    Good morning TOD’ville. I’ve been away at training these last three days (ugh) but grateful I have a job so I won’t complain too much. I was following everything and I just want to say out loud that the speech was magnificent and that this site was so good at keeping me up on everything that was going on. I had to watch everything on my smart phone.

    Thanks Chips for all that you do!

      Yes! Maybe we can see a 45-second clip of the tea fool party debate on Monday night, which CNN is wasting time and money to cover. Just give us the buzzwords, CNN.

        Did anyone see the picture of Perry having his hand on Paul’s arm and pointing his finger at Paul. Looks like Perry might not have been to please with something Paul said.

    Taxes, taxes, taxes, Ronald Reagan, taxes, tax cuts, President Reagan, no taxes, taxes, taxes……… It’s so pathetic and predictable. No one talked about a comphrensive plan to improve the economy and put people back to work.

      So the GOP have sent the President a letter saying they are willing to work with him concerning the jobs bill. I don’t trust the GOP, the T-Party Republicans.

        Here’s how they will ‘work together’ in tea party-speak: we get everything we want in the jobs bill and Obama and the Democrats get nothing.

        We’ve been here before.

        Hopefully the American people are waking up to this b.s.

    Was checking the twitterverse and DWS is getting some pushback on voter ID from RightWingers. Which leads me to a thought about voter suppression. On the face of it, showing your id seems like not a big deal right? But it is because it takes away that part of the population that are poor, homeless etc and don’t have an id. the other is same day voter registration – take that away and you have taken another part of the population that finally is going to go vote but now they can’t. sorry. no same day voter registration for you bub.

    Am I sounding sane here? Does anyone else have a helpful insight into this argument on voter suppression?

      All of the arguments you pose – and others – are sound. That doesn’t matter to the Rs, since they are trying to suppress the vote, state by state, of so many on the side of what’s fair and good and just and needed for our country. I forgot to check in on Sen. Durbin’s kickoff hearing on the various state “voter suppression” laws, which I think he started last week. Will try to look into that, this weekend. He’s my senator – yes!!!!

      No you are not insane. Especially when they don’t tell the poor that the voter ids are “FREE”. In WI an employee was fired because he told another employee the voter ids were free.

      a4alice, maybe it wouldn’t be such a bad idea if they were to have it in the next Presidential election. 2016, then it will give people time to hear about it and get it done, but you see this whole thing is not about voter fraud, it’s about preventing certain members the people from voting, the ones who usually vote for Democrats. That is what the right wing rats are up too.

      Americans have a right to vote…..period. Voter fraud is a trumped up and pretty much baseless spin presented to you by the GOP. And a person’s financial standing should be of zero import when it comes to their right to vote. GOP looks for every opportunity to leverage the laws in their favor, unfortunately fair isn’t a factor in their strategies.

      People really need to think deeply about what infringing on those rights means, as an individual, as a member of a community and a nation. Especially, to a representative government ithat is designed to be of,for,and by the people…..serious, serious stuff.

      Rev Al had a segment about WI ID requirements and their putting in writing in correspondence to the DMV to NOT tell people the $28 for the photo ID can be waived and they could have it for free. An employee of DMV emailed others to be sure to tell everyone they knew that the IDs could be obtained for free and he was fired.

    Even more proof of the lost-base from Richmond:

    You’re absolutely right about the voter ID laws. Rev. Al talked about this yesterday, and what it amounts to, when you have to PAY for it is a poll tax, and he believes it is a violation of the Voting Rights Act, and I know he is right. I expect some lawsuits, and injunctions against these laws. They must be abolished. Any pushback against DWS is only from hard right right wingers who want only white males to vote. YOU are the sane ones. This may be our biggest battle of alll

    I watched the videoon YOutube as redirected. What I love about President Obama rallies is the good nature of all attending, and the complete diversity of people! No anger, no yelling, no ugly signs…….this is the real America, as he so often says.

      Agreed. The people attending the President’s rallies are always smiling and happy. Repug gatherings are always full of unhappy looking people who seem so angry. How can any one be so angry all the time. I’ll take smiles and diversity any day!!!

      The joy and happiness is palpable…comes right through the medium. President Obama is a formidable force for all that is good. I believe were he not, we would not see those that oppose him so desperate and openly engaged. He is drawing them into the light of day……and into the awareness of the American people.

      We have a very real and urgent responsibility to support fully his efforts….I know everyone here treats it as such. We have to increase our reach…keep spreading the word and engaging people. I know I converted 2 this week…so I feel like I accompolished something good.

      I’m hoping the DOJ steps in and if every state could find a group to sue on behalf of voters, we might be able to delay implementation.

      The R’s are hoping to create a lot of confusion among local municipalities so that they won’t be able to handle the presidential high turnout and thus cause problems and backups for voters. We have to be prepared to fight for every vote.

    I heard about this incident in Wisconsin on another site yesterday. I called the Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division. I spoke to someone in the Deputy District Attorney’s office and asked if they were looking into the republican governors new voting laws that were making it harder to vote in democratic districts. I told her about what happened in Wisconsin: that the DMV were not planning on telling anyone that the Voter ID cards are free and if they didn’t ask for them they would charge a $28 fee. When someone from another state agency sent an email telling them to tell everyone they know to make sure they ask for the Id’s, he was fired. She told me that they have been receiving calls about the new laws, and they are looking into it.
