Review of Dominion Voting Machines from a Technical Perspective



Being part of a democracy means voting.  We love to vote for everything.  We love to vote for the important stuff, like the President of the United States.  We love to vote for the fun stuff: Intertops Casino Red, Intertops Casino Blue, or Intertops Casino White.  Voting and the United States go hand in hand.  It is in our blood.

The Dominion voting machines during the 2020 election put that part of American life in question.  So the question is, “Should we be afraid of Dominion voting machines or is this simply a situation of ‘old fogies’ not willing to accept modern technology?”

What was voting like before Dominion and why did it need to change?

Before Dominion, many states were using old lever pull voting machines or they were using punch cards.  In terms of not being able to “change a vote”, both methods were excellent.  But, with the lever pulled machines, it became an issue of the American’s Disabilities Act.  For older people and people with disabilities, it was difficult to physically cast a ballot.  With the punch cards, it was difficult for people with visual and physical issues to cast a vote, and if it was done incorrectly, their vote was not counted.

Is Dominion the only solution?

No.  Many states, for example Connecticut, switched to a “fill in the bubble” method of voting, and standard scanning machines to read the ballot.  Simple, straight forward, and absolutely no ability for anybody to be able to get into the voting machines to change votes.  Not to mention each person had a physical ballot that they could physically see before putting it into the scanner to ensure that the vote they think they are casting is the one that is actually being cast.

If a person filled in the wrong ballot, they could bring it up to a clerk, ask for a new ballot, their old ballot would be voided, and they would get a new ballot.

Which states are using Dominion voting machines?

Dominion voting machines were in Washington, California, Nevada, Arizona, Utah, Colorado, New Mexico, Texas, Kansas, Louisiana, Georgia, Florida, Tennessee, Virginia, Illinois, Iowa, Michigan, Wisconsin, Ohio, Pennsylvania, New York, Vermont, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Missouri, Minnesota, and New Jersey.

What is wrong with the Dominion voting machines?

What do we expect from a voting machine?

  1. Not connected to an intranet, because that can then be connected to the internet.
  2. Confidence that the ballot you cast is the one that is going to be counted.
  3. Confidence that the ballot machines can be validated by a third party outside company.
  4. Confidence that the voting machine is doing only what it is supposed to be doing and nothing more and nothing less.

There are two different types of ballots with Dominion machines.

Dominion claims on their brochure, “Streamline programming and only proof one database for paper and DRE ballots”.

People who vote by mail are given a paper ballot that looks and acts the same way as voting is done in states like Connecticut.  They are given a fill in the bubble ballot, and the ballot is scanned after the voter can physically see that the ballot that is being counted is the one they are casting.

With voting in person, you use a DRE ballot. DRE stands for Direct Record Electronic.  In other words, you press a button on the screen and the voter has zero knowledge if the ballot they cast is the one that is actually being read.

But wait, they say that there is a paper trail.

Look at the ballot that is stored in the database.  One, the user never sees this ballot, so they have no ability to confirm or not confirm that the ballot they are casting is the one being counted.  Second, the DRE ballot is not a bubble filled in ballot (that was filled in by a computer).  It is a completely different ballot.  The DRE ballot just prints out who you voted for and a QR code.

But it is not the printed text that the Dominion machines are reading and counting.  It is the QR code.

There are two major problems here.  The first is that somebody can just by looking at the ballot which ballots were mail in ballots and which ballots were in person ballots.  Once the ballot has been submitted, you should not be able to tell that by the physical ballot.

Second, a QR code cannot be read by hand by humans.  In other words, it is 100% impossible to validate that what is being read by the computer is the same data that is being read by a physical human being.  I can count a bag of apples, and you can count a bag of oranges, and just because we get the same number does not mean that next time I count a bag of apples and you count a bag of oranges that we are doing to get the same number.  As long as we are both counting two different sets of data, it means nothing.

