300+ Electoral Votes!

I think they should give you this sticker as well… #vote

Vote Romney 2012 – He’s White!

If they can’t buy the election, they’ll steal it… Screwed News from @Thom_Hartmann…

More than $840 million has been spent so far on this election by SuperPACs and other political creatures – and the vast majority of that spending has benefited Republicans. About $577 million has been spent by Conservatives – which is 69% of the total outside money spent. With spending expected to accelerate in this final week – total outside spending will top a billion dollars for the first time in our nation’s history. What’s worse is that we have no idea who these secret oligarchs are who are investing huge amounts of money in helping Mitt Romney and other Republicans get elected. While SuperPACs do have to disclose their donors, many non-profit groups, like Karl Rove’s, don’t. And non-profits that favor Republicans have outspent Democratic nonprofits 8-to-1 this election. If it all pays off for the oligarchs, then they’ll have one of their own in the White House – a pirate equity guy who’s made his living devouring the American economy for his own personal gain. This is a freak show election – and should wake us all up to the dangers of too much money in politics. Go to

In Screwed News…the election shenanigans continue in Ohio – and this time the courts are getting involved to help disenfranchise voters. On Wednesday, a panel of three Conservative Justices ruled in favor of Ohio’s Republican Secretary of State Jon Husted – paving the way for massive voter disenfranchisement in the key swing state. According to the ruling, voters who are instructed by poll workers to vote at the wrong precinct have no right to have their votes counted. A previous court ruling ordered that voters who are misled by poll workers still have a right to have their vote counted, but that’s now been overturned. We already know that the Romney campaign has sent out flyers to prospective ballot watchers in Wisconsin giving them misleading information to tell voters. Now, thanks to this court ruling, the Romney campaign can legally have its poll watchers in Ohio send voters to the wrong polling place to make sure their votes aren’t counted. According to pollster Nate Silver – Ohio has a 50/50 chance of determining who the next President will be. Thanks to the Electoral College – Republicans don’t have to launch a nationwide conspiracy to rig the election – they just have to lie to voters in a few key Ohio precincts. Stay tuned.

Sickening: More CEOs send letters to their employees warning VOTE FOR ROMNEY OR ELSE

I can’t believe this is actually legal…

Many of you have been with ASG for over 5, 10, 15, and even 20 years. As you know, together, we have been able to keep ASG an independent company while still growing our revenues and customers. But I can tell you, if the US re-elects President Obama, our chances of staying independent are slim to none. I am already heavily involved in considering options that make our independence go away, and with that all of our lives would change forever. I believe that a new President and administration would give US citizens and the world the renewed confidence and optimism we all need to get the global economies started again, and give ASG a chance to stay independent. If we fail as a nation to make the right choice on November 6th, and we lose our independence as a company, I don’t want to hear any complaints regarding the fallout that will most likely come. Remember, in the world of business, companies are consolidators or they get consolidated; so far ASG has been a consolidator, completing over 60 acquisitions in our 26 year history. When we buy a company, we eliminate about 60 percent of the salaries of the employees of that company. If we lose our independence and get consolidated, the same thing would happen to ASG’s employees.

I am asking you to give us one more chance to stay independent by voting in a new President and administration on November 6th. Even then, we still might not be able to remain independent, but it will at least give us a chance. If we don’t, that chance goes away.

This is shameful & Orwellian reporting — a new low, even for FOX.

Fox Botches Report On Decision To Uphold Early Voting In Ohio

A play about Ohio early voting, in three acts.

ACT ONE: In 2004, massive lines at the polls caused tens of thousands of Ohioans to be unable to vote, in a historically close election. Pictured is such a line from 2004.

ACT TWO: Ohio institutes broad early voting, which in 2008 and 2010 alleviates the early voting mess of 2004 without disenfranchising anyone. The days just before the election have the highest turnout percentages.

ACT THREE: Republicans move to restrict early voting specifically in the three days before the election except for military voters and those overseas. Fox News takes up the baton, and shamelessly calls any effort to keep early voting to all as an attack on military voters, who everyone agrees should be able to vote.

Flashforward to today, when early voting is upheld for everyone, Fox went down still lying to itself and its viewers:

SCOTT: Ohio’s voting laws are going to be changing, it would appear. There was an early voting program voted in by the state of Ohio for military members and their families. They were to be allowed to vote early. The Democrats and the Obama campaign asked that that be blocked. They, for whatever reason, did not want military families and military members voting extra early. A couple of lower courts blocked the law — again, at the request of the Obama campaign and state Democratic officials. Now it’s gone to the Supreme Court. The Supreme Court is going along with that block.
So in FOX Land, this wasn’t the Republicans abusing their power in order to deliberately disenfranchise people and make it more difficult to vote. It was the Democrats and Obama trying to prevent military people from voting. Riiiiight. Got it.

Pathetic and disgraceful.

Oops: House GOP outs ‘undercover CIA operation in Libya’ on C-SPAN

The Republican lawmakers, in their outbursts, alternated between scolding the State Department officials for hiding behind classified material and blaming them for disclosing information that should have been classified. But the lawmakers created the situation by ordering a public hearing on a matter that belonged behind closed doors.


Republicans were aiming to embarrass the Obama administration over State Department security lapses. But they inadvertently caused a different picture to emerge than the one that has been publicly known: that the victims may have been let down not by the State Department but by the CIA. If the CIA was playing such a major role in these events, which was the unmistakable impression left by Wednesday’s hearing, having a televised probe of the matter was absurd.

Chaffetz’s and Issa’s outbursts ensured that the base in Benghazi would become a high-priority target, as the CIA is frowned upon by Al Qaeda terrorists and others.

Another point. The question of how much obvious security there was at the compound becomes rather interesting now that Chaffetz has informed us that this was actually a CIA station. I could imagine that the CIA might not have wanted a massive contingent of Marines based at the “consulate and ‘annex’,” lest it signal to the bad guys that this was not simply a backwater “consulate and ‘annex’.” But the administration couldn’t give that response while Mitt Romney and the House Republicans were berating them for supposedly not having more security at the station, they couldn’t explain that maybe we didn’t want the extra security because it might have signaled that there was actually a CIA operation underway.

Sounds like it’s time for a hearing about the hearing.
