Is the race for the GOP nomination already over?

The Republican National Convention is scheduled for August 27th through the 30th, 2012 in Tampa, Florida.

I expect turnout to be above average as the electorate seems to be more polarized now than in recent years.

Diebold Screen Touch voting machine hacked for $26

Good story about this over at Salon or the Brad blog......

I think this is one of the biggest threats to our country at this time in our history. Electronic voting is the work of the devil and his kind. So far our government hasn't done one damn thing to fix or eliminate it either.

The other way we're subsidizing Walmart...

Most of us know how taxpayers subsidize Walmart's low wages with billions of dollars in Medicaid, food stamps, and other financial assistance for workers. But, did you know that we're also subsidizing the retail giant by paying the cost of their environmental destruction.
