It’s just the normal vote-counting process. Very boring. There is no need for citizens to keep an eye on what government officials are up to. Only conspiracy theorists care. If there’s any news, we will let you know. Check back in with us after Thanksgiving to find out who won.

After all, who ever heard of the public being interested in vote counting in Florida?

  1. Man, that brings back memories. Whatever did happen that time? Did Chad win or not, I remember reading something about Chad on the internet.

    Seriously, when this goes on, it is hardly ever good for the Republican. The D’s are the much more accomplished cheaters, and the Lyin’ Press will back ‘em until there is a concession speech… sometimes that doesn’t happen, but we know it’s over when the Lyin’ SOS goes back to her hotel room to drink another fifth and retire after a roll in the sheets with her favorite advisor.

    The woman in charge of elections in Broward County has multiple convictions for vote rigging and in 2014 created a “phantom district” to justify extra votes. None of her convictions for vote rigging apparently carried the penalty that she no longer be in charge of guaranteeing the security of elections.

    A federal prosecutor, Beranton Whisenant, went to Broward to investigate vote rigging, and was found dead on the beach with bullets in the back of his head. Scott Israel’s sherriffs determined it was suicide.

When regulations begin to impose themselves and fracking stops, and oil climbs, their SUVs will be a bit expensive to fill up. When their daughters are in high school with MS 13 members, well that move to private school will bite. When their sons and husbands have to compete with Indian H1Bs for a job, well there is always Uber. When the prisons are opened and the streets are not so safe for you, there is always Amazon for shopping but don’t try and buy a gun. But it will all be worth it. We will have stopped being mean to women.

  11. @Tiny Duck

    Its in the interests of America’s White/Jewish economic elites to have two viable political parties. The Democrats will never be allowed to dominate the political process, because if they do, the US will end up as a socialist dictatorship, and rich people don’t want that.

    That’s also the reason the Democrats are in a crisis at the moment. Working class whites refuse to vote for them, and their coloured voters and rich white donors don’t see eye to eye (coloured voters want socialists and donors want neoliberals).

    Also, think that Florida 2018 offers an example for the future. Guessing that if the Leftist revolution comes, it will not be based on Hate Whitey, but a steady, compounding tide of minority dysfunction. By then, the Right will have realized there are only so many political stands you can make in a day. Think of Hawaii or California, without Anglo institutions to fall back on.

    It will be like having a vocal, dysfunctional coworker, who oddly gets their way. The valuable coworkers, who realize actual work has to be done, concede one petty issue after another, until sure enough, the team is following the pace of the dysfunctional coworker.

    Combine this with Anglos’ tendency to attribute good faith and a willingness to compromise, and you get Florida 2018: felons now tip the scales and minority officials show up belatedly and conveniently with extra votes. In 2020, it will be something else, and so on.

    I usually vote third party when a race is positively not in play. I voted third party (usually libty but Chuck Baldwin once and Ralph Nader another) in every Presidential election since 1984 because I live in a state that is never in play historically for its presidential electoral votes-up until 2016 when I voted for Trump on the off chance that it really wasn’t so solid this time. I needn’t have worried as it turned out. I would have voted for Trump anyway as he was the best GOP candidate in a while, and he really pissed all the right people off.

    I don’t think so. Some people have asked, if the Dems were going to cheat and steal the election, why make it look so sloppy?

    The answer is that they already cheated on November 5th and 6th, and still came up short. They thought they had forged enough mail-in and provisional ballots to “win” handily, but they underestimated. This is already plan C, plans A and B were executed almost a week ago.

    George Soros’s most effective strategy is one of his least-talked-about– electing sympathetic secretaries of state. Few voters care or even know about this position, but they count the votes. Sometimes twice.

    Hard Lefty Associate Justice William O. Douglas suffered a major stroke in December of 1974. He refused to retire until November, 1975. He tried to work from home for 11 months but working from home is an impossibility when you are supposed to be an active Associate Justice of the US Supreme Court. After Douglas retired, he showed up at the Supreme Court one day in his wheelchair and found out that his former chambers had been assigned to his successor. The poor, old sick man was shocked and hurt.

    (Before Douglas had his stroke, he accused Hoover’s FBI of trying to plant marijuana on his vacation property).

