Who said too much teabagging would impair creativity? Prima facie!
Dan Grant August 28, 2012 at 10:41 PM
If you had any understanding of the election process you would understand that there is virtually no fraud in the system. Each district is run by a local Board who for the most part have been there for years and know the people who come into vote. Every candidate on the ballot can have challengers that can question any vote cast if they fear that a person is not registered. The voter must sign a book with a sample signature attached. BTW the day you uncover some Business in Morris County operating with the undocumented then you will show that you are not just on a witchhunt because someone doesn't look like you.
Long Time Resident August 28, 2012 at 10:46 PM
Billy, so how many voter fraud cvases are too many in your opinion if EVERY vote counts? 100...10000? Where did you get your info from? That is like saying a thief only broke into one or two homes so we shouldn't worry about catching them.
William Mays August 28, 2012 at 10:56 PM
Well whats worth more 10 votes that will be gained by making these laws or the thousands that will be lost from the voters who can't obtain id
Long Time Resident August 28, 2012 at 11:05 PM
Billy, I have to believe that you know that every state offers an ID (Driver and non driver) at the State Motor Vehicle agency. There is no excuse for someone NOT to have an ID. Considering that in todays world, where you have to have ID to cash a check, get on a plaane, rent a car, or even open a bank account it's hard to believe someone can't get an ID. Your arguement is specious. Interesting that you ducked my question about how many voter fraud cases are too many.....that says alot.
NothingdoneRIGHT August 28, 2012 at 11:07 PM
On top of Romney being a poor pick by Republicans, now the liar big mouth Chris Chrispy who lied to public employees and the unions is giving the keynote speech. This country is really broken!
James Bombace August 28, 2012 at 11:40 PM
Other speeches needed by the DNC in Charlotte: Bill Clinton and John Edwards (channeling Ted Kennedy) on the Republican war on women. Hillary Clinton on how the Middle East is better off after Obama's Arab Spring. Michelle Obama on nutrition and why her ass is an ax handle wide. Rahm Emmanuel on how the streets of Chicago have gotten safer on his watch. Eric Holder and how his BATF made Mexico a safer place.
Scondo August 28, 2012 at 11:43 PM
There is a hurricane down there! I hope Chris uses his classic line, Quit working on your tan and get the hell off the beach.
Scondo August 28, 2012 at 11:45 PM
Public employees are not exactly on the list of endangered species, so not much in the way of tears being she'd for them
James Bombace August 28, 2012 at 11:50 PM
You just lhave to love those peace loving ultra tolerant liberals. Just in case you missed it here is another one of those wonderful people. Ellen Barkin wants people KILLED because they don't agree with her politics? Really? She wants them DEAD? Really? Is this how weak, insecure, low and empty Democrats have become? Does Obama call this civility? Does Obama endorse this kind of hate-speech? They want you dead, folks, because you don't agree with them. Is there ANY thinking person who votes for Democrats? http://nation.foxnews.com/ellen-barkin/2012/08/28/ellen-barkin-hopes-hurricane-kills-every-pro-life-xenophobic-gay-bashing-sob-rnc

It was probably the 4th Martini talking.

Why have a convention that pisses away MILLIONS of dollars just to hear our lying politicians try to make them look good.Save the money and the BS and take care of our citizens,military,and first responders.
Peter Klymasz August 29, 2012 at 01:20 AM
Would be nice IF instead of a Military Spending greater than 14 biggest spenders, we just matched number 2, Instead of MOONBASES, Camden would become a 21st Century Metropolis, Instead of cheap Oil and Gas leases to Corporations already larger than 99% of the rest of the world in GNP, a tax increase to fund doctors, clinicians, technicians for National healthcare,....THAT WOULD BE MY SPEECH
Oldtimer August 29, 2012 at 01:32 AM
Too bad the public union members that are on here constantly pissing and moaning, aren't smart enough to realize times have changed. There are more TAXPAYERS than there are Union members, and the smart politicians are going to pander to US now. New Jersey taxpayers spoke loud and clear when Christie was elected and politicians across the country took notice. The folks in Trenton aren't stupid, they know as soon as you qualify for your pension check, you'll move out state,so they are going to get everything they can from you now, and I think they are doing a damn good job of it.
William Mays August 29, 2012 at 01:58 AM
I don't know how many are too many, but answer my question. Whats worth more, those ten votes or the thousands that will be lost if these laws are put in effect. Elderly people can't go to the DMV and wait in long lines. You shouldn't have to go to the DMV to be able to exercise your CONSTITUTIONAL right to vote.
William Mays August 29, 2012 at 01:59 AM
Most thinking people votes for Democrats if you care to look at the statistics. Look at which party has more college graduates and what colleges they graduated.
William Mays August 29, 2012 at 02:00 AM
Union members pay taxes too.
