I don't see what the big deal is [regarding the proposed bill to require Tennessee voters to have photo identification]. It’s not like it’s impossible or even hard to get a picture ID. I don't know how long they've been around, but I've had one since I moved here almost 12 years ago. 
I can't believe I'm going to side with Republicans on this. What is the world coming to?

When I moved here from Hell, Michigan (a downgrade), I had to produce a Birth Cert., SS# Card, another state's Driver License, take an eye exam, and a DNA swab sample at the DMV. They almost wanted to draw blood for a BAC. I said I never drink before 9:00am because of my religion.
The "Doctor" on duty had me cough which I thought was rather invasive, but just part of that Southern Hospitality I had heard so much about.
How illegals can get all these documents and then fake ID's is beyond comprehension.
No ID, NO vote.

Paul-

I’ve been to Hell Mich. before the damn broke and the lake disappeared. Did they ever rebuild the damn?

By: yogiman on 2/10/11 at 7:37

dargent7,

Didn't you like it in Hell so you decided to downgrade yourself into 'heaven' (Nashville)?
Don't you feel better now that you have 'lowered' yourself (by that I mean "come South")?

By: dargent7 on 2/10/11 at 7:53

Cpt. N: I relocated to Climax, Mich. I thought that living there even I could get lucky.
If only once and a while. I was wrong.

Now that the Memphis Mafia is no longer in control of the
legislature, I suspect this will go all the way through to the
Governor's signature. A small step for better elections!

By: Funditto on 2/10/11 at 8:12

Michigan is beautiful but the nasallly sounds of its inhabitants ruins if for me. The ugliest accent in America.

By: Captain Nemo on 2/10/11 at 8:26

Now Fun, I don’t if it is the ugliness accent in America; because I have heard some southern accents that make me cringe.

I know you are saying this just to aggravate dargent. lol

By: revo-lou on 2/10/11 at 8:27

right, gov! Cause if there is one thing we know, it is that or elections in this state are RIPE with fraud! Most likely that is how Haslam got in!

By: Captain Nemo on 2/10/11 at 8:43

That should be reason enough not to like this bill weescot. It is Republican and Tea Party is origin.

By: Captain Nemo on 2/10/11 at 8:49

I don’t think gov thought about that revo. Then maybe there is something to the gov’s outburst.

By: gdiafante on 2/10/11 at 9:18

I don't think this will change elections, unless requiring ID's somehow upgrades our choice of candidates. If there is fraud, which usally are just sore losers with a case of Whiningitis, they'll find other ways.

On a side note: Isn't this weather grand? I love winter. Note to Nashville drivers: if you have to go up a hill in ice/snow, get some speed and don't stop halfway up the hill. And if you do stop, don't look so damned surprised when you get stuck.

Oh, and get the hell out of my way.

By: Captain Nemo on 2/10/11 at 9:24

My snow travel tip is to wait for them to get to work or crash, before I leave.

By: gdiafante on 2/10/11 at 9:30

It really is amazing how an inch of snow can paralyze an entire city. Here's my breakdown of the cause:

40% snow/ice
35% driver ignorance
25% panic

By: Funditto on 2/10/11 at 9:39

Well now that you think about Nemo, you're right. I like D7 but his northern superiority complex sometimes needs to be brought down. And come to think of it, I can't stand East Tennessee southern accents, either.

By: Captain Nemo on 2/10/11 at 9:43

It is over in Egypt. The demonstrators have won!!!

By: Captain Nemo on 2/10/11 at 9:48

LOL Fun

Paul does it just to get a reaction.

By: AmyLiorate on 2/10/11 at 9:49

lol GD, so true.

Today's picture of Egypt still looking for change-
http://images.ctv.ca/archives/CTVNews/img2/20110206/800_ap_cairo_tanks_not_moving_110206.jpg

I hope they get something better. So far it looks like the king of Saudi is supporting his friend Mubarak and president Obama is caught between a rock and hard place.

On that note we'll probably borrow another $1,500,000,000,000 just to send to Egypt. Like we did last year. Hey, it's only money.

By: dargent7 on 2/10/11 at 10:13

An inch of snow? I have 2.5" on my car and all the sidestreets are pure ice/ snow.
I thought I woke up in Vail or Aspen. 8 degrees and pure powder.
Anyone watch the news this am?
At 5:00am there were cars in ditches, abandoned overnite, jack-knifed semis.
Tenn. better get used to this weather/ climate change.
Sure. Al Gore is full of sh**, but this is crazy.
Or at least build some ski lifts and downhill runs instead of water parks.

By: yogiman on 2/10/11 at 10:19

Funditto,

To criticize someone for being who they are entitles you to be criticized for your personal stupidity.

Why are you so proud to be who you are? Because of who you are? Your way of speech? What makes you so sure you aren't considered ignorant by those 'dummies' because you don't speak as they do?