    Opa-locka is in Dade County, not far from Broward.
    40 years ago I used to fly airplanes out of Opa-locka airport. It was, at the time, the busiest or second busiest General Aviation airport in the country. (Alternated with one in Southern Cal depending on season).
    For some reason I can’t remember, I went up to the attic of the FBO (Fixed Base Operator) I was flying from to get into the FBO next door- I think someone had locked their keys inside and I could climb through a window or something. I went to the maintenance shop and climbed up the stairs into the attic.
    The attic was filled with cardboard boxes that weren’t sealed, marked with Dade County election stickers. Curious, I looked inside.
    Ballots. Thousands and thousands of ballots were in dozens, maybe hundreds of boxes. And none were sealed, guarded, or even hard to get to.
    I remember being amazed at how easy it would be to alter a recount.
    I told this story to a friend at the time. His mother worked the polls during elections. She told me she wasn’t surprised- she said the Democrats routinely bussed in mentally ill people from institutions who needed “assistance” voting. She would hear these assistants telling and showing their charges to vote Democrat. Some had pre-filled out forms. She said complaining was pointless, as the whole staff knew and had given up trying to change things- those who even cared. Most, being Latins, couldn’t have cared less.
    This was one of my seminal moments in realizing where immigration was taking this country. Miami in the ’70′s was a foretaste of the third world shithole this country is rapidly becoming.
    To Tiny Dick I say, be careful what you wish for. Brazil looks a lot better on television than in reality.
    Then came the riots of 1980. The anti-Cuban flavor of the riot has been memory holed. The blacks hated the Cubans. Still do.
    Then Miami Vice came along a few years later and made it all look glamorous. I lived through all that as an observer. Was a Mutiny Club member, had a Donzi. Got chased the while length of Biscayne Bay after leaving the Mutiny by the cops who thought we were smuggling. We weren’t, never did anything with drugs. The cops had blown out the running lights on their boat so we decided not to stop for an unidentified vessel chasing us at over 55 knots.
    We recognized them in time to avoid a tragedy. People were getting killed for their speedboats back then. We were heading toward a shoot or surrender situation and most who surrendered were killed. The cop shone his handheld light on his dead blue light, and we gambled he was for real. Turns out he was, he was just curious why we were moving so fast at night- which was legal. Just because we could.

    I look at it as the first vote in the next election. They sure don’t ignore third-party votes after a close election, and it affects their strategy for the next one.

    New York is the best state for third parties because they have the choice to run their own candidate or to endorse a major party’s. That gives them some power, especially when they’re new and popular. James Buckley won a US Senate only eight years after his party was founded.

  35. Florida is a permanently marginal state and also one of the largest states that can sway the presidency or the House one way or the other, so it is no surprise that elections are hotly contested, however so far we have accepted the results once they have been tabulated as much as humanly possible.

    For example, we did not take to the streets when George W. Bush won the state over Al Gore with a 5-4 vote in the Supreme Court in which the justices, after considering arcane legal arguments, all seemed to vote for the party of the President who had appointed them, but when elections are so close and may depend on hanging chads and butterfly voting forms, blind voters, and people barred from voting because they have the same common name as felons, one side is always going to feel hard done by.

    Perhaps we should stop bothering with elections, have a coin toss, and use the money that would have been spent on the election to throw a big Hallowe’en party for everyone.

    I agree that this is a tremendously effective phrase.

  38. Frankly I believe that the Democrats rigged the House election too. Think about the suspicious FOX call.

    I was watching on ABC News. The hosts looked very somber and upset, though trying to hide it well. The probability of a R House victory went to 50%. Suddenly, FOX called it for the Dems. They were very morose and glum, too much so. Seemed fake to me. Then, the ABC anchors became much more relaxed. The probability plummeted went to 10%.

    Don’t know what happened, but the Florida and Arizona races especially call everything into question. The slide into the 3rd world will continue. Again, Trump is the only realistic way of stopping this banana republic voting system, but he’s already following his regular pattern, of much bluster but no results. The unique decentralized nature of the United States government is also very conducive for fraud.

    Just think about what has happened in the past 100 years. Europe and her new world offshoots were heads and shoulders above the rest of the world. Only Japan seemed to be somewhat on par with them in some areas. The defeat of the Ottomans allowed the Europeans to encroach upon the middle east in a manner not seen since the Crusades. Yet after that disastrous war, WW2, the Cold War, the various police actions, etc, etc, the European world has squandered away its advantages and is now on the receiving end of an encroachment by the muslim world that they could never have dreamed.

    This is an excellent observation. It’s the theory behind Smart Fraction Theory, that idea that you need a population intelligent enough that at least about a quarter of the population has an IQ above 105. That puts enough competent people in jobs like office supervisors and ranking police and important clearical positions that they maintain the ethical norms of society. At a lower level things quickly break down.

