    .... saying "we need to do whatever it takes to help voters obtain whatever records they need....

    ... we cannot let them win."

    First off, the entire nation needs to become ANGRY ENOUGH to do something about this instead of sitting there passively on their behinds not caring what the Supreme Abomination rules on next.

    Second, this isn't losing or winning, which implies a contest in which there are rules and  both sides agree to play under them, this is plain, naked, vicious stealing, where the mugging was done by bureaucrats saying "papers please."

    Think of all the people becoming transient or having to move in the next few months, having to establish residency in a new house ( I mean new situation ) and getting new voter id.  Yet another way the mortgage finance meltdown disenfranchises people.

    It's not just cost, it's information access, as much of this application process for anything is expected to be done by computer over the internet. So there's fees for that, too, and the cost of the computer and accessories.

    The very people who need to be reading this can't.

    What the f*ck else could anyone expect from this Court of Thieves.

    But when Congress does nothing, and they will not, we can't throw them off the bench.

    We continue to use polite phrasing when what they do, or don't do to defend voters, is obscene.

      and Thomas .. for starters.

      •  Scalia, Roberts, Alito (0+ / 0-)

        ... there would be blowback from a Thomas impeachment, and he is so quiet on the bench I think if he lost his conservative "friends" he'd just retire out quickly, having no one to follow.

        Scalia's the worst of the lot.
