TINFOILHAT: Voter fraud in 2012 election?


Maker of Unskewed Polls Creates ‘Obama Voter Fraud’ Map — See Which States He Thinks Should’ve Been Romney’s    Posted on November 23, 2012 at 9:15pm by Mytheos Holt

Evidence of vote fraud is very much like that. Those who engage in it are slick and do all they can to hide it, so the evidence is often quite circumstantial. In fact, often the circumstantial evidence is all the evidence we have, such was finding tens of thousands of bogus votes in the ballot box, we didn’t see someone actually put them there, but they are found, they are there, and they are clearly evidence of vote fraud. Such is true of the voting divisions where Obama gets 100 percent of the votes cast. As if anyone REALLY believes that is legitimate.

It’s the old joke by Stalin about who counts the vote. And, Daley who would ask: “How many do we need?”

I have ZERO confidence in the USA’s voting process until there is: (1) an irrefutable paper based process (I’m a computer geek and I know how fragile they are) and (2) an irrefutable voter identification requirement.

Then maybe we’ll get an honest count.

POLITICAL: What there’s corruption in yet another Gooferment program?


Report: How Food Stamps Benefit Corporations (EBT is Big Business)
Posted on November 17, 2012 by Nick Sorrentino

*** begin quote ***

An investigation by the Government Accountability Institute has found that:

Three companies – J.P. Morgan EFS, Affiliated Computer Services, and eFunds – provide EBT services for 49 states and 3 US territories.

Since 2004, 18 of 24 states who contract with J.P. Morgan to provide welfare benefits have contracted to pay $560,492,596.02. New York alone has a seven-year contract worth $126,394,917.

Projected average food stamp spending post-recession will be 175% greater than prerecession average spending, from $28 billion to $77 billion.Since 2009, 32 states have followed the USDA’s suggestion to use Broad Based

Categorical Eligibility “as a way to increase SNAP participation and reduce State workloads.”

Changing the rules for eligibility, along with state-level changes in

application methods, has contributed to a 70 % increase in food stamp participation from 2007 to 2011.

Lax security by EBT processors and states invites food stamp fraud, often through social media. There are understaffed fraud investigation units at both the federal and state level. For example, Florida has just 63 staff positions to police approximately 3 million EBT users state-wide. These investigators not only handle TANF and SNAP eligibility fraud, but also EBT trafficking, Social Security Disability and Medicaid eligibility fraud, Emergency Financial Assistance for Housing, and Low Income Energy assistance, among many others.

This is just no surprise. Argh!

RANT: Red Cross stymied by NYC Gooferment


Article – Why there are no Red Cross shelters in New York City
Posted on November 21, 2012

*** begin quote ***

But that shelter operation never came to pass, and volunteers were told that the Red Cross would not be needing shelter workers. In the meantime, images of New York City’s many devastated neighborhoods filled nightly newscasts; and the housing situation for many New Yorkers grew increasingly dire. The city has estimated that between 20,000 and 40,000 residents could be homeless or forced to live in unheated homes with no running water or power. The conditions are particularly deplorable in the high rises that dot the landscape near the waterfront in Brooklyn and Queens. About 5,200 Staten Islanders have applied for FEMA housing, but according to the New York Post only 24 or so have been placed.

Criticism has rained down on the Red Cross for not providing places for this mass of displaced people to live, but it seems that the aid organization is not permitted to set up shelters in the city due to a snarl of red tape.

*** and ***

Moral of the story is, even if there are groups predicated on disaster services, and they get to the scene, and local governemnt has plans as well, there’s no guarantee anything is going to get done. You’re far better off preparing on your own.

Which, really, brings me to something I’ve been curious about. Everyone is related to everyone in NYC. Big Catholic, Jewish, Italian, Irish families with relatives spread all over the place….why are these people not staying with relatives?

