    Actually, they just “found” the video of Brown PAYING for those cigars he supposedly stole.

    Unions don’t get no-bid contracts, cubefarmer — corporations do. The unions just support the people who work for those corporations. I’m all in favor of cutting out the no-bid contracts (although “always give it to the lowest bidder” has its problems too… can’t we please select for quality for a change?). But let’s get it right about who’s getting those contracts… the companies who line the pockets of the congresspeople who demand them.

    Sounds remarkably like what Kansas looks like right now — because it’s been run like a right-wing dream world for the last few years, and its economy tanked as soon as those conservative practices took effect. Funny how it always seems to do that. The theories are always about how the economy falls apart under Democratic rule, but when you look at the actual long-term data, it falls apart when the Republicans get their way instead.

    nikilpat: that would be a variant of #3.

    Doughfoot: I’m sure Cruz wants us to believe option #1. My strong suspicion is in the #3-#5 range.

    Jeff,

    The whole process of incorporation has one purpose: to put a wall of separation between the humans behind the company, and the actions and concerns of the company itself. This is why the people who won a corporation aren’t personally responsible for its debt. Now they want it to be considered identical to them… but only when it suits them; they still don’t want to be responsible for its debt. Sorry, but that doesn’t make any sense.

    There has never been a problem with signing contracts with a corporation, because that is one of the express functions that corporations were created to do. It is not a function of being human; any entity with money can engage in contracts. You are correct, however, that what a company can’t do, a union should not be able to do, but “company” and “corporation” are not identical terms, and whether a union resembles a corporation or not depends on the union. Those which are structured as corporations, with the full protection for the individuals involved against liability for the union’s actions, should be treated like corporations — that protection against liability is what should be distinguishing companies which can be treated as extensions of the humans behind them and companies which shouldn’t be. A union which does not protect its individual members against liability for the actions of the union should be treated as a group of individuals, just as a company which has not incorporated (and therefore which still offers no liability protection for the individuals behind it) should still be treated as a group of individuals. But there really ought to be some legal consistency behind the question of whether they are separating the entity from the individuals who make it, or they aren’t.

    All the evidence shows that it isn’t necessary, since in-person voter fraud is virtually nonexistent. However, I certainly see no problem with this method. If it makes you feel better, go ahead and propose it to your state’s Secretary of State (or other supervisor of elections, depending on where you live).

    ConserveGov: How come European countries spend vastly less per capita on health care than we do, and get dramatically better results?

    Mephistopheles, since you say you don’t want to prevent any citizen from voting and are only concerned with asking for proof of ID, I trust you are taking action to oppose the closing of early voting in poor neighborhoods while keeping it open in wealthy ones (which is happening in Ohio), and the closing of restrooms in polling places in Florida where people are already having to wait 12 hours to vote because so many polling places (always in poor neighborhoods or student areas) have been shut down. Not to mention the recent case — I think it was Michigan? Not sure I remember — which shut down the public transportation routes from poor neighborhoods to their new polling places, to ensure that only people with the money to own a car would get to vote. If your real concern is merely using ID to ensure true citizens are the only voters, I’d expect you to be standing up and opposing all these things — are you?

    And what is your excuse for closing all the restrooms in the Miami polling places — after already creating such artificial scarcity that people have to wait ten to twelve hours in line before they can vote? That has nothing to do with proving who anyone is.
