12 Days to Vote

Thirteen days, if you're a Democrat.


Here are some election-related blog posts and news items worth your time:

Intellectual Froglegs Voters Guide.  Be sure to listen to his list of "before the Democrats were elected..."


American Voter Guide 2014 (Video 1) from Intellectual Froglegs on Vimeo.


Sarah Hoyt lives in Colorado and calls "SHENANIGANS" at the 2012 election and this coming election.  She also shares a leaflet left on her doorstep.
This is not a banana republic.  Banana republics have more voting security. 


James O'Keefe of Project Veritas was recently in Colorado and explains more about the mail-in ballots, potential for fraud, and active efforts to commit fraud.  His latest video - excellent:




The Washington Post's blog actually has this headline:  9 percent of likely 2014 voters are ‘enthusiastic’ about President Obama
. . . while it's well understood that Obama's unpopularity is driving GOP enthusiasm, we haven't really studied the inverse -- i.e. just how little Obama's presidency is motivating Democrats to vote.

There is a way to run an election without fraud:  combine government identification with ink.  Which party is standing in the way of this reform?


Graphs of the Day

over at LibertyWorks:

Labor Participation Rate:


Remember when looking at the graph above, the Democrats took over Congress in January 2007...

Deficits by Presidential term:


It is unfortunate that the only people smart enough to understand these graphs already vote Republican.   Until there is a graph of free stuff, Democrat voters will continue to avoid graphs in favor of feelings and emotions.  And envy.

IOTW - "The Number You Have Dialed Has Been Changed"


 Our comrades over at I Own The World - Admin Girl, BFH, Cardigan, Claudia, Dr. Tar, Irony Curtain and Mr. Pinko - have moved their site.  They are now IOTW Report

Same writers, same creative contributors.  Here is some of their recent work:


The IOTW Report crowd are some of the finest Commie Obama Hat evangelists.  They understand sarcasm, mockery, communism, and conservative ideals.  If you're not in this crowd, click over there and get started. 

We wish them good luck with the new site.  

Ebola 4-Pack. Post #8

A series of image posts with four Ebola images each.  These are images found at the blogs at the left in our Blogroll, images shared with us over FB, or screenshots.  New posts will be published at noon everyday until I run out of images.

The date range for these images: Oct 16.





Canada - Terror Target

A Canadian soldier was murdered yesterday in a terror attack.  Had it occurred in the US, we'd be hearing Obama explain it away as "workplace violence."  Luckily for the late Cpl. Nathan Cirillo, his family and the Canadians he served, his government doesn't see terrorism as an excuse to downplay and spin the news.

Rest in Peace, Cpl. Nathan Cirillo:

No Longer MIA

Our comrade, Mikhail, came to visit a few days ago, hence the drop in blog posts. 

Any rumors of my demise were greatly exagerated.

I'll be back up to speed shortly, just as soon as I come down from the 3-day cigar marathon high....

I just found this at 90 Miles.  The other Karl...


The other Karl was a bum.

Perspective: Ebola

If we mapped each of our reactions to the Ebola scare from the center out, it'd look like the spokes on a bicycle wheel.  Most aren't paying attention, many have full confidence in the government to contain it, many also see the disease failing to find hosts in a cleaner and neater US society, and some are freaked out with thoughts of society break-down coming from disease plus fear.

The answer is in there somewhere. 

Until we know, here are four sources I would suggest to any open-minded comrade.  The underlying message: optimism is warranted, but everyone should assess, prepare and make a contingency plan.

First, Bill Whittle, who suggests fear of Ebola is worst than the disease:



And the three best articles on the subject I've seen yet:

Weekly Standard: Six Reasons to Panic
Ol Remus: The Ebola Farce
Raconteur: Surfing USA

I hope this helps.
