  1. https://www.newsweek.com/fact-check-did-dominion-voting-systems-cause-widespread-voter-fraud-trump-claims-1547038
  2. During my lifetime, the GOP has been the party of the rich and powerful. Most of that time they were indifferent to abortion. Think Barry Goldwater or Alan Simpson. Then one day, they looked around, and noticed all those poor people in the Bible Belt and said, we can get those voters on our side by being the pro life party. You can make similar arguments for gun rights and gay marriage. Over a few decades, the GOP absorbed all of the Bible Belt. I used to be a moderate republican, but now I have nobody to vote for in that party.
  3. After reading this, I tried doing the alphabet backwards. I failed at "v."
  4. I think Trump will find a way to delay vaccines for blue state people.
  5. Has anyone done the math for how many votes will be lost to Trump's lawyers and SCOTUS denying late voting and counting.
  6. You guys know more about this than I do, but I'm feeling sick right now.
  7. Based on the votes above, I'm certain it will be Alex Cora.
  8. We just agreed with my daughter and her husband that we will not celebrate Thanksgiving together this year. We have not hugged since early March. This is getting really old, but most people are worse off.
  9. I would love to see Miggy retire tonight. If he did, he would always be remembered as the guy who hit two three run homers on his last day. Money says he won't, but it would be great to see.
  10. I don't know how this works, but the sky was red the first day, yellow the second, and just muddy gray after that. It still is.
  11. This isn't great art, but it does show how things look in wildfire country. The yellow cast is from a sunny day covered by smoke. The heat caused high winds, which knocked over a nearby oak tree, which then pulled down three telephone poles. Note the telephone pole stump in the middle, snapped in half by the force of the other poles pulling on the wires. That, in turn, caused sparks, which ignited the neighbor's field. Lucky for him, and for me, the fire fighters doused the blaze before it spread. I am standing on my property, and because of this wind damage I lost power and internet for 4 days.
  12. This makes sense to me. Not sure if it's supposed to.
  13. Its getting close to an early dinner time here on the west coast, so maybe it makes more sense after a couple glasses of wine.
  14. "This is our moment to make hope and history rhyme." I'm feeling really stupid here, but I don't get what that means. I've Googled the phrase and understand it's from an Irish poem, and that Biden likes to quote Irish poets. I guess I'm too literal. Anyone want to try explaining it to an old man? G_2, I would expect you to understand Irish poetry, because, well, you understand everything.
