How about changing your name to The BushCo Agenda Department?

The Feds are investigating whether a U.S. voting machine company paid bribes to Venezuelan officials in order to win a contract in Venezuela. The parent company is owned by Venezuelan investors who may have ties to BushCo enemy Hugo Chavez.

While I always applaud the investigation of fraud, I can't help pointing out here that Diebold, whose crimes are too numerous to mention here now (especially with TGIF nearly upon us), continues to operate with impunity. The officers and directors of Diebold, who have lied and dissembled time and time again about the technology and systems upon which our most important right relies, walk the streets of this nation, scot free.

So yeah, let's for chrissakes make sure no one in any office of elections in VENEZUELA got bribed at all. That's an excellent priority. Good job, Justice Department. You continue to surprise and delight.

Bribery happens in other countries, too?

It's so nice to come back and see that Vikki has not lost her touch. You forget that Diebold is a proud Amurican company that definitely does NOT hate freedom. And you also forget that it goes both ways. Obviously there's NO WAY the Democrats really won the last election. Clearly there was tampering that took place to put them in power. Nevermind the fact that most have now woken from their slumbers and realize that Dubya Inc. are a bunch of stupid-ass, lying cocksuckers.

Kiki: Oh yeah, that big Australian wheat scandal that we heard all about for months here in the US...

Grant: It is surprising, considering that unlike the US, it is illegal in most other countries.

Chris: Dude, you were only gone for like, a week. It just seems longer to you because you are not living in a place where it's 75 degrees and sunny every goddamn day.
