I'm not sure I understand where you draw the line

between Obama Hating and questioning his motives and actions, as well as how he has misrepresented himself to those of us who have voted for him. I guess I never got the meme that Huff Post = bad. Sorry about that. You are apparently familiar with the list of top Obama disappointments, though. And you do seem to agree with some of it, just as I do, but somehow you've placed yourself in a different class than me. Curious, that. Maybe you can let me know which subjects are approved for our mutual criticism of the President of the United States and which ones are not approved, and would automatically make me a Obama-Basher (or is it hater?). I guess I'm getting confused again. Anyways, yeah, just let me know. Because I sure don't don't want to step on any toes.

Oh, concerning the primaries, he's seems to be the ahead.

oK.... as far as those points you made,

they're good, but we still don't have a candidate progressive ENOUGH to undo the massive shitstorm of a knotted mess that the Bush/Cheney folks left us with. That flurry of terrible legislation has set our country back 50 years (except for the tax rate for the wealthy), and we really needed someone to start unknotting it or cutting the knot at least. I don't see that happening. With both the Dems and Repugs on the side of MONEY, we aren't going to see any Progress until MONEY is no longer part of the equation. Many of us Dems don't see much of a choice, except between getting the thumbscrews, or a hot poker in the eyeball. Not much of a choice. And when a man no longer has a choice, he ceases to be a man.

I really have no idea what you're trying to accomplish here.

Are you just trying to insult everyone? You are succeeding in that. You are condescending, belligerent, and interested in accelerating provocation. Your attitude absolutely shows that you have little in common with me, even though, in theory, we are on the same "side".

I know we're complete strangers in cyberspace, but is it really that difficult to have a little common respect?

I didn't come out of the gate calling you Professor Poopypants, Shit-Eater, Dick Nose, or FuckFace. YOU did. Even worse, you compared me to Glenn Beck. That. Is. Not. Acceptable.

What's an iPhone?

and what is this Facesbook and Googler that I've been hearing about?



I'll dive in when the dust settles.


which would be never?

Three way tie in the race to destroy civilization...

"The Glenn Beck Program is the nation's third highest-rated radio show, behind The Rush Limbaugh Show and The Sean Hannity Show."

ugh. Where's Col. Kurtz when you need him?

This happened in Austin as well,

for the city council/mayoral race they had moved the polling location (without any kind of prior written warning) and provided the INCORRECT ADDRESS and Location Name on the flier for the new location (but the Google map was correct). I had voted early, so I didn't run into this problem. My wife knew that the new address was incorrect and called the elections board (or precinct commissioner?) to complain.

When I voted (early again) in the Democratic Primary, I suddenly realized that our District had indeed changed and Lloyd Doggett was no longer a possible choice to be my Representative. I'm suddenly in Lamar Smith's district. I'm furious.

The redistricting maps have been have been changed multiple times, which is part of the reason that our Primaries were delayed. Trying to find the accurate map online was a challenge, and I kind of know where to look, and have been paying attention to this issue. Most people won't even notice, and by the time they do, there is nothing to be done.
