Meanwhile, in other news...

Nov. 6 — FLORIDA — Voting machine problems; 12,310 ‘wrong-day’ robocalls.

At least two Hillsborough County polls reported vote-machine problems, The "Tampa Tribune" reported. Also, officials acknowledged the higher number of Pinellas County voters who got a robo-call Tuesday by election officials mistakenly telling them the vote was Wednesday. Another 28,300 calls with the correct date were made Monday. The mistake came from a vendor, said the county elections supervisor. Vote-scanning problems also occurred in the South Florida communities of Miami Springs, Pembroke Pines and Plantation, the "Miami Herald" reported.

My post was deleted because I've posted about rockchalk's plagiarism... two, maybe three times? Last year, barrypenders/berrypenders/FalseHopeNoChange was kicked off once for regularly stealing material from a web site known as Stratfor.com , a kind of 7-Eleven for foreign affairs.

Sorry, but stuff like that stands out like a sore thumb. We all have our own "voice" to our writing, and when you drop in someone else's writing under your name, it stands out. Badly.

I call 'em like I see 'em.

The New Black Panthers. That's a good one. Kind of like those cartoony Latino and Asian gangs that started popping up on the West Coast in the 90's. MSG-13! Ooooh, scary!

Machine turns vote for Obama into one for Romney

A Pennsylvania electronic voting machine was taken out of service after being captured on video changing a vote for President Obama into one for Mitt Romney, NBC News has confirmed. Republicans have also said machines have turned Romney votes into Obama ones.

Court appointed Republican poll inspectors are being forcibly removed from voting stations in some Philadelphia wards and replaced by Democratic inspectors and even members of the Black Panthers.

Democrats have to cheat to win. Talk about voter suppression.

So what are we voting for again? 4 more years of tyranny, corruption, and who was the best / worst imbecilic liar?

If I were to give a 'thumbs up' to the same regular poster on every one of his/her comments, would that be voting or stalking?

"My side".

Definitely part of the problem. Also, there is no such thing as Obamacare and there is no Tea Party.

"My side will lose in KS. But, KS only has 7 votes so whatever....."

What an idiot. I bet there are more than 7 people in the state of Kansas.

Voted, had to show my ID even though I've known the lady behind the table since I was born. Ya know what - didn't bother me a bit! I, like many posters above, will be glad when this is over. I don't feel too optimistic about a final result in less than a couple of weeks, though.

Well, I voted. And speaking of rocks, guess who was there standing in line? Indyan Lovestone! Evidently he finally got his photo ID. I had not seen him since he disappeared. He begged me to let him come back. Now I don't know what to do. I already have another friend, but I'm still legally hitched to Indyan and Kansas doesn't have any provisions to get unhitched. Good thing I voted for Romney like Andi recommended. Maybe polygamy will be legalized and we will all three be allowed to get hitched.

Actually six... but who's counting.

Maybe that's why his side always loses. :Þ~

There are three kinds of people in this world. Those that can count and those that can't.

certainly going to vote this afternoon, me and the mrs.

happy to vote for love of country.

romney wasn't my first or even fourth choice among the republican candidates, but he's worlds better than obama.

plea

please vote out obama, to get out obamacare, so that I can live a long life. yes, I am serious. obamacare truly threatens the lives of people who need quick access to specialists at times necessary to save our lives. I've needed quick access to specialists four times in my life so far. thank God they were there.

Voted a couple of hours ago. My polling place was arranged with voters on the east side of Iowa checking in on the west side of the room with the west siders on the east. No problem there, just thought it was amusing. And the workers kept calling out "Blue' or 'Orange.' Haven't figured out those references yet. Was gonna ask, but folks were a bit preoccupied.

Looked like a pretty good turnout!

My voting place was swamped. Look like a football game parking lot. I am just glad it is over. My side will lose in KS. But, KS only has 7 votes so whatever.....

Early voting only exists for the soul purpose of Florida to be stupid. Cause they need extra ways to mess it up.

"How is that? Sounds good, just curious" CW

Silenced is the wrong word. And actually, it will increase for the next few days, then it will peter out to just (can't call names) like Merrill and Bozo and RockChalk1977 to do their thing and be ignored.

Didn't vote for a president-they're both politicians-but did vote for the 'locals'. I wish Pat Paulson were still alive so I could vote Stag Party (younger people, reference to the Smothers Brothers.)

All the idiocy of the extreme left and extreme right will be silenced for awhile. T_O_B How is that? Sounds good, just curious. I voted about 7:30AM. Wrote in Spacehog

I have never had to wait more than two minutes to vote. This morning I waited 45 minutes. Which was fine. Shot the breeze with some neighbors and took advantage of my two hour allowance for voting and showed up to work a bit late to find my boss had bought donuts for everyone. Today is going to be a good day. All the idiocy of the extreme left and extreme right will be silenced for awhile.

I will be voting against obamacare today. If we have to suffer 4 years of Mormonism to be rid of it, that's the price we pay. Socialism is a bigger enemy than Mormonism can possibly be.

slitter (urban dictionary)
