    I’ll be at “The New Adventures of Queen Victoria” this week. Pab is taking on Ayn Rand.

    I assumed “physiatrist” was a joke based on BD’s inability to accept that he needed psychiatric help until I looked it up… The physiatrist is obviously used to this reaction, see the strip from a few days earlier:

    My mom’s a physiatrist (physical medicine and rehabilitation specialist.) She used to get that all the time.

    Any thought on our aid helping to get Kenya voters the IDs needed to vote there?

    Amazing how much “Statistical Insignificance” there isn’t when you don’t actually bother looking for it!

    My precinct had a very large “Graveyard Vote” main reason I became a Libertarian.

    And of course the current Chief Executive hangs his hat in Chicago, “Where being dead doesn’t mean you can’t vote the Democrat Ticket!”

    It happens rarely because there’s no way to detect it without accurate ID or ALL voters, black AND white. I can’t believe you believe that crap!

    When they look in the mirror they don’t see anything.

    The Left whines that voter fraud in a rare occurrence. So is murder, so we shouldn’t try to stop it?

    Yep. The Supreme Court’s next target is the 13th amendment! How dare those blankety blanks think they should be free!

    “………Doing away with laws we no longer need because only loony liberals care to play the race card

    Please look up the definition of ‘liberal.’
    And because you think we no longer need a law doesn’t mean we should dump it, because then, for sure, we WILL need it.

    Maybe they should run some real golden oldies, from ’70’s. 80’s, etc.

    @Ngn33r (left over from yesterday)

    In Virginia voting was mandatory before 1776, and at least for a while afterward. I think the requirement was dropped as “burdensome” later, or possible as a means of discouraging the votes of “poor white trash” when the property requirement for voting was dropped. I think this was true in other colonies and states as well, thought I am only certainly about Virginia.

    I also think you misunderstood me in another regard. I do think that the recent decision was right IN A SENSE, that certain districts and states should not be singled out for extra scrutiny when it comes to changing their voting laws. Time and demography change conditions. Personally, I think that all states and districts should be subject to equal scrutiny before changing their voting laws to ensure than such changes do not favor one group over another. Voter suppression laws are not a problem ONLY in the districts listed in the Voter Rights Act. Frankly, and especially for elections to Federal office, I think there should be one standard nationally, designed to prevent voter fraud AND to ensure legitimate voters are never turned away or left uncounted.

    This is tricky. A state should not be presume guilty in its acts until it proves itself innocent; but neither should a voter be presumed to be an imposter until he proves himself to be himself by an unreasonable or burdensome test.

    Early voting should be available to all, and election day should be the LAST day you can vote, not the ONLY day. Furthermore, it should be a holiday in which businesses are by and large closed, so that voters aren’t compelled to get to the polls before or after work or on their lunch hours when a long line may all but prevent them from voting at all. Lastly, voting should required of all registered voters. As it is, an elected official may win with a majority of 51% of a 40% voter turn-out, which means than he is in office with the actual vote of only 1/5 of the electorate. Is it any wonder that the other 80% of the register voters do not consider him to truly represent them, even though he was elected in large part because so many stayed away from the polls?
