Eat At Joes

Just a regular Joe who is angry that the USA, the country he loves, is being corrupted and damaged from within and trying to tell his fellow Americans the other half of the story that they don’t get on the TV News.

Breaking: Senator George Allen (R-Virginia) Has His Staff Attack a Marine (One of Allen’s Constituents) Who Asked Him a Question at a Public Event

Earlier today Republican Senator George Allen of Virginia had his staff attack a Former US Marine, Mike Stark, who is one of Allen’s constituents when Stark asked Allen a question at a public event. The three Allen staffers put a head-lock and a choke-hold on the Marine, wrestled him to the floor and pushed him out of a hotel where he had simply asked his senator a question about matters of public record that Allen refuses to answer. Allen, who never served his country in the armed services, is running against a decorated war hero and former Marine, wounded in Vietnam and winner of the Navy Cross who was also a Reagan Administration Official (now a Democrat) named Jim Webb. Stark served our nation in the US Marines for four years and is currently completing law school at the University of Virginia.

Senator Allen responded, “Well, those things happen.”

Our US Constitution guarantees Americans the right to petition our government including our elected officials. It guarantees us the right of Free Speech.

So why was a US Marine choked, manhandled and physically thrown out of a public place by a US Senator’s staff? “Well, those things happen” when the elected official is a Republican who feels he is above the law and doesn't need to answer his constituents.

Republican Vote Hacking Going On Across the Country – a Very Scary Halloween!

Throughout our nation voters are reporting that when they vote for one candidate, a different candidate (always the Republican candidate) is being displayed as having received the vote. Only a small percentage of the voters are noticing that their votes are being hi-jacked. This is going on in South Florida, St. Louis County, Missouri, Arkansas, San Antonio and Dallas. There are even more reported here. There are more cases of it happening here and here and here.

In every instance of Vote Hopping, the votes are hopping over to the Republican candidates. They are never hopping over to the Democratic Party candidate or any other party. Imagine that. Every single time, the Republicans benefit from this “error.”

This happened all across the country in the 2004 elections especially in the Swing States. The Electronic Voting machine companies tried blaming on voters being confused, but in many cases the elections judges witnessed the problems. Then the Electronic Voting machine companies said that they had fixed the problem. But guess what? It's happening in the 2008 election. No wonder President Bush and Karl Rove are certain that the Republicans will win the election.

It is a statistical impossibility that every single “random error” would benefit the Republican Party. Let’s not be naïve, we all know what is going on here. We expect that in the USSR, but not the USA.

Our only defense is to vote early and demand a paper ballot that can be recounted accurately afterwards. They will run out of these paper ballots, so that is why you must vote early. If they refuse to give you a paper ballot, contract your local newspaper, radio and television stations complaining that they refused you a paper ballot to insure accountability. Bring a video camera and if you have to vote on an Electronic Voting machine, video record your voting on it. If your vote hops to the Republican candidate, that is the evidence we will need to prosecute these criminals.

It is time for the American people to take our nation back. If they will not let us do that by allowing us to vote them out of office, we must publicize their voter fraud. Eventually every American will know. We will take our nation back.

Vote to take our country back on Tuesday, November 7, 2006!

This Halloween Beware the Anti-Christ and his Supporters

What I don’t understand is why all Christians aren’t opposed to the death penalty and torture. Jesus himself was the victim of the death penalty: an innocent man executed by the state. The only other time Jesus was presented with the death penalty is when religious leaders brought a woman caught committing adultery before Him to be stoned to death according to the law. Jesus got her accusers to drop the issue and their stones and Jesus pardoned her. Jesus himself was the victim of torture being scourged at the pillar, crowned with thorns, stuck with a spear and nailed to a cross hanging there until he died.

