Re: North Carolina Shows Why the Voting Rights Act Is Still Needed - http://www.thenation.com/blog...
"Here In Florida, a Photo ID has been required since 1999, we have never had Same-Day Registration, You can vote out of Precinct but only on a Provisional Ballot, We don't finance Judicial Elections that I am aware of, and we do have Early Voting although some people argue we don't have enough. So if all of that is Voter Suppression I guess we have been doing it since 1845." - Michael K Pate

Re: How Fox News, CNN, and MSNBC Covered Nelson Mandela’s Passing - http://www.mediaite.com/tv...
"I realize that Christopher isn't actually a reporter but this was a mighty biased report. I happened to have Fox on yesterday evening and even though I was in the other room for much of the time and turned away around 7:15 to watch some NetFlix, the characterization above was pretty different from what I remember. It isn't the quantity of the programming, it is the quality. He didn't bother to mention that Jesse Jackson actually appeared on Fox before 7 pm. He didn't mention the panel discussion where Charles Krauthammer, George Will, and Kirsten Powers spoke about how amazing Mandela's accomplishments were in a country where he couldn't use tradition and a Constitution to shame people into doing the right thing. He didn't mention the long interview Shepard Smith did with the Fox News Producer in South Africa who had once worked for Mandela. he didn't mention that Juan Williams was interviewed not just about his death, but his personal experiences where he talked about how amazed..." - Michael K Pate

Re: Doctor Who: the 10 greatest Time Lords - http://www.telegraph.co.uk/culture...
"I thought Colin Baker brought a sense of arrogant forthrightness back to the Doctor - something that the 4th and 5th had lost and you could definitely see it when he worked with the 2nd. I would definitely rate him above McGann and Smith. The fact is, each actor brought something unique to the role and to cut it down to ten is rather odd." - Michael K Pate

"1) "Some of the groups who applied in 2010 have still never been given final disposition." Albuquerque Tea Party, Allen Area Patriots, Greater Phoenix Tea Party Patriots, Greenwich Tea Party Patriots, Laurens County Tea Party, Linchpins of Liberty, Myrtle Beach Tea Party, North East Tarrant Tea Party, Patriots Educating Concerned Americans Now (PECAN), and Unite in Action. http://aclj.org/free-speech-2/... 2) To receive a letter of recognition from the IRS, a 501(c)(4) organization must file a Form 1024(“Application for Recognition of Exemption Under Section 501(a)”). Typically, an organization will receive either a determination letter or request for additional information from the IRS within 90 days of submission of Form 1024. For more information on the process, read our fact sheet, Starting a 501(c)(4) Organization. http://afjactioncampaign.org/n... Any other questions?" - Michael K Pate

Re: Republican IRS agent says he instigated ‘Tea Party’ inquiries - http://www.rawstory.com/rs...
"His statements are interesting but it still doesn't explain very much. The application process is supposed to take 90 days. Any longer than that and a report has to be generated monthly explaining why the application has not been approved or rejected. Some of the groups who applied in 2010 have still never been given final disposition. If one manager is capable of doing this without his immediate supervisor or the upper management in Washington growing suspicious, the IRS has an incredibly broken system of supervision." - Michael K Pate

"I agree with you that both budget plan's that Romney and Ryan have offered are short on specific cuts. But they do at least start to offer a solution. Obama sends over a budget every year, the Senate votes it down unanimously, and then Harry Reid does nothing. I agree with you that there is real suffering - some of my best friends are in the same situation - and Obama did nothing to help them. Allocating money for non-shovel ready projects has not and instituting a healthcare scheme that has every business owner figuring out how many people to layoff rather than how many people to hire has only made things worse. I never said Morello was an Obama supporter. But right now he reminds me of the Wilson Sisters when Sarah Palin was using Barracuda and they were appalled that a Heart song could be so misused. He chose to express his opinion here in Rolling Stone, and you and I are commenting on it. We don't agree but that's fine - we don't live in a police state. Although Tom has been..." - Michael K Pate

"The people who would not benefit from their election are those  in power now, obviously - Barack Obama and George Soros. Probably the most disempowered group that would benefit haven't been born yet - yet they are $16 Trillion in debt now and will be $20 or more if Obama is re-elected. But the most immediate effect would be for this 11 percent of the population -  http://www.aei-ideas.org/2012... those unemployed and those who have stopped looking." - Michael K Pate

"Just to express my solidarity with Paul Ryan, I have liked the music of RATM for years and look forward to voting for Romney/Ryan this year. Has it comes to pass that raging against the machine only means whining about Republicans and giving the people in power a free pass? That is just sad." - Michael K Pate
