I think that it is going to come back to bite them in the butt; come election time, I think more people than they have anticipated will have gotten their IDs and many people that they have assumed have them already are gonna have trouble getting them.

Yep, I think you're right, Sunnubian!! I think the fact that this attempted treachery was found out early enough to be able to start doing something about it - couple with the positive efforts of the Obama Administration/Dept. of Justice to quash many of these states' laws - will make it so that "they" are not able to disenfranchise as many people as they HOPE they will!!! But also, I'm thinking - and with any luck - that their biggest "bite-in-the-butt" will come from their own mouths ....

When one thinks about it, Jail is no different than the cages in a Zoo. Animals are caged in the zoo; human beings are caged in jails. Imagine being in a cement cell, with a small window, a cot and a nasty, filthy toilet. If one's not crazy enough going in, one sure will be crazy staying in one of those things. Not only that, folks sexing each other in the anus every chance they get or licking each other like lollipops. I don't know about the people that are there for whatever reason; I...

Nestle CEO Says You Shouldn’t Have The Right to Water Water is essential to the human body and having access to good, clean water, should be a right of every person on this planet.

CEO of Nestle , Peter Brabeck The way in which this sociopath clearly has zero regard for the human race outside of his own wealth and the development of Nestle, who has been caught funding attacks against GMO labeling, can be witnessed when watching and listening to his talk on the issue. This is a company that actually goes into struggling rural areas and extracts the groundwater for their bottled water products, completely destroying the water supply of the area without any compensation .
