POLITICAL: The “machines” vote

Date: Tue, 26 Oct 2010 09:30:09 -0700
From: Lauren Weinstein
Subject: Voting machines selecting default candidates

*** begin quote ***

Some voters in Las Vegas have noticed that Democratic Senator Harry Reid’s name is checked by default on their electronic voting machines. By way of explanation, the Clark County Registrar says that when voters choose English instead of Spanish, Reid’s Republican opponent, Sharron Angle, has her name checked by default. *Slashdot*, 26 Oct 2010 http://bit.ly/cBXWSj

[Reid won re-election, perhaps because of the strong Latino vote. PGN]

And, we trust “elections”. Why?

If voting changed anything significant, do you think the elite would permit it? Think USSR voting.

For everyone who would rather not have a gun in the house!

In view of the recent Supreme Court ruling, sales of this new product may skyrocket.

The dummies in Washington think they are going to take away our guns, so check this out.  I like it!

They’d NEVER think of NAIL GUNS!

They’re concentrating on doing away with the BULLET-TYPE of ammunition! HAH!  I think I’m going to buy some NAIL GUNS and NAILS,
and, we don’t even have to REGISTER them or have LICENSES for them!


In addition, you don’t have to worry about them being CONCEALED!

Once in awhile something so totally cool comes out that even a guy who doesn’t normally even know what he would like for Father’s Day or Christmas would immediately ask for it:

Thank you, DeWalt!!!

Thank you, DeWalt!!!

New Nail Gun, made by DeWALT

It can drive a 16-D nail through a 2×4 at 200 yards.
This makes construction a breeze; you can sit in your lawn chair and build a fence.
Just get your wife to hold the fence boards in place while you sit back,

relax and when she has the board in the right place, just fire away.
With the hundred round magazines, you can build the fence with a minimum of reloading.  After a day of fence building with the new DeWalt Rapid fire nail gun, the wife will not ask you to build or fix anything else, probably, ever again.

RANT: Why doesn’t El Al have these security problems?


Airport body scans, pat-downs draw more complaints
(AP) – 13 hours ago

*** begin quote ***

“It’s all about security,” Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano said. “It’s all about everybody recognizing their role.”

*** end quote ***

I guess “We, The Sheeple” have to recognize our role to do what we are told by this representative of the elite who run this country.

I can’t image anything she could say that was not more telling about their thinking.

So shut up and get felt up.

We know what’s good for you.

The small fact, that this has NOTHING to do with security and everything to do with control, might enter YOUR thinking!

Did the Jews being loaded on the railcars in Nazi Germany feel this way? It’s all about training you to comply and follow orders!

Xraying pilots and feeling up screaming children is a GREAT security strategy. The terrorist must think this is funnier than a Saturday Night Live skit!

I refuse to fly! I suggest that you do too. Nothing will bring this issue to a head as empty airlines over the holidays. Sorry, but explain to all your disappointed relatives that they can’t see the grandchildren because of the TSA. Nothing will change this faster than a a bunch of <past tense synonym for urine output> off grandparents with lots of time to annoy “their representatives”.

Stop the nonsense now. Disband the TSA! Turn security back to the airlines.

Why doesn’t El Al have these security problems?

RANT: Bankruptcy for States


By Dick Morris And Eileen McGann

*** begin quote ***

One of the first orders of business to come up in the new Republican-controlled House of Representatives will be the demand for bailouts of states where expenditures have been especially profligate – California, New York, Michigan, Illinois, and Connecticut. Throughout 2009 and 2010, these states governments have stayed above water by repeated infusions of federal cash. These one-shot stimulus payments must be repeated each year. They are all non-recurring expenditures requiring separate annual appropriations.
The Republican House must say no and hold the line, stopping this raid on the federal Treasury. The cry in the caucus must ring loud: “No More Bailouts!”
But, as the Republicans demand fiscal discipline and refuse to make the citizens of the other, more responsible states subsidize the wayward finances of California and New York, we need to focus on the union power that has forced states, localities, and school boards to raise taxes, borrow money, and – ultimately – to depend on federal bailouts.

These unions have forced contracts on their states, localities, and school boards which provide for ever higher wages, benefits, and pensions. Even now, teachers are on strike in a suburb of Pittsburgh because they feel a 4.5% annual wage increase is inadequate!

*** end quote ***

This should be interesting.

One thing in a “corporate bankruptcy” is that past contracts are broken. Everyone gets a haircut. Pensions get dumped on the Federal Gooferment at a greatly reduced level; ask the Delta pilots about that.

It will be interesting.

GAMBLING: Borgata changes its comp formula

After a recent trip to Borgata in AC, my wife earned no comp dollars. That was strange. She played her “mystery slot dollars”, “bonus slot dollars”, and “slot dollars”. Actually turned out she actually made some money. She originally thought there was something wrong with her card.

By an experiment, we demonstrated that there was nothing wrong with her card.

Just that you NOW only get comps on what you play through their machines. And, it appears to be on a greatly reduced basis.

I’m going to try and quantify just how far they have “dialed” it back.
