Domo arigato Mr. Nogatco

Today I joined forces with "a group of concerned world citizens that are calling for transparency and acknowledgement of a secret agency also known as NOGATCO (National Objectives for Governmental Astral-Terrestrial Covert Operations)." More later on this important project...

You lure me in with possible government conspiracy (a.k.a. the X-Files) and then give me a commercial for a rap album? You suck!

To the 'M' to the 'A' to the 'T', I say, "Amen."

(watch that wrap...)

There's a nice "conspiracy theory" for you, from Robert Kennedy, Jr. nonetheless. It's relatively mainstream to question the legitimacy of "W"'s 2000 victory. However, it continues to be "wacky" and outside the lines to question the 2004 election. Will this article begin to turn that tide?

In this case, "Believe the hype"

Ha ha, gotcha...

Well I am largely convinced.

This quote puts it into perspective:

"We didn't have one election for president in 2004," says Robert Pastor, who directs the Center for Democracy and Election Management at American University. "We didn't have fifty elections. We actually had 13,000 elections run by 13,000 independent, quasi-sovereign counties and municipalities."

When you look at it that way, believing that none of these was corrupt seems insane. And in Ohio specifically, the Republican party was both a.) in power and b.) extraordinarily corrupt.

Both Democrats and Republicans would have had motive to steal the election, but only Republicans had motive and opportunity.
