You can tell when it's voting time in Florida. (Snip)And, of course, there is Palm Beach County, the home of the hanging chad. It's the county that put Florida's reputation for voting incompetence on the map. Last week the ghost of the hanging chad returned when election workers announced that some 27,000 absentee ballots cast in Palm Beach County cannot be digitally scanned because of a design flaw. Election workers reportedly were manually duplicating the bad ballots onto good ballots. The supervisor down there says not to worry, but so far in the county's early
Comments: And away we go. For those unaware, Palm Beach County is mainly liberals from the northeast. 'Rats are in charge of everything, just like the last time with GWB and the Gorebot and we all know how well that worked out.
It seems that whenever election-time rolls around, we no longer wonder if Florida is going to have issues. That's a given. It's only a matter of how positively the issues are going to affect the Democrat vote count.
Of COURSE it would be Palm Beach County with this problem. Liberals from the Northeast who will cast their 2nd votes for obama in the States they actually live in. Understandable. Amazing what terrible luck they have EVERY four years! Surely it's just a coincidence that the pathetic County can't even read ABSENTEE BALLOTS without having to "interpret" them. I sincerely hope OUR Lawyers are at work there and anywhere else demonrats vote.
I'd like to point out that it's always the democrat counties that have these little "issues". Do not call Floridians stupid and thereby paint us all with one broad brush. In my red-state district, we show ID, see our ballots scanned, the right person is voted for and we verify it, and things work like they were supposed to.
Palm Beach and Miami are every bit the liberal hellholes Chicago is. And if we somehow lose this election by a few votes, the screams for action on this crap are going to ring out over the whole nation.
This election scares us all to death because I think we all know just how close to Civil War II we really are. Pray for this country.
The next time somebody insults Florida because of the "hanging chad" fiasco, it is incumbent upon everyone to point out that Palm Beach County, home of the Hanging Chad, is a Democrat fiefdom of the like not seen since Carmine De Sapio controlled Tammany Hall and Boss Hague controlled Jersey City. In fact, a great many PB political types are the grandchildren and great-grandchildren of functionaries of these machines.
The Supervisor of Elections who installed the hanging chad system was a Democrat. I have always felt that Al Gore (and his supporters) were understandably enraged because Gore had been promised something like a 6,000 vote margin. Instead, somebody was arithmetically challenged and turned it into a 600 vote defeat.
As the saga of the Affordable Care Act continues, another mammoth program being pushed by the Department of Education for approval by all state legislatures is a national curriculum, which is called Common Core State Standards.(Snip)CCSS expedites the process of making government schools a vehicle for propagandizing students. The centralized government would be able to "teach" moral relativism, fairness, political correctness, multiculturalism, tolerance for the progressive agenda and bigotry for the traditional moral values. These Marxist/progressive concepts are changing the culture to welfare dependency.
Barack Obama is either the most inept president ever to sit in the White House or he is an enemy of the Republic. For the last 10 years, I have watched this man´s uncanny rise to the pinnacle of power and vacillated between those two choices. I have come to the conclusion that ideology trumps inexperience. His ego is so massive, and his leftist beliefs so strong, that he is willing to throw our country under the big international bus. Let´s review our Middle East policy since Obama took office. He made it his top priority to go to the
PASCO COUNTY -- Detectives in Pasco County have made an arrest in the home invasion shooting that happened on Friday.They say 18-year-old Ryan Mills was taken into custody after finishing treatment at Bayonet Hospital for gunshot wounds he suffered during that armed robbery. Detectives say Mills and another man busted into a Land O´ Lakes home brandishing a fake gun. Turns out, someone in that home had a real gun and opened fire on the two men, shooting them both. The sheriff´s office is still investigating the incident and tells us the other suspect will be arrested once he is released from the hospital.
Four and a half years in office the president is still in campaign mode delivering speeches to handpicked audiences including high school kids who haven´t a clue as to what the heck he is talking about.(Snip) Instead of a president trying to build confidence, we have not a great communicator but a great divider who is preaching class warfare and hatred that is like throwing a match into the proverbial gas tank. Instead of providing calm and reason and confidence Obama in his speech predicts violence...
We live in an age of surveillance. Right now, more information about us is available to more entities faster and easier than ever before. The FBI has been floating a plan to require all client-side communications software — be it voice, video, or text — to include mandatory backdoors that can be activated by law enforcement bodies to silently eavesdrop on any traffic coming in or out of that program. This will allow authorities to circumvent message-level encryption, which has stymied their current efforts.
