Modern Use Of Language

This morning's Hartford Courant online covered early problems at polling places in New Haven. (For today's Democratic primary) According to the report, this one paticular polling place in New Haven was about a half hour behind schedule in getting set up.

According to one Robert Schoenberger,

"It's a shame that in America we are disenfranchising people who are trying to vote and given the rates of voting I don't think that is a very smart thing to be doing."

Remember when blacks were denied the right to vote because they were black. They were disenfranchised. This here, this is an inconvenience. In some parts of the world, people risk their lives to vote in democratic elections. In the United States, we claim every minor inconvenience is some sort of a violation of our rights.
