I imagine it mostly has to do with bank fees and overdraft charges. Undisciplined people get burned by those enough times that they'd rather take the predictable hits with check cashing places.

Also you can't garnish certain kinds of checks [we're rarely talking about "employers" here, folks], but you can garnish a bank account if there's money sitting in it. You can't garnish a jar full of cash.

Dozens of my employees are under garnishment.

And they're also using check cashing places?

You realize I don't know the personal habits of all my employees, right? I don't even know who is getting garnished as HR and payroll handle that. I can tell you from when I was lower down the org chart in other places, yes, there was an overlapping Venn for "garnishment" and "uses cheque cashing places." Teh poorz often make an array of bad choices. I know this as I spent many years poor and made bad choices at the time too as it's what everyone did. Part of how one stops being poor is learning your choices are bad and changing the trends in your decision making.

The Dems want to treat teh poorz like kids and this means they'll never learn to stop making bad choices.

Great, so people can avoid paying legal wage garnishments. Seems like the kind of people we should be helping.

'Turk is off base. Unless you're working in the grey economy they track you down.

What I meant was -- your response was a non-sequitur. I was talking about people who don't use banks, not people who are garnished. There's a lot of overlap, obviously, but of course there are people who work that are subject to garnishments. There are also a lot of people who don't work but still have significant income they need to keep away from creditors (or, often, their kids...).

If they learned to stop making bad choices they wouldn't vote for the Democrats anymore.

And those people are not getting said income in the form of a cheque but rather currency or goods.

No, they're usually getting it from the government, whether it's unemployment, social security, welfare, etc., or retirement plans, child support, alimony, whatever.

The partisan political gamesmanship about voter ID laws is pretty unambiguous. Suppressing the voter of people without ID, who are predominantly poor and/or black (and thus likely Democratic voters) is a feature, not a bug. That's well known, but the laws don't take any steps to mitigate the problem.


A non-partisan approach to voter fraud would include addressing absentee ballots. But old people vote Republican (and their kids who are fraudulently filling out their ballots), so there's no interest there.

Most of that stuff is done electronically so it's a moot point.

The racism of low expectations.

The problem here is stories don't match. We all know minorities pulled over without ID get shot how are they going to vote anyway?
