Bear with me as I undertake a task generally not suited for those of us logically inclined. But I'm trying get a grasp on the liberal mind here. Can someone please help me understand, what are the discriminatory effects of voter ID laws?  Anyone?

None.  If requiring ID to vote is discriminatory then so is requiring ID to get on an airplane, cash a check, etc.

They discriminate against the lazy and the illegal.

... and I would venture a guess that the occurrence of check writing and airplane traveling in the minority groups in question is perhaps even greater than that of voting.
