1962 was no picnic either. 2020 is bad . The beat goes on.

The song written by Sonny Bono and was a hit for Sonny Cher had a song called The Beat Goes on.  The song was released in 1967 but applies to every year it seems. I sat on my porch today thinking, “ This is one crazy year”.   I never say on New Years Eve that…

This is illegal. Polling place in Pa. had INTIMIDATION Saturday.

Raw Story has a story up that reads like a nightmare.   People do take your phones to the polls.   This is insane.  People should have been arrested and the Biden Campaign needs to get their lawyers there to make sure this does not happen again.   File suit against the city if they refuse to enforce…

Today I voted for Biden and Harris in VA

which opened early in-person voting today. Unlike previous years, you do NOT have to fill out a form and give an excuse of why you cannot vote on election day. I was in Arlington County (which is heavily Dem —  Biden will easily carry more than 70% of the vote).  Rather than having to go…

All Votes Matter..Now More than ever

“We Will Vote” – A Lincoln Project response to Trump

and his idiotic tweet about postponing the election it provides tons of relevant video, and makes clear that nothing Trump does will keep those opposed to him from voting here is is: x YouTube Video in the first half hour since it was posted on Youtube it had over 33,000 views there.

Trump, who requested a mail ballot a month ago, says 'mail ballots are corrupt'

Oh, Jesus, watch this derrière-chapeau try to claim that mail-in ballots are the end of democracy (second tweet). x Trump accuses Wisconsin Democrats of wanting to move today's election because they were scared about Trump endorsing a Republican, not because of the deadly pandemic. He then pushes lies about mail-in voting enabling cheating. pic.twitter.com/vWLUR4p7Pz— Aaron Rupar…

Russia if you are listening…. Screw YOU.

The knuckledraggers are at it again.   LOCK HER UP.   Where are the emails?   Let’s subpoena Hunter.   This country is so divided and between the earthquakes, tornandoes in Nashville and coronavirus popping up all over, this is all the bums think about. Today is Super Tuesday.   It is all about putting this puzzle together as best…

A thought looking ahead to 2020 election day

Imagine this. In heavily Latino precincts, ICE shows up and starts arresting people. It does not matter that they are American citizens, that they have picture iDs with them.  We have already seen ICE arrest American citizens. The idea would be to intimidate, to suppress votes. If you think I am being paranoid, I want…

A quick hint about interpreting some of these polling numbers.

Fight for the vote

We all know that Republicans are working diligently to win a permanent majority by interfering with our voting process.  Voter purges, reduced hours at the polls and voter ID laws are moving ahead at full speed.  These efforts have been fought in court with mixed results while the traditional media pollutes the discourse with false…
