I was so very excited to see my ballot had arrived in the mail today.
The wind was taken right out of my sails, when I immediately realized it was already Saturday afternoon...
For once a reason to look forward to Monday.
@NatashaRomanoff It's Russian roulette for all of us. While many people don't take seriously that they could the next one to get sick enough with #COVID19 to die, in my circle of people I know I have a friend who lost a fortysomething brother, an acquaintance who lost both parents, and a colleague who lost three extended family members. My family (not household) member who was hospitalized survived. Why anyone wants to take the chance with Trump is beyond me. #VoteBlue
Trump will grab at any tiny straw that proves what he is saying so that he can win by cheating. IF trump tries to cheat to win there will be massive protests over it. -"Barr said to have told Trump about investigation into discarded Pennsylvania ballots that president seized on as evidence of widespread fraud" https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/barr-trump-pennsylvania-ballots-investigation/2020/09/25/5e4990a0-ff3b-11ea-b555-4d71a9254f4b_story.html?tid=ss_tw
The problem was caused by a “contractor."
Republicans love to privatize everything so they can make more money off of it. They also like contractors because you can cheat them out of decent employee compensation. Democrats would rather use public employees for this stuff.
This locality is run by Republicans, doing things the Republican way. But, somehow it’s the Democrats’ fault.
Trump wants any mail-in ballots with any sort of irregularities tossed except Trump votes.
So they FOUND them...
Then REPORTED it....
Transparency works....good job.
