"Jim Crow Laws" were written by DEMOCRATS, enforced by DEMOCRATS and supported by... DEMOCRATS.
Just fyi...
And I don`t mean 100 years ago, I mean the 50`s and 60`s.

kitteh: ALEC hasn`t committed any vote fraud. ACORN and it`s employees have committed voter fraud and have been found guilty of it.

Asking for ID to vote is not vote fraud, in fact it helps prevent vote fraud. You can`t even cash a check in America without showing an ID, I don`t hear anyone screaming discrimination or disenfranchisement because of that.

@Squirrelz: I agree, @kitteh9 is an excellent mod! I`m just really PO`d about this particular video.

TYT is hardly a good source, what they say is rarely accurate on any matter. Every group wants to have laws that make their lives easier, left or right. That government has gotten so huge it cannot be contacted without PACs is the real problem.
The article you link @kitteh9, is informative! This `ALEC` isn`t a one-issue thing, they cover lots of... stuff! Of course companies need to be pro-active because once a bad law is passed, it`s really hard to un-do the damage, eh?

I watched the video again and it`s just as bad aas I remember. Bleh!

I read the comments first, then watched the video. I was expecting a video primarily about guns and the Zimmerman/Martin incident. Instead, it was all about how corporations are pulling the strings of our politicians. Where`s the controversy in that? I agree with Lillian`s post completely on that matter (which will surprise no one, I`m sure, but hey, I calls them as I see them, and she`s a smart cookie).

The Zimmerman/Martin stuff was incidental, 5Cats. Not really worth getting agitated about, IMO.

Kitty, you`re an excellent mod and do an amazing job of finding interesting material for us, so thank you for all that.

WTF is this BS!?
Videos on IAB are supposed to be funny or educational, this is neither.
It has no entertainment value, and no facts, only facts only personal opinions on the law.

Drac: This video is so stupid, I thought it was beneath my comment. But now that I`ve seen that 5cats has passed out from alcohol and frustration, maybe I should add my two cents.

The liberals have tons of `organizations` like the trial lawyers association, the ACLU, Moveon.org, etc... that write the laws they propose. Th democrats never even read Obamacare, Pelosi said, "We have to pass it to know what`s in it". How idiotic was that?! It`s no wonder they now claim to not know that it was unconstitutional.

As for the Mod responsible for deleting submissions he disagrees with, If his posts were deleted I`m sure he`d raise holy hell about it.

Living by the motto, "Do unto others what you believe they`d like to do unto you." Will earn that person a stint in jail or prison eventually.

This video would be funny if it weren`t pretty much completely true. Though apparently corporations are pulling out of ALEC now because consumers are wising up and they don`t want their name further tainted by this atrocious organization. Idk how anyone can say this video is a lie. A Republican in Florida recently submitted a bill written completely by Alec and didn`t even bother reading it over, and as a result she didn`t remove ALEC`s mission statement from the bill.

This clip obviously has been made from one political perspective, but ALEC is pretty widely known as a conservative non-profit group that represents the interests of corporations. I don`t know how anyone can say that this video is a lie. It just presents the information from an opposing view.

But come on. Even the conservatives on this site should be sane enough to admit that the Stand Your Ground law was a disaster waiting to happen. You can`t just give the benefit of the doubt to people who shoot someone with no witnesses.

This is so, effing, retarded.

What chaps my ass about it is the idea that a Democrat owning a Gun seems so odd.

Guess what dumbasses, I am Pro Union, I am Pro Choice, I am Pro Gay Marriage, and I am 100 percent in favor of keeping and bearing firearms.

Because I understand that the only real force for change in the world is violence and my government wouldn`t give a rats ass about my opinion if I didn`t have the power to make them listen.

Take a deep breath man and let me assure you that I agree with you, except the "why post something you don`t agree with".

All sides should be posted as long as they are supported by facts, no matter if they are agreeable or not. If that doesn`t happen, you get what we currently have, considering it seems like 90% of IABers are on the left.

Hey: No worries @Smutleybutt! I tend to agree with you more than not!
And if I`m proven wrong on this? I`ll be PROFUSE with my apology! Embarassingly so!
But I`m 99% confident that ONE "mod" has ill intentions and makes IAB BIGOTED as a result.

Time will tell.

@kitteh9: Enjoy your movie!
Then understand: I am the one fighting for free speech.
That "other mod" is the one fighting for censorship and slavery.
That @FancyLad has taken a "neutral" side in this? Is pathetic.
Is it free? Is it censored? ie: REMOVED from the suggestion list by "you know who"?

I HAVE EVIDENCE!

And I`m as mad as heck, and I won`t take it anymore!

This is a two-tone discussion:
ONE: the content of this video.
TWO: the nature of IAB`s rules.

I`m all for "free speach" and NO ONE can deny that!
I`m utterly opposed to "political correctness" which is what I`m seeing here.