Dominion Mobile Ballot Printing

On the one hand it sounds “Great”.  You can print your ballot from anywhere, from any device, including websites and the internet.  The downside, you can print ballots from any device, including websites and the internet.  Can anyone say “fraud alert”!

Dominion ImageCast Remote

Yes, it is exactly what you think it is.  Remote means that you are “casting” a ballot in a location that is NOT local. The software is designed to allow you to cast a vote in a location that is not local to the physical voting machine.

If you honestly believe that is not going to lead to fraud, can I sell you the Brooklyn Bridge?

“The ImageCast Remote software platform utilizes N-Tier (or multitier) software architecture.”  In layman’s terms, it requires at a minimum, an intranet (computers locally connected together.  So each voting system is not separate and independent, as we were promised.  If any computer on the intranet that is connected to the internet, and all computers are connected to the internet.

Plus, since in a client-server system it is designed to only have one database, even if the individual voting machines are not connected to the internet, if the main server computer is connected to the internet, you have lost your chain of evidence.

“The system supports WCAG 2.0 Level AA conformance, multiple languages, browser-based screen readers and Audio-Tactile Interfaces (ATI). The ImageCast Remote uses standard HTML and JavaScript and is compatible with Microsoft Explorer, Firefox, Safari, and Chrome.”

“Voters can use the system on their personal computer, tablet, smartphone, or touchtone phone. After the voter has marked their ballot, the system generates a PDF of an ‘Electronic Mobile Ballot,’ which is a representation of the voter’s summary ballot, containing a human readable summary of the voter’s selections and a 2D QR code, which is not human readable and allows the ballot to be scanned by a Dominion ImageCast ballot scanner instead of being remade onto traditional ballot paper by hand or with a ballot duplication system. The Electronic Mobile Ballot can have more than one QR code, containing the number of available contests, candidates, and write-ins.”

The Dominion software is DESIGNED to allow anybody with a mobile phone to be able to “cast a vote”.  On top of that, they specifically tell you that when they print out your voting summary, what you are reading is NOT what is being counted.  Just because your ballot says, “You voted for Mickey Mouse”, if the QR code says that you voted for “Donald Duck”, you voted for “Donald Duck”, and there is nothing you can do about it.

And human manual count validation?  How is a human going to count QR codes?  It is not physically possible, because humans do not know how to read QR codes by hand.

Tallying is done from a central database

“Track incoming results from all channels from a single database”

The only way that you can track all channels from a single database is if those databases are all connected.  It does not say anywhere about the single database having to be physically located at the voting location.  In fact, the image on their brochure specifically shows an image that says “Precincts reporting: 33 of 33 100%”.   It is physically impossible to “read” the data from 33 different precincts automatically in “realtime”, from 33 physically different locations, unless that data is being transmitted through the internet.

Once you are transmitting data through the internet, there is zero guarantee that the data has not been changed.  The data that was sent from location A is the same data was submitted to location B.

Is Dominion’s Database just showing the data?

When an audit was done in Arizona, one of the states that used Dominion voting machines in 2020, they ran into a snag.  The central database was deleted, and there were no backups.

With a system this important, there should have been a real time backup database and  a hard backup of the data at the end of the day on a DVD, something that could not be changed, ever.  That did not happen.  Not to mention that the physical boxes where the ballots were stored had their seals broken.

The auditors asked Dominion for the root passwords, so they could audit the database to prove without a doubt that the data sent from location A was the same data that was stored in the database in location B.

Dominion’s response was, “company secrets are contained in the database, so we cannot release the database.”  The database is only supposed to count ballots and report on the total.  If it is doing anything beyond that, it is doing something that it is not supposed to be doing.

Dominion did not say, “You have to get the passwords from Arizona.”


Dominion admitted that they are the only ones who have access to the central voting database.  A database that was deleted.  On top of that, Dominion admitted that they do not want their database validated.  And the seals being broken on the ballot boxes?

Deleting a voting database is fraud.  Breaking seals on ballot boxes is fraud.

Any state that used Dominion voting machines cannot be trusted.  Provable fraud in one location means that any location that used that system had the potential for fraud.

