yay! go murphy!!!! he can always begin with women's rights and why a republican " conservative would own a wrestling company whose " skits" promote violence against women to 7 year old boys; the target audience of the WWE. [ case in point: the Triple H marriage to Lita]

which leaves us to wonder; What is the "connection" between the Koch Bros. fortune and Romney/RYAN 2012? a certain GOP Senator in PA actually admitted [ in a move-on.org video I watched] that the idea of requiring photo ID to vote is a Republican scheme to disenfranchise black and other minority voters who would vote for Obama." [www.moveon.org its all there to see !] UNCONSTITUTIONAL TO THE MAX!!! truthfully this worries me because, being that I'm receiving pubic assistance here in New Mexico, I am registered to vote. Yet I never switched over my Connecticut license and registration..yet. Our own idiot Gov. Senora' Susana Martinez-Repugnant right wing,her sec. of state's trying to do this here. This because they know working class Mexican-americans will vote Obama and not Romney/Ryan!

Cheryl you really listen to this guy with the marker drawing pictures so it's easy to understand I guess. He talks about debt, are you not aware of the debt that Obama has brought to us? Should I draw you a picture? If you want to cash a check you have to show a photo ID isn't a vote as important as cashing a check? or do you think it's fine for illegal aliens and the dead to cast votes. Orange juice, not Kool Aid, it's the right thing to do.

Cheryl - if you return to CT you have to show id to vote. So what is the problem?
