    Here's one story that covers the basics of that decision. FEDERAL COURT STRIKES DOWN TEXAS GOP'S POLLING PLACE PHOTO ID RESTRICTION LAW | The BRAD BLOG
    That decision was by U.S. District Judge Nelva Gonzales Ramos, a 2011 appointee of Democratic President Barack Obama, and is already under appeal. It will not stand.

    More to the point, two New Black Panthers were charged with voter intimidation in the Philly case.
    If they had a gun, that would be even more intimidating right? Open carry is inherently intimidating, right?

    I would guess that it has something to do with people being lazy and mailing a ballot is easier than actually going to a place and voting.

    Being easy isn't pretty.

    That's funny. Good one!!

    In court, where baseless claims are subject to higher scrutiny than chain emails and talk radio, defenders of the photo ID laws don't even try that that nonsense.

    [/quote]And the obvious is that the left sees fraudulent voting as an advantage to democrats. That is why they are against Voter ID. No honest American who is concerned about the integrity of voting in the US should be against of voter ID. You are obviously more concerned with turnout then honest elections.[/QUOTE]

    Nah, if we wanted more fraudulent voting, we'd be glad the non-existent impersonation fraud at the polls was being addressed instead of absentee voting, and so would keep our mouths shut about Photo ID to make sure idiot republicans left the REAL barn door (absentee ballots) open.

    There CAN be, and should be, but one third of counties DO NOT. Republicans don't dispute the facts that one third of counties don't have offices. How could they - it's just fact?

    Well, ALL the residents of those third of counties have to travel at least to the next one to get ID. You're point is confusing.

    "Proper ID" =/= Photo ID acceptable under Texas' voting laws. Can you show me anywhere in the rules for implementing centralized medical records that there is a requirement for every patient to produce a state or federally issued Photo ID with current address, that isn't a college ID or several other forms of photo ID with a persons name, photo and/or address, and without such ID, no records can be established, perhaps the person not treated? Of course not.

    Also, who claimed that getting such an ID is "impossible?" No one. It's difficult, burdensome, especially as about 1/3 of Texas counties have NO outlets that issue the special voting IDs, would require some people without a drivers license find a way to travel in excess of 150 miles round trip, the underlying documents can be difficult and/or expensive to acquire, etc. But only in rarest cases is getting such an ID "impossible."
    LOL.

    Thank you for the complement. A real thinker wouldn't draw that conclusion, but then again...

    So as we move towards a central data base of medical records, it won't be important to a doctor to know exactly who the patient is they are treating? Just walk in and promise you're the person you say you are, so please refill my oxycontin prescription.

    One has to be remarkably naïve to wave off such a critically important thing as precise identification of a patient.

    In Europe, they have a European Health Insurance Card that is issued free of charge, so people can be properly identified for medical treatment. I assume you think people shouldn't receive proper medical treatment.

    Really? Tell me how that works for online signups? Does everyone signing up online have to scan and upload their ID, or maybe they just wave it in front of their iPhone camera, and we all know all the poor have a smart phone?

    BTW, as has been pointed out, "ID" =/= "State or Federal Photo ID with Current Address that isn't a School ID." Lots of forms of ID will work for healthcare. Many of them will NOT work for voting. That's part of the problem......
