Whew, thank Lao-Tsu we have people with "feelings" policing the polls,

The poll watcher, Gervis Leger of Auburn, backed off when he was told he'd have to sign an affidavit swearing he had direct knowledge that the women weren't eligible to vote. Leger said this was his first time as a poll watcher and just had a funny feeling about the women.

Awwww he almost prevented two legal immigrants from voting. Hey welcome to our country, only if you don't look diffrent! Isn't this 2012?

Now to be fair.

If two white Americans were voting in Somalia do you think they might be challenged?

Think about it!

Racism and xenophobia at its best. Some people would love to resurrect jim crow laws.

I'm assuming the women were Muslims and wearing headscarfs,since 98% of Somalians are Muslim. Some racist republican poll watcher sees a hi-jab and has a panic attack.

Um, probably not if Somalia has an immigration policy for Americans.

I do believe it is issues like this, that are the reason why the u.s. government requested u.n. observers.

The u.s. is so, lol.




Did I just make an anti-american post?







Should I be flamed now?


Oh, woe is me.
