Why is it always Democrats who can’t manage the intricacies of voter ID Laws. You would think Democrat voters have just walked into our country, and can’t do anything for themselves. Hey wait a minute, if they just walked in, isn’t that illegal? Can they speak English? Oops that is way too close for comfort.
This is an insult to black Americans, Hispanic Americans. First black Americans, they don’t know nothing about savings accounts, according to the NAACP. And now they can’t get a picture ID, from the State. Can they Walk Guns to Mexican drug cartels? Black Americans I know are smarter than than, most have at least a High School diploma.
Yet the DOJ witnesses seemed to be able to get 1500 miles from Texas to the Federal Courtroom. I think you have to show ID to get on an Airplane these days.
Why do we have to argue this in court? The DOJ’s main job seems to be arguing for ACORN in courts. Walking Guns, not protecting people from real crimes.
In Florida, the State picture ID people will make house calls, if you need. Just give them a shout out on your government supplied cell phone. They will schedule you.
Lawyers for the state of Texas argued Friday that a contentious voter ID law should go forward because it doesn‘t limit minorities’ right to vote and, therefore, does not violate the federal Voting Rights Act.
Justice Department attorneys argued just the opposite, saying the law requiring voters to show valid, government-issued photo identification at the polls is exactly the type of statute that the act, passed in 1965, was designed to prevent.
OK, that’s a lame one trick pony if there ever was one. I have heard this same crap since I was 12 years old. There hasn’t been any changes since 1965? So what was the purpose of the 1965 Voter Rights Act then?
Both sides gave closing arguments Friday after a week long trial. Texas currently only requires voters to show their voter registration cards, which do not have photos, or another acceptable alternative form of ID such as a driver’s license or utility bill.
And the NAACP convention requires photo ID’s, the one Holder just spoke at, as do most government buildings. This is really lame.
In Florida we get those cards in the mail, and they are no problem with normal people. The State even follows up by calling to make sure you got the card. It’s a tough world out there, for even helpless peopls.
However, according to WOIA, Texas’ attorneys seemingly destroyed all of the Justice Department’s main arguments in the case – even getting one of their lead witnesses to admit he got his information from Wikipedia.
You would think they would do a better job than to look up their key witness from the Internet.
This, just days after Attorney General Eric Holder addressed the NAACP National Convention and told a supportive audience that he would “not allow the Texas voter ID law to happen,” a line that received applause and cheers.

Testimony has concluded in the trial of Texas ‘Voter I.D.’ law, after attorneys for the state demolished the main arguments raised against the law by the Obama Administration, and got the key witness for the Justice Department to admit he got his information from Wikipedia, 1200 WOAI news reports.
The Justice Department presented what it said was evidence that as many as 1.5 million Texans don’t have the government issued photo i.d. required to vote, but Attorney General Greg Abbott says of the people on that roll, 50,000 are dead, 330,000 are over the age of 65 and can vote by mail, where a photo i.d. is not required, and more than 800,000 are on the list improperly.
Among the people who the DOJ listed as ‘lacking the required documentation needed to vote’ are Former President George W. Bush, San Antonio State Senator Leticia Van de Putte, and Licia Ellis, who’s husband, Houston state Senator Rodney Ellis, on Wednesday blasted the voter i.d. law as ‘just like the racist murder of James Byrd’ who was dragged to death in east Texas in 1998.
In fact, University of Texas students conducted a telephone survey of random people on the DOJ’s list of people who allegedly don’t have the documents required to vote, and found that more than 90% of them, including 93% of African Americans and 92% of Hispanics on the list, actually have a photo i.d.
