Liberals Looking For Donations to "Overcome Pennsylvania’s Voter ID Law", Meanwhile Photo ID’s Can be Obtained For Free
An e-mail from Daily Kos Campaign Manager, Chris Bowers announces ‘big news’ regarding voter ID laws in Pennsylvania. Bowers explains:
A huge coalition of 100+ labor and civil rights groups has come together to do the door knocking, phone banking and voter education necessary to make sure everyone in this must-win swing state can still cast a ballot.
At Daily Kos, we’re helping out by running online ads in Pennsylvania to sign up more than 1,000 volunteers so that this coalition has the people power it needs. Please, click here to contribute $3 to Daily Kos so that we can sign up the thousands of volunteers needed to overcome Pennsylvania’s voter ID law.
First off, if you live in Pennsylvania, please put your money back in your pocket. Instead of attempting to ‘overcome’ a law, put forth the effort to actually follow said law.
Second, why not sign up an army of volunteers to assist the citizens of Pennsylvania in obtaining their photo ID, as opposed to fighting a law that requires it?
Third, instead of donating $3 to the Daily Kos to fight an alleged effort at voter suppression, I’d like to offer better advice on how to fight that suppression … and it’s free.
Here it is – head down to your local DMV in Pennsylvania and obtain your very own photo ID for voting purposes. It is of no cost to you, and the turnaround time for obtaining such ID is estimated at 10 days. This gives one plenty of time to receive their ID to use legally in the November elections.
Voila! No more suppression. (If you still fill the need to donate, please consider a contribution to the Mental Recession as a show of appreciation for such sound advice).
The entire process is outlined on the PennDOT DMV website, which concludes with the following statement:
“… to receive your free photo ID for voting purposes. This verification process will take about ten days and does not require the payment of a fee.”
Claiming that a law requiring a person to prove the legality of their vote is voter suppression, is akin to calling laws against bank robbery a form of financial suppression.
The folks over at the Daily Kos and other liberals in general have long complained that the concept of a voter ID law would disenfranchise the poor. For example, this entry cites statements from an advocacy group that claim the Pennsylvania voter ID law hearkens back to the ‘Jim Crow’ era, and would ‘keep the working poor … away from the polls’.
What better way to come to the rescue of the working poor than by asking them for money, as opposed to showing voters how to comply with the law for free?
Had to laugh at this e-mail sent out by Daily Kos founder, Markos Moulitsas:
Rusty, Mitt Romney is at the breaking point:
- Romney’s allies in conservative Super PACs have spent over $100 million attacking President Obama, but the president has been resilient, retaining his lead in both national and swing state polls.
- Republican political operatives are panicking over Romney’s selection of Paul Ryan, who has given Romney virtually no bounce and has been widely panned in key states like Florida.
Unfortunately, that was received right after Romney’s rapid response team released information regarding a poll conducted by Purple Strategies – a bipartisan polling company that prides itself on merging red and blue firms to create one purple entity.
Turns out, just about everything the Kos is selling is the exact opposite of reality. But then, that’s what makes them the liberal hacks they are. Obama is not retaining his lead in swing states – Romney now leads in 3 of 4 key swing states (Ohio, Virginia, and Florida).
Amidst the bedwetting from the consultant class in DC over Romney/ Ryan taking on Obama and the Democrats on Medicare, a new independent, Purple Strategies poll conducted after Ryan’s selection shows independents surging behind Romney/ Ryan.
Full results and summary are below. While Romney leads in 3 of 4 swing states, the MOST important of the poll’s finding is this:
“By a 6-point margin, voters in these key swing states believe that Romney and Ryan are more likely ‘to bring real change to Washington,’ a margin that is +17 among independents”
The complete polling data has been uploaded below…
Look, we know it’s annoying to be constantly falsely accused of conducting a ‘War on Women’, but aren’t you overcompensating just a touch?
From the Huffington Post:
As the only Republican Congressman at a rally for the Equal Rights Amendment on Thursday, Rep. Richard Hanna (R-N.Y.) gave women an unexpected piece of advice: Give your money to Democrats.
“I think these are very precarious times for women, it seems. So many of your rights are under assault,” he told the crowd of mostly women. “I’ll tell you this: Contribute your money to people who speak out on your behalf, because the other side — my side — has a lot of it. And you need to send your own message. You need to remind people that you vote, you matter, and that they can’t succeed without your help.”
Hanna is a pro-choice Republican, making him a pro-abortion, government funded contraception hawk, and thusly a man in the front lines in a ‘War on Children’.
You know you’ve been marching in the lunatic parade when you garner a quote from the Daily Kos. Kaili Joy Gray, a far-left kook who frequently refers to conservatives as ‘tea baggers’ had this to say:
“Words I never thought I’d say, but this Republican member of Congress speaks for me.”
Congratulations Richard Hanna, you speak for loons, that must make you so proud.
When HuffPost asked Hanna after the rally whether he was bucking his party by encouraging women to give their money to “the other side,” he said that he wasn’t.
“I’m trying to help [the GOP],” he said. “I think it’s the appropriate thing to do.”
If your strategy to help the GOP is to feed into the ridiculous fear-mongering being perpetuated by the left, and validating the falsehoods they constantly spew, then yea…
Olbermann and his current liberal friends in the media seem to really be pushing this narrative that rapes at Occupy encampments across the country didn’t happen. Saying something didn’t happen until you believe it, simply indicates some sort of psychotic issue in your own mind. It doesn’t erase the facts.
Daily Kos founder, Markos Moulitsas, made this statement on Olbermann’s show (h/t Weasel Zippers):
“They [Occupiers] can be as filthy and they can rape people — if you want to make stuff up — but the fact is nobody really cares about it because that message isn’t about the messenger, it’s not about who’s delivering a message, but it’s about the message itself which really resonates at a very core emotional level with people who are suffering in this economy.”
First, the only people making things up are Olbermann and Moulitsas, denying these things happened. You can’t stare at a blue sky and try to tell everyone around you that it’s green.
Second, I would imagine those who were victims of the rapes do actually care, along with anyone who has a conscience.
A few months ago I wrote a piece which included a list of transgressions at the Occupy camps, which was labeled ‘Lust’. Remember, this is actually a short list.
Lust is generally considered to constitute an uncontrollable range of sexual thoughts or desires. The Occupiers seem to have an overabundance of this at their protests:
- A 24-year-old convicted sex offender having sex with a 14-year-old at Occupy Dallas.
- Rapes and instances of groping in New York’s Zuccotti Park.
- One rape victim was alleged to have been a deaf man.
- A female protester raped at Occupy Philadelphia.
- Women Only sleeping quarters had to be erected at the New York encampment.
- A permit was yanked in Madison, Wisconsin, due to public masturbation.
- A Los Angeles protester arrested for masturbating in front of children.
