Just for the sake of argument. If I, as a woman, were to walk around with my pants falling below my rear end and my panties in full view still be considered within the perimeters of decent or would I be stopped for indecent exposure? Men are allowed in public without a shirt, are woman afforded this same allowance? I may be wrong, but last I knew this would be considered indecent exposure.
Why not? It is this type of sexist thinking that perpetuates the harassment mentioned in this article. And in our society. I suppose woman who dare work outside the home should also tolerate sexual harassment, since its no place for a woman.
Are the dead and those with multiple personalities voting in person? Or by absentee ballot? If later is the case wouldn't this new requirement be mute? Also if the law requires a special ID if I were able to generate the documentation to get a drivers licence or ID wouldn't i also have the ability to get one of these cards?
"Yet Republicans contend a photo ID requirement only makes sense, noting that some hotels, package shippers and other businesses already ask to see photo IDs from customers." This comment amuses me. Is this to say that since Hotels, the UPS man and bars require ID then it should be required to vote. LOL Voting isn't a business it is our right, and not one to be taken lightly. For many of us this is a right that was won by brave and diligent souls before us....Yes many of us already have a gov issued ID, but what if it the addresses don't match? or You've had a name change and haven't received your new voter card yet? This does cause a hardship for many. For many people getting an ID isn't as simple as jumping in your vehicle and going a few miles and paying to get a new or updated ID, especially those in rural areas, elderly, disabled those on fixed income that may not readily have the money it costs for transportation and the cost of the card. I think it is naive and short sighted to believe that it is. And is voter fraud rampant in MO?
