Voting power.

Just five days to go before America elects their new president. These are desperate times for folks who want power, and believe me; they will do everything possible to get it.

 "A controversial Virginia marketing and polling firm appears to have used a legal loophole to bombard scores of Americans with unsolicited text messages berating President Barack Obama less than a week before Election Day. More than a dozen different messages landed on the screens of phone users late on Tuesday, originating from mysterious websites instead of phone numbers. They attacked Obama and Democrats on a variety of issues such as abortion, foreign policy, same-sex marriage and taxation.

The domain names of those websites had been registered with through a firm that masks original owners.

On Wednesday, Reuters compiled a list of at least nine websites gathered from reporters who received the political text messages. A review of websites that track domain name registrations revealed that three of the nine websites that sent the messages were registered by Jason Flanary. Those sites had been suspended for spam and abuse.

An email for Jason Flanary indicated he works for ccAdvertising, a division of Inc. Neither Flanary or the firm returned requests for comment.
CcAdvertising's website says: "All ccAdvertising services are compliant with all Do Not Call regulations and exceptions." [More]

Wow!  Honestly, I have to give it to these guys; they sure know how to work the system. I know that the dems say that they have a great ground game in  place, but how can they compete with guys like this? (Did you know that one of Mitt's sons owns a stake in some of our voting machines?) I think that we have moved way beyond just knocking on doors and getting folks out to vote in America. It is game on out here, folks.

Finally, in keeping with the they will do anything to win, theme, it seems that there has been some shenanigans going on down in Florida.

"Missing absentee ballots and long lines for early voting sites have left many South Floridians unable to participate in this year’s elections.

Voters have yet to receive absentee ballots from Broward County’s elections office, requested weeks prior. Early voting lines in Miami-Dade have wait times ranging up to six hours. In Aventura, officers turned away voters who couldn’t locate parking spots. This prompted a county commissioner to organize a shuttle from the distant lots to the polls.

Over in Miami Gardens, former Florida governor, Charlie Crist, made an appearance, asking Governor Rick Scott to extend early voting hours for all the state’s counties. But Scott, who authorized a law limiting voting days to 8 from 14 last year, is unlikely to listen. Scott also cut early voting the Sunday before Election Day. Seeing as how that day has traditionally been when African-Americans churchgoers drive to the polls in droves, many viewed the law as a way to disenfranchise blacks from voting." [Source]

And it's not even November 6th yet.

The numbers of early voters has to bode well for B. The wife and I will drop some ballots tomorrow.
A few years ago we had a problem with only a few machines in a large precinct. I had to call our congressman because how are you going to have the same number of machines for thousands of people as you do downstate in tiny villages? If that's not suppression I don't know what is. Oh well, we'll see how it goes but I'll have our US senator and congressman's numbers on speed dial. This election is too important for games.

Black folks will... or... would get out in droves just like they did in 2008.... if there was something substantive to support from this president.

The old HOPE , and CHANGE has been replaced with...

"Dont You see how Racist and EVIL the Republicans are?? "

Hes pretty much got this thing wrapped up ,with virtually nothing, but

"Its all Bushes fault, and I had a BIG PROBLEM to fix so I NEED 4 more years"

but what does he plan for the future?

his first order of business is bending over as FAR as he can for Republicans...

How many more slaps in the face do you need Field???

Whoever wins this election, half the country is going to be devastated next Wednesday morning. If anyone thinks that their guy winning is going to make everything right, they are sadly deluded.

The bigger issue is how can two such divergent views live in one house? I don't want to live in a country where the government stays in power by promising entitlements it cannot ultimately deliver, where the labor of the productive is redistributed to the idle, where basic freedoms are surrendered for the security of a poorer future, and where half the country doesn't care that the President sacrificed the life of an embassy staff for fear that his foreign policy would be criticized.

I'm sure you don't want to live in a country where the "rich" have their taxes "cut", where some people don't get preferential treatment and everyone is treated the same under the law, where entitlements are reformed to reduce dependency and are structured so that can actually be counted on, and people's livelihoods take precedence over the fears of Al Gore.

It may be time to go our separate ways. The only question is, who gets Mississippi?

Whitey's Conspiracy said...

Ryan is signaling that he knows that Romney's going to lose and he intends to lend on his feet.

"Publicly, Ryan and his closest allies maintain that momentum is behind the Romney-Ryan ticket. They aren't entertaining any talk about anything different from Ryan settling into the vice president's residence in January. Ryan already has met once with Mike Leavitt, the former health and human services secretary who is building a government-in-waiting for Romney, Ryan advisers said.

But Ryan's biggest boosters realize he probably can write his own ticket, win or lose on Nov. 6.

