Never let a good crisis go to waste.
They have no lower limit, they will exploit absolutely anything.
the table is right across the road for crying out loud.
Shame on the Dems , using another tragedy to push their votes.
Stunts like this would be all over the news and front pages if the GOP had done it.
There must be LAWS as to how, when, and where voter registration can be conducted.
Even if there were, you know how that would go...
“enforcing the law is racist”.
never let a crisis go to waste
voting is what white people do. it’s like studying.
If it were up to me the only way you could register to vote is to go to the secretary of state office and ask to register.
Protests in Ferguson, Mo., lure many from across the US
The Mankato Free Press / The Los Angeles Times ^ | August 20, 2014 | Kurtis Lee and Tina Susman
FERGUSON, Mo. Illai Kenney, a telecommunications student in Washington, found herself mesmerized by the constant stream of images flooding into her Twitter feed of protests underway in the small town of Ferguson, half a continent away.
Pictures of women whose eyes were swollen from tear gas. A mothers anguished weeping. Hundreds of citizens marching through the streets, their hands held aloft in defiance of a police force that had killed an unarmed young black man. She knew one thing: She had to be there.
Kenney quickly packed a bag, got in a car with friends and drove 1,300 miles west along Interstate 70 to Ferguson.
This is a movement. To see why these people my people were marching on the streets was just too much for me to just watch, said Kenney, 25, who is black....

Hi Pal, hope you are in good health, been some time since I last saw you.
The Dems have been pushing this incident because they have nothing else to run on, and to have done this just shows how disgusting the Dems will go.
I thought blacks were supposed to be upset over white cops, and this death , and yet there they are right across the road.
Hah, two can play that game. Set up a booth manned by black conservatives and register them as Republicans. The send out tweets for a flash mob in support of the police and set up a both at that event as well.
Well that’s sure a non sequitur.
Even if you have to manufacture a crisis.
Agreed, Not that this would happen, but the way things are going maybe they should be asked 5 questions on the issues before they can vote and if they get them wrong then no votes.
The Dems would never gain power across this country
Events in Ferguson definitely show a severe need for compulsory remedial civics courses for a sizable chunk of the American population.
When I was there they reached into a metal box full of 100 dollar bills and gave me one to register to vote. They offered me another 100 for each deceased relative I could sign up. I am pretty such they had atleast 10,000 dollars in cash.
Let all your friends know. Especially those that will be looting in Ferguson this weekend. /s
Sounds like a directive from The Community Organizer himself. Always use every opportunity to rile up the dumbest of the dumb and get them to vote for what you tell them to vote for. How easy is that!
