The New Thugees

Sunday afternoon, as Debbie and I were exiting the Ventura Fairgrounds after the Highland Games, we saw a table set up in the walkway toward the parking lot. A sign saying, "Register to Vote. Democrat." There were two young men standing by, cheap ball points in hand, waiting to help their victims register.


In the Stalag, it's required that anyone collecting voter registrations not discriminate as to the party choice of the registrant. I participated in a registration drive once, to get the Libertarian Party on the ballot, while working on John Hospers' campaign. At the time, we were pointedly admonished that we must register people in whatever party they wished, and not specifically advocate for our party. That proved not to be much of a problem for me, since I usually registered folks at libertarian functions.

Thus, to my knowledge, what the gentlemen at this table was doing is illegal.

I said to Debbie as we passed, "Must be some of those ACORN crooks." in a loud voice as I pointed in their direction. "If you register in any other party, they'll trash the form instead of turning it in."

The guys at the table said nothing, but stared in my direction as we passed, not smiling.

It's already pretty much a foregone conclusion that B Hussein will carry the Stalag, so those two guys won't matter much. You see far more Obama bumper stickers in the Stalag than McCain stickers, but that's probably caused by the fact that Democrats will key your car or break your windshield if it has a McCain sticker.

Here comes the new boss, same as the old boss.

Warm regards,

Col. Hogan

They will also remove signs from your yard or from esplanades which show support for the opposition. They have even been caught cutting tires on vehicles used to transport opposition voters to the polls.

And yet many people out there are unwilling to let such behavior put them off voting for these totalitarian slimeballs. Don't ask me what'll make em' change their minds cos i really don't know.

It's all over the place, Col Hogan. Check this out.

Acorn even advertises it

I'm less concerned that Obama will likely win (not much less) than that these tactics are allowed to go on with little opposition. Even McCain's staff doesn't say much.

Stalag California is pretty much already in Obama's bag. When you see Bentleys and high-end Mercedes with Obama stickers, you know that this state is an intellectual cesspool.

The GOP's penchant for nominating weak candidates makes me wonder whose side they're on. Perhaps someone could check the bumper stickers on upper-level GOP members' cars.

This is part of the reason the thought of just not voting keeps creeping back into my mind. The only thing that stops it right now is Palin's relatively healthy attitude toward guns and self defense.

McCain doesn't seem to be much other than just an older, white Obama, who happens to have been in the military.

I think the GOP is going away.
