Some Florida Voter Precincts Showing 158% Voter Turnout, Obama Phones On Speed Dial We Are American Idol.

November 11, 2012

Many elections may not quite be settled just yet and this may open an entire can of worms across the country.

WatchdogWire reports,

Only one precinct had less than 113% turnout. The unofficial vote count is 175,554 registered voters 247,713 vote cards cast (141.10% ). The National SEAL Museum, a St. Lucie county polling place, had 158.85% voter turn out, the highest in the county.

When asked about the 141% Supervisor of Elections Gertrude Walker stated, “They may have had something like that in Palm Beach County, but we’ve never seen that here.”

Obama phones on speed dial. We are  American Idol.

The Votes Are In, British Judges Fall Out of Love With Obama

June 16, 2010

The BBC reports of Barack Obama’s speech last night are about as derisive as it would be possible to be about someone you were describing only a few months ago as the incarnation of Hope and Optimism. Yes indeed, the romance is over. The British media have decided that it was all a cruel deception: Obama is just one more ranting populist president who will do anything to divert attention from his own failure to get a grip. And this is not just about BP and the fate of all those pension funds.

Nor is it simply the demonising of Big Oil – which makes the US president sound as if he were recruiting his speech writers direct from the student union – that has evoked the UK media’s collective sneer. What has been much commented upon – especially by those fastidiously liberal BBC correspondents – is Obama’s pointedly bellicose language: the US is apparently engaged in a “battle” to be waged in very personal, anthropomorphic terms “against an oil spill that is assaulting” its coast. Considering how relentlessly the Bush “war on terror” was ridiculed, how long will it take before the Obama “war on an oil slick” is labelled as absurd? Given the tone of this morning’s coverage, perhaps not very long at all. Brits have determined our  American Idol has no talent.

Campbell Soup Line.. Looks For Next Seasonal American Idol Maintenance Worker

June 7, 2010

Some of the more than 1200 people who lined up for a chance at just over 150 seasonal  jobs available a the Campbell’s plant in Sacramento are being turned away.

Officials at the hiring center at 16th Street and Del Paso Blvd. in downtown Sacramento say they did not expect the massive turnout.  They began taking applications for seasonal jobs in shipping, receiving and janitorial services at 7:00am but an hour-and-a-half later, officials began telling people they could go to another hiring center to take a qualifying test.

That’s when some of the people who had been lined up since yesterday afternoon began to get upset.  Some of the job applicants told CBS13 they were mad because the event was poorly organized.

Officials then began handing out blank 3×5 cards telling people to write their names and contact information on the cards.  What had been an organized line, soon became a chaotic throng of people desperately trying to get one of those blank cards. At that time the crowd became unruly..The available jobs pay between $16 and $17 per hour.

Campbells Soup line ummm ummm not so good…Especially when stressed out people waiting to apply were told they could have applied on line…
