I put this in the Shows thread already, but Jimmy Eat World is playing the Carmona Rally tomorrow.
anybody have an extra ticket to the weeknd show tomorrow? they're sold out
It would help if the ad, you know, provided an explanation as to what Carmona was allegedly so upset about, but there you have it: the Republicans are panicking and this is a race, y'all.
so does anyone want to see demetri martin with me downtown friday? 9:45pm showing, ticket is free. full-disclosure, you will be a backup plan as i invited a date, but haven't heard anything yet. i have a feeling he will say no though, which is why i'm asking.
Put my early voting ballot in the mail today. Found this helpful website to inform my decision on the propositions:
i always vote in person. #1, it's a precaution against any last-minute news that might change my opinion and #2, listening to people talk in line is fascinating. today i read all the props and made my decisions. there were a couple that were confusing, like the two at the top/open elections thing.
VIDEO: Flake caught defrauding voters
November 4, 2012
12 News' Brahm Resnik just broke a big story: Congressman Flake's campaign is calling voters likely to cast their ballot for Rich and telling them to go to the wrong polling place to discourage them from voting.
These calls are paid for by the Flake campaign and coming out of the Flake campaign -- not some shadowy outside group. At a time when both parties should be encouraging people to vote, Congressman Flake is actively trying to mislead voters and make it harder for folks who prefer Rich to cast their vote.
Please watch this video and share it with your friends.
This is the first time I have done a mail in ballot and I think it's by far the most informed ballot i've ever submitted. The ability to sit at the computer and google every proposition was invaluable to me. I think I spent 2 hours or so all together on it.
It's all for nothing anyway. When Carmona and Penzone walk away losers i'll just feel deflated and understand what a waste of time it was anyway.
I like going to the polls, and taking my Son.
I've had about half a dozen phone calls or so in the last week. Tons of mailers that just get trashed in the recycle which is conveniently located right next to the mailbox and WAY TOO MANY E-MAILS, i finally unsubscribed from them. Who do these asshats think they are asking the poor for money!?! lol
Sean, the last polls I saw had Penzone only down 4 points and Carmona down 6 points. Who knows though. I'm not convinced any of these numbers are credible anwyay. I did my part in voting for Penzone (under much protest by the way lol) and Carmona.
i usually chose not to vote if i don't have any idea what's going on, though sometimes i will vote by party. when reading the propositions in that mailer they send, for the few i don't understand, i read through the pros and cons. sometimes there are a gazillion of one and none of the other, so i'll vote with the majority in those cases. especially on things like k-12 education and land appropriations, of which i have no knowledge.
Last I saw Joe had over 7 million and Penzone had around $300K. The other indie candidate is Stauffer who doesn't have much traction but was probably the best choice. Penzone is a Democrate but surprise he is going to "crack down" on illegal immigration according to him and his website platform and continue fighting that all important drug war. We can go through the exercise of voting him out in 4 years too I suppose.
Here is a bit on the money spent.
Here is information on all the ballot propositions this year.