    La Griffe du Lion redid the GDP to national income graph in a way that showed a sigma curve relating the two, flatish left and right, with a sudden drop beneath a particular average national IQ. The danger is that gradual lowering of IQ is not that noticeable, in economic output, until a certain point, at which it drops precipitously. It’s impossible to counter at that point, due to demographic momentum, even if a concensus could be reached that IQ is the problem, which never could happen.

    I know a guy who bought a Cigarette (same guy, Don Aronow, built both:he made a living starting speedboat companies and selling them to people who wanted a who’s-got-the-bigger-dick business, they’d go broke, et al) from a tax auction for less than the value of the three aluminum big block Chevies for parts. He rebuilt the boat with a PT-6T Twin Pac out of a wrecked Life Flight helo . It would be a fantastic boat in Florida, but this guy lives in Kansas, which means it sits around gathering dust. There’s no place to open it up within 1500 miles.

    Aronow got cacked by former business associates. From Wikipedia:

    On February 3, 1987, Aronow was murdered in his car at the end of 188th Street in Miami where his boat companies operated. Aronow had just left from a meeting with Bob Saccenti, part owner of Apache Power Boats together with partner Ben Kramer. Witnesses said that a powder blue Lincoln pulled next to Aronow’s car from the opposite direction, and when Aronow rolled down its window the driver opened fire. Another witness tried to follow the Lincoln as it fled but could not catch the killer(s). The Lincoln drove over the grass to get away.

    Nearly a decade later, two men pleaded no contest to charges related to Aronow’s killing.[3] In 1995, career criminal Bobby Young admitted to shooting Aronow and pleaded no contest to second degree murder, eventually providing a full confession in 2009 shortly before his death.[3] Ben Kramer, winner of the 1986 American Power Boat Association Offshore Championship, pleaded no contest to manslaughter in 1996.[3][4][5] Kramer had a business dispute with Aronow after buying the latter’s USA Racing Team but was forced to sell it back to Aronow after the Customs Service refused to do business with him.[3] Kramer was already in prison on a life sentence with no possibility of parole following 1988 and 1989 convictions for drug smuggling and gun charges, as well as receiving a 1990 conviction for a failed escape attempt by helicopter from a federal prison near Miami.[4]

    The story was also the basis for the 2009 documentary film Thunder Man: The Don Aronow Story.

    I voted via an electronic machine, and have done so for years now. Im thinking we are going to have to phase out any paper ballots in the future (so none can be hidden or miraculously “found”), and will have to use things like fingerprint recorders/iris scanners to make sure people dont vote twice.

    BTW……a method of cheating that Dems pulled this time in Tennessee (by word of mouth) was to instruct a lot of their voters in Repub-leaning areas to vote in the last two hours of voting on election night, really taking their time in the booths, ensuring long lines for all those employed Republicans getting off work, upping the chances the Republican- leaning voters dont want to wait 2 hours in line and drive off. I seen this where I voted personally. Ive never had to wait more than 5 minutes to vote on election day (primary this year), until this year. A shockingly long line with over 150 people in it (many minorities) were at the school I usually vote at. In other years, I have been in line behind perhaps 5-10 people, almost all white.

This is exemplified in the song by the account of a young Australian soldier who is maimed at the Battle of Gallipoli during the First World War. The song’s imagery evokes the devastation at the Gallipoli Landings. The protagonist, who had travelled across rural Australia before the war, is emotionally devastated by the loss of his legs in battle. As the years pass he notes the death of other veterans, while the younger generation becomes apathetic to the veterans and their cause. The song incorporates, at its conclusion, the melody and a few lines of lyrics of the 1895 song Waltzing Matilda by Australian poet Banjo Paterson.

    The only time I’ve seen AG Pam Bondi is when she’s on Fox News shilling for the USAG position. Last tweet is on Nov 9 talking about an app to report voter fraud. How’s that working for you?

    Meanwhile, here in Arizona we are supposed to accept that 85% of Maricopa County (with over 100k more Republicans than Democrats) went for Kirsten Sinema, with the democrats consistently discovering more votes whenever another red county vote dump comes in.

    Frankly I believe that the Democrats rigged the House election too.

    I have seen some numbers showing a pretty consistent gap between Trump support and Republican GOPe House congressional support, of about 5% or more. And most of those House contests which Democrats staged upsets were in that range.

