    Does anybody find it strange that we still have a voting limit? I think in time there will be no voting restrictions based on age.

    We should bring back literacy tests. The first two questions would be extensively related to the First and Second Amendments. Those would screen out a number of dumb shits on both sides of the aisle. The First Amendment topic would weed out some people here, too, who seem to think the amendment allows anyone to say or write anything at any time.

    I think in time there will be voting restrictions on people who calculate MLB magic numbers in early May ... ;)
  5. IQ tests should be mandatory.
    For voting.
    And posting.

    I think if there is going to be a voting age, it should be 11 or 12. If you can read and write, you should be able to vote.

    Eh, forget voting ages. There shouldn't be an age limit for driving or learner's permits either. If a 3 year old can drive a car, more power to him.

    As governor, Smith will push ice cream company subsidies. He is, after all, a job creator.

    So you'd be, what, 2 or 3 years away?

    How about an age limit for SportsJournalists.com? Or IQ limit?

    The IQ limit would weed out a few of the current posters.
