If You're Gonna Do It, Do It Right

In about 15 minutes, I'm heading down the street to vote. My little role in the 2012 GOTV effort, or as I like to call it, "Operation Visine" (Get The Red Out). But voting is only half the battle.

As the parent of a 4-year old and the caretaker for a new puppy, please allow me to use an analogy that I've used for a couple of years: Voting is like having a bowel movement - you have to do it RIGHT.

You can sit on the couch and crap your pants if you wish. I don't understand that type of thinking, apparenty you HOPE that someone will come along and CHANGE your pants before the smell gets too bad.

You can take a crap in the sink. It's an immature response that might be useful as a protest, (like back in college when the neighbors kept having loud parties and you left an "upper decker" in their bathroom out of frustration) but do you really want to be known as "that guy"? If so, fine. Just realize that it's got the same results as crapping your pants: Someone else will have to clean up the mess. But at least you can proudly say "I didn't crap my pants". As if it matters.

Or, you can be a "big boy" and use the toilet. And while you're at it? Flush. It's the decent thing to do.

29 You've described my brother-in-law. I guess his time in the Navy jaded him.

I've never understood why people will willingly join the armed forces, then bitch about it the whole time. Yeah, there are some things about it that suck, but there are things about life that suck. You get over them and move on.

Then again, he wasted 5 years getting a psychology degree only to discover it didn't actually qualify him to do anything other than say 'I attended college for 5 years'.

I knew that degree was useless (sans Master/Doctorate) when he said that is what he was going for. Too bad it took him 10s of thousands of dollars and 5 years to figure it out.

41 Voted a few minutes after 6:00 am in Greenwich, CT. There were more voters than usual this early. The only ones at the '75 feet from the polls' point exhorting voters were Democrats. Unfortunately, too many of the early rising voters were probably Obama votes, minorities and young liberal types. I hope things improve during the day. CT will go Obama for sure, but I'd like to see McMahon pull it off and beat the odious Chris Murphy and Obstinek beat the triply odious Jim Himes.

52 Just finished voting on a cool, rainy day in central Florida. In my conservative little town (where the number of Obama signs can be counted on two fingers and the number of Romney signs is best expressed using scientific notation) the line was the better part of a block long. People were good-natured even with slow progress and a temperamental ballot reading machine that took (I kid you not) a swift hit to the side to work correctly.

I'm curious what the lines are going to be like in the O-bot areas. Unless the Democrats can match this sort of thing they're going to burn faster than a grease fire fueled by Michael Moore's bloated carcass.

Keep calm and finish him.

53 The analogy is interesting, never knew there was so much options to crapping. In about an hour, I get to vote in SoCal. First time voter (obtained my citizenship in 2010) and I know I'm going to be almost in tears when I vote. A marvelous privilege and one I will never take lightly. God willing, I would have played my part in victory for R/R.

Re: other thread PHilly/NBPP discussion. The only way this gets attention is if someone with a Twitter or FB account starts a #noPhillyTourism campaign. Mayor Nutter springs into action when his precious tourist dollars are threatened, like a couple years ago when flash mobs were rampaging through the city and it was hurting tourism.

And, if that seems racist, I'm sorry.. it's not meant to be. Obama has brought the office of the President to new lows. He has cheapened it. He has catered to the lowest base of American society. And he has not once tried to be President to all Americans.

Fuck him and good riddance. Don't let the door hit you on the way out, Barry.

74 Just voted in Northern Virginia (Courthouse Arlington) and the place was packed, took me 90 minutes. One guy handing out Republican sample ballots, 3 commie/fugly/hippie guys and girls handing out Dem ballots. Lots of smelly utes wearing the grunge clothes, they must not work, or else their girlfriends have jobs. The hottest babe I saw had a Republican ballot, FWIW.
I also adjunct in the History Dept of one of the DC universities and there is a palpable lack of interest compared to 08. I've only seen three kids with Obama/Biden bumper stickers on their laptops, only 1 shirt, and another kid with a hat. One of my best students, who genuinely was conflicted but will in the end vote for Obama, told me yesterday "it's not cool anymore, the buzz is off," and then he whispered "they already did the black thing and so the novelty's worn off." FWIW from a lonely patriotic conservative fighting against the pernicious liberalism of our educational system. Go R/R!!

