Washington State ballot hand recount

This is the Raging_Mrs. I feel a sudden urge to blog in the absence of Raging_Dave.

I will start by saying that I have been highly annoyed by the Democrats this WHOLE election.

It started with me sending in my Absentee ballot, unsigned.
OK, not a problem, I was sent an affidavit to sign, so my vote could be counted.
Realistically, I would not have been overly upset if my vote had not been counted because I hadn't followed the instructions. Yes, I signed and sent in the affidavit.

On voting day, I had DEMOCRATS show up at my doorstep,

"to make sure I made it to the polls".
How quaint...

On that Friday, I received a letter from the democratic party advising me that my ballot had been received unsigned, and that I should have received an affidavit to sign, in the mail.
I was not amused.
The very next day, I had a member of the democratic party come to my doorstep, for the same reason as before. He wanted to make sure that I had signed and sent in my affidavit. On the off chance I hadn't, he had one I could sign. The Raging_Mr. pulled me inside before I FULLY gave him a peice of my mind.

Then to find out the Democratic party went to court to get the records of any people who had issues with their ballots.


I am firmly of several opinions on this matter:

1) if anyone is unable to follow the directions on the ballot, unable to make it to the polls, or unable to mail in, or do what is needed to make their vote count, It shouldn't!!!!!

2)If a person needs to be babysat to vote, it doesn't matter enough for their vote to count

3)it was an invasion of my, and many other people privacy to get the records saying there was an issue with our votes


THIS ALL LEADS ME TO THE HAND RECOUNT IN WASHINTON...

After all of the shenanigans to try to win a losing election, and the recount still putting Rossi in the lead, the issue continues to be pressed. Gregoir says that if this count says Rossi wins, that she will cease and desist. I am waiting to see what happens next.

The reality is the voters are tired of this. In a state that has typically gone Democratic, 70% of people, who took a Kiro pull say that the recount is not necessary.



Strangely enough, Rossi just keeps gaining votes.



If I can send 1 message to these people that keep pressing against hope and popularity, it is this,
GIVE IT UP! Let us have peace in our electoral system, and let it be done with.

Raging_Dave UPDATE

Hello all. This is the Raging_Mrs. I just thought some of you might like an update. I just got back from the wide open state of Montana. The Raging_Mr. is doing well. He started out as a Squad Leader and is now a Class Leader. He is doing well in his studies. From the sounds of it these studies(92A) will be earning us immediate rank. The only shooting he will be doing, is with his camera. Actually I think he is enjoying himself. The Army is doing well for him. A private room, catered meals, going out to the bar, hiking and even Karoke:) The only things he could really ask for are a private limo and better cell reception, oh, and to have me there.

If any of you would like more information, feel free to email his pacifier account. I am answering it.

Happy blogging

P.S. Still no news on 91W

Behold the Pork!

And this is likely just the tip of the proverbial iceberg.

Never mind that, as The Heritage Foundation calculates, the cost of government now stands at more than $20,000 per household per year. And never mind that the federal budget deficit has zoomed past $400 billion, the 108th Congress cut the pork thick and ladled the gravy heavy.

More about PET Scans...

...over at Claudia's place.

Of Rummy and Armor and RPGs

In my recent travels, as synchronicity would have it, I met a guy who is working on this system to defend vehicles against RPGs.

Do you know what a PET Scan is?

We're not to the point where doctors can wave a funny sounding device the size of an aspirin bottle over your chest to see what ails you, like McCoy did, but we really may not be more than two decades away.



Sincerely. I have been doing some work for some medical diagnostic imaging firms and the things that can be done today, without invasion, are outer limits.

Dear Sarah,

Your parents smoked pot when they had you, didn't they?

Dear Santa,

I don't know if you can do this, but for Christmas, I'd like
for my mommy and daddy to get back together. Please see what
you can do.

Love,
Teddy

Dear Teddy,

Look, your dad's banging the babysitter like a screen door
in a hurricane, do you think he's gonna give that up to come
back to your frigid mom, who rides his ass constantly? It's
time to give up that dream. Let me get you some nice Legos

Dear Santa,

I want a new bike, a Playstation, a train, some G.I. Joes, a

making toys?

