This guy may be onto something. But how much less, is the question. If I may, I propose that we make "urban" votes worth 3/5 of a "Real AmericanTM" vote. What do y'all think?

"Although it remains almost totally unknown to the public," writes Kurtz in the second book, "a great deal of Obama's early political career was devoted to the goal of turning Michael Jackson black again."

naughtyrev: Why doesn't he just come out and say that he wants to count urban people as 3/5s of a person?


Why so negative? Don't think of it as giving urban voters three fifths of a vote -- think of it as giving rural voters five thirds of one. It's like giving out extra votes! We should thank him for being so generous.

GOP strategist 1: We keep losing elections and the population is getting more and more liberal. Should we maybe think of some new ideas to appeal to more people so that we can remain relevant?

GOP strategist 2: Nah, let's undermine Democracy and try to rig things so that we can milk a few more elections without having to adapt.

Average American: I am so farked.

According to Stanley Kurtz, the author of Radical-in-Chief and Spreading the Wealth, Obama is using the powers of the federal government to pull people and money out of the suburbs and into the cities. "Although it remains almost totally unknown to the public," writes Kurtz in the second book, "a great deal of Obama's early political career was devoted to the goal of abolishing America's suburbs, a project he undertook in close collaboration with his Alinskyite organizing mentors."


Of course it remains almost totally unknown to the public -- YOU JUST MADE IT UP.

Then there was the educated Texan from Texas who
looked like someone in Technicolor and felt,patriotically, that people of means - decent folk -
should be given more votes than drifters, whores, criminals, degenerates, atheists and indecent folk
- people without means.

Yossarian was unspringing rhythms in the letters the day they brought the Texan in. It was another
quiet, hot, untroubled day. The heat pressed heavily on the roof, stifling sound. Dunbar was lying
motionless on his back again with his eyes staring up at the ceiling like a doll's. He was working
hard at increasing his life span. He did it by cultivating boredom. Dunbar was working so hard at
increasing his life span that Yossarian thought he was dead. They put the Texan in a bed in the
middle of the ward, and it wasn't long before he donated his views.

Dunbar sat up like a shot. 'That's it,' he cried excitedly. 'There was something missing - all the time
I knew there was something missing - and now I know what it is.' He banged his fist down into his
palm. 'No patriotism,' he declared.

'You're right,' Yossarian shouted back. 'You're right, you're right, you're right. The hot dog, the
Brooklyn Dodgers. Mom's apple pie. That's what everyone's fighting for. But who's fighting for the
decent folk? Who's fighting for more votes for the decent folk? There's no patriotism, that's what it
is. And no matriotism, either.'

AliceBToklasLives: badLogic: I know what we can do! Count urban voters as 3/5ths of a person, like the Founding Fathers intended.

What about folks who are 1/2 urban? I was told there would be no farking math!

/fraction, how the fark do they work?


According to math, you'd count as 7/10 of a person if you're 1/2 urban.

According to the Supreme Court, it only takes one drop of urban blood to make you count as fully urban. (Plessy v. Ferguson)

Excuse me Titsy, but I am white and happen to be far less frightened by the fact that minorities have a say in this democracy than I am by the rhetoric coming from the Tea Party, which just happens to be all white. They talk about seccession. The last group of white supremacists who tried to secede got their shoeless asses stomped into the ground because they were too stupid to realize that you don't go to war with and industrializing neighbor while you have only 16 linear miles of railroad track laid.

Lazy hillbillies didn't have a mass exodus when we took their farm equipment away from them, they won't leave now, unfortunately. Where would you go? Everything NOT you apparently scares the bejeesus out of you. You're already right where you belong, in the world that you built: living in shiat stained red-states that take more from the Fed than they contribute, surrounded by trailers, meth addicts and Romney stickers. I guess if you're still flying the Confederate flag of the illiterate lazy assed loser, a Romney sticker does still make sense.

On Monday, as Sen. Carrico was talking up his bill, the Pew Research Center brought together a group of secretaries of state and campaign strategists. The topic: Whether the voting snafus of 2012 could be fixed. Democrats were interested. Republicans wanted to slow down and really think about this. Did urbanites have a harder time voting? Yes. Did that hurt Democrats? Well, sure.

"I don't hold out any hope that there's going to be a bipartisan agreement," said Scott Tranter, who'd consulted for the Romney campaign. "At the end of the day, we're all campaign officials, and we want to do whatever we can to help our side. Sometimes that's voter ID. Sometimes that's longer lines. Whatever it may be."


Isn't partisan control of elections great?
