I really must protest your allegation of "fudging numbers". What is being fudged is how red or blue is determined, and who in fact runs the particular state. Here is another link; http://www.americanthinker.com/2013/09/the_myth_o...

Thanks for the explanation, CoolEdge. I'm not sure how any primary voter's intent (regarding who they might plan on voting for in the general election) could be verified... but your points are well taken. Especially as it relates to the pork-barrel spending.

Thanks, BG. I figured from the video that the security guy was probably completely full of it, from his ridiculous "I'm not dealin with it today!" remark. I would be interested to see if he is disciplined (or charged with anything) for his behavior.... but that will never happen.

the fliers said the tea party guy was trying to keep black people from voting. The other problem is they showed 1000's had already voted in the other primary so were no eligible. And the law says they have to intend to vote for that candidate in the general, not just cross over to elect the weaker candidate. Cochran is a big porker, bringing back like three times what MS pays in. Certainly…

I bet Quinn learned this from Dick Durbin - another INTIMIDATOR.

 Pedestrian Safety

Pedestrian’s Rights at Crosswalks

Pedestrian safety is always an important issue.  Particularly on multiple lane roadways, it can be a challenge for pedestrians to safely cross, even when utilizing a crosswalk.  Unfortunately, many motorists are unaware of their responsibilities regarding yielding to pedestrians at crosswalks, specifically at intersections where there are no signals or stop signs.  Likewise, many pedestrians attempt to cross when and where they should not.

The Illinois Vehicle Code states that the driver of a vehicle must yield or stop to allow for pedestrians to cross the road when the pedestrian is within a crosswalk and if the pedestrian is upon the half of the roadway in which the vehicle is traveling, or close enough to the opposite half of the roadway to be in danger.”  Drivers must stop, if necessary, to allow the pedestrians safe crossing, so they don’t remain standing in a traffic lane.  Pedestrians should note that the law also states that pedestrians shall not suddenly leave a curb and walk into the path of a moving vehicle that is close enough to create an immediate hazard.

Basically, pedestrians should always cross in crosswalks when they are available and wait for a break in traffic before attempting to cross any street.

@eyokley If Hillary doesn't run, there's a huge void and Nixon will have appeal. If she does, he has to be on the VP short list. #AmIWrong