By: Captain Nemo on 2/10/11 at 10:20

I saw all of d7. Now I am going to go out in a few to see if I can do it.

By: yogiman on 2/10/11 at 10:37

dargent7,

Don't you understand this winter season is happening because of Little Al's global warming situation?

By: Captain Nemo on 2/10/11 at 11:01

The Tea Bags must be feeling a threat form Obama. They have sent there PR Personality out to bad talk against Obama. Isn’t that right yogi?

By: Captain Nemo on 2/10/11 at 11:09

I am going to try to get out. See you later.

By: bfra on 2/10/11 at 11:21

I was reading comments on "wine sales" one day, there in the midst, was a yogi rant about Obama, like he thought Obama was the reason for not selling wine in grocery stores. Go figure!

By: Funditto on 2/10/11 at 11:40

OMG, Yogi - I am kidding. Never once do I intend my comments to be mean spirited. Lighten up!

By: yogiman on 2/10/11 at 12:00

From comments I have had before from you,Funditto, I didn't read you as you was kidding. If you were, please accept my apology. Being me, I am me. I react to the many negative remarks and comments I receive from the 'brilliant' posters at this site.

I'm sorry I'm not as brilliant as they seem to think they are. I simply can't think like them, but I'm not sorry for that fact.

By: gdiafante on 2/10/11 at 12:32

"I simply can't think."

fixed

By: yogiman on 2/10/11 at 1:28

Should I say the demeaning facts the (meaning you) renowned idiots at 'thinking'?

By: Captain Nemo on 2/10/11 at 1:40

yogi says, “I sorry I am not as brilliant as you think your are.”

Now this phrase has become a cliché that makes no sense. How would some that is not brilliant even know that they are not brilliant? How would they know that the other person is not brilliant?

By: Captain Nemo on 2/10/11 at 1:52

Now with Mubarak stepping down from power and it appears that Obama had made the right decision. yogi mad rants are starting to become even more alarming.

By: yogiman on 2/10/11 at 1:59

gdiafante,

Brilliance is in the eyes of the ignorant ones. How ignorant are you?

By: dargent7 on 2/10/11 at 2:10

Yogi: Take up Transcendental Meditation, Scientology, or become a Mormon.

By: Captain Nemo on 2/10/11 at 2:10

Show proof of that statment yogi.

By: Captain Nemo on 2/10/11 at 2:11

You will only confuse him Paul.

By: Captain Nemo on 2/10/11 at 2:39

This will only confuse him Paul.

By: yogiman on 2/10/11 at 3:00

nimrod;

I made a statement a short time ago that considering your constant negative comments to and about me I would consider the source and not respond to your ignorance anymore. Since you won't back off on your declivity, I'm repealing my word. I'm back in that old ball game. I hope you have a catcher's mitt. No ignorant comment from you will be left unanswered.

By: yogiman on 2/10/11 at 3:05

What statement are you writing about in your 2:10, nimrod? How am I supposed to answer a question you don't know how to ask?

To help on your education, a statement is a statement. A question is a question. Which did you have in mind?

By: Captain Nemo on 2/10/11 at 3:28

There you go with the name calling yogi. You can’t show any proof of any statement you make so you resort to name calling. This is typical Tea Bag mentality.

I ask you to show proof to any of your statement and you in return start the name calling.

Where was this supposed to have taken place?

Show proof.

By: yogiman on 2/10/11 at 3:59

Apparently you can only read what you want, nimrod. Go back on these sites and you will find it. I'm sure one of your 'assistants' on this site can refer you to it.

By: Captain Nemo on 2/10/11 at 4:13

Show proof yogi. You made it.

By: Captain Nemo on 2/10/11 at 4:15

I have not made any negative comments about you here.

By: Captain Nemo on 2/10/11 at 4:19

yogi the reason you want me to look is that you can’t fine it yourself.

By: Captain Nemo on 2/10/11 at 4:20

SHOW PROOF!!

By: yogiman on 2/10/11 at 5:37

nimrod,

You make a statement "I have not made any negative comments about me here". Do you consider these ridiculous comments to, and about, me as complementary?

By: yogiman on 2/10/11 at 5:39

Sorry, you wrote "... about you here."

By: Captain Nemo on 2/10/11 at 6:14

There you go witht he name calling again, yogi.

You are not a man of your word.

By: yogiman on 2/10/11 at 7:55

Yes, nimrod, I am a man of my word. but when you constantly continue to belittle me, I will only take it for so long. What you have on your mind, if you have one, I don't know, but I will only take so much crap before I come back to respond to your ridicule. I consider that my right.

Do you think I should sit quietly by and let you make the facetious comments you continue to make?

I like to learn you way of thinking, if you have one.
