Millennials get cut off at the polls
Washington Post, by Catherine Rampell

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 7/7/2014 10:48:01 PM

First they came for blacks, and we said nothing. Then they came for Latinos, poor people and married women, and we again ignored the warning signs. Now, after our years of apathy, they’re coming for us: the nation’s millennials. Across the country, Republican state policymakers have hoisted barriers to voting by passing voter-ID laws and curtailing electoral accommodations such as same-day registration and early voting. These policy changes are allegedly intended to eradicate the imagined scourge of voter fraud, but the real point seems to be voter suppression. For a time, the targeted populations were primarily racial,

Geez. No evidence of voter fraud is their mantra. Hey, WaPo, have you ever done a non-partisan, unbiased investigative report on the subject? Do you think you can follow the money and the corruption? Probably not.

In a sane world, the first paragraph of this piece alone would be evidence enough to have this poor broad institutionalized.

All liberals are delusional. That´s the only explanation unless they are too dumb to be able to get a voter i.d. card. The article is pure drivel. Don´t read the comments, they´ll make your head spin. No one is preventing anyone from voting except the voter him/herself. If you claim to be an adult, act like one.

"First they objected to dead people voting, then they tried to stop multiple voting by blacks without photo ID. Then they tried to stop illegal aliens and incarcerated felons from voting. Now republican extremists are trying to force sexually promiscuous women to pay for their own birth control."

So, basement dwelling Millennials may have to come into the sunlight in order to vote. Can´t they just do it on their iPhone? Why can´t they vote on their PS4 or XBox One? Hell, why doesn´t the government have a voting truck that goes door to door, like Papa Johns, and they can just vote at the door?

If this is what passes for the majority (it doesn´t) of these kids, then there isn´t much left to do except surrender or die.

So Catherine Rampell and the Washington Post are saying they are not the least bit interested in free and fair elections. With no voter ID and same-day registration, Ms. Rampell can vote often and multiple times. With more flexible early voting dates and locations, she could more easily commit voter fraud. Just like ACORN and those that vote for neighbors and folks in nursing homes.

I remember registering to vote years ago. I went to the courthouse, asked numerous clerks for directions to the office of the official with whom I would register, then sat on a bench waiting for him to get there to work (an hour late).

Have these millenials no patience? If I refused to be discouraged by the bureaucracy, why must they have same day registration?

VOTER FRAUD - That is what we the people are attempting to clean up. The dead vote, the non citizen votes, the uninformed are paid to come to the polls and vote, the absentee ballot is abused by fraudsters; all the things that are being suggested to clean up the system is called obstructing. Well, of course the left woiuld say that, because they love the corrupt system the way it is and that goes for both political parties that can use the ´flaws in the laws´ to bring their candidate over the line at the last minute. The writer of this article doesn´t know what she is talking about, but she is serving the purpose of fraud.

If fraudulent voters cast votes for Republicans she would be signing another song. When did married women become excluded from voting since the Republicans passed the law to give women the vote? She is an idiot and the Washington Post has sunk deeper into irrelevance.

In the winter of 2005, Ziad Abu Amr, a Gaza representative in the Palestinian Legislative Council, invited me to speak in Gaza City. As I entered the building for the event, I saw Mahmoud al-Zahar, one of the co-founders of Hamas. Before I could say anything, Ziad explained: “We decided to invite the opposition to hear you. We think it is important that they do so.” I had not expected senior Hamas leaders to be there, but it didn’t alter my main message.

President Obama’s authorization of air strikes in Iraq has triggered unease among high-level former U.S. officials who say the administration still lacks a coherent strategy for beating back the growing al Qaeda-inspired militancy in the war-torn nation. Retired Army Lt. Gen. James M. Dubik told The Washington Times that the strikes Friday against artillery and mortar positions of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) were “necessary but not sufficient” to seriously confront threat now posed to the region and to the wider world. “There needs to be be a more comprehensive strategy rooted in the security interests

PRESIDENT OBAMA was right to order military action to prevent a potential genocide in northern Iraq and to stop forces of the al-Qaeda-derived Islamic State from advancing on Baghdad or the Kurdish capital of Irbil. However, the steps the president authorized on Thursday amount to more of his administration’s half-measures, narrowly tailored to this week’s emergency and unconnected to any coherent strategy to address the conflagration spreading across the Middle East. While U.S. airstrikes and drops of supplies may prevent the terrorist forces from massacring the Yazidi sect or toppling the pro-Western regime in Kurdistan, Mr. Obama lacks a plausible

