What is happening?

August 20, 2013

You don’t need identification to vote but you DO need it to buy fingernail polish remover at CVS. It makes you wonder what is happening to this country! Anne E....

I say we boycott CVS until we no longer need an ID to buy finger nail polish remover.

Since when did they start putting acetone (back) into nail-polish remover?

Different circumstances; each needs to be evaluated on its own merits.

Hey, go ahead and let anybody vote and maybe we will have the Muslim Brotherhood as our leaders, do you want that? I think everybody should have an ID to vote, it should not be a problem if you are a legal voter, stop whining.

This subject has been beaten to death 100 times on this forum. And even after all that, the Liberals' argument against voter ID is feeble and uses straw man tactics.

For the last (I hope) time - there is no reason for someone in PA to be without a legal photo ID. God help them if they want nail polish remover or cough syrup!

Why not put the ID requirement to vote up for vote? Let the people decide. What would be the results and by what percentage?

The answer to this is simple. They want you to be of legal age to purchase the remover for huffing before you go out and vote.

I hope this clears things up.

Considering ID is needed for so many other functions in life I don't understand the hoopla over voter ID.

Premier, remember in the "old" days when they wouldn't sell a kid airplane glue with the model kits. You had to have a parent with you.Do kids still build those model cars, ships etc?

Tgram, I would have to say no. If it can't be done by texting or via the internet I believe there is no interest in it. Sad.

MrShaman, you can buy both varieties, one with acetone and one without. I tried the one without, and found it didn't work as good as the one with acetone, so I ended up tossing it and replacing it with the real stuff.

I have 2 full bottles on hand, and a 3rd open. Will have to buy some to stock up in case they put a limit on how many you can buy in a certain time period like Sudafed.

it is so irritating to me to hear the BS claims about an ID being an obstruction to voting. I don't buy it and I do believe thoseclaiming so are the worse kind of opportunists. You need an ID to get a library book! No outrage there.

Can you provide an instance of in person voter fraud? Why is a photo ID not needed for absent-t voting?(IMO, this is where there is a greater chance of fraud) Every time I have ever voted, my name was the rolls, & I needed to sign. I will also state the obvious, voting is a Right. Not "technically" a Right as this paper once stated, but a Right. I was not aware that buying finger nail polish was covered under the Constitution.

Just FYI...CVS stepped back from this decision shortly after it was announced due to public outcry. Now if we could only get our elected officials to do the same...

Ah, yes...that voter-ID is a "cure"...looking for a problem.

How inconvenient, for "conservatives".

I'd assumed they'd eliminated acetone, from all...primarily because it made nails brittle.

Yeah...they've done the same with paint-strippers. Some states no-longer allow the 100-proof stuff; Zip-Strip.

Just another part of our double-standard government control. The Dems cry continuously about not wanting voter ID because obviously, it would decrease their chances to cheat and win an election which has happened pretty regularly in the past. If the tables were reversed, our dictator would have already passed the bill using his executive order.

We are once again restricted because of societies Lowest common denominator. No different than being carded when buying other substances(at certain retailers) i.e. white-out, paint stripper, spray paint, certain cold medication, Air duster, etc.

Actually Darin, democrats take the position that the Voter ID Law would disenfranchise many of the poor and elderly that are unable to obtain ID and they state the conservative argument for it has no basis. Personally I think every American citizen should be required to have an ID and if I'm not mistaken the REAL ID Act of 2005 that was passed but never implemented was going to require just that. The problem lies in how we can assist everyone in obtaining the ID and the cost associated with it. It seems to me that ignoring the people that don't have an ID when it's needed in so many facets of our lives, is leaving them just as disenfranchised.

Capricorn1- the people did decide in Nevada and Texas and Holder and Obama filed lawsuits.What to do now? I say secure the borders first and then talk about it. We need a real bonafide leader for our country.

The right wing still tries to keep people from voting and thinks it is okay to do.
