Published: November 4, 2008 at 1:44 PMPlease vote! I wish I could, but I am a Canadian citizen living in the US...and to those Floridians who have yet to vote, PLEASE vote NO on proposition 2!!! This will greatly affect my life, so I deeply pray it gets voted down

Published: November 4, 2008 at 3:52 PMI voted. No wait, which goes to show you that long waits to vote aren't inevitable. If someone has to wait hours to vote, that shows that someone in charge decided not to send an adequate number of machines to that polling place. Talk about the real vote fraud!

Published: November 4, 2008 at 11:59 PMHall of Presidents is going to be awesome! Think about it: 42 white dudes and one African American and after the African American speaks, Abraham Lincoln! This show is going to take on new symbolic value!
Published: November 5, 2008 at 12:15 AMAmen! Like Ive said before, this is really the only place to see all 44 Presidents side by side, and it will really paint the perfect picture of how far this country has come from President Lincoln to President Obama
Published: November 5, 2008 at 5:58 AMWe've heard a lot of talk about CHANGE for the last year or so, and not one word about limiting the production and use of the Vekoma Boomerang. It is as if no one is listening! I just don't understand. Maybe the new president will take this matter much more seriously than did his predecessor. One can only hope.

I think that maybe Disney ought to let the new president speak, again, this time. I suspect the reaction would be a bit more welcoming that when W spoke.
Published: November 5, 2008 at 8:18 PMRobert, check out this article (I posted it on another thread). The prez will speak if he wants to...it is not entirely up to Disney. They will ask, but he has to agree. Clinton and Bush agreed (despite the jeers/cheers that both their animatronic clones received), and Obama doesn't seem to shy away from the limelight, so I am sure he will toe the [party] line as well. ;)

Gotta say, the response to Obama is huge in Canada. Congrats to him and congrats to McCain for fighting valiantly.
Also, I'm a dual citizen but could not figure how to vote if I was born and currently reside in a different country. Wanted to vote, but couldn't figure out how.

There would be differences, such as some ballots would require you to write in your choice and would not include any state issues unless you have a specific state address for your registeration and residence for at least part of the year. Kind of like the snow-brids who flit back and forth depending on the weather where they are at.

LJ, you gotta get involved. The kids in the district deserve a great school board, one that won't waste any money. Bond issues can be a great way for a district to save operating costs by modernizing, but great management has to be there. In the long term, defeating bond issues won't cause a board or a management to change. Electing better school board members will. That's what we did in Pasadena several years back. Please, all TPI readers, get informed and involved with local school politics. Your communities will be so much better for it.
