Contraception insurance and the Catholic church
(Government, Law, Politics, Society)
by J. B. Cannon (27 February 2012 16:58:07)

The problem with all this goes much further than infringing on the First Amendment. This is another case of the government usurping more power and eroding our liberties. How on Earth is it okay for the government to tell a private business what products it must offer and for how much?

Occupy Wall Street, Part 2
by J. B. Cannon (20 February 2012 17:02:27)

I want to revisit the Occupy movement, to offer a key point I''m not hearing anywhere else. Most of the Occupy folks I''ve seen in videos are young adults fresh out of college. Part of their complaint is they have a huge student loan debt and no job prospects. I blame the ''everyone gets a trophy mentality'' for their upset. Let me explain.

Will someone please tell me why it''s okay to require a photo ID to board a plane, to purchase alcohol or cigarettes, apply for food stamps or welfare, cash a check, open a bank account, etc. but heaven forbid we insist on a photo ID in order to cast a ballot, one of the most important things we do as citizens. It''s ridiculous. AG Holder and those who are against these new photo ID laws claim they discriminate against minorities, but that''s simply untrue. According to Chris Whitmire, a spokesman for the South Carolina State Election Commission, the law provides exemptions: for those who vote by absentee ballot, have a religious objection to having their photo taken, or due to a "reasonable impediment" like a physical disability. So if it''s truly too difficult for you to provide a photo ID, vote by absentee.