Jesus never advocated the death penalty and in fact opposed it. Jesus never advocated torturing enemies and instead said that we must love our enemies and pray for our persecutors. He said this more than once as it appears in slightly different versions in different Gospels and fundamentalists believe the Bible is inerrant and therefore it couldn’t be that a particular Gospel writer got it wrong. Jesus had to have said it at least twice. So how do Bible-believing Christians square support for the death penalty and torture with their claim that they follow the teachings of Jesus? They sometimes raise the fact that the Old Testament says an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth, but Jesus himself refuted that:

Ye have heard that it hath been said, an eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth; but I say unto thee, that ye resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turned him the other also. Ye have heard that it hath it said, thou shalt love thy neighbor, and hate thine enemy. But I say unto you, love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you and pray for them that despitefully use you and persecute you. (Matt. 5: 38 -44)

As well as:

Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God. (Matt. 5:9)


Blessed are the merciful for they shall obtain mercy. (Matt. 5:7)

It’s clear that Jesus is anti-war, anti-death penalty and anti-torture. So Bible-believing Christians’ support for war, execution and torture of detainees is based on what? The opposite of Jesus’ teachings. And who is the opposite of Christ? The Anti-Christ. Who is the biggest proponent of war, the death penalty and torture? The president, who took us into a preemptive war, executed more people than any governor in history and fought so hard for torture and retains the right to declare anyone an enemy combatant and to define what is and what is not torture despite what the Geneva Conventions says. In short: the Anti-Christ is George W. Bush. Will Bush’s supporters be caught up in the rapture or are they caught up in their support of Christ’s opponent?

We report. You decide.

The Republicans keep saying that if the Democratic Party wins on November 7, then the terrorists will have won. But if the Republicans win on November 7, the Anti-Christ will have won. Which is worse? As the Republicans political ads say: Those are the stakes.

Vote on November 7 to put a stop to the Anti-Christ from winning.

Why You Must Vote to Change Congress on Nov. 7

Every day we learn about more corruption committed against the American people by our leaders in Congress. For too many years they have arrogantly thumbed their noses at the people and at our nation’s laws in order to line their own pockets (Hastert’s land deal and Frist’s stock deals to name but two) and the pockets of rich lobbyists (Jack Abramoff and his dozens of congressional paid off lackeys including Tom DeLay and let us not forget Randy Duke Cunningham now in prison for taking bribes from lobbyists to win them illegal contracts). Three Republican members of Congress have now been identified as preying upon underage boys for sex and the Republican leadership let it go unchecked and covered it up for years. The lists of documented lies, cover-ups and crimes are too long to list here: all taking advantage of the American people who pay their salaries and expect them to represent us not the lobbyists.

Congress has failed in their sworn duty to provide oversight on the White House and bled our tax dollars and our sons and daughters’ lives in a war of convenience that has made us less safe from terrorists.

The lists of documented lies, cover-ups and crimes are too long to list here: all taking advantage of the American people who pay their salaries and expect them to represent us not the lobbyists.


It is time to take back our country from these criminals.

There is a very good chance that many electronic voting terminals and vote counting machines will be hacked to throw a percentage of the votes to the Republicans. They have been found stealing votes from Libertarians as well as Democrats. But if enough Americans vote for change, they will need to steal percentages of votes in the double digits. Exit polls will expose this as they have in illegal voter fraud ridden elections all over the world. They were caught stealing single digits in key swing states in the 2004 election, and doing so raised suspicion (and will hopefully result in investigations and prosecutions). But if they have to steal 10, 20 or more percent of the vote and the exit polls show this, the theft will be obvious. They will either lose the election or will expose themselves to the nation and the world as criminals and the media will have to report such an outcome. We the people will demand it.

If you are a patriotic American registered to vote (and you better have registered if you care about our country) you must vote on Nov. 7. Vote early. If you have to vote on an electronic terminal ask for a paper ballot that can be recounted accurately afterwards. They may run out of these so that is why you must vote early. If they refuse to give you a paper ballot, contract your local newspaper, radio and television stations complaining that they refused you a paper ballot to insure accountability. If they are going to try to win this they are going to have to be painfully obvious about the theft to the nation and to the world.

Vote for change on November 7, 2006!

It is your patriotic duty to our nation.
