Of course, the source will be attacked, so I augmented with a number of corroborating links:"32,229." -- Number of reported UFO sightings, 2000-2007
"352." -- Number of deaths caused by lightning, 2000-2007
"9." -- Number of possible occurrences of voter impersonation, 2000-2009
It was found that a total of 374 struck-by-lightning deaths had occurred
during 1995–2000 (an average annualized rate of 0.23 deaths per million persons).
In the United States, it is the #2 weather killer (second only to floods). In the US, between 9% and 10% of those struck die, for an average of 40 to 50 deaths per year (28 in 2008).
Whereas a typical number of reports submitted per month to NUFORC over the last 17 years has been 250-350, during June we received 974, and we have received 1,052 during July.
Each year, on average there are approximately 5000 UFO sightings reported to the National UFO Reporting Center [NUFORC].
The Voter ID laws are a response to a problem that doesn't really exist. They are a partisan political attempt at voter suppression.Voter Impersonation:
George W. Bush's Justice Department spent years ferreting out voter fraud and managed to prosecute not one voter for impersonating another.
There is no documented wave or trend of individuals voting multiple times, voting as someone else, or voting despite knowing that they are ineligible. Indeed, evidence from the microscopically scrutinized 2004 gubernatorial election in Washington State actually reveals just the opposite: though voter fraud does happen, it happens approximately 0.0009% of the time. The similarly closely-analyzed 2004 election in Ohio revealed a voter fraud rate of 0.00004%