James Bombace August 29, 2012 at 10:25 AM
Billy said....Elderly people can't go to the DMV and wait in long lines. You shouldn't have to go to the DMV to be able to exercise your CONSTITUTIONAL right to vote. Show me where it says you have a CONSTITUTIONAL right to vote in the Constitution. Let me do you a favor Billy and save you some time. There is NOTHING in the Constitution giving someone the right to vote. The DMV does not always have long lines and even if they did why can't elderly people go to the DMV and wait in long lines. If voting is so important to them that would be a small price to pay. I doubt we would be hearing of elderly people dying at the DMV waiting for an ID.
James Bombace August 29, 2012 at 10:35 AM
Yea Billy and these so called college educated elected officials on both sides (Democrat and Republican) have screwed up this country to where we borrow 40 cents of every dollar we spend. I don't need a college education to know that is crazy. You are so blind in your being a party supporter you can't see the forest through the trees. Your so called educated Democrats are no better then the Republicans
sosonj August 29, 2012 at 11:37 AM
Just one speech by a former official of either Bush presidency, that of Ms Rice, the architect of the failed Afghan and Iraq wars. But no one in the GOP is willing to acknowledge the failings of Bush 43 or the limitations and flaws of capitalism.
Larry Reid August 29, 2012 at 11:42 AM
Well... someone is upset that Obama is about to be headed bad to the thug city of Chicago. So you hate capitalism do ya? And how did you post your message here? On a computer? Using the internet? How was that financed? CAPITALISM you idiot.
Long Time Resident August 29, 2012 at 11:58 AM
Billy, The answer to your question is the ten votes are worth more than the thousands. I would rather be assured that there are NO outside (non American) votes in any of our elections. If that prevented an American who chose not to obtain an ID so they could vote then so be it. Thanks Mr. Bombace for your contribution to this discussion. Your comment is right on point. If it's so important to a person that they be able to vote then it should be equally important to that person to get a proper ID from their states DMV which is simple to do.
M.A.Dawson August 29, 2012 at 12:01 PM
If you can't get to the DMV, how do you get to the polls?
Long Time Resident August 29, 2012 at 12:35 PM
Mr. Grant, Really, no voter fraud. What planet do you live on? There have been cases where DEAD people have voted in local and state elections! In October, KTVU Channel 2 cross-checked California's state death registry record across voter lists in the nine Bay Area counties, finding that in eight elections in the last ten years, "232 people with death certificates had voted after they had died – some more than once." 153 of these cases were from one county, And illegals being permitted to vote is just as bad. http://www.ballotpedia.org/wiki/index.php/Dead_people_voting Care to explain how that can happen? How can a local Board member who has been there for years and knows the people who come into vote allow someone to vote for a DEAD person? Or do you believe the DEAD person actually voted? I would love to hear your explination. Read this and explain to me again how Illegals can't vote....... http://www.federalobserver.com/2010/05/09/08-04-08-illegal-immigrants-are-voting-in-american-elections/ I await your reply.
hrhppg August 29, 2012 at 01:03 PM
No it's more like saying a thief broke into one or two homes so residents 10,000 should have their homes foreclosed on to stop the burglars. Long Time Resident of what, narrow perspective town ?
William Mays August 29, 2012 at 01:36 PM
Some people don't own a car and there isn't a DMV in their town, how are they supposed to get there. By the way, you obviously have no clue about anything in the Constitution, since it pretty much guarantees your right to vote after age 18. But its ok for you to flip s*** when someone challenges your "right" to own a machine gun, using language that is unclear.
William Mays August 29, 2012 at 01:38 PM
Yes because they don't have internet in places other than Capitalist countries. People like you are the problem with this country. They should deport dumbasses like you, and not all those hard working Mexicans.
William Mays August 29, 2012 at 01:41 PM
Can you link a reputable news source and not some conservative BS? I don't know where you've gotten this BS from but the facts are that there have been ten cases of voter fraud in the past 12 years, most occurring during the Bush administration. The new id laws are being put in by Republicans to suppress the elderly and Black votes.
Long Time Resident August 29, 2012 at 01:49 PM
Mr. Mays Can you link a reputable news source and not some leftist BS to support your claim tht the new ID laws are being put in by Republicans to suppress the elderly and Black votes.....and if you can explain how requiring and ID, which can be obtained by ANY legimiate American citizen, supresses anyone from voting.
Long Time Resident August 29, 2012 at 01:57 PM
Mr. Mays, Ok I wil, reply to your questions & statements one at a time ...... You said - Some people don't own a car and there isn't a DMV in their town, how are they supposed to get there. My Reply - Bus, Taxi, son or daughter, Neighbor, Train. This is how these people get around day to day why doesn't that work to get to the DMV? . You said - By the way, you obviously have no clue about anything in the Constitution, since it pretty much guarantees your right to vote after age 18. My Reply - Once again I ask you to quote for me from the Constitution where a Citizen is guaranted the right to vote. You Said - But its ok for you to flip s*** when someone challenges your "right" to own a machine gun, using language that is unclear. My Reply - I don't remember saying anything about this issue.....why did you feel the need to bring this up. Could it be your trying to side step the issue we are discussing?
