Kvatch Kvetches - It's All About Elections Stupid!
While the MSM was focused on the Iraq Study Group, a whole different federal advisory panel was busy rejecting a recommendation that states should only use voting machines whose results could be independently verified. Too burdensome for state elections boards, according to some of the members.
Guess restoring the public's confidence in elections is less important than inconveniencing the states.
Republican congressional leaders decided yesterday not to bring to the floor a bill giving the District a full voting member of the House...
Yes indeed. We certainly wouldn't want those uppity D.C. residents getting a say in whether or not we continue to treat the District like a Congressional fiefdom.
Riverside County, California, Supervisor Jeff Stone laid down the gauntlet to Election Integrity advocates... offering to bet them "a thousand to one" they can't hack into the county's electronic voting machines made by Sequoia Voting Systems.
Now there's a bet worth taking. Especially when you consider that the machines have already been hacked...numerous times. Where's my bookie?
And that guy in Riverside County better have a bundle saved up!:)
Have a great frog weekend!
Gosh, silly me. I thought that was part of the job of state election boards, to make sure that these machines... oh, never mind. It's not about verifying, it's about winning at any cost. My bad.
As for the idiot in Riverside... I imagine that his advisors are telling him just how stupid it was for him to open his big fat mouth.
I saw a car the other day with a DC license plate, and the motto on the plate is "Taxation without representation". That is just fucking awesome.
thanks for the news updates..
Personally, I like the big electro-mechanical lever machines we used to use in Texas a couple of decades ago.
That would be hilarious
I would love to hack in, but I can barely keep my site running. maybe I can get someone to hack it by proxy
( hey Kvatch this November I got to use my first Diebold- are ya telling me my vote might not have been counted???oh say it ain't so ?....I am so shocked...really)
Kvatch, place a bet or two for me? We're in the money... we're in the money... !
As for the our favorite Riverside County Sup., I can't find anything that says he's actually willing to follow through on his challenge.
My area of expertise is computer security, and it's a problem that I'd love to tackle myself if it weren't for the fact that the door prize for hacking is now 25 years in the federal pen--courtesy of the USA Patriot Act.
Thanks for the kind words about my art.