78 Heading out (on foot) in my town in Colorado.
Fox just ran an article indicating my state is near the top for potential voter fraud with electronic voting machines registering Obama instead of Romney.
Election officials claim the machines are "very sensitive to touch".

If I end up with an electronic machine, I'll have a sick feeling about this. The machines can do whatever the programmer desired when the "Enter" key is pressed and lie to you on the screen.

Next time I'm voting by mail. That is a paper ballot -- the worst thing that can happen is "losing" my vote, which mathematically is better than reversing it.

My wife did that, and waited until Saturday to personally deposit her ballot. My problem with early voting involves "October surprises", but I'm not seeing a way to vote with any confidence that WYSIWYG actually happens -- I'm a software/hardware engineer.

On the up side -- maybe today won't involve an average of 20+ pre-recorded phone calls, calls with dead silence upon answering, and phone calls asking inanely stupid questions or trying to change my mind about things I've studied for 3 months.

cheery crowd, all talking ROM!!!!

he said he felt great. took him nearly an hour to vote tho, b/c the ladies "checking IDs" were total morons.

I'm running a few errands this morning than going to vote on the way to work a bit later - figure I'd let the "early meeting" folks vote first!

Bonus: The Republican pollwatcher was there before the Dhimmocrat, and the local O'Gabe place near my house that I passed on the way in was deserted.

Well, it wasn't quite that cold in my neighborhood this morning, but there was frost on the ground when I voted at 6:30 w/ Mrs. Tex. We're in a pretty red district, and the line was longer than I'd ever seen. PLUS, for this election, the polling place was handling only ONE precinct instead of the usual two.

According to my highly-accurate internal exit polling, it's Mitt Romney 100%, Jugears McFuckstick 0%.

Got up about 2 hours ago. Couldn't sleep. Prayed last night for a Romney win and again this morning. Am in SoCal so we certainly won't enjoy a Romney victory but will be living vicariously through other states that go for RR. My only solice is TFG has dropped by huge numbers herecompared to '08 and that says something, I think, to the crap weasels that run this joint.

To all the horde who can vote in states that have the chance of a RR win,think of the millions of ustrapped in blue states andFINISH HIM.

The line was fairly long for my itty bitty ward first thing in the morning. Just FYI, the last time I saw a line like that at my polling location?

186 voted at 8am here in western Montgomery County PA. I am in a precinct that is probably 60-40 Republican. Lines were probably about as long as 2008. The one thing I noticed was that there were only 3 minorities on line the entire time I was in line (probably 25 minutes). A big difference from 2008. I was number 100 in the "A-G" line. I asked what my prize was - hopefully a Romney win in PA and nationally.

190 Just back from voting. Just went straight GOP, though I voted for each individually. I was glad to have some of the older-style, pseudo-electronic machines. Personally, the more paper in the voting process the more I trust it (since I don't trust dems as far as I can throw them and I don't trust any of these institutions, anymore, and anonymous voting has become nothing more than a license to cheat and steal for the leftists).

To add insult to injury, while I just moved out of the shithole of Philadelphia, proper, it turns out that I've been chased out to the suburbs through redistricting by Chakah Fattah, the America-hating retard. Fucking ridiculous.

238 “So in no case at any level does Obama break that 50 percent mark,” Goeas said early Tuesday. “I think you’re probably looking at a 2-point Romney win at this point … Then the question becomes: What about the Electoral College?”

Lake, the Democratic pollster, expressed confidence in an Obama victory. While Romney leads in the South, the Central Plains and the Mountain States, Obama is on top in the Northeast, Midwest and West.

