If you want to check up on the story in post #1, the brother of the individual is going to be there in a few days.
If you want to ask them, one is President of the Federal Bar Association in Washington DC, and speaks only truth constantly, trust me, and will be at the:
June 4, 2008
Pentagon, DC, Capitol Hill, and Northern Virginia Chapters Joint HAPPY HOUR!
Time: 6:00-8:00 pm
Location: Front Page Arlington at Ballston, 4201 Wilson Boulevard, Arlington, VA 22203
Hors d’ouevres will be provided at no cost until they run out.
In addition, the FrontPage will have a 1/2 price burger night.
Questions: Email william . fischbach @ us.army.mil or silvio @ krvaric.com.
(DC Federal Bar Assoc., emphasis added). Wow, not bad, rubbing elbows with military brass for some reason.
I suggest you send Jim March to do the interview, he is not a chickenshit.
Tell Jim that Silvio ("Aaron of Fairlight") is brother to "Strider of Fairlight", and that both are famous crackers.
Not that it has anything to do with cracking voting machines or getting into places of power so as to be able to control election outcomes.
Hell no, it is only coincidence and only happens to them.
NO! What we really want to know is what they are having for Hors d’ouevres.
Report back ... its a votin thang dawg ... we are going to have the same hors as them at our next dawg and pony show ...

John, check this:
"In US Criminal law, means, motive, and opportunity is a popular cultural summation of the three aspects of a crime needed to convince a jury of guilt in a criminal proceeding. Respectively, they refer to: the ability of the defendant to commit the crime (means), the reason the defendant had to commit the crime (motive), and whether or not the defendant had the opportunity to commit the crime (opportunity). Ironically, motive is not an element of many crimes, but proving motive can often make it easier to convince a jury of the elements that must be proved for a conviction."
(Wikipedia). Members of the EI movement constantly cite the vulnerability of electronic voting machines as giving opportunity to crackers (a.k.a. hackers).
Within bradblog software there is the work of a self-proclaimed hacker who goes by the name of strider and strider72 who wrote a plug-in that is used in the blog software.
If any evoting machine company used a plug-in written by a self-proclaimed hacker on its evoting machines, what would be said of it in terms of the notion of opportunity? Or the notion of means?
Remember, motive generally does NOT have to be proven for a conviction of a crime, it is just icing on the cake.
I know what should be said, that the code should be supplied to all of us programmers at bradblog, and we should hang together and check it out so we don't hang separately, but will it be said?
Pray for me John ...

Dredd #1 - I'm sorry. The election corruption is where? I will admit to only reading the first two grafs before I stopped and skimmed the rest of the article but, unless you mean the SD GOP not interviewing this author for its endorsement as a candidate, I don't see any election issues mentioned.
As for the rest of your comments, this is all totally out of my web of concern. I care, but not anywhere near as much as you apparently do. And in a few hours the only thing I am going to care about is how deep to fish and whether the herring bait is fresh.

You mention the wily Alaska Salmon! I used to limit out during lunch down on the Kenai Penusula at the Kenai river.
One interesting trait (in election terms) is that they always return to their place of birth. Exactly.
Like Aaron of Fairlight, the "nickname" on Amazon dot com for Silvio Krvaric, the little brother of the mysto election dude (Strider of Fairlight) I mentioned.
They have returned to Fairlight, their cracker place of birth, and now they are in influencial places where they can effect the outcome of elections.
And their copycat strider72 aka strider can even effect the way your postings here work John.
Not to worry John, catch a big one for us and we will try to catch a big one for you!

I hope John did not think "registered pedophile was employed as a clown" in the article was a reference to Senator Craig (R-Closet).
I was simply pointing out that the "things done as a child" defense that Strider advanced when he was outed as a famous cracker, does not fit his fascist tactics NOW to not give a fair chance to the other republicans running for office there in San Diego. He is still a dangerous ideologue.
I memorialize those Masters of Peace, who live and let live, and have only disdain for the Masters of War, who kill and let kill.

Aaron of Fairlight, as chief homeowner dude at Kingston Chase, "Silvio believes in transparent government". And he is a drug pharmaceutical litigation lawyer.
Well, we might just have a bipartisan thingy here? Can he help us get some 10 million emails from the people's house (where preznit blush now lives).
Or at least help Brad some on this transparency issues?
Or does "transparency" mean I can look at all your stuff but you can't look at mine?

Please see what I'd hoped would be my final response to your ridiculous line of attack in yesterday's DVN. But since you keep referring to "transparency issues" of software here at The BRAD BLOG and suggesting that "the code should be supplied to all of us programmers at bradblog," we use Wordpress here, which is Open Source.
If you find any security concerns, of course, you are free to reach me via email as you do in other cases. And yes, as I mentioned in the previous post that I referred you to, we have security concerns here all the time. The one you mention, as I have responded to you now several times, is not one of them. And I'd appreciate it if you stopped using up comment threads for your personal hobby horse, unless and until there actually is something worth riding because you're really serving as an extraordinary distraction from legitimate discussion AND serving to annoy the crap out of me at all once. So again, I ask you politely to please knock it off. Thank you.

Farewill Brad, here is my parting song for you and yepper:
Stake my future on a hell of a past
Looks like tomorrow is coming on fast
Ain't complaining 'bout what I got
Seen better times, but who has not?
Silver and gold
Won't buy back the beat of a heart grown cold
I gotta go
Find out something only dead men know
(Bob Dylan, Silvio).

Well, I'm (finally) getting around to inquiring about something in John's dvn that caught my eye about a week ago - and John's on vacation! Maybe someone will respond to this. I'm befuddled by an article in a Wheeling, WV. paper linked to by John that reported that only one percent of the voters in Ohio in the March primary who had the opportunity to use paper ballots actually used them! 99% used the machines! What gives here? I would have thought the folks up there in the Buckeye would have jumped at the chance to use paper. Anybody else in here happen to read that link? May 17th I think. If the report is accurate, what are we to make of it? Are we banging our collective heads against a brick wall the size of the one in China?
