With trenchant political commentary like this, it's hard to believe that he has January ad openings.

Why paper? Let's just use reeds or stones or popsicle sticks or something.

Of course the pro-Trump and Russian hacking asshats have to come in making stupid remarks in favor paperless voting machines.

I certainly approve this, but Kamala Harris, my senator, is a grandstanding moron.

I'm not a fan of many of some of Dianne Feinstein's positions, but she has displayed intelligence, grit and wisdom throughout her career. Harris has none of this. When Feinstein leaves the Senate, she'll be replaced with a Harris clone. Truly sad for my state.

And if we do have paper ballots, how about we ask for photo ID and proof of citizenship when voting? Without those, why even pretend there's any concern with the integrity of our elections?

Because the real threat to voter fraud doesn't come from a specific voter. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯.

A state ID *and* proof of citizenship is ridiculous. LOL A state ID should enough, not also your birth certificate and passport.

Plus, it would never happen since it's the redneck, racist assholes that always vote Republican would then find it harder to vote. Voting laws are only designed to limit blacks, women, and other minorities in the US.

In CA, a state ID isn't proof of citizenship.

In my opinion presenting an acceptable photo ID should be more than enough to vote. Let alone a current original utility bill.

If you forgot, lost or otherwise do not have an acceptable photo ID at the polls, then you should have to sign an affidavit stating you are who you say you are and still be allowed to vote.

Proof of citizenship should not be required in my opinion.

There is a very low barrier to obtaining an acceptable photo ID or something like an original current utility bill.

I also think that convicted felons and anyone currently incarcerated should be allowed to vote.

The percentage of voters is abysmal in the USA. If it were up to me it would be illegal to not vote.

If you are not a net payer of federal income tax, you should not be allowed to vote.

No they are not. They are designed to insure the person voting is who they say they are. Unless you want to say blacks, women, and other minorities are dumb as rocks and can't do something as simple as get a state ID, there is nothing wrong with ID for voting.
