Trump wins DC with 80% of the vote, while many precincts report negative vote totals for Biden. If the Supreme Court agrees with, you know, everyone, that there was massive interference and gives DC to the Dems, there is a 269-269 tie. In any case, the city burns.

At 36, my best friend in the Navy married a woman 8 years his senior. She'd a son 8 years younger than her new husband (she had her son when she was 16). Her son had two daughters and a step-daughter from his wife's first marriage (the son's wife's daughter was 17). By the time my friend was ready to retire from the Navy at 40, his step-son's step-daughter gave him a double-step-great-grandson.

Irony: my friend is gay & it was a marriage of convenience because, since it was then illegal for a gay man to serve his country, he needed a beard and married the mother of another friend, a shipmate of ours, & she needed to finish her degree & medical care. Additionally, his wife had 3 additional daughters, all mothers, so he had a total of four step-children, 9 step-grandchildren & 1 double-step granddaughter, and 1 something-step (triple or double, I dunno) great-grandchild.

This was in 1992. They never divorced, she passed away from lung cancer (2010) and he married his husband in 2012 with his kids, grandkids & great-grandchild by his first marriage there. They live in his late wife's house, a 3 flat, with two of his step-daughter in the other flats.

On the first date, talking about themselves, he told future husband he thought the date was going really well & he invited him to come back to his house for the night, "but my grandson & his wife & sons are camping in the guest room for a few days while their apartment is being repaired because of water damage." His date stopped, looked at him while he put that sentence together and asked, "Wait. What? You have great-grandchildren? How the fark old are you?"  (Answer: 55.) God bless 'em, that family works.

What I find most amazing is: his youngest step-daughter's ex-husband, after the divorce, stayed in the spare room and never left so he could still help care for his two kids, living in his ex-stepmother's apartment (since her gay husband mostly lived elsewhere and obviously it was not a traditional marriage). When his ex-step-mother died, and gay husband inherited the house, he stayed on and has never moved out.

In the dining room they have a family tree of photos on the wall. It's a beautiful wall.

It's not interested in legitimate media, or it would have seen dozens of articles and news blurbs over the past six months showing AOC and Bernie Sanders saying, singing, and yelling to freaking vote for Biden.

It's here with gotcha questions that will elicit words from responders so that it can then do a Gish gallop from a script and dazzle us with bogus facts and statistics. That's all.


So much for a sincere question. I follow "legitimate" media all the time, and last I heard of Sanders was his complaining about Biden a few weeks (months? Covid time... who knows) ago. Thanks to a few folks here that aren't just puking insults I got an answer.
