A woman wearing an MIT t-shirt was barred from voting Florida, according to a local report. MIT stands for the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, not Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney.
That’s right folks, a poll watcher attempted, she was eventually allowed to vote, to stop someone because they were wearing a college shirt for one of the best engineering schools in the country. Now why do I say there’s no bias, well lets look at this:
Yet the poll watchers do nothing. They are however more than happy to jump at someone wearing a MIT shirt.
I am a firm believer in the Soap-Box, Ballot-Box, and Cartridge-Box. Even the UN poll watchers, which I think honestly have no business being here, are astonished that we don’t show ID. Yet fearless leader and his supporters claim that requiring ID would be discriminatory against a fundamental right.
Interestingly those same people are more than willing to require my ID and a pile of paperwork for me to exercise my enumerated right to own a firearm.
Honestly on a national level, I have absolutely no faith in the ballot system any more. There’s a reason people don’t want ID’s shown, it’s the only way they can maintain control and survive since it widens the margin of cheat. My soap-box is working, my cartridge-box still works, I’m finding my ballot-box though extremely suspect.

He has a BS in electrical engineering from Washington State University. Immediately after college he went into work on embedded software and hardware for use in critical infrastructure. This included cryptographic communications equipment as well as command and control devices that were using that communications equipment. Since then he’s worked on just about everything ranging from toys, phones, other critical infrastructure, and even desktop applications. Doing everything from hardware system design, to software architecture, to actually writing software that makes your athletic band do its thing.