And so we come full circle. Nearly three years since Barack Obama decided to trade defeat for victory in Iraq by allowing his feckless vice president to fail to “negotiate” a status-of-forces agreement with the Iraqi government he did not really wish to have—since the president wanted to leave, leave, leave, as he had said he would do in 2007—circumstances of the simplest human decency have compelled him to commit U.S. forces to stave off the genocide of the Yazidi sect in Iraq. He is not responsible for the monstrous actions of the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria—in no

Throngs of Secret Service agents are always on watch for suspicious packages near the White House gates, and anyone who might be looking to infiltrate the grounds. But Thursday night, they had a slightly smaller-scale security breach to contend with: a toddler who squeezed through the fence in the front of the residence. The brief kerfuffle as agents scrambled to intercept the pint-sized intruder confirms what most people know: toddlers are sneaky, and fast. This one was promptly returned to his parents.

The United States dropped food and other supplies by air to besieged Iraqi civilians Thursday and President Obama authorized possible airstrikes against Sunni Muslim extremists who punctured Kurdish defenses in a powerful offensive in northern Iraq. Obama, in a late-night statement delivered at the White House, said that strikes would be launched against extremist convoys “should they move toward” the Kurdish capital of Irbil. “We intend to take action if they threaten our facilities anywhere in Iraq .?.?. including Irbil and Baghdad,” he said.

The increasingly dire straits of refugees in the Kurdish region of Iraq, amid startling gains by Islamist forces there, led President Obama to approve humanitarian airdrops and have propelled the administration into new and urgent consideration of a military intervention it has studiously avoided so far. The lightning advance of the Islamic State militant group, south from the northwest city of Mosul to within 60 miles of Baghdad, has been a source of deep concern since it began two months ago. But the administration worried that interjecting itself into the conflict would inevitably open it to charges of siding with

President Obama announced Thursday night he has authorized the U.S. military to conduct air strikes "if necessary" against Islamist militants in Iraq, and the military has conducted a mission to drop humanitarian aid there to help religious minorities stranded amid the violence. Obama said in a statement from the White House the U.S. military is authorized to launch targeted air strikes if Islamist militants advance toward American personnel in northern Iraq. He also said that the U.S. decided to conduct the drops to the 50,000 or so religious minorities stranded on a mountaintop in the country´s north, who have been

Several months ago, based on several far from minor out-of-the-gate mistakes, I characterized the candidacy of the Democratic Party´s challenger to incumbent Republican Governor John Kasich as "the wreck that is Edward FitzGerald." In the past week, FitzGerald has utterly imploded. The latest revelation Tuesday afternoon, namely that he had "no license to drive at all from 2002 to 2008," leaves one wondering whether his party vetted him at all. Former Cleveland Plain Dealer editorial director Brent Larkin calls this "at or near the top of the list" of "bizarre developments" he´s seen in 45 years of covering politics. Despite

Texas appear to have “bought the deal” by offering an $100 million economic incentive package.

A NEW humanitarian and security crisis has erupted in northern Iraq, where the al-Qaeda-derived Islamic State borders territories controlled by Iraqi and Syrian Kurds. Since last weekend, tens of thousands of civilians have been trapped on a mountainside near the Iraqi town of Sinjar, which was captured by Islamic State fighters. The refugees, including an estimated 25,000 children, lack supplies of food and water and could perish in a matter of days unless a relief corridor is opened, according to the United Nations. Meanwhile, the extremist forces are threatening to capture Iraq’s two largest dams and are pressing toward Irbil,

For me, watching the Food Network was always an easy escape from the stresses of daily life. There was just something calming about watching chefs in action, and this network had perfected Zen cooking. They’d often use a natural-light filter that made food appear delectable, as if the chefs were blissfully cooking their culinary delights in the sunlit designer kitchen of a tastefully decorated, impeccable home somewhere in the Hamptons.

Speaking at the U.S.-Africa Summit earlier this week, Secretary of State John Kerry had a bit of astonishing advice for African leaders. While noting that Africa faces a starvation problem, he also admonished its leaders not to create more farms. The reason? Adding more farms would contribute to “global warming.” Yeah, he really said that: “Certain agricultural processes can actually release carbon pollution and actually contribute to the problem in the first place.

Officials at Brooks Elementary School in Newnan, Ga. announced the draconian new policy for the upcoming school year via a letter to parents, reports The Newnan Times-Herald. “When parents have brought in goodies for birthdays, oftentimes these children are not included in the snack because of dietary restrictions and have felt left out,” Julie Raschen, principal of Brooks Elementary, said, according to the Times-Herald.
