Re: “Frank Heindel's Report on South Carolina Voting Machines

Recently during Primary voting in Horry County, I witnessed a sad display of
decrepit voting machines. Only two machines were working. The others were
broken down. Very strange!
During the Presidential election, the wait to vote was as much as 3 hours during the day. In this area many are senior citizens. A 3 hour wait, standing in line, to vote for those with disabilities, and health concerns, is not conducive to voting efficiency.
Also, During the Presidential elections, I felt it odd that, as a Democrate, I had to
wait for a special voting machine to become available. It seems Democrates had to use a different machine than Republicians. Thank you for this lawsuit!

Re: “Gregory Forman on Law and the Sexless Marriage

It's called constructive abandonment and it can also be considered as cruel and inhumane treatment. Depending on the state constructive abandonment can be legitimately used as the basis for a fault divorce.

Re: “Gregory Forman — A Lawyer Who Understands More Than Law

I'm a noncustodial parent living and working in California and my two sons live with their dad in Oregon. As I'm reading this blog, I feel absolutely no sense of justice or hope, only the massive pain in my heart has been ever present for eight years. I wish I would have read this blog before I decided to have children. I love my children and I love children because they are so beautiful to the world, but their father's emotional problems and his use of the system has separated me from my children and the only result has been pain. I learned that is never worth it to give that much power of your life over to someone. It simply is impossible to trust anyone that much and escape without your life being destroyed. You must have the money to set up a contract in which doesn't destroy your rights and the money to continue sustaining your rights. If u don't have the money to do that, do not have children. Like I said as I'm reading the blog, all I feel is pain.

Re: “Let's Teach Rep. Joe Wilson a Little Respect

Dear Mr. Moredock,

You would have sat there with your mouth shut in the midst of a Fraud in progress? oh, that's right, you did. You and the rest of the national, negligent, narcissistic, partisan, lazy, good-for-absolutely-nothing press.

Knowing what we in the public know now, it's hard to believe the others sat there and listened like idiots.

You owe Mr. Wilson an apology.

Re: “Should There Be A License to Have Children?

1) Licenses and permits are a tax pure and simple

2) Do you really want to make something that is a Natural Right into a government granted privilege?

3) What ever you can do legally with a license, you can do lawfully without one, since government cannot license anything that is unlawful. And having children is a lawful act, lets face it they already scammed you with Marriage license, drivers license, gun license, work permit/license etc. etc. all of them are taxes designed to extract money from your pocket!

4) How will a license stop people doing stupid things, or act responsible? Does a driving license stop stupid driver's?

5) Whenever you assign authority to the government you a failing in your role as a citizen and are basically agreeing to be DEPENDENT on the government.

That is why this world is in its current state. No interest or accountability by the people, they prefer to watch mind numbing TV, believe in bought and paid for biased news media networks, and aspire to be like shallow and oblivious self centered entertainers and sports celebrities, while their government runs rampant.

Re: “The Accomplishments of President Obama — It's More than You Would Think

This is informative and will help to silence all of President Obama's hardcore critics and haters! I may not be his fan anymore but don't hate him or wish him bad.

Re: “The Accomplishments of President Obama — It's More than You Would Think

When Republicans ran my polling place, they checked ids.
I don't know about where you voted, but when I went to
vote, the two new faces I had never seen before didn't
ask for id and didn't even look when I offered mine. I
saw an older woman all but mark a young man's ballot for
him, she stood over him as he voted, and directed him at
every step, from ballot to voting machine, and put his
ballot in the machine, for him. Election officials never
even blinked. In fact the one election official standing
at the machine the pair used in front of me, pointed me
to an unoccupied machine, so I couldn't observe the
woman's manipulations.

No wonder some precincts in NY reported Seventy Five
Percent turn out, if they ain't checking ids, anybody
could vote in three or four different polling places and
nobody would even know, or apparently, cares. I'm willing
to bet that couple I observed went from polling place to
polling place, maybe even from one community to the next,
across the state, voting time and time again.
If Mr. Trump wants to spend his money proving voter
fraud, if he can get his hands on the voter registration
books, I'll bet an honest, competent handwriting expert
can find the same people's handwriting under the name of
several, maybe even dozens of so called voters, in NY.

Pure Banana Republic, and I ain't talking about no damn
clothing store, either, 100% Chicago gangland politics. I
don't agree with Donald Trump about much, but I have to
agree on this election, what a complete f<(k!n@ fraud.

Obama's biggest accomplishment?
The complete and total corruption of this country.

