    It's pretty sad we are more worried about a TV performer who made racial remarks decades  ago than a sitting SCOTUS Justice who also has a history of making racial sensititive remarks btw his latest was made not more than 6 months ago ..... so much for the New and Kinder GOP

    Thats just BS.  The only part of VRA effected is Section 4, which singles out some states and counties.  If you buy that thats voting rights for all Americans, I got this bridge.  It doesn't effect voting rights for ANY Americans.

     

    And where was the outrage when the court liberals voted to give big corp to power to blow up your house, nay, entire neighborhood?

    Or when Elena voted in favor of the Prop 8 appeal?

    Wait....did Scalia really mean to say that voting is a racial entitlement????

     

    This man also believes that racial predjudice no longer exists in the real world...the world where the rest of us reside.

    I thought Citizens United was the worst SCOTUS decision I would ever see. Then came the VRA decion.

    We have survived horrible Justices before. So, I guess we will survive Scalia as well as this Court.

    [/QUOTE]

    Well, no, he didn't say that.  Even the posted quote doesn't support that assertion.  But keep twisting the facts to fit your worldview, and everything will look just fine.

    I think that both the DOMA and VRA decisions were good ones in the sense that they both took certain powers away from the federal government and returned it to the states where, under the Constitution, they belong. We can argue the social implications of these decisions but from a constitutuonal perspective the decisions are both consistent and well reasoned.

    It is absolutely good enough. Several people, including myself have pointed out the mistruth, thaqt they voted against voting rights for all Americans.  that simply is not true.

    So, either you are ignorant on such matters, or lying.

    Now apologize.

    Oh, but skeeter, the posted quote does support the paraphrase. And my world view is based on my experience, my schooling, my profession, what comes out of people's mouths, in this case one of our nine Justices among other things.

    This week I asked myself what on earth is SCOTUS thinking. They made it more difficult for millions of people to vote by gutting the 1965 Voting Rights Act. But they also overturned the 1996 Defense of Marriage Act.

    So, the high court is NOT about individual liberties, or it would not tell states to go ahead and pass more restrictive voting laws. If the big issue were liberty, the justices would have told ALL the state to permit same-sex marriage.

    This divided court seems far more interested in preserving states's rights than individual rights. Our most precious right as citizens is voting. 

    The paramount issue for this court was to make sure that if a state wants to forbid same-day voting registration or change the hours or location of polling booths or force voters to jump through complicated hoops to vote...the state is now permitted to do so, skeeter.

    Scalia isn't even quoted properly.  Someone reading this quote would think the whole statement is his qoute, but it is not.  Words were added to the front end.  This is fundamentally dishonest.  I am actually surprised that you don't agree.

    As far as the data:  Where's this data from, and what does it have to do with anything?  Can you aggregate just two minorities and get a fair result? 

    My suspicion is that the data reflects the failure of Democrats to be effective government managers.  Look at it this way:  Most black and hispanic voting is urban.  most urban areas are run by democrats.  Democrats don't staff the polling locations properly, as witnessed by the constant kerfuffles over keeping the polling places open past the official closing times due to long lines.

    Suburban and rural areas tend to be more conservative, and better run.  Hence, the polling places are orgaized and properly staffed.

    There, problem solved.  You wait time disparity:  it's the Democrats fault.
