This is really something that the Supreme Court should address. I personally don't think police should be allowed to just search a phone and social media sites without a search warrant because if they do have it private they really are trying to keep things somewhat secure. I think that how the guy was convicted of a drive by was a little ridiculous because the police had no reason to search his phone and suspect him of anything except an expired tag.

Margaret Silhasek's comment, May 2, 2014 2:24 PM
I agree that the NRA doesn't need to care about it. I also don't really know if the President should be choosing the surgeon general either... it's not like the president knows everything about surgery and medicine so he really should have a panel of doctors that decides who the surgeon general is or something.
Kenna Johnson's comment, May 2, 2014 11:00 PM
I completely agree with the two of you. I don't think it should be the NRA's responsibility to care who the president chooses, but I also think he shouldn't choose without consulting a panel of docs

How neat! I never realized how much of a variety there was of immigrants. I always thought that it was just a lot of Germans, Irish, and Norwegians that came to America, but there are a lot of Italians! I feel like I don't come across many Italians nowadays so this is really interesting to see how many were initially here in America!

Virginia Passes Photo-ID Voting Requirement

“ Opponents say such laws are meant to suppress turnout by poor and minority voters, but supporters say they prevent fraud.”
Via Pearlanne Zelarney
Hope Schuster's insight:
I absolutely think that you should be required to show government issued photo ID. The only major downfall is the people who do not have photo ID, but generally most people do have this. It would keep people from voting as others, and issues related to that would be cut way down.

Margaret Silhasek's comment, March 21, 2014 1:39 PM
I think this is fabulous. I really think that everyone should have to show a Photo ID to vote. In regards to the issue "somepeople may not have one" I think that this will push people to take voting more seriously, and if they don't have a photo ID, people that are actually serious about voting will take that step and responsibility to get their photo ID.
Kenna Johnson's comment, March 23, 2014 9:03 AM
I think this is great. Of course they should be required to show an ID!

This is a scary and crazy story. I can't belieVe something like this happened. But why was the little one in the bath tub anyway? I don't think the mom intentionally did this but that is still a horrible thing to do. 

Tasha Freeman's curator insight, March 13, 2014 9:27 AM

I think they have a complete legit reason to try her for it. She should have been watching her kids better.

The Senate has the potential to become a Republican majority. This would cause a number of problems with our President being democrat. There could be a lot of bills that take a long time to get passed because of the Presidential veto power. It seems like it should be a very close race to who will come out with the majority
