I just came back from the county offices where I had to go to deal with
automobile license plates.  Fooled around and waited till the very
last day to buy new stickers without penalty--in my defense I was busy
being Provocative Put on the RR Magazine message board.



Anyway, the parking lot was full and there was a long line waiting for early voting.



Early voting should be against the law, but that's another topic. 
What got me was something I heard as I walked past part of that line.



"I be voting fo Barack 'cause when he be president he be gonna send everybody $1,000 and I need that money."



Standing right in front of him was a guy who muttered, "My vote is earmarked to cancel yours."



I fear that this is not going to be a good year for anybody with an IQ higher than room temperature.

I forgot what TV show it was but they were interviewing people in Harlem. They were asking people if they agreed with Obama's position on topic "XYZ". As a spoof they were substituting McCain's position rather than Obama's. Everyone they spoke to said "Oh yaya, I agree with that!"  Disclosure: I'm not racist, my best friend is black and he is the first one to agree with me.
 
Ridiculous.....your room tempature comment is spot on, but I'm also of the mind that you should have to go through an interview process before you're allowed to have kids. I'm only kinda kidding.

That's pretty funny.  It's unbelievable that people this uneducated are actually able to vote.

Ah, we have people right here at RR calling Obama a racist, Muslim terrorist who isn't even an American citizen. All untrue of course, but still believed.

 
Should we let people that uneducated vote or should we keep to the racist line drawn here on RR forums and keep the line in Harlem?

No, I'm for all of the stupid white people not voting too. 

 
Oh, the beaty of a democratic government where even the uneducated can help decide the future of the country.  Socialist as it may become.  I think I'm going to go out and buy a gun and a new Bible so I have both to cling to.
