Military Absentee Ballots Delivered One Day Late, Would Have Swung Election For Romney

Military Absentee Ballots

WASHINGTON, DC – Sources confirmed today that hundreds of thousands of military absentee ballots were delivered hours after the deadline for them to be counted, with preliminary counts showing that they would have overturned the vote in several states and brought a victory for Governor Mitt Romney.

Officials say the ballots were delivered late due to problems within the military mail system. Tracking invoices show the ballots sat in a warehouse for a month, then they were accidentally labeled as ammunition and shipped to Afghanistan. At Camp Dwyer, Marine Sergeant John Davis signed for them and was surprised at the contents.

“I told Gunny we got a bunch of ballots instead of ammo,” Davis told investigators earlier today.  “He told me to file a report of improper delivery and that the chain of command would take care of it.  We didn’t hear anything for three weeks.  While we were waiting we came under fire so we dumped a bunch of them in the Hescoes.  We didn’t dig those ones back out.”

After military officials realized the initial error, the ballots were then sent back to the U.S. but suffered a series of setbacks.

Twelve boxes of ballots were dropped overboard during delivery to the USS Kearsarge (LHD-3) in the Persian Gulf, then while the ship sailed to Bahrain, postal clerks allegedly pocketed whatever ballots they wanted.

The remaining absentee ballots were loaded onto a C-130, but the flight was delayed until November 1st so the crew could get tax free pay for the month.  Once the ballots arrived stateside they were promptly mailed to each state’s counting facility, reaching their final destination on November 7th.

“It’s a shame,” Rear Admiral John Dawes said when asked for comment.  “I expected a delay so I ordered that everyone cast their votes eight months ago. It’s really unfortunate that our mail system failed us and directly affected the course of history.”

Upon hearing the news, angry Republicans have begun a demand for a recount, but most military absentee voters have shrugged off the news, with many wondering whether the care packages their families sent six months ago were ever going to show up.

  1. Instead of giving your opinion, call up your county Board of Elections and ask 1) how many absentee military ballots were sent out   2) how many absentee military ballots were received in time to be counted. 
        I called last week and was told 119 absentee military ballots had been sent out and 63 absentee military ballots were received in time to be counted.  In 2008, it was estimated that only 30% of the military ballots were counted for the election.  That is why in 2009 Congress passed the MOVE ACT which established that all Board of Elections had to send out absentee military ballots at least 45 days before the election and offices to assist American troops and their families in voting were to be established on every military establishment all over the world.  When the Pentagon’s Inspector General check to see if this was done, very few offices had been set up.
         A member of the VFW told me that when he was in the active service, the military had no interest in getting the troops to vote.  Since Congress passed the MOVE ACT in 2009, perhaps members of Congress would be interested in knowing the results of their efforts.  Tell them anyway, just to keep them informed.

  2. I am not the least bit surprised. Obama and his crew were successful in keeping the Military vote from counting in 2008 and even in 2010, so why do you think they would allow it in 2012? The fact is that most of the military is conservative and the vote would be probably 80% for Romney, it was imperative to squash the military vote. In addition they had to work hard and vote in thier place for Obama in the swing states. They may claim Obama was the person who will hold Office the next 4 yrs because of the votes but in our hearts we know that this is not the truth and Obama stole this election.

    • This is a satire piece, you moron. Not to mention the fact that even if it wasn’t, there still would not have been enough votes to win it for Romney. Your man lost, now quit kicking and screaming like a stupid little child.

    • @Jim Bragg
          You are correct…..  don’t know why the  ” unlike ” message came up ,  Sometimes the truth comes out in jest along with the satire.  Congress did take this seriously in 2009… enough to pass the MOVE ACT to make it more convenient for the military to vote.  Unfortunately, like with all government programs , just because there is a law does not preclude it will work.

  3. Gee I don’t know why everyone is so upset. The soldiers and sailors were able to cast their votes, the crew of the C-130 were tax free for another month, some of the ballots in the hescoes may have stopped some bullets meant for our soldiers, the fish in the Persian Gulf gained some reading material, and our military supply system did what it does best. What’s not to love about this article. You really didn’t expect military mail to arrive on time did you? That’s why everyone was supposed to vote 8 months early! Come on people, be happy, this is American Democracy in action. It’s not like there was voter fraud and votes were changed over to Charles Darwin.

    • @ShaunBiggers how about in Ohio where voting machines were changing votes from Romney to Obama and pole works were not shutting down theachines? Voter fraud?

  5. BS, The Republicans can not except defeat! The people have spoken and if this was true it would be in the courts not the blogs!

    he people have spoken and if this was true it would be in the courts not the blogs!

  7. I wouldn’t be surprised if this was true about the ballots, but spun into a “joke” type of story on this website.  How anyone in the US military could vote for Obama is beyond me!  When he scales back the military to nothing, as he says he’s going to do, where are you going to go?  He’s created no job here for you!

    • @4791ja They could write in someone. They could vote third party. Some DID vote for Obama. But, let’s say 120,000 of these pretend ballots were for Romney. There is no way that is enough to swing the election in his favor. Mathematically, it will not work. But, this is a joke article primarily making light how how long it takes for them to receive packages from home/things they buy online. If Romney had won, it would have been a joke about all of the lost votes for Obama. The satire is on military mail more than on ballots. Absentee ballots from military people are mailed to the appropriate state, then they are counted with the other absentee ballots. The presidential other nationwide elections aren’t the only ones on the ballot (usually). People voting absentee will want to vote in all the state and even local elections.

  8. this story seems like a load of shit to me. This seems like something that would be on FOX news. Don’t believe everything you read on here. Defiitely not all of us active duty military voted Romney. Obama won by a landslide and we wouldn’t have swung the vote. I know its total BULL

  9. Gosh, angry people will just about believe anything to justify their anger. Anytime you read outrageous news, first go check the “About us” page of the site. Just in case you’re too lazy to do so, here’s an extract: ”

  11. This I believe was no accident, if the votes were not there to be counted then they would not be able to be counted, this was all planned by the Obama Administration and was perfectly executed so that he could retain his presidency. Since the ballots have now arrived though, they should be counted and if Romney, Johnson, or any other candidate running for President did win then the announcement should be made publicly on National Television, and this mistake of announcing Obama as the winner should be rectified.

  12. DO NOT believe SNOPES. I have found them to be INCORRECT many times lately.  It’s a partisan site so I never go there for fact checking.  They are correct at times but not 100%

  13. Lets assume this is truth.
     
    Then, what is going to be done about it?
     
    The state  has shown in the past a tendency to punish wistleblowers instead of protecting them. The state will not do nothing to correct this.
     
    The American People have shown a tendency of being all words, no action. What good is the right to bear arms without the will to exercise it? The people will do nothing about it.
     
    Its interesting how people are all brave to go and fight wars for corporations, while being far to timid to take care of the domestic enemies. The military will do nothing.
     
    Its says that all that evil need to win is for good man to do nothing. Well, if that is the case, then the United States of America has turned into a demons paradise.  As people complain a lot, but still do what they are told. And pretty soon they wont even have the right to complain.
     
    The home of the timid and the land of the slaves.

    • @rxantos WHY would you assume THIS is true? This isn’t how they even send the ballots in anyway. They individually mail them as someone IN THE MILITARY already said. Also, people IN THE MILITARY are laughing about this article because it is fake. This site runs fake articles. The Onion in the civilian Duffel Blog… well, until Paul and TDB staff overran the ONN offices and efficiently suppressed competition. That article is on here, too. Just FYI. Also, one of the Reaper drones is sitting in his hanger smoking E cigs because he has PTSD.

    • @rxantos
      I elect you leader of the revolution.  Go demonstrate your convictions and show us how to do it.
       
       
      Or are you all words and no action. 
       
      If you don’t make the news by morning, we will know you are a poser.  No pressure though.

  14. BTW, I learned today that VICTORIA JACKSON was one of the first people to tweet this out as fact. Anyone who fell for her tweet… here is some advice: always double check the facts on anything she sends you, recommends, or (re)tweets. Despite her time on SNL, she has some troule recognizing jokes.

  15. Has no one mailed packages to someone in the military? Things can happen to those packages that your loved one eagerly awaits. At the end of the article, what are people upset about? The care packages. That is the “truth in jest” part of the article. The lost ballots would have been for Obama if Romney had won because THIS story is FAKE. Maybe other things happened to other ballots elsewhere, but THESE ballots are make believe. Sorry to spoil the joke.
    Also, the president isn’t elected by popular vote. It is the electoral college. So, while the popular vote is close, the EC vote is not. Maybe there needs to be a recount, but not because of THIS article. It is PRETEND.
    I DIDN’T VOTE FOR OBAMA OR ROMNEY. So, I have no dog in this fight, but this is getting insane.

    • @these things I say
       “Spoil the joke”.  You could beat half these people to death with a Clue hammer and they still would not get it.  And you did not vote?  Shame on you.  I voted for myself as a write in candidate.

      • @leftoftheboom I had to unexpectedly be hundreds of miles from home. But, I wasn’t going to vote for Obama or Romney. I was going to write in as well. But, I feel ashamed because I could have early voted, but I couldn’t decide who to support.

        • @these things I say  
           I will not tell anyone about your mission.  We all know that what happened to that guy was an “accident”.

    • Then go smoke your E-Cig and take your PTSD meds. You just proved you are CRAZY as He**!! and your comments towards Military personnel are as disrespectful as Obama is to the Military. Your right to make stupid comments, MY right to call you out on them!!

      • @Deborah126
        Do you realize the ignorance and stupidity of your statement?   You make jokes about PTSD and then tell someone else that they are making disrespectful comments about the military.
         
        Do you have some flesh eating brain disease or are you just a chronic moron?

        • @leftoftheboom @Deborah126 I think she is ranting about the reaper drone. The reaper drone is a machine. As in literally, it was made in a factory. It can’t really smoke E cigs or have PTSD. Except in Duffleblog articles. Because TDB is funny.

        • Oh, the clarification of what a reaper drone is for the benefit of Deborah. I believe she disrespected the military by not reading all of articles on this fine site. And for that PTSD crack.

        • I was making reference to a “drone” period, as in a worker bee I make NO jokes about PTSD. Your last sentence most likely describes yourself.

        • And as for you, I read a comment that YOU made that I felt disrespectful, I KNOW what drones are, you can find that comment to Left on your own. I make NO jokes about PTSD. Apparently you two cannot take a snarky remark, but can dish them out, For some reason, I just took a dislike to the both of you. and FYI, the story about late votes IS FACT regardless that this is a satire page or not. Also, I would NEVER willfully disrespect ANYONE in the troops, (sans you two, if active or vets) I have my reasons for that.

        • @Deborah126 then I have no idea WTF you are talking about. Sorry about the drone thing, the odd mention of E cigs and PTSD threw me off. Look, I haven’t been mean to you. I really haven’t. So, chill. Read some of the articles. Besides this one. Just try it.

        • @Deborah126 crack means a joke. So, the comment about my PTSD meds was what? A friendly reminder? Saying I was “crazy as hell” was what? A thoughtful medical diagnosis? I don’t smoke, btw. E cigs or otherwise.

        • I remember what most “slang” means….I have severe clinical depression. ONE reason I logged onto this site, I guess I mistakenly thought if I read enough posts from people I could ask some questions regarding my Dad… A faster way (like that would happen with the VA)…..other things, but I feel that I have said too much already. I will apologize for this…ALL my life Nov has been a bad month, one of my brothers died at Andrews….and Dec sucks as well….that’s when my Dad passed away.

        • @Deborah126 I am sorry about your father. Good luck with finding more information. Many veterans have sites for specific units, etc.

        • and thank you about my Dad. I only know about the archives in St. Louis..the other stuff is going to be harder if not impossible as he was stationed ..he worked at NSA, I never knew about THAT until long after he passed away…and now the VA has informed me that I have paperwork to fill out, monies owed to me and my other brother due to the granting of a disability claim on top of his pension…which truthfully I don’t want.

        • @Deborah126
          You want to take out some angst on someone feel free. That is what we do here. But unless the forum is about a joke on PTSD such as the Reaper, which I don’t believe you even read, it’s not a joke. It is hard enough for vets to seek help as it is precisely because people make jokes about it.
           
          You want to talk to someone.  Here is a novel approach, ask a question.

        • @Deborah126 The NSA posts declassified exit interviews with retirees. Try that. Maybe your father was interviewed.

        • @these things I say
          Fighting with the cellphone and praying to God Love hit the correct link
          Are: NSA I had mo clue about exit interviews
          Thanks very much

        • Another thing I had no clue about. Thanks very much. I KNOW he was with NSA before he married my Mom….MARRIED my Mom and sent to Japan…then I came along a couple years later.

        • @Deborah126
           Also SF180 is the form you can download, print and send to the address listed on the form by branch of service to request documents. However, there was a fire in the records depot and some records were damaged or destroyed.  I have no idea if that would effect your search but jut letting you know.

