What’s Lost if the
Voting Rights Act Falls?

Slate, by Richard L. Hasen

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 1/10/2013 6:05:18 AM

Odds are, the Supreme Court will strike down a key provision of the Voting Rights Act after hearing a case from Alabama that will be argued next month. If the part of the law called Section 5 does indeed go down, minority voters in Southern states and elsewhere will lose a key bargaining chip. Section 5 has enabled them to beat back some attempts to make it harder for them to vote, and helped insure that the gains they’ve made in representation and redistricting are not rolled back. As another recent fight over South Carolina’s voter ID law shows,

Comments:
What´s "lost" is the federal government´s unfair, selective and discriminatory ability to hammer southern states where there´s no evidence of suppression. And, voter ID is not making it harder for minorities to vote, because it applies to all voters.

The idea that minority voters are somehow incapable of getting a photo ID is extremely racist. The idea that anyone should be able to walk in off the street and vote in any State without proving they are eligible is extremely dangerous. If the liberals can round up minorities and bus them to the polls they should be able to stop at the Secretary of State´s office on the way.

I must have led a very sheltered life. Been voting since the early 60´s and have yet to see a New White Panther dude standing on the steps with a billy club trying to keep blacks from voting.

Been voting for a very long time in the deep South and I have always had to present an ID. I never knew it was racist. See, most kids, if not all wanted a driver´s license. And the Dang things have a photo on ´em. And if one cared not to drive, one could the identical Driver´s card without the license part. It did require one to go to the one of many motor vehicle offices around the state and stand in line just like every one else. But it wasn´t that hard.

If voters must go to a little effort in order to cast a vote that assures us that the more informed people vote. As long as everyone is subject to the same rules no discrimination is involved. Liberals are always looking for some way to stack the deck. And will use the propaganda tactic of blaming the other side for doing what they themselves are doing.

Any pseudo democracy has a perfect right to protect the integrity of their voting systems,other wise why even go through the pretense of voting when the elections can easily be stolen. The left has figured out a way to avoid voting integrity,otherwise the couldn´t win big elections.

If latinos voted 80% republicans.the left would be on the border with machine guns themselves.

it is certainly time to lose section 5 of the voting rights act. i still don´t see why people are so insistent that voter id is discrimitory. you have to have id for almost everything you do these days, cash a pay check, get on a plane, open a bank account, buy a gun or ammo. why not an id for something as important as voting? oh, right. libs and their hangers on don´t do those sort of things, only want to vote several times.

Voter fraud by the Democrats is alive and well. Even Alicia Colon agrees that it was voter fraud in Florida robbing Allen West of his seat. He gave in too easily, maybe he gave out of money, etc. As many have said if we fail to get voter ID in all states in 2016, we will lose again. I was having an ultrasound yesterday, what did I have to produce? A picture I.D., even though I was in the computer from previous visits. Do you really believe most minorities don´t have a picture I.D.?

They were not able to find a single, believable case of a minority voter unable to get a picture ID. The one they thought they had said her parents didn´t have time to take her to get her license, but then she made time to fly to DC to tell congress that.

It´s all about the voter fraud. And the Republicans can´t do anything about it.

We had a good laugh the other night at the grocery store. The lady in front of me wrote a check for her purchases. The checker asked for her driver´s license. She looked it and accepted the check.

I commented, "funny it is ok showing our ID to cash a check but we can´t show an ID to vote". Everyone around agreed. Proof of the ignorance and stupidity of Liberals.

The only reason Liberals/Democrats are against voter ID is because they have nothing resembling ethics and integrity and WANT to cheat and steal elections. I defy any of them to prove me wrong.

I will never understand what the big deal is or WHY these people have lived their entire lives without having to have a picture ID.

When I moved to Texas in 1983 to go to grad school, in order to cash checks, I had to have a state issued TEXAS ID card. (At that time, my Alabama driver´s license did not have a photo on it--that wasn´t so important in those days.) I rode my bicycle across town (had to ride on some busy streets) to get to the DPS. When I got there, I learned that an ID card cost $5 and a driver´s license cost $8. I went for the driver´s license! --And in those days there was absolutely no problem with the DPS in my presenting my license with no picture to prove my identity. How sad our world has become.

Why can´t these people ride bicycles (surely they know someone with one if they don´t have one themselves), take light rail (sarcasm there), or WALK 10 miles in the snow or whatever to get one? It´s certainly not very important to these people, so they should stop whining about it. There are plenty of things *I* could complain about that are much more inconvenient that I have to figure out how to do EVERY DAY! GROW UP!

Check out the lines outside stores when a huge bargain is announced. Many times is it the so-called minorities who sit outside, rain, snow or shine for hours and sometimes days to make sure they get what is being sold.

It is those same voters who are so "disenfranchised" that they are unable to get any ID to prove he or she is eligible to vote. I am up to here with this crap!

The voting rights act was unconstitutional from the beginning. It should never have been allowed to exempt Northern and Far Western states.

