Sarah Jessica Farker: Unbridled Apathy: Sarah Jessica Farker: I'VE GOT IT!!

They can't nominate a new person and get them in for the judgment on the election.

What they have to do is CHOOSE ONE CONSERVATIVE JUSTICE and force them OUT of the decision. Recusal, whatever. Just make sure that it's 7 justices and because RBG was liberal, it's a conservative who has to sit this one out.

That is a direct violation of voting laws.

If it is a polling place, no political signs should be visible

In Texas, all political signage must be a minimum of 150 linear feet from the entrance to the polling place.  The term "Entrance to the polling place" in locations where the polling station is located within another building can be interpreted as either the outer doors of the building or the inner doors of the actual polling station.

Texas: randomly interpretation of the law to fit rich white power needs since the Alamo.

Ya all remember the Alamo?

Ya know, I see enough crap around this site about how all Texans are idiots.  To see the implication that all Texans are white power supporters in THIS thread, when y'all know that several Maddites live in or hail from Texas is a bit more than I can abide.

I lurked here for years and have read the Maddite thread for a long time, but never felt like I had anything to add. However, this news has put the piss puddle on my shiat sandwich. I was laid off today and am unemployed for the first time in my adult life, then I get home to hear this news. I know Moscow Mitch will have nominee hearings before Ginsburg is even in the ground and we are well and truly boned!

What's your favorite deli meat?

Pastrami but I have to be careful how much of it I eat.


Someone else already has pastrami, you'll have to pick something else.

Can I interest you in a nice olive loaf? All the good choices have already been taken by people that didn't lurk. I was lucky and got in early and secured roast beef for myself.

But yeah, pastrami was one of the first ones to go. Last lurker got stuck with liver and onion on pumpernickel. Poor bastard.

If you can't login with a brand new account there is no way to be sure your seaech results aren't influenced by SEO, or some other AI profile tracking evil.

I'm certainly no expert, but AFIK public use networks like yours load the OS each time a new user logs on as a security measure against malware infection.  You can easily check this before signing on vs. after.

As far as the "dumb hillbilly" thing goes, they aren't all dumb. They're single-issue voters who come in all shapes and size: gun nuts, racists, small businesses owners who want environmental protecions abolished, etc. The dumbasses don't matter, as they probably can't figure out how to vote anyway.

BDR459: Sarah Jessica Farker: BDR459: Sarah Jessica Farker: "Keep your powder dry" -- I knew that was a gunpowder reference deep in my bones ;)

In honor of death, and of my weed being packed on dad's birthday, I'm going to re-post his obit:

[Fark user image image 850x1380]

And yes, my given name is 'Ruth'...

Last or first name is Ruth?

First.

I knew a guy in my college dorms whose last name was Ruth and we joked about not getting married.

So, data miners be damned, I'm sure they already know, my maiden name is the same as my father's in the obit. The name I crossed out may or may not have been my married name, or my middle and maiden name, or my middle and married name ;)

My brother Paul still lives across town. We moved from SF to Sunnyvale not long after dad passed. Brother Doug lives in a totally different state. My mother, Alice, passed away a bit over three years ago. I forget which year exactly it was that Aunt Florence passed, but I was able to inherit all of her Eastern Star jewelry.

Eastern Star jewelry.

What?

and i had to look up "keep your powder dry." figured it was related to boxing, but teh google says it's referring to gun powder.

In this case it refers to McConnell telling his members not to react too soon -- don't stake out their position before the media's take (read: Fox News spin job) has a chance to settle in and they can gauge public sentiment on his continued hypocritical shenanigans. If they see that his convoluted argument about the Biden rule plus it's okay when the Senate and WH are held by the same party is getting traction, go with announcing support for a vote before the election.

In other words, it's a dumb farking translation for backwoods, hillbilly thinking.

Was going to post this one tomorrow when I expect the second sim card to arrive and I can post with the phone instead of having to transfer and post via the PC and running the noisy generator. But since this is a terrible, no good, very bad day, I thought I should do it tonight.

Also, the power bank I bought less than six weeks ago died overnight. So I'm down to using the generator and/or van battery for device charging. One big improvement is the new phone will charge from zero to 100% in 20 minutes using the fast charger that came with it, rather than the four hours the old phone took.

Don't know if I'll buy another power bank, as I expected a lot more use out the last one. Hate to waste money on crap. I'll need to do a lot more research to determine if I was doing something wrong.

Good evening Maddites.
