SEATS!!! I swear (but not here, usually) I try to attack not the
person, but the idea, but GIVE ME A BREAK!!!! As Forrest Gump's momma
used to say, "...stupid is as stupid does!" When people propose
stupid ideas, you'd better take a close look at the person and be
REALLY SURE that you want to re-elect them. If they fool you once,
you're still at fault, but if they fool you twice, "Momma" may have
been talking about YOU!!!
Now let's examine the rationale. Granted thousands, maybe millions of
people bank on-line. I DON"T!!! There are still some bugs in the
system & until I'm satisfied that it is safe, I WON'T!!!
If you want to, God bless & protect you. Go ahead. That's your choice.
If someone rips you off, that's your problem & only affects you.
If someone perpetrates voter fraud, which can be (& has been) done,
even in our current system, it affects EVERYONE!!! Why would thinking,
rational people want to make it easier for people to commit voter
fraud? They WOULDN'T, unless that's the whole idea.
I'd rather think of them as totally incompetent NINCOMPOOPS, than
dishonest, but I believe there are only 2 choices. Stoopid, or
crooked, take your pick. Either way, MY Troops have no business
supporting a stoopid (or crooked) scheme that could (easily) lead to
One of these days we will probably have the technology to enable
(secure) computer registration. I don't expect it in my lifetime. Just
as (sane) people don't jump off of great heights believing that they
have a "Justice League" flight ring (it may happen, but wishing don't
make it so) so do rational people not say "I wish it were easier to
register voters. Let's do it on-line. It'll be O.K."
I know that if I wish in one hand & hold the other one under a running
faucet, barring divine intervention, there is no question as to the
one that fills first.
NO COMPUTER VOTER REGISTRATION!!! Everyone who supports this, GIVE ME
50!!! No, not push-ups, dollars, so I can donate it to a candidate
with more sense &/or honesty.
God bless y'all & ESPECIALLY those who stand at the walls or walk the
beats or wait for the call-out alarms (been there, done that & got a
T-shirt that says,"U.S. Army, IrreGular") & God bless AMERICA!!!
Dis-MISSED!!! Sgt Mack. out. Leaving the air & closing station.
