Washington State Uses Suspect Voting Machinery

Image
 According to the Washington State Secretary of State's website, Washington uses Hart InterCivic, a controversial election machinery company that is noted in the article further below: it is not sure at this time whether the Sherril Huff-run King County Elections Department uses Hart along with the also controversial Diebold/Premier/Dominion machinery that we are sure they use.Huff made the unwise decision to make a huge purchase of election equipment from Diebold/Premier several years ago.  Over the years, King County has developed a reputation for being one of the most incompetent and controversial election departments in the United States, and even news journalist and host Bill O'Reilly is aware of this department as he implied there was election corruption in King County a few years ago.  Please, sign Mark Greene's petititon for King County Director of Elections if you see it, and donate money to help put Mark in the director's office (2015 election) or for Washi…

Mitt

There's something a little unseemly, to put it nicely, about someone who has practically no core principles, but lusts for power so much.  You get the feeling that this guy, Mitt Romney, has been thinking about being president since the first grade, but since then has not had a single overriding reason for this goal besides wanting to satisfy his enormous ego.  Very cynical and nasty, too: he says he likes to fire people and promises that there will be no more "free stuff" from Uncle Sam if he gets his way, presumably none for those poor devils that aren't smart or slick enough to live off of money like him, and this coming from someone who had the benefit of significant money (free stuff) being handed to him early in his adult life just because he happened to be the son of a powerful and rich father.  For all his alleged devotion to religion, somehow he skipped those Biblical references about being overawed by money. The Salt Lake City Tribune editorialized, regardi…

Rocky

I voted for Rocky Anderson of Utah  (a former mayor of Salt Lake City) for President of the United States.  He has condemned Obama's signing of a defense authorization bill that authorizes the arrest of U.S. citizens without due process, which is tyrannical and a completely unconstitutional "law" which turns the Bill of Rights up side down, and Anderson has said that torturers should be prosecuted.

Mark is probably the only politician in Washington that had the temerity to keep the 2004 election shenanigans in the news as late as 2012 and to call out names. Help us solve the mystery of "The Other Curious Election of 2004" (WA 9th Con…

Bush II Redux

All is not well in America, and while Russia throws female protestors who don't like Putin from jail to the gulag this week, and Ukraine torments those who dare to be in the political opposition, the United States, with the consent of the corrupt Congress, steals or reads mail, reads e-mail and otherwise invades the privacy of those who have done nothing more than use First Amendment rights to dissent against the government, among worst offences that the U.S. commits against innocent people.  The so-called liberal Obama administration is nothing but Bush II Redux, but they're a little more skillful in the public relations realm that makes people think there has been change for the better.  A lot less bombast and bluster, but still changing nothing from the Bush II era except being worst in some areas.  Of course, the charlatan, Mitt Romney, would be worst than Bush or Obama.  Authoritarians still hold the reins of power in America.

Nuclear Policy is Stupid

There have been flashbacks on the news recently about how close humanity has come to suicidal self-destruction via nuclear bombs, namely the Cuban Missile Crisis during the John Kennedy presidency, and the Russian naval officer that refused to launch a nuclear attack on the U.S., during the Ronald Reagan presidency, because of an alarm that turned out to be faulty.  Now, a generation since the false alarm, U.S. nuclear policy is entirely focused on Iran not getting the bomb instead of more broadly pressuring all the nuclear outliers (Israel, Pakistan, India and North Korea) into dismantling their nuclear weapons.  These are the countries that have nuclear bombs, but are not present signatories to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT).  Not that trying to stop Iran from getting the bomb is not good, but the anti-nuke policy should be broadened beyond Iran.  Perversely, it seems that if a country becomes a nuclear outlier, with the exception of North Korea, then suddenly you are we…
