It is interesting reading the flow of thought in this thread. My church is based in Damascus and we have a number of Middle-Eastern immigrants to the United States in the congregation. The current government did a pretty good job of protecting members of minority religions withing its borders. The result of which is that many Syrians seem to have a very different view of Assad than what the administration has put forth. Not an angel by any means, but maybe one of the few options to maintain a secular state in that region?

When I ran for State level office in the 2002 Florida Libertarian party's "Operation Full Slate" there were a number of us paying attention to voter fraud issues. Being a third party you have a lot to overcome from within the system, fraud is part of that. The entire "hanging chad" issue was explained to me around 1982 by a college professor who told us how punch ballot votes could be manipulated. We saw a large municipal election overturned here in Florida due to ballot fraud.

Now when you consider how close the Florida election was, the areas where prior fraud existed and where the "chad" issue seemed to be focused, you can see how a national election can be impacted. If confidence is lost, there could be larger problems that can't be fixed.

In a secret ballot, who counts the votes is the key.

I can't say enough good things about the product. I don't normaly post here so let me give a brief introduction. My "normal" job is a computer administrator/security geek/programmer but I am also a volunteer state law enforcement officer. I have a long, but modest background in martial arts including some FMA.

From a practical, use it on the streets point of view I have not seen as much useful material in any training set I can think of. Unexpected, violent attacks have resulted in a number of injuries to fellow officers in my organization. I feel one reason for this is the lack of a robust solution to the kind of attacks commonly seen in the law enforcment encounter. Officers have to interact with people and that requires moving into the danger zone where knives and fists are very effective in a suprise attack. To make matters worse, they often have exposed weapons. So not only does the officer have to defend against the normal fight ending techniques, he or she must also prevent access to their weapon.

The Kali Fence and Dog Catcher allow someone with modest training and moderate physical ability a good chance of surviving an initial assault. This gives someone the needed time to orient and begin a meaningful counter attack that can include appropriate tools. Something many other techniqes do not seem to think about.

So starting tonight there is going to be at least one more guy in the State of Floida in a little different stance at the side of the road!