A Tale of Two Letters: Why the
Peace Process Went Poof
Commentary Magazine, by Rich Richman    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 4/13/2014 5:46:11 PM     Post Reply
Last week Zbigniew Brzezinski, joined by five other foreign-policy experts from the past, issued an open letter entitled “Stand Firm, John Kerry,” calling for “clarity” on “the critical moral and political issues” in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. The letter castigated Israeli settlements and proposed “halting the diplomatic process” to “help stop this activity.” At “Pressure Points,” Elliott Abrams dismantled the letter, noting that, among other things, it ignored history. As it happens, tomorrow is the 10th anniversary of one of the more important items of history the Brzezinski group ignored: the April 14, 2004 letter from President George W. Bush to Prime

LAS VEGAS — The Nevada Republican Party stripped opposition to abortion and gay marriage from its platform Saturday as state convention delegates instead focused on judging fellow Republicans on their worthiness to serve in office and adherence to GOP values. The platform, with few changes, was adopted overwhelmingly as the Las Vegas convention stretched late into the evening. The vote mirrors that of the Clark County GOP, which voted earlier to remove platform language defining marriage as between a man and a woman and statements opposing abortion. Many Republicans are re-evaluating their strong stances on conservative social issues as public

Generally, when we hear stories about the federal government ripping off the businessman, we tend to think of tales of tax increases or burdensome regulations. But a different type of story crosses our desk this weekend, as a solar power consortium – who already received a quarter billion in grants and tax incentives – takes Uncle Sam to the courthouse because they feel they should have gotten millions more. Federal investigators will spend the next year going through the books of two solar-energy companies tied to billionaire Elon Musk in an effort to show the businesses overvalued sales contracts in

EARLIER this year, a column by a Harvard undergraduate named Sandra Y. L. Korn briefly achieved escape velocity from the Ivy League bubble, thanks to its daring view of how universities should approach academic freedom. Korn proposed that such freedom was dated and destructive, and that a doctrine of “academic justice” should prevail instead. No more, she wrote, should Harvard permit its faculty to engage in “research promoting or justifying oppression” or produce work tainted by “racism, sexism, and heterosexism.” Instead, academic culture should conform to left-wing ideas of the good, beautiful and true, and decline as a matter of

IN THE WORLD of early-20th-century African-American music and people obsessed by it, who can appear from one angle like a clique of pale and misanthropic scholar-gatherers and from another like a sizable chunk of the human population, there exist no ghosts more vexing than a couple of women identified on three ultrarare records made in 1930 and ’31 as Elvie Thomas and Geeshie Wiley.

There’s something sinister on the airwaves. It’s sloppy, and it’s cynical, but sinister all the same, and it’s race-hate spewing from the absolute top of the Democratic Party.

It’s an article of the faith of the Democrats that voter fraud is nothing to worry about because it never happens. Kim Strach, the North Carolina director of elections, has living proof — and some dead proof — otherwise. She has identified 35,750 persons who voted in North Carolina sharing a name, birth date and Social Security number with someone who voted in another state in 2012. Another 81 North Carolinians voted after they died. Ghosts have no constitutional rights, not yet, but Barack Obama and the Democrats think rigor mortis need not keep voters from practicing good citizenship. President Obama nevertheless

A veteran Justice Department lawyer says that Attorney General Eric Holder has politicized the department in a way he hadn’t seen before. In short, “Holder is the worst person to hold the position of attorney general since the disgraced John Mitchell.” Now in his sixth year as attorney general, Holder has increasingly tilted the department in an ideological direction. It’s one thing to emphasize President Obama’s legal priorities. It’s quite another to decide not to enforce certain federal laws — such as the ban on marijuana — or urge state attorney generals to refuse to defend local laws on same-sex

Ernst was wearing shoes on Thursday night when she attended a speech Clinton was giving in Las Vegas, but apparently brought an extra one specifically to throw at the former secretary of state.

In fact, the reality of the dispute goes far underneath what is being talked about. The more appropriate source of the dispute is ground water as well as surface water -- this is a war over water.

Those killings, however, are only a fragment of the total harm caused by the misuse of firearms. Each year, more than 30,000 people die in the United States in firearm-related incidents. Many of those deaths involve handguns. The adoption of rules that will lessen the number of those incidents should be a matter of primary concern to both federal and state legislators.

A Nevada cattle rancher appears to have won his week-long battle with the federal government over a controversial cattle roundup that had led to the arrest of several protesters. Cliven Bundy went head to head with the Bureau of Land Management over the removal of hundreds of his cattle from federal land, where the government said they were grazing illegally. Bundy claims his herd of roughly 900 cattle have grazed on the land along the riverbed near Bunkerville, 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas, since 1870 and threatened a "range war" against the BLM on the Bundy Ranch website after one of

President Obama labeled complaints about voter fraud “bogus” and accused Republicans of cynically trying to prevent Americans from accessing the polls in a fiery speech Friday at a civil rights forum hosted by Al Sharpton. Obama argued that attempts in some states to impose new voter identification restrictions were actually efforts by Republicans to make “it harder, not easier to vote.” And the president said that while voter fraud should be prevented, it rarely occurred. “So let´s be clear, the real voter fraud is the people who try to deny our rights by making bogus arguments about voter fraud,” Obama said.

It’s hardly been a secret that in recent years the moderate center of the Democrat party has been driven away and what remains is a conglomeration of disparate blocs which, to date, the party has been able to treat as if there were no conflicting interests between them. As the midterm elections approach and the administration’s incompetence, along with the distaste for the president’s signature ObamaCare legislation, drive the party’s chances down further, the make-believe coalition of opposites may well crumble if the opposition doesn’t blow it. Democrats hope to retain control of the Senate and recapture the House by driving

A brazen flash mob has been caught on camera storming a California store and making off with $20,000 worth of sunglasses. Surveillance footage shows eight women piling into a Sunglass Hut and crowding around display cases. Shielding workers from what they´re doing, they quickly stuff dozens of fashion specs into their bags. A store clerk pleads with them to stop, before running out of the shot to get help and dial 911. The thieves then all bolt outside and escape in a waiting SUV. The incident occurred at the Valencia Town Center mall, in Santa Clarita, at 3 p.m. on
