VOTER APATHY LINKED TO FRAUD IN TENNESSEE

Voter Apathy?

WACKENHUT VIDEO

Uploaded by on Mar 1, 2012
Laptop stolen just before the election, turns up at a strip club that got shut down for operating without a license. Voter Apathy or common sense. Wackenhut at it’s finest.
Gee—with all the bitching we do about voter apathy, low voter turnout, and then about the people who are ultimately elected by the few who do vote; the media seems to be making an awful big deal about the upcoming primary elections.

The deadline to register for the upcoming primary was today, January 7, 2008.

Yet, in the midst of it all, I just received a letter dated January 2, 2008 along with approximately 370,000. Coincidentally—this is roughly the same number of TennCare recipients who were dropped from the rolls (dis-enrolled due to reform) just a few years ago]] people that my personal information (including my social security number) has been compromised due to a break-in at the Davidson County Election Commission on Christmas Eve in Nashville, Tennessee.

GOOD GOING!!!
I cannot be the only one who is wondering how this will affect voter registration, turnout, or “apathy” in the future.

Ironically, as an additional side note, the state of Tennessee just happened to pass new, “progressive” legislation regarding identity theft the very same day the “warning” letter was mailed. It is almost too much of a coincidence, don’t you think?

Call me a conspiracy theorist if you like, but I am still trying to wrap my head around this one!

OOPS! I MISSED MY SECOND ELECTION SINCE I FIRST VOTED FOR CLINTON JUST DAYS AFTER I TURNED 18.

I COULDN’T VOTE THIS YEAR… NOT IN THIS SWING STATE.

I HAD MY REGISTRATION FORMS ON TIME, MADE PHOTOCOPIES OF ALL THE REQUIRED PHOTO AND RESIDENCY DOCUMENTATION.

DESPITE MEETING ALL THE RESIDENCY REQUIREMENTS, *AND* BEING EXEMPT FROM THE PHOTO ID REQUIREMENT DUE TO A MEDICAL DISABILITY, THE ELECTION BOARD DECIDED THAT UTILITY BILLS, A PASSPORT AND LEASE SIMPLY WERE NOT GOOD ENOUGH TO VOTE IN THIS DEMOCRATIC COUNTY… SILLY RABBITS! I WAS ABOUT TO CROSS PARTY LINES… AND IT AIN’T OVER TILL IT’S OVER!

HI GOVERNOR SCOTT! REMEMBER ME? I’M BAACK!

Sometimes it’s a bitch… ELyssaD™ © 2012

“Sometimes It’s A Bitch”

Well, I’ve run through rainbows

And castles of candy

I’ve cried a river of tears

From the pain

I try to dance with

What life has to hand me

My partner’s been pleasure

My partner’s been pain

There are days

When I swear I could

Fly like an eagle

And dark desperate hours

That nobody sees

My arms stretched triumphant

On top of the mountain

My head in my hands

Down on my knees

Sometimes it’s a bitch

Sometimes it’s a breeze

Sometimes love’s blind

And sometimes it sees

Sometimes it’s roses

And sometimes it’s weeds

Sometimes it’s a bitch

Sometimes it’s a breeze

I’ve reached in darkness

And come out with treasure

I’ve laid down with love

And I woke up with lies

What’s it all worth

Only the heart can measure

It’s not what’s in the mirror

But what’s left inside

Sometimes it’s a bitch

Sometimes it’s a breeze

Sometimes love’s blind

And sometimes it sees

Sometimes it’s roses

And sometimes it’s weeds

Sometimes it’s a bitch

Sometimes it’s a breeze

You gotta take it as it comes

Sometimes it don’t come easy

I’ve run through rainbows

And castles of candy

And I’ve cried a river of tears

From the pain

I tried to dance with

What life had to hand me

And if I could

I’d do it all over again

Sometimes it’s a bitch

Sometimes it’s a breeze

Sometimes love’s blind

And sometimes it sees

Sometimes it’s roses

And sometimes it’s weeds

Sometimes it’s a bitch

Sometimes it’s a breeze

Sometimes the picture

Just ain’t what it seems

You get what you want

But it’s not what you need

Sometimes it’s a bitch

Sometimes it’s a breeze

Well it’s a breeze

It’s a breeze, it’s a breeze

“Mama, I’m Coming Home”

[Ozzy Osbourne, Zakk Wylde, Lemmy Kilmister]

Times have changed and times are strange

Here I come, but I ain’t the same

Mama, I’m coming home

Times gone by, seems to be

You could have been a better friend to me

Mama, I’m coming home

You took me in and you drove me out

Yeah, you had me hypnotized

Lost and found and turned around

By the fire in your eyes

You made me cry, you told me lies

But, I can’t stand to say goodbye

Mama, I’m coming home

I could be right, I could be wrong

It hurts so bad, it’s been so long

Mama, I’m coming home

Selfish love, yeah, we’re both alone

The ride before the fall, yeah.

