As a parent I am certainly going to make sure I vote on Tuesday. Especially after finding out Tom Emmer refuses to condemn the recent Teaparty / GOP violence in Kentucky against a female protester at a public debate. After seeing the video I would say that is terrorism towards women. No parent should think any politically charged violence by men against a girl is okay under ANY circumstances. Unless you of course you are okay with that and want our country to go down the road of the Taliban.

I don't think anyone was surprised to see Tom's son Tripp Emmer arrested for underaged drinking after leaving a Strip Club in Alexandria. Tripp's participation in a pornographic assault on an underaged, unconscious girl, with drawing male genitalia on her face and then proudly posted on his Facebook Page. Yet Tom Emmer continues to pay his son $300.00 a week to work on his campaign when Tripp continues to engage in degrading sexual behavior toward women.

Rand Paul Protester Previously Arrested For Vandalizing



Interestingly enough, the activist – whose name is Lauren Valle – seems to have spent some time in Louisiana earlier this year. And Valle picked up a citation for rather uncivil conduct during her stay in the Sportsman’s Paradise. Per the Lafourche Parish Sheriff’s Office:
Monday, May 24, 2010 Activists Face Felony Charges – Sgt. Lesley Hill Peters Sheriff Craig Webre and Harbor Police Chief John Callais announced the arrest of seven Greenpeace activists in Port Fourchon. A complaint came in at approximately 12:45 PM stating the seven had boarded a vessel at Port Fourchon and painted messages with an unknown substance on different areas of the ship. The messages were directed to Interior Secretary Ken Salazar. A representative for Salazar was at Port Fourchon this morning while other dignitaries congregated in Galliano with Secretary Salazar and Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano regarding the ongoing oil spill impacting the Louisiana coastline.
The seven had been seen in the area for the past week and had been repeatedly warned by law enforcement not to hamper clean up operations and not to trespass. Greenpeace is known for pre-planning and coordinating similar protests to bring attention to environmental issues. Pictures of the vandalism appeared on the Greenpeace website within minutes of the arrest of the activists.
All seven will be transported to the Lafourche Parish Detention Center where they will be booked with unauthorized entry of a critical infrastructure (R.S. 14:62.3) and unauthorized entry of an inhabited dwelling (R.S. 14:62.3). The New Orleans Joint Terrorism Taskforce is reviewing today’s incident and all seven could face additional charges.(Hat tip: Robert Stacy McCain, via Gateway Pundit)
Valle, it seems, has been involved in separate incidents involving both Greenpeace and MoveOn.org . That's a good indication she’s a member of the Professional Left. The purpose of her presence at the Paul-Conway debate, in fact, was to present Paul with an "employee of the month award" from Republicorp, a fictional company created by MoveOn.org in an attempt to dramatize how the GOP has allegedly merged with American corporate interests.
The New York Daily News reports Valle, a 23-year old Columbia religion graduate, was hired by MoveOn.org for three weeks to work on the "Republicorp" project in Kentucky; it can only be assumed her role was to follow Paul around and attempt to embarrass him.

First of all, don't lie! There is no way you are a parent, no guy would touch your ugly arse!

You go right ahead and vote, it's your right! But it still won't change the course of the mid-term election landslide of booting your progressive-communist DFL party from office. We have had enough of the false "hope and change"!

Mr. Emmer has no reason to apologize for something that happened in another state. Secondly, the radical MOVE-ON.org activist with a wig who tried to attack Mr. Paul was not a protestor, just an extreme radical DFL activist who set the whole thing up to get filmed just to make the Tea Party/Mr. Paul look bad. Now, it's idiot shill's like you who are making her out to be a "victim". She is lucky that's all that happened.

Regarding Tripp Emmer? I see you have no problem playing the DFL slimey political game of smear your opponents family with inuendo and lies. You do realize that your IP Address is accessible by law when you purposely slander someone's character.

Now, go slither back under the rock you came from, arsehole!

I am so exited about voting on Tuesday. I am voting GOP all the way. Time to go away liberal tax me to oblivion politicians. Your ideas are crazy. If Betty McCollum is reading this, let me be real clear, you suck! Al-queda is a real threat and the budget is not just a piece of paper, and yes there is voter fraud. One more item for you congresswoman, I am your constituent and you did not represent me nor anyone else in the 4th district by voting for obamacare.

His Obamaness has prudently decided to skedaddle out of the country immediately after the elections. He obviously knows what's about to happen.

http://thehill.com/homenews/campaign/124863-f... -- "Following in Clinton’s footsteps, Obama to leave town after election"

"President Obama is giving Republicans a 10-day window to set the agenda for a lame-duck session and the new legislative year by leaving the country right after the midterm elections.

"The timing of the president’s trip to Asia is worrying some Democrats, who believe it could cede further momentum to a resurgent Republican Party that might win a House majority on Nov. 2.