5cats I am a mod. It is my job to create views and comments and traffic on the site. I approve things I don`t agree with if I think it will do these things. Your submissions or any submissions.
A controversial subject of any kind should not be ignored because of my likes or dislikes.
What a boring place this would be if only one persons opinion mattered. Do you want me to start pulling down all the ones I disagree with? Like others do? Going to see a movie now. So I will return later.

Sorry @Smutleybutt: If you stick your neck in here, it`s liable to be chopped off!
WHY do I care?
The USA is a MONSTER I live next to. An 800 pound Gorilla! Whatever it does? MY country feels the wrath thereof!
OK?
You`re allowed to ask a question, but by sticking your "nose into it" you also risk getting Bonked in the schnoz!
I care deeply about the USA since every single thing that happens "down there" will show up in Canada sooner or later...

@Kitteh9: I`ve "alerted" @Fancylad to MANY wrongdoings by "you know who." and yes, he`s said he`ll have a word with him.
BUT the abuse keeps comming!
If you DO NOT AGREE with the video... why post it? WTF? If you posted a pro-Nazi video, I`d be just as angry! Hate them Nazis! ffs!

Yeah I "get it" you may have approved some of my suggestions (before they were deleted...) but really, how can you compare MY offerings to this?
Really: I`ve never offered a posting which I "disagree with" in order to discredit the "other side" or anything like that!
I continue to be really, REALLY angry...

chill out man, it was a serious question. i was seriously curious, and you do exhibit extreme obsessiveness over most of the political posts, am i not allowed to ask a simple question and not get a calm, courteous answer? was i discourteous to you at all in my question? do i not deserve the same courtesy?

5Cats I didn`t create the video. I don`t agree with everything in the video. I had seen it and thought it should be put up to show what the creator and maybe many others may be feeling and create conversation on what HE believed. I didn`t say this was fact. I used the word `may` in the subtitle.
I don`t agree with a lot of your posts that I have approved in the past, but I still approved them (get it?)
As for your question: "This site allows a "mod" to delete opinions which differ from his, what does that say about this site?"
I don`t think fancy is aware of how bad it gets on these threads, and the behavior of some people may go unnoticed (not fact, just my guess). He is busier than most may know. I feel very badly about some of the behavior I see. It angers me also, but there is only one person who can fix that...two if the person responsible for said behavior would stop themselves.

Oh for F*ck sakes @Smutleybutt! Where is your brain at?
Justice: knows no bounderies, ok?
Canada: really depends on the USA, Ok?
Truth: knows NO boundries: SO if I as a Canadian say: this is true. IT DOESN`T MATTER where I`m from! Is it true or not?
Answer me that, my friend, or...

HERE is an utterly UNTRUE recounting of the events of that fateful night.
False from 1 second in, til the end.
Yet it gets approved? Why? How? Who?
Mad as hell? Yeah I`m it!
It`s reality people: you are being manipulated by the MSM, and I AM HERE to try to keep IAB from doing the same!

@Kitteh9: I have no troubles with your "track record" in fact I approve of it!
BUT a "history of good" does not outweigh an act of evil.
Sorry, evil IS the correct term.
You KNOW how badly things have been biased here. You know that "someone" has literally "gotten away with murder".
But you suggest something so UTTERLY BIGOTED it shakes the foundations of morality?
Really?

Yeah, that was just terrible. I would say that we should see a video of the "other side" of this, but I have no idea what it would be. If a talking cartoon gun says it`s not a conspiracy, it must be truuuuue.

Thank you for your honest response @Kitten9.
I`m far from calm, I`m really quite angry! I`ve endured slander and hatred from "you know who" for far too long. I`ve complained, but it seems to have fallen on deaf ears.
THIS is just utter LIES! HOW can you claim to "show different opinions" when one sid is a LIE and the other side is the TRUTH?
What does that make YOU?
Authenticate ONE "fact" in this video. I dare you!

Then ask yourself: This site allows a "mod" to delete opinions which differ from his, what does that say about this site?

Obama had TWO YEARS of majority, fillibuster-proof Democrat rule.
Please show how ONE "factoid" offered in this post stands up to scrutiny?
It`s fake, it`s false and it`s a f*cking lie.

I hold @FancyLad personally resposible for this hate-crime.

5Cats, First, calm down. I don`t always agree with the content of my posts, I merely try to show different opinions on different subjects. I am not pushing any agendas with my submissions like others on this site. Look at my track record, you should see I try to show both sides if I can.
Also as a mod, it is good to present subjects that create conversation...even if you don`t agree with them.
As for your posts disappearing, there is one mod on here that admits to pulling your posts and submissions and brags about it quite often. I never delete submissions and have never banned even one person yet. I believe everyone deserves an opinion even if I don`t like it. I believe videos should be posted even if I don`t always like the content. Your side of the story isn`t the only side that should be heard.

I learned something from this video. My state was colored red when I assume he was referring to "stand your ground" laws. Good to know. That was the only useful piece of "knowledge."
