Monkeyfark Ridiculous: silvervial: So why don't a bunch of libbies join up? If nothing else, you'll water down the evil.

It's homeopathic evil. The more decent people who go along with it in hopes of diluting it, the worse the effects become.


Did D&D update the alignment matrix?

Atlas Aegis is not licensed to provide security in Minnesota, according to Richard Hodsdon, chairman of the Minnesota Board of Private Detective and Protective Agent Services, a state regulatory board. Hodsdon said that Atlas Aegis told the board this month that it was recruiting on behalf of a licensed company in Minnesota, but he said that it declined to provide a name to the board.


I don't think that "don't worry about it, I know a guy with a license" is a valid response to a licensing board asking to see your license.

Homeopathic evil and vegetarian good.

I guess a hag is a kind of homeopathic evil after all.

Need a better name. Like a flab of Trump supporters. Or maybe a hunger, a whine, or a lump.

I'm partial to a flab. But a waddle does allow for "Twaddle from a waddle Trumps".

I do think it's pretty likely the recruiting is for security places to scare city business owners about Election Day unrest/rioting so they hire security for their stores/property ahead of time and pay up-front, etc.

Which'll actually be kinda funny when nothing happens and/or Biden wins.

I humbly submit "a taint".  It's a nasty body part, but also a word for dirtying or besmirching which is exactly what a taint of Trumpanzies would do.

I liked that detail as well. I couldn't determine from the article if Atlas Aegiswebsite wasn't only a website, P.O. Box, and telephone number. Did its representative speak broken English?

The Contact tab: "There are risks and costs to action. But they are far less than the long range risks of inaction."
- John F. Kennedy

The address is a commercial office box-complex I recognize in Franklin. Franklin's old money. Not as old as Belle Meade, and there's plenty of cross-over, but I don't recall any synagogues in Franklin.

So, it's real.

"the party has signed up more than 3,000 volunteers statewide to help with such efforts and have been training volunteers on the state's election laws."

....which should teach them quickly that what the GOP has in mind is completely illegal.

Orallo: GregInIndy: My prediction nationwide is we'll see a few truly-comical Meal Team 6 style attempts to "patrol" voting locations that're easily made to GTFO by local police, along with the standard few solo morons trying some random voter intimidation.

Buncha li'l easily-scared wannabe tough guys that're quickly scattered off or picked up by the local cops.

My spouse is volunteering at the polls this year. Be kind, it's a long friggin' day.

I hope that's how it turns out, I really do hope it doesn't escalate any further than that.

I also hope all this clowns get arrested and charged with voter suppression (a federal crime).


It seems to me, that Ellison has enugh from their social media posts t open an investigation for conspiracy to violate election laws and subpoena the records fo every company involved in this and find the answer to the most interesting question about this mess:  Who is paying for this?

It totally works when the cops pull you over and ask to see your drivers license.

-- No security company in their right mind is going to take an assignment from anyone having anything to do with Trump, knowing what a notorious deadbeat he is, and the lingering stink it would bring upon their company long after the election.

-- Anyone wanting to do this sort of job for free is the exact type of trigger-happy nimrod that voter intimidation laws were created for to keep away from the polls!

Except most cops are MAGAts. Watch as they turn a blind eye to voter intimidation or actively participate in it.

Because 12 people showing up at the voting site looks worse than 6.

You know what else is homeopathic evil?

Homeopathy.


It's mostly duluted water.


It's water which has been influenced by being near the toxin.
It's deluded water.

They do have good food and there are slightly fewer nazis than St. Louis and a much less smug attitude than Chicago.


Friend I'm sure it's wonderful for a thousand reasons that I could look you in the eye and totally agree with and fall in love with.

Snow on the ground in mid October? Call a moving truck.

Violence is abhorrent.  Carry some pepper spray instead.

It's when someone surprises a bully by fighting back. In the case of Lee Keltner, with fatal consequences.
