Not only has Trump sought to spread FUD about our upcoming election and the inevitable increase in voting by mail using his tweets, he has also grafted gifted rewarded captured the Postal Service by installing one of his mega donors as the Postmaster General (such a swamp move, the PMG's wife was named the Ambassador to Canada--poor Canada). This new PMG has declared that in order to be more like a business and less like a government service, *no overtime will be paid*. When the whistle blows, drop the mail where you stand. It'll be there tomorrow.


What's this got to do with voting?

Quote:
Thirty-five states now either allow no-excuse absentee voting or vote entirely by mail, and during this pandemic, more people than ever will choose to avoid polling places and cast their ballot that way. That already means that the Postal Service will have to handle more absentee requests and ballots than ever before — and Trump’s postmaster general has forbidden its workers from working overtime.

Now here’s the kicker. In 34 states, under current law it’s not enough that your absentee ballot be postmarked by election day. It has to be received by election authorities by election day.
As I pointed out earlier in this thread, it's possible to verify your options for voting by mail *NOW* and the sooner the better. Vote. Please vote. To make it count, you have to follow some rules and the sooner the better.

Speaking of elections, Pete's signs were stolen off our property today.

Ok, that's out of the way for the next thirty seconds....

I'm getting ready to watch the VP debate. New thing this year, well, not a new thing, but people are NAMING it, "managing expectations", whooooo that's fun.


my anti-expectation-managing, or managing expectations against my own self interest , whatev, I'm new at this don't hate at me. I think Kamala Harris will crush that talking point machine.

WHO'S WITH ME NOW?

Go Kamala!

I got the phrase "talking points machine" from "teh media" but I have to say, ON POINT, media, well done.

jfc.

He's sideslipped answering the actual question, run out the clock not answering, dodging and weaving like a mofo... props. props, yo.

your answers say a lot, despite addressing questions not asked by the moderator.

side note, stop talking over Senator Harris. It really is rude and makes you look like a prick.

So Pence was anointed - by fly shit. Appropriate?

Or was that a fly trying to tell him his time was up. He listens to no one - except Trump. Or does he?

He wasn't in the room when Trump was spreading his viral wisdom upon all others.