But I’m gonna take this heart of stone

I just got to have it all.

I’ve seen your face a hundred times,

Everyday we’ve been apart

I don’t care about the sunshine, yeah

’cause mama,

Mama, I’m coming home

I’m coming home

You took me in and you drove me out

Yeah, you had the hypnotised, yeah.

Lost and found and turned around

By the fire in your eyes

I’ve seen your face a thousand times

Everyday we’ve been apart

And I don’t care about the sunshine, yeah

’cause mama,

Mama, I’m coming home

I’m coming home

~PART II~

“Time For Me To Fly”

I’ve been around for you

I’ve been up and down for you

But I just can’t get any relief

I’ve swallowed my pride for you

I’ve lived and lied for you

But you still make me feel like a thief

You got me stealin’ your love away

‘Cause you never give it

Peeling the years away

And we can’t relive it

I make you laugh

And you make me cry

I believe it’s time for me to fly

You said we’d work it out

You said that you had no doubt

That deep down we were really in love

Oh, but I’m tired of holding on

To a feeling I know is gone

I do believe that I’ve had enough

I’ve had enough of the falseness

Of a worn out relation

Enough of the jealousy

And the intoleration

I make you laugh

And you make me cry

I believe it’s time for me to fly

[Refrain:]

Time for me to fly

Oh, I’ve got to set myself free

Time for me to fly

And that’s just how it’s got to be

I know it hurts to say goodbye

But it’s time for me to fly

Oh, don’t you know it’s…

[Refrain]

It’s time for me to fly

[Repeat to end]

MAYBE I AM A PROPHET AFTER ALL… I POSTED BOTH OF THIS VIDEO ON 9/17

Lose Yourself

Eminem – Lose Yourself Lyrics On Screen HQ – YouTube

“Lose Yourself”

Look, if you had one shot, one opportunity

To seize everything you ever wanted in one moment

Would you capture it or just let it slip?

Yo

His palms are sweaty, knees weak, arms are heavy

There’s vomit on his sweater already, mom’s spaghetti

He’s nervous, but on the surface he looks calm and ready to drop bombs,

But he keeps on forgetting what he wrote down,

The whole crowd goes so loud

He opens his mouth, but the words won’t come out

He’s choking how, everybody’s joking now

The clock’s run out, time’s up over, bloah!

Snap back to reality, Oh there goes gravity

Oh, there goes Rabbit, he choked

He’s so mad, but he won’t give up that

Easy, no

He won’t have it , he knows his whole back’s to these ropes

It don’t matter, he’s dope

He knows that, but he’s broke

He’s so stagnant, he knows

When he goes back to his mobile home, that’s when it’s

Back to the lab again, yo

This whole rhapsody

He better go capture this moment and hope it don’t pass him

[Hook:]

You better lose yourself in the music, the moment

You own it, you better never let it go

You only get one shot, do not miss your chance to blow

This opportunity comes once in a lifetime yo

(You better)

The soul’s escaping, through this hole that is gaping

This world is mine for the taking

Make me king, as we move toward a new world order

A normal life is boring, but superstardom’s close to post mortem

It only grows harder, only grows hotter

He blows us all over these hoes is all on him

Coast to coast shows, he’s known as the globetrotter

Lonely roads, God only knows

He’s grown farther from home, he’s no father

He goes home and barely knows his own daughter

But hold your nose ’cause here goes the cold water

His hoes don’t want him no more, he’s cold product

They moved on to the next schmoe who flows

He nose dove and sold nada

So the soap opera is told and unfolds

I suppose it’s old partner but the beat goes on

Da da dum da dum da da

[Hook]

No more games, I’ma change what you call rage

Tear this motherfucking roof off like 2 dogs caged

I was playing in the beginning, the mood all changed

I’ve been chewed up and spit out and booed off stage

But I kept rhyming and stepped right into the next cypher

Best believe somebody’s paying the pied piper

All the pain inside amplified by the fact

That I can’t get by with my 9 to 5

And I can’t provide the right type of life for my family

Cause man, these goddamn food stamps don’t buy diapers

And it’s no movie, there’s no Mekhi Phifer, this is my life

And these times are so hard, and it’s getting even harder

Trying to feed and water my seed, plus

Teeter totter caught up between being a father and a prima donna

Baby mama drama’s screaming on and

Too much for me to wanna

Stay in one spot, another day of monotony

Has gotten me to the point, I’m like a snail

I’ve got to formulate a plot or I end up in jail or shot

Success is my only motherfucking option, failure’s not

Mom, I love you, but this trailer’s got to go

I cannot grow old in Salem’s lot

So here I go it’s my shot.

Feet fail me not, this may be the only opportunity that I got

[Hook]

You can do anything you set your mind to, man
