Holder blocks Texas ID Voter law

The Constitution does not mandate that all the big decisions will be made by the Courts and bureaucrats and only the inconsequential will be made by the Legislature.
Wonder how many photo ID’s Holder required in the “Operation Gunwalker” he enabled?
Breaking news Monday morning (Texas Tribune here, Washington Post story here) is that the Obama Administration has refused to allow — under the 1965 Voter’s Rights Act – the implementation of the Texas voter ID law passed by our elected Legislature last May!
This is overreaching and poor (pointed, result-driven) use of statistics.
How many “Hispanics” don’t have “Spanish surnames?” How many with Spanish surnames don’t consider themselves disadvantaged?
Why is there no mention of the traditional racial minority, African Americans, in so many of the news article quotes from Holder?
I needed a photo ID to pick up a FedEx shipment. I can’t use my credit card without a photo ID. College and High School students get photo ID’s at school.
Good grief, I need a photo ID and to allow a stranger to grope me if I want to go on an airplane.
And last week, at the Nation’s Capitol, I had to submit to scanning to enter any of the Federal buildings!
And I needed that photo ID to check into my hotel.
The Voting Rights Act is 40 years old and was in reaction to the abuses of Democrats. Most of the subsequent 40 years, Democrats held the power in Texas and in the US House and Senate. Why is this considered a Democrat cause? (In my opinion: because they are *not* in power at the moment, at least to the extent they want it.)
Larry and I heard snippets of the Martin Luther King, Jr. Lincoln Memorial Speech, yesterday. The crowd sang, “We shall overcome.”
I wonder whether we will ever get to that point where anyone feels that we have overcome?
