Phony_Soldier: Langdon_777: jst3p: That money WILL need to be paid back

Oh he knows he will not be doing any of that, that is only for the poors to deal with.

I agree that money will be need to be paid back which is why I'm trying to secure a nice retirement. I'm not convinced social security will be there for me (maybe a minimal amount?) even if I live long enough to collect.


See it it comments like that that moved you from a (ignorant) green to a mid level red.  I do not think you quite understand how hard it is to get to a mid level red.

Picture this - all your neighbours are starving and homeless, and yours is the last house with food in it ... .

At that point which group would you like to belong to?

Oh and just to add flavour, all your neighbours have guns ... !

Okay, well most of my neighbors are Indian or Chinese Americans. They do pretty much the same thing I'm doing. I'm not worried about them starving or coming after me.

My Chinese American friend owns several houses in the Bay Area and most of the other people I know do well enough.

I think your description of what could happen is overly dramatic.

Bandito King: yukonexceptionialism: Trump has likely irreparably damaged his chances by attacking mail-in voting. Trump was the underdog during the last election and Americans love to cheer for an underdog. His campaign is running the same playbook but even his dumbest supporters know that Trump is not the underdog anymore. The closer to Election Day, the more chances his voters will decide he's a loser. Americans don't vote for losers. On Election Night, the Republican votes are just going to fizzle. I'm not expecting a huge shift to Democrats, rather the votes just won't be there. As it's been said many times before, if Trump loses you're going to find a lot of people who voted for him the first time, and no one who voted for him the second time.

You won't find many people who voted for him the first time in a decade or so. They will claim support for virtually anyone in 2016 except Hillary and now, Trump. They're shameless but they don't like being unpopular.


Just like Dumbya

I try to be centrist. Definitely agree with the left on global warming. I don't have an opinion on abortion. I'm for some gun control. I definitely want lower taxes or at least I don't want to see my taxes increased.

We did have record fires here in Northern California. I would really like to know how much of it is global warming related vs poor forestry management.

Once you are well off and comfortable, you should not be looking for some sort of impossible protection for life thing.  YOU SHOULD BE LOOKING OUT FOR THOSE WHO ARE WORSE OFF THAN YOU!!!

Because you never know.

Langdon_777: gunther_bumpass: Election day should be a national holiday. Not one of those jammed against a weekend so all the morons drag out their jet-skis holidays, but, mid-week (maybe a Tuesday). Absentee voting if you really need it. Enough polling places where anyone can vote in 10 minutes. (My own polling place, I've never even had to wait in a line. Not once in 25 years.)

The day was chosen so that land owners to get on their coach after Church on Sunday and still go vote.  It is gross.  The fact the most power democratic nation in the World has a one day election on a non-holiday Tuesday is because the only people the rule were written for were white male land owners.  No one else got a vote back then, no Black, no women, no poors.

AND YET YOU C*NTS HAVEN'T CHANGED ANY OF THE RULES SINCE THEN!!!!

I hate to be a pessimist - but like the donkey/elephant cartoon reminds us, not every broken thing can be fixed.
Some times you f**k up - and what you did can't be fixed.
2016 may have been our last shot at saving Democracy, and America - it could be too late.
Trump and the GOP have a headlock on America - and they may not let us up - they may just keep choking.
Everybody who failed to vote for the awful, distasteful Hillary may have to live with their failure forever.
Hope it was worth it to be cool.

Those are all the stop gaps people have put in since the white male land owners made there rules.  But let us be honest, most sensible democracies have their elections of a Saturday or Sunday so that most people can easily vote.  And the best ones make that day a holiday where very few have to work.

A week day, a Tuesday (I explained why above, damn those horses and few voting places,) a non-holiday Tuesday .... no wonder so many states have allowed for ways to vote early.

I was figuring that if there is a time when I could then maybe I should.  Most likely I will just drink waaay too many energy drinks and if worse comes to worse, a couple of 100mg caffeine tablets.

But meth might also help me clean my house, though more likely I will just play Civ for days.
 
2020-10-26 6:26:59 AM  
We're going to need every Democrat who has already voted to go to the polls on November 3rd, wait in line and when you get to the election official ask if your vote has been counted. Really hold up the line if they don't have the information ready at hand.

Lets see how Republicans like waiting in line 16 hours.
 
2020-10-26 6:28:59 AM  

Mrtraveler01: Keizer_Ghidorah: Th entire reason Moscow Mitch is rushing ACB into the SC is so they can contest and throw out the results of the election if Trump loses, claiming widespread rampant Democrat voter and election fraud. Buses of illegals with fake IDs being driven around the country, people putting multiple ballots in, Democrat ballot counters no throwing out all the fraudulent votes, etc. Trump and all of his sycophants and cult will bay for blood on November 4th, and the Supreme Court and his domestic terrorists will be happy to oblige.