These Ryan allies spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss private proposals they were preparing for him. They insist Ryan is not worried about anything beyond the election and is not planning anything except being a governing partner to Romney.

They say that if he fails, Ryan's instincts will be to return to the House — he is running for re-election to his House seat at the same time he's Romney's running mate — and resume his role as Budget Committee chairman. "

Yup, Rmoney's still flying the plane, but Ryan's standing in the open door wearing a parachute, and intends to leave a record of it.

Interesting. I got anti-Romney text messages to my cell phone and
the same to my Twitter account, which I consider harassment.

I have yet to find someone in my circle who voted for Obama who is going to vote for him again. The few that are really anti-Romney just aren't going to vote. They may not like Romney, but they sure as heck aren't going to help O.

You do, they are voting for your guy, so you get to keep 'em.

In fact you can have all the red states, good luck with that.

Now we see New Yorkers dumpster diving, Mayor Bloomberg trying desperately to shuttle food and water into the projects and Democrats looking for anyone else to blame. Heck.. the mayor went so far as to tack on a charge against global warming – as if that was why citizens in his city were struggling. Wasn’t he the one that decided to only evacuate a small portion of the city?

The hypocrisy is thick as we watch Democratic leaders attack the Red Cross for this storm after having laid the blame on President Bush for the last. When is the blame to be placed on the individuals who clearly made the poor choices to both stay in the path of the storm and to have no provisions ready when it came?

Or the other Democrats who made it their mission to go out of their way to distribute the message that no one could possibly need canned food and all the other necessities and let "the organization handle it"

Right Whitey?

Whitey - It appears that you are very desperate, very. Ryan was a rising star before being nominated to be the next V.P. Why? Because he is competent and capable.

Intelligent people talk about different things, they don't just say oh let the Red Cross handle it and then watch people starve because they were wrong.

You do realize there are people who will remember all the tripe you spout later on?

Oh and from the NY times

Mark Landler:
"Obama crowd counts today: 2,600 in Green Bay; 4,500 in Las Vegas. Not impressive for the last week of a campaign.

And how many of those in the crowds were forced/payed SEIU Union?

Let's see how Romney's event turns out tonight - they expect a blowout as all his other rallies have been recently.

Flood of crime
Wave of Sandy muggers and looters


November 2, 2012

Hurricane Sandy has dredged up all of the bottom-feeders.

Since the devastating storm walloped the Big Apple beginning Monday night, the hardest-hit areas have been plagued with burglaries, street muggings and a crime wave that has residents and business owners living in fear, law-enforcement sources said.

Cops on the blacked-out Lower East Side are even warning residents not to use flashlight apps on their smartphones because of all the thieves lurking about.

“Don’t flash your telephone, there’s been a lot of muggings,” said an officer near East Houston and Ludlow streets.

Law-enforcement sources told The Post that people in lower Manhattan were getting mugged at ATMs while they were getting emergency cash right as the storm hit.

Unsuspecting residents are getting burglarized in the aftermath of the storm when they’re out for food and supplies.

“Somebody hiding in the dark of the hallway waits for them to leave and kicks in the door and burgles the place,” one source said. “They know that people will have cash on hand in their apartments.”

Reports of burglaries are expected to spike in downtown neighborhoods when displaced residents return in the coming days.

“Many people left their apartments after the storm hit and went to stay with friends and family uptown or somewhere else,” one police source said. “After they come, some of them are going to find their apartments burglarized.”

Eighteen thieves were collared for breaking into a Key Food in Coney Island, cops said.

An arraignment judge in Queens Criminal Court yesterday blasted 15 alleged store looters in the Rockaways — among the areas hardest hit by Sandy.

“These allegations are beyond the scope of what you think a human being would do after what we’ve suffered these last couple of days,” said Justice Stephanie Zaro.

Zaro set high bail for each defendant, even those who were first-time offenders. The amounts ranged from $5,000 to $100,000.

In Brooklyn Criminal Court, an assistant district attorney requested bail of more then $100,000 when a judge arraigned eight alleged looters.

In Queens, twin brothers were arraigned yesterday for allegedly stealing a U-Haul truck and breaking into a closed motorcycle shop.

Anthony and Sean Martin, 24, allegedly rammed their stolen truck through the gates of New York Motorcycle at 222-02 Jamaica Ave. but high-tailed out empty-handed.

They took off, leaving the U-Haul behind, and were caught an hour later — pulled over for allegedly failing to signal.

Frustrated Negro said...

Just so long as the Austerity , and Warmongering come from a democrat right??

Makes you feel batter I guess...

That is possibly my biggest problem with supporters like you.

You can only see Obama as some shining crowning symbol of a civil rights struggle 40 years old. Nothing else is expected of him but except to look presidential while seemingly battling the inherent racism coming from the right wing.

