Arkansas News: A Pulaski County, Ark., judge on Thursday struck down a law requiring voters to show photo identification at voting polls, saying it was unconstitutional.
Judge Tim Fox said the law added qualifications beyond those stated in the Arkansas Constitution. The state attorney general’s office said it would appeal the decision.
The law was vetoed by Democratic Gov. Mike Beebe last year, but the Republican-controlled legislature overrode the veto.
"The decision was written by Anthony Kennedy, who lives in that wonderful world where the law is a pure crystal stream running through green meadows, unsullied by the grit and silt that piles up in the actual lives of actual human beings…. What we are seeing, over and over again, is what happens when you combine the inebriate effect of American Exceptionalism in the philosophy of the law. Race does not exist as an issue in our country anymore because we have overcome it, because we are America and , therefore, Exceptional.” - Charles Pierce
Shorter white Justices: Correcting the effects of racism prolongs racism by giving racists more reasons to be racist.
It is time we put TV cameras in the Supreme Court. These assholes can no longer hide. We need to see and hear the people who are changing America for the worse.