16. New federal funding for science and research labs?

which field? There are different fields, different sciences last time I checked. How is this an accomplishment? I see "Dr. Watson" is at least good at counting - up to 90 anyway.

I did not know community colleges offer Ph.D. too. It would probably have saved me 5 years!

Re: “A Republican in a Balloon

A bit more realistic designation would be the person in the balloon is a politician (party irrelevant), and the person in the boat, a theoretical intellectual. The person in the boat is most likely also lost, since if he knew where he was in common terms that might be useable to the woman he likely would have told her. This does present a fair image of how our government officials and their supposedly knowledgeable technical advisors accomplish so little.

Re: “Anti-Choice Forces Hijack Healthcare Reform Debate

just last October 2nd, 2010 a doctor is arrested & posts a 50 thousand dollar bond for defending himself, ready to return fire with his legally permitted concealed handgun, PROTECTING HIMSELF FROM 3 STALKERS IN THE BUSHES ILLEGALLY TRESPASSING ON AN ADJACENT DENTAL CLINIC PROPERTY .... what kind of police force punish law abiding citizens & enables terrorists in their campaign of intimidation 40 DAYS & NIGHTS FOR LIES ? Get real, the religious insanity must be confronted before dead doctor number ten is buried. DR Tiller was number 9. A two inch embryo is not a 20 inch baby. Get over it your bible fanatics. If you read the obscene genocidal book instead of merely fondling it & threatening women with it, you would find Hosea 13:16 & 6 other passages actually order violent abortions on Samarian women, "ripping open the bellies of pregnant women..." .... religion must not be either encouraged or discouraged by our gov't, a neutral single standard of law, BUT INSTEAD CHARLESTON POLICE ONLY drags Atheists & Doctors into court while allowing all vandalisms, assaults & threats of murder to be falsely enabled as free speech

Re: “The Accomplishments of President Obama — It's More than You Would Think

For those that bash our President with your unpatriotic rhetoric and lack of ability to listen to a credible PHd from the New York Times, I've got some advice: If you think you could do better and disagree with all the many great things our President has done, get on the next ballot and run. If you can't be part of the solution by bringing something constructive to the table to help our country, than you should stay quiet and save yourselves the embarrassment of ridiculing someone who has done a great job despite what he inherited. Like mothers teach us, "If you don't have something nice to say, don't say anything at all". The need to strike when you've got nothing valid behind your remarks is as ugly as the people unwilling to help our country get back on track.

Re: “The Accomplishments of President Obama — It's More than You Would Think

You are wrong about Iran. They are in Iraq and destroying Iraq. Their agents are killing any Iraqi intellectuals including students and they are setting of bombs and in the south, they are forcing others out and forcing people to speak Farsi. The government of Iraq and its so called Prime Minister Maliki is Iranian and even his mom is jewish.

Re: “GOPers Will Force Vote on NPR Funding

Neh, when I heard an NPR reporter talking about the GM bailout as a good thing because the company was now making money, and how "Obama did the right thing"; I knew NPR was biased and never tuned into that station again.

The fact of the matter behind GM is that the government's bailout DIDNT WORK! GM still went into bankruptcy, many workers lost big parts of their retirements, most stock holders' stocks were reduced to junk status, and every single other bad investment by a garbage company was off loaded. Now, NPR reports that GM is roaring back because of Obama's bailout??! Really, of course after every single person, except the government and the CEOs, were ripped off and lost money, a new, debtless GM will post profits. So, why did NPR say this is a good thing? Because they are a political arm of the Democratic party, and they were just supporting their Democrat president.

Had the current president been Republican instead, NPR would be bemoaning the GM situation for what it is, highway robbery of the workers, the stock holders, and the american taxpayer. That all said, I'm not a fan of the Republicans either, but at least they cut funding for this garbage station my tax dollars were once helping to fund.

Re: “Former Reagan aide regrets what Reaganomics has brought us

Oh my God, this 'Riick' character has no clue of what he speaks(So Reagan cures the recession & the inflation he inherited and thus the Left reviles him?).. that's pathetic.

At least 'Sark' proffers a more cogent analysis.

Re: “Frank Heindel's Report on South Carolina Voting Machines

As a software programmer and coder, I'm well aware that machines are only as accurate as the humans who produce and test them. The voting public has put far too much faith in these machines. Governor Crist had it right - we need a paper trail. Thank you for bringing this to light with your articles. Ever since I first saw your article in September, I have been meaning to write you. There is nothing magic or absolute about computers. They aren't infallible. Technology is not god. We need to interpret results and be smart about political motives.
