Those Men Behind The Curtain, Again

PAY…NO…ATTENTION…

Election officials in Franklin County, Ohio are reportedly stumped over what one maintenance worker found in a dilapidated downtown Columbus warehouse earlier this week.

According to sources, Randall Prince, a Columbus-area electrical worker, was doing a routine check of his companies wiring and electrical systems when he stumbled across approximately one dozen black, sealed ballot boxes filled with thousands of Franklin County votes for Hillary Clinton and other Democrat candidates.

“No one really goes in this building. It’s mainly used for short-term storage by a commercial plumber,” Prince said.

So when Prince, who is a Trump supporter, saw several black boxes in an otherwise empty room, he went to investigate. What he found could allegedly be evidence of a massive operation designed to deliver Clinton the crucial swing state.

Meet The Young Virginia Democrat That Registered 19 Dead People To Vote In Virginia

Via Billy

Harrisonburg Votes

Just yesterday we wrote about an FBI investigation into potential voter fraud in the critical swing state of Virginia after it was revealed that 19 dead people had recently been re-registered to vote (see “FBI Investigating More Dead People Voting In The Key Swing State Of Virginia“).  While the Washington Post caught wind of the investigation, it was not known who was behind the operation…until now.

Meet, Andrew Spieles, a student at James Madison University, and apparently “Lead Organizer” for HarrisonburgVOTES.  According to the Daily News-Record, Spieles confessed to re-registering 19 deceased Virginians to vote in the 2016 election cycle.

While this should come as a surprise to precisely 0 people, Spieles just happens to be Democrat who, accorded to a deleted FaceBook post, apparently recently ran for Caucus Chair of the Virginia Young Democrats.

It’s too bad really, sounds like Spieles had all the right “special talents” required to be very successful politician…he just forgot the most important first rule: “Don’t get caught.”

SO…
Ohio and Virginia?  Nothing to see there.  I’m certain there’s no chicanery in NY or California.  Or any other electoral heavy State.
Oh, wait!  Didn’t Jerry Brown just give the vote to FELONS?

Yep.  Nothing to see here – move along…

Sigh.

I’m A Libertarian (Small L), But…

from Wirecutter:

The Heroin Task Force formed by Seattle Mayor Ed Murray and King County Executive Dow Constantine has endorsed the creation of safe-consumption sites for addicts, which would be a first in the U.S.

A majority of the task-force members support a place or places for addicts to use heroin and other drugs besides public restrooms, alleys or homeless encampments such as The Jungle, said Dr. Jeffrey Duchin, task force co-chair. The idea is that users could visit a supervised facility where they could get clean needles and anti-overdose medications as well as medical attention as needed and treatment opportunities.

*****

Amsterdam tried this 3 decades ago and it was a disaster. Petty crime exploded and overdoses became epidemic. It didn’t work – given the choice between drugs and treatment, dope fiends will take the drugs every time.

My understanding of Amsterdam was not only petty crime skyrocketed, but organized crime did, as well.

My concerns are always about governmental costs (the current situation vis-a-vis the ‘program’, above), WHO pays for it, and WHO benefits? (cui bono).

As well as the ongoing ‘I’m a libertarian and have a right to put in my body whatever’ thing.

I have an addictive personality.  Thank God it’s not involving drugs or alcohol.  But, my personal health and families/friends have paid a price for my dysfunctional behaviors.

Obviously, locking up everyone in possession of a single rolling paper isn’t working.  (The U.S. having the largest prison population per capita – mostly for drug offenses)  I suspect the government plan above to fail.  Colorado has legality, and reportedly crime and DUIs have dropped.  Medical mj is expensive (both the card and the product), at least here in AZ.

Promoting personal character?  Sure.  Why not.

But, I don’t see an easy, simplistic solution…

A New Class Of Gentle, Bubble-Wrapped Snowflake!

from Wirecutter:

Yeah, let’s not hurt their feelings

An official with the Department of Justice said the agency will no longer call people “felons” or “convicts” after they are released from prison because it is too hard on them emotionally.

Assistant Attorney General Karol Mason wrote a piece in The Washington Post Wednesday saying “many of the formerly incarcerated men, women, and young people I talk with say that no punishment is harsher than being permanently branded a ‘felon’ or ‘offender.’”

Perhaps they should petition the courts for a ‘safe space’?

NEXT, we’ll be allowing them to vote and own firearms – OH!  Wait-a-minute…
