WARNING: THIS SITE FEATURES ORIGINAL THINKING...Jim Croce once sang Don't tug on Superman's cape..., which seems like reasonable advice should we not wish to anger the supreme powers. We do have this duality in our culture: the Superman that is the state collective, the leftist call to a politics of meaning managed by the state, the deification of "we're from the government and we'll take care of you" - versus the Superman that celebrates individual freedom, private property, freedom of conscience, free enterprise, and limited government. We humbly take on the latter's mantle and, eschewing the feeble tug, we dare to PULL, in hope of seeing freedom's rescue from the encroaching nanny state. We invite you, dear reader, to come and pull as well... Additionally, if you assume that means that we are unflinching, unquestioning GOP zombies, that would be incorrect. We reject statism in any form and call on individuals in our country to return to the original, classical liberalism of our founders. (We're also passionate about art, photography, cooking, technology, Judeo/Christian values, and satire as unique, individual pursuits of happiness to celebrate.)

The Saga of Cheeseland Continues
Filed in: Current Affairs, Politics, Wisconsin Vote Fraud

Democrat resistance to investigating Vote Fraud in Milwaukee has backed off (Journal Sentinel Article).  Notice I didn’t say succumbed.  They are buying time to come up with a new tactic.  The governor, and mayors of Milwaukee and Racine are trying to create a new reason for objecting to Voter ID. 

Well, just heard Mayor Tom Barrett of Milwaukee come up with the most incomprehensible, unbelievable, reasoning on this topic I have ever heard.  Sit down folks you are not going to believe this.

This is his reasoning.  He happened to be at an inner city high school in Milwaukee giving a presentation for some reason.  Afterwards, a teacher approached him and said, “Mayor can you see to it that we have driver’s education classes here?”  Instantly, he was able to relate this horrible problem with Voter ID’s.

His logic.  Students at North Division can’t get their drivers licenses from a driver’s education program therefore, when they turn 18 they won’t be able to vote.  Fact - You can go to any Wisconsin Motor Vehicle Center and get an official Wisconsin ID (regardless of age) for $4 and about a ½ hour wait.  In all the proposed Voter ID legislation, of course, they will be issued free.  The rich, white Republican kids can do this, but it is so hard for the inner city kids (we know what that means).  If I said what he really meant I’d be called a racist.

What makes this even more amusing is this little known fact.  Barrett’s Milwaukee Library requires photo ID’s to check out a book.  Now let’s try and figure out why it is ok for the City of Milwaukee to ask for a photo ID at the Public Library, but not for voting.  Using the same logic of the mayor, I guess Mayor Barrett and the Dems don’t care if inner city students can’t read, but they need to vote.  How can they vote if they can’t read?

Well, on Election Day I saw a Move-on butt head handing out small copies of the top three lines of the ballot.  It showed Democrat, Republican, and Independent vote for party categories.  The black line was connected to the Democrat option.  Creative little (naughty bit eliminated by author)!

Oh gosh, I forgot to mention this little tidbit.  All city of Milwaukee middle and high schools already issue student photo ID’s.  Not to mention the metal detectors they must traverse daily.  That’s assuming they actually show up for school more than on opening day. 

Mayor Barrett it is time to grab your ears, give a yank and pull your head out of an orifice I won’t mention here.

People Pulling

Sounds to me like The Mayor's head and that orifice you mentioned are one and the same. It might be that pulling on his ears is a form of masturbation. I'd stay clear if he decides to try to separate the two.

Can HE read?

Oh my goodness!

I just learned that Iraqi voters will be required to show TWO forms of ID when they vote on Sunday (including a photo id)! Does ANYONE think that the Iraqi voters who are literally risking their lives to vote are going to worry about being disenfranchised by having to show identification? I think not.

Infomation was taken from the following web site:


http://www.reliefweb.int/rw/RWB.NSF/db900SID/DDAD-692T82?OpenDocument

This is what the site says:

HOW DOES IT WORK?

All Iraqis over 18 years old on Jan. 1 can vote -- perhaps some 15 million of a population of about 27 million. The election register is based on the ration list, a relic of U.N. sanctions.

On Jan. 30, voters must bring two forms of photo identification to their local polling station. After voting, their name is crossed off the register and their thumb marked with indelible ink to prevent them voting again.

There is one national ballot, without constituencies. Voters cast one vote for a list of candidates put forward by a party or coalition
