No voter fraud here

Just move along.......

More than one out of every five registered Ohio voters is probably ineligible to vote.
In two counties, the number of registered voters actually exceeds the voting-age population: Northwestern Ohio’s Wood County shows 109 registered voters for every 100 eligible, while in Lawrence County along the Ohio River it’s a mere 104 registered per 100 eligible.
Another 31 counties show registrations at more than 90 percent of those eligible, a rate regarded as unrealistic by most voting experts. The national average is a little more than 70 percent.
In a close presidential election where every vote might count, which ones to count might become paramount on Election Day — and in possible legal battles afterward.
Of the Buckeye State’s 7.8 million registered voters, nearly 1.6 million are regarded as “ inactive.” That generally means either they haven’t voted in at least four years or they apparently have moved.

How do we fix it?

It's amazing that ever since "the science was settled" all this information comes rolling is that our real climate issue is global cooling.

“Global warming which has been the subject of so many discussions in recent years, may give way to global cooling. According to scientists from the Pulkovo Observatory in St.Petersburg, solar activity is waning, so the average yearly temperature will begin to decline as well. Scientists from Britain and the US chime in saying that forecasts for global cooling are far from groundless.”

Here's my question for your garden variety Branch Gorevidian. Let's assume that the earth is, in fact, cooling, how do we warm it up?

Does the government require that everyone buy an SUV?

Do we burn more coal?

Do we run our furnaces 24/7?

Seriously, does anyone believe that we humans have the power to counteract the power of mother nature if cooling were to be the catastrophe of the day?

So what makes you think we can slow warming?


Who did he vote for? #781

Meet Mark Rosenthal.
Why is Mark in the news?

“He eats lunch when he arrives at work at 2 p.m. Then, like clockwork, he goes to sleep with a cup of soda on the table and the straw in it,” said Marvin Robbins, a union vice president.

“Then he wakes up, looks at his watch and says, ‘I have to get out before the traffic gets bad.’ He’s usually out by 4 p.m. after being at the office two hours.”

Rosenthal is a former Parks Department employee who rose to power campaigning to rid the union of corruption in the late 1990s.

He last made embarrassing headlines in 2009, when he inspired a City Council bill requiring jumbo-size ambulances for morbidly obese patients after he had a stroke at City Hall.

Since then, he hasn’t been making much of an effort to give the city’s ambulances a break and slim down. Union officials say he racks up $1,400 in monthly food bills on the union dime.

So in the last election, did Mark here vote for Romney or Obama?