(See also: POLITICO’s swing-state map)

“We’re behind the regions where there are no swing states, except Colorado,” she said.

Romney maintains a significant 6-point advantage on who is better for the economy and creating jobs, 51 percent to 45 percent. A majority, 53 percent, disapprove of Obama’s handling of the economy, 57 disapprove of his spending policies and 54 think the country is on the wrong track.

For the first time all year, Romney has taken the lead on which candidate will better handle tax policy. Obama was up by 2 points for the past four weeks, but Romney pulled ahead by 1 point, 48 percent to 47 percent — a statistical tie.

242 Some anecdotal evidence from Ohio: Drove through the largely Democratic city next to mine and one of the polling places looked empty. Here in my more Republican city, I passed one polling place that looked busy, then went on to mine, which was reasonably busy. Not packed, but not empty (probably busier before people had to be at work; more older, probably retired, people there now). It was probably a 10 minute wait to vote. There was a guy handing out Republican voter guides, and people appeared to be taking them.

I still think Romney's taking Ohio.

271 Iowa National Guard’s last Vietnam vet retires
The Associated Press
Posted : Monday Nov 5, 2012 12:54:16 EST
JOHNSTON, Iowa — The Iowa National Guard says its last Vietnam veteran has left its ranks.

The Des Moines Register reported that Col. Ronald Albrecht retired Sunday at a ceremony at Camp Dodge in Johnston.

The 58-year-old had served a total of 36 years for the nation’s military.

Albrecht enlisted in the Navy soon after graduating from Waverly-Shell Rock High School in 1971. While in the Navy he was deployed for a year supporting the U.S. mission in what was South Vietnam.

He left the service in 1978, went to college and eventually became a teacher.

Albrecht joined the Iowa Army National Guard in 1983 and was commissioned a second lieutenant in 1984.

He’ll continue working for the National Guard as a civilian contractor with Northrop Grumman.

And I bet he is voting today also!

280 Just a few hiccups at our local polling place:

1) They didn't have the key to the box that contained the ballots, so we waited 20 minutes for someone to arrive with it, and

2) If you think "being able to see" is a prerequisite for checking people in, you are mistaken. I'd estimate our volunteer first helped out when the presidential tilt was Garfield-Arthur.

Good for her. I remember you telling teh Horde about her move a few months back.

As for my laptop, I only got two years service out of my hard drive. I was having a lot of problems with it starting about two months ago. Did a diagnostic, nothing showed up until I did the full one, which showed the HD had died. Obviously, it was an intermittent problem. New one is scheduled for delivery on Thursday. It's not a direct replacement, couldn't get one from Dell, strangely. Had a 500Gig 7400 rpm screamer originally. Now getting a 250Gig 7400 rpm. Will replace it myself.

On November 6 the Luxe Sunset Boulevard Hotel will serve as an official polling site for the 2012 election. In true Luxe fashion, the hotel will be offering voters in precincts 9001354A and 9001364A a unique voting experience.

The hotel’s polling station will be located in the festive Luxe Sunset ballroom. Hotel guests and local residents (anyone in the 90049 zip code) who stop by the hotel on November 6 will be treated to Election Day specials that include complimentary valet parking, a voucher for 15% off a future dinner at On Sunset restaurant, special room rates and hors d’oeuvres throughout the day such as coffee, muffins and festive finger foods.

290 NWNC voting update. I went to vote around 8:45 a.m. The only person handing out stuff was a woman from the Romney campaign who handed out a conservative voter's guide. There was one person in line in front of me. It took about five minutes to vote and I got a paper ballot which I far, far, far prefer. If the count on the machine was accurate, I was voter 114 which I found really surprising. There were probably five people in line when I left.

291 On MSNBC’s “Last Word” tonight, activist and filmmaker Michael Moore discussed what he believes is the origins of voter suppression and how to get people who aren’t going to vote to change their minds.

