    Took them until week three to get their shit together, but this was some classic UW Huskies football today. Just wish it had been a conference game, because it’s a damned shame to have a win like this and not really matter, in terms of conference standings or bowl games.

    Hope they keep it going at this level though, because conference games start…[Read more]

    Now her royal highness HRC has weighed in for her good friend Justin, and Bernie has endorsed the more progressive candidate. IIRC Obama also endorsed Macron during France’s elections.  No wonder the US has become such a shithole country: Always sticking its nose in other people’s business instead of fixing its own problems.

    Bernie Sanders,…[Read more]

    I remember local elections in Texas where ballots were much as you described. They also had voting machines in some elections, where you went into a booth, closed the curtain, and then pulled levers. You could even go back and change your vote before you pulled the big lever which submitted the tally. Not as good as your system, but better than…[Read more]

    It was election day. They went down the street to vote. I tagged along.

    It surprised me that they were voting the old fashioned way — pencil and paper then placing it in a box. We went back to the polls later to see the results. Like you said, they counted the votes manually, by hand.

    As the US elections became more computer high-tech, the more…[Read more]

    Yes, it truly is a wonderful system, and Elections Canada has recently stated they have no plans to change it.

    I was a poll observer 2 elections past, and I was pretty impressed by how well run it was. It was in a large riding, and this polling station served more people than most (or so I was told). When you come in, you show the voting card…[Read more]

    Are they hand-counted, too? We don’t have that in the States. Everything is scanned electronically at some step in the process, and any electronic scanner or tabulator can be tampered with. That is why I have no faith in the integrity of American elections.

    Seriously. The guy creeps me out.

    As for voting, my partner and I did it last Saturday at 8:30 pm. Walked over to the Finnish Agricultural Church down the block, was checked in by the old guy with the thick accent, handed a ballot by the middle-aged extremely blonde woman with an accent, and enjoyed a few minutes of laughter at my expense because…[Read more]

    You damned well should strongly object to Barack Obama for telling you how to vote. If anything, it should persuade you to vote for someone other than Trudeau.

    The Barack Obama-Justin Trudeau bromance social media users once swooned over is now ruffling some feathers as Canada prepares for its 44th general election — a surprise, snap election that was called by Trudeau himself just five weeks before the September 20 vote.

    As he did in 2019 when Trudeau was seeking reelection as Prime Minister, Obama h…[Read more]

  • ‘not as silly’ part.

    Isn’t this almost EXACTLY the same thing that gives us beliefs in UFO’s and such, much less political shit @ohiobarbarian ?

    I wonder. Emotion versus reality. Or just emotion overriding reality.

    Go whoever cause we believe in you!!!!

  • I noticed Texas Athletic & Military has the Gig Em Aggies hand sign, which is almost the same as Hook Em Horns.

  • I suppose one claw gesture looks very like another. So the kids want to have their own cheer and gesture. So what? Oh, that’s right–tradition. Sports fans have a tendency to get very hung up on tradition. The Clemson alums should just get out of the way and let the current students make their own fun, as they no doubt did in other ways back in…[Read more]

  • Clemson football fans are upset because students are adding a “tiger claw” gesture to their cheering. It’s a new thing, and former students don’t like it because they didn’t do it when they attended Clemson. I wonder if they would get all excited if the college decided to sell its journalism department to Fox News. I went to a medium sized college…[Read more]

  • So I’m stuck trying to figure out why I can’t print an image on photo paper from Linux OS. I know there is Win-doze print software on XP but I can’t boot it. It’s stuck in prompt window. I put new battery in it so internal clock would work….nada.
