Did you know....
1.  80% of all votes in America are counted by only two companies:  Diebold and ES&S.

http://www.onlinejournal.com/evoting/042804Landes/042804landes.html

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Diebold


2.  There is no federal agency with regulatory authority or oversight of the U.S. voting machine industry.

http://www.commondreams.org/views02/0916-04.htm

http://www.onlinejournal.com/evoting/042804Landes/042804landes.html


3.  The vice-president of Diebold and the president of ES&S are brothers.

http://www.americanfreepress.net/html/private_company.html

http://www.onlinejournal.com/evoting/042804Landes/042804landes.html


4.  The chairman and CEO of Diebold is a major Bush campaign organizer and donor who wrote in 2003 that he was "committed to helping Ohio deliver its electoral votes to the president next year."

http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2004/07/28/sunday/main632436.shtml

http://www.wishtv.com/Global/story.asp?S=1647886


5.  Republican Senator Chuck Hagel used to be chairman of ES&S.  He became Senator based on votes counted by ES&S machines.

http://www.onlinejournal.com/evoting/031004Fitrakis/031004fitrakis.html


6.  Republican Senator Chuck Hagel, long-connected with the Bush family, was recently caught lying about his ownership of ES&S by the Senate Ethics Committee.

7.  Senator Chuck Hagel was on a short list of George W. Bush's vice-presidential candidates.

http://www.businessweek.com/2000/00_28/b3689130.htm

http://theindependent.com/stories/052700/new_hagel27.html


8.  ES&S is the largest voting machine manufacturer in the U.S. and counts almost 60% of all U.S. votes.

http://www.essvote.com/HTML/about/about.html

http://www.onlinejournal.com/evoting/042804Landes/042804landes.html


9.  Diebold's new touch screen voting machines have no paper trail of any votes.  In other words, there is no way to verify that the data coming out of the machine is the same as what was legitimately put in by voters.

http://www.commondreams.org/views04/0225-05.htm

http://www.itworld.com/Tech/2987/041020evotestates/pfindex.html


10.  Diebold also makes ATMs, checkout scanners, and ticket machines, all of which log each transaction and can generate a paper trail.

http://www.commondreams.org/views04/0225-05.htm

http://www.diebold.com/solutions/default.htm


11.  Diebold is based in Ohio.

http://www.diebold.com/aboutus/ataglance/default.htm


12.  Diebold employed 5 convicted felons as consultants and developers to help write the central compiler computer code that counted 50% of the votes in 30 states.

http://www.wired.com/news/evote/0,2645,61640,00.html

http://portland.indymedia.org/en/2004/10/301469.shtml


13.  Jeff Dean was Senior Vice-President of General Election Systems when it was bought by Diebold.  Even though he had been convicted of 23 counts of felony theft in the first degree, Jeff Dean was retained as a consultant by Diebold and was largely responsible for programming the optical scanning software now used in most of the United States.

14.  Diebold consultant Jeff Dean was convicted of planting back doors in his software and using a "high degree of sophistication" to evade detection over a period of 2 years.

http://www.blackboxvoting.org/bbv_chapter-8.pdf


15.  None of the international election observers were allowed in the polls in Ohio.

http://www.globalexchange.org/update/press/2638.html

http://www.enquirer.com/editions/2004/10/26/loc_elexoh.html


16.  California banned the use of Diebold machines because the security was so bad.  Despite Diebold's claims that the audit logs could not be hacked, a chimpanzee was able to do it!  (See the movie here:  http://blackboxvoting.org/baxter/baxterVPR.mov.)

http://wired.com/news/evote/0,2645,63298,00.html

http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/4874190


17.  30% of all U.S. votes are carried out on unverifiable touch screen voting machines with no paper trail.

http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2004/07/28/sunday/main632436.shtml


18.  All -- not some -- but all the voting machine errors detected and reported in Florida went in favor of Bush or Republican candidates.

19.  The governor of the state of Florida, Jeb Bush, is the President's brother.

http://www.tallahassee.com/mld/tallahassee/news/local/7628725.htm

http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/articles/A10544-2004Oct29.html


20.  Serious voting anomalies in Florida -- again always favoring Bush -- have been mathematically demonstrated and experts are recommending further investigation.

Another Offering, two this time. A quote from Ken Babbs and a song from the zen tricksters again. Enjoy (PS, I was at the show in the link)

intro to Babbs Quote :

Last Saturday night before the Hunter Thompson maelstrom hit I did a gig in Eugene with the Zen Tricksters. It was a small place didn't even have a stage, we were right on the floor with the fans blowing air in our faces from their encouraging shouts and it was super duper. Here's what I did:


How does your expereience
and the prankster outlook
teach you to deal with the
ever increasing crap that
flows from our leaders
I was asked and replied
recognize it for the
bullshit that will survive
four more years in
any unrecognizable form
remembering rome fell
but Italy remains so
fly away fly away
our national bird
swoop down and
pluck the patriot's hat.
-Ken Babbs  :jester:

ARISE


Call it an urge-call it a change of scene The boy walks alone in the heat of the day A virgin dreams, A tenderfoot schemes The mountain is huge but it stands in the way

Call it his fate-call it a change of heart The boy tests his will on the face of the stone A climbers stance, a daredevil dance By leaving his mark he makes it his own

Chorus: Take heed my friend for the hour is at hand The top of the hourglass has run out of sand The waiting is over-the voice is clear AWAKEN, ARISE for someday is here Call it good will-call it a change of luck The boy stays alive by the seat of his pants The wings unfurl, the talons curl His guardian angel leaves nothing to chance

Call it a day-call it a change in wind The boy stands amazed at the foot of a cloud A taste of the prize, the light in his eyes His body is tired but his heart, it is proud

Calico Kahlia come tell me the news
Calamity's waiting for a way to get to her
Rosy red and electric blue
I bought you a paddle for your paper canoe

Say you'll come back when you can
Whenever your airplane happens to land
Maybe I'll be back here too
It all depends on what's with you

"central compiler computer code" - They're just using big words to sensationalize and scare people.  Just like "they" do with drugs. :nonono:

What should happen is you should have your vote sent to your address so you can verify the veracity.  That's just for starters, of course.
