I just hate having to wait until 9 pm or so to start getting results...and even then, the news shows are just a bunch of jibber jabber from talking heads for the first couple of hours. Nothing much is known until 11 pm or later.

Sometime's the wait is like an execution and sometime's the wait is like waiting to open presents for Christmas morning.

Have to wait until after work tonight to accompany the wife to polling place.
Usually it feels like a waste since by that time, it seems like most races are already pretty well decided. But this year, the Con-gressional :p is neck & neck in the the polls and could come down to the proverbial saying.

Still trying to decide whose immigration policy/history I oppose less.
Minnick favors "out of the shadows" CIR/limited amnesty :rolleyes: while Labrador's work as an attorney on behalf of illegal immigrants has been less than stellar, imo :mad: and now he says he wants them deported :confused:


Labrador sued the Bush administration on behalf of a Mexican woman who had already been deported. Labrador admitted she entered the country illegally, but demanded that she be returned so she could go back through the immigration system. (Federal case CV-00195)

Labrador represented a drug dealer who broke into a vacant Canyon County home with his partner in order to split up drugs intended for sale. In his defense, Labrador argued that it was logical for the men to flee when they saw a green truck because the men thought it was an INS vehicle. (Federal case CR-00234-EJL)

Labrador argued that all evidence against an illegal-immigrant drug dealer should be suppressed because, in his view, a lane-change violation was not a good enough reason to pull someone over and search a car. The car was found to have methamphetamine. Labrador's motion was dismissed -- but not before Labrador agreed to a plea deal for his client with the provision that the plea would be voided if the evidence was suppressed. (Federal case CR-00169-EL)

Labrador argued for a reduced sentence for an illegal immigrant because, according to Labrador, the man's AK-47 in a car trunk had no relationship to the methamphetamine and drug materials found in the front of the car. (Federal case CR-01-191)

And in a meth ditributing ring arrest, one of the men arrested and charged in the conspiracy was an illegal immigrant who was part of a $5,500 drug transaction in front of a Nampa grocery store. The man's attorney (Labrador) later asked that the man be released.
The judge granted the request, but ordered that the accused adhere to strict terms of his release. The attorney also assured the U.S. Attorney and judge that although the man was an illegal immigrant, the attorney would have no problem dealing with immigration officials.
That same attorney, not long after, filed a motion asking the judge to dismiss the serious criminal charges against this illegal immigrant and dismiss the warrant for his arrest, as the client was no longer in the country.

In a blistering response, the U.S. Attorney's office wrote the following about the attorney: "What the Government sees is an attorney's specific and preexisting plan to have his client released from this Court on standard conditions and then have him deported to Mexico so as to avoid the federal charges, specifically what the United States warned the Magistrate Court to guard against in releasing him. Not only did the Magistrate Court err in releasing the Defendant under such circumstances, Counsel and the Defendant, it would seem, calculated his unavailability in direct relation thereto."
The client was Carlos Araiza Lopez, who was only caught years later after sneaking back into the country.

Lesser of two evils regards.

In the great state of WA the thing is initiatives -

1053 - Requires a 2/3rds vote of our legislature to raise taxes = can't be suspended for 2 years which is exactly what was done last year & many D's are going to get their walking papers - this state's treatment of all their public employees is much too generous.

1098 - Income Tax on those incomes above 250K - was passing until those below that threshold found out they could be next, in 2 years :)

1100 - takes the state out of the liquor business

1105 - takes the state out of the liquor business & gives the monopoly to the distributors

1107 - rolls back the taxes placed on certain grocery products by the last legislature

1082 - takes the state out of the workmen's comp business (last year OR, our sister state placed 19 people on permanent disability, WA placed 703, mostly public employees :()

Public employees unions favor 1098 oppose all others - I did agree with them on 1105 ;-).

Murray-Rossi - had Rossi gotten the win as Governor that he earned 5 yerars ago, this state's economy would be in great shape - IMO he would have made a great governor for this state - I am not sure he is as fiscally conservative as I would like in the Senate spot - but hopefully we'll get a chance to see.

I think we'll also get a chance to see which are the real swing districts for the House critters - this state has R's that need the representation of more than the 2 we presently send to DC.

Despite several peoples' characterizations of me, I used to be a staunch republican, but fortunately saw the light around the time of Bush I. I still hold many conservative values, especially in the fiscal realm, but I doubt any modern day republican would be familiar with them! I never really left the republican party, it left me. I have no problem at all voting for a republican, if he or she hold true to my values and seems like a decent person.

Most of the outrage with Republicans started when they wrecked the US economy, started two unnecessary wars, and drove up the federal deficit to numbers most of us can't even comprehend. I voted for a couple of democrats, several alternative party candidates, and 0 republicans. Much as I despise democratic leadership, I've seen and heard nothing to indicate the Republican leadership will do anything different from the last time they held sway. Their results speak for themselves.

I took my four year old daughter voting with me today and explained to her it was our right as Americans to pick the people we want in charge of our country.
After I got done voting for all the republicans we had a state constitutional vote here in TN to make Hunting and Fishing a State Constitutional Right. I asked Ira if we should be able to hunt and fish and she said yes so I let her push the buttons on the voting machine.
Then we went home and caught and released 2 bass (one 3lbs and one 1 1/2lbs she reeeled them in) and caught a tadpole she is taking to school tomorrow, I can't think of a better way to teach her the ways of this country!!

with a democratic senate and president i dont expect much, obama will not budge or reach across the aisle because to do so would admit that he has been wrong, which he cant do with his ego. he much prefers the approach of "my way or the highway", or "they wont come 100% to my side so they are the ones being difficult"

afterall - where are all the mega katrinas your buddy al gore predicted??
