That was his name, that was the one I was referring to! I knew it was "crusader" but forgot the rest of his name.

Yeah, he was a nice guy. I didn't always agree with him, but he never caused any problems here. It would be nice to have him back.

that's soooofunny

Hmmmm... we need a Quantum-Flow Scientist in here to explain this!

Oh...wait.....


....and look who's here! *waves*



*Edge steps into FYM and waves*

*rippling waves of wildy edges colors form a space void-black hole in front of us. We peer in and see the past. A recording studio appears, and so does U2*

Stop, guys!
*the band startles and puts their instruments /microphone down*
Whaaaa...huh? wtf?
we can't release this now!
#@$@^ bloody hell! foock

*The Edge rolls out vivid charts showing various lines of
USA voter turnouts
*

See this, this, this and that! (pointer finger hits a particular spot the chart) I'ver been able to super upgrade, and fine tune my computers ..... I've got it... it's fucking weird, astonishing....
*Larry rolls eyes*
*Adam nudges Larryand whispers* Psst - you should know better!
*Adam & Bono lean foward*

We...WE are now the deciding factor in the USA Presidential Election!!!

*more colorful metaphors ensure! The guys follow Edge's
finger going through each graph-line and explainations. Slowly each pair of incredulous, doubting eyes begin to light up in comprehension!

*Still moar colorful metaphors abound. But this time they are of the "aha!" kind.*


The Ede turns to his bandmates....Do you all agree then on what we have to do?

*The rest of the band nods solemnly, which a chuckle*

Some were everyday Interference posters that never ventured into FYM, some signed on just to post in FYM, and some I suspect were alters. But not even one this year?

Well, you know, apparently despite disagreeing with many things Republican, as a Libertarian I'm just someone who doesn't want to admit they're a Republican.

Apparently

His son is super good at water polo and his family got a German Shepherd a while back so we chatted about that.

I'm hearing reports now that many members of the GOP are blaming Hurricane Sandy for being too liberal.

in Philidelphia the turnout for Obama areas are 20% higher than 2008.

Very high turn out in the Akcron Ohio area with alot of people voting for Obama.

That Big Bird in the voting line, how I wish that was real. Can you legally wear such an outfit to vote? I suppose if you don't have to show ID. That's hilarious. Address? Sesame Street. What precinct is that in?

I've also heard that voting in Obama areas in the Philadelphia suburbs is down this year, so who knows.

Also, it's Philadelphia and Akron.

IIRC, NBCrusader didn't leave because of pro-left bias, that's a given in FYM.
And he didn't leave because he was scared of an argument. We all liked him.
I believe he left because of the incessant insulting of Christians.

got an e-mail from a good friend of a good friend -seriously trustworthy on these matters (& in general)


### ALERTfor Any NYC Voters/ or NYC Voters you know ###

Quote:

According to WBLS, voters must be sure not to check “All Democrat” (or I presume “all Republican”) on the ballot. You must check every person you’re voting for. If you check “all democrat” or “all republican,” they stated that your presidential vote will not be counted. Please share this with others.
luckily i checked my e-mail

I wasn't implying NBCrusader when I gave my suggestions as to why so few Republicans came to FYM this time, if that's what you mean.

I think he left right before the Christian bashing began, but if he ever felt like coming back, I could see why he would feel uncomfortable.

No, just making a general comment, not towards you, Pearl.
