"infringes on someones rights" LOL i think her friend has confused the the concepts of "privilege" and "rights". like oh so many liberals do.

Yes and while there is a “right” for all citizens (who haven’t committed a felony and are of age) to vote, it’s a right for citizens. If you can’t prove that you are of age, that you are who you say you are, and that you are a citizen (which need identification) then you can’t vote. 

Simple as that.

If someone can come up with another option I’d love to hear it, but until then…voter ID.

What are some good smart right-leaning tumblrs to follow, in your opinion? (Sorry, I have to admit that the conservative tumblr list is a trainwreck)

Ummm…

Hmm, I hate doing this because I always forgot some of the best ones. If I don’t list you it’s not because I don’t think you are smart or cool or whatevs…it’s just late and I just took a sleeping pill.

my friend thinks requiring an id to vote infringes on someone's rights, and prohibits some from voting. But aside from needing id to register, how can you live a normal life and do, well, anything without any form of identification?

You can’t. 

Not legally anyway.

I'd love to follow more conservative tumblrs, but unlike you, they tend to be conservative for, well, the wrong reasons. :/ Haha, I'm right-of-center in the bluest state out there so this makes it even harder to find friends :p

There are a lot of more logical conservative blogs on here than you’d think though. Mostly I follow a bunch of conservative blogs and then wait to see what kind of argument/content they are putting out to see if I need to stop or continue following.

Here It Comes…This Should Bring Back Chilling Memories For Every Jew

K….so if this report is accurate…and I read the leaflet and the translation, its accurate….although I wonder A. why this is written in Russian and note Ukranian and B. why the monetary fee they had to bring was written in dollars. 

Essentially they want Jews to register with the government and list all their assets….and there’s more…but um…if this is true….I’m very concerned 

Valid points to bring up. I’d like another source to verify it, but if it is true…that’s horrifying and not good.

The separatists deny the allegations. 

Hmm, so they are really (creepy) but no one is taking responsibility or enforcing them….something to watch though, definitely.

Does anyone remember me calling this months ago when IL started allowing concealed carry? 

I remember.

Pepperidge Farm remembers. 

You mean their crime rate dropped. I am so shocked…..no one ever would have guessed.

How do you feel about people who are conservative by temperament (aka conservative for the sole sake of upholding tradition / dislike or distrust of new things), as opposed to conservative because they've analyzed the other options and find that the system makes the most sense to them?

I’m glad that they vote the way they do, but I have little time or respect for them. They are the sort who will vote based on tradition or emotion, rather than logic…which means that they have their opinion set one way (whether based on incorrect or illogical data) it’s nearly impossible to change it.

For instance, I’ve argued often (and sometimes loudly) with one of my family members about the fact that their is no difference between a company refusing service to someone for being gay and a company that has a policy that prevents women from nursing their child in the store. In both cases this is simply a case of a business having the right to set their own policies…however she thinks the first is fine and the second should be illegal. This isn’t based on law or logic, just emotion. 

This frustrates me because it’s not consistent.

How is your family, politically?

Very conservative (other than my brother) but I have a tendency toward reasoning out my political beliefs, where my parents tend toward being conservative because of tradition and family. Not to say they aren’t very smart, they are, but where I try to be very consistent…sometimes my mom and dad just aren’t.

My sister makes fun of feminists with me, so that’s fun.

Amsterdam fined Holocaust victims for unpaid taxes while they were in camps | The Times of Israel

Many of the houses in question were used by Nazi occupation officers and local collaborates, Het Parool reported. The city went after Holocaust survivors for missed payments as late as 1947 and imposed fines on them for missing payments, according to the daily, whose publication on the issue last year prompted the investigation.

The NIOD researchers estimate the city received a total of $14.5 million from fines unjustly levied against Jews during the relevant period, according to Ronny Naftaniel, a former chief negotiator for the Dutch Jewish community in restitution talks and a member of the supervisory committee of the NIOD research.

The researchers have obtained documents that prove the city took $6.76 from 217 Jews who objected to the fines levied on them, Naftaniel added. The $14.5 estimate includes cases of Jews who paid and did not object.

“What has come to light is a scandalous procedure, in which people were stripped of their homes and then made to pay for those who moved in their place,” Naftaniel said.
