  1. God almighty, but I gotta wonder about the voter ID laws being defended on the prevalence of the use of photo ID in other aspects of our lives. Yes I have to show my ID to buy booze, but unlike buying booze I have a right to vote. No one is denying me what I am owed by the constitution by not selling me hooch without verifying my age.