Part of me thinks that will fire up Democrats even more.


If it doesn't inspire Democrats to direct physical violence it won't matter.

If Democrats are "fired up" to vote in 2022 after they directly steal an election who cares?

Well, the upside of pessimism is that it is just a view of a future that may not come true.
Maybe America will luck out, and get away with the stupidest, evilest thing we have ever done as a nation.
Maybe.
But if we don't, don't f**king blame Hillary - she stuck out her hand, and we knocked it away.

Serious question, and I'd like to hear your reply.

I'll add that my stocks have done well under Trump. My vote is strictly for financial reasons.

So racism, misogyny, us being a laughing stock on the world stage, kids being separated from their parents and now we can't find them and so much more is cool with you so long as you get a tax cut and your 401k improves?

The more likely people are to wait til Election Day the more likely they are to not vote at all.

Shiat happens. Things come up. They roll up and it looks like a giant hassle, or a multi-hour wait, so they leave. Work runs over that day. They just plain forget until they turn on the TV that evening. And lots of people aren't super-into politics, so they'll take a pass if it seems difficult or annoying or an all-day affair.

All of the above is why a big early voting advantage is fantastic and matters greatly. Make it happen.
 
2020-10-26 7:54:01 AM  
So, 25-30% of the voters are "new or infrequent voters" - voters who did not feel motivated to vote for Trump previously - or anyone, really. But all of a sudden, after 4 years, this surge in voters kicks into gear?? Yeah, they aren't there to re-affirm an incumbent POTUS😅
 
2020-10-26 8:01:04 AM  
When they go to vote, they know there will be working machines at their polling place.  There will be enough volunteers to speed them through and they assume there won't be any cops to check for warrants or pull them out of line to say "You know, you fit the description of a man we're looking for."
 
2020-10-26 8:06:24 AM  
The thing is, unless there's a serious effort at throwing out these ballots, these are votes in the bag.

Trump is counting on a large turn out on the day to save his skin, but these are still potential votes. Many of these people may choose to just not turn up.

Biden has actual votes and he needs to rely less on potential votes than Trump.

Mike_LowELL: I have no idea why anyone is talking about Donald Trump like he's the president.  Would have loved to see him run in 2016, compare with what Hillary has done to the country over the last four years.  Disgusting.

The easier road is to say how terrible that Democrat Donald Trump has been for our country.

Pretty sure Trump is done.


Especially after last night's 60 Minutes interviews.

Trump's was as brutal a self-immolation as I've seen. The "I'll be right back" and then ditching, then sending Kayleigh out with the not-healthcare-plan book.

Then that cool-washcloth-on-my-fevered-head Biden interview. He was poised and calm and smart and kind. I felt my rising blood pressure ease, my racing heart slowed.

Let's run up the score! 400EV for Biden. We can do it, America!

Unless?  Have you been paying attention?  There already are serious efforts to throw out these ballots- the PA SC just slapped down two of them, but there are more cued up and ready to be filed in the hopes they get out into the Trump-packed federal courts

This *is* the Trump party strategy- they aren't trying to hide it.  They have publicly stated they think they can invalidate half of all mail in ballots.  That's being wildly optimistic (for them) but they only need to dispose of a few percent in key states.

And I'm pretty sure they will.

Paul Baumer: bloobeary: Looking at https://electproject.github.io/Earl​y-Vote-2020G/index.html

13+ mil DEM
07+ mil REP

More interesting to me is:

06+ mil IND

The "unlisted" folks who couldn't be bothered to pick a side, have picked a side.
...and in numbers almost as large as the republicans.
That never bodes well for an incumbent.

That's exactky the thing - I wish there were more No Party Affiliation totals being included in news reports. It's a demographic that has a definite Biden advantage.


You do not indicate a party when you register it vote in Michigan.  Where are the demographics of the early voting in Michigan.

I don't have that kind of optimism, and I will say that even if Trump loses he still can do a lot of temper tantrum damage on his way out, but I think it's interesting that Trump voters like yourself appear to have embraced that he's on his way out.

My Trump loving family member called me over the weekend to ask more about Biden policies. Not because they were going to vote for him, but they were resigned to a Biden presidency and were worried about what they'd read online about things he would do. It was really weird re-assuring someone that he wasn't a far left radical communist even though I would think it was awesome if he was.
 
2020-10-26 9:29:53 AM  

labman: SoupGuru: That's the problem with early voting. The headlines motivate the voters of the campaign that's lagging behind.

That and people on the predicted winning side are like 'no need to vote, it's already decided.'


