And most pedophiles are Democrat.  What's your point?

But thank you for your correction.
And mass murderers.

GOP held hearings on Joe Biden and the Ukraine thing.  Came up with a big nothin, despite the investigators being part of the GOP and being intent on discrediting Biden.  Not that it would stop you guys from posting about it.
You mean kind of like the big nothin on Russian collusion that was used by the discredited House Democrats to impeach president Trump with zero evidence? 

Oh, and Ron Johnson’s Committee isn’t done with their work, so your claim about a big nothin is a little premature.

I'm not quite seeing it.  The ballots still have to be postmarked by the time polls close on November 3rd but counting them can continue for three days after.  I don't see how it would be possible to count all the mail in ballots fast enough.  Here in Wisconsin there's a law that says you can't START counting mail in ballots until the polls close.  Could be the same thing there.  Other than democrats there mailing in more ballots, I don't see the handing it to them problem.  But I'm also exceptionally dense today.
I thought here in Wisconsin they couldn’t open the mail in ballots until the polls OPENED, not closed, but I could be wrong.

I seem to recall seeing poll workers feeding in handfuls of ballots during the day when the voting traffic is light.

Nothing pisses me off more when I order something and says it will be delivered by UPS or FedEx, only to have them pass it off to USPS. That will always add a couple of extra days to the delivery. And all 3 services come to my neighborhood every day.
That seems to be the trend if you want “free shipping.”  So UPS ships it across the country to a distribution center within a few hundred miles, and III can track it up to that point.

Then they hand it off to the USPS and it is in limbo for as long as it takes for the USPS to get around to deliver it. I’ve started just paying for shipping to avoid that.

Wow, that’s interesting. Most Trump voters I know don’t trust the early voting process, and ESPECIALLY not the vote by mail process, and will be showing up to the polls on Election Day. Personally, I don’t want anyone’s hands on my ballot before I no personally insert it into the machine.

So if there is that much early voting turnout for Trump, that spells very high enthusiasm.

My USPS Priority Mail packages seem to arrive a day, two or three late, but they arrive.  No explanation for lateness of course.
It’s the Rona. That’s their excuse for 2020. Not sure what they’ll use next year.

Russian disinformation campaign.  Congrats on being Russian stooges.
How pathetically convenient and intellectually lazy and dishonest. Blame an invisible and unverifiable source, with no need or ability to provide proof.

I thought scientists were supposed to be intellectually and academically curious.

Agreed. But mostly because it wont influence the undecided. Timing is suspect - will smell like an October Surprise to them (seems that way to me) with claims that aren’t likely to be corroborated or debunked before election night. Ironically, I think the MSM attempts to silence the news itself may have greater impact against the Biden ticket than the contents of the alleged emails.
I agree. Republicans are generally inept at pulling October surprises. One thing that they have going for it is Ron Johnson’s Committee work into this matter.

The FBI was given the laptop and eventually destroyed it. Since when do you destroy evidence?  Good thing the shop owner kept a copy of the HD.
I’ll just get out in front of this right now and express my condolences to the family of the computer shop owner for the unfortunate single-car accident where the owner’s gun went off and discharged two rounds into the back of his head in the middle of the crash.

I just checked the Constitution and I just can’t find the section that says that government controls religious, secular and traditional holidays.  Maybe I need better reading glasses.

Just like the last civil war perpetrated by democrats in an effort to protect slave ownership, the current democrat party is ginning up a civil war to keep blacks ignorant and under their thumb.
That is a super accurate statement.  The democrats only care about black people for a couple months every 4 years.  I’m hopeful that the democrat chokehold on the black vote opens up this year.

Depends on how it’s twisted.  ::)
The death count is trending down because some are coming back to life to vote for Biden.

The great state of Wisconsin.  Happy National Cheese Curd Day!
Nice!  I’m in southeast Wisconsin, and I’m seeing the same ratio of signs. Damaged and spray painted Trump signs count as double because they show the public what vile and hateful people the democrats are.

My daughter is in rural Wisconsin and said the farmers who used to be 50/50 are now overwhelmingly Trump supporters.

No such beast appears to have ever existed. For example, Thomas Jefferson, who believed strongly in freedom of speech, on the newspapers of his day:

“The most effectual engines for [pacifying a nation] are the public papers... [A despotic] government always [keeps] a kind of standing army of newswriters who, without any regard to truth or to what should be like truth, [invent] and put into the papers whatever might serve the ministers. This suffices with the mass of the people who have no means of distinguishing the false from the true paragraphs of a newspaper.”

“I deplore... the putrid state into which our newspapers have passed and the malignity, the vulgarity, and mendacious spirit of those who write for them... These ordures are rapidly depraving the public taste and lessening its relish for sound food.”

 “‘From forty years' experience of the wretched guess-work of the newspapers of what is not done in open daylight, and of their falsehood even as to that, I rarely think them worth reading, and almost never worth notice.”

“Nothing can now be believed which is seen in a newspaper. Truth itself becomes suspicious by being put into that polluted vehicle. The real extent of this state of misinformation is known only to those who are in situations to confront facts within their knowledge with the lies of the day.”

“As for what is not true, you will always find abundance in the newspapers.”

“A coalition of sentiments is not for the interest of printers… [T]he printers can never leave us in a state of perfect rest and union of opinion. They would be no longer useful and would have to go to the plough.”

"I really look with commiseration over the great body of my fellow citizens who, reading newspapers, live and die in the belief that they have known something of what has been passing in the world in their time…”

“A truth now and then projecting into the ocean of newspaper lies serves like headlands to correct our course. Indeed, my scepticism as to everything I see in a newspaper makes me indifferent whether I ever see one.”

 “The man who never looks into a newspaper is better informed than he who reads them, inasmuch as he who knows nothing is nearer to truth than he whose mind is filled with falsehoods and errors.”

“From a very early period of my life, I had laid it down as a rule of conduct, never to write a word for the public papers.”
THAT IS AWESOME!  I knew Jefferson was suspect of the Press, but I never read that. 

Man, same shit, different century.
