Nonsense. The Supreme Court struck down the section of the Voting Rights Act which forced nineRead MoreSout hern states to get Federal approval before changing their voting laws. Those laws were put in place in the 1960's to ensure that the States would not pass laws intended to keep blacks from voting. The USSC ruled that the law was obsolete because conditions have changed, there is no longer any effort in Southern states to intentionally discriminate at the ballot box, and it would be unfair to continue to single them out for special restrictions when they are behaving no differently than any other state. It was the correct ruling. The League as flatly stated that voters will be encountering discrimination in November. If so, let's see the evidence. If not, then please stop the race baiting. It is socially corrosive and irresponsible.

Steve's S., Cheryl, et al, I did not mean to insult anyone. I, too, have children. I'm not a bigRead Moref an of booze, personally. I don't have it in the home. I love Welch's grape juice: on crushed ice, popsicle form, etc. I'm not belittling the problem of underage drinking. But it's got to be a very small percentage of the REAL problems our young children face: they're obese. Moreover, we happen to spend more on recreation than at any other time in history. Why? What's broken?

Janice is correct. I do have my own blog. I had forgotten the point of it, too: I really don'tRead Morewa nt to start the discussions. No one seems to like my ideas: trim government spending, etc. I do realize that ANY cutback would result in diminished pay, layoffs, or both. However, I do question why we are buying certain things. What are those things? Please tell me. Go to my blog and bring up ONE item in the budget and/or treasury that you think is worth questioning. I'm not sure why demanding line by line, departmentally categorized budgets and treasuries aren't priorities, whereas yelling at each other over Whole Foods, DD, booze, and tackle football are worth it. What are we spending over $100 million on???

How often are guns by private citizens used to stop violent crimes? If you can provide this infoRead Morefro m a source that is giving you all the facts instead of providing you with bits of information by people with an agenda who don't want you to see the whole picture.