Actually, it works the other way.  The people on the predicted loosing side are the ones less likely to vote because 'it has already been decided."  People like winners.  People like being on the winning side.  Being on the winning side motivates people to vote because they want to be a part of the winning.

Unless?  Have you been paying attention?  There already are serious efforts to throw out these ballots- the PA SC just slapped down two of them, but there are more cued up and ready to be filed in the hopes they get out into the Trump-packed federal courts

This *is* the Trump party strategy- they aren't trying to hide it.  They have publicly stated they think they can invalidate half of all mail in ballots.  That's being wildly optimistic (for them) but they only need to dispose of a few percent in key states.

And I'm pretty sure they will.


The plan is for any state that has a Dem governor and a GOP state Congress. More specifically, the GOPers will put up their own electors that verify tRump as the winner, running counter to the Dem appointed ones who elect Biden. This WILL happen in any swing state set up as aforementioned and any Red state that the Dems happen to flip.

From there it gets contested and goes either to the court, which they've stacked just for this, or to the House for one vote per state. While this isn't a guarantee for tRump, it's his best shot and a damn likely one.

They've already told you they were going to do this, but I still see a torrent of red herrings about how we need to vote in numbers to big to ignore, etc. That was the whole point in biatching about the mail in votes. It gives cover to the states to do this and then say "Hey, all we've been hearing about is all of this rampant Dem cheating, so we had an obligation to..."

As someone already said, 2016 was our last chance, but we collectively smacked her hand away.

"At some point, Republicans have to vote,"

At some point, Republicans have to hide.

recondite cetacean: They will vote on voting day. You'd have to be stupid to not realize this.


Of course they will. This is all premature celebration.

Gyrfalcon: Keizer_Ghidorah: Th entire reason Moscow Mitch is rushing ACB into the SC is so they can contest and throw out the results of the election if Trump loses, claiming widespread rampant Democrat voter and election fraud. Buses of illegals with fake IDs being driven around the country, people putting multiple ballots in, Democrat ballot counters no throwing out all the fraudulent votes, etc. Trump and all of his sycophants and cult will bay for blood on November 4th, and the Supreme Court and his domestic terrorists will be happy to oblige.

No.

There was an interview with that asshole I caught on my newsfeed today.

It is solely because "they can't undo it." McConnell was gloating that everything that's been done the last four years will be undone pretty quickly, but "they'll be stuck with this [Barrett] for the next 40 years."

I've never heard anything like that from McConnell before. He openly said the only reason for Barrett was to stick it to the libs. And for no other reason.

He knows Trump is going to lose, he's going down too, and this is just a last mean fark you to America.


Pass bill that says "SCOTUS is now 6 members, retained by seniority".

Send to Biden to sign.

Boom.  No ACB, I like beer, or Not Garland.

Pass another bill, "SCOTUS is now 13 members, autoconfirm 7 new justices".  Send to Biden to sign.

Hell, have Biden come up to the Senate so he can sign 'em seconds after the vote closes.  He knows his way around those chambers, won't need to be hand-held by the majority leader.

Biden appoints 7 new members.  They take their seats .1 seconds after they are announced.  He can announce that Obama, Obama, Garland, Biden, Clinton, Clinton and Clinton are the new SCOTUS members right after signing.

The Democrats can undo everything the GOP has done on the afternoon of the 20th if they feel like it.  And they should.

Nocrash: labman: SoupGuru: That's the problem with early voting. The headlines motivate the voters of the campaign that's lagging behind.

That and people on the predicted winning side are like 'no need to vote, it's already decided.'

And then there is the "let's beat the loser onto a pulp" crowd.


A crowd, like Ender, who wants to win all the future battles as well.

Wrong thread?  It's tough to tell because every politics related thread drives People to drink.

I get drunk before I check the pol tab.


A wise move, my friend. A wise move indeed.

The victory laps are a bit premature.
There's still election day and the probably few weeks afterwards where they have slap fights in court over ballot counting.

This is a fun thought game, but the constitution is pretty clear it's a life term for justices unless there is impeachment.

In other words, that 6 member court could only happen once those three were done.

Remember that I am like the time Larry Bird got so bored of smashing his competition that he decided to start shooting left-handed on a road trip.  I must try out different angles and different posts on the path to the absolute annihilation of the degenerates in the Poltab.  It was delicious.

No one takes anything you say seriously and only some people enjoy it. You are the fark equivalent of a home pregnancy ad in the middle of a reality show. Just a pointless diversion from what people are actually interested in.

Which, today, is largely what a shiatty person fake_soldier is.

Do not be shy about your feelings.  You can be honest with me.  We both pay the five dollars a month to post here, though I think it is now closer to seven-fifty, I do not know, my mom pays for my subscription.
