    I did a quick check of the 2000 vs 2004 vs. 2008 popular vote numbers. 2000 = 101,456,000 votes - Gore 51,000,000 - Bush 50,456,000 2004 = 121,068,000 votes - Bush 62,040,000 - Kerry 59,028,000 2008 = 118,226,000 votes - BOH 62,683,000 - JMC 55,543,000 The post election analysis is going to be interesting. I heard it reported last night that the youth vote did not materialize yet again.

    KXNT AM 840 Las Vegas | January 29,2008 | Seeking the Truth
    KXNT is the local Las Vegas AM station that has Limbaugh, Hannity, Levin ..etc. Up to the Nevada primary, which was January 15, Paul ran several different message radio spots on KXNT on a regular basis. Today, while listening to Rush, I again heard a Ron Paul radio spot. This one was the "Introduction to Ron Paul" type of spot compared to the specific issue, such as, "Tips should be tax free", which was run ad nauseum out here. Is this just campaign incompetence? Surely, that money should be used in the other upcoming primaries. Is he continuing because he...

    Today's edition of the Review Journal says "Poll says Bush has Big Lead". This is the Mason Dickson poll from yesterday. That's great to read but long ago, I promised myself that I will get involved in the Get Out the Vote (GOTV) campaign here in Las Vegas. I have memories seared in my brain from Election 2000, when I lived in Boca Raton, Florida - Ground Zero. I've told countless people since then how I observed the evil, criminal corrupt Democrat Party attempt a coup during those 36 days. They are trying the same thing again here in Nevada....

    At the opening night showing of "Fahrenheit 9/11" at Neonopolis on June 25, one man walked out of the Crown Theater as the screen displayed vivid images of maimed and dead Iraqi citizens. "You people will sit through anything," he shouted to the crowd in the darkened theater before calling the movie the most "intellectually dishonest" two hours of his life. When the 1:55 p.m. showing of the R-rated movie ended at the Regal Cinema Theater the next day, the audience got to their feet and applauded.

    Just heard & felt a huge noise here in Las Vegas. My wife & I felt the house shake. My wife has been through many earthquakes in CA and she said it sounded like a "popper" type of quake. I ran outside & looked around 360 degrees and did not see or hear anything. I looked to the direction of McCarran thinking a plane explosion but nothing there either. Anyone else see or hear anything. It was big and since I work out of my home, I've never heard or felt anything like this in LV.

    First of all, please accept my apology for posting this so late. On October 1, my wife ("FRBI") and I closed on our house in Boca Raton and moved to Las Vegas, NV. The new owners wanted a short closing (26 days!) and therefore, we had to do everything in a very short period of time. We did a quick trip to Las Vegas for house hunting & job hunting, returned home to Boca, found a mover, fixed the roof (hey, it's Florida - all roofs leak!), packed up everything and headed west. Immediately after arriving in "Sin City", we...

    ABDURAHMAN ALAMOUDI is a prominent American Muslim leader, welcomed by presidents and founder of the Muslim chaplain program for the U.S. military. Now he's in jail, caught heading to Syria with $340,000 in cash, money prosecutors believe came from Libya. According to FBI counterterrorism chief Steve Pomerantz, “It's very hard to explain in any innocent way a suitcase full of money going from one terrorist-sponsoring nation to another terrorist-sponsoring nation.” AUDIOTAPE EXAMINED U.S. investigators speculated in court that the money was headed for Hamas or another terror group in Syria.

    Actors Guild Warns Against Blacklisting LOS ANGELES - The entertainment industry must not blacklist people who speak out against war with Iraq, the Screen Actors Guild said. "Some have recently suggested that well-known individuals who express `unacceptable' views should be punished by losing their right to work," the union said in a statement posted Monday on its Web site. "Even a hint of the blacklist must never again be tolerated in this nation," the statement added. The reference was to the Hollywood blacklist of the 1950s, when actors and writers suspected of harboring pro-Communist sentiments were barred from working. "During...

    The Palm Beach County State Attorney's Office will begin investigating about a dozen people accused of voting twice in the November election. Elections Supervisor Theresa LePore is expected to send the State Attorney's Office today evidence of double-voting. LePore would not release the voters' names but said they were of various ages and hometowns. Those voters, including a Palm Beach Post reporter on assignment, face up to five years in prison or a $5,000 fine if convicted. Each had cast an absentee ballot, but also went to their precinct to vote on Election Day, LePore said.

    IT'S GETTING NEAR TO FREEPING TIME IN FLORIDA! The political season is just around the corner. One of the battlegrounds (again!) will be the state of Florida. Janet Reno will be opposing Jeb Bush. El Reno has been quietly campaigning all around the state. At this time, she is concentrating on solidifying her Demonrat base. After all, she still must win the primary. However, all signs down here in Florida indicate that she will be the winner in the Demonrat primary. Very shortly, she will start to persue the rest of the electorate. Conventional wisdom says that she does not ...

(her name did not mean anything to me so I missed it). The local TV was out in force to cover this momentous event! A total of 5 nags from NOW showed up + one guy(?) of an unknown ...

    Delray Beach Medical Center Personnel ^ | October 25, 2001 | Gene McDonald
    There are some things happening down here in Florida that are not being reported in the main stream media. Some of the information that follows is first hand and some is second hand. Keep in mind that rumors and more rumors are flying fast down here in Southern Florida. I am merely giving my fellow freepers a heads up. Yesterday morning at approximately 11:00, a letter was opened in the HR department at Delray Beach Medical Center. Hazmat teams and other emergency personnel arrived at the hospital and shut down the HR department and other adjacent areas. As of 8:00am ...

    It seems more and more Freepers are not posting full articles. This is somewhat understandable with "newbies" by yesterday a 1998 Freeper posted something from the Milwaukee Journal (?) about the Communist Party meeting in that city. In a reply, I referred to the full article posting rule and referenced my displeasure at an oldtimer posting a one sentence and a link. Folks, I have noticed a lot more of these one or two sentence with a link articles being posted lately. It is understandable with the breaking news about Condit and those articles are merely "heads up" type notices ...

I have not heard his reason for doing so but I can't see any reason for doing it at all! Need some background info from around the country FAST. Is this something that is happening around the US? around Florida? Is there some "reason" why this is happening? Is this just some local thing and I am over reacting here? What is going on? Last month, Boy ...
