Thanks, Yosem, I hope someone sends it to me

AND, it is not only the ballots that concern me, but HOW the paper 
ballots are counted

I am sure all u here must b familiar with the Stalin quote about who 
counts the ballots controls the elections

AND, I am sure all u here have already or could or know of those who 
have hacked into op scam (not a typo, but from my good friend Lucius, 
who will come to this list, I hope, if I ever have time 2 ask him as 
Egypt is getting most of my time now) e-voting machines. And I won't 
even bother to mention DRE's, which, alas, count many votes in the USA

How does Egypt vote, does anyone know, while we r on this?

See our website, below, for hacking of the op scams
