We Can Only Hope!

This looks interesting, but would probably just lead to a suplus in Canadian bacon

Of course, the chances are slim to none, but it’d be well deserved and fun to watch.

The Moral Choice?

Posted by pete on 3rd November 2004

I heard one exit poll that said that for voters where morals were the primary reason for chosing a candidate, they chose Bush.

Bush?

Morals?

Really? Sure, he talks about his faith, but what about his actions? Iraq? His administration’s constant attempts at raping the environment? His screwing American citizens for the profit of drug and oil companies? A pattern of hiding the actions of his administration? Morals?!?!

Please. Is the American electorate really that stupid?

100 Cups of Coffee

With respect to the speed of this election resolving. (For my Futurama-ignorant friends.)

The Good Side?

Posted by pete on 3rd November 2004

As one of my cow-orkers suggested, the good side of Bush winning (if he wins) would be that he’d be stuck with the responsibility of cleaning up the mess he made in Iraq.

Slow Speed Car Wreck?

Posted by pete on 3rd November 2004

It’s starting to look like I’m watching a slow-speed car crash. The election’s steadly slipping away from Kerry. I just don’t understand how thinking people can vote for Bush. There’s the normal laundry-list of his failings… Iraq, the economy, terrorism (I believe he’s made us less secure), tool of big-oil/industry, power-grabbing, closed administration, civil liberties, and international good will. He’s ruined America in the world and he’s ruining it for our future. He stands up there, talks like an idiot, shows some bravado, and the average citizen eats it up, even as he’s f-bombing them over in the pocketbook and sending in the FBI to search their house for evidence of thought crimes, soothing them with the words, “Trust me,” providing no evidence to the contrary. Come on people, he’s lying to you!

Don’t even get me started on Congress…

What’s wrong with these people? Doesn’t intelligence and reality matter over stubborn determinism and denial? Even when it’s obvious that Bush is only slightly smarter than a rock? *sigh*

It’s scary to think about what Bush might try to ram through Congress this next term without having to worry about re-election.

John Titor – Time Traveler

Posted by pete on 1st November 2004

I remember reading about this guy about a year ago. It’s quite interesting reading, even though it’s probably fiction. With the recent closeness of this year’s presidential election, I figured I’d post this.

The Votemaster FAQ
Who are You?

So it would seem that the electoral-vote.com “votemaster” is none other than Andrew Tanenbaum. All my comp-sci peeps know who I’m taking about.

Halloween

Posted by pete on 1st November 2004

Yesterday was the first time Thing One went trick-or-treating. Or, as she was saying, “trick-or-meat”ing. She was dressed up as a pirate in a costume made by her mother. We taught her some things to say. “Arrrr,” “Trick-or-treat, matey,” and “Gimme some booty.” Being the good girl that she is, she changed the latter phrase to, “Gimme some booty, please.”

Overall, it was a fun experience. Everyone thought she was soooo cute (Of course she was!) and got a laugh from what she was saying. The only down-side was that she got tired before we got home and got a bit cranky and wanted to be carried. The great thing about her crankiness now though, is that she can be easily distracted. In this case, it was with the mini-maglite I brought with me.

There were some places in the neighborhood that tried hard to scare-up their place. None were as scary as this one place around the corner and down near the community swimming pool. They had a zombie out in front of the house, holding a sign saying, “Four More Years.” Now _that’s_ scary. (And maybe a good comment on the typical Bush voter. ;) )
