MN’s voter ID push being funded by corporate lobbyists & super rich, will largely affect poor and minorities http://bit.ly/AxgL8t
Saw a clip of a woman in her 70's...had voted since the 50's....could not vote now because she didn't have a birth certificate. Well, she didn't have a birth certificate, because at the time she was born...they were not giving birth certificates to black people! Get it? She wasn't deemed worthy enought to have her birth noted.
So--the gvt that didn't register her birth is now denying her a vote due to their predjudicial polices of the past. Oh--and their predjudicial policies of 2012. Congrats! Welcome to the land of "everybody's free".
I am from Louisiana. I voted for Buddy Roemer. I was disappointed after he took office. I had just begun my new job in Baton Rouge and was attending a meeting where one of his environmental officials announced that the department was proposing a new rule. She added that industry should not comment on the rule, because it was just fine the way it was. As a new lobbyist, I was taken aback. Industries are corporate citizens. As a former reporter, I was shocked to think that a government official would not want to hear feedback from the people who are going to be impacted by the new rule. You may not accept it, but you should listen.
Buddy Roemer is a nice guy, but he was not a great governor.
Rosanne Barr has never said anything to impress me. She can run, but why?
