    True to both posts above, but there had to have been a concerted effort to make supporters of these two causes aware prior to the petitions being posted in order to gather that many signatures in such a short span of time. That's what I meant by "rigged."

    I think the TSA thing just happened and is gathering a great deal of steam.

    Deja vu all over again:

    "Five years of Prohibition have bad, at least, this one benign effect: they have completely disposed of all the favorite arguments of the Prohibitionists. None of the great boons and usufructs that were to follow the passage of the Eighteenth Amendment has come to pass. There is not less drunkenness in the Republic, but more. There is not less crime, but more. There is not less insanity, but more. The cost of government is not smaller, but vastly greater. Respect for law has not increased, but diminished."

    I dislike potheads and the cynical use of "medicine."
    Count up to 10,500+
    Twice the signatures needed within 30 days collected in less than 24 hrs!

    Be nice if this got some media coverage. 10,000 votes in less 24 hrs on a Friday is pretty impressive.

    Ye have little faith. There are plenty of ways to browse the Internet and free email (gmail, yahoo, etc) you can use, heck I have 4 domains that a throw aways(untraceable and lead in circles) and each has unlimited email accts. Vote early vote often.

    She should be the one that is worried. I suspect she has been added to many of our "domestic excrement" lists. ;)

    Maybe we should create a hashtag on Twitter - although maybe it's already been done....

    Yes, but several of the redditors apparently thought it was a fake website because it was "wwws.whitehouse.gov" instead of "www.whitehouse.gov."

    Don't get me started on my opinion of the average redditors intelligence - which would be barely higher than the average TSA clown.

    Yeah I know what you mean and some days your giving them alot more intelligence then the typical (expletive deleted). Geez apparently there mods arent keeping up with the times because there are a whole host of www protocols and addresses now and wwws is just one of 15 I've seen.