        • @Deborah126 The NSA interviews are on their website. Try googling your father’s name. Or his name plus your mother, your brother, and you. Or his name, plus NSA. Save your searches so you don’t lose them as you investigate. This may not be necessary, but just in case that is a way to get info… if slowly.

        • I had heard there was a fire, not sure how/if that affects my Dads stuff. PRAYING that his records are all there an intact. Have to download everything at a Library or career center as my printers are shot…all three missing power cords. thank you.

        • I know I have to get his DD-214 AND a copy of his death cert again as well. Lost pretty much everything I owned in Alabama…at the time, I had SOME of his paperwork. It’s just really important to me to get his records, not just Medical, but his service records, listing his ribbons, etc. I have found out several things he never told us growing up, such as a stabbing when he had not been in that long….maybe 7 months.I don’t have the list of ships/subs he served on. The thing I am really proud of is copies of his dog tags I just got..and that is THE easiest thing to obtain. My brother, right now is acting like a, well, he’s being a butt at the moment..so not speaking to him…I just refer to him as Marine or jarhead..and PLEASE I am NOT insulting anyone here… I heard years of him and my Dad trading barbs, but it was a good. They laughed about it. To BOTH These and Left..please accept my apology for a stupid comment….I WAS lashing out, and it was uncalled for. the chronic depression is terrible and Doc said I have slight PTSD, NOT to the degree of Military but, it’s awful. Call mine, (among other things, a POW effect) I really do appreciate the info you are throwing out here. Hey! in records, they will have copies-photos of all his ID cards, right? They grabbed mine @ 21…..of course. and no, I was never active, just everyone else, I worked on a couple Bases and DOD contractors. OH! also, another question, according to a buddy of my Dad said that he had heard a few stories of hairy ship/.sub I remember a story about 1 ship, at port…but again, no idea WHAT SHIP. Thanks very much again. I imagine files will be pretty thick, spent over 20 years in the Navy retired Chief. one more question before I forget it…..EARLY in his career, Honor Guard many times…that is., good inspections and the like, correct?

        • I just left a pretty long reply to your friend, which you will be able to see, correct? I have yet another question. When my Dad was still living, the whole family was kept track of on a regular basis, this continued after he retired from the Navy…and many years later, he told me that we were still watched. Vacations out of the Country had to be put in writing, where, when, how long, reason, etc etc. I literally begged him to tell me just one thing that he did and he refused (expect one thing, and only reason was it was declassified by then) back to the refusal, he told me that he knew things that were STILL being used in the Military. End of story, kept asking questions. The thing he told me…back in the early 60s during the Cuban Missile Crisis..he and another crypto were at radar and my Dad found the first Russian subs in our waters. That’s it. that’s all I got. So you know, he went in as a CTC I couldn’t find him listed at Arlington (I may have just missed it) but I created a Memorial for him at F.A.G. I know, I know….(findagrave.com) I appreciate the help from both of you very much after to such a bad start..and yes. being a marshmellow at heart….I …well nevermind. on the NSA site, I never tried the search with all our names.. so will try that…thanks…..and yes again, thank you both for helping me out here…and yes….I will probably get laughed at, but I cried….I hate it..cannot help it….it just happens.

        • @Deborah126
           For me, apology accepted and no hard feelings.  Sorry to jump so hard.  It’s just the day.  Sometimes I think too much and then speak before I think at all. 
           
          You said a magic word “Crypto”.  And pretty much that makes your dad someone who worked in intelligence, communications, or all at once possibly and depending upon which of those means that you might just not get a whole lot of information or if you do its going to be seriously edited.  The military does not throw away stuff that works and your dad could have been working something that still is in use or is in use because while the first world countries have better, the third world might be using it. 
           
          Don’t worry about Marine comments.  Those are allowed all day long.  You need any jokes I got em.  Besides, as your brother, you can pick on him all you want. 
           
          As for the rest, you are going to have to find someone Navy.  I can tell the big ones apart from the little ones but that is about it. Honor Guard might be for good stuff; when the Army said Honor Guard it was about being in a parade or ceremony for dignitaries or something like that.  Thats Army though.  I have no idea what that means for Navy.  You can hit the Navy page at the top and drop a question and see if you get a hit. 
           
          Don’t know about copies of ID Cards.  That is not going to be in there unless he had an official photo. 
           
          Did your dad retire?  If so, there are retirement offices at military bases.  They might be able to provide you with more assistance if you can contact them.  For that matter they might be able to help even if he did not retire.
           
          Good luck.  I post a lot.  It’s my “my shop is full of junk and I am too lazy to clean it out so I can work” hobby.

        • @Deborah126 I see everything in one column due to being on the phone. This is one reason I was confused before. I said it snarkily, but some things are harder to see. This being said, I have something for you that I hope will help. It is from the Soviet side, but maybe it will be easier to find Americans who spotted subs during the Cuban Missile Crisis: [url]http://www.gwu.edu/~nsarchiv/NSAEBB/NSAEBB399/[/url] My father was in the Navy, too. Unfortunately, I can’t get any info from him. But, when he was alive I got lots of info for him off the Navy’s site. His ship also had a newsletter which he received. If you can locate the name of one of your dad’s ships, you can get their newsletter. There may be several who recall your father if you’d like their memories of him. I kind of have the same thing you do. I am glad we’re all friends now. Hehe

        • Yep crypto! and he did all 3. I TRIED to reply last night and got sick of fighting that stinking phone!! tapping JUST to reply was a fight in itself. *sigh* Are you wishing now you didn’t give me that novel idea yet? hahaha Do you know that I went to Arlingtons actual website for gravesearch and I put in ALL data, even grave/section and I got a whole lot of nothing! You know, , well you don’t lol anyway, his nickname was Durk…but I used to hear his buddies call him spook, ghost. even ghosty and casper at one time…I’m REALY starting to believe that now…He is just…there is NOTHING that should be….things other people search for and find, Im coming up with nothing. It’s quite frustrating!!!! Other stuff to tell, but have to leave in a few to go take a peg test….for a job..A PEG TEST…oh well, you do what ya gotta do eh?

        • @TTIS omg….I have been using the cell quite a bit lately and just hate it..I cannot see anything, and I get colums as well, along with that banner from FB that I cannot 86 out. Think you said this… will have to read thru the comments, but I am very glad slates have all been cleaned and we talk….Are you catching the replies to Boom? or do I have to @ both of you?
          and just re=red the last of your comment..yes haha I’m glad we are all friends as well…and yeah you were snarky but I understand completely why now…you see more on the cell then I do..but it IS confusing. heh made me feel stupid. and thougt OMG they are gonna think I am this putz. Dad is in ONE newsletter (or was) that’s how he got in touch with Nolan….and that is how Nolan found out Dad passed. and just like you, I want to “connect” with ppl that knew him, that can tell me things I never knew…like NSA, never knew!! the stabbing Never Knew!! I DID know his clearance was top, and many times, eyes only and need to know…his travel partners were armed Marines and he carried a sidearm too, Never knew. That cyanide cap….well, he DID tell me that. I cannot wait to check that link you provided!! 🙂 will have to look when I get back, have to take a peg test..sounds like something you do in grade school for petes sakes!!! Glad I’m just down the street from the place!! heh……only takes about 5 min to get there. Better run, they may not let me take it if late, and job fair is tomorrow. NEED to go back and make sure all the likes are LIKED. hehe I really do appreciate what you two are doing very much. I’m very sorry about your Dad.

        • Took a quick peek before I run out the door….sub photo 28-29 October, 1962 28 Oct is my Dads birthday…maybe that’s a good sign 🙂

        • @Deborah126 i hope you found something. I was thinking your dad’s name may have been purged out of some crews. But, if you could look at his earlier postings, he may be listed as his job might (maybe) have been less sensitive… idk. But, smaller ships, it’s a good chance a shipmate would remember him. My search went easily because I could just ask my father questions since he was alive then. This makes me think, any ship/boat that seems a possibility, regular google it. There may be a veterans’ group. I think i am seeming all of your answers to lotb. Some, definitely.

  16. @ksbiz I have heard some did not get ballots. I always assume incompetence over malfeasance. Will try to check.

  17. @D_Marino4 And I care very much if “regular peoples votes are lost”. I care if military votes were lost. I care if any vote is lost.

  18. @D_Marino4 They may have been mocking the horrendous mail system for the military. But the story was fake. And absurd.

  19. @D_Marino4 Also, I tweeted at you b/c you linked to a hoax story. It was satire. You were passing it as real news. It is not.

  20. @D_Marino4 Like I said, if every vote is for Romney (and it sure wouldn’t be), it STILL wouldn’t change the results.

  21. @D_Marino4 A shame about the votes that really were lost. But it won’t change results. Even if every one (and that’s doubtful) was for R.

  22. @D_Marino4 And when you’re done, look at the “about us” page where they say everything on their site is “faux news”.

  23. @D_Marino4 Really? You just can’t admit you fell for it? Here’s another hint. Look at the other headlines at that site.

  24. my guatamalen housekeeper voted…for Obama.  She said he made her “baby” legal citizen.  Her “baby” voted too.  To thank him.  She said she got driver’s license and they gave her voter registration.  Every hispanic who O made legal under age of 30 thanked him by voting for him….that’s right America….hispanics voted our president in

    • @annabell
      They certainly helped push him over the top and for that we owe them a great big Thank You! Have you considered that by hiring illegal immigrants you’re encouraging more illegal immigration? You seem to want the benefit of cheap labor but you don’t want them staying, or to have the benefits that come with living in this great country and that’s fucked up.

    • In what state do you live? Did you bust her? Is she here legally? Are you harboring or hiring an illegal alien? What Hispanics that “O” made legal are you talking about? Are you talking about the Dream Act which hasn’t even happened yet? Spaniards are foreigners. Mexicans are foreigners. MOST Hispanics in America are Americans. THAT’S what really galls you, though, isn’t it? I’ll bet you don’t even know that this is a satire website and that none of the stories are true. I’ll bet you actually believe the story about missing military votes, don’t you?

  25. @brucesid @ChuckNellis You know maybe a looksy at the duffle blog’s ‘about us’ page would clue you. Or the other headlines they’re running.

  26. @e_tme I think we need to keep screaming FRAUD till the someone who has influence demands a full recount in swing states

         Obviously you didn’t read the entire article because it was debunking the “exposing snopes” article.  This is the problem with Americans people pay attention to about 2% of what’s said and make up the rest.  Educate yourself.

        • No, you obviously read too much into my purposefully sparse post. The article does exposes Snopes for what it really is, a valid source for fact checking.

      • Question why you believe what you believe from time to time. From the link you may not have clicked:
        “CLAIM: Snopes.com is ‘owned by a flaming liberal’ with a partisan bias.
        First off, it’s clear that whoever wrote this piece made it up as they went along. Anyone who has spent even a few minutes browsing Snopes.com knows that the website is owned by two people, not one. They are husband and wife David and Barbara Mikkelson of southern California. This is stated on the website and has been common knowledge for quite some time.
        “Second, the charge of partisanship is laid without evidence. At no time have the Mikkelsons publicly stated a political preference or affiliation, or expressed support for any particular party or candidate.
        Moreover, Barbara Mikkelson is a Canadian citizen, and as such cannot vote in U.S. elections or contribute to political campaigns. In a statement to FactCheck.org, David Mikkelson said his “sole involvement in politics” is voting on election day. In 2000 he registered as a Republican, documents provided to FactCheck.org show, and in 2008 Mikkelson didn’t declare a party affiliation at all. Says Mikkelson: “I’ve never joined a party, worked for a campaign, or donated money to a candidate”
        I have very little hope that presenting facts will get you off believing a lie, but I tried.

  27. Yeah sure… While this “duffelblog” story was intended as … uh..”satire” …the timing couldn’t have been worse, considering ongoing stories of poll tampering and the Black Panthers hanging out in front of voting venues.. The public, reading this blog, reproduced in ALL MANNER of emails, could  deffinitely assume the ring of truth.. I hope the idiots who wrote the story can understand how potentially damaging this could be to potential voters who have seen first hand how this administration has hidden the truth from them.. Even a lie, told often enough..becomes the truth..

    • @joker_1226
      Word on the street is that members of the Symbionise Liberation Army were also hanging out near polling places.

    • @joker_1226 who would have thought anyone would think this story is true? It is on a comedy website. It contains may ridiculous statements. People need to be mindful of what they pass along. Like, maybe thoroughly read it first and take a peek at its origin.

    • Make no mistake about it-there are now morons who think this story is absolutely true! They have no idea what this site is all about. They probably read the onion and believe THEIR stuff, too. I’ve already seen posts from people referencing this gag as a real news item.

