Maybe this is the work of Republicans?

Picture of the Moment

I’m supposed to start teaching chess in a couple of private K-6 schools this coming week so I had to get certified in CPR and Basic First Aid. I had done both back in Texas when I was with Alpha Phi Omega National Service Fraternity, but what’s in the past is in the past. So today I was in class from 8:30 this morning until 4:05 this afternoon.

I walked around the commercial/industrial neighborhood for lunch and saw that the San Diego County Registrar of Voters had moved and the old building had been completely demolished.

I walked around the whole fence and saw many signs saying that they had moved. Here was one of them:

We moved

Now in fairness to them, only two of the signs looked like that, but one of them was on the busiest corner, and that’s the one I saw first. I commented to myself (remember, it was Saturday so no one else was around): “Any idea where? That would be useful information.”

Maybe this is another voter suppression effort by Republicans?

    In Cleveland a heavily Democratic city, where I was a consultant for the board of elections, dead people often vote. Political shenanigans is not the domain of one party over the other.

    It always amuses me that I can’t get on an airplane without identification but I can vote without it.

      The record doesn’t show that dead people “often vote.” Have dead people voted? Yes, in every state throughout history. “Often” though? Hardly.

      However, you don’t have to tell me about political shenanigans. I grew up in the South, where political corruption was a way of life in Houston, New Orleans, and with several of LBJ’s elections, a way of life!

      For the past 20 years I have lived in San Diego, the current home of political corruptions. Google Randy “Duke” Cunningham, Bob Filner, Michael Zucchet, Ralph Inzunza. And those are just the most recent four off the top of my head!

      The Republicans, however, are doing their darndest to prove themselves idiots when it comes to basic science, and the are not endearing themselves to minority voters such as GLBT, women, blacks, etc. Trust me, the world and the U.S. is not getting whiter!

      P.S. I have voted since 1976, and in the various states where I lived and/or worked (Texas, Louisiana, Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Florida, Washington, Oregon, and California), I always had to register although some of those states let us register at the time we voted, but I still had to show identification of who I was. In other states, I had to show identification and had to have been registered prior to the election. So until someone can document such cases with video (why are there no videos in this day & age with so many videophones in everyone’s hands?), I’m not buying it.

    There were people charged in Canada during our last election with voter corruption too. Robo calls were made in primarily Liberal voting districts that misdirected voters to a wrong address, telling them the polling stations had relocated. So politics can be a dirty bit of business anywhere’s in the world, but I will say (only my opinion), Republicans could teach a masters class on it. I don’t know why the losing party just can’t play nice in the sandbox for the good of the majority (aka the winners), that goes for Canadian politicians too.

      We had two similar circumstances that I know of here in the U.S. like that. A Democrat-leaning group did one, but it turns out that the Republican voter registrar had purposefully given them the wrong information. In the other one, the Republican-learning group purposefully misdirected voters.

      I haven’t really liked Old Town since the State fired Diane Powers. She took all her restaurants with her and set them up elsewhere. One, Casa Pico, is about a mile from me. None of them, though, were able to maintain the quality that they had when they were in Old Town.