Your friend,

Dear Thomas,

All the toys are made in China. I have a condo in Vegas,
where I spend most of my time making low-budget porno films.
I unwind by drinking myself silly and squeezing the asses of
cocktail waitresses while losing money at the craps table.
Hey, you wanted to know.

Santa




Dear Santa,

Mark,

First, stop calling yourself "Marky", that's why you're
getting your ass whipped at school. Second, you don't live
in a house, you live in a low-rent apartment complex. Third,
I get inside your pad just like all the burglars do, through
your bedroom window.

Sweet Dreams,
Santa





Want to see a microcosm of the continuing implosion of the left?

This was left in our comments by one of our obsessed leftist trolls:

"I can’t help but notice the similarity between the title and my screen name, clever. Don’t worry, I’m done picking the low hanging fruit here; or perhaps that’s ‘picking on the high hung fruit’. Just wanted to let you know I can and will post here at will; there is little you can do. You might try deleting my posts as your next move. Blocking me out is going to be a bit more difficult than dropping a few smiley faces into your posts. Enjoy.

Get that? It's done "picking fruit here" :) Oh, wait! It followed that moronoic statement with a threat that it can and will post here whether it has been banned or not. Smiling seems to piss it off. Is giving this fool the ban treatment "a bit more difficult"? You betcha. Just a bit! :) It's not like it hasn't had this very treatment here before. What's that, troll? You'd claim that you've never been banned here before? Funny! Here you are telling us: "Just wanted to let you know I can and will post here at will; there is little you can do." You're a liar and a fraud. Enjoy the credibility that comes with being name changing uber-troll!) This sack of crap must really think it's contributions are valuable. You've heard this before, "You guys should tolerate my continued idiocy 'cause dissent is patriotic and it's important to go over the same thing 500 times with me even though I'm wrong and refuse to learn and move on". You'd think someone who is so confident in their message would refrain from busting into someone's place when they've been thrown out and telling them there is nothing they can do about it, rather choosing to exhibit the "done picking fruit" attitude this fool completely undermined in the same breath. There in lies the connection between the macro mentioned in the title of this entry and this idiot's micro-spasm. There is no strength in the Democrat message...it is vapid. They spend their time trying to legalize the felon vote and divine the will of voters who are unable to follow simple voting instructions, or suing to change the rules of the election after it has been held (like they are now doing in Washington State where the Gov race is close). They do this because they know they're full of shit. They know they are losers and that the only way a loser wins is to cheat or win at any and all cost. News flash loser: You lost. It's going to cost you. You lost big. Don't believe me? Take a look at what the try-to-be-centrist Democrat Leadership Committee has to say!

For the Pig Headed

There was never any connection with al Qaeda and Saddam Hussein :)

From The Clinton News Network, February 13, 1999:

Saddam Hussein offered asylum

Iraqi President Saddam Hussein has offered asylum to bin Laden, who openly supports Iraq against the Western powers.

Despite repeated demands from Washington, the Taliban refused to hand over bin Laden after the August 7 bombings of the U.S. embassies in Kenya and Tanzania, demanding proof of his involvement in terrorist activities.

However, in recent weeks, both the United States and Britain have renewed their pressure on the Taliban to expel bin Laden.

Pakistan, a strong ally of the Taliban and one of only three countries to recognize the movement's control over Afghanistan, also has been asked by the United States to use its influence to have bin Laden expelled from Afghanistan.

"We have been asked, but we can't force the Taliban to do anything they don't want to do," Foreign Minister Sartaj Aziz said last week.

The Taliban did promise that bin Laden would not use Afghanistan as a staging arena for terrorist activities.

Bin Laden came to Afghanistan from Sudan more than five years ago while the Taliban's opposition ruled the country.


And you think your sorry asses deserve respect? Your pathetic attempts at rewriting history have failed. Your idiocy has left the Democrat party in ruins. Yet you cling to your delusions. Thank you. :) Never change.

