Nothing partisan here, of course...

Nader temporaily back on Florida ballot.
At least long enough for absentee ballots to be printed with his name on it, as the state appeals a decision banning his name from appearing. And, of course, Jeb Bush being Governor is purely coincidental...

So why don't you tell the WHOLE TRUTH Dave. Jeb Bush has nothing to do with Nader being removed from the ballot to begin with. The Democrats are the ones that don't want the competition and fighhting the state to get him off the ballot...

In a dizzying turn of events, Florida Secretary of State Glenda Hood returned Nader to Florida's presidential ballot yesterday, as lawyers for the Democratic Party, the state and Nader sought emergency court hearings to settle a dispute over whether the independent candidate can appear there.

Florida Circuit Court Judge Kevin Davey issued a temporary injunction last week preventing the state from putting Nader on the 2004 ballot, siding with a Democratic challenge that the Reform Party, which has endorsed Nader, did not qualify as a national party under state law. The secretary of state's office in effect reversed the ruling, telling election supervisors preparing absentee ballots that Nader is a candidate...

You're just as bad as those DNC lawyers down there trying to cheat Nader out of running by trying to point the finger at Jeb and blaim it on him. Your LIE is revealed...

Did you notice, Clay...

Clay, when you read the story did you notice the words, "As a result, she said, Florida's Department of State had filed an appeal against the temporary injunction. The appeal application automatically lifts the injunction, allowing the counties to put Nader's name on overseas absentee ballots, which must be mailed by Saturday."?
That's what Dave K. hoped you wouldn't notice, because his political propaganda changes "automatically" to Jeb Bush.

Nah, I didn't read his link, it was old news by the time he posted it. I already knew why Nader's name had been removed in Florida and who had sued to have it removed. The DNC has been feverishly working the whole country to keep Nader off the ballot. Dave's supporting this really shows his true character.

You're wrong, Dave.

It is definitely politically motivated. What are you thinking? Bush being governor is not a coincidence by a long shot!

live in a Democracy where ANYBODY can run for President, not where either a Dem or a Rep could use legal tactics to force a possible candidate from the ballot.

We live in a country that has a morass of election laws. Everyone tries to use them to their own benefit. Both parties, every election.

Hi Toni,
That sort of action is the democrats' idea of free speech.
Using legal powers to prevent someone from being a candidate is more akin to a far left, or a far right political agenda.

Carbidopa/Levidopa or Pramipexole Dihydrochloride is right for you.

That viciously jerking knee doesn't have to rule your life!

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
