Tyler, TX — The federal judges have been busy this week.
First, shooting down the Texas voting map. Now, that is heading to the highest court in the land.
And today this -- Texas Voter ID Law Sets 'Strict Burdens,' -- the Court Says.
Reports say, a federal court has ruled against a Texas law that would require voters to present photo IDs to election officials before being allowed to cast ballots in November.
A three-judge panel in Washington ruled Thursday that the law imposes "strict, unforgiving burdens on the poor" and noted that racial minorities in Texas are more likely to live in poverty.
The ruling comes in the same week that South Carolina's strict photo ID law is on trial in front of another three-judge panel in the same federal courthouse. A court ruling in the South Carolina case is expected in time for the November election.
It's so strange that I have to show and ID to -- here we go --
Apply for welfare,
Apply for food stamps,
Cash a check,
Purchase a firearm ,
Make any large credit card purchase,
Open a bank account ,
Rent an apartment ,
Be admitted to a hospital ,
Get a marriage license.
But, to vote...naw......
That's my point of view, what's yours?
