I'm gonna take a vid of that beautiful being trying to get votes at the polls. Last time around it was a guy pushing GOP. I politely reminded him campaigning at the polls was a serious crime. He claimed he wasnt. If its the same guy this year, I may shoot him. If its a guy pushing the donkey, he gets one polite reminder as well.

They tried to wrap the line around itself like a snake. Obvoiusly that didnt work . A cop came by and straight end everyone out. No one argued. Hes 7 feet tall and did not appear to be in the mood for shenanigans.

Aint nobody intimidating around here. Am seeing loads of black that are normally never seen in manassas. They only come out in groups on voting day. And apparently theres a ton more legal citizens of hispanic descent than the census previously thought.either that or they are scamming. But with all the cops around I doubt it. In fact theres way more cops here today thab I've ever seen on voting day. Possible to deter bullshit.

FFS, can't you people read?

A partial list of precincts targeted by a Pittsburgh Tea Party group working on behalf of the Republican Party shows that nearly 80 percent of the voters in those precincts are African-American, compared to 13 percent countywide, according to civil rights and union groups who on Monday called on the U.S. Department of Justice to investigate.
The list was obtained by an independent community organizer who attended one of the poll watcher-training sessions and was able to jot down information about 59 of the 111 precincts that the group was asking people to sign up for, according to Berner.

Taking way too damn long. EVERYBODY is having everything explained to them. No one read up on the election before arriving.

We told all the minorities to just stay home because Obama had it in the bag. No sense getting all cold and having to stand in line. For those that seemed unconvinced, we told them vans would be coming around on Wednesday to take them to the polls.

This election it's the hispanics and the blacks we're helping out and they vowed that in the next election they'd do the same for us white folk - the new minorities.

We go the extra mile to help our neighbors here.

DONE!

Got my little sticker.

Am still amazed it took folks so long to vote. I had to write in Libertarians for all the ballots and it still went by in about 60 seconds. Am also peeved only one beautiful being ran for mayor.

Obviously you didn't look at his links to back up the claim that Obama had a justice department in 2008.

I'm sure he meant it as a joke because it's a ridiculous assertion if he didn't.
The two NBP who were accused of voter intimidation had an active case against them in 2008. When Obama became president he gets to replace the attorney general. The DoJ under the obama administration dismissed the civil lawsuit against the NBPP. There is much more detail to the story... but really stop nitpicking and use your brain.

filled out my ballot...now need to find somewhere to drop it off so I can get my freedom sticker.

lol--I voted for some whacko ultra socialist beanie-wearing retired anthropology professor for state legislature b/c his bio sounded like the rantings of an acid-head.

this state is so fucked, might as well see it burn.

:awe:
