Alas, it has been brought up repeatedly since 2000. There are numerous
websites referring to it, and numerous hearings, press releases, etc. Here's
one for example:
I have signed quite a few petitions demanding that something be done about
this, but it takes a lot of pressure to move some bureacrats - especially
those who are not technologically savvy, and, for the conspiracy-theory
minded among us, those who seek to gain by the lack of paper trails and
other checks of computer -voting. A grandmother in Seattle has shown
repeatedly how easy it is to switch huge volumes of votes at central voting
headquarters, where all the precinct results go to one computer, like the PC
you are using right now. Some places demanded (and got) paper trail voting
machines. But such places were a tiny minority.
Having read the list on your site below, I'd have to say I guess one man's
"accomplishment" is another man's nightmare. Just today, the official in
charge of our national forest policy was quoted in our newspaper, The
Spokesman-Review, as announcing with great relish that 80% of the forests
designated as critical habitat for spawning salmon were now completely open
for indiscrimate logging and he told the assembled group of forestry
business execs, "we're happy to say that we've only just begun to make the
changes we would like to make in opening the national forests to more
If you regard this as an "accomplishment" to be proud of, you're on such
a different page that I fear we're never going to meet in this book -or any
other.........And many of the same type of "accomplishments (for big
business and religious groups only)" are found on the list below.

Yes, Doug, I served over 30 years ago, and was, in fact, a graduate of
US Naval Academy. Of course, you would know nothing about that sort of
thing. And yes, our son is doing his part, too, not that you would
understand that, either.
What I *do* know is that a leader has to earn the title. Anyone who follows
a faker into war shames their country and has no business calling themselves
a patriot. A robot, perhaps, but certainly not a patriot. Since it is a fact
that we now have a faker in the White House, the rest follows logically.
You would think that a graduate of the belly button academy would have more
sense than you do, Denny. But then again, a good soldier does what he's told
without question even if its to jump off a cliff like some mindless lemming.
Blindly going off to an undeclared war for oil for the rich for some faker
awol chicken hawk former alcoholic cokehead is not patriotism. It is
stupidity of the highest degree. Your son will be nothing more than cannon
fodder for terrorists just like the many unfortunate victims before him.
The American people need to speak up and say they have had enough of this
bull shit and have Dubya and his cronies thrown out of office. They should
impeach the bastard for abusing his office. Most of his cabinet have already
abandoned him like rats abandoning a sinking ship.
If you are typical, it's no wonder that people who aren't taken in by
television propaganda think of "America's Finest" as arrogant, ignorant and
As for doing his part aka abetting political change through violence, well
no, you wouldn't understand hypocrisy would you.

The Canadian Refugee System
Refugees and persons needing protection are people in or outside Canada who
fear returning to their country of nationality or habitual residence. In
keeping with its humanitarian tradition and international obligations, Canada
provides protection to thousands of people every year.
Through its refugee protection system, Canada offers safe haven to persons with
a well-founded fear of persecution, as well as those at risk of torture or
cruel and unusual treatment or punishment.
France is a traditional country of immigration: for over 150 years, while other
countries have been combining high birth rates and emigration, France has been
taking in foreign populations to prevent her demographic decline. Even today,
immigration is still in some cases put forward as the remedy for the ageing of
the national population.
Arch defender of human rights, France also likes to think of herself as a land
of asylum for political refugees. Since the beginning of the last century she
has taken in, inter alia, Italians, Poles, White Russians, Ukrainians,
Armenians, Spanish Republicans, Chileans and Asians. In 1952, France signed the
1951 Geneva Convention which governs current asylum methods and created the
Office français de protection des réfugiés et apatrides (OFPRA – French
Office for the Protection of Refugees and Stateless Persons).