    So I believe it is more of people refusing to support Paul Ryan and his cronies rather than Democrat fraud across the board. Sure the Fox call was crooked as hell and may have cost some seats in CA, and Democrats cheat wherever they can, but if fraud produced this result then the Democrats would have picked up more Senate seats and governor seats.

    Most people aren’t seeing a huge bump in their Christmas bonuses, even in the suburbs since the tax breaks have only benefited the 1%. Trump is already driving up oil prices with his insane Bolton/Saudi/Israeli led attack on Iran. Trump is not really cracking down H1B visas either, but the crackdown on unskilled Central Americans is driving up the cost for landscaping, restaurant workers and nannies, which is not making suburban moms happy. Suburban moms are more worried about incels shooting their daughters than Latino gang members raping them. So Trump is probably going to continue to suffer with suburban women.

    But on the plus side, Trump just gave Adelson’s wife a Presidential Medal of Freedom, so we all can sleep tight knowing that Israel is safe.

    In a country of millions of registered voters and counties all over the economic and social trust spectrum this is impossible. The technology and the honest elections officials theoretically exist. In practice, elections are administered on dated equipment by county-level bureaucrats ranging from not-terribly-bright to complete dimwits with all sorts of axes to grind. Elections will routinely fall within a statistical margin of error. Add in growing racial and ethnic resentment, social entropy, bankrupt municipal governments and that margin gets bigger. It ain’t Norman Rockwell’s America any more.

    Georgia’s gubernatorial race was really, really instructive.

    The Republican was white cipher Brian Kemp, a former real estate developer. The job of real estate developer in Georgia is the easiest in the world. Get your permit from the obliging local government to build on any patch of bare ground with zero regard for traffic, infrastructure, or environmental impact. Take it to SunTrust Bank whose gunslingers will underwrite anything titled “Business Plan,” or some local “bank” which is mostly just a pile of warrants, or some REIT run by managers who’ve never left their L.A. or NYC offices wondering what to do with all their geriatric investors’ money. Plop down the cheap pre-fabricated shit with your illiterate Aztec workforce. Sell it to the latest group of whites/Asians desperately chasing “good school districts” or the enormous crop of atomized, single women working at professional service firms. On to the next scam.

    The Democrat was Stacey Abrams, a black lesbian with a beer gut. She somehow finagled a Yale law degree (read about it, what you can find any way–she did not do the traditional paper chase). She was briefly given an office by Sutherland Asbill and since then has mostly worked as a perenially indebted “black female entrepeneur” i.e., government and NGO gibmedats.

    A metro Atlanta district full of corporate middle-managers living in neighborhoods with $400,000 entry fees voted for a woman who said she wanted to take the guns and erase Stone Mountain. Lots of transplanted goodwhites in Georgia. These people seem to be under the impression that Muh Constitution and Muh Prince Apples will survive the democratic process.

    The black bloc vote was astounding. They could have just looked on the census and assigned her the votes.

    How many Big White states are left–Ohio and Pennsylvania? Wisconsin and Minnesota have too many public employees.

    The good news is in 75 years things will be so out of control that even the blacks and latinos will vote for Brian Kemp’s great-great-grandson, Brian Duterte Kevin Nassim Bolsonaro.

    The sustainability of the suburban mom standard of living depends on the maintenance and advancement of an ever more fragile technical infrastructure; i.e. she is dependent upon the very incels she loathes.

    This shit testing and punishment of incels and beta males is partly in service to the belief that their males will straighten up and be more alpha.

    Anyone here remember Sammy’s East Side on the 79th St. causeway down from the Playboy Club toward Miami Beach? Private high-end club. Used to serve great Chinese food till 6:00 AM. I remember leaving there one night around 5:30 AM and a guy who been there left around 6:00 and got killed outside with a shotgun. Big police chase afterwards, I think the killer got killed by the cops. A professional hit, can’t remember why. Sheer chance a cop was riding by when it happened and gave chase.

    Miami at that time had a tiny nightclub scene, mostly the Grove, and you dressed up for it. South Beach was a retirement home. And virtually no all-night places-Tony Roma’s or The Toast, or La Caretta on Calle Ocho. But a tremendous amount of corruption. Remember Alex Daoud? His autobiography of political corruption is worth a read. Nothing gets done in Miami without greasing some palms.

    Metrorail was a giant scam to help out Steve Clark and the Mayor’s business interests. One of them was in the concrete business, the other in construction. Heard this from an insider. Projected ridership numbers were faked to get Federal funds. Reagan was right to call them out on it. A whistleblower told the media, one article, no follow-up.