28 states used the Dominion voting system.  That is more than half of the country.  In other words, over 50% of the votes cast in the 2020 election cannot be trusted.

Nobody is going to approve any voting system unless the Democrats get the system validated by their people, and the Republicans get it validated by their people.  And on top that, it is validated by a third group that both people agree to validate the system.

All You Need to Know About the Crypto Tax Calculator



Crypto Tax Calculator


Cryptocurrency taxes can confuse many people, especially those new to crypto. With so many cryptocurrencies available and the value constantly fluctuating, it can take time to calculate the exact amount of taxes owed. This is where the crypto tax calculator comes into play. In this blog post, we will explore what a crypto tax calculator is, how it works, and why it is essential for cryptocurrency investors.


What is a Crypto Tax Calculator?

A crypto tax calculator is designed to help cryptocurrency investors accurately calculate their tax liabilities. It analyzes the transactions on various cryptocurrency exchanges and summarizes the taxes owed. These calculators typically utilize an Application Programming Interface (API) to retrieve transaction data from cryptocurrency exchanges, including the date of purchase, the amount spent, the price of the cryptocurrency at the time of purchase, and the date of sale. Once this data is collected, the calculator calculates the tax liability.


How Does a Crypto Tax Calculator Work?

Crypto tax calculators work by taking all of the data collected from the API and processing it through a complex algorithm. The algorithm considers various factors, such as each cryptocurrency’s purchase price, sale price, and holding period. The tax calculator then uses this data to calculate each transaction’s capital gains or losses.

Capital gains are the profit made when selling a cryptocurrency for more than it was purchased for, while capital losses occur when selling a cryptocurrency for less than it was purchased for. Once the calculator has calculated the capital gains or losses for each transaction, it then calculates the total tax liability for the investor based on their tax bracket and the tax laws in their country.


Why is a Crypto Tax Calculator Essential?

Crypto tax calculators are essential for several reasons:

  • Accuracy

Calculating cryptocurrency taxes can be highly complicated, especially for those who have made numerous trades. A crypto tax calculator eliminates the possibility of human error, ensuring that the tax liability is calculated accurately.

  • Time-Saving

Calculating taxes manually can be a time-consuming process. A crypto tax calculator simplifies the process and saves investors time by automatically generating a tax report.

  • Cost-Effective

Hiring a tax professional to calculate your crypto taxes can be costly. A crypto tax calculator eliminates the need for a tax professional, saving investors money.

  • Compliance

Using a crypto tax calculator, investors can ensure that they comply with tax laws in their country. Failure to comply with tax laws can result in penalties and fines.

How to Choose the Right Crypto Tax Calculator


Choosing the right crypto tax calculator can be overwhelming, given the many options available. Here are some factors to consider when selecting a crypto tax calculator:

  • Accuracy

Accuracy is the most crucial factor when choosing a crypto tax calculator. Ensure that your calculator is accurate and current with the latest tax laws.

  • User-Friendly

A user-friendly interface is essential when choosing a crypto tax calculator. The software should be easy to navigate, and the instructions should be clear and concise.

  • Integration

Ensure that the crypto tax calculator you choose can integrate with the cryptocurrency exchanges you use. The more exchanges the calculator supports, the better.

  • Customer Support

Choose a crypto tax calculator that offers excellent customer support. The support team should be easily accessible and able to answer any questions you have.


A crypto tax calculator is an essential tool for cryptocurrency investors. It simplifies calculating taxes and helps investors comply with tax laws. Using a crypto tax calculator, investors can take control of their tax liabilities and make informed decisions about their cryptocurrency investments.

A Guide to Spring Cleaning Your Financial Paperwork



financial paperwork

If the spring-cleaning bug has bit you, you won’t stop at just washing your windows and cleaning under the fridge. Your job isn’t done until you can bring order to all areas of your life, including your financial house.

Even though online banking makes it possible to manage money virtually, the average person still collects a lot of snail mail over the year.

