Strea... streamlining? You're right, there's less words! Maybe we should do that with some legislation too!
The New York Times reports that House republican leaders abruptly cancelled a planned vote to renew the Voting Rights Act on wednesday after a rebellion by lawmakers who said the civil rights measure unfairly singled out Southern states. Signed in 1965, the Voting Rights Act instituted a nation-wide prohibition against voting discrimination based on race, eliminated poll taxes and literacy tests, and put added safeguards in regions where discrimination had been especially pronounced. Republican Lynn Westmoreland (not a girl, just named like one) is working on an amendment that would allow the affected states to more easily change their voting rules.
Hey instead of repealing laws that were designed to end discrimination, why don't we make them apply to all states?
- Nah, racism is a thing of the past, just ask Tony Snow.
During a 2003 interview Tony Snow said quote "here's the unmentionable secret, racism isn't that big a deal anymore, no sensible person supports it, nobody of importance preaches it, it's rapidly becoming an ugly memory.
Lynn Westmoreland (a boy not a girl) said quote "a lot of it looks as if these are some old boys from the South who are trying to do away with it, but these old boys are trying to make it constitutional enough that it will withstand the scrutiny of the Supreme Court". That's funny talk. I've always called old boys men. (grimace)