    The machine gun duels in Dadeland and Omni? Unreal.

    The media could be bought. Knight-Ridder owed favors to certain people, they got media endorsements. Pre 1967, Knight-Ridder ran anti-unlimited immigration editorials, post 67 open borders all the way.
    Basically, as Esquire put it around 1980, “Miami-City of the Future” – i.e., perpetual third world corruption. An entire graduating class of the Police Academy was arrested for graft and corruption.

    The above pilot-writer’s experience is similar to Italo Calvino’s fictional short story, “The Watcher” in Calvino’s book, “The Watcher and Other Stories” about a young man volunteering as a “poll watcher” in “Cottelengo”, an insane asylum in Italy. The mad inmates of the asylum vote as readily as any other citizen and they get help in choosing the appropriate candidates with the assistance of the nun’s that operate the asylum.

    Steve, you need to read this book. No wonder it’s been memory-holed. The review claims it’s the most important political book of the last century. I think he’s right.

    I found the Opa-Locka reference. It’s exactly as I saw personally. The ballots were in the attic of Tursair, right next door was Hangar One (Beechcraft). I think the Cessna Pilot Center was a couple doors down, but I’m not sure after all these years. The book mentioned the stairs to the attic-exactly as I recall them. On the right side looking in from the ramp.

    Thanks very much for bringing this book to my attention. I knew some of the characters in the book by reputation or through mutual friends. Even Janet “Flamethrower” Reno is painted as the corrupt hack she really was, as opposed to her brief sainthood by the media for torching the Branch Davidians. There used to be a lot of speculation about Reno’s sexual orientation. I can say now, as she’s long passed, that most connected people knew she was a lesbian, and Ann Bishop (the channel 10 news anchor) was her lover. Her sexual orientation never became that big a deal in Miami, but the fact that her lover had a lot of power in the local media probably had a lot to do with keeping Janet Reno stories under wraps. Mostly involving refusals to pursue certain political crimes, like fixing elections.

That place was right out of a Sydney Greenstreet movie..with great food, incredibly cheap, and the greatest jukebox I’ve ever seen. All music from the 1930′s through the 1950′s. I found out years later that it was owned by the head of food operations for American Airlines. All torn down years ago.
    Also Villa Italia on Coral Way. Amazingly good Italian food practically 24 hours a day, in its early years. Later on it went downhill. Closed years ago, on Coral Way. There was one Italian place that was slightly better at around 2-3 times the price just off Dixie Highway, but I can’t remember its’ name.

    It’s hard to remember now, but Old Miami was an American City at one time.

  126. I looked up Votescam online. Found a full copy online (I’m buying a physical copy too, the author’s deserve it).

    WOW.

    Steve, you need to read this book. No wonder it’s been memory-holed. The review claims it’s the most important political book of the last century. I think he’s right.

    I found the Opa-Locka reference. It’s exactly as I saw personally. The ballots were in the attic of Tursair, right next door was Hangar One (Beechcraft). I think the Cessna Pilot Center was a couple doors down, but I’m not sure after all these years. The book mentioned the stairs to the attic-exactly as I recall them. On the right side looking in from the ramp.

    Thanks very much for bringing this book to my attention. I knew some of the characters in the book by reputation or through mutual friends. Even Janet “Flamethrower” Reno is painted as the corrupt hack she really was, as opposed to her brief sainthood by the media for torching the Branch Davidians. There used to be a lot of speculation about Reno’s sexual orientation. I can say now, as she’s long passed, that most connected people knew she was a lesbian, and Ann Bishop (the channel 10 news anchor) was her lover. Her sexual orientation never became that big a deal in Miami, but the fact that her lover had a lot of power in the local media probably had a lot to do with keeping Janet Reno stories under wraps. Mostly involving refusals to pursue certain political crimes, like fixing elections.

  129. Counting problems in South Florida
    Just heard that singing “100 bottles of beer on the wall” is now illegal in South Florida. Apparently the predetermined bottle count of beers on the wall are now in question and it is possible that some smuggled in a six pack when nobody was paying attention. Also some of the beer may have Near-Beer and many are arguing whether or not they should count. More to come…

    Its not necessarily a function of ethics, but of basic competence. The day-to-day tasks of maintaining a first world society requires a minimum level of intelligence. Its one thing for top 1% IQ people to be bankers, lawyers, etc; but the people doing things like maintaining elevators and sewer systems and power substations – if they’re a bunch of 80 IQ morons stuff simply doesn’t work anymore.

