(WFAA Fort Worth)   Early voting analysis shows Dems are trouncing GOP voters, with double the number of ballots cast. Despite more recent increased GOP turnout, they're still -20%. "At some point, Republicans have to vote,"   (wfaa.com) divider line

jst3p: Phony_Soldier: I'm okay with either one winning. I just prefer to protect my finances if I can.

By the way, those tax cuts are instant gratification but they increased the deficit by a significant amount, which is economic stupidity in a growing economy. That money WILL need to be paid back and will be a drag on our overall economic recovery from the recession we are now in. That may directly or indirectly have a negative effect on your personal finances in the long run.

If you REALLY are interested in long term financial protection it is more complicated than "TAX CUT GOOD! ME LIKE TRUMP!" The very wealthy have the ability to overlook this, if you are very wealthy then you may have a point. If you get a pay check you are probably just the type of voter Trump wants.

Seriously, you should look into this.


Actually, I agree with you. It's another thing I can't stand about the Republican Party. They scream about the deficit and then spend like crazy when they're in office.

However, I still think I can do better with Republicans. I'll try to collect gains while they boost the market (Tesla and Apple pre-split) and when it crashes hopefully can pick up bargains. I did great during the housing crisis and would take advantage of that opportunity again.

Well I don't know the Obama's administrations numbers so I'd like to see actual data.

...

You're aware that immigration has been an issue that Trump has expounded on a great deal, that they built new facilities specifically to house all the children they've kidnapped, and you wonder if perhaps Obama - who never did any of that - might have kidnapped more children than Trump. Trump who has openly admitted to deliberately walking in on naked teenagers and has no particular empathy for others.

You think Obama might have a worse record on imprisoning kids than Trump?

I have my answer.


I was asked why I was voting for Trump and I explained it's strictly for financial reasons.

Someone mentioned kids being separated from their parents and I replied that according to NPR there is a girl that's been separated from her parents for 6 years. I hope you can do the math. I don't have data on how many child separations occurred during the Obama administration vs the Trump administration.

I'm okay with either one winning. I just prefer to protect my finances if I can.

//I'm fine with Biden winning but prefer lower taxes, if possible.

Your CA property taxes are fixed under Prop 13, and state income taxes, local sales taxes have nothing to do with Trump. Chances are you're actually getting screwed under the tax system that Trump has passed. 

And as far as "socialism" goes - you're already paying for it. Through taxes and premiums payed by yourself or employers - but you're not seeing the benefits. All that money is just getting funneled out of your pockets into the ruling class.


I understand that Trump has nothing to do with my state and local taxes. We just happen to have a household income that would be impacted by Biden's tax plan. I'm not going to lose sleep over it but it's something I'd like to avoid, if possible.

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.)  

I haven't voted yet because I don't trust the mail-in system. I trust the Post Office - they're cool for the most part - except for the occasional missing package that vorps itself into someone's bag at the dizzy center. I'll vote at the poll on tuesday. 

We really need a national voting standard. Some states use punch cards, some use paper ballots, some use electronic, fark it wouldn't surprise me if Rhode Island was still using the old lever machines. 

In SF, we have paper ballots that are scanned by a machine. In a world where digital farkery is all too common, this is a pretty good system. You can always go back and count them by hand. (Assuming there's a verified provenance.)

And we need to teach Americans that maybe not every election can be settled the second the polls close on the east coast. Farkin football fans, "BUH WHO DONE WON?"

Give it a few days. Let the poll workers do their thing. 

I don't like early voting. I think it breaks more things than it fixes. Well, in most years. This year with the pandemic maybe it's ok. I don't know. But if a site like Fark that's filled with wacko gun nuts is tilting overwhelmingly to Biden, well, maybe we have a chance. 

Vote, lefties. 

I was motoring back from seeing some relatives out in the east bay a few weeks ago. Not more than half an hour from San Francisco. There was a group of people on a freeway overpass flying Trump flags. I rolled down my window, amongst much honking, and flipped those farkers the bird, at the exact same moment another guy in another pickup truck ahead of me did the same thing. 

