Some people aren't taking the Election results well

Postby Beaver » Tue Nov 13, 2012 9:13 pm

I hear talk of some Southern states seceding from the union. And this crazy AZ woman runs over her husband.

http://news.yahoo.com/arizona-woman-run ... 26220.html

"PHOENIX (Reuters) - An Arizona woman, in despair at the re-election of Democratic President Barack Obama, ran down her husband with the family car in suburban Phoenix on Saturday because he failed to vote in the election, police said on Monday. Holly Solomon, 28, was arrested after running over husband Daniel Solomon following a wild chase that left him pinned underneath the vehicle.

Daniel Solomon, 36, was in critical condition at a local hospital, but is expected to survive, Gilbert police spokesman Sergeant Jesse Sanger said. Police said Daniel Solomon told them his wife became angry over his "lack of voter participation" in last Tuesday's presidential election and believed her family would face hardship as a result of Obama winning another term."

If only she had known that Arizona was safe for Romney and his vote didn't matter.

If there were no witnesses, then she could cite the castle doctrine.

Yeah, and Karl & Rush will denounce their party, wed in a civil ceremony and open a little B&B in Vermont.

Chances are about the same.

Secession petitions now filed for all 50 states
http://news.yahoo.com/blogs/lookout/sec ... 00440.html

"Petitions signed by hundreds of thousands of Americans seeking permission for their states to peacefully secede from the union have now been filed for all 50 states on the White House website...As of Wednesday afternoon, North Carolina, Tennessee, Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana and Texas—all states that voted for former Gov. Mitt Romney—as well as Florida each had accumulated more than 25,000 signatures, the threshold needed to trigger an official response from the Obama administration. Collectively, the secession petitions now have more than 700,000 digital signatures."

I wonder how well they're keeping track of how many of the signers are state residents.

I was considering registering at the website and signing the petitions for all the Jesusland states. And maybe starting one asking that the President just let 'em go. It would go a long way towards fixing the debt.

Humph! If people mourned a Romney win, they'd be called sour grapes, sore losers.

I was going to post these to the Obama Intrade thread but after some thought, this one is more appropriate and Meade can still see it. :-)

From the great state of Maine we have
GOP chairman Charlie Webster to investigate ‘black people’ voting as potential fraud
“In some parts of the state, there were dozens of black people who came in to vote,” Webster said. “Nobody in town knew them.”

When Carrigan pressed Webster to identify the towns, the Maine Republican Party chairman only specified that they were small rural towns.

We have unknown black people in unknown towns. Who voted. And white people didn't recognize them.

We've got to get to the bottom of this, fast.

Okay, I have to admit I was wrong. I thought this guy was a racist whiner. Now I know he's being objective and non partisan.

It's not just Austin trying to secede from Texas. There's also Atlanta trying to leave Georgia, and El Paso trying to leave Texas. Someone thinks Romney should be investigated for ties to some voting machine company (how'd that work out?), and yet another person wants an investigation of "offending prophets of major religions."

And, as usual, somebody wants to impeach Obama.

Yes it was a senseless attack.

And whiners and cry babies who won't accept reality...like they called us during the Walker recall.

Posting this here cause it was put on the same website as the other petitions.

White House scrubs petition to ‘punch Grover Norquist in the dick’

This made me smile today.