  28. You guys do realize this is a fake news site. I’m laughing my arse off at you people really believing this stuff. Below is a disclaimer from thier own ‘About Us’ page:

  29. This site just gets the message out to the public. Check out Congressman Roscoe Bartlett ( MD-06 )  who with 30 other colleagues requested ex-Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi to move and pass H.R.5673 THE MILITARY VOTING PROTECTION ACT OF 2008 to to ensure overseas military had the opportunity to successfully vote in the 2008 election.  Although an identical bill had already been approved the week before by the Senate, Nancy Pelosi and the Democrat majority refused to move the bill to the floor and vote on it.
       According to Congressman Phil Gingrey ( GA-11)  ” In the last election cycle, 992,000 of our servicemen and women requested absentee ballots , yet only 330,000 were counted on election day. … ”
        It should not matter how the evidence gets out to the public.  What matters is that this problem occurs. Call up your local Board of Elections and ask about the absentee ballots for the military  By law, absentee ballots must be sent out 45 days before the election.  What we have to do is to make sure that these ballots are counted.  Call your state elected representatives, state secretary of state and governor of the state and demand that these military votes be counted.Elections are run by the state,not the federal government. The state secretary of state certifies the ballot , not the federal government.
         For those who questioned the Duffle Blog website as to what it was did not get an answer about if military ballots were not being counted or were arriving to the boards of election too late to be counted. Quite often comedy is used to present a problem to the public with the hope that those who hear it will further  investigate the issue.
      For those people who resorted to ridicule of the writers or foul language, this does not prove your point at all.  Bullying tactics are not the way to win a debate.

    • If you understand how the military absentee system works, they pressure you to request a  ballot. I  had to sign about 3 times this year that I requested a ballot, so thats you get a number like 992,000.  Thats including even if you don’t go through the military and get one on your own, like  people should.  The military should not even be keeping track of absentee ballots. And many people who are forced to request them never bother to fill them out. Thats how you get crazy numbers like that. There is no problem  with the  military and absentee ballots. It’s exactly the same as other mailed in ballots, the military doesn’t collect them up and count them separately. If you are in the military and mail your ballot, it is just as likely to get counted as any other ballot. @SondraBauernfeind

      • @MaryEstes @SondraBauernfeind THANK YOU for your posts describing how things actually work! I pray people pay some attention.

  30. It’s not mentioned in this article but the 12 boxes dropped overboard were filled with ballots from Alan West’s district in Florida.

  31. I served in the US Navy during the Korean war and was station aboard a ship in our home port of Charleston  SC.  My ballot for the Eisenhower election did not arrive until two weeks after the election was over proving oncwe again the military is always getting screwed. We need a recount of the 2012 election. It’s bad enough lossing but lossing by having military ballots cast months ago and not counted as ligimate is a serious crime and somebodys head should be rolling.  Why bother to have an election if is not legit? Look at the money we could send to China against our National debt instead of being spent on outright campain lies onTV and in the news papers.
    My blood is boiling.

    • @GeneHoldgreve
       http://www.snopes.com/politics/ballot/overseas.asp
        It is up to each individual state to send out absentee ballots to anyone who is in the military from that state.  If anyone enlisted in the military does not receive an absentee ballot, it is because their state did not follow procedures or did not send it out soon enough. If it does not come back quick enough, it is because the military did not stay on top of it.  They have 45 days to receive it, vote and send it back.  The President has nothing, whatsoever, anything to do with it.  God Bless and lets all work together. Calling each other names does not help.  That should have stayed back in grammar school.

      • @CindyHopkins  @GeneHoldgreve
         Hi Cindy,
        I understand the states responsibilty but assume since the ballots were in the process of being returned for counting the trouble was the hodl-upn in getting the ballots to the proper polling place. Some apparently sat for 45 days awaiting delivery.  Was this by design or just bad service. We will never know.  Nevertheless, We need to see that this does not happen again
        @

    • @GeneHoldgreve
       ITA Gene,    I think it is despicable that those of you who still  sacrifice and have sacrificed to keep us safe and free should be the first ballots counted. Period!! I don’t know how everyon who serves cannot feel the same way you do…..
       
      I’m curious about how many here buy the Patreus cheated and  resigned  in shame b/c of it  crap they are trying to sppon feed to Ameriuca??

      • @jesamer  @GeneHoldgreve
        Patreaus just became Obama’s SAPI Plate. The media firestorm will be focused on the titillating dirt of an affair and never look at Bengazi with any interest. Why? Because America is morally bankrupt and feels good when others fall. Sort of like standing next to a really fat person in order to look thinner in comparison.
         
        The timing on this was better than a Fred Astaire dance number. Congress has had its teeth pulled. Patreaus is the “leader of the surge”, took a positional demotion in order to assume command over Afghanistan when McCrystal was canned, and then slid right on over to the CIA without skipping a beat.  Oh and his wife works for the Administration.
         
        You don’t make moves like that unless you KNOW you are bullet proof. AND his integrity is not in question because he “confessed”. He showed “dignity, and courage” in admitting his moral weakness. In short, no one can touch him because he planned his exit. Obama is at a nice comfortable distance from the entire thing and no one is looking at any of the politics surrounding the events because the public has the attention span of a nat.
         
        They are going to spend the next few weeks talking about Patreaus, who is safely gone, and by the time they try and get back on topic, no one will care.
         
        This is call diversion and misdirection.  He was a good general.  He knows how to advance and retreat while defending his key areas.

        • @leftoftheboom  @GeneHoldgreve
           I hope you are wrong and I think you are about this going awa, just be P ‘supposedly’ had an affair and decided to ‘confess’*eyes wide* I think that is just the best plausible thing they could come up with in a huirry- I do not think Americans, most any way, are stupide enough to buy that whole package of bologna and they are going to forget it anytime soon- there are enough of us who want answers to keep it front and center- In my opinion P did not show any kind of dignity- he showed that he is in bed with the cover-up and that is all…..
          .

        • @leftoftheboom  @GeneHoldgreve
           Another scenario I heard tonight is that by resigning his postion P is free  to tell the truth about Benghazi-he won’t have to give answers the Obama’s force on him-from everything said tonight he sounds to be a very honorable man-I hope this scenario is true…

        • @jesamer  @GeneHoldgreve
          I don’t see that happening. His “integrity” in confessing shields him. If he does speak about Benghazi, we will only have his word. He has therefore set the stage that everyone will believe everything he has to say, and both he and the administration can spin it any direction that they want. Yes that is paranoid and wrapping your head around it makes you distrust everything. I spent a lot of time looking at patterns of what bad people were doing so I could anticipate what was going on.  This smells worse than a pig rendering plant in summer.
           
          I was interested when he left his command over both operations in the Middle East and took over Afghanistan at the order of the president. Then he moves right on in to the director of the CIA. Remember, the President gets to pick the key positions that work for him. So here is a General who is hand selected to take over the CIA under Obama. Some interesting things happed while he was there and some of them we only have the public acknowledgement of not any accurate details. Now three days after the election, he requests to resign because he had an affair.
           
          Patraeus is a highly intelligent individual. As a man I realize that loss of blood can occur to the brain at certain moments and affect judgment and decision making skills. But the affair was discovered because the mistress sent threatening emails to another woman at the CIA. Bright people can do dumb things just like everyone else but this all fits a pattern of convenience that screams planned operation to me.
           
          He can “tell the truth” and everyone will buy his version because it looks like he has nothing to gain and is an individual with integrity.   Like I said, he is now bullet proof.

        • @leftoftheboom  @GeneHoldgreve
           Thanks leftof- your post takes me right back to what I was thiniking originally in this case-I agree with you that this is exactly what is taking place….I have a good friend who is a retired military who said he has suspicions about P as well.
          So I guess we just have to keep  depending on Bill O’Reilly to Keep looking out for us’ (*tongue in cheek)

  32. Hilarious article! This is going to be one of my favorite sites. The comments from everyone who believes its true is a riot! I’m in tears reading the hysterical screeches from the “believers”.

        • Well played, sir. You had me totally trolled until your over the top comment about The Washington Times being liberal. Should have quit while you were ahead. ;-P

  33. Sometimes the truth is said in jest…. The Congress enacted Move in 2008 after it came to light that , in fact, the military voting was surpressed.  That is why all Boards of Election in all 50 states of these United States are required by this law to get the ballots out to the military at least 45 days before the election.

      I am sure God is attractive. He created me in his image and I am awesome.
       
      But I don’t think he is going to sleep with you no matter what you offer him.

  34. @TheDuffelBlog This was a good one. Ya got me. I spent quite a while apologizing to those who RT’d it from me.

  35. You people are an amazing example of everything wrong with this country. You actually think this story is true, despite all evidence to the contrary. Astounding! Just like you all spent months (or years depending how close you are to GOP) being lied to by Mittens. Badly lied to, as they were constantly pointed out, and you still wonder why he lost.
    Block fox “news” from your TV and see what’s really going on.

  36. The real reason that Romney lost was because majority of his supporters do not check the facts but like to read “pre-packaged news from Fox”. You could easily check the facts by going to the “About Us” section of this page, where it is written in clear English:
    The content of this site is parody. No composition should be regarded as truthful, and no reference of an individual, company, or military unit seeks to inflict malice or emotional harm.
    All characters, groups, and military units appearing in these works are fictitious. Any resemblance to real persons, living or dead, or actual military units and companies is purely coincidental.

    • No no, this is completely true. Every true Republican should share this story with all their friends immediately. Don’t listen to the libtard fact checking sites like Google who say this isn’t true! Call your Congressmen too and demand they talk about it.

      • Even if they (the staff that maintains this site) tell you “this is only a parody, a joke, and you should not let your blood boil over this, we are only kidding, this stuff is fun”, you believe the story.
        It is a very sad day for America – not because Obama won, but because the Party of Abraham Lincoln, Ulysses S. Grant, Theodore Roosevelt, Dwight D. Eisenhower, Ronald Reagan, Bob Dole is now represented by your ignorant kind!

  37. To all who all who are saying that this story isn’t true, and voted for Obama, please know there is more truth in this then anything that comes out if your leaders mouth. Bill Maure isn’t real news but ppl listen to him like he’s a God. And what about all those Hollywood stars who’s opinion you listen to? Half if them never even graduated high school or served their country. But people believe if Bruce Springsteen says it then it must be true…. Yeah, well Bruce Springsteen put a couple of goats on his property and can now call it a farm for the tax write off. Obama and his advisors are some of the smartest people I’ve ever seen. They know exactly where to get the votes ……. From the uninformed, the uneducated and the blacks who he keeps suppressed so when he throws a free phone their way they think he’s their savior!!!

    • Based on all of the errors in your post, I’m guessing you didn’t graduate high school either. This is a satirical blog. Check out the other articles on this site and (hopefully) you’ll understand.

    • Um, so because The Boss tends goats then all satire news should be believed as fact? Ok, that makes a lot of sense.
      You know why the right lost? Because you’ve gone so far off the deep end with your Fox News echo chamber crazy talk that people are embarrassed to be associated with you. Stop being so batsh*t nuts and you might actual win an election rather than alienating rational people.

      • @JokesRnotNews: Actually check your facts the rights won most of the election just not the presidency…. Everyone can sit back and say the stories b.s., but actual military, whom have dealt with this is saying its truthful. I don’t doubt that obama has taken part in tons of, “backdoor,” politics. Either way, true or not, this story does not change my mind about obama. I am afraid for America. So is the majority. When the stock market plummets due to who was elected… Well there’s your answer.

        • No man, you’re not getting it. This site is not real. It is a joke site. There may very well be real honest to God examples of military votes being discounted, but this isn’t one of them. You are defending the authenticity of a story that the publishers go out of their way to tell you is not based on truth. Jeez – if you will believe a story that is published on a joke site and that the publishers are clearly telling you is not based on any facts at all, what won’t you believe? Think about that. And since when is the stock market the sane arbiter in the room? Get real.

        • Hard to take you seriously when you say check your facts in the same breath as this story is in fact true. Dems won senate, governors and pres, Repubs won house. What facts would you like me to check?

      • @JokesRnotNewsactually fox said it right but i have to admit people only hear what sounds good to them so obama wins even though his wife said ( all this over  a dam flag) and that was our AMERICAN FLAG she was talking about and she also said the only time she was ever proud of the USA was when obama was elected and  obama would not observe prayer day here in the US but he did sit down and celebrate muslim day with the muslims cant you all  see and hear what is actually said from the obamas lips that are not just said from news people its so sad how so many people have been scammed by the obamas and it would be okay if the whole USA DIDNT HAVE TO ALSO SUFFER PEOPLES IGNORANCE

             Rational is to understand…. Those who claim that they are rational have a big problem with the truth.  They stoop to the low level of hurling insults at other people who have different opinions and never present factual evidence to support their opinion. Ignorace is not knowing the truth.  Stupidity is knowing the truth but ignoring it… and the definition for insanity is doing the same thing the same way over and over again and expecting a different outcome. For the last 60 years or more the education of Americans attending the public schools has been intent on dumbing down the students until now even some high school graduates have to take remedial reading and remedial arithmetic entering college.  Instead of teaching reading, writing and arithmetic the schools are promoting  ” social justice “….   Social justice never built a bridge that didn’t fall down…. If you must under go surgery, you better pray that the medical staff  woking on you knows more than  social justice. American students now rank 32ND in the world against other nations.  We used to be # ONE… How sad that the American education system is producing people who believe that lying and cheating should be the acceptable way of life.
            Having taught high school for 26  years…. 24 years teaching high school science in grades 7 – 12…. I demanded that my students produce quality work.  I graded all written homework completely  including corrections for spelling, grammar and arithmetic  when necessary… Today anything is acceptable and so the student is not given the correct answer or the correct way of expressing his or her ideas.
           Just remember….. once a liar, always a liar….

