Big Dan's Big News Mar 31, 2008

No staged audience, this is what happens, what the American people really think of George W. Bush; Hey Rush Limbaugh: WAS BUSH CHEERED? Rightwing propagandists: MAKE SURE YOU IGNORE THIS VIDEO, DON'T MENTION THIS! And this is in Washington D.C.!!!

Bush comes out of his "bubble" and meets reality: A non-staged audience! Bush "booed" @ Washington Nationals opener:

This is a huge story! This is what America thinks of "president" Bush! This should be the #1 story on the national news! But I guarantee you will not see this on ANBCBSNNX! See if ANBCBSNNX "edits out" the BOO's tonight, or if they even show this!

Brad Friedman of "BradBlog":

"The declaration was created as several of us determined it would be helpful to define the cause as specifically and directly as possible. Once it was finalized, I signed it first, in large letters, as the Hancock legend goes, "so that King George can read it without his glasses."

My hope is that anyone --- any person or organization in the fight for clean, fair, honest, accurate democracy --- would both commit to this simply stated mission, and then measure his or her efforts against it."

The Creekside Declaration..."Mission: To encourage citizen ownership of transparent, participatory democracy." - Creekside Declaration, 3/22/08

The ground feels a little soft, but we’re going to stand it. Premise one: Having a fair election — all votes counted, all who are eligible and want to vote allowed to vote — is far, far more important, even in 2008, than who wins. Premise two: Fair elections are not a given. They never have been, but things are worse now than ever before because of a perfect storm, you might say, of factors that have converged in the new millennium: officialdom’s seduction by unsafe, high-tech voting systems; the seizure of power by a party of ruthless true believers who feel entitled to rule and will do anything to win; a polite, confused opposition party that won’t make a stink about raw injustice; and an arrogantly complacent media embedded in the political and economic status quo. The result: Benjamin Franklin’s worst nightmare.

Excellent! Bev Harris of describes "ballot washing": "Archivists know this technique as a document repair method, criminals know it as "check washing." If you have the right chemicals, can you remove votes from ballots, allowing election-riggers to "re-vote" the ballots before they are counted, recounted, or audited? Yes. We have been able to remove votes marked in ink from ballots without leaving a trace. Using this technique, insiders can alter votes on ballots.