“Voter suppression was one of the founding principles of this country. Our Founding Fathers suppressed the vote by saying only white male property owners could vote,” Moore said about voter suppression.

I'm in the upstate, too. Haven't voted yet, but our neighbor just called to say that the line at our polling station is beyond packed. Now, it's a foregone conclusion we'll go for Romney, but in any election I've ever voted in, even in 2008, the line was 20 people long at best. He said it's wrapped and winding all down the halls inside the church polling station.

No one said "You're Welcome." This was at bout 830am. I don't know why they couldn't answer me. There ws NO line or anything, i HOPE it is because they know what is about to happen: Mitt Romney is about to become President-Elect. Oh- Also saw two anti-Obama signs on Bigelow Blvd int he city, on the way to vote. Saw VERY FEW Obama signs on the 15 mile drive to vote (from the suburbs where I am much of the time with my mom).

332 One thing that continues to amaze me when I go to vote is that the people doing check-in NEVER get my name right. It doesn't matter how clearly I enunciate. It doesn't even matter if I spell my name out for them (which I always do). They always, always, ALWAYS spend thirty seconds trying to find my name in the wrong spot on the checklist. "I'm down at the bottom," I usually end up telling them. Then, "No, up a bit. A little more. No, that's actually my father."

You don't want to know how many times they've tried to check me off as either my mother or my father. MY FATHER. Not to put too fine a point on it, but my chest size leaves no doubt as to my gender, IYKWIMAITYD.

This year we've got new Voter ID rules, so I thought I'd be able to cut through all that BS by just handing over my ID as I checked in. So I slid my driver's license across the table, said, "I'm so-and-so," and waited.

THEY STILL LOOKED IN THE WRONG SPOT ON THE CHECKLIST.

OMG, my name is RIGHT THERE! It's spelled out in neat little black block letters! Height, weight, age, gender -- all of it! RIGHT THERE on that little rectangular piece of plastic!

*headdesk*

And in the end, the woman STILL tried to check me off as my mother. I had to tell her, "That's my mother actually. I'm the next line down."

Better yet would be:

Voter ID Picture with sig
Registration required 14 days prior (or what ever time is deemed necessary to check bona fides and no multiple state registration.)

This would eliminate a lot of slackers.

the dems know they're riding the backs of lazy/uninformed people. Besides helping detect fraud that why they don't like the id requirements. Their voters are mostly too lazy to get ID. Or are afraid to apply. IYKWIM

362 This year we've got new Voter ID rules, so I thought I'd be able to cut
through all that BS by just handing over my ID as I checked in. So I
slid my driver's license across the table, said, "I'm so-and-so," and
waited.



THEY STILL LOOKED IN THE WRONG SPOT ON THE CHECKLIST.



Oh GOD yes. Today the woman flipped the page to me and I looked down and said "That one" pointed it out. She squinted and said "this one?" to one two below that was for a GUY. Yeah. It's not exactly hard to tell I'm a chick. Me "No, this one" SHE GOT IT WRONG AGAIN! Sweet people other than that though.

366 I voted enthusiastically for Romney this morning here in Tonawanda, NY. I know my vote won't even count being in NY, but it felt damn good and I was excited. The polling place was plastered with campaign signs for every candidate, except Obama. I've only seen two Obama signs here all year, and too many Romney/Ryan signs to count. I hope and pray this means something... Heh.

I wish I could have seen a confirmation of my vote, though. I filled out the scan-tron sheet and fed it into the scanner, and that was that. No confirmation of who I voted for. Is that normal around the country?

368 183. Project ORCA is a large part of the Romney campaign's election day GOTV efforts. They have a person with a smart phone stationed in each polling place recording the names of everyone who has voted into a smart phone app. This app uploads the data to their computers at the Boston headquarters. For about 90% of the voters they already know how you are inclined to vote based upon datamining and microadvertising technology. With this information they use the Project ORCA data to make real-time decisions about how to deploy GOTV volunteers during the day and to know how the voting is going. I suspect they will also be using this data also to counter the mainstream media when they start telling their pro-Obama lies about exit polls.

