Tennessee Screws Poor with ID Requirement

Starting July 1st the state of Tennessee will begin a program that has no regard for the poor, and will probably disenfranchise some elderly, an ID requirement program will go into effect.

Don't worry though, it's not to vote, picture ID is only required for that in a few cases. No, this requirement is to buy a six pack of beer, regardless of age. So now, in Tennessee, regardless of age, or ability to pay for an ID, you need one for cold medicine and Budweiser, but you can still vote without it.

It amazes me that Governors who scoff at the idea of an ID to vote continue to sign laws that require them for any number of other things, not seeing the irony of their positions.
