 9, 2012 at 14:34:42

“Oprah didn't get where she is because of the government but if she didn't have access to the education and opportunities she did, where would she be? Same for Bill Cosby which is why he and his wife give so much to education. Our current educational system is crap. It penalizes poor children for being born poor and intentionally teaches them less than their counterparts learn, leaving them woefully unprepared to do anything beyond being dependent. If public education is to be a right then it should be funded as such. If you think that is for any purpose other than keeping the same flow of cheap labor that this country was built on then I have some swamp to sell you. I hope whoever sleeps with you is using birth control.”
