Barr suggests charging protesters with sedition but blatant voter intimidation is encouraged. Ain't no freedom like Republican freedom.

strapp3r: for those of you who are unfortunate enough to have to stand in line and/or vote in-person, PLEASE RECORD THE SUSPICIOUS BEHAVIORS.
get others to also record to create a better record.
stories are just stories.
documented evidence and patterns could prove vital in vote counts/re-counts.


Faces and license plate numbers. It's sooooo great to see these guys whining on camera later after they get fired.

spark plugs are cheap.

A chunk of brick is cheaper still.

Don't really have any plausible deniability if you're chucking bricks at vehicles.


An absurdly small chunk of spark plug ceramic will shatter plate glass and looks an awful lot like road debris.

Not that I'm suggesting anything.

Thoughts I never needed in my head as an already nervous traveller. 0_0

ninja rocks. Plenty of youtube vids.

Used to keep them in my gear bag for extrication. Faster and cleaner than using a halligan and no risk of overpenetration or it bouncing back at you.

Had a rookie cop get all excited to use his asp to take a window when our old captain just sidearmed one past him and shattered it all.


I... I, wow, good lord am I slow. we been talkin' 'bout what ceramics can do to glass, and, yeah, for the last week our cats have been spinning up Mike Sullivan on the Alexa (I don't know how they do it they are just dicks they are cats, ok?)

So, it never occurs to them the alte kockers who can't hear the announcements are probably Trumpians who will screw up their vote for Hair Furor? Once again, not well thought out since liberals, wanting to avoid contagion & killing off their kin, are probably voting by mail: A) not there & 2) yesterday.

Trumpers believe that they should only vote on Nov 3rd and vote in person, just as Cheeto Jeebus commanded. Voting any other way is just blasphemous Soros shenanigans where all those mail-in ballots will be burned in a YUGE bonfire on the White House lawn as Trump basks in his victory on the balcony above.

America and her institutions...they hates it. The flag, the accoutrements, the swag, and the rep, those they love, but actually living up to the promise, that's hard, and someone should just make that happen so they don't have to do anything.

Gubbo: cretinbob: Don't dare call them deplorable

The problem was that clinton only called half of them deplorable. She was clearly wrong with that percentage


Clinton called them a "basket of deplorables" which makes them seem cute cuddly and so precious.

They aren't so the people who understand persuasion understood this was a fark up. The ones looking to sink hillary latched onto this and how horrible she would call them deplorable......... I'm not wasting my time again.

Just remember when Hillary called Donald and Company , "Dark," it stuck the opposition didn't say to much about that for a bit because it worked.

sirrerun: Some rando on Twitter says so, with no details; who, what, where, how -- you know -- old-time journalism, so I guess I should believe it. And I want to.

Just looking for some higher standards on this site besides Twitter links all the time.


Twitter won't let you post it if it isn't true.

I think of this as them encouraging people to save them from themselves.

Honk honk, *please do what we can't and elect an adult to the White House*.

Still not as desperate as that lunatic fringe who have taken to posting their Trump nonsense on LinkedIn.
 
2020-10-25 8:17:23 AM  
I don't put it past people to do this - my sister has pics of something similar in PA, tho not at a polling station - but from the comments, there's no cell phone footage so far, which strikes me as... Odd. Or apparently, noise ordinance complaints? It was a residential neighborhood.

Initial thoughts is this did not go on for 2 hours. Not that it matters - 2 minutes is too farking much.

Original: Original Tweet:

alexoimas: Then the next Semi followed, then the 3rd. A motorcade of Semis, jeeps, and a few sedans drove down the road. All honking. All flying Trump 2020 flags. With people yelling out the window. This motorcade snaked around the polling place the entire time I was there (2 hrs) 3/5


Can they not be arrested for disturbing the peace?

One can interfere with voters receiving instructions in Red districts by putting them in writing.

tintar: dr_blasto: they should be arrested, vehicles impounded

there's no way they could avoid being grounded? /[iseewhatyoudidthere.jpg]

farkers of Philadelphia, you have 3 more days to vote early. if you haven't already applied for a mail ballot, they will print one for you. if your mail ballot hasn't arrived in the mail yet, they will print one for you.

Make sure everyone you know who requested a mail in ballot, who change their mind and go to vote in person, that they MUST take their mail in ballot with them & BOTH envelopes, and turn them in or they won't be allowed to vote at their polling station.

The mail in ballot must be invalidated before you will be allowed in the voting booth.

FarkingSmurf: phlegmjay: FarkingSmurf: While waiting in line at my polling site some old lady got confused after voting and walked out the fire exit.  So everybody got to listen to the fire alarm for ten minutes while they figured out how to turn it off.  I did not notice a slowing off the line.


/not buying this guy's story

Wait... did we vote at the same place at the same time?

If you voted on Wed. 10/14 at a public library in Georgia around noon then yes.


Okay. We did not vote at the same place at the same time. We just had a remarkably similar experience.

tintar: phalamir: thorpe: Badmoodman: Pretty sure that's voter intimidation.

I'm not sure it's intimidation so much as election interference.

Yet, but what are you going to do?  Call the cops and have them start killing the people trying to vote?

what color are the people though it only works one way


Oh, the Klazis were quite happy to kill [racial slur]-loving race-traitors that showed up with the Freedom Riders.  So, the NYPD gunning down white Democrats is simply a normal part of their culture and heritage.

good lord does that program really angery up my blood. but then, every time, a farkload of shoggoths rush in 3-5 minutes later and start murdering the absolute fark out of the racists. that part never gets old, and I feel so much better after that.

I've been tempted to re-watch from the very beginning, simply to better understand the screenplay writers' take on the mythos, but then I remember that one earlier scene about sundown/sunset laws/town and, just... can't. seriously on the side of the monsters in this version.

oh, lawd. when you wrote that it started tugging on my tiny mind. so, here's an oldie from Cape Cod.

thank you, that's a very important distinction!

suebhoney:

the state of PA had said, if you had applied for a mail ballot, but didn't receive it by 10/6, they would simply print a new one - but that was only for the early voting, I believe. otherwise when they try to reconcile from the voter rolls, normally you'd only be allowed to mark a provisional ballot, but now color me 100% clueless.

PA registrations closed on 10/19. Philadelphia early-voting closes Tuesday 10/27.

farking go vote, PA+Phila farkers <3 <3 <3 if we weren't living in a plague-era, I would invite all of youse (to use my wife's philly vernacular, lol) over to 3monkeys or Maggie's or the Ashburner, and stand you as many rounds as humanely possible. or humanly possible. whichever comes first.
