(2) The Ruling Class War Against Voter ID - Redstate - It’s funny how majority support is supposed to be decisive for some issues, but completely irrelevant for others. Voter ID laws are enormously popular with the general public, routinely scoring 70 to 80 percent approval. That stacks up pretty well against the most popular gun-control measures you could name. But the political class and its media allies will never portray voter ID as an urgent national crusade. No matter how strong support for it grows, voter ID laws are always treated as sinister schemes, advocated by fringe extremists.
There is nothing mysterious about the popularity of voter ID laws. The vast majority of the American public is entirely comfortable with the notion of displaying valid identification for all sorts of everyday tasks. Last week, Twitchy assembled a memorable Twitter rant listing all of the activities requiring photo ID – from writing a check, boarding an airplane, or renting a car, to buying alcohol or cigarettes. Are we supposed to believe that all the people who supposedly can’t procure a voter ID card abstain from consuming tobacco and alcohol?
Also, American voters strongly disapprove of ballot fraud. Even the people who rarely bother to vote understand that elections should not be stolen or tampered with. Read more.......
(3) Ken Cuccinelli at UVA - Highlights His Effort to Raise Awareness About Sexual Assault as a Student at UVA. As Ken Cuccinelli continues his Putting Virginians First Tour, the campaign is releasing today a new video. Text of Video: “Ken Cuccinelli was at his desk past midnight, laboring over calculus homework, when he heard a long, loud scream” – Washington Post, 8/1/10
Teiro: When Ken heard her screams, he ran to try and help her, not knowing what was wrong. She had been in bed, and someone had climbed in the window in the middle of the night and started to try to assault her. “It came from an adjacent basement bedroom in the group house he rented with some friends… in Charlottesville, where he was a student at the University of Virginia.” – Washington Post, 8/1/10
Ken: I’ve never heard a scream like that. To this day I’ve never heard a scream like that. It woke me up to the problem of sexual assault. And so I started trying to figure out, well what can I do to reduce this? And the number is pretty staggering. There was no university-centric attempt to reduce the incidence of sexual assault or to help the victims of it. Read more.........
(4) Oregon to "Rehabilitate" Businesses Opposed to Gay Marriage - Redstate - The state Bureau of Labor and Industries will investigate whether Sweet Cakes by Melissa violated a 2007 state law that protects the rights of gays, lesbians, bisexual and transgender people in employment, housing and public accommodations, The Oregonian reported Wednesday.
In her complaint, Rachel N. Cryer, 30, said she went to the Gresham bakery on Jan. 17 for an appointment to order the cake. She met with owner Aaron Klein, who asked for the date and names of the bride and groom.
“I told him, ‘There are two brides and our names are Rachel and Laurel,’” the complaint says.
Klein responded that he and his wife didn’t serve same-sex weddings and “cited a religious belief for its refusal to make cakes for same-sex couples planning to marry,” the complaint says.
For the crime of refusing to participate in a shabby simulacrum of marriage a family business is now being investigated by the State of Oregon and, unless they toss away their religious beliefs, will be fined perhaps to the point of bankruptcy. According to the article there are no caps on the fines allowed under the law. Read more.......
