It's racist to ask for a photo I.D. for voting... But, not when buying beer, a car, cold medicine, etc.

News

The debate about voter rights is now fully engaged. The DOJ has stepped in and declared new laws requiring a photo ID to be invalid.

Here is a list of some of the activities that currently require a valid photo identification to:

  • buy alcohol... beer or hard liquor
  • writing a check at most places
  • applying for credit
  • closing on a loan
  • getting a passport
  • getting on an airplane
  • adopting a pet
  • open a bank account
  • get medical care
  • serve on jury duty (in most places)
  • buying a car
  • rent a car
  • register a car
  • buy cigarettes, tobacco products.... if you look young enough
  • purchasing certain prescription drugs and in some states - it is required to purchase certain cold medicine
  • cash transactions of $5,000 or more

I wonder if Chris Matthews, Al Sharpton, and the rest of the MSNBC crew think the above requirements are racist too?

Here's ANOTHER of the almost daily segments on MSNBC calling Voter ID laws attempts to suppress the voting rights of minorities and seniors. You should also note Chris Matthews' idea. Instead of making current IDs a way to validate votes, Matthews wants to create more government jobs to photograph each voter.
