VOTER VALIDATION FINGERPRINT READER, IRIS SCAN, OR TAKE A PICTURE

I cannot think of any reason to be adverse to this, unless you ...more »

Also, 59% of them live in California, Texas, Florida, New York, New Jersey and ...more »

PURPOSE: It is completely repulsive and obscene to think that kids could be enslaved e.g. in Africa in the process of making the raw materials for chocolate, and all over the world for various reasons.

I think it is fair and justified to label any individuals or businesses that participate ...more »
