Why I love my Paper Ballot

The Office of the Texas Secretary of State has order ourLocal recount shut down because of problems with the electronic vote hijackers and everyone around here laughed at me for insisting on a paper ballot. Now, during this recount my vote is one of the easiest to find, and they know it was cast and for whom it was cast.

*Sigh* Yes, I voted in that primary and I don't want to hear one word out of anyone if you lived in this county you would have voted in it too. We had some skunks in the henhouse that needed shooting and the only and I mean only way to do so is to vote in the unnamed primary.

This ones for Steve

Now this may not be an original idea. I really don't know as I haven't been hanging out at law blogs; so if it isn't don't the two of you who find this post yell at me. Here it is: My itty bitty light bulb...
All these wing nuts that are so willing to suspend our 4th Amendment rights during wartime should be asked to look at the surrendering of constitutional freedoms from the perspective of losing a different right: The Right to Bear Arms. Now, if their beloved Bushwacker told them that for their own protection he needed them to unload their guns, and deliver them to the nearest federal law enforcement agency. What do you think their answer would be? How would they react?

I am betting that we just might have a revolution on our hands, because their President, be he the beloved Bushwacked or not, was messing with their Constitutionally Guaranteed Freedom to shoot at things. That is how I have begun to fight the: We must give up freedoms argument, and the President is just trying to protect us argument. Put it that context the next time someone says that we are at war and the President is just trying to protect us. I just point out that he could just as well try to protect us by restricting private gun ownership too. Where do you draw the line? Which Amendment is more important to you?

I hate getting this stuff in my email...

A father wanted to read a magazine but was being bothered by his little girl, Shelby. She wanted to know what the United States looked like.

Finally, he tore a sheet out of his new magazine on which was printed the map of the country. Tearing it into small pieces, he gave it to Shelby, and said, "Go into the other room and see if you can put this together. This will show you our whole country today."

After a few minutes, Shelby returned and handed him the map correctly fitted together. The father was surprised and asked how she had finished so quickly. "Oh," she said, "on the other side of the paper is a picture of Jesus. When I got all of Jesus back where He belonged, then our country just came together."

I get alot of these at work and I can't scream all I can do is swallow hard. Now see I think the story is cute, but I fear far too many people take that stuff way too seriously. Now if we put Jesus back where he belongs...IN CHURCH...not in school, not in government, not in everyone's bedroom then maybe the country would be better off. But do you really think the author, or the person who forwarded me this email thought of it this way?
