  • Federal judge okays voter fraud...

    US Federal judge James Peterson, overturned large portions of Wisconsin's voter ID laws. This includes his ruling:

    U.S. District Judge James Peterson ordered the state to quickly issue credentials valid for voting to anyone trying to obtain a free photo ID but lacking underlying documents such as birth certificates.

    He struck down restrictions on absentee and early voting, saying they discriminated against blacks. He also struck down an increase in residency requirements from 10 to 28 days, a prohibition on using expired but otherwise qualifying student IDs to vote and a prohibition on distributing absentee ballots by fax or email.
    (emphasis mine)

    Peterson was appointed by Obama. His background in law nearly rivals Obama's in its marginality...

    Peterson is a member of Godfrey & Kahn’s litigation and intellectual property practice groups. After law school, he clerked for Judge David Deininger of the Wisconsin Court of Appeals. Before obtaining his J.D. degree, he was a faculty member at University of Notre Dame, where he taught film and television history.

    In addition to his J.D. degree, Peterson holds B.S. and M.A. degrees from U.W.-Madison. He also earned a Ph.D. degree in communications from U.W. in 1986.

    Really? A liberal arts major in communications? That makes a poly sci major look like a paragon of intellect... Communications is one of those degrees the athletes who are just there to play some sport get...

    Taught "film and television history..."

    So, this guy rules that you don't need to prove citizenship to get a voter registration in Wisconsin... Thanks Obama, you friggin' moron!

    Nice to know we have judges who are in the tank for voter fraud!

      Or, far more likely, this judge refused to consider the evidence, nor did he offer and actual proof of his own self-declarations of voter discrimination.

        A lack of evidence / documented cases of fraud is not justification for throwing out all requirements for proof of citizenship to register to vote, or identification at the polls.

        It's akin to saying that there are few or no cases of persons defrauding banks by passing bad checks. Therefore no identification is required to cash a check...

        This is an argument from ignorance.

        Arguments from ignorance infer that a proposition is true from the fact that it is not known to be false. Not all arguments of this form are fallacious; if it is known that if the proposition were not true then it would have been disproven, then a valid argument from ignorance may be constructed. In other cases, though, arguments from ignorance are fallacious.

        Example

        (1) No one has been able to disprove the existence of God.
        Therefore:
        (2) God exists.

        This argument is fallacious because the non-existence of God is perfectly consistent with no one having been able to prove God’s non-existence.
        http://www.logicalfallacies.info/pre...rom-ignorance/

        The judge ignored the argument presented: That reasonable levels of proof should be presented by someone to prove their eligibility to register to vote and then to cast their vote to ensure fraud doesn't happen.

        The judge's argument was: Since you can't prove fraud has happened in the past, there has been no fraud so proof to register to vote and voter ID is unnecessary...

          Good to know that in this country people like Johnny Manziel or Pacman Jones are qualified to be a judge. I guess as long as you obey when a politician snaps his fingers you can be a judge.

            That's his undergraduate degree. He also got his J.D. (he's a lawyer).

              So, after getting some "fluff" undergraduate degrees he got a liberal arts degree in law... BFD.

                I worked with a guy at my first teaching job that was a Coach and taught English and Typing. I had his brother in several of my classes at McNeese State. I remember him telling me he was thinking about going back to school for a law degree. He did and he now practices in Lake Charles.

                In Louisiana the only law schools are LSU, Tulane and Southern. Most people that can't get into LSU Law go to Southern. Everyone I know went to Southern. All that is required to enroll is a four year degree. If you have to ask how much Tulane charges, you can't afford it!

                Huey P Long is the Louisiana Politician that built LSU into what it is today. He went to Tulane and asked if he could just take the Bar exam and they told him NO! He got them back and extra! Long was the guy that built Tiger Stadium there. He could not get enough votes for just a stadium, so he added on Dorm rooms! I remember my only visit to the stadium when the Tigers were playing Mississippi State (the only reason we could get tickets!). I saw a student walk in a door and asked my Dad where he was going? Dad said he was going inside his dorm room! Strange, but there you go. Getting out the parking lot and back on the Highway West took over two hours! They have added seats since then!

                  Mainly because of the "loopholes' I surmise.

                  So much for closing the loopholes.

                  ... and the "laws" target the black community.... what bunk.

                  Just another boost for Hillary the Horrible.

                  I believe this is the first case of where the contenders match the general education level in the US.

                  P.S. The "judges" in the NC case were all Dems.... not too hard to figure out the preordained conclusion on that one. (Don't EVER tell me that the "judges" in this Country are "neutral".)

                    I was talking to people I know just over the border, in Siskiyou County last month.
                    Sheriff's deputies had been called to investigate about 800 Voter registration claims that seemed shady, but they needed an armed escort of the Clipboard Warriors that were looking into it.
                    What Deputies were really wanting to talk about was all the Hmong fellows with AKs up there, managing illegal Pot Plantations, but I wanted to hear more about the voter fraud. Turns out there were able to visit 49 "addresses", and only found 13 places that were habitable in any way at all.
                    Well well, whatdya know?
                    They were supposed to try again the next day, but apparently someone from Sacramento made a phone call and shut them down.

                    Is anyone else out there aware of other actions like this one?

                      If the Hmong were involved, who is to say Opium is not being grown as well?

                        Well, I'd say it has to be obvious that we are talking about the descendants of the immigrants from S. Vietnam here. Its not like they brought seeds with them or anything.

                        And while the area may be ideal for growing a weed like Pot, that does not mean it would be so great for Poppies.

                          Actually, weren't the Hmong from Laos? The CIA recruited them to combat Communist troops there.

                            If you don't have proper identification what the **** are you voting for?

                              Why is obtaining a identification card discrimination if everyone is required to obtain one?
                              Everyone has to obtain a Medicare Card when they turn 65, that discriminates against everyone younger than 65, yet the government mandates it.
                              Politics is the art of looking for trouble, finding it everywhere, diagnosing it incorrectly and applying the wrong remedies.
