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.

Doesn´t 0bamacare cover the meds Ms. Rampell clearly needs? Is there no more Thorazine?
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.

Translation:
"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.

WASHINGTON — A man jumped over the fence of the White House on Friday and made it through the front door before officers managed to apprehend him, just minutes after President Barack Obama had departed, the Secret Service said. The intruder sprinted toward the White House after leaping over the fence and ignored commands from officers to stop, Secret Service spokesman Ed Donovan said. He was ultimately apprehended just inside the North Portico doors, the grand, columned entrance that looks out over Pennsylvania Ave. Donovan said the man appeared to be unarmed to officers who spotted him jumping the fence,

HOUSTON, Texas -- On Friday Texas´ Attorney General Greg Abbott and State Senator Wendy Davis -- both gubernatorial candidates -- debated in the state´s Rio Grande Valley. During the course of the debate, the issue of education came up. After hearing what Abbott had to say, a defensive Davis spoke when she was not supposed to and even interrupted a moderator multiple times--despite being told that it was not her turn to speak. The incident began after Davis asked Abbott a question that began, "Judge Dates has recently ruled against you and in favor of the school children of Texas,

It should come as no surprise when movies dovetail with the wider social conversation. But this week, the collision is occurring with particularly crystallizing force. To wit: The arrival of a Liam Neeson movie isn’t exactly news, although his new one, “A Walk Among the Tombstones,” is notable on several counts. For one thing, it marks the return of Neeson to the kind of substantive, mature roles his fans have craved while he’s been making science-fiction fantasies and franchise installments. As New York detective Matt Scudder, Neeson settles easily into a role that calls for equal parts muscular brawn and

Interpreting the Islamic State’s jihadi logic

What was the Islamic State thinking? We know it is sophisticated in its use of modern media. But what was the logic of propagating to the world videos of its beheadings of two Americans (and subsequently a Briton) — sure to inflame public opinion? There are two possible explanations. One is that these terrorists are more depraved and less savvy than we think. They so glory in blood that they could not resist making an international spectacle of their savagery — after all, they proudly broadcast their massacre of Shiite prisoners — and did not quite fathom how such a

The United States has made the same mistake in evaluating fighters from the Islamic State that it did in Vietnam — underestimating the enemy’s will, according to James Clapper, the director of national intelligence. Clapper’s comments came in a telephone interview Wednesday, in which he summarized the elements of a new National Intelligence Strategy released this week. Clapper also answered some broader questions about intelligence issues confronting the country. Asked whether the intelligence community had succeeded in its goal of providing “anticipatory intelligence” about the extremist movement in Syria and Iraq that has declared itself the Islamic State, Clapper said

Flashes of disagreement over how to fight the Islamic State are mounting between President Obama and U.S. military leaders, the latest sign of strain in what often has been an awkward and uneasy relationship. Even as the administration has received congressional backing for its strategy, with the Senate voting Thursday to approve a plan to arm and train Syrian rebels, a series of military leaders have criticized the president’s approach against the Islamic State militant group. Retired Marine Gen. James Mattis, who served under Obama until last year, became the latest high-profile skeptic on Thursday, telling the House Intelligence Committee

Guns are becoming the prop of choice in campaign ads around the country this midterm year. Take it as another sign that the Obama administration’s gun control push is running aground: Firearms have become this year’s go-to accessory for candidates of both parties seeking to advertise their toughness and willingness to fight. Republicans, and even some Democrats, in a dozen states are showing off their shooting skills in videos and television ads or posing with firearms in mailers, underscoring the backlash against federal and state proposals to restrict access to guns and ammunition.

Weeks before the State Department assured Americans that things were operating “normally” at its consulate in the Kurdish capital of Erbil in August, concerned procurement officials were quietly saying the advance of militants of the Islamic State, also known as ISIL or ISIS, meant the government needed to shell out tens of millions of dollars to counter a “rapidly deteriorating” security situation. On a no-bid basis, the State Department nearly doubled the size of a task order to defense contractor Triple Canopy, which had been hired to train Iraqi security forces but was asked to now perform diplomatic security and

Apple announced on Wednesday night that it would no longer unlock encrypted iPhones or iPads for police in many circumstances, taking a hard new line as tech companies attempt to blunt allegations that they have too readily participated in government efforts to collect user data. The move, enacted with the publication of a new privacy policy tied to the release of Apple’s latest mobile operating system, iOS 8, amounts to an engineering solution to a legal dilemma: Rather than refuse legally binding court orders, Apple has reworked its latest encryption in a way that makes it all but impossible for

The Obama administration quietly has been forcing new gun buyers to declare their race and ethnicity, a policy change that critics say provides little law enforcement value while creating the risk of privacy intrusions and racial profiling. With little fanfare, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) in 2012 amended its Form 4473 — the transactional record the government requires gun purchasers and sellers to fill out when buying a firearm — to identify buyers as either Hispanic, Latino or not. Then a buyer must check his or her race: Indian, Asian, black, Pacific Islander or white. The

Devastating. That´s really the only way to describe Politico´s piece on DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz. (I hereby nominate her for Worst Week in Washington.) (Editor´s note: Three words -- Joseph. Robinette. Biden.) Based on interviews with DNC staffers -- both former and current -- the piece described Wasserman Schultz as something of a modern-day Tracy Flick: over-eager, disloyal and not shy about promoting her ambitions. It would be fair to say that she sounds like, well, a lot like other politicians. And this would be accurate.

WASHINGTON — Kurdish fighters battling ISIS desperately want more guns and armor, but they already have a secret weapon: The fanatics they’re fighting fear that if they get killed in combat by a woman, they won’t go to heaven. “They have many female battalions, as you know who fought very bravely,” Rep. Ed Royce (R-Calif.), who chairs the House International Relations Committee, told The Post of the Kurds. Royce, who met this week with the foreign minister of Kurdistan, cited recent reports of young female Kurdish troops “laughing” at ISIS forces they had turned back. “These ISIL soldiers apparently believed that if

That rare respiratory illness sickening children around the country continues to crop up in new places. It has been confirmed in 22 states, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Friday, appearing in three states where it had not been previously: Georgia, Michigan and Washington state. These children are facing an uncommon enterovirus strain. While enteroviruses in general are quite common, this particular strain — enterovirus 68 — has not cropped up terribly often since it was first identified in 1962. It can cause severe breathing problems, a particular danger for children who may suffer from asthma or other

We’re happy to call it that.” So its official: America is at war with the enemy of Islam.

When reporters began to grill Rice about whether the president had already given the authorization to the militarily to bomb in Syria, Rice kept repeating they would not be releasing information on the timing of those air strikes. Reporters continued to push with several trying to explain their question is if the president has already given authorization. Laughing uncomfortably Rice exited the room

A man who’s a better speechwriter than his speechwriters, a better political director than his political directors, and who knows more about policy than his policy advisors must surely also be a better general than his generals, no? The U.S. military campaign against Islamist militants in Syria is being designed to allow President Barack Obama to exert a high degree of personal control, going so far as to require that the military obtain presidential signoff for strikes in Syrian territory, officials said. The requirements for strikes in Syria against the extremist group Islamic State will be far more stringent than those targeting
