Voting Machines Switching Votes!

An article in the Charleston Gazette   By Paul J. Nyden / Staff writer has implied that some W. VA voters are angry about switched votes in Jackson County from the touch-screen systems being utilized.   The article referenced something about the systems alignment calibration being off…   Read the whole article by clicking on this LINK!


On October 7th, I posted a Youtube video about the same topic when Homer Simpson tries to vote for Obama.   Perhaps this video is much closer to the truth about the issues surrounding the use of these devices…   LINK to the Youtube video of Homer voting.

 An interesting idea of video taping your vote is being circulated.   This could prove to be real interesting…  At the very least, be aware of the issue and watch for any problems when voting!    Go to Video your Vote – LINK

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi – Corrupt, Fact or Fiction?

It seems about two thirds of the e-mail’s I receive these days are all political biased garbage being forwarded to either help or hinder ones agenda on a person or subject.   I sometimes delete them, other times I do futher research to see the truth, or lack of behind them.   In this case, it appears there may be some truth to the matter. 

And just maybe a vote to Cindy Sheehan is a really good choice -Yes!

The below is one such e-mail by an unknown author.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi’s home district includes San Francisco.   Star-Kist Tuna’s headquarters are in San Francisco, Pelosi’s home district.   Star-Kist is owned by Del Monte Foods and is a major contributor to Pelosi.   Star-Kist is the major employer in American Samoa employing 75% of the Samoan workforce.
Paul Pelosi, Nancy’s husband, owns $17 million dollars of Star-Kist stock. In January 2007 when the minimum wage was increased from $5.15 to $7.25, Pelosi had American Samoa exempted from the increase so Del Monte would not have to pay the higher wage. This would make Del Monte products less expensive than their competition’s. Last week when the huge bailout bill was passed, Pelosi added an earmark to the final bill adding $33 million dollars for an economic development credit in American Samoa.
Pelosi says …Republicans are corrupt.   She should know.  

Washington is corrupt, as is Wall Street!  Please VOTE !

CEO Compensation – See How You Compare!

With all the recent news about CEO golden parachute packages, I thought it may be beneficial for all us “Joe’s” to see how we compare…   I had heard that the average comparison was about 400 times the average worker.   It appears that what I heard was correct.   In my case, being an average white collar professional for a Fortune 100 pharmaceutical company.   Yes, I consider myself to be an average “Joe”, who just like you can’t afford to get sick!…   To keep off my soap box, I’ll get to the point.

I would have to work 427 years to equal that of Mr. White’s 2007 compensation, using the Securities and Exchange Commission’s data.    I really would not object if had Mr. White founded the company like Steve Job’s or Bill Gate’s, but that is not the case.  He like so many others are just employee’s, as are you and I.

To see how you compare to your CEO (or any of them), click on this  LINK  to Executive Pay Watch Database from the AFL-CIO America’s Union Movement.
