I Confess
 

I Confess was a discussion we had in the early days of MysteyNet. I thought it would be fun to bring it back and see how it goes.

You can confess your truest feelings here or just everyday things.

We are here to listen, so confess away.

Well, I've noticed there's one of those ...for dummies books to deal with divorce...

Sorry Fran, I didn't post the link that that the party affiliation was changed...here it is: h++p://bellaciao.org/en/article.php3?id_article=4001

Towards the beginning it reads:

"ACORN said an employee it fired has falsely reported voter fraud to get back at the organization.

"He was terminated for a number of violations of ACORN rules. He wanted his job back, we wouldn’t give it to him," said Faith G@y. "He is trying to put the spotlight on the entity that fired him."

She said she was unaware of problems with registration forms turned in by its employees. The group registered 212,298 voters in Florida this year. It hired about 200 people as part of the registration drive.

Among problems that have been reported to the state:

3,000 photocopied registration forms were turned into Leon County elections officials. Most switched voters’ party affiliation to Republican without their knowledge.

Alachua County learned people had their party affiliation changed to Republican against their will. The problem was discovered in a batch of 1,200 forms turned in by one man. Each of the forms registered voters as Republican."

last post about it here....promise...but my subride took me here first :(

You can check out anytime you like...but you can never leave!

I"m not understanding maybe, but switching the registration party affiliation would not matter because those people would still vote democrat when it was time to vote. I wonder what they feel the advantage was in that. My last word in here too - it's a sorry state of affairs when voting is tampered with, by anyone of any party. But what Acorn did was blatant fraud on a pretty grand scale and a lot of those voters voted the same day. Let's go on over to Debate if we have any more to say. Even though this is a general topic discussion, I can understand if anyone doesn't want to read about politics! Sorry, guys.

For most of history, Anonymous was a woman--Virginia Woolf

I confess... I will be very glad when the election is over and friends stop trying to convince me to vote for "the other fellow"

I Confess, I don't know if any of you had been following the story about Academy Award winning actress and AI contestant, Jennifer Hudson, whose mother and brother were found dead and her nephew missing. They have just located the car they were searching for and there is a body of a child in it, presumably, the nephew. Very sad.

I confess...started using wrinkle cream and dyed my hair...now my face is darker and my hair is wrinkled...whassup with that?

It was the nephew.

I confess being saddened at the news that one of my favorite authors has passed on...Tony Hillerman.

Oh no, Tony Hillerman died? Thanks for the tip Ruby, I will post it in his discussion. You know, he actually came here and posted in his author discussion?

I Confess, I don't like the bugs that summer brings either Bella, but I do like summer now that I am in Maine and we don't get too many of those humid, hot days. Winter is probably a little harder on my body, but I used to hate it in Philly, Here it is beautiful in winter once the snow comes.

Is that why they're called bugs? Because they bug people?