While throwing all that paperwork out may be tempting, this idea could cause problems in the future. You’re meant to keep certain financial documents — look below to see how long.

Personal Loan Contracts

Any time you borrow a personal loan or line of credit, you have to sign a loan agreement. This contract contains all the black-and-white details of your account, so you know what to expect when borrowing a line of credit or personal loan. Most importantly, it outlines your terms, payment schedule, and cost of borrowing.

While some traditional loans may mail you a paper contract, online lenders might send you an e-document. You should keep it in a safe place — whether it’s paper or digital. It should join any supporting documents or proof of payments for at least the lifetime of the loan.


You can safely get rid of phone and utility bills after one month. After all, most utility providers set you up with an online account where you can review digital copies of these bills.

The only exception is if you plan on using any of these bills for tax-related purposes. In that case, refer to the section on taxes for how long you should keep them.

Financial Statements

If our bank, credit card company, or lender still mails your monthly statements, financial advisors recommend you keep them for 12 months. Once again, you might have to keep them longer if you plan on using them as supporting tax documents.


Do you always say “yes” when the cashier asks if you want your receipt? Your wallet is probably bursting with receipts collected over the year.

The good news is that you can safely clear out most of them. There are only three times you should file away your receipts for safekeeping.

  1. It’s for a major purchase, like a new appliance, vehicle, or device. You may need to show this in case you need to return it or activate its warranty.
  2. It’s for household services or work done to your house, including renovations and repairs.
  3. You made a purchase you plan on writing off.

Insurance Documents

You should keep your auto, health, and life insurance documents until your policy expires, or you purchase a new package.


Tax time is stressful enough without having to fight against disorganized and missing paperwork, so pay particular attention to your returns this spring.

According to the Canadian Revenue Agency (CRA), you should keep your supporting documents for six years. However, some advisors recommend you keep all your tax documents indefinitely in case of errors. You should also retain copies of your returns, notices of assessment, and notices of reassessment.

Handle Your Finances with Care

Once you go through all your paperwork, you’ll be left with two piles: the paperwork to keep and discard. When it comes to the stuff you want to toss, make sure you shred it first so that no personal information may be exposed. As for the stuff you want to keep, look for a filing system that works for you. Choose a safe, dry place where you won’t lose things.

Benefits of Onboarding Military Veterans: Qualities That Make Them Excellent Employees



Onboarding Military

Hiring military veterans boosts your company’s recruitment and retention programs. Many people enlist in the military right out of high school or college. After years of military service, their civilian employment experiences may not correlate to your current job requirements. Don’t overlook the numerous benefits that hiring a veteran can bring to your organization. Here are some qualities you will likely hire when you onboard a military veteran.


Most military veterans want to work when they return to civilian life. They have dedicated their lives to service and are motivated to improve the world after they retire. An applicant may provide you with their military experience and free employment verification for Uber drivers report. This shows employers that the candidates have been actively working.


Veterans learn a significant amount of discipline in the military. They learn early on to listen to their leaders and follow directions when given. In addition, veterans are masters of self-discipline. They understand that meeting regulations gives them growth opportunities. You can trust that veterans are efficient and have the discipline to complete tasks as assigned. When those skills are observed by their peers, your entire staff often learns that self-discipline.


Honesty and integrity are instilled into a servicemember. They learn early on that their word is valuable. In addition, veterans will report perceived infractions of their colleagues through proper management channels. This integrity protects your company’s confidential business information. Peers learn to recognize that their co-worker is trustworthy and sincere.

Organizational Skills

While you may need to provide training on various job-related skills, your new hire will have excellent organizational skills. They are typically excellent project managers. They understand how to break a project down into individual processes and how to assign those tasks to appropriate team members. They are also familiar with the post-project analysis.


Due to the global nature of their military service, veterans work well with all individuals regardless of their ethnic background, religious preference, or gender. They encourage unity between colleagues of different physical or mental capabilities. Veterans serve as dynamic leaders, embracing diversification and inclusion in the workforce.

