Election Corruption Incidents Surfacing in Ohio

FBI raids the home of a Republican fundraiser who may have been illegally channneling money to the Bush campaign. Found on Toledo Blade.com via Buzz Flash.

And more hard facts on what really happened in Ohio during election 2004. Chilling. Absolutely chilling, but not surprising really. The election 2004 continues to reek of corruption and manipulation.

The entire story can be found here

From Free Press: A long article by Bob Fitrakis "How Blackwell and Petro Saved Bush's Brain: And the rise of the right wing juggernaut in Ohio" Fitrakis discusses how the bitterly contested election results in Ohio have taken on a religious twist. The Bush/Rove Ohio extremists are turning on even conservative Republicans who are not hard core fundamentalists. Fitrakis hopes that the attempts by Ohio's state elders to restore balance and dignity to their state's elections may be the "opening salvo of widespread revulsion against Ohio's right wing corruption and abuse that gave the 2004 election to George W. Bush."

Fitrakis reveals that a minster who Blackwell once applauded for his "honor to public service" is under scrutiny because on November 2, 2004, voting machines were transferred from poor, inner city urban areas to this minster's church.

Some excerpts from the article.

The mainstream press is silent no more

Still, the battle over the bizarre 2004 election results in Ohio continues to rage. Karl Rove and George W. Bush, with the acquiescence of some Democratic Party leaders, are orchestrating a cover-up as, simultaneously, shocking new evidence is emerging and a few mainstream media sources are beginning to report the story of a possible election theft.

A headline in the Akron Beacon Journal, for instance, screams: “Analysis Points to Election ‘Corruption’: Group Says Chance of Exit Polls Being So Wrong in ’04 Vote is One-in-959,000.” This report, signed by 12 statistical scholars and social scientists, should have sparked more interest in a nation purporting to be “the world’s greatest democracy.”

The Irish Times noted that, “The internet is still flickering with allegations of a conspiracy to steal the election, fueled by the discrepancies between exit polls that predicted Kerry would win by a margin of 3% and the official results which saw Bush win by a margin of 2.5%.”

Investigative reporter Christopher Hitchens’ article “Ohio’s Odd Numbers” in Vanity Fair stated, “Given what happened in that key state on Election Day 2004, both democracy and common sense cry out for a court-ordered inspection of its new voting machines.”

Prior to the election, Paul Krugman, warned in a New York Times article: “It’s election night, and early returns suggest trouble for the incumbent. Then, mysteriously, the vote count stops and observers from the challenger’s campaign see employees of a voting-machine company, one wearing a badge that identifies him as a county official, typing instructions at computers with access to the vote-tabulating software.

When the count resumes, the incumbent pulls ahead. The challenger demands an investigation. But there are no ballots to recount, and election officials allied with the incumbent refuse to release data that could shed light on whether there was tampering with the electronic records.

This isn’t a paranoid fantasy. It’s a true account of a recent election in Riverside County, California . . . .”

The Seattle Post-Intelligencer reported that presidential candidate John Kerry’s wife Teresa Heinz Kerry told a Seattle luncheon group that it is “very easy to hack into the mother machines,” in reference to the commonly used central computer tabulators that count the votes on Election Day.

Robert Koehler of Tribune Media Services published perhaps the best piece entitled “The Silent Scream of Numbers: The 2004 election was stolen, will someone please tell the media?”

President Jimmy Carter actually mentioned the “f” word – fraud – recently in the Washington Post in reference to reforming the U.S. election system.

And even John Kerry finally acknowledged the obvious when he returned to the site of his concession speech in Boston and told the League of Women Voters, “Last year too many people were denied the right to vote; too many who tried to vote were intimidated.”

Hello fellow fisherman,

Did you know that 16% of the U.S. population goes fishing at least 16 days a year?

Did you also know that over 75% of the nations fishermen do not fish during "prime time"; fish feeding hours?

Those precious few moments before twilight can be absolutely magical. Even up until 11pm at night, the largest predators of any species feed ravenously.

Don't believe me? Check out Daniel Eggertsen's story, and a picture of a couple of his catches here : "Evening Secrets plus more"

I want you to do me a favor and try it out so I can see what you think of it, and if it works for you as well as it did for me.

You will be one of the first to try it out.

Gone Fishin',

Neil

Everyone has days when they are down, worn out, general anxiety and just not feeling all that happy.

That's OK, you need to have days like this, otherwise how would you know when you are happy. You need to have something to contrast your happiness with. What is black without white?

Even though you know that sadness (general anxiety) is a part of life, let's try to make it a small part of life.

With that said, here are a few tips to help you feel better when you are feeling down in the dumps. They are easy to do, easy to practice every day and they work!

1. Stand up straight, sit up straight. When your body is in alignment your energy can flow and when your energy is flowing freely, you can flow.

2. Smile! Yes, just smile. Easy to do and effective.

3. Repeat positive affirmations. Things like "I feel good", "Positive energy flows through my body", "I see the good in all".

4. Listen to some music that you like. It doesn't have to be anything specific, just something you enjoy. Certain types of music work better than others, but experiment and see what works for you. Studies have shown that Classical music and new age music work best.

5. Take some time out for yourself, relax and read a book, do something for yourself.

6. Meditate. Meditation is an excellent habit to develop. It will serve you in all that you do. If you are one who has a hard time sitting still, then try some special meditation CDs that coax your brain into the meditative state. Just search for "Meditation music" on Google or Yahoo and explore.

Our outside work is simply a reflection of our inside world. Remember there is no reality just your perception of it. Use this truth to your advantage. Whenever you are sad, realize that it is all in your mind and you do have the power to change your perception.

These tips will lift you up when you are down, but don't just use them when you are sad or general anxiety . Try and practice them everyday, make them a habit. You will be surprised at how these simple exercises will keep the rainy days away.

On a final note, if you are in a deep depression that you can't seem to shake, please go see a doctor. This is your life and don't take any chances. general anxiety
