It’s not a joke. It‘s the reality in President Obama’s home state.
Illinois has a new law that took effect on January 1 requiring all people who purchase drain cleaners or any caustic substances to provide a government issued photo ID. And retailers now must ask for identification from those buying drain cleaners and maintain extensive records of which caustic products have been purchased, in what amounts, and by whom.
Look! Proof!!! Illinois Liberals want poor people and minorities to live in a shacks with plugged up sinks and shitters!! Those racist bastards!!
Obama’s inner desire to go past Congress legislatively was once again expressed in an interview with KOAA-TV in Colorado Sprongs.
Rob Quirk, KOAA-TV: “And one year from today we will know if this a one-term or two-term president. So, I asked the president what will it take from now until then to not only win Colorado again, but reelection as well.”
President Obama: “Well, what we’re going to have to do is continue to make progress on the economy over the next several months. And where Congress is not willing to act, we’re going to go ahead and do it ourselves. But it would be nice if we could get a little bit of help from Capitol Hill.”

The American Civil Liberties Union sued the state of Wisconsin on Tuesday over its law that will require voters to present official identification, claiming it is unconstitutional and will deprive citizens of their right to vote.
The federal complaint seeks to block the voter ID law, which takes effect on February 21, 2012 for Wisconsin’s spring primary elections. It requires voters to present identification, such as a driver’s license or a passport, to cast ballots in federal, state and local elections.
Republicans and Democrats are tangling over voter ID laws ahead of the November 2012 presidential and congressional elections, with Republicans saying they fight fraud and Democrats saying they disenfranchise the poor and city-dwellers who are less likely to have drivers’ licenses or other ID.