*** end quote ***

I’m not fan of “Big Charity” — Red Cross, United Way, any of the institutional charities — but I don’t fault them for not being able to get anything done

POLITICAL: The total failure of the Last Responders to prevent looting


November 22, 2012
Why Did the Coverage Stop?
Posted by Lew Rockwell on November 22, 2012 09:30 PM

*** begin quote ***

Why did the insistent coverage of Sandy stop so suddenly? Because of the stupidty, hostility, arrogance, and crookery of FEMA and the rest of central, state, and local governments. and the people’s burning hatred of them in NJ and NY. Such things must not be mentioned, nor the total failure of the Last Responders to prevent looting.

{Extraneous Deleted}

*** end quote ***

I thought that the Gooferment’s politicians and bureaucrats were arrogant.

It was terrible what they did to the victims of the Hurricane.

Then there was the insult that flood insurance would only cover primary residences. (Personally, I’ve been paying for more than 30 years and never heard a whisper of that.)

A plague on all their houses.

MONEY: Why the BND is an important exemplar in the road back to liberty

On Tuesday night’s Free Talk Live, a caller tried to make the case for the “Bank of Oregon” a la the “Bank of North Dakota”.

I thought the hosts didn’t understand the point he was making. (Yes, he made it very badly. As you would expect to a non-politician non-public speaker. Not that I’m any better. But, I think he was on to something.)

So I wrote up some stalking points and called in.

(As a long time AMPlifier and long time listener since back when the boys were in Flori-Duh fighting the good fight, I knew that they were going to be a tough “sell”. In retrospect, I should have prepped some more.)

Here are my points: 

# – # – #  

Why the Bank of North Dakota is important to secession and liberty:

(1) It’s a depository for all state tax collections and fees; The state itself and all state agencies do their banking with BND. Wrests control from politicians and their cronies on Wall Street.

(2) It plows the funds (I should have said “capital”!) back into the state in the form of infrastructure, farm, business, and student loans. Consistent with sound fiscal and banking practices.

(3) It acts as a bankers’ bank or a wholesale bank. So the BND provide services to banks, whether it’s check clearing, liquidity, or bond accounting safekeeping. It can subsitute for the Federal Reserve System. 

(4) It provides a dividend back to the state. In the case of BND that 60M$ or 50% of their annual profit. That’s profit that everywhere else goes to crony capitalism.

(5) It deprives the current Federal politicians and bureaucrats of the ability to inflate the currency. A state bank could introduce a hard currency or allow free market competition in currency. 

This could be a stepping stone to “killing” the FED. It is a way to “shrink” the problem. Replacing the FED with 50 State Banks is a good step on the road to liberty.

Here’s the link to my “performance”; starts at the 1:18 mark and completes at the 1:32 mark.


I must have done well because I got a huge chink of air time. At about the 45 mark of the second hour and held over as the first bock on the third hour.

So the hosts must have found me “interesting”.

As expected Ian, who is a raving Anarcho-Capitalist, immeidately went for the jugular, that he is against ANYTHING that the government does. (Me 2, but how does one change the status quo. It took 100 years to get into this mess; it’ll take a 100 to get out. The water erodes everything by the passage of time.) Ian, a more a pragmatic libertarian, was ore open to being convinced. Initially, the third host (Stephanie?) didn’t have anything to say; she joined in later on as she got the concept. 

I never got the feeling that they were “convinced”, but they did understand that it was not the absurd idea that came across by that prior caller. Two out of three seemed to like the conversation. So it wasn’t a bad experience. Next time I do it, I’ll be better prepared.

Any way listen to me as a “talk show caller” and give me your opinion.

Ipad1: interesting problem

I have never been happy with the “app store” concept. As usual, immoral, inefficient, and ineffective.

(this is, as readers of my blog will know, my standard meme for gripes. Stuff that’s immoral is always wrong. Ineffective is does it work. Inefficient is it easy and cheap.)

The “app store” concept is;

~ “immoral” in that it transfers control from the “buyer” to the “seller”

~ “ineffective” in that problems are insoluble; support is non-existent

~ “inefficient” in that it doesn’t work flawlessly

My current gripe is the GMAIL icon has disappeared from the front screen, but is running in the background. I get alert messages on new email.

Double clicking start does not show it in the task list.

A hard restart or a soft restart doesn’t recover it.

App store thinks it is installed.


I have had problems with app store in the past that were never solved.

Argh squared!!

Loss of control of my device annoys me.