Scuffle At Nigerian Airport



50 Cent and G-Unit had to cancel their tour in Nigeria after his posse beat the shit out of a Nigerian rapper (???) who dared to sit in the headliner's seat on a jet.

"An American artiste, 50 Cent..." it says.

Oy!

Saddam, U.N., Corruption, al Qaeda, Funding.......

We were like, "Saddam's a terrorist supporter too and he has all kinds of issues with the international community, he either cooperates or he's done." And Kofi and Chirac squeel, "NON! *we got a good thing going on here with him*"

Who'd a thunk it......We were right, and they're just a bunch of oil hungry robber barons.

Saddam had given $300,000 in cash to Ayman Al Zawahri, Osama bin Laden's number two man, in the spring of 1998.


Remember, Democrats play politics with our national security.

Got Kids?

Teach them patriotism while they are young. If they go to college, they'll need all the foundation they can get.

Evidence of the atypical uniformity of American universities grows by the week. The Centre for Responsive Politics notes that this year two universities—the University of California and Harvard—occupied first and second place in the list of donations to the Kerry campaign by employee groups, ahead of Time Warner, Goldman Sachs, Microsoft et al. Employees at both universities gave 19 times as much to John Kerry as to George Bush. Meanwhile, a new national survey of more than 1,000 academics by Daniel Klein, of Santa Clara University, shows that Democrats outnumber Republicans by at least seven to one in the humanities and social sciences. And things are likely to get less balanced, because younger professors are more liberal. For instance, at Berkeley and Stanford, where Democrats overall outnumber Republicans by a mere nine to one, the ratio rises above 30 to one among assistant and associate professors.
Oy!

I Don't Get It

How is it that anyone ever got the idea that Nicole Richie is hot?

The Eagles are Afire At Present

The Pack gets the country lickin' its fans so richly deserve.

Public Libraries and People who Love them

Such as myself right now.

I tried getting online in the barracks, but my modem doesn't like the military phone system that's set up. Other people have also tried and failed, so I know it's not my computer, it's something with the post phones.

Blah.

So anyways, how's everybody doing? I gotta say that the school is better than I expected. They keep us busy enough during the day. The barracks are... well.... barracks. Don't expect to much. No alcohol allowed in them either, but right now the wife is using up all our cash getting the household moved, so I don't have the money to buy booze anyways. It's not too bad though. I get chow three times a day on Uncle Sam's dime, so I can't complain. The only real gripe I have is being unable to get online and check email or blogs. I'm still working on that one, so bear with me.

Right now I'm sitting at the Lewis and Clark Library in Helena, Montana. They have a decent computer set up that allows just about anybody to get online for an hour. Depending on how much free time I have coming up (which might not be much) I'll try to get down here and online about once a week. I can't say that I'll be doing much ranting and raving though. Not enough time. When ya only get an hour, ya gotta use it wisely.

So this is just a quick post to say "Hi" and let people know I was alive. Don't bother commenting, I won't be able to read them for a week or so, possibly longer. I see that Analog Kid had another Blastorama. Lucky bastard. I wish I could have brought my 30-06 out here, there are deer EVERYWHERE. They're used to humans on post, and I got to about five feet of a four-point buck before he started walking away. There's also jackrabbits all over the place. If I had my .22 rifle, I could be making rabbit stew right about now.

Mmmmmmmmmmm. Rabbit stew.

The downside of that is the sheer about of deer and rabbit shit that lay all over the post. Piles and piles of it. I was doing PT the other day, took a spill, and slid through about five piles of it before I stopped. Thank god the laundry machines here don't cost anything.

Anyways, keep trucking, and I'll see you all later. No guarantees of when I'll be able to get online, so don't expect me too much. I'll make it out of here in time to have Christmas with my family after all, and after that, depending on when and if the Army has me down for my next school, I'll be heading down to Texas. Life is going along.

I do miss my wife, talk to her every night, and can't wait to see her again. But we both knew I was going to be away for a while getting trained. I'll be home for Christmas, and that's the best present I could ask for.

I'll see you all later!
