Today I want to discuss the debt ceiling. I promise it won’t be as nerdy as it sounds. However, there is part of it that will make you feel like you took a trip to the butcher shop and are watching the sausage being made. Today’s title is a basic outline of the article. (The first silly may actually be a kind choice of words.)
Mainly at the state level the Republican Party has been engaged in voter suppression for decades. Of late they have moved into voter intimidation. Ironically they learned both from, among other sources, the Democrats of the Jim Crow era. Now they are unveiling their final tactic – voter nullification. The scariest part is that the general public seems to be completely unaware of that.
NOTE: This is a corrected version. The original article was somewhat inaccurate.
Lost in the shuffle of the voter suppression legislation the Republicans are passing at the state level in states they control is the much more dangerous voter nullification legislation. Why are they doing it? I’d like to explain that today.
After watching or listening to a newscast have you ever asked yourself why a certain item wasn’t covered? I have.
When I awoke on Tuesday morning (I’m penning this a bit later in that am) one of the first things I did was check my phone and was greeted by an email saying that several major websites including the New York Times and CNN had been hacked. This is part of a major issue confronting America recently and I want to pontificate on it for a bit today.