        • Thank you for your almost 3 decades teaching science to our children. Thank god you weren’t teaching English. While you managing an ok definition of ignorance you really crapped out defining rational, stupidity, and insanity. Looks those up; your definitions are way off base.
          “Those who claim that they are rational have a big problem with the truth. They stoop to the low level of hurling insults at other people who have different opinions and never present factual evidence to support their opinion.”
          ^^This but really struck me as odd. See whenever I encounter someone claiming to be rational I think to myself, ‘here is someone who is reasonable and open to be swayed by logic.’ But hey, that’s just me.
          You seem like a smart person who is letting some deep-seated issues (maybe career related?) really cloud your thinking. I hope you find peace. Peace.

        • @JokesRnotNews
           That was priceless.  I am still laughing.  (maybe career related?)  hysterical.

    • @JeanKellyKellberg
      Dear JeanKellyKellberg,
      This is in response to your facebook comment to me (see above). Your initial comment is neither satirical nor funny. Neither I, nor anyone else, viewed it as such. Regarding your very high level of education, “nowhere” is one word, not two, and it’s “who,” not “that.” you can barely string together a proper sentence (and really, I could go on, but I am trying to keep this as succinct as possible). Regarding making things personal: don’t dish it out if you can’t take it (and how do you know that I’m not a Hollywood celebrity who did, in fact, take it personally?). But really, insinuating that you have not attained a high school education based on your very poor writing skills isn’t a stretch. I do think, however, that calling me a “moron” does qualify as a personal attack upon me, from you. Glass houses. Stones. And finally, it was not I who made reference to your breeding. I wish you a most excellent weekend, replete with many fun hours spent trying to decipher the exact meaning of this response. Adieu.

    • @JeanKellyKellberg
       That has to be the dumbest comment I have ever read….wow.  Even if, and that’s a huge if, that article was true, which it isn’t, the military lost it and labeled it ammunition.  Why are you blaming Obama for that?  But the article isn’t true!  What in blue blazes is so hard for y’all to understand about that?  Bless your hearts!

  38. I thought we all understood that military absentee ballots were, in the majority, votes for the exceptional American and not bobble-head Mitt.

  39. @rhetoricfacex @RyanTerrana said their ballots never left the FOB in 2008. If there was already a concerted effort in 08, imagine 2012.

  40. To the trolling Libs…Yes,  WE KNOW how to use the internet.

        • @CarolineThompson  @bluer
           Go read TRMS transcript.  Get this:  There is a REALITY.  This was a landslide, in essence.  You may not like it, but Obama won.  A majority of us Americans can tell the difference between competence and arrogance.  Think of what the electoral vote would have been if the guy wasn’t, uh, black.

      • It’s actually spelled numbskull, with a “b.” The irony of your misspelling is priceless. I commend bluer for trying to shed some light on the actual nature of this blog, but to no avail. I’ll try again with a link to another article from The Duffel Blog: http://duffelblog.wpengine.com/2012/06/bin-laden-informant-jailed-for-treason-obama-unfriends-pakistani-president-asif-ali-zardari-on-facebook/. It really is shocking to see how many people cannot see this for what it is…and what sad, humorless lives you must lead.

      • It’s not “the same story.” It’s a different story based on loosely the same topic. The difference is that the Examiner story is actually a news story, while the Duffel Bag story is a joke. When you respond to a joke story as if it were a news story, you sort of make yourself look like a fool.

  41. There is no doubt in my military mind tht this was not done on purpose.  The democrats/liberal know that well over 66% of the military is/are anti liberal/socialist.  Question is will this lead to a civil war?  or insurrection? or the splitting up of the United States.  History does repeat itself

  42. Why wouldn’t you believe this ?  Do you believe Obama, Biden, Hillary, Susan Rice and the rest of the Obama administration about the murder of four Americans in Bendghazi, Libya ?  Do believe what Obama says that he killed Osama bin Laden ? Do you believe that General Motors was saved ? ( You better keep up with the financial news because GM is slated to go bankrupt again…..) If only one vote of a military person was not counted, that is one vote too many.  It has been in the news for several months that Obama intended to violate the voting rights of the military  so why do you not believe that he did ? He didn’t say it, so he didn’t lie about it.  But when the order to  ” Stand Down” was given, Gen Ham was relieved of command so that no help was given to the four Americans who had repeatedly requested increased security at the American consulate in Libya since April only the Commander-in-Chief could give that order…. and he went to bed during the real time video coverage of the terrorist attack on the consulate which went on for 7 hours.  He went to bed so he could fly out on Air Force One to attend a campaign in Las Vegas.  And you think that denying the military the right to vote is not true ? An immediate investigation should be started and in the mean time every governor should issue an executive order to allow extra time for those ballots to be located and to be brought to the designated election boards and counted for the election of November 6, 2012. CONTACT YOUR STATE AND FEDERAL REPRESENTATIVES AND DEMAND THAT THE MILITARY VOTE BE COUNTED FOR THIS ELECTION…. NOVEMBER 6, 2012.

    • Did you even bother to read the article? It’s clearly a joke. It doesn’t say anything about Obama attempting to suppress the military vote, it talks about the incompetency of the military mail system. It talks about the soldiers being completely used to this kind of bureaucratic bumbling. This is insider humor for people in the military. I’m thinking you just saw the headline and ran with it, instead of bothering to investigate the source, or even to read the very brief, obviously intended to be taken as humor, article. My goodness. There are real articles about votes being lost, etc. But this is not one of them.

  43. Looking at the homepage it appears that the author of this  site is a malcontent who laughs at his country- so from what I am gathering, everything posted here is nothing more than a big joke- how anyone can laugh at the state our country is in at the present time is another sign of the changing times..):

    • HAHA So true, this is a SATIRE site. I am sad for some of the soldiers comments in this thread, but I am really seriously enjoying some of the other comments… Please let it continue!

    • Not a malcontent – this is a website dedicated to satire regarding the military. It is for people in the military to laugh at. Grow a sense of humor. Trying times require it.

      • @louistwermann
         f it is joke then it needs to be disclosed as one at the beginning of the article– if the military  on the is site were the only ones who see it,that would be one thing-but  it makes its way to email and is all over the internet and before you know people like myself  who love our country and appreciate our military are ready to go to bat over the injustice to  them that turns out to have been a big joke ha ha to begin with..-I SEE NO HUIMOR IN THIS KIND OF JOKE, especially in light of what the results of this election will mean for so many of us…………………..

        • It’s published on a website that is entirely dedicated to satire. The biography of the author clearly states that he is a stand up comic. Look at all the other article titles. Look at the “about us” section where it clearly says that nothing on the site is factual. How much do you need to have your hand held to figure this stuff out? For every satirical piece does the author need to start the article with a disclaimer stating that the piece is not real? That sort of ruins what satire is about. It’s not the fault of the publisher that some ignoramus didn’t have enough sense to decipher a very obvious joke and decided to disseminate it as truth. My goodness. If you can’t figure out that this is satire, God help you. I can’t imagine what it is like for you to try and navigate the very complex media landscape out there. Why don’t you just realize you’ve been had and have a laugh? It might do you some good.

  44. At this time of GREAT CRISES in our country we don’t need this kind of news flaoting around as a joke! I don’t find it the least bit amusing  and I don’t care that this siteis basically for military humor- the loss of America is not funny to me and If this sroty is true then we need to dpo something about it and not let it just slide by the way side– if anyone’s vote should b e counted it is it that of our service men and women–Now can someone tell me if this was meant just to be funny- if so ;it is not, but I need to know thanks,.

    • @jesamer
       i believe it..im also reading military votes werent even counted….they were trying to make it so military couldnt vote anywyas..so why wouldnt you believe this?? we need to do something and not let this slide…im sick and tired if nobama getting away w cheating and everything he does…it needs to end

      • @CortniSchaedler
         Cortni- I believe it- but I want to make sure before I go further with my tirade of sorts online to everyone- ‘it would not be the first time that the militray have not had their voices heard- it happened with clinton  as well- what I don’t uinderstand is why the military continues to put up with  it ESPECIALLY this election- OUR COUNTRY IS DROWING AND- and that means we who love it do whatever to save it-if this is how the militay is being treated then maybe they need to walk away- ALL OF THEM.. your government is screwing you- it may be time for the position to change…. I have read on other sites that this site is strictly for miliraty humore, satier if you will  and if that is the case with this story I feel that it too sacred a topic to be making humor about the results of the election and what it is going to mean for our AMERICA……..I JUST NEED TO KNOW…tthanks

        It is up to each state to send out absentee ballots.  Obama has nothing to do with the voting process.  Your state does.  If the military do not get the ballots, it is your states fault depending on which state the soldier is from.  READ the link I sent you.  It will help you understand better as to how it all works.

         spoken like a true liberal, can’t think of anything intelligent to say. so resort to name calling everytime…. **yawnnnnnnnnnnnnn*

        • Please do not make such broad and frankly ignorant characterizations about half the country. It is offensive and counter productive. That is not how a true liberal speaks. Now you know.

    • We’re honestly not in a time of GREAT CRISIS. I know it may feel that way to you. Your whole worldview just got a kick in the nuts. When your candidate who you thought couldn’t lose does just that it can be devastating. The reason so many on the right feel devastated is because they have convinced themselves that all news is biased and that only Fox and a few other right-wing sources tell the truth. They get all their news from this distorted echo chamber that lies to them. Lies to them by telling them Romney is ahead, when he never was. Lies to them by telling them a centrist democratic president is a communist trying to strip them of their rights. Lies to them about what the democrats really want for this country (spoiler: they want a positive future). We are not in great crisis. We are in a tough spot, but it is one we can get out of with smart ideas and political compromise. The right wing needs to stop punishing as a traitor any Republican that “dares reach across the aisle.” Compromise is how you run a country that doesn’t have complete political homogeneity.

      • @JokesRnotNews
         Is that how your therapist taught you to deal with the news when your parents told you that you were adopted?  It sounds like good advice.
         
        Oh, Jokes are Humor.  This is not a news site.  It is a Joke site.  The only news here are the number of morons who don’t know how to read that this is a JOKE site.

        • I find your comment confusing. You are angry at me for being rational and you are angry at those who are duped by this site? Are you against both rational thought and irrational thought?

        • @JokesRnotNews
          Actually, I am not angry. You believe your thought was rational because it was yours. I don’t. Your confusion is that you are trying earnestly to come across as reasonable and I am not buying it. Why? I want people to pay for their mistakes. I want them to face the consequences of their actions. I don’t want them to escape the reality that they created for themselves. Which means I am against irrational thought, yours and theirs.  All the news is biased.  That you think it’s not shows you are irrational.

      • @JokesRnotNewsWe ARE in crises and if you are in the military you better not be expecting obama not to leave you behind if your need ever arises.. he does not work that way as four Americans discovered and the country is finding out as well..

        • If you your news only from right-wing biased sources, and only have discourse with those who share your politics and worldview it will be pretty easy to convince yourself that the tough spot we’re in right now is in fact an end of days type crisis.

        • @JokesRnotNews
           Which candidate called his opposition “the enemy”. 
           
          And the Mayan’s predicted this.

        • @JokesRnotNews
           Actually my source of information (skitchy as it is due the cover up)comes from
          Charles Woods-I am just trying to get to the truth- obviously this is not the place..

        • I would certainly count Mr. Woods as one who shares your politics and worldview, and surely he is not your only source of news and information. We are not in a great crisis. We will get out of this. We need to pull together and compromise like great Americans have done in the past.

        • @JokesRnotNews
           No, of course not- I read Human Events and IBD mostly,listen to Rush and Greta on Fox– I think the country is more devided today  than it has been in my life.. I don’t see how four more years of the same and worse is going to make it possible for us to pull together……….I just came here looking for the truth. I do get that this is a joke site. I guess people are people wherever you go- I have always looked up to and respected our military and if the folks posting the nasty comments on this site are military I am disappointed. I  just fail to see the humor in the state of our country today… anwyay, back to the drawing board… I see Patreus has ‘resigned his post due to his inability to stay faithful to his wife who, it turns out works for the Obama administration- I have to ponder what the real story is behind his resignation..and so the world turns

        • I understand your frustration, but do you honestly think that the country would be better off if we didn’t pull together and come to compromises? No political ideology holds a majority in this country. You may think Obama is a complete failure and his policies are poison for this country, but you know what? I feel the exact opposite and feel the policies of the right are damaging. And about 50% of the people feel how you do and about 50% feel how I do. What should we do about it? Demand political purity in our elected officials, or try to meet in the middle?

