1. Nepalis Line Up to Vote


    from NTDTV Added 134 1 0

    All over Nepal, droves of voters gather at neighborhood temples and schools to cast their votes with hopes of a new and peaceful country. Long lines are seen outside the many polling stations as the voting get underway. All under the watchful eyes of international election observers. [Jan Mudler, Election Observer]: "The reading I have gotten from the polling stations I have visited until now is positive, there are several reports from elsewhere in the country that it is not completely okay, so, let's not praise the day until it is over, we have to await developments." Most shops are closed and the streets are quiet due to a vehicle ban to prevent violence and illegal voting practices. About 135,000 police are keeping watch. Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter is also heading a monitoring mission. [Jimmy Carter, Election Monitor]: "Any violence is unfortunate but I think it has not interrupted the process of elections." Many Nepali Royalists are worried about the idea of the monarchy being abolished and are calling for a referendum. [Rambahadur Tamang, Retired Office Employee]: "Since the King has been around for a long time, he should be given a proper place." The elections are a key demand of Maoist former rebels who ended their decade-long civil war in 2006. [Haripiya Aryal, Retired Airline Employee]: "The objective that people have been fighting for a long time will be accomplished and peace will also prevail, I am confident about that." But rebel armed groups have called for a boycott of the polls and threatened voters in the country's southeast. They do not trust a promise of greater regional autonomy after the election. Ballot boxes will be collected in Kathmandu immediately after polls close and votes are counted. But it could be weeks before the result is announced.

                  • Boston Tea Party Redux


                    from Jake Doty Added 98 1 1

                    This is not intended to be a statement in favor of or against any specific political viewpoint, but rather an illustration of the current state of American political discourse. My experience of the Tea Party event on the Boston Common on April 14, 2010, was one of bewildered amusement. Nobody was making any sense. Everyone was shouting, no one was listening, and dozens of individuals wandered the crowd in search of counter-protesters, or "infil-traitors," to argue with. Just as often, they ended up arguing with fellow Tea Party members. Some brought the mob mentality into one-on-one arguments that lasted only a few seconds before dramatically shouting their final point and disappearing into the crowd before a response could be given. While others held relatively coherent discussions - as coherent as a discussion between two people with different sets of facts can be - for as long as an hour, the end result was at best, a civil agreement to disagree. I was left, not with any answers or conclusions about the Tea Party or anything else, only a vague awareness that something was very wrong with the way Americans talk to each other about politics.

                      Thousands of families have given up, and I want to give them hope. Thousands of kids have been abandoned, and I want to let them know that they’re not alone. And dozens of communities have been left behind, and I want to be their champion. Please watch this brand new video about my campaign and why I’m running. And please pass it along to anyone else you think might be interested.
