I volunteer on the west side of Columbus. It's not a "bad" area, but a little seedy. Yesterday I parked so I could make it through the snow, and noticed a sign on the door of an employment agency. Not one, but two, forms of ID were required to apply for a job. Must be a racist organization, although I'm pretty sure it was a government contractor.
On Monday I picked up my list of prescription charges from the pharmacy for our taxes. My husband is not allowed to pick up the list. I’m there a lot; they know me. After giving them my name and birthdate, and they brought up the record on the computer, they asked for a photo ID.
In Illinois, the president’s home state, there is a new law that took effect on January 1, 2012 requiring all people who purchase drain cleaners or any caustic substances to provide a government issued photo ID. This happened because someone back in 2008 used a caustic substance to hurt someone.
North Carolinians marching to protest voter-ID laws had to present a valid photo ID to participate in an NAACP-hosted protest against voter-ID laws in Raleigh last Saturday.
And yet the Democrats claim that there is very little voter fraud. How would they know? And how much is a little? And why don’t they want people to have identification for cashing checks, or picking up prescriptions, or applying for jobs? So they can keep them helpless victims, dependent on politicians?
