12. You are putting words in my mouth. Please calm down, and stop this.

In other words, if the margin is greater than 1/2 percent you don't get a recount.

That is NOT what I said. There are other ways a recount can be triggered in Pennsylvania. If you are interested, look it up. I don't have time or inclination to copy the entire PA Election Code for you. The point is still that the recounts and audits our laws already prescribe are meaningless and moot in Pennsylvania as a state because until we get rid of paperless DREs and get paper ballots statewide, as a state we can't meaningfully follow these laws.

I did not tell you to "shut the hell up". I said that you should quit wasting time on computer bulletin boards, get the hell off your can, and get out there and work for the audit and recount laws you want. IF you are unwilling or unable to do that then yes PLEASE shut up with these attacks and this bickering that is wasting everyone's time.

Yes it is correct that you didn't tell me to "shut up", but you DID say, "it's about time we put an end to the drivel you speak" which is just about as good. You also called me a "danger to democracy" and accused me of serving Harris (the former SOS of Florida not Bev with BBV I presume) and Kenneth Blackwell. Nice. Classy stuff.

Why would I cringe at any pro-lever machine lawsuits in NY state? I live and vote in Pennsylvania. We already went the lawsuit route here back in 2006 to try to at least buy our lever machines some time (Google Kuznik v. Westmoreland.) Nonetheless Pennsylvania's lever machines were long ago sold for scrap and our situation is currently not at all like NY State. I really could give a rat's ass about any lawsuits over lever machines up there.

You sure have your panties in a terrible wad about NY State's situation, but if NY is your state (and who knows; you hide behind a screen name here) you need to respect that other states are not NY. It would be a lot more productive if you would figure out what you can do to improve things in YOUR state, and leave my state (and me) alone.

It's a holiday; calm down. Have some eggnog.
