Voter (registration) Fraud continues

JACKSON, MS (WLBT) – Mississippi’s voter situation is hard to believe. Places like Madison County have over 123% more registered voters than people over the age of 18.

Sue Sautermeister, First District Election Commissioner in Madison County, tried to purge the rolls, but ran into trouble when it was discovered it takes a vote of three of the five election commissioners and the purge cannot take place within 90 days of a federal election.

Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann is the first to admit the situation with voter registration in this state is terrible.

“It is terrible,” he says. “Combined with the fact that we don’t have voter ID in Mississippi, anybody can show up at any poll that happens to know the people who have left town or died — and go vote for them.”

The worst part of all this is that they can’t do anything about it.  See they can’t purge the info within 90 days of the election.  They know it’s wrong, they know why it’s wrong and what this situation will be used for yet are powerless. 

The voting situation in this country is pathetic.  This should anger everyone from the right to the left.  But then again it does favor one side more than an another. 

Oil drops to just over $60 a barrel. Why?

The pudits say that signals point to less fuel consumption as the reason for the large drop in oil prices.  As I drive to work each day I don’t see the drop.  The roads here are a full as ever.  I suppose there may be a drop in fuel usage but it’s not obvious and I question if it’s really enough to have such and affect.  So I wonder, do you see less use of fuel?  Have each of you slowed down your usage? 

Perhaps the real question is why did oil go up to over $130 dollars a barrel?

Joe Leaphorn and Jim Chee are gone.

If you haven’t read any of Tony Hillerman’s mysteries with Joe Leaphorn and Jim Chee your missing out.  If you’ve never been to the southwest these mysteries can take you there.  Tony was able to create not only compassionate characters but authentic New Mexico atmosphere in his novels. 

Tony has died and but has left a great gift to the rest of us. 

It’s been a while since I read one of these novels but I remember enjoying them alot.  The Shape shifter and the thief of time were my favorites.

Obama, undecideds and what are we thinking?

The argument that the media isn’t reporting on the interesting associates of Obama are a waste of time. First off the media has covered this issue. Not to the extent or speed that they investigated “Joe the plumber” but still the information is out there.

The problem isn’t that the connections to Ayers or Wright available it’s that nobody cares. Those that have chosen to vote for either candidate won’t be swayed and those that don’t know who they are voting for probably don’t have an attention span long enough to explain what the connections mean.

WHY?

Some I work with ask themselves how anyone could vote for Obama. I think there are people who honestly believe that someone else, anyone else should run their lives for them. There are those that believe socialism is a good form of government. They either don’t know the historical success rate of socialist societies or can’t read. I think both.

This is not an endorsement for McCain who has been part of this establishment for decades.

Like most years we must vote not for the best in this country but the selected. Unfortunately I simply don’t trust one candidate on his ability to handle the security of our nation. I hope I’m wrong.

One would think that with our Governments poor performance that they would turn away from politicians and not trust them to run anything. In other words limit government don’t expand it.

Oh BTW how’s that bailout working?
