I still hear insistence that voter fraud isn't a problem,

so the only reason for voter ID laws is racism, etc.  Right.
To keep that silly narrative alive, it’s important not to read the Sunday edition of the Columbus Dispatch, in which readers were informed that “more than one out of every five registered Ohio voters is probably ineligible to vote.”

Furthermore, “in two counties, the number of registered voters actually exceeds the voting age population: Northwestern Ohio’s Wood County shows 109 registered voters for every 100 eligible, while in Lawrence County along the Ohio River it’s a mere 104 registered per 100 eligible.”

More on the piece-of-crap immigration bill Rubio wishes to trash his standing for.
The final length of the bill remained a mystery during its drafting process. Some estimates from media outlets, including from the Washington Post's David Nakamura, placed the bill length at the time at longer than 1,500 pages. Breitbart News also reported that estimate, as did many other media outlets. 

When the bill came out at introduction just under a thousand pages, Gang of Eight members tried to attack the reputations of the media outlets that reported those initial numbers. Marco Rubio attacked those who reported on the estimates of the bill’s length in a press release. 
The new bill towers over previous versions in length, clocking in at 1,076 pages. It was introduced on Tuesday afternoon.
A: Rubio expects us to buy this garbage just because he insists it's a good deal?
B: Just how much shit is hidden in that more-than-thousand pages of gobbledygook?
C: Next time someone announces a 'Gang of (X)' for anything, both the announcer and every member should be dragged into the town square and flogged.

I'll bet some people at IRS just about crapped their pants when this order came in.  And the investigators better be looking for evidence of screwing with files before it came down.

On personal stuff, in this case the 'life calling' over the previous few days involved not work, but a chance to travel a bit.  I'll have that story later.  Right now there's shopping to do and other everyday stuff to take care of.
