I Hate OJ but the KKK's Okay!


I tuned into a radio show hosted by "conservative" Michael Savage a week or so before Thanksgiving. It so happened that I caught another classic racist rant in which he commanded "middle Easterners" in the US to take their smelly selves back to Lebanon. This is not the only package of racist statements this American pulse has publicly and pompously delivered.

Savage alleges that Council of Conservative Citizens' member (“CofCC/CCC”) Trent Lott’s endorsement of Strom Thurmond’s 1948 presidential candidacy were “innocent comments”. He tags Lott's thin skinned Congressional Black Caucus critics as “a lynch mob”. The irony here is that Storm Thurmond's voting record was pro lynching during the 1948 presidential election. So why miscategorize a group of black assemblymen while protecting a bigot?



p style="TEXT-INDENT: 0.5in">So while my family was enjoying a stellar T-Giving dinner, my mind was filled with thoughts of deceptive, racist, lawmaking, senators and the influential talk radio hosts who defend them. Want to know why? If it is important to murder extremists who live 10,000 miles away from this land, an opinion many Americans hold dear, how much more important is it to bring to justice the extremists who live in this land?

Bob Barr for example. A US House of Representative of the 7th District of Georgia, from 1995 to 2003; Barr is also a member of the Council of Concerned Citizens AKA the CCC. This white separatist group advances its ideology by sowing a seed of resentment inside of the hearts and minds of borderline prejudice whites with respect to issues like black-on-white crime and non-white immigration.

Mississippi Governor Haley Barbour has also been a proponent of the CCC. Former Exalted Cyclops of the Matoaka, West Virginia chapter (Klanton) of the Ku Klux Klan Robert Carlyle Byrd is currently a senior Senator in VA.

Is it not much more important to keep known Klansman out of political power than it is to kill Jaber A. Elbaneh? I mean, why are so many white Americans disgusted with nonsensical OJ Simpson blindfolds? I mean they hate that dude like he killed the white Eve. If you don't like a man because you think he is a murderer, I get that. But make sure you spread your disdain to all people who might be murderers. Think critically my Caucasian brothers and sisters. Who is more dangerous; An ex running back who might have murdered two people or a racist Senator who is a potential presidential candidate?

Juice will never have an opportunity to enact laws. People of all colors can't stand the sight of him. But what about Senator Byrd? Somehow many senaster senators manage to distance themselves from their racist acts with little effort. Almost as though the American public ignores white supremacy - or quietly cherishes it as an unwritten qualification for powerful political positions (I shutter to think). All the while ill hearted, influential, radio hosts, and politicians mold the minds of America's youth to hate.

I mean think about this. "We the people" are angry, livid, with OJ Simpson and invisable terrorists but are okay with allowing a "former" Klansman to become a senator! I'm appalled and infuriated by this unmitigated hypocrisy and I pray you are too.

As my signature states: If it really were a "war on terror", they would arrest the KKK.

Machines don't Count but your Vote still does


With another election scheduled for 11/7 (and with all the drama surrounding the two previous elections), it is reasonable to scrutinize the integrity of the vote count. Many reputable media and political members have questioned the legitimacy of recent elections. This healthy skepticism derives from the proven security glitches common to paperless machines.

Diebold, a company this post seeks to further discredit, engineers many of your ATM machines. Ever get a receipt from an ATM machine? Funny how they can construct thousands of ATM machines complete with two kinds of paper yet their voting machines can't hold a single spool.


Election Systems and Software is one of the two largest voting machine companies in the US. The ten year old company has counted over 50% of U.S. ballots since '96. The company's brief history has been littered with intrigue. In 1996, former ES&S CEO Chuck Hagel's opportunistic resignation favorably positioned his former company to count the votes for his first senatorial campaign. Naturally, in an "amazing upset" Chuck Hagel was victorious. Despite that apparently rigged election, ES&S's glaring shortcomings did not take center stage until the 2000 elections; where a bevy of absurd errors occurred in their machines nationwide.

Many precincts would have been better off using a standard $4.00 calculator versus Election Systems' pricey "software". In some precincts there were more votes counted than number of ballots cast. Can you imagine having not only your vote counted; but your eight year old son and his imaginary friend as well? It happened in San Francisco.

Western Addition typifies this somewhat normal (when it comes to ES&S) abnormality. In polling place 2214 the city counted 416 ballots, but only 362 were cast. Can you say, fraud-u-lent?

Diebold is another questionable voting machine company. (By the way, we have got to find shorter nomenclature for this type of company. What about - VMCs? Okay, maybe not; but if I have to type the phrase voting machine com--- again, I'm gonna develop carpal tunnel syndrome; another title that's too long.)

Chairman of the board and CEO, Walden "Wally" O'Dell, raised over $100,000 for the Bush reelection campaign. O'Dell’s pledge prior to the ’04 election was this, "to helping Ohio deliver its electoral votes to the President". Now I don't know about you Wally; but at my job we call that conflict of interest.

A public, or private, pledge by the CEO of one of the nations largest VMCs (it'll catch on) to deliver thumbs-ups to a specific candidate wreaks of chicanery. But this isn't the only smoking gun. Click on the blue tools below for further study with reputable tour guids.
