Tax Day Tea Party Signs

Two sources of images for Tax Day Tea Party signs, MarshBaby & Simon Jester.

For those of you who are not SciFi fans, Simon Jester is reference to Robert Heinlein’s classic The Moon is a Harsh Mistress, which was the Monday Book pick on January 26, 2009.

2018 update: Both the sites referenced are no longer valid.

I Question the numbers

Wednesday, April 8th, 2009

The city of Detroit, Michigan has more registered voters than residents over the age of 18.

Detroit election officials confirmed Monday what an analysis of census and population records shows: The city has more registered voters than it has residents over the voting age of 18.

He estimates that Detroit’s population is about 853,000, which includes 603,000 people over 18 — 30,000 fewer than the city reported as its total of registered voters.

“Even if you had 100% voter registration, which we know we don’t have, you could not have numbers that high,” he said. “Nationally, 67.6% of Americans are registered to vote. For African Americans, it’s 60.9%.”

No surprise, but the voting record in Detroit trends about 95% democrat. This is smelling like ACORN corruption.