        • @JokesRnotNews
           Oh absolutely not- I am a team player. I anything always works better when we work as a team- I just don’t think that is ever going to happen-I think Obama is a complete failure because of BENGHAZI  I know that you feel just as strongly about your postion and have a difficult time understanding how I can see it so dfifferently- I know  I do get that..  maybe the thing to do is split the country in half lengthwise, libs take one side and conservatives the other–I don’t know whart the answer is I just know that I am fearing greatly for our country right now-anyway I must get on my way- it has been nice posting with you(:

        • @jesamer  @JokesRnotNews
           The it is time to expand your education.  Pick a branch from the main page and just read.  Most of the stories are difficult (because there is a story within the story) to follow unless you are military but then go to the comment section.  Anyone who is throwing gasoline on the fire is usually military and they will say just enough to explain what might not be understood.  While getting a rise out of the uninformed.  
           
          By the way,  I am being serious not yanking your chain.  Just be prepared because we do say shocking things but we understand the double meaning behind what we say. 
           
          Spread the story.  Duffelblog has already scored some hits with people reporting in the mainstream media.  We were laughing our butts off.  And we pay homage to the guys that run the site for their creativity.

       Ask a Navy Seal if this is true…. I just viewed the site  AmericiPac Alerts where the Seals want to know what is Obama hiding?  Why are  the Benghazi tapes not being released ?

Ignorance is bliss….is the mantra.  But the proper statement is :
          Ignorance is not knowing the truth
          Stupidity is knowing the truth but ignoring it
          Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result

  47. You stand behind your elected president….. that is not the case here…. he was not elected, he took it…. look at the map and compare red to blue… the majority wanted Romney ….. and I pray this is all exposed so our rightful president sits in that oval office…. I’m democrat and Romney was robbed as was our nation of our real leader. If anyone feels can be okay with this, it is the real lack of patriotism ….. look at the outcome of the election… obama won only the States with no voter id required, as the counts come in percentage we see that the suburban ares that took the swing States voted over 100% of population of legal voting age, the military was convieniently left out of this election, in October the election results were aired dated November 6 on the bottom of the screen on 2 different networks one for 17 seconds and the other for 19 seconds both matching eachother and are very comparable to the results of Tuesday. . . We the people have to lay down our anger for party and come together in a unity under God for our Freedom that has been paid for in blood by the servicemen and woman who protect us… this is tyranny and dishonest and a slap in the face to all of us, in every party…. I can live with a lose, but I cant know that it was won by cheating and believe in my heart that is okay and not stand up and say this is wrong and our rightful president needs to take his place come January. . . The people want peace and we want unity and we want liberty and justice for all…. we I feel that if Obama was a leader in his heart, he would say the same.

       All those big, empty red states have more square miles than people.  Get over it — Do you remember how many electoral votes GWB won in 2004?  I thought not.  This was a landslide. It’s time to get back to work.  And some of you here need to find a therapist.

      • You know where she got that shit about the red states and blue states? Stephen Colbert. He ran a joke about that last night. I swear these people don’t understand what satire is. They believe everything they read. They think Colbert is a real right-winger and not someone making fun of right-wingers. It’s insane.

    • There were only a handful of states that required photo voter ID. All those states were right-leaning and would never go for Obama. Your point there is not strong.

  48. this needs to be investagated and all need to be recounted!!!!!! obama had something to do with you can bet your only and bottom dollar!!!!!!!

At the bottom of the page it says, “Copyright ©2012 The Duffel Blog. Don’t steal. Not only will terrorists win but it will also make you an asshole.” Really now you’re going to listen to someone based off a website that uses the word, “a**hole?” Unbelievable….

  52. We may not like the outcome of the election last evening 🙁 but here are my two cents on the subject this morning. I truly and firmly believe that honor and respect should be shown to the office of the President and his family. How can the world take us seriously when we make a moc…kery of our government? Good or bad a President should not be disrespected. Americans should stand up speak out against such hate talk. I know there are some serious issues at stake for us and we don’t like it but you can disagree without disrespect. I am appealing to you to help bring back a little class to our Nation

    • The problem I have with this prez is that he shows no respect for the flag he is charged with protecting.

      • @Freida
         He shows no respect for our military- have you ever noticed when he is in a postiton to salute a member of our military? he makes quick work of the salute – there is no honor, no respect in his body language as he goes through the motion -it is just another action he is obligated to perform-  I notice it everytime– it is like he is swiping a knat from his shoulder almost……..

    • How can we be serious about a president who himself does not honor the American Flag? I shall respect him when he decides to honor the people he vowed to protect…. that would be us and our military …..

    • @Diane Burnett he also shows no reject for me or my beliefs so why would I give him any. He isn’t a king you don’t have to bow or cower

    • I admire the  generosity that enables you to do this- I cannot…to me it is not a matter of good president(RR) bad president(JC) but a matter of a man standing in the position now who is a dictator and has plans to destroy our conuntry….

    • They don’t need to retract, because it is a comedy article on a comedy site. Read the ‘About Us’ section.

  53. To those doubting the believability of this story, read some if the comments straight from military members sayin they didn’t even receive ballots to vote! My husband was deployed last election and they did not receive ballots either. Military mail is jacked! They don’t received some packages for months an other get there in 4 weeks. This is happening not only to deployed members but people stationed all over the US. They have to vote absentee and there ballots aren’t arriving

  54. Over a month ago, I read how Virginia military absentee ballots were down by over 60% since the last presidential election. Despite the fact that congress had passed a law directing the Pentagon to make sure that enlisted men and women that were abroad would be supplied with ballots from their home districts, and that those ballots were returned well in advance of the election, this did not occur.  No one has been held accountable.  Myriad excuses have been made by the Pentagon.  Absentee ballots for the military were not delivered to the enlisted personnell in large numbers, and those that were, were not returned state side in accordance with the law.  As a result, the election has been stolen through disenfranchisement and voter fraud – the nation will suffer unimaginable harm.

    • Satire aside, a large number of absentee ballots from the military have not been returned stateside and many that are, are not being counted.  This is a serious issue and a crime.  Many of the disenfranchised have no idea of what took place and assume that their ballots have been counted, when they have actually been discarded.  This is no laughing matter…

  55. America the united – in hate of each other. Look what run-for-profit “news” that counts on same emotions as wrestling “sport” has done to your country. There is no much difference between your two parties, but still you all hate each other. Meanwhile, both parties are socialists: banks’ losses are socialized for you all, while the elite gets richer. Divide and conquer has never been more successful.

  62. Here is a last question for the evening. If we are entitled to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, why do we allow individuals like that nut they sentenced to life in Arizona to live? His deliberate actions took the life of a child. And now he will enjoy three meals a day, health care at no charge, a nice one room apartment, free education if he wants it, electricity at no charge, TV, radio and all the other pleasures and he does not have to work again for the rest of his life. YOU are paying his bills. The little girl got a box. Her life gone and he gets to enjoy his old age.
     
    Why is that acceptable to anyone?  In order to show how morally pure and rightious we are, we allow him to keep breathing no matter what he is responsible for doing? 
     
    Penn State protected an individual that destroyed the lives of children for his own jollies and they said NOTHING because it might hurt the Football Program?  THAT IS INSANE!
     
    When you will not defend the weak, when you will not protect the innocent, you have purjored your soul for self serving pride. 
     
    The question is,  if it’s okay for children to be murdered and raped,  why isn’t it okay for them to be YOUR children?

    • I have to agree with you on this one. What happened to back in the old days when you were hung at sunset for murder, or you had your fingers chopped off if you stole. I am tired of paying for criminals to sit in jail, get an education, 3 meals a day, workout on some of the best workout equipment made….all on OUR $$$. Wish there was an easy solution to this problem…..To us, the solution is easy….To those sitting in the white house, they don’t care, they have bigger fish to fry….What’s wrong with this picture? A LOT !!!

      • @DaleRichardsDuBois
         
        Vigilantes can be sent to prison too.  I think we can consider it a retirement option and then ensure that the prisons are full of honest convicts who are serving out of principle.

  63. You people talking crazy are hilarious. we are sitting here reading this out loud and laughing it up over the idiot and psychos posting on here (u know who u r, hahaha or maybe not?). Why can’t we all get along? Because a percentage of the population is out of control and they don’t know it because they been off their meds for so long they cant remember the difference between humour and reality. I can’t wait to see who is gonna yell and scream about this post! hahhaha

    • @mickangls
      Hate to break it to ya tater bug, your not worth the time to yell and scream at. Your just another irratant. nothing special, just a regular irritant. Now go to your room and shut up.

      • tater bug, hahha thats cute, can I use it? u dont have to yell and scream. it isnt real, it is satire dude. regular irritant is just right in my book. I dont have A room, I have a whole house. I tell my grandchildren all the time not to tell people to “shut up”, its rude, just ssshshshshhushh them heheheehheheheh. no wonder this world is so rude, myself included.

  64. Want to know the difference between a Conservative and Liberal?
     
    When a Liberal looks in the closet they find secrets people don’t want to share in public.
     
    When a Conservative looks in the closet, they find guns.

  65. LMAO….fake??? This happened under Clinton’s lil pow wow too…..what a bunch of near-sighted nitwits….now cry me a river RACIST LIBBIES…..

  66. Most of you all need to go get yourselves a nice large diet coke, large order of fries, and a double patty with cheese of shut the hell up.  If you, and by you I sincerely do mean all of you, are a representative sample of this nation, we are so screwed.  First, why is the economy in the tank?  Because you buy things you cannot afford and run up a credit debt that you cannot pay.  Then, because you keep spending, when the bills come due, you default because you owe more than you make.  Yes the banks loaned money to those who should not have been able to get loans.  NO one held a gun to your heads and said take the money.  You have to have the lastest gadget, gizmo, your clothes have to be in style, your hair has to be done, and you cannot be seen eating cheap, and you have to live in a house that is just short of primo because you are there.  Business goes overseas because in order to make money they have to pay for dirt cheap labor because the union boys and girls want 30.00 and hour just to push a button and watch the robot do the job.  Forget Obama, Romney, Congress, and the Senate.  They are made up of people JUST LIKE YOU.  So if you cannot bother to spend less than you earn, why should they?  Women want government provided contraceptives so they can party like a rock star without a problem 9 months later.  Why, because their Christian values say that you cannot have an abortion.  What about the Christian value that says keep your legs crossed before you are married?  The only virgins in this country are 10 year olds who can outrun their uncles.
     
    You want to solve the budget crisis?  Everyone pays their taxes and don’t take a refund for ONE YEAR.  Problem solved.  DO The MATH.  It’s not hard, go ahead, pull your shoes off, I’ll wait.  How about the folks that do pay their taxes but they get all these cute incentives so that when they file, they get back three times what they paid in.  How does that make sense?  Get back what you paid no problem.   
     
    This country is going to hell in a hand basket because of the hypocrisy of the citizens who want the money to come out of someone elses pocket.  Guess what?  There are no spare pockets.  This nation is populated with people who are overweight, under educated, self indulgent, lazy, and have an over inflated self opinion of just how great they are. 
     
    You want to know what is wrong with this nation?  Look in the damn mirror.

    • @leftoftheboom
       i am assuming you are referring to yourself as well? unless you are perfect, and have never received a tax refund.

      • @DaleRichardsDuBois
         “Get back what you paid no problem”.  Learn to read and be part of the solution.  Or go ahead and be part of the problem.

    • @leftoftheboom
       I havent filed a refund since 2006. I buy strictly in cash outside of a Loews card to get tools I need when I need them – with a mere 500$ limit. I didnt create this problem, but I have to pay the penalty for it.

      • @agent00kevin
         You sound like you can do math, balance a budget, and make common sense decisions.  Run because the government will now be sending the secret police after you.

    • @leftoftheboom , let’s just insult every possible person you can. Just because that is what you see in the Mirror. You should shut your mouth about my religion too. If it wasn’t for Christianity you wouldn’t be able to be atheist or agnostic, or whatever you are, go try and live in an Islamic country…see how long you make it there

      • @Greg255  @leftoftheboom
        Well Gregster I got some news for you. I was not insulting your Religion. Christians Insult their own Religion with their daily actions. You don’t need my help. For your necessary education, an individual can believe in God and not be a Christian. It’s a rule. Now as for Islam I would love to see that “religion” becomes a historical footnote.  And they all died….
         
