    Re: McDonald’s Workers Are Told Whom to Vote for

    I couldn't help but notice this little bit in the article:

    "Some Tea Party members have announced plans to question voters at the polls whom they suspect of being ineligible. "

    So... they're going to harass hispanics and blacks? Seriously, who else are they going to stop based on appearance? "You look like you might be a convicted felon." or "You look like you might be an illegal immigrant."

    Ever notice how nobody ever uncovers plots to rig elections for the liberal side?
    Liberté. Égalité. Fraternité.

    Could we stop pointing at "the other guy," or acting like this is a novel concept?
    Oh, can we please put both sides on a small deserted isle in the south Pacific and be done with them?!?!?

Not only does a nonprofit organization have no business being involved in politics, but to actually say Kerry was "for" abortion was blatantly wrong. I made it know that such an email was not acceptable as it was not true, and I was insulted.

    I think we'd be surprised how many businesses and churches try and shove their political choices on their employees or parishiners. Many just don't know any better.
    Was he speaking one behalf of the Church or on his own behalf. Deacons are the lowest rung on the Catholic clerical heiarchy (and also, was he a permanent or temporary deacon). Doubtful he was speaking on behalf of the Church, likely speaking on his own behalf, which is quite legal.

    I have never understood why election days are in the middle of the week when a lot of people are working.
    There are rules in some states, and polls are not open from 6am to 9pm in every state. Each state sets its own election laws and poll opening times.

    In Taiwan, elections are always on SAturdays and polls are open from 8AM to 4PM, and has a MUCH higher turnout than the US even though people often have to travel long distances to the town they are registered in to vote...
