True. Me and Mrs SoCal fell in love with the Capanna Brunello in Montalcino. It was magnificent.

It was a magical day... sipping fantastic vino and watching the cyclo tourists in their vintage garb preparing for L'Eroica. Good stuff.

See that 8% Caucasian versus 25% African American and 18% of 18-24 year olds? And you wonder why Rs are so insistent on photo ID laws. It's not to prevent voter fraud, it's to prevent certain eligible voters from being able to vote. Fortunately, we have Pennsylvania House Republican Leader Mike Turzai to explain why photo ID laws are so important to Rs.

So do you prefer wine from Italy or France?

I don't know much about wine but my buddy said Strawberry Hill by Boones farm is pretty good.
Preferences are cultural. I'm multicultural, although I doubt yours is good.

In any case French wines are really ****ing good, but Italian wines are just so exciting.

Actually, I prefer Californian wines in many cases. Depends on the day though.

Yeah, being required to prove your identity should be outlawed.

On the other hand, if a person can't figure out how to get a valid ID then how did that person figure out how to register to vote? And isn't registering to vote an infringement?

This is a joke right?

People who don't have a valid ID in this day and age is a freaking lost cause. What a stupid argument. An ID will not stop anyone from voting???????? Laughing at anyone who makes this some type of issue.

I asked around the office here and so far I'm not able to find one single person who does not have an ID. The Dutch, Norwegians, French, British, Canadians, and Mexicans etc. have an ID here at my office. What really is the problem with having an ID?