Financial Benefits

In addition to the soft skills that military veterans bring to your workforce, there are many financial advantages to recruiting these individuals. The Department of Labor has a comprehensive list of programs that help you offset the costs of onboarding a veteran. Your local Small Business Administration chapter can also help you find resources for your business. If you operate as a veteran-owned small business, SBA can help you obtain funding.

Other Considerations

The benefits of recruiting military veterans outweigh the few challenges you may experience. Some candidates may have difficulty transitioning into the civilian workforce. A mentoring program can give your employees a point of contact to answer questions or discuss their experiences. In addition, some applicants may have physical or mental disabilities that require accommodations. While you may not ask specifically about these injuries, you can inquire about accommodations. The Americans with Disabilities Act protects applicants and employees from discrimination.

Creating a sound veteran recruitment strategy is important for businesses of all sizes. By actively onboarding these individuals, you will experience significant growth opportunities for your business.

5 Tips for Finding the Perfect Office Space for Your Business




As a business owner, finding the perfect office space is a crucial step in creating a productive and efficient work environment. Your office space can affect the morale and productivity of your employees, as well as the image and reputation of your business. Here are five tips for finding the perfect office space in The Square for your business:

Determine Your Needs

Before starting your search for office space, you must determine your business’s specific needs. Consider the number of employees you have and the size of the office space needed to accommodate them comfortably. Also, think about your budgets and the amenities your business requires, such as a conference room, a break room, or a reception area.

Knowing your needs beforehand will help you narrow down your search and avoid wasting time and resources on office spaces that are not suitable for your business.

Location Matters

The location of your office space can significantly impact your business’s success. Choose a location that is easily accessible for both your employees and clients. Consider the proximity to public transportation, parking availability, and nearby amenities, such as restaurants and shops.

Additionally, think about the neighbourhood’s safety, reputation, and the image it portrays. A prestigious location can enhance your business’s reputation, but it may come with a higher price tag.

Consider Your Budget

Your budget is a crucial factor in finding the perfect office space. Determine how much you can afford to spend on rent and other expenses, such as utilities and maintenance. Remember to leave some wiggle room in your budget in case of unexpected expenses.

Consider the cost of leasing versus buying an office space. Leasing provides more flexibility, while buying gives you more control over the space and can be a good long-term investment. However, buying an office space requires a significant upfront investment and comes with additional responsibilities, such as property maintenance.

Think About Future Growth

When choosing an office space, think about your business’s future growth. Consider whether the office space can accommodate additional employees and equipment if needed. Look for a space that can be easily modified to suit your changing business needs.

Also, consider the length of the lease agreement. A short-term lease may be ideal if you anticipate growth or need the flexibility to move to a different location. A long-term lease may be better if you want to lock in a favourable rental rate or have a stable business model.

Get Expert Advice

Finding the perfect office space can be a daunting task, especially if you’re a first-time business owner. Consider getting expert advice from a real estate agent or a property management company. These professionals can help you navigate the rental market, negotiate lease terms, and find office spaces that meet your needs and budget.

Before hiring an expert, make sure to do your research and ask for references. Choose someone who has experience working with businesses similar to yours and who understands your specific needs and goals.

Visit the Space in Person

Once you’ve narrowed down your search, visit the office space in person. This will give you a better sense of the space’s size, layout, and condition. Check for any signs of damage or wear and tear that may need to be repaired before moving in.

Also, consider the office’s natural lighting, ventilation, and acoustics. These factors can affect your employees’ productivity and comfort level.


Finding the perfect office space for your business can be a challenging and time-consuming task, but it’s worth the effort. By determining your needs, considering the location, budget, and future growth, and getting expert advice, you can find an office space that meets your business’s specific requirements.

Remember, your office space in The Square Texas Tower is more than just a place to work. It’s a reflection of your business’s culture, values, and professionalism.

So take the time to find the perfect office space that aligns with your vision and goals, and create a productive and efficient work environment for your employees.
