Election Stupidity continues

Hey, San Diego still is having fun with their mayoral elections. Law suits are flying and everyone says something is wrong. Even a conspiracy theory has developed.

Here's the facts as I see them:

1. San Diegans cannot read instructions.
2. Fact: The ballot instructions say you must fill in the bubble.
3. San Diegans did not fill in the bubble.
4. Donna Fry (sp?) wants those votes without bubbles filled counted.

Conclusion: San Diegans are not the most intelligent group of people.

This is the last I will say about elections this year. Disregard any previous comments regarding my no comment rule.

Basketball incident

I know you are all waiting for comment on the fight that broke out at the Pacer game last weekend. Here's the quick comment as I will post my true feeling on the website as I think this deserves a little more indepth study. ;-)

First, I think all players should be suspended for the year and Artest should be handed at least a two year suspension. I think that these "roll models", as everyone likes to call sports figures, should have enough common sense to hold back their aggression. Also, they are too young to understand the real world. A message to the players: You make a lot of money playing games. Think about it. You are just grown up children. Get a grip on reality.

Second, I think that John Green, the fan who threw the cup at Artest, should be charged with assault and banned from attending any major sporting events. This includes his son's little league baseball games. This guy is the epitome of what fans have become today. I've been to my share of sporting events and I think the fans have gone way of the edge. All they do is drink beer and harass the players. Hey Idiots! It is only a game. A GAME. Not life or death! A GAME! It does not mean anything. Nothing. Nada. You are so stupid to pay so much to see a bunch of grown men play GAMES and get so mad. Put things into perspective. OH, and get a life, too.

There you have it. Later!

Election: When will the stupidity stop?

I just cannot understand why people are so stupid. Yes, prosecute those who voted twice. And before people get up in arms over this whole damn thing, VOTING WILL NEVER BE PERFECT! So, get over it.

And if you checked in on the really bizarre San Diego, CA mayoral race, seems like a mini presidential election going on there. Must be a city of losers.

Idiot of the Day

So, I hear this on the radio, so I go cruisin' through Yahoo News. I cannot fathom how someone would go to such lengths to make a point. I would never set myself on fire on PURPOSE. Burn hurt. I'll tell you, we are dealling with a whole different breed of people here. Beware.

Just When You Thought This Election Stuff Was Over

It looks like the Democrats cannot believe that their own people turned on them and voted for Bush. I guess some research is still necessary to uncover any possible fraud and make elections more "believeable". Some good points are broght up in this article, but I fear that there will never be an election without fears of fraud or misconduct of some kind.

Since the election, liberal blogs and discussion sites have been raising a ruckus over an analysis of Florida voting results that's been spreading on the internet, which shows President Bush received a much higher number of votes than the number of registered Republicans in many counties."

Gangs = Terrorists?

Here is an interesting subject. Do you think that terrorists are contacting gangs to help facilitate their needs?

I heard this concept come up on a talk show. Since California and Arizona seem to have wide open borders, it seems quite likely that terrorists can come up from Mexico and enter the U.S. "disguised" as Mexican immigrants, legal or illegal. They obtain the necessary Mexican papers and learn the language. Being that gangs operate similarly as mini-terrorist groups, it would be a logical next step for Al Qaeda.

Also, everyone in America is so complacent with the attitude of "it's been 3 years and nothing has happened" that we do not watch our security as closely as we should. Major terrorist plots take many years to develop. As I heard said, "terrorist time is not the same as American time."

Let's hope we are ready!

da Vinci, a roboticist?

I came across this in Wired. What a cool article! Da Vinci is definitely one of the most interesting historical figures. What did da Vinci NOT do?

Crazy Middle East

An AP story on Yahoo. Of course they were dancing. Don't Arabs dance and celebrate after a successful terrorist strike? This guy Erekat must be living in his own little world void of all reality. Then, again, that's what they say of me. This will become a very scarey region of the world, like it's not already.

Yahoo! News - Arafat in a Coma; Doctors Say He's Stable: "Erekat, meanwhile, chided Israel after a group of several dozen Israelis danced and sang in celebration in a Jerusalem street after initial media reports Thursday that Arafat was dead.

'I really hope that they will show some sensitivity and respect' for 'their neighbors' emotions,' Erekat told AP Radio. He called the celebration 'absolutely inappropriate.'"

Election Day Is Here!

Ok folks. Get out there and vote. I really do not care who what when and where you vote. This is a non-partisan site. (I just wanted to say that and hyphenate it because it's fun.)

I voted. Done. I had no problem with the machine, in our case a scanner. Most of the issues I saw while waiting in line were all operator error. Either the person voted filled in too many ovals or used silly check marks. The machine itself ran just fine. I think one person tried to put the thing in the scanner backwards! Oh, is that what those arrows mean?!

The most difficult part of voting today was finding the poll. The signs were small and not very well placed. Other than that, do not let the news media scare you off about how difficult it is to vote! Just do it!

Have fun.
