The Watch Dog response: This is why I am a Life Fully Paid Member of the NAACP. Don’t tell me you are about what is good for black folk and all folk if you ain’t a part of the solution. You see some of you just celebrated Dr. Martin L. King Jr. Holiday and now beginning today you are going to celebrate Black History Month. The fight goes beyond January and February. So when you say I am acting like I am ignant, well I am because I get ignant around folk who are not about what is good and just for all people. Trust me I know who you are.

The Political Agitator’s response: Anyone black, brown, white and other that believe in doing what is right and fair know that the Voter ID Law is far from either. The issue is some ignant racist white folk just happen to have the power, they used their white privilege to attempt to afford even good white folk who know it ain’t right to be able to benefit from such. Hell no all white folk don’t like it! But one thing about it, as Rev. William Keys preached today, I Believe God! I believe one one day the Voter ID will be made right and fair.
WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — Rosanell Eaton still remembers the day 70 years ago when she traveled two hours with her mother in a mule-drawn wagon to register to vote at the county courthouse. Before she could, she was forced to take a literacy test.
“What are you here for, little lady?” Eaton recalls a man at the courthouse asked her. When she told him, he instructed her, “don’t miss a word and speak the Preamble of the Constitution of the United States of America.”
“Without missing a word, I did it,” she said. (Source: Read more)
The voter-ID war just opened up a huge new front. This time in Tennessee. A group of nine students from HBCUs Fisk and Tennessee State have filed a federal lawsuit against the Volunteer State’s heavily contested and controversial voter-ID law.
The suit was filed by the Nashville Student Organizing Committee, a coalition of student activists established in February 2014. The plaintiffs were all disallowed from voting in 2014 because they carried student IDs as identification. NSOC retained the Washington, D.C.-based Fair Elections Legal Network, which then partnered with the local Nashville-based firm Barrett Johnston Martin & Garrison as part of a legal project to restore student voting rights in the state.

My FB colleagues seem to get a little squeamish when I, rural NC Born Ken Humphrey speak of ‘resurfaced racism’…..Folks I live amongst my rural suthin’ colleages’…they will vote to bring the US down before they will support anything this black Democratic President proposes. I went to college, graduated in the former capital of the conferacy, Richmond, Va…..Racism is alive and well just outside of town – anywhere in Dixie. Ken Humphrey

The Political Agitator response: Well stated but as usual those who think the Republicans figured something out is going to twist the truth. Great article!
A report issued last week by the N.C. State Board of Elections underscored glaring problems with voter registration in North Carolina and elsewhere. But it’s difficult to see how producing a photo ID at the polls will eliminate what might have occurred in the 2012 elections.
Executive Director Kim Strach, who compiled the report, urged caution even as she presented her findings.
A cross-check of voting rolls in 28 states uncovered 765 registered voters in North Carolina who shared the same name, same date of birth and same last four Social Security number digits of voters who were registered in another state. Strach’s investigation determined that those 765 people voted in both states. (Source: Read more)
The problem is there has not been Voter Fraud and they have admitted that so we all know that that is not the reason why they voted to do it. I am talking about why they said they were doing it versus a reason to do it. Obviously some folks think they are assuring fairness hell assure other things that are happening daily rather than once or twice a year at the most.
Talking about spending trillions of dollars on non-sense the good ole boys have always done that from the local level all the way to the national level. “Our” current President inherited the majority of the debt that we see because of how he had to deal with the Republicans but they don’t want to talk about that but want to make it seems as if he had no option. I was just informed 2 days ago again although I already knew the story about the debt when my Congressman held a meeting in Rocky Mount NC.
Why in the hell don’t they assure that they stop the ignance when it comes to blocking everything that the President does and good Democrats. I know damn well everything he does is not a bad thing in everyone’s eyes but just because he is a Black man some are willing to take the country to hell while trying to mislead folks that it is “Our” President when it is clear that it is racist Republicans. Not all Republicans but I repeat the racist ones and some ignant racist Democrats but I must admit they have some ignant Black folks brainwashed also.
The racist Republicans turned down the Medicaid expansion in NC that would not cost them anything for several years and then afterwards the Federal Government would pay 95%. Nope voted against it because it is a part of “Obamacare.”
The government has spent trillions of dollars on non-sense all of my life long before “Our” current President so what is the problem? We have a Black President that is the problem.
But there will be a wake up call and I don’t think it will be long because when it hit home the right homes it will be those same guys whom thought that all of this b.s. sounded good but when it affect them they will not be able to handle it and they are going to turn on them. I just want to be able to say I told you so.
Today is the new form of slavery however some white folks don’t even recognize that they will be slaves but maybe they don’t know or they don’t care as long as it appears that it looks like the Black man is the problem.
Somebody said to me today it is funny how when the Po Po come get ready to lock somebody up that they do not ask for a Photo Id. Now that is funny but interesting.
After thinking about this I wonder what is the ratio of someone getting arrested due to a case of mistaken identity versus voter fraud?
