Assembly Speaker Robin Vos wants quick action but the State Elections board wants a go-slow approach. This is in reference to a bill that would make it harder to recall local officials, makes the voter ID law even more restrictive and makes voting by absentee ballot a pain in the ass.
When asked why the hurry when we don’t even know how much this will cost, Vos replied, “…"For me, I think we can’t put a price on democracy. For me, whatever it costs to make sure we have a system that works and allows individuals to vote…we thought it was a worthwhile investment."
Listen — championing democracy and making sure individuals can vote are the furthest things from this pinhead’s alleged popcorn mind. This is all about restricting ballot access to Democrat voters. It’s state statute gerrymandering.
Don’t insult us by saying this is “all about democracy” and making sure “people can vote.”

The views expressed here are mine and do not necessarily reflect those of my employer. George was my favorite.
“Because religious belief, or non-belief, is such an important part of every person’s life, freedom of religion affects every individual.
State churches that use government power to support themselves and force their views on persons of other faiths undermine all our civil rights. Moreover, state support of the church tends to make the clergy unresponsive to the people and leads to corruption within religion. Erecting the “wall of separation between church and state,” therefore, is absolutely essential in a free society. We have solved … the great and interesting question whether freedom of religion is compatible with order in government and obedience to the laws. And we have experienced the quiet as well as the comfort which results from leaving every one to profess freely and openly those principles of religion which are the inductions of his own reason and the serious convictions of his own inquiries.”