“Unless we're planning to hold the lame duck in India, it makes zero sense to take a 10-day overseas trip right after what could be a disastrous midterm election,” said one Democratic strategist, speaking on background so as not to anger White House officials.“It will demoralize Democrats and needlessly cede message and momentum to Republicans.”

I am voting conservative all the way this time. I am a union steelworker, single parent, former independant. We are going to lose our country with the leftist progressive agenda. I refuse to believe that most of this country is for the redistribution of wealth and the dole. Vote. Vote them all out!!!

Payroll departments brace for congressional verdict on tax cuts
The decision by Senate Democratic leaders to delay a vote on the Bush-era tax cuts until after the election has put the payroll industry on high alert.
If Democratic leaders fail to determine the tax rates by Dec. 10, it could be too late for payroll administrators to withhold the right amount of tax from workers' paychecks, according to industry officials.
"The closer you get to the end of the year the more problems there’ll be," Michael O’Toole, senior director of publications and government relations at the American Payroll Association (APA), told The Hill.
"If [the IRS] issues [withholding tables] within three weeks before the end of the year, most payroll systems will be able to implement them by Jan. 1," O'Toole said. "We’re warning [payroll departments] that there is this uncertainty out there and you're going to really have to pay attention and probably have to move on a dime when there is some certainty."
(Excerpt)
http://thehill.com/blogs/on-the-money/domesti...
Beginning in 2012, under a little discussed mandate of the health care reform legislation, businesses will be required to report all payments in excess of $600 for services or merchandise to the Internal Revenue Service on a Form 1099.
"Under the new law, businesses will be required to send a 1099 to other businesses for virtually all purchases," said Chris Hesse, director of taxation at CPA firm LeMaster DanielsPLLC in Washington state, as quoted by Chris Edwards in a Cato Institute blog.
"And for the first time, 1099s are to be sent to corporations," Hesse said. "This is a huge new imposition on American business, costing the private economy much more than any additional tax that the IRS might collect as a result."
http://www.accountingweb.com/topic/tax/costly...
The reporting requirement will affect business in two ways, according to The Boston Globe. First, most of a business's revenue now will be reported to the IRS by the businesses that paid it, so understating large amounts of revenue will be more difficult. Secondly, it will force businesses to identify the recipients of their business expense payments.
"There is no doubt this will be an administrative nightmare for many businesses in the first year or two," Jamie Downey, partner at Downey & Co. said in The Boston Globe. "Have a large business-related meal at a restaurant, this will need to be reported on a 1099. Spend a week in a hotel in Waco, Texas; you will need to send a 1099."
"[The IRS] told us that HHS is the one that is given the requirement to interpret this entire law," Lungren said. "That was an extraordinary response as far as I was concerned...I have never known HHS in the past to be responsible for interpreting tax law."

MSNBCs Ed Shultz commenting on voting ten times in MA if neccessary: "I'd cheat to keep these bastards out"

&fe ature=player_embedded

John Fund states this in his article :

" Democracy Imperiled "

http://www.nationalreview.com/comment/fund200...

" But many federal and state prosecutors remain leery of tackling fraud or intimidation. After extensive research, I can report that while voting irregularities are common, the number of people who have spent time in jail as a result of a conviction for voter fraud in the last dozen years can be counted on the fingers of one hand. "



The New York Daily News did a study in 2000 (EXPOSED: SCANDAL OF DOUBLE VOTERS 46,000 registered to vote in city & Fla.) that looked at people who were double-registered in New York and elsewhere.

The key statistics:

Of the 46,000 registered in both states [New York and Florida], 68% are Democrats, 12% are Republicans and 16% didn't claim a party.

Introducing the Voter Fraud App (Reports Voter Fraud)

Across the country, states like Nevada, Texas, Colorado, Missouri and Arizona have begun to report issues regarding possible voter fraud in their state. With claims of voter fraud continuing to come in, American Majority Action announced today it will launch a mobile application to help identify, report and track suspected incidents of voter fraud and intimidation. This free, cutting edge system will enable voters for the first time to take action to help defend their right to vote.

Minnesotans are too smart to elect Emmer. They saw what right wing extremists do to our state with Pawlenty.

Dear, protesting and "embarrasing" a teapartier does not warrant being wrestled to the ground by a bunch of teapartier thugs.

Plus those protestors "embarrassing" Whitman should not be called "communists" by Whitman.

The Paul thugs and Whitman are the disgrace not the protestors.

You're right about one thing, the teaparty does not represent ORDINARY Americans. They are EXTRAORDINARY Americans who are telling their own party what is expected of it. They don't just vote for anyone with the proper party endorsement like the liberals do.
And, if Mark Dayton wins, it won't have anything to do with God. It will be the 3 million dollars he "loaned" himself!
