The video that was on the above post went someplace. I'm posting it again. It's Interestinghttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U5ut6yPrObw
I must say that I find the video very interesting. Lots of folks say No Way, Well I grew up in the northern part of Alabama. Lived in that area from about 1955 to 1962. Still as a young child I remember a few interesting things about that area. For a reference point the area that the movie Walking Tall, old version, Tenn. was about was about 30 miles north of us.
But back to the video point. Ballet boxes. Well I still remember going to go vote with my mother. Outside of the voting area I saw the Sheriff with his wife and men outside with saw horse tables just filled with the sheriff's wife's famous deep fried chicken and all the watermelon that you could eat. Remember if you needed help with those new voting machines one of the sheriff's men was there to go in with you and help you cast your votes. Well I went in with my mother to watch her vote. You stepped up to the machine, pulled the lever and the curtain followed the track and went around you. You then flipped the little levers to vote the way you wanted to. Then you pulled the big lever again and it recorded your vote and the curtain went back. Well think about these large metal machines and how big they were. Big machines, real big. But light. They must have been real light because as the machines were driving either near the Tenn river or going on one of the bridges going over the Tenn River the drivers must have hit a bump in the road and some of the machines (could have have the wrong totals anyway) flew up (remember, they were light) and landed in the river. They were not found for months. After everything was set in place that is. They said that the votes were not right because they had been in the river and such.
Said I'm over limit on characters so I'll follow with part 2
