Obama in NW ohio

by Willy / October 12, 2008 1:30 PM PDT

He's staying roughly a few miles down the road sorta speak. He visited a local neighborhood and plans to rally in downtown Toledo(SeaGate Center). Rally the troops and head on to the next debate.

Well, you can think all you want but Ohio is a state he's fighting to win, hard, IMHO.

off soapbox -----Willy Happy oh yeah, undecided still

Informal survey of political front yard signs in Ohio

I travel the state in my work. Within my city, you'll find Obama signs outnumbering those for McCain by better than 2 to 1...maybe 3 or 4 to 1. While the polls here have Obama leading, I didn't think it was by that much. But, I think I found a possible explanation for the disparity in the number of signs. When traveling the far rural and farm country, it appears that all the Obama signs have been stolen and relocated to the cities. Maybe someone needs to investigate why this is happening. Happy

Oddly, enough that has been reported, stolen signs, everyone's. It appears besides the usual mischief, campaign people and maybe over-jealous voters have taken them to relocate. It is a crime to steal such signs and any sign for that matter. But, I thought we'll see the ring leaders or kids head put on the block. -----Willy

I've seen polls giving McCain a slight lead in Ohio.

This is where the voter fraud comes into play. Wouldn't take many fake votes to swing it to Obama.

Someone worked out the numbers and if only 16 more votes went to Kerry in each precint , Kerry would have won, so that is why the enormous fraudulent vote push is occuring.

That's assuming there was no Democratic vote fraud...

I don't think we're alone of such issues, but...

Because of the past 2 nat. elections, alot has been done or uncovered(weakness) yet the actions taken have stumbled. Districts using touch screen voting got into trouble and not to mention lost/missing memory cards also to include a possible glitch. An Ohio co. Diebold was picked in some areas and why when it seemed less capable. Ahhh!, they came in weak after performance results on election days. I'm glad we use the paper ballot scanner system which seems to be the winner overall and was in place long before the bally-hoo of the past 2 nat. elections. Heck, the Sec. of State had to wade in for some districts and get more involved that before. In our area, the local voting office is out of whack too, too much bickering. I'm glad to be in another county outside of a constant see-saw battle over there. At least no "hanging chads" to tally.

When I took the train to Detroit, I recall that after Fostoria, I knew Toledo was not far behind.

Deep family roots in Ohio. Beidler (no longer there), Marion. I wonder if what I think was called Marion Steam Shovel is still there.

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?
