Cliff and I cast our votes around 11:30 AM. Usually 300 is considered a good turnout for our little polling place. Number 300 cast a vote right behind us, and the polls don't close till 7 PM.

Get your vasoline ready & guns ready to turn in if'n he wins . The USA will then be a laughing stalk . Go Bush !

"and get ready to turn in your guns".

I guess we have to decide at that point weather we will obey the law or not. I will be one who will not. I'd rather be an armed criminal then an unarmed citizen.

Perhaps it will be time for another revolution. The first one did the job for the last 228 years. If the next one sets things to right for half that it will be worth it.

You should be ashamed. John F"ing" Kerry is a true sportsman. Didn't you hear him telling how he used to go crawling around on his belly through the woods with a shotgun hunting deer? Why, that's a true sportsman!!!


PS Go Bush!

You must be a self-employed person. No blue collar or white-collar worker that works for someone else would vote for bush if they had a lick of smarts. George bush has lost more jobs than any president has since Hoover. He was the first person sworn into office with a criminal record. He is trying to take away our overtime pay. Organized labor has gone backwards in the last four years. George bush is defiantly not a friend of the working man and woman. I do not have enough time to type the rest of his misdeeds.

I've worked on every side. I have done everything from burger flipper and grave digger and have also been self employed and had my own employees. I have also been in a Union and a member of management.

Presidents and the government in general do nearly nothing to create jobs. About all government can do is keep taxes and regulations to a minimum which will stimulate job creation. The government can't "create" jobs unless they are government ones. And speaking as one who has spent far too much time on the inside of government bureaucracy the last thing we need is more government employees. One of the few things Bush did domestically that I can actually applaud him for is the excellent job he did in cutting taxes and regs. enough to soften the recession the he inherited from the Clinton admin. A recession that was on track to be a much more severe than it ended up being.

As a former Union member I can say that for the most part Unions have become little more than shakedown outfits with unabashed socialist/globalist/communist leanings. They steal Union dues and contribute them to causes and candidates you don't agree with. In most of the places I worked at the Union was doing nothing more than protecting lazy and incompetent employees. Come contract time they usually made totally unrealistic demands and sabotage plant operations at every opportunity. They would have screaming fits over 5 dollar co-pays on prescriptions, 15 dollar doctor visit co-pays and gasp and increase of over a 5 dollar a week premium increase premiums for family coverage. Keep in mind they were paying a grand total of 50 dollars a month for a Cadillac health plan. To the modern Union it is more about advancing a radical leftist agenda than protecting the employees from unfair practices. It isn't 1925 and they aren't fighting for the little guy they are multi billion dollar shakedown crews who have pretty much outlived their usefulness. I say that coming from a formerly Union family, formerly Democrat background and as a former union officer.

John Kerry is a friend of of the people with their hands out wanting money placed into it or the government to come right some imagined injustice or support their lazy hides in some other way. He is also a friend of the radical left and a darling of the globalist crowd at the UN. He has a deep seated hatred for the US military and those serving in it. He has contempt for middle America and shows it by parading around in hunter garb and in a carhartt jacket and claiming to espouse traditional values. He thinks the hicks and hayseed set (of which I am a proud member) are too stupid to check out his radical leftist voting record. Just like his photo op eating at Wendy's. That east coast snob wouldn't deign to lower himself to eat at Wendy's with the serfs unless it was to fool voters into thinking he is something he is not. Indeed after he and his entourage had made a show of eating at Wendy's like every day Joes they ordered out from Nikola’s Restaurant at the Newburgh Yacht Club (fancy place) The gourmet meals to go included shrimp vindallo, grilled diver sea scallops, prosciutto, wrapped stuffed chicken, and steak salad. The meals came to about $200.

He is a fake. A phony. And a liar. More importantly he is dangerous. Truly a wolf in sheep's clothing. Let's hope the sheep send the wolf back to beacon hill or one of the other dozen or so mansions his wife owns.