    The average guy driving around in an Otis Elevator van needs to be 100 IQ or so for society to work.

    steve has become terrible about this, that’s how.

    he lets every troll in the world post on every thread here year after year. these zero signal to noise ratio trolls are probably 20% of the comments now, with persistent trolls who contribute jack S allowed to post at will. they never get blocked or banned. but he routinely blocks good and insightful comments from long time posters.

    steve mainly just cares about the traffic, the views, and the money now. raising his comments count as high as possible is his primary interest, and he doesn’t want anybody to rock the boat. too much truth or insight or accuracy is bad for business at this point, even here, ostensibly the place for ‘real talk’.

    Great summary of the Banana Republic of Broward. Here’s the latest from Laura Loomer – boxes of ballots dumped by Broward County negro socialist at the Avis turn-in at FLL. BSO did a false flag bomb hoax when they were discovered to divert attention from Avis to Terminal 4.

    I’ve mentioned here before that S Fla has a permanent FBI Field Office investigating official corruption (incompetently) and couldn’t even keep the fraud out of its own new regional HQ building as its electrical c0ntractor, MC Dean, ripped off a bunch of valuable copper wiring from the project.

    It wouldn’t surprise me at all to learn that Miami-Dade, Broward, and Palm Beach are the three most corrupt counties in America nor to learn that Monroe was number four.

    The chain-of-custody rules for evidence to be admissible in our courts of law are pretty strict. Wikipedia has a good article about that; here are a couple of passages:

    Chain of custody (CoC), in legal contexts, refers to the chronological documentation or paper trail that records the sequence of custody, control, transfer, analysis, and disposition of physical or electronic evidence.

    When evidence can be used in court to convict persons of crimes, it must be handled in a scrupulously careful manner to prevent tampering or contamination.

    Are there no chain-of-custody rules for ballots that determine who our political leaders will be?

    “Broward County is 42.5% White…”

    that’s a laugher.

    most of these “Whites”…are Ashkenazic Jews.

    the Jews themselves term Broward an “Eruv”:

    that is, an outpost of Israel in ‘Murka.

    just ask Sheriff (((Scott Israel)));

    he knows all about it.

    I can’t find anything about the Collier brothers’ death, but part of that is their names being very common. Still, they were nationally known authors and there’s nothing. The Wikipedia page external link is dead.

    Elevator service people need to be over 100 IQ in fact. Not necessarily geniuses but a little smarter than average, because it’s a job where you can kill yourself or co-workers if you screw up.

    I worked for an electronics company that maintained some RF equipment located in elevator shafts in a few places. The techs had to ride the top of an elevator car with an elevator mechanic to get to these things and had to be harnessed in. I never did it but the stories were pretty wild.

    One of our guys got the tour of a sub-basement of one of these 1920s buildings where they had some huge old DC power equipment, and open frame knife switch panels that looked like something out of a 1930s horror movie. Gas vapor rectifiers and thyratrons mounted on black phenolic panels , horseshoe frame meters, the whole thing. All in immaculate dust free shape, the stuff was maintained to run the DC elevator motors in case the modern converter supply-a small box about 2×3 feet-took a shit. DC was originally generated by a steam turbine driving an open frame type motor by steam from the power utility. Since the power utility quit supplying steam decades ago, there was a large Deutz air cooled diesel engine designed for mine service and intake and exhaust plumbing to the top driving a gearbox to turn the 1920s generator. The building maintenance guys said that the engineering for this had cost millions in the late 1960s, but the city had special regulations for these buildings that meant they had to maintain this stuff. They could not certify a more modern system-there were simply no rules that provided for any change. It was either maintain the system in place or tear the building down. This same regulation kept a lot of union underground construction guys employed so the politics preventing a change in the rules were intense.

  142. @Anonymous

    Yep. Good example.

    There is an enormous amount of infrastructure that needs to maintained in order to provide what we think of as first world normalcy. It simply can’t be done by low IQ people. Situations such as the DC area metro – where the staff is close to 100% black and the system is now falling apart – will become the norm in the near future. Some is corruption but mostly its sheer incompetence.

    Yeah having borderline retarded politicians is annoying, but what will be truly depressing is when we come to accept as normal that things break and then do not get fixed for months or ever. I travel frequently through the Miami airport and there are escalators and people movers that stay inoperable for months at a time. Its just…normal now.

    Mitch Hedberg (RIP) would say that those escalators aren’t broke, they are just temporarily stairs.