        Now as to insulting everyone. Yes. Why? People in this country think they are special because mommy and daddy, if you know who they are, told them they were. Did not matter if mom was a crack whore and dad was a john, the kiddies were special. That lie has created the belief that your opinion matters, no matter how asinine it is, that you are a contribution to society just by being there instead of working and performing a valued service, and that you are the model of intelligence. They put warning labels on Bleach and some stupid cow is suing TIDE because the detergent packets look like candy and her little precious afterbirth ate one and died. Why is it the manufactures fault Greg? Because the cow and it was more than one, was too stupid to care for her own children. Why, because she was American, it was not her job to be a parent. That’s what daycare, cartoons, and the playboy channel are for.
         
        Americans are narcissistic, ignorant, lazy and self indulgent. NO ONE wants to take responsibility and everyone can seem to find some ignorant excuse or another for ANY behavior. What we do not need are thousands of laws that make the price of everything go up because people don’t want to be responsible for their own actions.  We need to let Darwin help weed out the gene pool a little and let you idiots take yourselves out. 
         
        I personnaly am removing the warning label from hair dryers about using them in the shower.  I am running up a score.
         
        So NEWs Flash. You are not special. Your Religious convictions do not make you special. And you have the observational skills of a nat.

  67. @TeaRattlesnake Duffleblog is a satire site about the military. It says this in the sire’s “About Us” section.

  68. @Sybele8 @cnnbrk heard it was a ‘joke’ but it’s not seeming that way to me. Snoops has it as ‘false’ – not sure if it is now because O hides

  69. Are you people who are taking this article seriously while at the same time talking about how “uneducated” and dumb Obama supporters are, aware that this website is a spoof site, much like The Onion, and that this is a fake story? Check the “About Us” page, linked at the bottom of this very page: http://duffelblog.wpengine.com/about/ “The Duffel Blog serves the men and women of the US Military with a daily dose of military humor, funny military pictures, and faux news. We take an interesting and funny look at military life. We focus on veterans, military stories, defense, politics (sometimes) and life on base — with a comedic twist. We are in no way, shape, or form, a real news outlet. Just about everything on this website is satirical in nature.” Ohhh OOPSIE! Now who is the stupid one? Morons.
    The pathetic thing is now this story is being spread across the internet as an actual truth and the cry babies who claim to be “real Americans” are screaming foul because you can’t accept the fact that the Democratic process has done it’s job and your guy lost through a legitimate vote (both electoral college and popular vote…imagine that), The right thing to do would be to stand up, shut up and start being those real Americans you claim to be and reach across the aisle to cooperate with your fellow citizens instead of being divisive. If anyone is committing treason, it’s those who bad-mouth the duly-elected President while doing nothing to help solve the problems we face. Stand up or shut the hell up.

  70. Educated people voted for O?  what a joke.  there was a good portion of O women voters that were hoarding tampons and birth control because they thought Romney was going to outlaw it.  I asked many liberals what were the 3 branches of government.  Only one could tell me.  The rest were the “gimme free stuff” mob.  No, Obama voters are what are called low information voters.

    • @Guest are you referring to you and your group of people. My family voted for Obama and by the way we are all very educated and accomplished individuals. My spouse an I worked for the past 35 years and never received “free stuff” from any one including the government.  People Romney lost, live with it and God’s was will done. Let us all work together to build a better America. Stop the hate.

    • @Guest, are you speaking from experience? Or are you referring to you and your group of people. My family voted for Obama and by the way we are all very educated and accomplished individuals. My spouse and I worked for the past 40 years and never received “free stuff” from anyone, including the government. People Romney lost, live with it. God delivered Obama a victory. Let us move on and all work together to build a better America. That is if you so called “educated” Romney supporters can be civil long enough to act like educated Americans.

  71. @QuadCityPat It’s funny though. You should tweet it like “OMG! This is awesome!” and then laugh. ;0)

  72. @tguygator @BuzzFeedAndrew See the “about us” page. Also, the story itself is ridiculous. But TeaBaggers are gullible.

  73. @kcs316 Ohhhh yeah. Victoria Jackson tweeted it out as fact. Lots of comments from people crying out for justice, too.

  74. @QuadCityPat Read the “About Us” on that blog. It’s a parody site. The military version of The Onion.

  75. @QuadCityPat How do they explain that military donations went to Obama 2:1? Oh, wait. They don’t have to explain. They’re republicans.

  76. @flahawkfan The mind, it boggles. I’ve never spewed such venom about a politician, and I lived thru GWB & my last 2 governors are in prison!

  77. @flahawkfan The fact that the “about us” page says “The content of this site is parody” does not seem to be dissuading them!

  78. I also heard there was a shortage of toilet paper so there was no choice but to wipe their asses with the ballots.

  79. This SO TICKS me off!!! Something should be done about this! The men and women who are fighting for this Country and our Freedom have been done WRONG!!! This is SO WRONG!!! ROMNEY should be in the Whitehouse!!!

    • @TonyaPowell
       Shut up bitch.  First off, this story is FAKE.  Yes, I said it FAKE!!!  And another point more members of the military donated money to Ron Paul than any other candidate.  So you are wrong.  well over half of the votes would have been for Obama.  Not to mention an injustice like this would not go unnoticed like this.  Do you believe everything you read.  No wonder you voted for Romney. hahahahaha

      • @Really People  @TonyaPowell  Really People — prove it to be fake.  Prove that military money went to Ron Paul.  I believe your assertions are fake.  Dont you believe anything that goes against your own beliefs?

      • @Really People  @TonyaPowell
         : How dare you call this woman a bitch !!!! You are disrespectful and a disgrace to the human race !!! I can’t believe what this world has come to. How we treat our fellow Americans. What happened to the Golden Rule? It’s not old school stuff…..It’s real stuff…..Learn to treat people with respect and learn to discuss issues in an adult fashion.

        • @DaleRichardsDuBois @Really People @TonyaPowell
          How dare you call this man a disgrace to the human race? How come your “golden rule” goes away when you are upset at someone else behavior?

      • @Really People  @TonyaPowell
         Wow, now that IS a LIE. Your SSSOOO misinformed…..thia happened in 1996 too…..do some research, dare ya. Now YOUR the BITCH, BITCH.

      • @Really People
        No offense taken. You have some serious issues with anger. You need to really take advantage of the OBAMACARE and get some help because you will be paying out of your ASS next year 🙂 Have a nice evening!

      • @Really People  @TonyaPowell
         Really People: You are dead wrong!  It is a well-known & acknowledged fact the military always overwhelmingly votes for Republicans!  That’s why the Obama people caused all of those “accidents”!  It is also why when they were screaming in Florida in 2000 for all of the votes to be counted, their lawyers were in the courts trying to get all of the military ballots declared ineligible to be counted!  It is one of the reasons they want to decrease the military.

      • To really people: It is a shame you must refer to name calling to fluff up your comment. You should thank your lucky stars that you have not been shot yet for your crude manner and behavior. I used to stick a bar of Lava soap in my kids’ mouth for such behavior.
        SO! You are telling me that my son was the ONLY member of the military who did not receive his ballot?? Huh, I reckon he will be pizzed off when he learns that every other military person not only got their ballots, but they were allowed to vote. By the way, really, obama is waiting for you to come have dinner with his family……. yeah! REALLY

  80. @LoriPatriot @MittRomney @RomneyCentral this is CRAP!! Our #military men&women above all DESERVE to have their votes COUNTED!! #tcot #lnyhbt

    • @MUSLEM HATER
       No one has made me believe yet that Lee Harvey Oswald shot anyone. Were you there? Did you see it?

  81. This shows just how ignorant a lot of Americans are. This is a fake article and a bunch sour grapes are still trying to deny the fact Obama won. He won the electoral as well as the popular vote. Get over it!
    If you’re really the patriot you claim to be wipe your tears and get off your butt and do something. What are you doing for your country? What are you doing for your neighbor? Crying and complaining = your the problem. You poor sad American.

  82. IT IS SATIRE. HOLY SHIT REPUBLICAN RIGHT WING NUT JOBS. IT IS NOT REAL. TAKE YOUR RACIST REMARKS AND TINFOIL HAT THEORIES TO FOXNEWS/NATIONAL REVIEW COMMENT SECTION.
    YOU ARE RETARDED.

    • Way to go, Nancy Drew. Now you can get to work on debunking all of those suspicious stories on The Onion.

  83. Web site is a joke site….come on guys, we know Obammy is a treasonist a-hole, but this story is FAKE!  Move on and try to get the goods on this Kenyan Bastard for real.

  84. I hope that the so called president understands the missing ballots of our brave military people need to be counted they are the ones over there in danger give them thier say count them no lies are you scared that’s not a stand up man  so stand up for the men an women over there an count their votes

  85. @TheDuffelBlog I guess the benefit to Americans knowing so little about the military is that your job is much easier.
    @bubbleheadchaps

  86. I hope you neocons continue on this narrow minded path.  It will be along time before a republican is elected to be President.  In 2014 liberals will retake the house.  The mittster would have had a chance if the party of no was not an obstructionist early on.  Its a shame that poor whites in the south will vote against their own interest to support a idealogical party that has no vision for the future.  Did you notice educated people voted for President Obama?  Playing the what if cared will not solve anything.  The President doest not have to work with congress.  Congress has to work with the President if they do not, neocons will lose big in 2014.  It’s no longer a black or white vote, we have latinos.  Neocon party is dying a slow death.  Just watch fox news.  There wont be any birther or rape on women talk because the American voters has rejected that.  Neocons has one thing on your side nra.  The nra is getting rich off dumb white people claiming President Obama will take away your gun rights.  President Obama is smart enough to let the neocons perpectuate the lie.  Because neocons are so easily distracted.

    • @nswclb
       The “neocons” as you call them will be saving you sorry a** when all the money runs out.

    • @nswclb
       What is your description of “educated”  . . . people who paid an instution for four years or more to give them a piece of paper telling them they were educated.  The biggest farce in this nation is our so called education system.  The people who voted for Obama fall into one of these catergories:  brainwashed by their unions, on welfare, on social security disability, convicted criminals, illegal aliens (and yes they do vote through fraud assisted by ACORN) the “over educated” who have no real world experiences and minorities, who only showed up to vote because he is black.  Wake the F up and smell what Barack Hussein Obama is cooking . . . it is called Socialism ! ! !

      • Spoken as someone who is educated, on social security disability as well as VA disability, and who has seen socialist nations and studied communism and socialism, what Obama is creating is not any more socialist then:
        Romneycare
        Public School System
        Roads
        Public Libraries
        And many other things.
        So why did you vote for Romney? Since we’re guessing, I’m guessing you’re ignorant as the pig-shit you roll around in with your flag-drawers and your Chinese knock-off AR-15, completely misunderstanding socialism and screaming about YUR TAX DOLLAHS! being stolen by greedy blacks while hopelessly fellating the exhaust pipe of your 5 MPG penis replacement.
        And nice American flag. Know what it means when it hangs like that?

        • @Cold War Supervillain
           I absoulutely do understand and so do the Police Officers, Fire Fighter and Military Members who have joined this campaign.  Look, unless you know my back ground, studying failed nations, maybe you should use your “education” to re-look your claims.  Since assumptions are your business of the hour I can assume you are soley supported by tax payers in one format or another.  You are going to see this upside down or “duress” fly being flown everywhere.  You are either part of the solution or part of the problem . . . it takes someone no time to figure out your side.

  87. @Go2GuyFL Don’t take my word for it. I’m just a liberal screwing with your head. Go to the Duffle Blog and read the ‘about us’ page. LOL.

  88. hahahahahaha! Fucking troglodytes, read the website info. IT IS A FAKE STORY FROM A FAKE SITE!!! Your ultra patriotism is misplaced, as usual. You have been duped into spewing stupidity about communists and Marxism over a fucking story THAT NEVER HAPPENED. Idiots. No wonder you joined the military. No IQ test required. Go off and fight another meaningless war!

    • @blowme
       your user name says it all for you..If it were not for the US military over 200 past years you would not have the right to even blow yourself…

    • No IQ test required huh? I have both of my stepsons who are in the military, one in the Marines and one in the Army, my husband is retired, my brother in law is still on active duty status and I have another brother in  law who served and fought. My step son is being medically retired from the Marines due to injuries he received while deployed to Afghanistan . So tell me….what have you done for this [email protected]

      • @DaleRichardsDuBois
         Your family seems to have contributed a lot.  What have YOU done?  You don’t get credit for them and then use that exact same argument when asking someone else what they did?  The word you are looking for is hypocrite.

        • I work at a military instillation in a hospital, I care for OUR SOLDIERS, I care for both the healthy and the ones who are wounded. I care for their family members, our retirees and their family members. I voluneteer many of my hours to my organization. So no I am not a hypocrite. But when you start bashing on the military, saying they don’t require an IQ test….like everybody is stupid who is in the military of something….Then I am going to say something and defend those who I love and care about. Seems like you have a bullying problem to me….But hey, it’s just an observation.

