It's Toe Tappin' Time Again

This is really, really nice, almost, pretty.

Midnight In Harlem like you have never heard before.

Headphones are highly recommended.
Susan Tedeschi just nails this and Derek Trucks brings it home.

If you didn't enjoy that you are a walking bag of meat with no soul or appreciation of beauty.

Seeing Is Believing

I'm sure you have all heard about the electronic voting machines being fucked with.
See it with your own eyes.

From Crooks and Liars,
I initially selected Obama but Romney was highlighted. I assumed it was being picky so I deselected Romney and tried Obama again, this time more carefully, and still got Romney. Being a software developer, I immediately went into troubleshoot mode. I first thought the calibration was off and tried selecting Jill Stein to actually highlight Obama. Nope. Jill Stein was selected just fine. Next I deselected her and started at the top of Romney's name and started tapping very closely together to find the 'active areas'. From the top of Romney's button down to the bottom of the black checkbox beside Obama's name was all active for Romney. From the bottom of that same checkbox to the bottom of the Obama button (basically a small white sliver) is what let me choose Obama. Stein's button was fine. All other buttons worked fine.
Then it just gets weird.
I asked the voters on either side of me if they had any problems and they reported they did not. I then called over a volunteer to have a look at it. She him hawed for a bit then calmly said "It's nothing to worry about, everything will be OK." and went back to what she was doing. I then recorded this video.
Everything is going to be OK? Are you fucking kidding me?!
The guy should have called the fucking cops so they could quarantine the obviously fucked up machine instead of letting it go so some other motherfucker  could have the same thing happen.
The fucking Republicans know they can't win in a straight up contest, which is why I have heard at least thirty stories this election of dirty fucking tricks they have pulled  trying to to keep people from voting.
This shit needs to stop and some people need to go to fucking prison for a long God Damn time.