Guy was from St. Vincent and the Grenadines and lot a US citizen.

The property requirement for voting was eliminated
before the colonies became States. IOW it was gone before 1776.

****
At the federal level the Constitution ratified in 1787 (not 1776) does not include a property requirement for voting in federal elections.

But at the state level, owning property as a requirement for voting persisted until the 1850's.

Dorr's Rebellion in RI (1841-42), for example, arose over the disenfranchisement of a majority of men in the state, who were not property owners.

Moore , of course, is a dimwit, in that he construes a requirement for voter eligibility as a "suppression", but 200 years ago the idea that you had to have skin in the game in order to vote was commonplace.

Good arguments can be made to resurrect that idea, chief among them the problem of people paying no taxes voting themselves "free stuff".

The hair color has gotten better. It's not so blue anymore.

The style is the same. I call it older woman helmet hair.

They cut it short to make it easy to take care of.

(this is dangerous ground but I'll press on)
I have a theory about women's hair:
The shorter the hair, the less likely the woman feels the need to be attractive as compared to the need to have the ease of maintenance.

I.E. the fewer men in a women's life == the shorter the hair.

I think they would be better letting the hair grow longer as the short hair has become almost a uniform nation wide. but then I'm a guy and like long hair on women. (of any age. it makes them look younger. hint, hint ladies?)

Now I'll sit and wait for the backlash.

428 I have a theory about women's hair: The shorter the hair, the less likely the woman feels the need to be attractive as compared to the need to have the ease of maintenance.

There is a corollary. This only applies to red or slightly purple states.

In deep blue areas, the women disdain hair care products of any kind to include but not limited to: shampoo, conditioner, dyes, straighteners, extensions, combs, brushes, curling irons, hair dryers, barettes, scruncis, and head bands.

My field research and subsequent dissertation on this topic were written in Cambridge., MA and Berkeley, CA.

SMOD
Sweet Meteor Of Death.

During the dark days of the primaries when there was much contention and dispair. Lo, the angst was great as we watched our own favorites disintegrate,consume the tardisil,or fall to their own pain medication in the debates. It was a time of great gloom.

At that time, we hoped for nothing but the sweet release of death. It was approximatelythe month4B.R. (Before Ryan) those who were not in the Romney campwished fora meteor to put us out of our misery like the dinosaurs. Thus, it was "Vote S.M.O.D."

Things changed after "R" became "RR". The stars had realigned we began to consider thatMitt may be the one who could bring down the One. Now, we wish that SMOD will spare us and only impact our enemies.

alex, love your post. I swear I am always close to tears every. single. time. I walk to a polling place that we vote and don't have a military insurrection when we disagree with those in power.

432 In hindsight you know, Fred Thompson was a great idea. McCain didn't even try to win. Wasn't ace all googly eyed for Fred and people made fun of him? A Fred campaign would have been fun anyway, knowing as we now do that the alternative was a beatdown.

433 As Command Sergeant Major George S. Bowman used to say, "It's good when troops complain. It's when they stop that you have to worry, because that means they've made up their minds about something."

I'll bet the Sergeant Major had good things to say about his service as well.

I've never heard my BIL say one good thing about his time in the Navy. Not even talk of 'drunken carousing' (he was enlisted in the 90s - maybe they had done away with that, which would explain why he had nothing good to say).

Fred campaign would have been fun cause we would have gotten to look at his wife's tits!

Coranado looks very nice - their business in manufacturing particular items for the oil industry so San Diego was the pick because of the specialised tradies there needed to build the stuff
No Navy connection - hubby and daughter are Aussies

I had a projectile poop after voting this morning. It felt good getting rid of it, and giving it a flush.

But not nearly as good as flushing the stuttering clusterfuck of a miserable failure/tyrant/goofball.