MADISON, Wis.--Another year, another campaign. Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker is gearing up for re-election next year, his third race in four years. But the Republican’s courting of out-of-state donors and conservatives, his plans to visit Iowa this week and his refusal to say whether he would serve out another full term if elected suggest he might be seeking a much bigger prize — the presidency. Not that he will openly acknowledge as much.
This is a tale that would bring a smile to the face of Josef Mengele, Adolf Hitler and Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger: the true story of a black abortionist making a fortune killing black babies — and occasionally a black mother — in the filthiest conditions imaginable.(Snip)Perhaps most disturbing in the report is this: “The search team discovered fetal remains haphazardly stored throughout the clinic — in bags, milk jugs, orange juice cartons, and even cat food containers.” Toilets were back up, clogged with body parts from murdered babies: Black babies, Asian babies, babies whose
TAMPA He claimed he was a war hero injured in Iraq and bilked the Veterans Administration for thousands of dollars in medical care. He even persuaded the organization Vacations for Veterans to give him a free trip to Hawaii.(Snip)Crane portrayed himself as "the most decorated veteran in Florida," U.S. Assistant Attorney Amanda Kaiser said. Crane had falsely said he was awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross, two Purple Hearts, an Air Medal and other war-related awards. He told local veterans´ groups that "he was blind in one eye, had 24 metal plates in his face, took a bullet in his back
Pepsi´s video of NASCAR driver Jeff Gordon pulling a prank on an unsuspecting car salesman is going viral, racking up more than 1.4 million views since being uploaded Tuesday. Gordon, a champion NASCAR driver, disguised himself for the video and pretended he´d never driven a powerful car before, then gives the car salesman the test drive of a lifetime in a Camaro.
This past week has been a news filled bonanza of important events. Let me start with the demise of the Dictator of Venezuela, Hugo Chavez, who succumbed to cancer after his extensive treatment in Cuba.(Snip) It is possible that he may yet get the Nobel Peace award posthumously for his nationalizing businesses and bringing 24 percent, or there about, inflation to his country.It is amazing that a country blessed with humongous oil reserves should still have naked poverty and huge unemployment after 14 years of enlightened rulership. One thing he reportedly did do well was to amass a private
"Ok, the Republicans surprised us and hung tough on cutting some of the increase we´d hoped for in next year´s budget: what are we gonna do bout dat? Well Sir, we at INS have already taken action to show the public how painful those cuts will be. We´ve already released more than 2,000 illegal immigrants we´d held in our detention centers.(Snip)...cut the ammunition provided to front line troops. When those desert outposts run out of ammo, and are overrun by fanatical Arabs, the ignorant public will get the damn message. Look how excited they became over just that Benghazi thing.
Finally after several years of the intrigue associated with the biggest leak of government classified documents to the WikiLeaks website, the perpetrator, Pvt. Bradley Manning, has admitted guilt to lesser counts of the charges against him. (Snip)We have another high profile case involving a military man, Maj. Nadal Hasan, who shot and killed 13 people and wounded 30 others at Fort Hood, Texas. This happened on Nov. 5, 2009, a full 40 months ago. Our government, by the way, does not call it an act of terrorism, but rather defines it as workplace violence, even after there is proof
A Republican strategist is reminding his party that President Reagan is dead. Ford O´Connell, who worked on Sen. John McCain´s (R-Ariz.) 2008 presidential campaign, says if Republicans want to win the White House in 2016, they need to break free of the "obsessive Reagan disorder." Rule #1 of the political analyst´s newly released book, "Hail Mary: The 10-Step Playbook for Republican Recovery," is: "Ronald Reagan is dead. Accept it." Such a sentiment is sure to be tough to digest for a party insistent on using the 40th president´s legacy as a GOP litmus test to prove conservative credentials. "The Reagan fixation is a drag
Jeffrey P. Bezos has never been known for thinking small. And in an interview aired Sunday on CBS´s "60 Minutes," he outlined his latest plan for revolutionizing the retail industry: using drones to deliver packages in as little as 30 minutes. Declaring himself an "optimist," the Amazon.com founder and chief executive predicted the technology could be brought to market in as little as five years. This is more than a theoretical idea. Bezos showed CBS´s Charlie Rose a working prototype of an eight-rotor helicopter drone called an "octocopter." Emblazoned with "Amazon Prime Air," the flying robot has a claw at
Rep. Jim McDermott (D-Wash.) said on MSNBC’s “PoliticsNation” Wednesday that when Jesus fed five thousand people with five loaves of bread and two fish, “he didn’t charge food stamps.” “When Jesus had those five loaves and two fishes, he didn´t charge food stamps. He didn´t ask anybody how much money they had. He fed them because they were hungry, and that´s really where we ought to be,” McDermott said in response to Republican critics of the SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program). In September, the House approved a plan by Republicans to cut $39 billion in food stamps over the next