It gave me hope.

But god damn. Bay area Trumpers. Th' fark are you thinking?


Interesting, I saw the same thing on my way to Gilroy. Southbound 101 and I was surprised to see Trump supports.

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.

Phony_Soldier: Langdon_777: 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.

It may not count but it says so much about the person you are. I do pretty well financially, but there are more important things to vote for than making sure my well off ass does better.


Agreed. Not only greedy and short sighted but cant see a difference between Trump abd Biden?

That is either trolling or willfull ignorance.

Phony_Soldier: I'm okay with either one winning. I just prefer to protect my finances if I can.


By the way, those tax cuts are instant gratification but they increased the deficit by a significant amount, which is economic stupidity in a growing economy. That money WILL need to be paid back and will be a drag on our overall economic recovery from the recession we are now in. That may directly or indirectly have a negative effect on your personal finances in the long run.

If you REALLY are interested in long term financial protection it is more complicated than "TAX CUT GOOD! ME LIKE TRUMP!" The very wealthy have the ability to overlook this, if you are very wealthy then you may have a point. If you get a pay check you are probably just the type of voter Trump wants.

Seriously, you should look into this.

Kids we're separated from their parents during to Obama administration. There is one case where a girl has been separated from her parents for 6 years, as per NPR.

You think Obama might have a worse record on imprisoning kids than Trump?

I have my answer.

I was asked why I was voting for Trump and I explained it's strictly for financial reasons.

Someone mentioned kids being separated from their parents and I replied that according to NPR there is a girl that's been separated from her parents for 6 years. I hope you can do the math. I don't have data on how many child separations occurred during the Obama administration vs the Trump administration.

"As for the number of children who were separated under Obama, there have been no official figures released - but, as we said, the HHS inspector general noted that such separations were rare."

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.)  

I haven't voted yet because I don't trust the mail-in system. I trust the Post Office - they're cool for the most part - except for the occasional missing package that vorps itself into someone's bag at the dizzy center. I'll vote at the poll on tuesday. 

We really need a national voting standard. Some states use punch cards, some use paper ballots, some use electronic, fark it wouldn't surprise me if Rhode Island was still using the old lever machines. 

In SF, we have paper ballots that are scanned by a machine. In a world where digital farkery is all too common, this is a pretty good system. You can always go back and count them by hand. (Assuming there's a verified provenance.)

And we need to teach Americans that maybe not every election can be settled the second the polls close on the east coast. Farkin football fans, "BUH WHO DONE WON?"

Give it a few days. Let the poll workers do their thing. 

I don't like early voting. I think it breaks more things than it fixes. Well, in most years. This year with the pandemic maybe it's ok. I don't know. But if a site like Fark that's filled with wacko gun nuts is tilting overwhelmingly to Biden, well, maybe we have a chance. 

Vote, lefties. 

I was motoring back from seeing some relatives out in the east bay a few weeks ago. Not more than half an hour from San Francisco. There was a group of people on a freeway overpass flying Trump flags. I rolled down my window, amongst much honking, and flipped those farkers the bird, at the exact same moment another guy in another pickup truck ahead of me did the same thing. 

It gave me hope.

But god damn. Bay area Trumpers. Th' fark are you thinking?

Dems are SURE of their votes. Nothing's gonna deter them. Lots of 'em are locked in already. Clearly, the Republicans aren't nearly as sure. If they'd made up their minds, they'd have voted already. Even if they're all voting on Nov 3rd, Democratic turnout being already in is going to mean that even 1% reduction turnout among election-day voters -due to getting busy, being sick (maybe due to COVID you caught at a Trump rally?), not wanting to stand in line in the rain at the new consolidated polling location, or whatever- is all it should take for Biden to outperform the polls in enough states that it'll be an electoral landslide.
