Republican vote-rigging
New York Post, by Editorial

How the worm has turned. After the 2000 presidential cliffhanger, in which Al Gore won the popular vote but George W. Bush won the election, Democrats led the charge in demanding the abolition of the Electoral College. Now that President Obama has been re-elected, Republicans are trying to change the formula by which the states allocate these votes. Both are bad ideas. Republicans are focused on purple states where they control both the governorship and the legislature — but where voters still went for Obama in November. Partly that’s because Democrats still dominate the large cities in these states.

Personally, I´m not in favor of abolishing the EC altogether. But people are fed up with big cities overriding their votes. Example being NY as a red state, but forced to support dems thanks to NYC. CA with LA & SF, NV with Las Vegas, PA with Philly, and the list goes on. It was a bad idea to only want this in battleground states. The rules should apply to everyone, or to no one. But there has to be some method of bringing votes down to the district level so people don´t feel disenfranchised by the metropolises.

If the big cities were producing honest votes,I´d probably be against this.But we have no clue how many votes are being stacked in these areas because poll watchers don´t get into the high cheat areas.It´s easy to assume all black people hated Romney but for him to get zero votes in many Philly wards,is hard to believe.How did walker survive two elections in Wis. but Obama still won there?

We heard before the election,both parties had scores of election lawyers spread out but they must have gone home instead of fighting for Col. West who´s election was clearly stolen.

I´m from Pennslyvania and I was one of the voters screaming for the redistribution of electorial votes. It seemed funny that all of the sudden in Phillie districts, that Republican poll watchers were being physically removed from the cites, 100% of the votes were for Obama....this really stinks. YES, make my vote count and this is not vote-rigging. Vote rigging is what happened in Phillie.

This is being considered in the VA legislature this term. I read that Romney would have had the majority of electoral votes over Obama in VA last November. I lean toward not changing this, but I see the point of voter fraud especially In the big cities as a reason to reconsider.

Each state makes its own rules about voting. If you have a party determined to steal a state´s election, I don´t see there is much that can be done...especially when electronic voting machines are used. When a clean election is no longer the goal, anything can happen.

The pressure is building.

The ´nice people´ who obey the law, work hard, pay the taxes and mind their own damnbidness are being marginalized and demonized, ridden hard and put up wet.

When this gets ugly and violent, let us make sure it is well known just who started it.

I like this idea. But I would like it better if all the states did this.

At least distributing the EC votes among the Congressional districts would make stuffing the ballot boxes a major undertaking. Right now, all the dems have to stuff are the boxes in the major cities.

Force the vote rigging to encompass the entire state and you have a whole new ball game.

Two points:

a. Screeching halt half-way through the first sentence: there is no such thing as a "popular vote" for President in the US. Got it, NY Post?

b. Drop the idea that all will be well "if we just scrap [or fix or get a make-over for] the Electoral College." It wont, and thinking it will is as dumb as thinking gun-free zones protect anyone but murderous lunatics. C´mon, think -- these are the same people who knowingly and intentionally
gave themselves carte blanche to violate insider-trading laws that would put any of us in jail. Whose personal net worth skyrockets faster than electricity rates under Obama. Does anyone seriously think this change or that change will matter to the people who steal, block, and manufacture-as-needed votes in the tens-of-millions?

Let´s start by jailing some of the voting-law criminals from the 2012 elections.

Keep the EC. What loyal Americans are sick of is voter fraud by Obama´s libber sychophants. As is voting (often) without having to present ID!

Dems need to drop their idea of awarding all of a state´s EC votes to whoever wins the popular vote nationwide, then talk to me.

As for the GOP idea, two states already award EC votes by congressional district and no one ever called it vote-rigging, so I fail to see the logic of opposition.

My preference is to keep the EC as it is in most states, but if one state is going to change its method, then everything is fair game, as long as it´s constitutional.

