    Government benefits, medications, alcohol requirements, driving, banking, walking across US borders and flying all require photo ID's.  How racist are those laws?  And don't glaze over it but try to answer it.  How racist are those requirements?

    Actually this ain't a new phenomena. In the 1930s the Republicans took back Congress in the middle of the Great Depression. Yep that's right. how the fuck could the Republicans take back Congress in the middle of the Great Depression? Which needless to say blocked FDR expanding the New Deal and caused a double dip depression. Now either there's some dodgy counting going on – or the working people of America have rice-pudding for brains. Probably a little of the former, and much of the latter.

    Do you people ever listen to yourselves…that is, try to hear outside your echo chamber? For one, you think voter ID laws are draconian if they are not universally lowered to the level of the least abled. Here's the rub: you assume the least abled are so destitute its a wonder they can get off the couch (or out of their cardboard box) and feel their way to the polls…I.e., voting should require NOTHING beyond maintaining a pulse, sitting up to take fluids.

    You need an ID to get a job, you need an ID to get govt benefits. You need an ID for alcohol, to cash a check, but GOD FORBID you present an ID to prove you are the REGISTERED person reporting. face palm

    The voting application asks for an ID number, and if you have none, will issue one. If you bring your voter registration card to a DMV or a MOBILE issuer (specially for this purpose), you can get an election identification card.

    The ignorance shown is astounding. They care enough to want to vote, but don't care enough to get an ID. Really?

    By the by, you don't need a birth certificate for an EIC, there are other ways to prove your identity, but the journalism shown here is so severely lacking, you didn't bother to check what is on the Texas.gov website. Typical. If this dude named 'Ben Jealous' (WOW) says it, it must be true!

    You have GOT to be kidding me.

    'You can't use a student ID, but can use a conceal carry ID'.

    One is issued by a private entity, the other is issued by the government AFTER a thorough background check.

    Can ya guess which one is which?

    I generally enjoy the news as it is reported, but the blatant, disgusting, massively biased, propaganda being spewed for the last few days is incredibly stomach churning.