MIDDLETOWN, Del.- Remembering the plot of a short story is no longer good enough in teacher Amy Lawson´s fifth-grade classroom. Today´s students are being asked to think more critically. For example, what might a character say in an email to a friend? "It´s hard. But you can handle this," Lawson tells them. Welcome to a classroom using the Common Core State Standards, one of the most politicized and misunderstood changes in education for students and their teachers in kindergarten through high school. In 45 states and the District of Columbia, Lawson and and other teachers are starting to use the standards
An education official at a Texas high school is under fire after telling some female students they have been dressing like ‘hoes.’ According to KRIV Fox 26, School Support Officer Dr. Tameca Richardson made the remark to female students at Jack Yates High School in Houston during an assembly on campus. A spokesperson for the Houston Independent School District confirmed the language used by Richardson, the station reported. Some parents expressed anger over Richardson’s terminology, saying the Ph.D.-level educator should have used language that was less offensive. "That was out of line and she should be disciplined for that,"
Gov. Chris Christie’s “bizarre behavior’’ in refusing to say he’ll support a possible GOP challenger to Gov. Cuomo next year could derail his chances to become president, state and national GOP insiders have told The Post. “Christie already has a problem with many Republicans refusing to forgive him because of his embrace of [President] Obama and his socially liberal policies,’’ said a nationally prominent GOP operative. “But this bizarre behavior in suggesting he won’t help a Republican defeat a Democratic governor, and a Cuomo no less, could finish off his chances of becoming his party’s nominee for president in 2016,’’ the
In the US we are used to abortion advocates claiming that the risk of elective abortion is relatively trivial, and major medical organizations denying any link between abortion and breast cancer. Now a powerful new study from China published last week by Yubei Huang and colleagues suggests otherwise. The article, a meta-analysis pooling 36 studies from 14 provinces in China, showed that abortion increased the risk of breast cancer by 44% with one abortion, and 76% and 89% with two and three abortions. This new article is another example of the recent excellent scholarship on abortion in peer-reviewed journals coming out
Senior officials in the White House have said that Israel Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu “is desperate and weak,” in reaction to Netanyahu´s remonstrations against the deal struck with Iran over its nuclear weapons program. Israeli television Channel 10 quoted the officials as saying “His pronouncements show a lack of self-confidence,” in an unusually harsh personal attack on Netanyahu. “We are not perturbed by his vocal opposition.”
A push by activists to ease the 30-year-old blanket ban on blood donations from gay and bisexual men faces a key test this week as a federal panel hears results of the latest research. The findings will be released amid growing pressure from politicians and advocates, including college students, to change the policy. Critics say the ban is a hangover from the early, fear-filled days of AIDS, stigmatizing gay men and ignoring advances in treatment and detection in the decades since. Supporters of the policy say politics, not science, is driving the proposed change, which would heighten the risk of
President Obama completed an ambitious fundraising schedule for Democrats in November, but many of the congressional candidates he is trying to help are finding their election prospects next year imperiled by the president’s faulty health care law. Several polls in the past week have shown congressional Republicans pulling even or slightly ahead of Democrats in generic balloting for the midterm elections, a swing of at least 10 percentage points in less than a month. Pollsters attribute the seismic shift to the series of glaring flaws in Obamacare, most of which came to the public’s attention after the program’s rollout Oct.
Former Obama advisor David Plouffe appeared on This Week With George Stephanopoulos Sunday morning and predicted that President Barack Obama’s approval rating would rise over the next few months, following the increasing functionality of the Affordable Care Act. “This has been a tough task,” Plouffe said. “It’s not just health care. The shutdown affected everybody’s confidence in government. But let’s fast-forward to the State of the Union and the months after that. Health care working better, a lot of people signing up. The economy continuing to strengthen. Hopefully no Washington shutdowns.
So the troubled site apparently now works 90 percent of the time. That should be good news for Obama—but the question is whether Obamacare will get the mass enrollment it needs. HealthCare.gov finally works. Now people just need to use it. The error-plagued website, which was supposed to be the portal for Americans seeking to buy health insurance through the exchanges set up by the Affordable Care Act, is finally approaching basic functionality two months after it went online. In a report released Sunday, the Department of Health and Human Services breathlessly announced that the website now functions more than 90 percent of