Germany could neither accept nor understand its defeat in the Great War so it bought into the canard that Communists, Homosexuals, Jews etc. ´stabbed the Fatherland in the back´.
In fact, Germany was defeated by grossly incompetent generalship at the decisive Battle of the Marne. Fast fwd to ´13. The wail is that Romney lost due to voter fraud. Absolute and utter malarkey. In virtually every battleground state all Executive and Legislative Offices are held by R´s. So they all conspired w/Alexrod to rig the election did they??? Sure. Does voter fraud exist? Yes, mostly in solid blue urban areas which increases the D vote from 55% to 59%!!!
Romney lost because he was a feckless and inept candidate which he proved emphatically in ´08. He stood for nothing and the majority of voters knew it in their bones; so better the incompetent devil they knew than the devil they didn´t. Principled conservatives warned repeatedly that Romney was an utter disaster waiting to happen and sure enough, he was.

1889: What the White House
Easter Egg Roll Looked Like
National Journal, by Brian Resnick    Original Article

President Benjamin Harrison had a crisis. A child had let go of a balloon in the White House, during the Easter Egg roll on April 22, 1889. And we all know how hard it can be to get a balloon down from the corner of a ceiling, lest deal with the child suddenly stripped of a most prized and buoyant plaything. The guests noticed. "Here it remained during the afternoon, and was subject of universal comment as to the best means to be resorted to in order to get it down again," a Washington Post reporter wrote of the day´s

A former U.S. Postal Service employee in Anchorage was arraigned Friday on charges he accepted at least $334,000 in disability and worker´s comp payments while he spent his summers fishing.

Washington -- When the Bureau of Land Management retreated from a standoff with Cliven Bundy, a few hundred people traveled to his Nevada ranch to protest what they see as an overreach of the federal government. (Snip)Because of the cheap rent, some, including fellow cattlemen who don´t ranch on public lands, call public land ranchers "welfare ranchers" and have no sympathy for the Western lot. But Griggs said they don´t understand that ranching public land is "not a bargain." "On public lands, you might get kicked off at any moment for a turtle. That´s kind of the deal," he said.

The year that we were married, my husband and I were given a truly wonderful gift: a honeymoon safari to southern Africa. It was an amazing experience. We now have all the magical memories that one would hope to bring home from a safari: the fresh lion kill, the mother elephant tenderly caressing her baby, the warthog crashing through the undergrowth with a leopard in hot pursuit. I could go on (and on and on), but nothing’s more pretentious than regaling people with tales of your honeymoon safari, so I’ll just reiterate once more: completely fabulous.

A thief was forced to stop the car he had stolen minutes before and release the children in the back seat after the a pair of 7-year-old twins attacked the driver with a toy snake. The car was taken from the home of Lucia Lozada in San Antonio, Texas on Thursday as the mother of the twin boys and a 1-year-old buckled in the back seat stood just a few feet from the vehicle. The family was preparing to go to church and the children´s father had just run back inside the house to get a baby bottle when a man hopped

President Obama is right. He told Major Garrett of CBS this week that “Mr. Putin’s decisions aren’t just bad for Ukraine. Over the long term, they’re going to be bad for Russia.” I believe that Putin’s adventures in Russia’s “near abroad” are a mistake. Indeed, they are part of a whole tapestry of wrongheadedness. It’s also bad for the Kremlin to crush dissent, censor the news, and hobble the economy by handing it over to oligarchs and a kleptocratic bureaucracy. Putin’s scapegoating and demonizing of gays isn’t only morally wrong, it’s not in Russia’s long-term interests either. That Putin prefers to

Matt Bevin, who is running against Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell in the Kentucky GOP primary, has come out with a new ad defending his claimed affiliation with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Bevin tries to sidestep the MIT controversy in his latest ad by claiming that he never portrayed himself as a graduate of the prestigious school. “I’m a small-business owner, I’ve not had a resume in over 20 years. I’ve never claimed on a resume or to anyone ever that I’m a graduate of MIT. This is a lie made up by Mitch McConnell to distract you from

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after
