Just Voted Against the Recall

I just voted NO on the recall. I also voted for Cruz Bustamante. Big surprize. Trying to prevent yet another stolen exection but the fix is probably in. In Los Angeles they have the Republican controlled Daibold voting machines. The same ones that gave Al Gore a -16022 (minus 16022) total in one precinct of Seminole County in the 2000 election. The Republicans will surely have these machines rigged in favor of Arnold.

If Arnold gets elected I want to be the first to sign the next recall petition.

I did make a controversial vote. I voted YES on Prop. 53 which prohibits the collection by the covernment on most racial data. This data is most often used to support racist decisions in government hiring. I don’t support discrimination based on race against any race including white people. If the government doesn’t know what race someone is then they can’t make a decision based on race.

It’s been 40 years since the civil rights revolution of the 1960s and it’s about time that people of color get off the government tit. I do support affirmative action based on economic status – but not race.

Reader Comments

The rest of North America wants to thank the people of California for electing Conan. It’s the biggest laugh since your Supreme Court selected Alfred E. Newman for the White House.

Obviously, next to destruction, your biggest export is humour.
Keep it up (the humour, that is).

You’re cracked my friend on Prop 53. I don’t live in CA so I don’t have a vote on this – but, trashing the instruments for measuring a situation, does not in fact make that situation non-existant. If you don’t like the weather outside you can’t just pull down the shades. The rains continue. This country has moved leaps and bounds from it segregated dual citizenship past, however, many inequities remain (education perhaps?). If the tools for measuring outcomes are dismantled, then how do we know if we are making progress as a society? We’d have no way of telling. Please focus your synapse a bit.