        • @DaleRichardsDuBois
          I may or may not be a bully, but that is irrelevant.  What I am is not politically correct.  You used the accomplishments of others to challenge someone’s accomplishments and I called you on it.  From your response, you have worthwhile contributions to be proud of.  USE them not something someone else did. 
           
          There is an Aptitude test and it defines which branch you can join and what job you can have.  I have met geniuses in uniform and I have also met individuals that were only good enough to be mine detectors, once.  (Walk that way, stomp, repeat till you hear a loud noise, stop)
           
          The military is no different than the civilian world.  I have met college graduates that thought “literacy” meant put the trash in the trash can.

  89. @sherrysamples @illustratormike I’m not surprised in the least. As far as “if its true”: an Admiral is mentioned. EZ to check w/his office.

  90. @05255969 I keep wondering if it was “accidental” or “intentional”? What a travesty! UNBELIEVABLE!

  91. This is a parody site people no stories are factual or true in any way. Try to get a clue and click the About Us Link at the top of the page.
    If a parody site has this much success spreading a false rumor. Imagine how easy it is for a politician.

    • THANK YOU. AT LEAST MY HEART WAS IN THE RIGHT PLACE.. IF YOUR FAMILY WAS IN THE MILITARY, WOULDN’T YOU WANT THEIR VOTES COUNTED?

  92. There are currently just under 200,000 troops stationed overseas. The troop vote is not unanimously republican by any means, in fact, it is usually very similar to the aggregate population. So even if Romney had a strong lead, say 75% (about 150k), then most of those votes would pretty much have to go to only one swing state to overturn it. Sorry republicans, I know it is disappointing, but we all have to get behind our politicians and work for a better tomorrow, sitting around sulking is not going to help.

    • @1formerUSmarine
       Get behind our politicians.  The same Obama that said vote for revenge?  Not to mention Obama’s brain (the real president) Valerie Jarrett who said those who oppossed Obama will pay.  I will never get behind a president like that.  I will do what dems did with Bush.

      • How about you do what I kept saying to Democrats during the Bush Era? Respect the office of the President and the man who holds it. Have some respect for your nation, the will of the people who have offered to protect, and political process of the United States of America.
        Or does that not count when it’s a black man in the office?

    • @1formerUSmarine
       That’s what Oboohoo said in 2008….”reaching across the table and working with Republicans”…..what a bunch of CRAP from the King Rat himself…..the Democrats will still do nothing but boo hooat whatever the Republicans present…..the House was the ONLY group that even presented a budget, whether go or not leaves to be said, but at least they presented…..

      • The day after Obama was elected the Republican House Whip stated that it was now the policy of the Republican party to ensure that the President not only does not pass a single thing he desired, but to lay the blame for every bad thing upon his presidency.
        How about Rove’s dirty tricks? How about the Sec-Def under Bush who said: “You go to war with the Army you have not the Army you want” after denying the purchase of body-armor and up-armor kits during the planning phase believing that it would send the wrong message?
        How about that every single budget put forth by the democrats could not gain any votes and anyone who attempted was told flat out before it even went to the floor that it would never get a single Republican vote?
        How about that more Democrats in Federal Office are military veterans than Repubicans now?
        So, which one is the King Rat?
        How about… All of them? Right and left. And anyone who identifies with a group, lock stock and barrel, and allows them to make their decisions for them instead of doing their own research is a goddamn fool.

  93. How the HELL are people believing this is a true story? It’s a SATIRE COMEDY SITE. Nobody who has EVER been in the military would believe this story. I mean, the mail getting delivered? Hell, I mailed myself a package during Desert Storm and my son got it via military mail in Afghanistan, only someone had eaten the cookies, drank the soda, used the toilet paper, and replaced the clean socks with a dead rabbit.
    I’m sure at any second the package I mailed myself from Germany in 1991 via military mail will arrive at my house.

  94. How is this possible? Why aren’t lawyers challenging this. These votes need to be counted!!! Democrats always seem able to petition courts to extend voting times….it seems to me that these service men and women should not be disenfranchised because the federal government is so screwed up, it can’t deliver ballots on time!!! This is seriously unjust, and likely illegal! Count their votes, now!!!!

  95. IKIS My Uncles second cousin on his wifes side was there when all this happened and saw it with his own 2 eyes, one of which he lost during the Vietnam War in a tragic bar fight, and the other is being treated for cataracts, and he swears this is true! As soon as he wakes up and sobers up I’m going to ask him myself.

  96. @HannahSternberg @lachlan It’s satire. did you even read it? It says they asked them to vote 8 months ago. see the other headlines there?

  97. @NathanWurtzel Satirical and untrue, but I can say for sure that my BiL never received his ballot in the Gulf. @lyndseyfifield @lachlan

  98. @TheDuffelBlog Real shockha. Who ever thought our Military would get to vote anyway. LIBS been working on this SCAM for 4 years

  99. Why is everybody bitchin its time for action lets get this traitor out of office lets demand impeachment a recount and hold IT accountable!! America will end up like Rome !!Gone 4 ever..obango has a muslim advising him on all matters forign and domestic who is this valerie who he calls his spine…never knew he had one ! Ha this persons reputation is linked with corruption yet that is his close advisor!! Time for action if not this country deserves whats coming

    • @starsidegirl Why is it when the Republicans lose, there’s no self-examination? Why don’t they ask themselves about how their radical viewpoints have repelled so many moderate Americans? Instead, many just come across with even MORE radical tripe. Yelling at and threatening moderate America will NOT magically get them accept your wacky ideals.

      • @starsidegirl
        WOW! Republicans radical? Moderates voted Republican. Maybe you should read a newspaper or a history book. Wacky ideals? Respecting the military, the constitution, the rule of law, the unborn, the elderly, and all Americans right to vote and their vote counted. The military should be the first counted since they are the ones who willing serve their country on a daily basis. They sacrifice so much and are willing to lay down their lives for others as a first line of defense against our enemies.
         
        If that’s radical, I’m a Repubican and proud to be one!

  100. Wow this story is being put out as real online by people unfamiliar with the military. They don’t recognize the satire. It’s making it’s way thru facebook…I foresee it going thru facebook like a tsunami.

    • Karen, it’s not that we’re not familiar with the military. We hear stories about the difficulty some military members have in making ends meet, how hard it is for spouses to get employment when the military keeps transferring the family from duty station to duty station, etc. As a taxpayer who benefits from the military and their service to this country, it is important for me and other taxpayers to do what we can to support the miilitary, including the right to cast absentee ballots. Yes, jokes can be made about other things like quality of toothpaste, uncomfortable cots, etc. The right to vote and legal issues associated with this right should be handled in a straightforward manner so everyone has accurate information. The right to vote is no laughing matter. Just ask someone living in a country in which this is not a right. If the military’s right to vote is being threatened due to mismanagement, let civilians know about it so we help by writing our elected officials to urge that action be taken to protect rights. But, don’t let the right to vote be subject to any form of satire. Would you want Election Officials in your locality treating your right to vote with satire?

      • You should read their FB site about said posting. They are looking on here checking out the civilians responses not only laughing at them, but also insulting them.
        Pretty pathetic I say.

  101. Thats awful. Military men & woman die to protect us and fellow citizens can’t even make sure there voted count? There’s no excuse for that.

  102. The issue of counting absentee ballots, particularly our military men and women, should NEVER be dealt with as satire, if in fact this is satire. Your home page states that MOST of the content on the website is saterical, but I wish to point out that this story is making the rounds on Facebook. It is being shared as fact. If it is not fact, it shoud be labeled as such. How is the reader, unfamiliar with your Blog, to know if this is the ONE story that is NOT satire and should be read with concern for our military? There’s humor and then there are stories that cross the line. Having a story like this plays upon the emotions of people who are vulnerable after an election, military men, women, their families and friends, who want to know if military absentee ballots were handled properly. I strongly urge The Duffel Blog to label such stories as satire or factual. It is true that there were concerns about the military vote and whether absentee ballots were going to be handled in a timely manner. This story does no favors to the military or to the public who should be able to rely upon the correct or timely handling of absentee ballots in a close election. Like Jeanetta, I am disappointed in your “news” story. You made no effort to distinguish this as satire. I think you have crossed the line.

Like Jeanetta, I am disappointed in your “news” story. You made no effort to distinguish this as satire. I think you have crossed the line.

  104. If this story has any validity, here are some questions that need to be asked before you come to any conclusions. How many military votes are involved here? In which states would they be counted and what is the ratio of Obama to Romney votes? The story makes it sound like every soldier voted for Romney and they were all from swing states. I find it hard to believe that something like this can happen in todays world, but if it did, it doesn’t necessarily mean that anything would be different. I guess the right must feel like the left after the 2000 election. We all know that thousands of uncounted votes in democratic counties in Florida were thrown out and Chad became the state Bird.

    • @jmeade
       I don’t know where you got your facts but I live in Florida and all ballots with hanging chads were hand counted in the 2000 election. Selective memory maybe. P.S. there is a thing called Fact check and Nexus, try those before you post

    • @GlendaLanders
       You don’t need the last five words of this post.  Romney is a big embarrassment says enough.

  105. guys… voting is just another illusion given us by tptb… it’s now time to start looking forward to armageddon and the 7 year TRIBULATION!!!

  106. After reading many more comments here, Its clear that the definition of ‘conservative’  should be changed to the conserving of awareness. Limiting awareness decreases the ability to have a sense of humor. This would explain why even many people who realized the story is not true are not able to see the humor in it.

  107. Deployed Military requested 55,000 absentee ballots (a sharp decline from 2008). Considering this, he would need the following votes to have won:
    Ohio: 100,000 – 18 Electoral Votes.
    Virginia: 110,000 – 13 Electoral Votes.
    Colorado: 113,000 – 9 Electoral Votes.
    Wisconsin: 205,000 – 10 Electoral Votes.
    Pennsylvania: 287,000 – 20 Electoral Votes.
    The article doesn’t say exactly how many votes may have been lost or not counted (which really sucks, cause everyone’s vote should count), doing the math above, he would have needed at least 323,00 votes from those reported on in 3 different states, assuming he won Florida (which at this he is not).
    Your math doesn’t add up at all. Please report facts. These votes, while important to be counted, would not have swung any of the critical states by any means.

  108. @VRWCTexan @JohnCornyn @gretawire Why wouldnt their votes count? They voted on time & arent responsible 4 when theyre received. They matter

  109. @tamimarler @jeanniemcbride @BretBaier @JenGriffinFNC No doubt military votes would’ve carried Romney. They’re only allowed to die 4 votes.

  110. @josepheach Or how about the one w headline “Blasting Shrill Whistle Throughout Ship Great For Morale, Navy Study Finds”. duh.

  111. @adamsbaldwin @waywor87 Adam, that’s a poorly-executed satire site, someone pointed it out to me yesterday

  112. @SoCalLynn This is OUTRAGEOUS. Aside from the impact on election, our troops were disenfranchised! @AriFleischer

  113. What’s astonishing is that conservative, like that nutjob Victoria Jackson, think this article is real. They don’t get that it’s a satire on the historically slow delivery of military mail.

  114. It’s pretty funny that some polling places let votes be placed till 2 am because the line was so long.  Why can’t these military votes be counted?  Seems like bull-crap to me….  I agree with Jason_Wise…..

  115. Bush ran the country into the ground first, Obama grabbed the baton in the relay race and keeps it going.

  116. Great satire! It would be interesting to find out how many ‘conservatives’ (read Romney supporters) and how many ‘liberals’ (read Obama supporters) thought it was real.

  117. @TheDuffelBlog The fix was in from the start! facilatated by the drive by media. Nothing well be done so we live with this outcome.

  118. @jeanniemcbride For shame on our Government, the ballads were went in plenty of time and should count.

  119. @onefactatatime but don’t tell any of those people u tweeted it to. Let ’em figure it out themselves. (except for Trump, they probably did).

  120. I believe the Ballots should be Grandfathered and counted. All because of mail problems is no excuse not to count them now. This was a rigged election if they are not counted.

  121. I am just going to say this…whether the story is true or not. During my husband’s 16 years in the military, his absentee ballot was lost, didn’t get there in time or didn’t get counted. This has happened before…under Clinton and Bush as well….quit trying to pin crap on Obama that has been going on FOR AGES

  122. @ConservativeGal Colonel @AllenWest is the perfect person to demand that the #Military votes not counted will be counted. OOH-RAH! #SOT

  123. @JLBeight they wont count them now. GOP caved to quickly. obviously it doesnt bother you. u must be a DEM in disguise!! bye bye. BLOCK

  124. @JLBeight how can someone re label ballots as AMMO? duh, the weight diff would be staggering. gimme a break

  125. Say what you want, but there is nothing in this story that suggests it is a joke.  Of course I found this out after I shared it on Facebook and made a complete fool of myself in front of everyone I know, that this story is in fact false. Can someone please tell me how an average citizen who has never been in a war zone can tell this is a joke?  I read every single word of it and had no reason to believe it was not true.  Now I feel, and look like an idiot.  Whatever, I am done reading the news after this.  If publications can not make it a point to clearly distinguish satire from legitimate reporting, then who am I to believe anymore?

