    US Politics: Dead Pimps Need Not Apply

    Okay, let me reword that. It shouldn't even be that close. They shouldn't have lost the Senate race at all. Broward and Palm Beach have a lot of transplanted northerners and tend to lean left. Take them out of the equation and it's a blowout. Let's face it--Florida is racist as hell and as redneck as Alabama and Mississippi, just with nicer beaches (not for long), and would rather vote for the guy who committed Medicare fraud and has done everything he could to destroy their economy.. This is a state where 17 children were killed and two more killed days before the election...and they still went for the NRA guy. Rick Scott has unleashed environmental havoc and its residents seem to not care about that, despite the fact that tourism is their top industry. People flock there from all over the world. They truly are voting against their own self interest. Even the Panhandle, that was just devastated in a hurricane and all but ignored by Trump, went red. I've seen reports that 20% of AA women voted for DeSantis. Is that true? Florida is not going blue anytime soon, sorry.

    The easiest road is through the rust belt. Ohio might be tougher, but if they can get PA, MI and WI they're in good shape. Forget Florida. It's now ruby red. The rest of the south isn't flipping, either.

    What about Amy Klobuchar? I feel like the Beto worship is Bernie all over again. Don't get me wrong, I like the guy.

    I tend to agree. She knows what he does at work and the stuff he spouts. If she was that opposed to it, she'd divorce him.

    A black woman is going to be in charge of the finance committee. That should make him bonkers.

    The Arizona GOP sued to stop mail-ins from being counted. Cindy McCain was one of the people whose votes haven't been counted yet. She is NOT pleased.

    There was a whole box of provisional ballots left behind in a school in Miramar (Broward, of course). https://thehill.com/blogs/blog-briefing-room/news/415837-teacher-says-she-discovered-ballot-box-left-behind-at-florida

    Why is it always Broward?

    There's a huge undervote in Broward County--to the tune of 25,541 votes.

    It's meaningless, really. The only number that would have mattered is 51 seats, and we weren't getting that. So let's all calm down about that and look at the positives--and build on them.

    US Politics: Four Days and Counting

    Why would it be illegal for people to take a photo of their own ballot? Not so long ago, ballots were completed in carbon copy and the voter got the carbon one as proof. What's the difference? They also don't want people recording problems that occur. We've already had at least one machine switch party votes here.

    I've seen the same coming out of Georgia. I think they just don't want people taking pictures of their ballots as proof of who they voted for. Voting machines don't run on wifi (or shouldn't, at any rate) so there is no reason to turn off your phone.

    I'm pretty sure Kemp tried the same thing in 2016 and got shot down. Georgia Democrats should call his bluff and ask the FBI to investigate. That should shut him up. He must be losing badly. Russian election observers were in Georgia right before he said this, or so the Twitterverse has it. Rumors are now swirling that they've gone to Montana.

    And they will probably lose, especially if the young people turn out to vote. I think this country has finally had enough of that shit.

    How are they going to do that when they're on Mexico's side of the border? He's such an ass.

    Speaking of videos, it turns out that Luis Bracamontes, the cop killer in Trump's racist rant, entered the country illegally in 1993 and was deported in 1997. He re-entered the country in 1998 and was arrested on drug charges in Phoenix...and Joe Arapaio let him go. He was deported again in 2001 and re-entered the country to get married shortly thereafter. So much for "it's all the Democrats' fault!"

    There probably are some, but I think they'll follow the orders from their commanders. They've had worse thrown at them in Afghanistan and Iraq. They'll keep their cool. As I said, it's the heehaw civilians toting guns that are the bigger concern.

    My dad is rolling in his grave. I really doubt the military is going to open fire. Their first responsibility is to the Constitution, not the president. Such an act would be illegal and they know it. It's scary how many of his base love the idea, however. The armed yokels headed for the border are the bigger concern, although they'll probably fold like cheap suits when confronted with the REAL army. This is a dog and pony show. Let's get through the election first, then deal with this.

    I can respect that. The 1A applies only to the government, not private entities. That's something those morons at Gab and elsewhere don't understand.

    I agree, and you don't get to cheerlead for both. Their whining about Gab getting booted by GoDaddy is pretty funny, actually. They love free speech and the free market until it comes back to bite them in the ass. Who knew that the propagation of Nazism fascism would be bad for business! Here's the thing about neo-Nazis (seriously, let's just call them what they are): they think that free speech only applies to them. They hide behind it and truly believe that they can use it as a platform to spread their hateful and evil ideology, and that no one will call them on it because First Amendment. I am not a free speech absolutist. I don't think that giving Nazis fascists a free platform to spout their hate is a good thing but that's my opinion. Should there be limits on free speech as it pertains to ethnic intimidation, ethnic cleansing, ethnic violence or genocide? Or should we let these ideas out into the open and hope that the "marketplace of ideas" shoves them back into the fiery chasm from whence they came? Personally, I think even trying to have a debate with a bunch of Nazis fascists about the merits of genocide is plain stupid, even appeasing, but again, that's my opinion. This is how white supremacists view free speech: https://www.cnn.com/2017/08/15/us/dad-charlottesville-rally-letter-trnd/index.html

    Clearly you don't understand what free speech is. Private companies can boot you any time they want. You agree to Terms & Conditions, and if you violate them, bye bye.
