    Haven't read this thread since it first came on and I was sent many bad thumbs down from Obama supporters, though I ever mentioned his name or slammed those who are "left of center" politically or far left in the way they choose to see things.

    Arguing will not change anything now. I'm so f'iing happy to know when the election is tomorrow is over tomorrow and these "sides" that have divided us under this adminstration will remain that way or start to coalesce.

    The division of gender, race, sex and ethic background is a political, vote-getting ploy. If that works again, America may wind up balkanized and that would be tragic.

    Want this to be over, so i know how to plan the rest of my life -- economically and to know what I can and cannot do in supposed "freedom".

    Okay...expecting a ton of BAD notifications.

    Let's just pull of the bandaid and get on with it, shall we...whichever side wins or loses. And NOT stay divided as we've become in the last 4 years. That's never good, is it? Blech.

    Big thumbs up from me, sid! I am flipping the tv channel, turning the radio, and putting my fingers in my ears through tomorrow. I can not STAND this anymore.

    Whatever the results, everyone pull up their big boy pants, do their JOBS, and start acting like ADULTS!

    (Oh, I voted Obama, the moderate Republican. I would prefer a Progressive, but no one from that party can get elected.)

    All of my sister-in-laws all devout Catholics use birth control. That concept of Catholics not using birth control went out in the 1970's. It is a silly lame argument that only politicians and Catholic leaders parade out for political gain

    The new COTH upgrade won't let me remove messages to make room to send or receive more. Separate issue.

    Sid, you can e-mail me at adamantane@embarqmail.com since PM's don't work properly.

    A -- I was just trying to let you know that your PMs were full as my last one was kicked back.

    So many of the comments on this thread, reflections of the things expressed on FOX and elsewhere about President Obama have just made me sad.

    I think you are on to something! Let's tax the crap out of people we don't agree with and make them join the 21st century. After we get the Catholics in line let's go after the Amish. The lives those people choose has a negative effect on their own welfare and they shouldn't be allowed to make decisions for themselves--since we know better what their priorities should be.

    Yes, and I have them too. I guess my thinking is that "if you say things that the right wing don't want to have said in public, well that is a good thing". In fact I have a little stalker that comes around to all my posts, even the comical horse posts that disaproves of everything I say including "That's funny". I think the "bad votes from the far right wingers" are good responses.

    You always hear the talk that Republicans want to "suppress the vote", but on election day the stories that float to the top are the ones like the current Philadelphia story. Black Panthers again at the entrance and The Democrats have refused to seat at least 70 court appointed republican poll watchers and are replacing them with democrats and in some instances, black panther folk. Judges are ordering them to seat the court appointed reps. ....to be continued....

    ...from the web...

    A Pennsylvania judge is issuing an order to reinstate Republican election officials across Philadelphia who allegedly were ejected or refused entry by on-site Democratic voting chief judges, GOP officials tell Fox News.
    One Republican official claimed that "just under 70" Republican election officials were blocked from Philadelphia polling sites Tuesday morning by Democrats on site. One of them, the official claimed, "was shoved out of the polling place."
    "For this many inspectors to be ejected from polling places is rare, even for Philadelphia," the official told FoxNews.com.
    Further, one polling site in Philadelphia apparently had a mural of President Obama emblazoned on the wall directly behind the voting machines. The mural, at a local school being used as a polling site, contained the words "change!" and "hope," along with a quote from the president.
    Republicans were drawing attention to the image Tuesday morning, with one Mitt Romney spokesman tweeting: "Voters in Philly's Ward 35 are being forced to cast their ballots next to this."
    Pennsylvania election law states "no person within a polling place may electioneer or solicit votes for any political party, political body, or candidate, nor may any unauthorized written or printed materials be posted within the polling place."
    Elsewhere in the city, a representative from the New Black Panther Party was also spotted outside a polling site. The New Black Panthers stirred controversy in 2008 when members appeared outside a polling site, one of them holding a billy club. The representative seen Tuesday morning was not armed.
    The flap over the election judges, though, was widespread. Republicans claim they are obtaining a series of court orders to seat the so-called election "inspectors," and sheriff's deputies will be available to escort them.

    There is no separating voting to political principles. it is after all, an activity by choice.
    The Amish choose not to drive motor vehicles because of their faith. Does this mean they must promote legislation that YOU may not drive a motor vehicle? Or do you think, "Hey, drive your buggy all you want but don't make it illegal for me to drive a car if I want."

    Orthodox Jews do not eat pork or lobster. Should they promote legislation that NOBODY may eat pork or lobster? Or do you think, "Hey, if you don't want to eat pork, that's fine, but I'll have a bacon egg and cheese." Do you think they are not religious enough because they are not trying to get it put into law that NOBODY may work on the Sabbath?

    Can anyone provide a reasonable explanation as to why the Black Panthers feel the need to hang out in front of multiple polling places?? Why?

    Given the militant history of the organization, do you really have to ask?

    ....from the web...

    This photo, taken by a voter this morning at the Ward 4, Precinct 37 polling place (1212 South Plymouth Court, Chicago), shows an election judge checking in voters while wearing an Obama hat," a source writes. "Chicago's 4th ward is home to President Barack Obama."

    The voter who took the photo says: "Woman in front of me also given an extra ballot."

    And the voter adds that she has in the past been an election observer abroad. "I had greater confidence votes mattered [in a foreign election in a transitioning country] than I did about my own vote today," says the voter.

    Maybe he's there to make sure that the republicans don't riot if Romney isn't elected?

    The Obama hats, paintings on the wall in front of the voting booth, Black Panthers, fighting Voter ID laws, etc, sicken me. It's so obvious what the Obama side is doing
