The EU

Google says the EU requires a notice of cookie use (by Google) and says they have posted a notice. I don't see it. If cookies bother you, go elsewhere. If the EU bothers you, emigrate. If you live outside the EU, don't go there.

Voter ID in Virginia

For John, BLUFVoting is important.  A little active protection is in order.  Nothing to see here; just move along.

At Pajamas Media Mark Obenshain considers the number of "Pinochios" The Washington Post deserves for its headline about 450,000 Virginia Voters without a qualifying identification.  Four.

Here is something to consider.  If you are blind here in Massachusetts and you have a Service Dog, the Service Dog has a photo ID.  While I am dead set against a national ID program, I do not see what the problem is with citizens getting a photo ID from their local State Government.  What do you do when you are buying booze?  If they ask for a photo ID do you whine and stomp your foot and make a scene rather than have a proper ID?  When you go for medical care do you get an exemption to the rule I have to follow regarding showing an ID?

Sure, walking down the street you shouldn't have to have an ID.  But we are talking about taking part in Government, actively.  I think flashing an ID is OK.  In fact, it might be therapeutic, a step along the path to becoming a full, participating citizen.

Was the article a form of BenSmithing?  Mr Obenshain seems to think so, although he doesn't use that term.

Hat tip to the Instapundit.
