BILL ACETO YOU LET ME DOWN TODAY


One early voting place downtown was plenty for the many days we have.  You let the Chancellor play her obvious partisan politics defeat you.  Yes, I know, the radical lefties in town would have demonized Republicans with the students.  But they will do that anyway.  Demonizing is in their nature.  I really did not expect you to blink.

It would make students feel like real citizens to go down to their local court house and vote.

Blogger, I am unsure if Aceto had any choice in the matter. It was my understanding that the county was ordered by the state or possibly the court to have a polling place on campus. The state board mandated that the university could pick the location. If this assumption is correct, then Aceto would appear to have had his hands tied.

I have a large problem with the states' actions; or am I mistaken about what happened? The state is the entity that erred if I am correct.

Guy, on local matters, you are always better informed than I am. So much for the principle of local control. Thanks for the info

But we still have the ASU administration to question. The refusal to permit he use of Legends reeks of partisan politics. The school has become more corrupt. I cannot see the great chancellors of the past with whom I served, refusing to work with the local citizens.

Blogger said...

The reasons Everts gives for not allowing the use of Legends does not pass the smell.test. If Legends is so unsafe as they claim, why have they not shut it down?

Subject to flooding. What, one of those once in a hundred flood? For many years the Legends building was a store, a Winn Dixie I believe. After that it was a restaurant (I worked in it). When did the floods begin? Maybe from Democrat!s tears?

Blogger, you are 100% correct as to the malfeasance of ASU. This was so inevitable that I considered it a certainty. In my mind the decision was made when the state gave control of the situation to ASU. The state should have given ASU the choice of following the local boards decision or not having a polling place.

A 100 year flood does not occur once in a hundred years. It is a statistical statement that the conditions for such a flood happen in this time span. However you could have two of them within 2 seeks as happened in 1940 or there might be a thousand years between them. Using this as an excuse to deny the venue for voting purposes is ludicrous. Having a condition favorable for a weather event is not the same as having the event occur. Even if it did mean you have one chance in 100 years, the odds of it happening during early voting would be slim to none.

This Chancellor DID work with local citizens.

"It would make students feel like real citizens to go down to their local court house and vote."
Students will be real citizens when they go to the student union and vote.

No, they will feel like the snowflakes that this generation has become.

I think the Legends building is easier for people to see from the road but it has had sandbags on the Hardin St. side for years now. Flooding might be unlikely, but the Democraps did't come up with a novel idea.

Court required that there be at least one campus site back in 2014. That decision still stands. Law does not allow state board to commander a site for early voting, only for election day voting. Aceto got set up by Anderson early in the game by forcing him into requesting the Legends site from the Chancellor. I watched it happen and Aceto was dumb enough to fall for it. It was game over then. Lefties won that round. We dropped the ball.

You mean, individuals? Being a unique, free-thinking individual is a bad thing? Wow, you really are from Daddyville.

Yeah, Cupcake, that's what he meant.

Blogger said...

There he goes again Sark. He is so out of everything, he does not even know that the modern youths are called snowflakes. Boy is he dumb.

And, why are "the modern youths" called snowflakes?

The ASU students are nothing but sheep for the democratic party. Always have been. ASU IS the democratic party with all the liberal professors and their vote buying with their EXTRA credit if you go vote (after given a mark sample ballot). Why has the convacation center not been exploered as a polling place. Parking, handicapped access and open to the public. Students and employees alike can walk easily to this location.

Anonymous said...

I believe both sides eliminated the Convocation center as a potential site some years back. I can't remember why but I think it was a layout issue. I don't think there can be extra credit for voting. If there is, it would be illegal. I am over at ASU and have never heard this. I don't really care where the site is at ASU.

At least he should have recognized the Flake part.

Apparently, republicans are too sorry to work for the student vote.

Y'all republicans are so desperate. Have some self respect.

The polls reflect desperation within the Democratic party

Cyclops said...

As I understand, it was the state Elections Board that came up with the idea that the Chancellor got to decide between and the Student Union and Legends. There is a RINO appointed to the state board who sided with the lone Democrat.The state GOP thought they could persuade Evarts. Any local Republican could have told them she would support the Democrats.

The Dems know that the only they can win is to herd as many mindless zombie voters to the polls to vote democratic. If the polling place is the least little bit out of the way, the Dems job will be that much harder, so they fight tooth and nail for a location that students regularly pass through. And as for anonymous above who says that repubs should fight for the student vote -- well, if your paying attention, college students are now saying that any mention on campus of Trump or make America great again is hate speech and should not be allowed. Rigging the system -- put the poll in the middle of campus and ban republican speech from all of campus.

Blogger. For all your f us actually fighting the good fight, it might be nice if you got the facts before shooting us in the back like the State Board of Elections does every Time! 😡😡😡😡 In the future please verify before publishing! I am happy to assist.

Thank you, Anne Marie Yates. Both local political blogs seem to focus on attacking incumbent Republicans. At least Watauga Watch is honest about it.

Blogger said...

Anne-Marie in my anger and disappointment I fired off too soon. But between our readers and myself, l think we finally got it right. Did you read the post about Democras cheating. But because I bellieved this was just another case of republicans typically caving. I went temporarily insane. But tell me Annie-Marie will anyone ever fall on their sword in this party? I mean all the way to the top?
