Obama's Student Loan Reform: Education, the key to the American Dream Education is the true key to the American Dream. Student loans may be a godsend. But payin' 'em off ain't easy. One year later, $200+ per month in payments and the student loan debt holds steady at its original value. Obama's Student Loan Reforms will eliminate botchaucracy of the private lenders, will increase tax credits, but . . . could you make them retroactive?

Healthcare: Four years to man-up for American rights, minutes to rally against healthcare for all Americans As Florida's Attorney General Bill McCollum leads the charge to block the healthcare bill "for the rights and freedoms of the individual citizens," citizens' rights were violated across Florida when ES&S lost their votes. Including 89,000 voters whose ES&S votes vanished in Forida's race for Atty. General where McCollum claimed the win. When the For-the-American-People card is played selectively, liberty rings hollow.

Healthcare Reform? What Do You Care? Are you retired military, employed with benefits, on Medicare, a healthy empty nester, or simply healthy? Then just maybe healthcare works for you. You and many other Americans may be doing just fine, thank you very much. And the government should stay out of your life and out of your wallet. But do you really believe healthcare works in this country? Can you believe starting over will achieve better or bipartisan results?

EACs Disappointing Election "Glitch" -- We can't fix the voting machines, so let's blame the ballots. A new glitch in the Election Assistance Commission (EAC) and Holt Bill/HR 811 and the Technical Guidelines Development Committee (TGDC). We can't fix the voting machines, so let's tinker with states that count their votes by hand. Now they too must use ballots that are machine countable -- that is if the machines could count. But here in reality, voting machines are still broken, as are the election laws that mock our votes.

Sequoia: Open Software Can't Count Votes & Elections Still Won't Work Sequoia Voting Systems discloses source code for their upcoming Frontier Election System. Does it matter? Yes. Will it make a difference to the outcome of the next big election bamboozle? No. Even if every election vendor followed suit, elections would still produce invalid results.

2,261,000 Stolen Votes & Counting. ES&S: “A time bomb waiting to go off.” Numbers don't lie. Voting machines do. Evidence points to ES&S voting machines losing nearly 25% of the votes . . . in once race alone. With 22,619 flawed voting machines . . . How many hot races & issues on your ballot? Did you check them all before ES&S took your votes away? . . . Every election, every race, every vote cast & counted on ES&S equipment is suspect . . . ES&S: Wrong for our votes. Wrong for our country.

ES&S for Dummies, 2009: Did Obama really win in 2008? Or did Obama win really, really big? ES&S incompetence or intent? ES&S for Dummies, 2009: Incompetence, Negligence, or Intent. Did Barack Obama win in 2008? Or did Barack Obama win by a landslide? The appalling truth is, we may never know. Forget the monopoly. Why are we even doing business with these people? As recently as June 2009, malfunctioning, poorly designed, vote-flipping ES&S voting incidents are an ongoing ES&S reality. What do you do when a vendor loses your data? Your votes?

Should Health Insurance be Mandatory? You're Only 20 or 30, Why? Should we object to laws requiring people to pay for health insurance when they can afford it? Take a look at Josh. He's twenty-seven years old, his life is in shambles and he can't imagine his way out of debt. All because of one quick trip to the hospital. Perhaps Josh could be your son. Perhaps he could be you. But the havoc incurred by not owning health insurance is staggering.

ES&S Acquires Premier Election Solutions. This is just wrong on so many levels. The acquisition of Premier indeed adds munitions to ES&S's arsenal. The monopoly is but a part of the troubling equation.

Another moose caught in the headlights: New ethics complaint against Sarah Palin. Kick that pitbull while she's down. Will another Republican Darling bite the dust... sand... SNOW? A new ethics complaint filed against Sarah Palin invokes comparisons of Palin with another Republican Darling, former Secretary of State Katherine Harris. Dark hair, lipstick, ambition, ethics... failing upwards, and both were used badly. They may have much in common after all.

Conspiracy, coincidence, or skullduggery? When is a coincidence too much of a coincidence to be one? One tilted election? Two? Four? And how many players constitute conspiracy? Connell, George W., Jeb, Hagel, Harris, Mortham, Feeney, ES&S, Ohio, Florida... McCain... 2000, 2002, 2004, 2006. All within one degree of separation. Consider also ES&S, liable for failures in 34 states, tallied 50% of the votes in the last four major U.S. elections. Coincidence? You decide.
