71. The problem with you is...
... you post these news stories without any strategy as to what to do about them. Then you atteck Bo Lipari and Demodonkey who at least ARE trying to do something, and again you make no concrete suggestion or strategy as to what to do instead.

You say you like to "discuss" things but when you do discuss things you tend to nitpick and go round and round on the same ground, again without any real suggestion or strategy as to what to do. We all know certain HCPB people who use that exact same tactic to disrupt the forum with a defacto denial of service attack.

It's 70 days until the election as of today. At this point it's so late I think nothing can be done except to look ahead and figure out what we are going to do beyond it. What will we do if McCain is declared winner and the election looks funny again? What will we do if Obama wins and because of that the left wing drinks the kool-aid that everything is OK with the elections now? If we are going to have audits, first ALL states must have something that is auditABLE to count. What are we going to do to help states like Pennyslvania and others that still have millions of votes on paperless systems?

Who knows? Who cares??

I happen to think that in November it will come down to Florida, Ohio, and/or Pennsylvania and of those, Pennsylvania officials are the most out of it when it comes to election integrity because the other two states have at least admitted there is a problem. I think Demodonkey is absiolutely right to point out that her state is a hell of a lot more important and at-risk than most if not all other 49. Believe me, my state isn't going to matter regardless of whether we have good audits or not. Pennsylvania damn well might and for millions of votes they have nothing there to audit if they wanted to.

As far as personal information, weeks or months ago Demodonkey posted that she mentioned election integrity in a televised speech about her mother who has problems with healthcare, and that her mother has always been an inspirational advocate for voting and democracy. And your problem with that is...... what? Anyway on THIS thread, YOU were the one who brought up Demodonkey's mother and brother (I don't even recall her ever mentioning a brother) but NOW you say (quote) "it's not particularly relevant." WTF was THAT all about??

I'm going to work.
