BE READY FOR TROUBLE ELECTION DAY

Apparently nobody’s doing much about it. Or, some are doing too much of the wrong things about it!

What should you do if there’s a “voting” machine problem…or a problem with polling-place personnel or procedures…or they don’t provide help in cases of disability or non-English-speaking…or they try to keep you from voting at the polling place…or they move your polling place without notice…or they try to keep you away from the polling place…or they count the votes funny…or the “official counts” don’t jive with exit polls…or there are shenanigans at the County Election Board…or mainstream media shenanigans…etc.?

Expect trouble. Take a cellular phone if you can. Speak loudly, make a fuss, tell others what’s going on, ask if anyone present – even a normal civilian in line – can help, call relatives, call the election board downtown, call the media (but don’t bother with Fox TV unless they’re all you’ve got!), call a lawyer, go online and tell your story, anything else you can think of.

If they arrest you, do not resist arrest or assault the police officer – these are crimes and do not help your case or our cause…even if they assault you. Go with them politely and proudly, and tell everyone you see what’s going on, even in jail. Remember, it’s an honor to undergo inconvenience for what’s right! DO, HOWEVER, TELL THEM RIGHT UP FRONT, LOUDLY, WITH WITNESSES AROUND, IF YOU’RE ON MEDICATION YOU CAN’T DO WITHOUT IN JAIL, OR IF YOU’RE ON A SPECIAL DIET.

OTHERWISE, DO NOT LEAVE, DO NOT TAKE ELECTION ABUSE AND THEFT AND CORRUPTION LYING DOWN!

WHEN YOU STAND UP FOR YOURSELF, YOU’RE STANDING UP FOR ALL OF US…YOU’RE STANDING UP FOR AMERICA…YOU’RE STANDING UP FOR DEMOCRACY…YOU’RE STANDING UP FOR FREEDOM!

TAXPAYER-SUBSIDIZED REPUBLICAN CAMPAIGNING

Bush just used his “weekly radio address” as a not-thinly-veiled-at-all GOP campaign ad, free of charge on the radio station I was listening to. Completely inappropriate. Not to mention full of lies. But that goes without saying.

ELECTION THEFT MAY BE IN THE WORKS

We’re poised to retake not only the House, but also the Senate now. Remember the “mysterious Republican turnaround” in the Georgia U.S. Senate race in ’02??? Watch the pre-results exit polls…unless they’ve bought them too this time, to cover their tracks.

Remember, the Senate is especially important because without a Senate trial and conviction, an impeached president and vice-president remain in office.

And – aha! – sneaky Diebold ‘fixed’ machines in Maryland. I’m sure they did.

And Rove tells NPR it’s in the bag, just like Jeb told W. in ’00.

DRUG WAR IMMORAL? CRIMINAL? UNJUST? POLITICAL? CORRUPT? TOO EXPENSIVE? NONSENSICAL? EXCESSIVE?

I wasn’t sure till I read this. (No thanks to Her Majesty’s Canadian border guards, I’m sure!!!) Now, marijuana has numerous bad health effects – some directly attributable to its relegation to the illegal economy – and some rumored good ones. But it’s smelly (I’m told). OTOH, alcohol has almost no good health effects (research unfunded by the Booze Marketing Council or some such) not shared by grape juice…and plenty of bad health AND WORSE SOCIETAL effects, but is perfectly legal, if regulated and taxed to the hilt. Makes me wonder.

I started down this road when I was researching poppy seed tea for my IBS, and wondered if anything made by God should be outlawed in and of itself. After all, poppies are beautiful flowers (according to pictures I’ve seen on the internet)! But I’ve read it is too easy to go from poppies to heroin, whose medicinal value may have been commonly believed in a century ago, but has probably been long since outstripped by pharmaceuticalized extracts (like Paregoric, which helps my IBS alot!!!), leaving only its nasty/lethal abuse and addiction problems.

From what I understand, marijuana is less harmful than alcohol, maybe even than tobacco. And we do spend an awful lot of money and energy “fighting” it at every level of government. An awful lot. And not enough researching and possibly developing its potential good effects. Or at least getting rid of the nasty smell (I’m told)!!!

Where does the Common Good lie here?

(PS: You may have heard of Mrs. Nall more recently – or more specifically, her ta-ta’s and/or underwear habits – because she’s now the Libertarian Party candidate for governor of Alabama. A regular Erin Brockovich! I have some problems with her platform, but I like her spirit!)

(PPS: I do not endorse the illegal possession or use of any controlled substance.)

CANADA TO MOVE FROM BUSH-LITE TO BUSH-HEAVY?

For now the country is stuck with “Conservative” Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s minority government. Would “Liberal” leadership frontrunner Michael Ignatieff (yes, he’s Canadian…supposedly) actually be worse?!! Some are saying Harper is starting to show true Tory ‘colours’ after years seeming like a U.S. Repuglican. Remember, the Liberals are traditionally Canada’s big business party, because “liberal” there traditionally means what “conservative” here does…even if they’re forced to deceptively “campaign from the left” or actually throw us the people a bone every few years.

TRUTH IN ADVERTISING

A somewhat exaggerated (I hope!), but hilarious, series of video scenes from an allegedly slightly-longer and overpriced DVD. That fact may be a commentary in itself! (WARNING: Adult language.)

PS: Who’s the blonde? She looks familiar.
