Homeless voting

Lisa Schiffren posted the following on The Corner NRO website earlier today:


Letting the Homeless Vote   [Lisa Schiffren]

Try as I might, I cannot really understand how even a minimum standard of voting security can be maintained when, as an Ohio judge did yesterday, you decide to let the homeless vote. If there is no address -- how do you check whether  someone has voted before or whether they are using a real name? I get that the judge is attempting to enable fraud on behalf of his campaign -- but how does this pass even a minimum test of reasonableness?

Remember how Obama won all of those caucuses, starting with Iowa, where Hillary had been running ahead in polls? According to a bunch of eyewitness, including former candidate Joseph Biden, many Iowa caucuses were won on the strength of voters bused in from Illinois. I hold it against Hillary that she didn't protest at the time. Now, of course, there is no protection to be had. These Chicago Obama supporters can vote in their own district, then get on busses to Ohio where they are now free to cite a given park bench or doorway as their residence, and vote again. I guess that's easier than bringing out the dead, which was the traditional Chicago practice. Although I'm sure they'll be voting too.

Bushvilles (Tent Cities) In The USA.... From the BBC

Over at the EENR blog, pioneer has posted a short diary about the emergence of new tent cities in Los Angeles, CA.

I believe that we all of seen or heard about "tent cities" through out the years, if not in your community then most likely on the news.
I have seen them in person, read about and heard about the fights between communities, churches and the homeless and all that goes with them. Nobody wants them in their back yard, but these people must live somewhere.

Now we have a new breed of homeless living in "tent cities", they are the couples and families that have lost their homes due to the mortgage mess AND the lack of TRUE Universal Health Care!

While our media is fixated on the "Ballot Bowl", a pastor, an ex VP candidate, the presidential candidates and ALL of the nonsense that has been going on around them, it takes the foreign press (oh what an EVIL word - right?) - the BBC - to help enlighten us and bring us back to reality.
