    Are you ever on the right side of any issue? Have you ever done anything simply because it was the right thing to do? No? Thought not.

    Keeping the vote legitimate may be the final thing that keeps a revolution from starting.

    You left out that these jobs raise the Federal deficit due to these workers qualifying for food stamps and other gubmit giveaways, making them the leaders of corporate welfare.

    So that is somehow the fault of all that employ low wage workers?

    It seems to me that our congress critters, not Walmart or McDonalds made those silly income redistribution laws, as well as established the federal minimum wage. Simply playing by the rules is neither making nor breaking those rules.

    So, just put those workers on food stamps, outright. Right?

    actually, strangely enough, this may not be an entirely bad thing ... first, it underscores the recognition by the right that they're in trouble if they can't suppress the vote ... Second, there are few things that piss off folks more than poloiticians trying to stop people from voting ... it'll help to mobilize the Dem base and will move some folks on the fence to the Dems ... so, I'm not as mad as I may appear ... disgusted, yes ...

    Use the words that I use, progress----ive, not the ones you twist them into, whatever you are. T. Roosevelt oversaw the greatest era of progress in this Country, when National parks were saved from the regressive/isolationist wing of the GOP.

    Quite well I would suppose. The selective outrage is telling. It seems that the same folks that consider a valid, state issued, photo ID to be essential for buying alcohol, tobacco, firearms or ammo, to cash a check or lottery ticket or to get a job see no undue discriminatory burden at all with those other ID requirements. Only when folks are suddenly required to vote only once, only in their district/state of residence and only as themselves, in any given election, does this draconian ID requirement become an issue.

    Wrong again misquoter. That's what rightie corporations like Wal-Mart have done, put people on food stamps. Glad to you see you're getting closer though.

    Actually, Teddy Roosevelt was an actual Progressive.
