    Sniveling pussy's. Get an absentee ballot, no lines. Wow that is to hard for you?

    It's not like they did not mail thousands of reminders you can get an absentee ballot weeks before the elections, plus commercials etc. Did I forget to mention the unending phone calls about absentee voting? So many in fact I had my land line turned off until after the election?

    I voted, did not have to stand in any lines either.

    It is. Duh. But of course I AM an American. I would imagine that the Irish feel that thier country is the greatest nation on Earth. Same with the Brits, French, Germans etc etc. There is nothing wrong with taking pride in ones country. Yet you throw it in here as if it a sin. If you don't like it so much then leave if you are here...if not then don't come here.

    All depends on ones point of view. We are certainly a beacon compared to places like Iran, North Korea etc etc.

    Umm..DUH! No brainer! We have a totally different culture and system of law from any other country out there. Why should we look to foreign courts? Doing such a thing is like wanting to learn about Mexico's culture by studying the Irish culture.

    If you don't know where to get one or how to fill it out or where to mail it by what deadline -- yeah.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    What is it with people picking the portion of my post they wish to respond to and ignoring the rest of it? That's twice so far in this thread alone.

    You voted, so it would be irrelevant. You also don't live in Florida so you would not know either way now would you?

    So your entire waste of time post had absolutely nothing to do with the "49,000" disfranchisement registered Florida voters?

    Thanks for wasting everyone's time. I certainly appreciate it.

    Perhaps Florida should consider trying to open more polling places? I wonder how many people are served on average per designated polling place and how this compares with other states.

    or to obtain a photo ID in the 4 years between elections only to whine about it being a poll tax........

    Dear Floridians.

    Very sorry you are too stupid to know how to vote in your state. Pretty sad when you disenfranchise yourself. Maybe you are literally too stupid to take part in this process.

    PS...for next time...

    "How to Early Vote

    Early voting begins 10 days before an election and ends on the 3rd day before any election in which there is a state or federal office race. Early voting may be held for a maximum of 12 hours, but no less than 6 hours, a day."

    That Huffington Post article - Huffington Post openly a Democratic publication - is based upon this:



    "According to an analysis by Theodore Allen, an associate professor of industrial engineering at Ohio State University..."

    An associate professor in industrial engineering from Ohio State?

    That make the article just a punk comedy routine. It should have "but a Physical Education professor from Alabama disputes the claim, saying..."

    Thanks, actually, for proving my point -- that despite all of our technology and knowledge and experience, we have yet to figure out a way to efficiently and consistently conduct our elections.
