Voter ID December 29, 2011

Again, it is time that the adults take control. And when I say adults I mean people who have a shred of common sense. Just a touch, enough to engage in rational thought without flying off into some whacked out world controlled by a politically motivated ideology.

I speak of the requirement to show proof positive identification before voting.

Attorney General Eric Holder, has his Justice department fighting South Carolina’s attempt to require voters to provide photo ID before they vote. In a Holder world no one need prove who they are before casting a vote. Of course, nothing could possibly go wrong with an honor system at the polls. No one would think twice of voting twice or voting as someone who might have voting rights when they don’t. Of course most of the folks who don’t have a photo ID are poor citizens who historically have voted for democrats. The Left’s argument has always been that if poor people somehow have to have an ID it would keep them from voting. Huh? What’s the rationale for that? So I guess these same people don’t participate in any of the following that require a photo ID:

Get a driver’s license
Apply for a job
Get a Social Security card
Buy alcohol
Buy cigarettes
Apply for welfare
Apply for food stamps
Cash a check
Purchase a firearm
Make any large credit card purchase
Open a bank account
Rent an apartment
Be admitted to a hospital
Get a marriage license
Adopt a pet
Fly on an airplane
Have something notarized
The list just goes on and on….

So these ID-less people don’t even get welfare or food stamps? But they want to vote? Who are these people?

We make it a requirement for so many other less important things, proving who you are to vote should be a no-brainer. I go one step further and say we need a National ID card, issued to all naturally born citizens at 18. It could be issued by the residing State with a driver’s license on one side and the National ID on the other. Along with a photo, it should contain biometric proof that couldn’t be hacked or changed. As an American citizen I would be proud to have and show proof that I was a citizen in the greatest country on earth.

We need to take back three branches of government and return this country to sanity.

It’s long but very well written. If you want to know why we have to replace Obama and keep the Tea Party rolling, this is the article you must read.

Here is proof that there should be people on this earth that make more money and have more stuff than other people.

 The folks who can answer these questions (or just one!) deserve to make more money and reap the benefits that God’s gift of intelligence provides them.

1. What’s the next number in this sequence: 10, 9, 60, 90, 70, 66 … ?

2. You’re in a car with a helium balloon on a string that is tied to the floor. The windows are closed. When you step on the gas pedal, what happens to the balloon—does it move forward, move backward, or stay put? 

3. Using only a four-minute hourglass and a seven-minute hourglass, measure exactly nine minutes—without the process taking longer than nine minutes.

4. A book has N pages, numbered the usual way, from 1 to N. The total number of digits in the page numbers is 1,095. How many pages does the book have? 

5. A man pushed his car to a hotel and lost his fortune. What happened?

These 5 questions were asked of job interviewees at Google. Google receives a million job applications a year. It’s estimated that only about 1 in 130 applications results in a job. By comparison, about 1 in 14 high-school students applying to Harvard gets accepted.

Answers are Here.

It simply could not be clearer. It is us against them. Conservatives vs. Liberals.

We conservatives must win to preserve the American way of life we have known for over 200 years. If Obama gets re-elected and we do not take control of the Senate, the country will falter into a socialist morass and be lost forever.

We cannot sustain the entitlement society we have created. There must be an end to the hand-outs. People must stand on their own two feet and live the life they were given by God.

Our system provides for the opportunity for anyone to succeed with hard work and a little luck. Not everyone will be driving a BMW and living poolside but as long as you have two good arms and legs and the desire to work, you will have food and shelter and clothes on your back.

Envy and coveting your neighbor’s things are a sin. Stop worrying about what you don’t have and be thankful for what you do have. Find God. Pray and do unto others as you would have them do unto you.

Yes, it’s real.

Frans Lanting took this photo in Africa at dawn. The background is a looming sand dune already in the sun. The white spots are swatches of grass. The foreground is still in shadow so the white clay looks gray and the trees are perfectly shadowed.  Awesome.
