    WASHINGTON― Planned Parenthood announced Friday that it will start registering voters at its clinics, on college campuses, online and at other locations, “regardless of their background, beliefs, or political ideology,” in an effort to get disenfranchised populations more involved in the political process. The non-partisan campaign, called “My Vote, My Voice,” has the potential to reach a lot of people who don’t normally vote in presidential campaigns. Volunteers across 45 states will set up “action” tables outside of Planned Parenthood health centers and other locations in the community to sign people up to vote, educate them about voter ID laws...

    A federal lawsuit alleging widespread confusion over California's presidential primary rules asks that voter registration be extended past Monday's deadline until the day of the state's primary election on June 7. "Mistakes are being made," said William Simpich, an Oakland civil rights attorney who filed the lawsuit. At issue is whether voters understand the rules for the presidential primary, which differ from those governing other elections in California. Unlike statewide primaries -- where voters now choose any candidate, no matter the political party -- the presidential contests are controlled by the parties themselves. Democrats have opened up their primary to...

    Supporters of mandatory gun registration had argued that the police had been calling for this simple measure to increase firearm safety. In Switzerland we register cars. It is odd not to do it for guns whose primary aim is to kill. It would allow us to save lives and avoid family shootings, said Green Party senator Luc Recordon.

Armed men handed out a leaflet on Passover eve telling Jews to register or face confiscation of their property.The Mad Jewess reported: From a commenter at The Mad Jewess: I am able to read that document. What it says is that Jews supported the Junta in Kiev (the Bandera fascists) and are hostile to the Orthodox Republic of Donetsk and its citizens, and therefore must register or be expelled from the Republic and have their property confiscated.

    Gun owners know that registration always leads to confiscation. Joseph Stalins firearms confiscation was a tremendous success for the Socialist state. Under the Tsar, Russia was one of the most heavily armed societies on earth. That all changed when Stalin and the communists took control. Stalin was able to control, starve, punish and imprison a defenseless people after he took their guns. (Zinnfigur)

    Iowa's biggest newspaper is under fire after publishing a map that showed which public school districts have police or security -- and which ones don't. Critics said the Des Moines Register, which quickly pulled the interactive map off of its website, was making it easy for a deranged killer to know where to launch a Sandy Hook-style attack. "What they did yesterday was provide a shopping list for every nut job in Iowa," WHO radio host Simon Conway, who said his phone lines "blew up" as soon as he began discussing the map with his audience, told Fox News Channel....

They endorsed Mitt Romney in the primary, so this was not much of a surprise, said Cutter on ABCs This Week, referring to the influential swing-state papers backing of the GOP candidate. It was a little surprising to read that editorial, because it didn't seem to be based at all in reality, not just in the president's record, but in Mitt Romney's record, Cutter added. It says that he'd reach across the aisle, which he'd do...

The interactive tool enables a far more focused view of the regulatory burden by measuring the growth of regulation by industry. While previous methods provided an idea of the growth of overall regulation, they told nothing about how those regulations affected specific sectors...

Maslack recently proposed a bill to register "non-gun-owners" and require them to pay a $500 fee to the state. Thus Vermont would become the first state to require a permit for the luxury of going about unarmed and assess a fee of $500 for the privilege of not owning a gun Maslack read the "militia" phrase of...

While government authorities said they may seek more charges, some counterintelligence analysts see parallels with other cases against alleged Chinese spies that eventually unraveled. "There's one case after another where senior officials allege serious activities ... and then the case just falls apart and you end with minor-looking charges," Paul Moore, a former China chief analyst for the FBI, said Wednesday.

    Morning Edition, January 24, 2005 For thousands of Iraqis who live in the United States, casting their vote means driving, in some cases, thousands of miles. Detroit, Los Angeles, Chicago, Washington and Nashville are the only polling sites in the U.S. Some critics have said the locations are too few, but for some Iraqis no distance is too far.

    A good friend of mine just sent this to me and...I'm rather beside myself at the sheer amount of hate, hypocricy and insanity that this "article" professes. The fact that any friend of mine (or any person in general, really) could actually agree with any of these rambling, incoherent statements is really just a sign of how looney politics makes people. Apparently we can't quote text from this website ( - a tech site that for some reason dabbles in politics), so you'll have to click the link to see what I'm talking about...I started to refute the claims made...

    Subject: Will you be turned away on November 2nd? This {proposed email} is unfortunately not a hoax or urban legend. Share it with any voters you care about. This is particularly important if you live in a "battleground" state. Register in person Unless you registered to vote in person at an official location, you may not be registered, or you may have a defective registration. 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...
  • Register to Vote for Bush - Compliments of Howard Stern

    09/24/2004 8:56:58 PM PDT · by dolphinator · 3 replies · 384+ views
    If you need a quick / easy way to register to vote (for BUSH), go here and use this link provided by Howard Stern: If you haven't listened to Howard Stern, lately, he's been on a very self-serving, hypocritical quest to oust Bush from office. It's quite comical that he has to hand-hold a particular segment of his audience who he feels will be those required to get rid of Bush by voting for Kerry. Is this a compliment to Kerry to let him know that the ONLY way he will win is to get the votes of those...

    Focus on those who are too indifferent to register, vote LOS ANGELES I'd like to address this to the Undecideds: I'm on to you. You may be fooling everyone else with your little "undecided" act, but you're not fooling me. You know perfectly well whom you're voting for. The only reason you say you're undecided is that it's a cheap ploy to get attention. How do I know? Because I'm the most indecisive person in the world. I set the template, baby, and you're not passing the smell test. You want to see real undecided? Go out to dinner...
