    I find it boring. Tennis players are far better athletes and far fitter. Basketball is purely American as is volleyball, while Baseball was derived from Cricket.

    Should people have to show their photo ID in order to vote in US presidential elections? Why or why not?
    Its simply a good idea, IMO.
    Here in PA we use the drivers license and in York Haven at times we have more "people to help" than we have voters ! Some of these are "safety and security nazis", an unfortunate thing in our society of today...But, electronic voting is great....maybe a first step in having 100% of us voting.
    I do hope that we have the quality of people to administer this voter ID system and not any extremists( security nazis)

    It matter not what you think Social Security should ask for, the fact is that they do not ask for photo ID.

    Three strikes and Greenville is out.
    They all have the right to ask for a photo ID. I didn't mean to imply that everyone checks ID who can. Your wife had to have a photo id (or the docs I mentioned that would enable her to get a photo ID) in order to get her social security number and card which would allow her to collect social security (I said "Social Security Benefits start out using...). You probably gave your insurance info to the hospital, so they didn't care about the rest once the insurance was verified.
    The US is an odd ship. The captain yells out when he sees obtacles , but 535 individual propellers do the steering.

    Lots of things have part of their origins in other cultures and nations. That is nothing new. Basketball is suppose to go back to Mayan or Aztec culture.

    I do understand your contention that baseball is boring. It is slow and you really have to understand the nuances of the game to appreciate the slower moments. I know you love tennis but truthfully I found that also boring. I do love badminton - as a playing sport - however. To each their own I guess.

    Now I suppose that might have thrown the election. Don't really know. Was Indiana a swing state? Did he have to get on that ballot in order to run for presidency?
    Are you suggesting that either candidate would have fallen short of being on the ballot without "fraudulent signatures"? I think that is even a less tenable position that suggesting the election outcome was effected.

    I don't see the problem in requiring a photo ID to vote. I mean, people don't seem to make much of a fuss about having photo ID to have car insurance, either.

    That's not what the article says is it? It shows that both Clinton's and Obama's signatures had around 150 fraudulant signatures. Clinton's total signatures was over 700. Obama's total signatures was roughly 550. According to the article they each needed 500 signatures to get on the state ballot. So while Clinton had more than enough signatures to be over the 500 limit even after the 150 fradulant signatures were subtracted, Obama obviously did not have enough signatures after the 150 fraudulant signatures were subtracted.

    I haven't suggested anything. I've just stated what the article said. Nothing more, nothing less.

I want to make a point here that no matter what you look like, where you come from, how you worship, who you love, how you identify, and yeah, how you run, that if you have good public policy ideas, if you are well qualified for office, bring those ideas to the table, because this is your America, too. This is our commonwealth of Virginia, too.

    Baseball has its "explosive macroseconds**".. as does tennis, in a way.
    Neither are boring, but I can fall asleep while watching most anything...so I must recant the "boring".
    I cannot fall asleep whist playing baseball**, or chess - one could say that chess is boring......lol
