Yesterday, Karen and I stepped into the Apple retail store in Century City, purchased the nifty new iPad and the nice Apple salesman would not run our credit card without proof of I.D.
I was wearing my yarmulke, so maybe Apple is, y’know, anti-Semitic.
But no, not likely because I saw them asking for ID from black people, Asians, Latinos, Muslims, and gasp! White Anglos.
Okay, I get it, everyone has to show ID in order to circumvent fraud. Because the world is full of liars and thieves and cheats and unless productive members of society take common sense measures to protect the honest from the dishonest chaos will result.
Attorney General Eric Holder said Tuesday he opposes a new photo ID requirement in Texas elections because it would be harmful to minority voters.
In remarks to the NAACP in Houston, the attorney general said the Justice Department “will not allow political pretexts to disenfranchise American citizens of their most precious right.”
Addressing the NAACP convention in Houston, Texas on Tuesday, Attorney General Eric Holder said despite the Supreme Court’s ruling striking down most of Arizona’s voter ID law, he remains wary of the provision that allows local law enforcement to verify the immigration status of anyone they suspect to be illegal.
Under the law passed in Texas, Holder said that “many of those without IDs would have to travel great distances to get them — and some would struggle to pay for the documents they might need to obtain them.”
“We call those poll taxes,” Holder added spontaneously, drawing applause as he moved away from the original text of his speech with a reference to a fee used in some Southern states after slavery’s abolition to disenfranchise black people.
The Democrat talking points are this:
1. Asking for ID is racist.
2. There is no reason to ask for ID because there is no voter fraud.
To which we respond:
1. Every American should be required to show ID in order to vote in an election.
2. Saying there is no voter fraud is like saying that we live in prelapsarian Eden.
Furthermore, the State of Texas will issue a free Election Identification Card if requested.
What’s really going on is very simple. The Democrats count on the votes of dead people, felons, and illegal immigrants. Especially in the upcoming election which promises to be close.
Eric Holder is supposed to be the chief law enforcement officer of these United States. Instead he’s just another vulgar race hustler whose primary job is trolling America’s underbelly for Democrat votes.