When you are confronted with well known FACTS about him throwing blacks, and the middle class under the bus...

Here comes the Evil Racist Republicans made me do it...cop out.

Its being used as a stop gap from real productive criticism.

Racism didn't cause him to completely abandon Single Payer.

Racism didnt force him to hire Geithner ,and Bernake

Racism didnt force him to re-sign the Patriot Act , NDAA , or develop a drone kill list.

Racism didnt force him to allow the big 5 banks to write their own settlement for billions of dollars of financial damage to the housing market.

The list just goes on, and on, and, on but

after Nov 6th his FIRST order of business will be
"Washing John Boehners car ...or walking Mitch Mcconnel's dog to reach another "Satan Sandwich" deal with Republicans

Your name should be right over there on the side with the rest of the House Negros --------}}}}}}

Hobama has failed!!!!!!!!

Hope trumps HAARP!!!

Go Mitt!!!!!

Because he had so much confidence, he thought whatever he did would work. He thought he had "a gift," as he is said to have told Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid. He thought he had a special ability to sway the American people, or so he suggested to House Speaker John Boehner and Majority Leader Eric Cantor.

But whenever he went over the the heads of the media and Congress and went to the people, in prime-time addresses, it didn't really work. He did not have a magical ability to sway. And—oddly—he didn't seem to notice.

It is one thing to think you're Lebron. Its another thing to keep missing the basket and losing games and still think you're Lebron.

And that really was the problem: He had the confidence without the full capability. And he gathered around him friends and associates who adored him, who were themselves talented but maybe not quite big enough for the game they were in. They understood the Democratic Party, its facts and assumptions. But they weren't America-sized. They didn't get the country so well.

Whatever happens, Mr. Obama will not own the room again as once he did. If he wins, we will see a different presidency—even more stasis, and political struggle—but not a different president.

"they will do anything to win"

Like create a system for taking illegal campaign contributions from foreign donors.

I guess it's easy to be a democrat as long as you're cool with whoring out your integrity for some filthy piece of shit like Brakabama. The question is what do you think you get in return? He doesn't give a shit about you. He doesn't even know you exist, yet you'll debase yourself for his worthless ass. He's the right color I guess. Once you've already thrown away integrity, what else matters?

Just back from my visit to Tklanistan where Rmoney is +5 in the national polls, and set to win not just all of the battlegrounds but deep blue states like Oregon, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Minnesota, and Wisconsin and rack up an electoral landslide of 350+. It was a place full of white "silent generation" denizens as happy as I've seen them since Katrina drowned black New Orleans and W ignored it.

Yeah, I was undercover. The grey flattop and pale skin lets me blend in like I belong there; I don't get a second look. I can't wait to see them in 5 days.

I see in Kingnut's world all of the virtue rests with his side while all the vice would reside in mine. Sorry kid but there's just as many lazy wefare creeps in red states as there are in blue. Wonder which side would get the Fortune 500 companies in this hypothetical division? I think the funniest part is that he doesn't think there aren't preferences in conservoworld but there exists a structure where the wealthy have all the advantages that benefit them and their families for decades. Then again why would anyone be surprised that a conservative wouldn't see obvious hypocrisy, that's their strong suit.

Hey Beckel - Exactly who took what from Whom?

What was that you and Andrea Mitchell said about giving money to the Red Cross over donations of necessities?

You will never understand why Liberals screw everything up - but we do, you don't have any common sense - it's all pure emotion and hatred.

Oh and you get a poster who says one thing - for all we know it was probably you, yet your entire and I do mean entire schtick is racism (you are anti white which is sick in of itself) and you call Blacks worse things by your thoughts. You think they are incompetent children that couldn't do anything without you helping, I would rather you call me any name in the book than "Hey Boy I am here to show you the way".

With about 100 hours until the first polling places start closing on the East Coast, and the tklanners savoring their "inevitable landslide," the race remains extremely stable, with all consolidated polls showing the same statistical tie in national popular vote that they've been showing since the second debate. State polling too remains extremely stable with Obama holding the "light-blue-tossups" of Ohio, Nevada, New Mexico, and New Hampshire by solid single digits, and Iowa, Colorado and Virginia by the same 2% that Romney holds the pink tossups Florida and North Carolina. Every major betting line and oddsmaker has it between 3/1-4/1 in Obama's favor.

This isn't just an election; it's our scopes trial, and our witch burning too. It's math vs. myth, facts vs. fantasy, science vs. superstition. I'm expecting trouble, because in the tribal zones of tbagistan, where myth, fantasy & superstition proudly rule, they're expecting such a completely different result that they'll never accept as legitimate the result that objective reality (you know, math & science) tells us that we're all but certain to see. It's just the kind of shock that shakes all of the nuts loose of their tree.
