Questions On Election Integrity

There is mounting evidence that something criminal occured with the election on Nov 2nd, 2004. Without going into too much diatribe, I'll let the below do most of the explanations as they are quite capable. That said, after much consideration, one doesn't have to be a conspiracy hack to note that there are some VERY crooked things going down and it goes beyond the Kerry concession based on 'not enough votes.' It looks much more widespread than Ohio and enough to wwarrant a recount in that state. If voting and elections are so central to our democracy, why does it seem like a team of unnaccountable teenagers set everything up? This is something we should not be embarrassed asking questions about and demanding accountability on. Not doing so would be detrimental to our Democracy in question.

Please read below...

First and foremost would be Bev Harris' Black Box Voting website, this is the homebase for all current challenges against this election. http://blackboxvoting.org/ I encourage you to read throughout the entire page, especially the information about system verification below the newest update. As well, i encourage you to to donate to the cause, no matter the amount.

Second would be Greg Palast's article on voter purges and exit polls and Kerry victory. http://www.tompaine.com/articles/kerry_won.php

A great article on the mishaps in Ohio, constanly updated with new breaking informaiton.

There is a current drive to get this information into mainstream media, no one is touching it with a ten foot pole. Contact black box voting if you can be of assistance. Please forward this around and let's hear your opinions on the evidence. Only Keith Olberman has said anything about it...

"NEW YORK - Here's an interesting little sidebar of our system of government confirmed recently by the crack Countdown research staff: no Presidential candidate's concession speech is legally binding. The only determinants of the outcome of election are the reports of the state returns boards and the vote of the Electoral College. Thus the majority of the media has yet to touch the other stories of Ohio (the amazing Bush Times Ten voting machine in Gahanna) or the sagas of Ohio South: huge margins for Bush in Florida counties in which registered Democrats outnumber registered Republicans 2-1, places where the optical scanning of precinct totals seems to have turned results from perfect matches for the pro-Kerry exit poll data, to Bush sweeps." The entire piece here: http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/6210240/

There is LOTS AND LOTS of strange info coming out of OHIO, do your best to inform yourself about what is going on and let other people know. This isn't nitpicking, strange things are afoot that are larger than a simple red herring. Please leave any new links or information in the responses. All the links will lead you to places were discussions are underway which you can join and plenty of information and link jumps to much more evidence. Inform Yourself and Demand Accountability!!!

First Avenue Has Closed

Yes, sadly it is TRUE. First Avenue closed it's doors today indefinately. Despite its up's and down's, it truly was one of the most important institutions for musical development in the last 30 years. It's scope went beyond the realm of just 'going to a show,' it developed and nutured many specific communities around the twin cities. Please share your thoughts and feelings about this and what First Avenue has meant to you over the years. It would be a nice time for some reflection.

And GO VOTE NOW...
