(flush) Bud = dummmy tie a string around that wallet, if you don't have enough sense to hold on to it.

Don't have to; I'm blessed and when I lose it, it always comes back to me.

bfra, the cow needs a tall glass of grow up.
Yeah, and blanket, you are just the big cow pile that can get me that glass of grow up. You always belly up to the bar for yours, especially with your big belly and butt.

So please, don't be so holier than thou. You have some skeletons in your "closet" so I hear from a good source. You and bfra both. Two pees in a pod; or is that pot?

Just got home from political event. Met a couple from Romania who are voting for the first time in this election; they are new LEGAL CITIZENS. Gee, it's so funny how some people can just read, relate to and understand the law to the degree that they actually FOLLOW THE LAW. It was sweet to hear them say that the only knew one of the names on the Ballot - Romney. Nice. I am so happy for them. And for America to have new citizens like them. They are truly what America is about. God Bless America.

Loner, you would not know sarcasm if it slapped you in the face.
And so on. No comment on the laws the demoNcrats passed to supress voting?
Like all good party members you ignore the facts.

By: parnell3rd on 10/27/12 at 5:15

Just like how the media is ignoring the facts of the cover up of Bengazi attack that killed our people. If this was a white republican president you all would be going crazy wanting to discuss it. Oh, but you all did give Pres. Clinton a pass for Ruby Ridge and Waco.

By: parnell3rd on 10/27/12 at 5:18

You all give white demoNcrat's a pass when it comes to killing our own citizens.

By: Loner on 10/27/12 at 7:23

Bush & Cheney started two elective wars that have claimed thousands of lives and wasted billions in treasure; but Parnell gave those white guys a pass on all that...but Parnell wants to impeach and destroy the nation's first black POTUS, because 4 US citizens were killed by a mob in Benghazi,....but Parnell is NOT a racist...(sarcasm intended).

I hate to tell you this, Loner but the man sitting in that Oval Office now isn't the first black president. He is, plain, clear and simple, the first black usurper in that office.

Simply because he's using the Democrat ticket makes you accept him. Boy, has he got you and your fellow NCP posters suckered. From the posts I read on you all, one would think you was more intelligent that what you're actually proving yourselves not to be.

But, as I've stated before, if you're fellow communists with him, I understand your backing of him

Use you imagination a little. If you was running for that office and knew you wasn't eligible for it, would you tell the people you wasn't eligible for it but you just wanted to rule this nation?

Hell fire, Loner would you all also accept Fidel Castro if he told you he was a natural born American citizen. Let's throw in Vladimir Putin, would you also accept him... just because he told you so?

We have 11 days left and the sh!t is going to hit the fan because Barry has no intention of giving that office up.

Sorry, I hit that button too quick. I meant to add: I hope you guys are kidding on your posts, Loner, because if you aren't, you're going to get one helluva surprise showing on of two things; either your ignorance... or your communist favoritism.

By: yogiman on 10/27/12 at 10:20

Sorry again; s/h/b one of two things. And I will add: in the hard way. You will either have fun... or suffer, and I don't think you will have fun.

Back to your original post: With the advancement of so many technologies it should be easy to get an ID and place it in the national file.

But I guess too many wouldn't get to vote enough times per election, would they?

Did anyone see the report on Dateline last nght on the KKK? We truly have some crazy people in this world of ours. The Grand Wizard say that if President Obama is reelcted, we would.have an uprising., and other racial rantings. He siad that the white race was superior and that they should be separated from the others. I'm sure this is on their website, take a look. This should scare every voter that votes for the GOP.They took pride in burning a cross. If these people are so religious, why burn a cross? The Wizard said that he packs heat everywhere he goes. One Wizard would not show his face becasue he was afraid that he would be fired from hs job. He stated that the KKK Clan was everywhere among us. We have gone back 200 years, but today's clan is more dangerous.

By: Captain Nemo on 10/27/12 at 11:36

I did not see that last night, but I have seen others shows about it. We have a few on this site that want to be that dangerous, but don't have the courage.

Are you drunk, pswindle, or too frightened by what you're posting on?

Voter ID, in my opinion, isn't really the controversy.

If the push had been immediately following the last election, the uproar would not have been as strong.

The driving force behind the backlash to the voter ID law is the timing, right before an election. True, this issue was in the news a year before, if I recall correctly, but the Republicans knew most citizens don't pay close attention to government, especially our alleged, somewhat deficient leadership(?) in Tennessee who seemed so distracted by guns, gays, creationism, and other nonsensical issues as to be a joke.

Just as Mayor Dean and the sock puppet city council scheming to build MCC, state law makers realized most folks don't pay much attention to the usually routine blatherings of government. This sad fact allows conniving politicians to manipulate issues by keeping controversial subjects low key until time to spring the trap.

For my part, I am going to vote using my passport as identification merely in an attempt to fluster poll workers.

I wonder how many will be too ignorant to recognize a federally issued identification?

Tennessee, firmly entrenched in the mid 20th century, plunging boldly forward even further into the past, will likely fall for the three R's (Romney, Ryan, Republicans) snake oil show, but the remainder of the country still has a chance.

A good point on the voter ID issue going on for a full year, Ask01. Now, consider the legality issue of Barack Obama's Constitutional eligibility that's been going on for over 4 years. No one should question an ID to prove they are eligible to run for the presidency of this nation. And everyone has shown their proof except Barack Obama..

That, in itself, is an issue that should have never been needed to be brought up. But after becoming an issue, it should have been solved at least 3 years ago.

Here it is just a few days before the election and Congress has let the issue ride. Good luck on the future of your children... and possible grand children in the future.
