So you are cool with a program that will cost taxpayers tens of millions of dollars on a problem that doesn't really exist?

 

Never, talk about wasteful spending again if you support this.  kthx

Yep.  Of taxpayer money.  On something that doesn't exist.

 

I'll ask you again, are you now okay with spending taxpayer money on things that are not real issues?

 

As a conservative I know that you aren't which is why you surely don't support this.

So yes you agree with the spending on something that isn't really an issue?  That is cool, just never talk about frivolous spending again. 

 

It is pretty simple.  If you support this, don't ever talk about frivolous spending issues again, if you don't support it I admire you for sticking to your beliefs as a conservative.

How easy do you repubs think it is to get an ID in Hyde County and Washington County where they don't have DMV offices?  Especially for the poor and elderly?

You didn't answer my question. 

 

I don't see how guaranteeing one person=one legal vote is something that should be described as frivolous.  There are some cost savings here as well.  Reducing the early voting by a week.  More controls on registrations so that less personnel are needed.  Eliminating same-day voter registration.  Removing pre-registration persons from going to high schools. 

 

So I don't simply accept the premise of your argument.  Sorry.

No social services rep assigned?  Think.

The spending is in the budget they just passed so you better hurry up and tell them it isn't actually going to cost that much.

    • I had always assumed she was dardaroarroar
    • elton simpson was monitored over a 9 year period (fbi claims there were breaks but at the least there were still years of monitoring) and at least $132,000 in cash was spent on one informant alone. here's the fbi's version in the immediate aftermath of the shooting:   Three hours before gunmen attacked an anti-Prophet Muhammad event in Garland, Texas on Sunday, the FBI sent a bulletin to local police with a photo of one of the shooters, Elton Simpson, noting that he was "interested in the event," FBI director James Comey said. At the time, the FBI had no reason to believe that Simpson intended to attack the event, Comey told reporters Thursday. Nor did the agency know that Simpson was already on his way there. Comey also said that he does not believe that the police officer who shot Simpson and the second gunman, Soofi Nadir, was aware of the bulletin. He went on to say that while the investigation of the Phoenix gunmen is far from complete, Comey believes the FBI acted appropriately. ..... Two weeks before the Garland event, which invited artists to draw illustrations of Muhammad, the FBI and Homeland Security warned law enforcement agencies across the country that it was at risk of being targeted by Islamic extremists. The advisory noted that supporters of ISIS and other terror groups had posted links to the contest on Twitter. Simpson was reading those posts, and communicated with an American in Somalia who'd called for attacking the event, investigators have said. The FBI then developed information that Simpson might be interested in traveling to Garland, Comey said. The Sunday bulletin followed. ..... The FBI now has hundreds of investigations of potential home grown extremists under way, with cases open in every state. "I know there are other Elton Simpsons out there," Comey said. Finding them, however, is a "very hard task," he said. Investigators can follow messages that are posted on public twitter accounts. But ISIS recruiters are steering people off Twitter into encrypted forums, which the government cannot see, Comey said. "Its the old going-dark problem, in living color," said Comey. He added: "We have hundreds working on it around the clock. But in almost every case of violence, someone saw something. A friend, a family member. Its more important than ever for people to speak up."     ^^^just a reminder for the bolded parts that a federal agent was in the car directly behind them as they opened their doors and began their short lived attack
    • Looks like it has potential. BvS was terrible. I will say the extended version was a better film but still not good. Suicide Squad was one of the worst films I've seen in a while.  That said of course I will waste my money and go see this. I hope they bring back Batman's more cunning qualities in future films. I got the sense that in BvS he was a what you see is what you get type of guy. You don't get the feeling that he has something up his sleeve at all times. Which was something Nolan/Bale had, almost Bond-esque.
