Go Figure

I must apologize for not posting in such a long time, with no explanation. All I can offer as an excuse is: Old. Tired. Work. Aching bones. Tooth pain. Back pain. Piss-poor excuses, all. Sometimes I am just braindead for, apparently, weeks at a time. Except, obviously, for a heated exchange, as may be witnessed in my previous post. But aside from that, I've been remiss in posting. So, back in the saddle I go with a subject I care about a lot.

In an article it is reported: Watchdog Group Questions 2004 Fla. Vote. Before any wingnuts howl about a "Gore won" post, note the article does not claim a win for any candidate. It only says there is a liklihood that the results of the election were not accurate, and there is no way to know who actually won. Maybe Bush. Maybe Gore. But one thing is certain: when the voting system is as unreliable as this, the voters abolutely lose.

I walked into a polling place one time and was met at the door by an acquaintance who was volunteering. He had the nerve to actually tell me how he thought I should vote, then followed up with the question of HOW I was going to vote. Its hard to politely say "none of your business" and resist the urge to report him to some kind of oversight committee. I don't know what the solution to voting irregularities is, but we certainly need some.
