12. Yes indeed. HOLT BILL IS GREAT.
Edited on Mon Jul-20-09 10:41 PM by UnitedVoters
As you can see, there are the ALLCAPPERS, and then there are the analysts.


Yes indeed the dynamic duo of the late Gideon and the would-be VotePad vendor Theisen (who perhaps still has a vested interest in seeing the Holt bill fail) refused to support this great bill over this silly non-issue that has plenty of time to be corrected by 2014. It seems that Ellen (who is the only living member of the duo left and thus holds current responsibility for their stance on the bill) finds opposing competition for her own invention to help the disabled more important than immediately protecting millions of votes that would otherwise be paperless and unaudited at all without HR2894.

Who cares. I'll put my money and my all caps with Verified Voting, Common Cause, True Majority, Voter Action, the American Council of the Blind, the Brennan Center, the EFF and even Harri Hursti who are all endorsers or supporters of the bill.

On this forum yes, of late there have been allcappers along with a plethora of wanna-be wonks, self-proclaimed analysts, and blabbering blow-guns who have nothing better to do than to criticize others for expressing their opinions in their own way.

YOU take YOUR pick. (all caps intended)
