When you can't even give them away...

If you recall during the years, yes years (plural) long debate about photo ID in Wisconsin, the always whiny, crying, moaning, groaning 20% (80%, including many Democrats favored photo ID) complained loudly that too many folks couldn’t get to a place that had the IDs and even if they could, they couldn’t afford it.



Never mind that in today’s day and age you can’t live or survive without photo ID that is required for:

Obtaining food stamps

Buying alcohol

Adopting a pet

Purchase a gun

Writing  a check at the grocery store

Making a credit card purchase at Best Buy

Applying for a loan to purchase anything

Starting a new bank account

Getting married

Getting a marriage license


Closing on a house

Getting medical care

Picking up a mailbox key from the US Post Office

Getting on a plane

Getting insurance

Renting an apartment

Renting a video

Applying for a job

Getting a hotel room

Renting a car

Offering free IDs was the final blow in the arguments of foolish photo ID opponents. Surely, now all these civic-minded folks who were being disenfranchised of their right to vote would rush to get their free IDs so they could continue to vote for liberal Democrats.
