Even more so when you find out that the whole voting thing is a hoax because the result has already been decided.
That is figuratively speaking, right? Or else tell us what the decided result is 

How should I know? I'm not the one who decided on it. Besides, even if I did know I wouldn't be foolish enough to reveal it and get the men in suits after me.

EDIT:
On second thought, I might just as well let you know. Sadly, they've chosen McCain. It doesn't matter who you vote for, they will count the votes but nobody will count all the votes, which is why it's easy for the guys who really decide on these matters to throw in some random, yet believable number: "McCain won with 53.4% of the votes", or something like that.

Are you serious? Please tell me you aren't serious. Next we'll have a 9/11 Truther thread and then I'll have to kill myself.

But it's McCain who wins, save yourself the anxiety.

^ If the King has all the power, he is a dictator. If he has only some of the power, he's no more than a president with a crown.

Perhaps you should take a look at some of this:

Obama Doesn't Sweat. He should.

by Greg Palast

Greg Palast on the Thom Hartmann show - Obama Doesn't Sweat,


"n swing-state Colorado, the Republican Secretary of State conducted the biggest purge of voters in history, dumping a fifth of all registrations. Guess their color.

In swing-state Florida, the state is refusing to accept about 85,000 new registrations from voter drives overwhelming Black voters.

In swing state New Mexico, HALF of the Democrats of Mora, a dirt poor and overwhelmingly Hispanic county, found their registrations disappeared this year, courtesy of a Republican voting contractor.

In swing states Ohio and Nevada, new federal law is knocking out tens of thousands of voters who lost their homes to foreclosure."

But, assuming my plans for world domination will not reach fruition, I guess I'll go with Obama as a distant second.  Tongue
I can understand your anger at me, but what did the horse I rode in on ever do to you?

If you're going to make sweeping accusations, it would help if you didn't rely on dinky personal websites.

Greg Palast

Writings of a progressive investigative journalist.

Not a dinky personal website.

So you don't care if legitimate voters are denied their right to vote as long as you like the outcome?

I think it's time for the 9/11 truther thread. Angry

Right now neither.  Anyone who wants "real change" to quote one of the candidates would not vote for either as well.  Either one is going to raise taxes, spend more and make government expand.   They are both insiders in that they are part of the machine. They have to ask for favors to get elected and then have to repay those after they get elected. There are no Mavericks here.  
 
I am pretty depressed and disappointed. Cry

No, I didn't say that, don't twist my words. I don't believe the accusations because I haven't seen enough evidence to prove that anything that may or may not have happened was due to malice and not merely incompetence.

Please don't tell me your a bloody 9/11 Truther.

That was a question, not a twisting of your words.  If you want to see the evidence, Greg has plenty to back up what he's saying.  You might start with his book, The Best Democracy Money Can Buy.  Of for free you can go to his web site and check out a couple of BBC TV broadcasts on the subject of the 2000 and 2004 elections.

Actually, I can attribute 9/11 to incompetence and indifference.  There is of course no shortage of people with looney theories about that.  Guess you totally missed my joke there.  You were offering to kill yourself if someone started up a 9/11 truther thread. Tongue

Fair enough, I'll look into it.

Besides the hilarious and classy commentary, that is a very poorly photoshopped version of the head from this picture:


Stupid, unfunny, wildly inappropriate commentary.


Someone who knows how to use to Photoshop a little bit better, although that is also a much easier job, but still stupid and tasteless if it's implying what I think it is.
 
What will you post next, the even more poorly constructed Juneau poster?
 
Come on, you should be above this. Did you actually listen when Obama spoke?

I give up. You can't win these battles with logic and reason because these people are beyond both. If you are in fact implying what I think you are.

Dang, and I was just about to vote for them.



OK, looking at the original photo, she still has the look of a crazy woman in her eyes...

By the way, I found the clown car pic to be inaccurate, still funny, and only somewhat inappropriate. LOL
I just had to share those.

And by request:


Oh and by the way, I don't waste my time watching conventions.  They're so conventional.

The original photo is much funnier than any Photoshop could be, especially when doing something stupid like making it a demotivational poster.
 
I just noticed her eyes aren't aligned, does she have a lazy eye or something?
 
I just saw your last post. Doesn't anyone know how to use Photoshop well?