    • @JeanettaThompson
       The joke is Military mail is very slow and often lost in transit. I almost posted it thinking it was real too. But I remember care packages taking weeks to arrive when I was active. The sarcasm is meant to be understood by soldiers.

      • @JeanettaThompson
        Everyone is entitled to a mistake.  I have been in a war zone and it fooled me at first as well.  Just keep on keeping on and it will be alright in the end.

      • Ahh…I see.  Well I just had to announce to all of my friends on FB that I posted illigitimate information.  I’m a pretty outspoken Anti Obama person, and everyone knows I hate that he is our POTUS for 4 more years, but I am not willing to rely on false info to back up my reasoning.  This kinda ticks me off.  I guess it is my own fault to an extent but really, how am I supposed to tell?

        • @JeanettaThompson
           One part that makes the story an obvious joke is the story says they voted 8 months ago… The candidates were not officially nominated as the party representatives until the national conventions in September (2 months ago)

    • @JeanettaThompson
       All you have to do is click on their home page to see the other “stories” to figure it out. Here’s a samping “Study: Random, Pointless Formations Tied To Increase In Combat  Performance”. And “Army Replaces Defective Radios With Carrier Pigeons, Smoke  Signals”. And, BTW, if you see a story on a website called The Onion, it’s satire too.

    • I feel the same way. An organization I have “liked” on Facebook shared this story. I had every reason to be concerned. A couple of months ago, I saw stories concerning absentee ballots and whether they would be able to get them in on time. I had every reason to believe this story would be connected to the stories I had seen. At the top of the story, The Duffel Blog should have clearly labeled it as having been authored by someone who does stand up comedy, and not bury that several lines below the article. When shared, the author’s background does not show up, and puts red on the faces of those who have concern for our military and try to stand up for them. Shame on The Duffel Blog.

    • @JeanettaThompson To answer your question,:”Can someone please tell me how an average citizen who has never been in a war zone can tell this is a joke?”: the author is a comedian. (Did you read his bio at the end of the blogpost?)

    • @JeanettaThompson “While we were waiting we came under fire so we dumped a bunch of them in the Hescoes. We didn’t dig those ones back out.” That should have been your first clue.

  126. After reading, the satire is clearly evident. The headline throws people for a loop though. Good spoof article. I wrote a similar story describing the declaration of Texas as an independent nation as a result of Obama’s re-election.

    • Well I can say this much I saw a petition for Texas secession to be brought up in a legislative hearing (or something like that) in January, get roughly 7K signatures in a 2 hour period last night.  I like the idea of Texas secession, to be perfectly honest with you, but I just don’t think that in reality, it is possible.  The federal government has entirely too many assets here in Texas, and contributes entirely too much money to Texas Interstate Highway systems and other federal assets for us to just suddenly tell them screw you we’re our own country now.  I know this much I do not want Barack Obama as my President.   Put simply, his agenda pretty much goes against everything I am and that I stand for.

        • The other 49 states would love to see Texas secede, seeing how it’s the biggest deadbeat in terms of Federal dollars pumped into it versus taxes paid. Blue America is well rid of you red stae losers.

      • @JeanettaThompson
         You are dreaming.  In the real America, we are ready to let the Republic of Texas and any states that want to join it go.  The states that cost us tax dollars are red; we blue states support them.  Just agree that you won’t bring back slavery, take half the assets and half the deficit, and get your constitutional ammendment ready.  I, for one, have had enough of you guys.  Go re-raise your Confederate flags and all hail Rick Perry and Ron Paul.

  127. If this is all true, and I believe it is, then we as American citizens as well as our beloved military personell- THANK YOU SO MUCH by the way, should DEMAND this SNAFU be corrected and ALL military votes be counted and certified. I would NOT have imagined that ANYBODY in any branch of our military would have voted for this administration to be reelected after its’ bungling of the Lybian catastrophe. He won’t leave anyone behind for hurricane damage but, will allow 4 brave Americans to die at the hands of these cowardly bastards and then LIE about it being caused by a video. Shameful!

  128. I just got the best laugh of the morning, everything about this article was meant to be funny. My gosh, some of you are really stupid. Maybe you should google “satire” so you know what it means. Someone actually posted this on facebook and was all amped up. What a fool, but I got a big kick out of reading it, so for that, I thank her.

  129. This is not right and something should be done about it. It was a planned attack on you because he knew what it would do. This is the leader we have and it saddens our hearts. You serve our country and your vote should of counted first. Thank you all for your sacrifice and sorry we have a leader who’s selfish and out to destroy this country. God Bless you all!

  130. I agree…not really a believable story at all. Now, I do believe that many of our service members were disenfranchised during this election. But, “dumped in the hescoes?” Why would they have dumped anything in the hescoes? First off, the Hescoes should have been filled up with dirt. Next, even if they thought that it was ammo…why dump ammo in what is supposed to be a protective barrier? Totally not believable!

  131. @Dcarter888K @foxandfriends Agree. Not going to buy a book you’re peddling, do something constructive. Thanks!

  134. Hmmmm
     
    Military absentee ballots would have given Romney the win? Wow first I think  your math is somewhat fuzzy. And your conclusion is arrogant to say the  least. Even if every single service member outside the US voted it is impossible  to say if this would have swung the vote in any state. Why? your assumption  that the majority of service members would vote for Romney. Fella as a  former 11B I would like to remind you that the US Armed Forces have a  significant black and hispanic voting block. And  in this election this  group  voted overwhelmingly for Obama. And while a minority in the service  a lot of women had huge problems with Romney. And lets not forget that the  popular vote went to Obama as well. So to imply that a voted denied was a  vote lost for Romney just because they are in the service is not just  disingenious it is just plain dishonest. Therefore this article is inflamatory  at best and seditious at worst.
     
    Having said all of this if service members were denied the right to vote then  someone had damn well better fix it pronto. Like the right to freedom of speech,  freedom of assembly and association, freedom of religion (that includes Islam by  the way) and the right to bear arms, all are necessary in order to make voting a  legitimate exercise. The exercise of all these freedoms are in vain when denied  the right to vote

  138. Being Retired Military, I am embarrassed you would post this kind of horsecrap.  This didn’t happen and never WOULD happen.Get a life and quit causing stupid uproar.  BTW, I’m a Republican, voted for Romney/Ryan, so don’t think I’m on the outside looking in.

    • Before you call it crap you better check into it. We have a man in office that will do whatever he has to do to get what he wants. He’s out to bring this country down and he will succeed now because they chose Barrabas.

    • Trevor Loudon has studied these people and more along with other people. If you really want to see what has been going on around us for decades look for a movie called AGENDA:Grinding America Down. Trevor is interviewed in it. Trevor aslo has a website called New Zeal Blog.
      Obama is only a part of the problem.

  139. I have been reading the posts and After reading I realize it is not Obama’s fault. It is our fault. I did not vote for Obama. But i look at the name calling and the cuts no wonder our country is falling apart. We are Americans and we should be pulling together to fix our country. Instead I see people calling names (not all on here) and thrilled to hurt others. it does not matter what party you are a part of you should show some respect as you do the president and as you would want! We are suppose to be the United Nations not the Divided Nations. We need to pull together before it is too late!

    • @RevDianaLadyhawk Obama went from hope and change as his platform in 2008 to division and class warfare this time. HE is the top divider and now that he has been re-elected, he will do things we only thought were partisan. The House has passed 30+ bills that Harry Reid has refused to bring before the Senate. THAT is the reason for the so called do nothing Congress.
      “A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover they can vote themselves largesse from the public treasury. From that moment on the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most benefits from the public treasury with the result the a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy, always followed by a dictatorship. The average age of the world’s greatest civilizations has been 200 years” *Alex de Tocqueville*. Too bad many believe one can repeat the same things over and over expecting different results. *The government big enough to give you everything you want is big enough to take it all away” *Thomas Jefferson*

  140. I have been reading the posts and After treading I realize it is not Obama’s fault. It is our fault. I did not vote for Obama but i look at the name calling and the cuts.

       This is my exact thoughts also. Did you see how all of the sudden they come pouring in and all the tweets. Set Up if I’ve ever seen one. I hope he’s brought out and humiliated in front of the world. SOON!!!

  142. As a military family member absentee voter and former Military Postal Service civilian employee I have been debunking this myth all damn day on my Facebook and email.   Even if the actual absentee ballots never get to the voter they have the option of the federal write in absentee ballot that has to be postmarked by 2359 on election day.  Any military voter who didn’t vote chose not to take advantage of the many opportunities. 
     
    This is a fake story, and it’s funny, but mostly because of the idiots who act like they are being suppressed because of their own laziness.  Just because you want to believe it, doesn’t make it true.  Always read the fine print, the about page, or just the freaking comments from people who know it’s satire.

  143. Unfortunately this is a satire piece, as well as a piece of crap.This disgraces our military personnel, especially those in Afghanistan who in all reality did not get to vote. This is totally uncalled for. Shameful. America is reaching some new lows.

    • Amen and very well put… Its terribly sad the lack of morals America has become.. It can truly make one wonder, what America’s worth is anymore, as one can sit here and literally watch it go down the tubes.

    • @JTWarren You say, “Unfortunately this is a satire piece. . .”, but I say< “FORTUNATELY, this is a satire piece.” As an apparent member of the radical right, you wanted it to be true to prove some kind of spurious point. I, as a all-embracing progressive, am relieved that it’s not! That speaks volumes to me about the difference between our philosophies..

  144. Obviously not a true story.  About as true as the one about the entire cast of Stars Earn Stripes being killed in Afghanistan.  People, COMMON SENSE!!!

    • @tired of crap
       Yes it is true and it was told way before the election they wasn’t going to get to vote. It made a lot of people angry and still does. Obama is not stupid he knows what buttons to push to get what he wants and you will find out for yourself before long. ROOD AWAKENING!! OOPS! To late. His agenda is working and people like you are the ones he has fooled. WAKE UP PEOPLE and take the blinders off.

  145. So… hundreds of thousands of ‘Official Government Documents’ re: military election ballots, were delayed, destroyed, pilfered and delayed again… and nothing is to be done to count these votes?  We are not going to coiunt the votes of the people who are defending our rights to hold elections?  Does anyone else find this to be disgusting and disgraceful?

    • NO! It was a huge lie at the expense of Conservative. You can find them here, in two separate posts of them laughing about it and coming onto this page of theirs to laugh at peoples comments.

  146. if this is true…the government took away one of our God given rights..especially to those that are out there on the front lines, defending out freedom!!! I am OUTRAGED BY THIS!!!!

  148. We need to demand and petition for a recall on the election and see to it that all legal citizens have the chance to vote, in or out of the country and not be handled by the lying government that we have now.  The only way to handle this is recall.  The commies in there will stop at nothing and we shouldn’t either.  If the Repulican party has any guts at all they will see to it that this happens.  Hey Romney, quit being a WIMP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  149. Yup. Shared for peer review. Reading the comments on the share tab above is pretty effing awesome in itself.

  150. @hlm25933 Can this possibly be true? I am astounded. This is just so wrong. HORRIBLE. Could it really have swung the election for Romney?

  151. @opalessense @gretawire . This is all so sickening. You would think Obama did not win the election. He is our President for 4 more years.

  152. @timdumais Unfortunately it’s not true. Even though many didn’t arrive or get to vote, not enough to make a diff. Thanks for the RT

  153. @SincerelyAmanda It should go to the #SurpremeCourt to see why they don’t have the right to vote under Obama.

  154. @junmoore @KristoferCowles @DarrellIssa Military doesn’t get 2vote? It is our Countries duty to make sure the 1s that serve VOTE @GOP #TCOT

  155. those who are send to war……. are not allow to vote for their country ????????
    What happen to the line.. ‘America,Land of the free’ ??????????

  156. Welp….since the TRUTH is that MANY ballots were lost when a plane crashed…and many MORE were NEVER sent so the Military COULD VOTE–WHY wouldn’t this be UN-believable? Liberals did everything they COULD to suppress the vote of the Military…in the LAST TWO POTUS Elections! so LAUGH your asses off over this…IT IS NOT DAMN FUNNY!

    • @SunnydSmiles
      It’s fake,  As a military postal service worker during the last two elections I know for a fact that ballots are given top priority and those that have to be sent forward are processed immediately, even if we have to call the commanders to find a good address for them.  No one is trying to suppress anyones votes, there is not way to tell who is a conservative or liberal by the ballot envelopes so anyone suppressing the other side would also suppress their side.

  157. I finally got some mail this week that was sent to me at my FOB unfortunatley it was the one I was at in 1971 in vietnam.
