HBO: The Newsroom: The Greater Fool Broadcast


This is my first satire about voter id and that is because this is a very serious issue. Because we literally talking about perhaps the most anti-democratic pieces of legislation that America has ever seen at least going back to the 1960s and 70s. It is not a solution looking for a problem, it is bad policy without a problem to fix at all. To put it frankly, it is about preventing loyal Democrats from voting. People who wouldn’t need id’s for anything, like senior citizens and college students, at least not state-issued id’s.

Neoconservatives, because that is exactly what they are and I’m with the Jeff Daniels character on this one, when they won back a bunch of state legislatures and governorships in 2010, especially in big traditional Democratic states like Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin, discovered they enjoyed power. Actually they love power, they loved power as much as Jim Morrison loved alcohol or John Candy loved food. And also discovered that if they put their policies and laws through, people in those states, especially big Democratic states would vote them out and they would be out of power, the thing they love.

So how do you hold onto power without winning reelection? You stop the opposition from voting, you after their traditional base and make it difficult for them to vote. A better term for voter id would be the Democratic Voter Prevention Act or DVPA and then name the state that currently has a Tea Party government instead of Republican government. To be a Republican, I think you actually have to believe in republicanism. That makes sense to me at least. “I know how we’ll win and get reelected! We’ll stop the other sides’ core base from voting! Gee that’s the ticket!” Unfortunately for them, this is unconstitutional and has been thrown out in states like Pennsylvania.

About Derik Schneider

I’m an easy going guy who is never afraid to crack a joke. I’m almost always in a good mood, I believe the happier you are the better off you’ll be & the longer you’ll live. I believe in living life rather than being alive. Very hard to get me down. I tease because I care. I try to find humor in everything & everyone that I see. I tease anyone that I respect, care about, like, or love. If I’m not joking around with you, or teasing you, it is because I don’t know you well, don’t like you or you don’t mean a whole hell of a lot to me. I blog about a lot of different things, because I have a lot of different interests and knowledgeable about a lot of those areas. How knowledgeable I am, you can decide that for yourself by checking out my blog. And we can talk about what is what in an adult professional manner. And perhaps even learn things from each other that we didn’t know going in.
