    The Coach Is Right ^ | February 10, 2014 | Kevin “Coach” Collins
    It’s hard to figure out what to make of the people in this story. Should these people be laughed at or pitied? Recently a group of 25 self-described “Students of Color” held a sit-in to support poor English writing skills. They whined about the “racism” of being offered constructive criticism of their lack of grammar, spelling and punctuation abilities. As products of dysfunctional government schools, many if not all of them have little or no writing skill. Many of them don’t know they have no writing skills. They have been lied to and had their heads patted so often by...

    It’s not often that the confiscation crowd is nakedly honest, but when they think they’re just preaching to the choir, they might forget the heathens are listening, too. That was the case in Sunday’s New York Times column by Maureen Dowd when Connecticut Sen. Chris Murphy blurted out the real goal of the gun grabbers: Getting weapons out of your hands means getting the vote out of your hands, too. “You’re not going to disenfranchise the NRA overnight,” Murphy told Dowd. “Disenfranchise.” This isn’t the usual, misty-eyed “if it will save one life” claptrap; and the speaker isn’t some unshaven...

    1.) Democrats have hired thousands of lawyers and positioned them in voter districts, ready to file suits. 2.) Democrats will work with groups like ACORN, registering non-citizens and convicted felons and encourage them to vote multiple times. They will watch for recent deaths in local obituaries and then vote again using the dead voter’s name. 3.) Democrat leftist pollsters over-sample Democrats to show Obama is way ahead of Romney in local polls. They use flawed methodology from past elections. 4.) Democrats file multiple suits against states that are trying to require proof of voter identification to prove voter citizenship and...

    In Sauk County, there’s a convent, Valley of our Lady Monastery that is inhabited by 18 Cistercian nuns. These nuns take a vow of silence, with their main occupation being the making the communion wafers. I am not making this up, the website couldn’t be better: The majority of these nuns stay at the Monastery their entire life…living the simplest of simple lives. Every election the Town of Sumpter Clerk, Donna Ziegler, drops off 18 ballots so the nuns can vote. She later picks them up, prior to the election in a single, large, sealed envelope—not opening the large...

In February 2008, Fathiyyah Muhammad of Jacksonville, Florida, heard that ACORN was paying people three dollars for each voter they could register. ACORN paid her three dollars for each voter she registered, but Fatiyyah Muhammad says that the group threw out her votes and fired her when she brought them registrations of Republican voters. Fathiyyah Muhammad voted for Obama. “I’m a Republican,” she says, “and this was the first time that I...

Thus, ballots received from these war zones must be disallowed.” Suleman distinguished between these ballots from overseas servicemen and women and those cast by military personnel within the US who could be assumed to have cast their ballots while off-duty and out of uniform. “Besides, these people aren’t likely to be well-informed on...

    In the 2004 presidential race, Democrats cried foul when Republican Secretary of State J. Kenneth Blackwell initially ordered that voter-registration cards be rejected if the paper used wasn't thick enough. Now, Republican John McCain's campaign is complaining that Blackwell's successor, Democrat Jennifer Brunner, has decided that certain absentee-ballot applications should be rejected if a box on the form isn't checked. McCain's camp is worried that potentially thousands of requests for absentee ballots will be rejected and voters forced to reapply -- if they get notice that their application wasn't accepted, said Jon Seaton, McCain's regional campaign manager. At issue is...

    Here’s a plan for 2008. Suppose a Democrat wins a close presidential election. But the House and Senate are still very likely to remain in Republican hands. The GOP could then challenge the electoral vote certification, just like the Democrats did this year. The Republican majorities in the House and Senate could then decertify the electoral votes of narrowly-won blue states (they’d certainly have more grounds for claiming fraud than the Democrats did this year.) A Republican president would thus be elected.Why not? As they’ve demonstrated in 2004, Democrats would certainly do all of the above if they had a...

    Democratic Underground | 12/5/04
    sense that in the last couple of days DUers are coming out of their funk from the recent election... And they are not in a happy mood. They are definitely not in the mood to be f*ked with or to listen to any freeper [bull]. And they are ready to lay down some markers for their Party. They want to see some opposition to these fascists that are sabotaging our democracy. They have had enough of this "bi-partisan" crapola. Even if we must fight from the minority position forever, let us stand on our principles. We would rather fight from...

    From the "American Morning" Show on CNN COMBS: We made them a part of this process, because I'm a part of this community, and I'm also a disenfranchised voter. And my first time voting was, like, 2000. So I know what the talk is inside the community. I know the feeling, the buzz. This is history for us. We will decide. We're the wild card of this election. HEMMER: Why do you say you were disenfranchised four years ago? COMBS: Because politicians, they just didn't pay attention to us. We're part -- I call ourselves the forgotten ones, youth and...

    My daughter is 18 and voting in Boston. She showed up at the polling place to vote when it opened at 7:00. After waiting a half-hour in line she was told she was at the wrong place and sent to another location. She walked to the other location and waited another half-hour to be told she was still at the wrong place and was sent to a third location. By the time she got there the line was too long to allow her to vote and then get to work. My daughter is a registered Republican. She admits her mistake...

    Insurance agent C. Bryant, a poll watcher from Goldwater days, just came in and reminded me of a time when democratic candidates would hold rallies within walking distance of the polling place on election day...firing up the base and reminding them to "just remember two names in the voting booth"...usually the president and a local rep. or senator. In Corrine's case, she would have reminded her constituents to just remember "Gore and Brown"... If you follow the link, you will see a list of third party candidates from the 2000 race, including an old white man, socialist Walt Brown. Almost...

You need to verify your voter registration status in person with your local elections office.   Verify it There is some chance that even if you were properly registered, and even voted in the...

    DELAND -- The NAACP filed a federal voting rights lawsuit Thursday against Volusia County Supervisor of Elections Deanie Lowe, plunging the county into an elections controversy just weeks before the Nov. 2 general election. The suit claims that by having only one early voting site -- in DeLand -- Lowe disenfranchises black voters in eastern Volusia County, where the majority of black residents live. A state law adopted in May requires county elections officials to offer early voting at the Department of Elections office 15 days before an election. Whether to open additional sites is left to local discretion. On...
