Trump did say he brought football back. Nice of you to show what he used to turn you from a tight-end into a wide receiver.

Hi airdvr,

Every now and then, I consider one of your posts somewhat 'on the money.'

Then you eliminate it all by posting something that is so insulting; like this post of yours.

Basic set theory, dude.

Semantics.  If I needed brain surgery the brain surgeon would be my doctor.  I'm beginning to think I just might need brain surgery.

I'm sorry I offended you...NOT.  Lighten up man.  It's a joke (sort of)

I expect better than pure short-term thinking from everyone I deal with willingly. I wouldn't go to a mechanic who said "yeah it'll work" knowing it'll fail in two days; I wouldn't use a contractor who lied about the job or the price, etc. I've been gypped, and I've been fooled, but never twice in the same way, and not in quite awhile.

I realize you expect more from people you deal with personally -- you should also expect more from public servants, especially ones who are considered to be representatives of our country, state, city, etc.

Your macho talk is so inspiring. Where did you learn proper circle jerk technique?

And where's the semantics in thinking you know exactly what the straight talking Trump means even though you shouldn't believe what he says?

Your words, but I don't disagree.

Of course you are.  You said so yourself.  You think he is being honest - "he never says anything he doesn't believe in" - instead of feeding you a line to manipulate you.

Well guess what?  That makes you as gullible as all those lefties you like to mock all the time who believe what THEIR politicians tell them.

I've said it before.  I am a human racist.  Fucktards come in all colors and sizes.

The Proud Boys are hardcore white supremacists.

They advocate violence against minorities (both racial and religious).

Trump issued what sure sounded like operational orders to them.

Are you in any way shape or form ok with that?

Are you ok with the president giving orders to what are basically Nazis?

I don't think it's what you think it was.  I could ask the same questions of Biden with regards to ANTIFA.

You could.  But since Antifa is not a terrorist organization - the FBI calls them an ideology, not an organization - it wouldn't mean much.  It would be like demanding to know whether you support tax avoidance.  And if you do, you support terrorism.

It seems as if trump, GOP and his inner circle of criminals who like to use religion as a political tool have been told to pound sand by the Pope.

Oh well there must be some evangelicals around or bible toting photo ops that will work as well for his base.

The Catholic Church is one of the few large institutions around that are more corrupt than the Trump administration.

At what point in time did Biden tell the Antifa to 'stand by'?

Many are wondering if he plans on telling them to "Step Up" for the election. You know, to prevent 'voter fraud', which to them would mean not allowing 'those people' to vote.

Or maybe after Trump loses. He could call for an armed march by them. Maybe he could tell them to wear brown shirts instead of the polo shirts they like.

Hi folks,

Sounds like voter suppression to me:  'Texas governor cuts back on voting locations'

https://www.bbc.com/news/election-us-2020-54380684

I also noticed on the evening news that some states that have gone to mail-in balloting require that the ballot have a 'witness signature' also to be valid.

We have never had this req'ment here in Oregon.

Expect more of this as we get closer to 3 Nov.

His followers are already stepping up but you won't hear anything but encouragement from the WH.

"Two right-wing political operatives were charged Thursday with a series of felonies in connection with a robocall scheme that Michigan’s attorney general said was part of a broad effort intended to intimidate minority voters from casting mail-in ballots.

The operatives, Jack Burkman and Jacob Wohl, made automated calls to around 12,000 Michigan residents in August, warning them that their personal information from mail-in ballots could be used to execute outstanding arrest warrants or by credit card companies to collect unpaid debts, the authorities said."

The two charged are typical trump supporters "

Mr. Burkman, who is well known for peddling right-wing conspiracy theories and who has tried to smear public figures that included the special counsel Robert S. Mueller III with fabricated sexual misconduct allegations, did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Efforts to reach Mr. Wohl, who has contributed to The Gateway Pundit, a right-wing news site, were unsuccessful. Mr. Wohl’s Twitter account was suspended. Mr. Wohl was charged last month with a felony in California related to the sale of a security, according to court documents."

Perhaps best in the Banana Republic thread, but....

I am concerned about voter intimidation (under the guise of "protecting ballot workers" or "making sure people don't vote illegally). I'm also concerned about mail-in ballots being counted by closed-door cabals, kind of like used to happen in South Texas regularly (you can google Landslide Lyndon for details, but that was by no means a single occurrence).

Power corrupts. People see losing it as worse than what the others gain; in fact, people pretty much see losing anything as worse than gaining the very same thing would be (that book I've been reading, Thinking Fast and Slow, has some good research showing this). So of course people who think that they've been in power all this time will do pretty much anything to keep it.

The demographics are changing; I may not be around to see the political world catch up with them, but it'll  happen. Frankly, I hope it happens before we have too many dispossessed people, and end up shitcanning a bunch of US infrastructure that might have remained useful.

One of the things we tend to forget about the election is that it's pretty much a 'county level' event. The election officials are county workers. Usually known to the community.

That doesn't mean that they can't or won't pull some crap to tilt the election one way or another, but it really doesn't happen much. 

And I've seen a LOT of stuff going around on FB that local LE (all over the place, not just local to me) are saying that any 'volunteer poll watchers' who even appear to be trying to discourage any people from voting will be 'dealt with in an appropriate manner'. From what I understand that means warnings, trespassing citations, and then arrest.
