Barack Obama, our next President

Florida's Long Lines On Election Day Discouraged 49,000 People From Voting: Report
""Florida took center stage in the 2012 elections, when voters around the state had to wait in line at the polls for up to nine hours. Gov. Rick Scott (R) initially denied that there was any problem, saying it was "very good" that people were getting out to vote.
But a new study shows that tens of thousands of people were actually discouraged from voting because of the long lines.
According to an analysis by Theodore Allen, an associate professor of industrial engineering at Ohio State University, as many as 49,000 individuals in Central Florida did not vote because of the problems at the polls.
About 19,000 of those people would have backed former GOP nominee Mitt Romney, while the rest would have gone for President Barack Obama, according to Allen.
The Orlando Sentinel, which published the results of Allen's research, notes that those findings suggest "that Obama's margin over Romney in Florida could have been roughly 11,000 votes higher than it was, based just on Central Florida results. Obama carried the state by 74,309 votes out of more than 8.4 million cast."
Since the elections, Scott has admitted that his state still has its share of electoral problems. In a December interview with CNN, Scott said "we've got to restore confidence in our elections," pointing to three issues: the length of ballots, size of polling places and the number of days for early voting.
Indeed, Allen's research also found that the long ballots that confronted many Florida voters led to longer lines, which resulted in suppressing turnout. Black and Hispanic voters were disproportionately disenfranchised.
The GOP-controlled legislature reduced the number of days available for early voting from 14 to eight for the 2012 elections, meaning voters were trying to cast their ballots in a shorter window, which resulted in longer lines.
Scott refused to extend early voting hours even as problems at the polls gained more attention. Former Florida Gov. Charlie Crist, who was a Republican while in office but is now a Democrat,- called his position "indefensible."
Democratic state lawmakers in Florida have introduced legislation to address the long lines and expand early voting hours. There have also been several efforts at the federal level, and Obama has said it is imperative to "fix" problems at the polls.""

Stupid Republiclown tricks!!
And Obama won Florida nonetheless!!
BWAHAHAHAHAHHA
Yep. And I suspect it may get worse in 2014.

Beverly Hills High School...

"...The task force was formed after a major security breach in December when a 26-year-old male adult walked into a morning classroom and sat among students."

"BHUSD board member Brian Goldberg said this week in a commentary that he would like to see each campus “limit access to one controlled entry…and place armed guards with metal detectors at that one entrance.”

"Why are we spending thousands of dollars on high school security officers who are unarmed and sit in 20-year-old golf carts?” asked Deutsch, herself a BHHS alumna."

I like this fact that people like you want to define the Constitution while claiming to go back to it's "roots."
Always playing both sides of the line.
The only economic system that fits into the enumerated powers of the Congress is capitalism.

Show me how I'm wrong.

You're being intentionally vague again. Must have something to do with with your aversion to clarity.
lol! No son. Cons are intentionally vague.

Freedom and capitalism aren't one in the same. In fact, they're not in the same philosophical category.

This is why it's you idiots who are being dishonest. One does NOT imply the other, but you keep stirring things in that fashion.

It clearly shows what a lack of education you have, or the intentional deceit by conservatives!

What does the Mayor of Chicago have to do with it, nitwit??

It's a national discussion.

With the death rate in Chicago, they better have off duty cops.

Gather up all th eguns. Stop gunmakers from dumping guns into inner cities and driving up crime.

More guns won't solve anything. That's obvious.

No guns would solve it all.

"The national murder rate was 4.7 per 100,000 in the US in 2011.

Nationally there were 14,612 homicides in 2011.

In 2011 the murder rate in Chicago was 15.7 per 100,000."

Gonna change it up. Bobbi Darin kicked arse on this Song.

Check out The Names in The Song ... They are all word plays.



Sinatra was offered to perform this Song first but declined due to the Mafia references. And it made "Robert Cassotto's" career.

There were four major economic systems in practice during the 20th Century: Communism, Socialism, Fascism, and Capitalism. Can anyone tell me which of these were concordant with the US Constitution and why?

Topix is a diversion for me. A way to decompress, rather than a means of survival.
