Tonight on MSNBC's Kudlow show there was a segment covering the Texas NAACP's petitioning the U.N in Geneva to intervene in the Texas
voter I.D law calling it a civil rights violation and within the scope of U.N enforcement. Well, think about that one for a while, after all, what do theyplan to do, send U.N. troops from Denmark to Dallas or Houston? Could be a hot summer, Just say'n

    The Dept of inJustice has already rejected our voter ID law

    The ACLU has already come out in praise of the move stating that "Hispanic voters are more likely to lack the necessary documentation to vote". (Just imagine if a white person said that "Hispanics don't carry ID"...)

    On the upside, the DOiJ is now on record saying that it is discriminatory to ask for ID when exercising a right. So make sure to tell that to your LGS next time you want to buy a gun

    The logic there is both astounding and frighteningly simple.
    Knowledge is essential to living freely and fully; understanding gives knowledge purpose and strength; wisdom is combining the two and applying them appropriately in words and actions.

    Yeah, and you won't be buying a gun!!! Amazing how in their process of logic they deny the law of none contradiction which is one of the most obvious laws of logic, but one of the most frequently denied (as in the case above mention by bullsi1911). The Law of non contradiction states that for any two propositions, if they contradict each other, they cannot both be true. We are living in a culture today that has truly lost it's way.

    Unfortunately, Texas is under the federal thumb due to past voter shenanigans (even if it wasn't Irish) and the DOJ has already ruled the new Tx law invalid.

    We here in Texas are awake and primed. What we have to do is wake up voters in the big swing states, too.

    Yes I agree, the UN has no place medling in our internal affairs. Thats why we have a Constitution. However there was something on the net that said some congressman was calling Leon Panetta's hand because he said that when we were involved in a coalition we need to get either nato or UN's permission before we do something big. The congressman was all up in the air over this. But Panetta admitted when push comes to shove the final authority is the President and Congress in matters of national security. I agree with this at least in part. I'm trying to be sensible, but when we get invovled in a coalition we need to try to work with them unless we see something flagrantly wrong. Then it's always Our option to out and take care of matters. I think we need to be fair. However, I still stand by the fact that anytime any other entity tries to overule our constitution we need to regroup and take charge as may be the case.

    No one, no nation, no coalition, and certainly not the UN trumps the Constitution PERIOD!!!!!!

    All of this is just the Obama administration posturing to his base. It's all for show. There's no way our government or that of any state, especially Texas, will ever answer to the UN or NATO.
    The UN outlived the need for its existence about 50 years ago and it's absurd that we are a member.
    The good side of this news story is maybe it will wake up some moderates and show them how far left Obama and his people want to take the country.

    The Department of inJustice also struck down the voter I.D. law in North Carolina, too. They're meddling everywhere they can. I just want to know when will the dirtbags in D.C. will acknowledge that the mere fact of having a right encumbers said person with the responsibilities of properly executing and protecting that right. With all the places that require showing a photo I.D. to enter, including the DOJ building, makes you wonder how people can get anything done without one.

    As to the redrawing of district lines (gerrymandering) both parties do that depending on who is in power at the time, and both cry foul when the other does it. Nothing new there; nothing to see; move along, move along.

    I think the government, as a whole, is suffering from a massive attack of cognitive dissonance, and has been for some time.
