Hacked Democracy

Special tonight on HBO called "Hacked Democracy". Real interesting and downright scary documentary on how easy it is to hack an election. The Bush/Kerry elections were brought up several times and they proved how easy it is to simply modify the memory cards used during the electoral process through excecutable programs imbedded in the memory cards to completely sway the votes one way, in this case for Bush. Anyone else catch it?. If not, try to next time its on. Seems no matter how much shit anyone digs up with the current administration, they seem immune to it. Literal murder on a grand scale and getting away with it.

Watch the show. It isn't acceptable to change the voting system to use a method that is so easily abused without traceability. I missed a large portion of the show and was wondering if the memory cards can be analyzed to see if there are any .exe programs on them. Jim

Two things you want to be ABSOLUTELY certain of:

( 1 ) Keep up your medication, you know how angry the voices get you get when you don't.

( 2 ) Be sure to keep your aluminum foil hat handy, it looks like you need it.
