    Both sides will have another reason to drain resources and waste time. America wins again.

    Some info on the proposed Texas law.

    Hate to sound too much like a resistance Lib but man, the GOP hates free elections.

    The "watchers" part looks like a slight expansion of what was already there so it doesn't bug me too much, the 3rd party mailing of registration forms doesn't bug me too much because I would like to get outside money out of elections. But the fact that the state DOES NOT already register anyone who has a state issued ID is a problem though it's not part of this bill.

    Seems like it's mostly nibbling around the edges, but in general a bill that serves no purpose other than cooling election turnout.

    Purity? Says an adamant supporter of the party that went from owning slaves to owning their vote.

    Which party passed bills to protect confederate monuments and protect flags that have the confederate flag on them? If you can show thatís the Democrats of today, then I will be stunned.

    How dare a slave thank Lincoln for freeing him. You do know that was an actual moment? Maybe?

    Well apparently there are people who donít like the message it sends. That black people are just lucky that whites people give them what they should have and not need to be given.
