Bloviating Zeppelin

(in-ep-toc'-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

As You Vote Today, Remember THIS:


Let's see; if a police officer were to go to vote, on duty, in full uniform, with his or her issued sidearm in possession, holstered, secured, would you suspect that officer should get turned away unless their sidearm was surrendered? And, if the officer refused to surrender said firearm, would that officer be disallowed to vote?

That is precisely what occurred in Bangor, Maine. Read the article here.

Now, ask yourself another question: what do you think the general political leaning might be, of the "election official" who refused to allow the officer to vote? Do you think perhaps a Conservative would be responsible?

Please note:

The incident bothered the officer enough to draft a letter to Maine Secretary of State Matthew Dunlap, which the officer also provided to the Bangor Daily News. In it, (Officer) Dearing writes that Mallar claimed he would be violating state law by allowing the officer to vote with his weapon holstered.

“Mallar claims that this was a state of Maine law, however, I cannot find such a prohibition listed in Title 21-A,” (Officer) Dearing’s letter read. “Furthermore, many members of the police department and I have been casting ballots at the polls for many years in full uniform and have never been required to remove our firearms.”

Reached by phone on Sunday, Dunlap said he had not yet seen (Officer) Dearing’s letter but said there is no state law that says officers are prohibited from carrying firearms anywhere. The secretary of state could not remember a similar complaint in recent years.

Repeat: there is no such law indicating the officer could not vote in uniform with his duty sidearm holstered.

"I would never relinquish my weapon," the officer said. God bless him.

Again, I ask: what do you think the personal political philosophy might be of the "election official" who refused to allow the officer to vote?

I think even infants can do the math on this one.

P.S.
The "election official" who refused to let the officer vote has been dismissed.

Maine law enforcement officers are not required by law to surrender their sidearms at the polls.

Let me be blunt: that was a "made up law" by some Leftist because he didn't care for cops as authority figures.

Simple as that.

VOTE, America!

Mr. AOW and I cast our ballots first thing this morning. I had to mark Mr. AOW's ballot for him as the stroke took away the use of his left hand (He's left handed).

We had a little trouble at the polling place because I was filling out Mr. AOW's ballot. But it all got ironed out when Mr. AOW and I signed a special form allowing me to cast his ballot for him.

Mr. AOW qualifies to vote absentee ballot, but prefers to go to the polling place himself - voting is that precious to him.

AOW: you should vote as you wish. I prefer absentee because of the convenience due to the distance between myself and where I work.

VOTE, America!

We voted the day early voting started, I always take advantage of early voting, beat the rush so to speak...

I'll be working as a poll watcher from 3-7PM, I don't think this VERY RED part of Texas will have a problem though...

Ballots cast today!

Locally just the House Rep. and a few agenda items... still turnout is important to warn those in office about what will happen in 2012 if they don't shape up.

It is time for this Elite Gentry Political Class to go.

Amateurs will do a much better job.

I wish I could say I were confident that Fornicalia was about to turn down marijuana, Babs Boxer and Jerry Brown -- but I'm not.

Fornicalia prides itself on being politically stupid.
