Today is the day we have all been waiting for: Election day. Today America has the opportunity to send the Obama's on a walk of shame in January. Today America has to opportunity to elect the 45th president of these United States. I have a test this evening, classes to sign up for for next semester in less than an hour and am so anxious I cannot begin to stand it, so I will make this short:
Vote for Mitt!!!
On another note, just as in 2008, members of the New Black Panthers have been spotted outside of a Philadelphia polling location today. Last go around, there were two of them and one of them was carrying a club. This time, there is only one Black Panther and he doesn't have a club. Huge progress. Their goal is to intimidate voters in a swing state (Pennsylvania). As they have no direct involvement in the political machine, I find it completely inappropriate for them to be there at all. I would LOVE to walk by this idiot dressed as I am today and rub in his face that I most certainly did NOT vote for Obama. A Black Panther hitting a white girl just won't happen. Can you imagine the fall out from that? These thugs are there for intimidation purposes and have no legitimate power or place in the voting process.
This lovely painting greets voters at a Philadelphia voting location. In general, during an election a candidate or a candidate's representatives are not permitted to be within 100 feet of a polling location. Many states do not permit voters to wear political pins into the location and many also forbid the wearing of politically charged shirts while voting. This horrific mural cannot be kosher. If that is not a persuasion tactic then I don't know what is.
I went to public school (sad I know) and when we took that God awful TAKS test the teachers had to dismantle the room of everything that could potentially help/ influence us on the test. Anything that couldn't be taken down was covered up. If this school is not willing to paint over this, the least they should do is cover it up. My question however is whether or not this is a school that pushes liberalism on the children who attend. True it is Philadelphia, and most of the children probably come form democrat backgrounds, but if there si not a paining of the previous 43 presidents and they do not plan to put up a shrine to Romney should he win, I find this inappropriate. Elementary school children should not have anyone's doctrine shoved down their throats. Period.
