Don’t Trip Over Piles Of Shit

 

A collection of past campaign promises.

I won’t be voting for President because I don’t believe anything these guys are saying. I will be voting in local elections but have no favorite professors at all in the electoral college.  What’s that you say – I should just hold my nose and pick the lesser of two evils?

Naaah – I’m ALREADY  holding my nose because it’s almost impossible to ignore the daily hands full of horseshit each side is throwing at the other.  It’s also pretty entertaining to watch the passion some people have about all this.  Suddenly the country’s very existence is based on their guy winning the election.  I don’t think so.

Who’s lying more  – Obama or Romney?  It’s pretty much a dead heat and both are spinning so much they may start drilling for oil with their shoes.  Think your guy lies less?  Here’s a page you should bookmark:

http://www.factcheck.org/

This is perhaps the most nonpartial, fact-based organization on the internet.  It checks candidates’ statements against the truth and the truth usually says, “ouch.” That’s because both of these dolts are equally full of shit.

    The jerk who raises the most money will likely win. It is quite true the candidates lie to “the people”; they can get away with it because most folks are woefully uninformed. The truth is saved for the big donors.

    In NY it generally doesn’t matter who you vote for because the democratic candidate is a shoe-in. I dislike both Obama and Romney and will be voting for the Libertarian candidate. If I lived in one of the “swing states” I would have to decide between the two.

    Frank, if Al Gore had defeated George Bush in 2000, the nation would be a very different place today. You can argue whether it would have been better or worse, but it would have been different. And yes, factcheck is a great site.

    Dumbasses. The election is already over. We’ll never have a free election again until they get rid of electronic voting (The guy paying the best untrackable hacker wins, and HE works for HS or the FBI or the CIA, we have no more hanging chads because we have no paper trail to check. so long as anyone getting a drivers license in Fla is automaticly sent a voters registration card (and immigrants can drive) and the dead keep hopping up at election time every 2 years-well-what *I can’t stand is our own Government trying to turn our country over to a NEW WORLD ORDER at the UN that has IRAN as the head of the council on anti small arms trading while they are still providing machine guns to other dictators.

    But in case you might need to know when you pile shit along a barn like that the seepage through the walls turns to salt peter-the main ingredient in Black gun and blasting powder. Pile that shit high farmers.

    When I moved into this building a few years ago, I had to fill out a new voter registration form. I turned the paper over and was surprised to see instructions in at least a dozen languages (I am not exaggerating!) It was not just Spanish and say, French – but different Chinese dialects, Russian, and a whole bunch of others.

    I asked the office lady a very simple question: “Shouldn’t people who vote have to know at least enough English to read these simple instructions?” She just shrugged.

    How did it all get this strange?

    As I understand it, the Voting Rights Act of 1965 requires any jurisdiction receiving a request for a registration form in another language to supply one. In some lily white cities or counties or states it might not ever come up, but in places like LA or NYC or Rochester NY you have immigrant citizens from all over. It could get pretty tiresome printing up a whole new batch every few weeks, so many areas use a catch-all form the way we do.

    Since an immigrant has to pass a citizenship test to be able to register, why is this provision part of the Act? Because of the potential for fraud. Joe mentioned bringing back the literacy tests. In theory, not a bad idea, but in actuality a white guy would be asked to name the v.p. of the U.S. while a black guy would have to recite the preamble to the constitution. In other words, we have to force our scumbags to behave themselves.

    The current push to have picture IDs at the polling place is a transparent attempt to disenfranchise the elderly and the poor, many of whom lack a photo ID. I don’t drive, so I didn’t have one myself until just a couple years ago. If you don’t own a car, and most city-dwelling poor people don’t, there’s a very good chance you don’t have a photo ID.

    IMMIGRANTS IN FLORIDA DON’T HAVE TO PASS ANYTHING BUT A DRIVERS TEST TO GET A VOTERS REGISTRATION FORM ALREADY FILLED OUT MAILED TO THEM– NO CITIZENSHIP TEST REQUIRED. WHY SHOULD IT BE LIKE NY EVERYWHERE ELSE? IT IS NOT.
