The GOP has systematically fucked up in-person voting in selective areas.  In your "understanding the process", does a 10 hour wait in line sound like a reasonable process to you? Some, as

America owes a debt of gratitude to Stacey Abrams.

That certain precincts purported to shut down only to resume counting un-observed is well documented.

Yes, still, somehow, no court case proceeded from those "well documented" occurrences. So, basically more bullshit.

I don't disagree.

See, this is exactly why @Dog doesn't understand that his transparent weasel words, transparent bullshit and his constant transparent goal post relocations are what makes him such a lightning rod for cuntiness.  Rational people, I dare say honest people, would say "I agree".  He can't even do that.  He has to go with the double negative to give himself an out.

So later he can deny.

It's who he is.  It's what he does.

Raising "questions" in a dishonest way.

Holy fuck, Georgia has been solid today.  They objected and no senators signed.  I got eaten alive by mosquitos at a J24 race in Savannah once and accidentally drank sweet tea.  I'll definitely give them a second chance now.

forgive my questions, but here "in the forest, in our forest cities" (where we "...know everything about exploding trees..."-DT) this so far has been unanswered for us:

1. just HOW do DT & his supporters know, that the election was "stolen", that they had "actually won " it? Did they talk to a majority of the voters & these assured them, they had voted for DT? We are interested in the "mechanics" of this "certainty" of the election being stolen. Or just how do they & DT "know" of their "landslide" victory? (because even if there were fraudulent ballots cast, there would have to be  a sufficient number of  them to  "steal a "landslide"(!!!) victory".

2. If the US voting system is so "conducive to fraud": DT had the presidency for 4 years - why did he not try to change it?

(3. & who knows: how can we be sure that DT's election into office 4 years ago was correct, what with the "fraudulent system"?)

Expressing an opinion comes with a responsibility to own the consequences.  Certain people here routinely declare themselves free and clear of those consequences.  They forward opinions and theories that are detrimental to our society, then hide behind mealy mouthed statements and pretend that they're not espousing a viewpoint.  They are merely stating 'interesting' things or posing 'interesting' questions.

Every statement has consequences.  The consequences may simply be that you are viewed as a dishonest piece of shit.  Then, on the other hand, the consequences may be that you cause a riot.  Every demagogue on the planet has stood behind the 'I didn't do it, I'm just giving my viewpoint' mantra.  From Mark Levine, to Rush Limbaugh, to Breitbart, to Stormfront.

Those people are misguided and ignorant.  They even attempt to play the victim at times, suggesting that it's perfectly ok to speak up and be consistently wrong, but it's not ok if someone tells them to shut up.

Idiot logic:

1.  Dozens of election court cases are thrown out as frivolous and lacking fact.  But in bizzarro world, we can still claim there was rampant election fraud.

2.  Court cases are concluded, people are found guilty of numerous crimes.  But in bizzarro world, we claim there was no wrongdoing and it was all a giant set up.

And @Dog  

Yesterday’s events were entirely predictable. Every congressman and Senator who went along with Trump’s bullshit election story so they could raise a few bucks and/or lock down the bullshitter vote for 2024, and every bullshitter who spread the bullshit far and wide has blood on their hands after yesterday’s coup. 
 

Yesterday is the kind of thoughtful discourse that Dog’s people practice. It was the song of Dog’s people.

Some people will tell you that Donald Trump can't change the voting systems because the Federal Government isn't in charge of them.  That's handled at the state level and is a state right.

Of course, those same people will attempt to blatantly ignore that Trump had no problem calling state governments and telling them HOW their people voted, regardless of the results of the elections.

Those same people will pretend that it's perfectly fine for a president to declare that HE knows how the vote actually went.  Or they will close their eyes to it.

On the contrary I condemn the rioting yesterday and I believe Trump with his "we will not stand for it" bullshit rhetoric instigated it. There is no excuse for it and the perpetrators need to be prosecuted.

You are right in that it was predictable, it was predicted. AG Barr predicted it when he said we were playing with fire. When election safeguards are compromised to the degree that 36% think the election was stolen and who knows how many others harbor doubts....entirely predictable.

You know, I started laughing when Trump went to give his 'Please Stop' message, and started out by saying the election was fraudulent and those opposing him were evil people.

I don't know of anyone else who could speak out of both sides of his mouth so well, and pretend to want the violence to stop by repeating the same lies that started it.

 

 

Oops.  I made a mistake.  I can think of one other person that I know can be that dishonest.  He'll talk about demonization, but he'll turn a blind eye when his side does it.

Lots of cleaning. But I’m very concerned that the foundation may be infested and rotted.  Probably should get a structural engineering group in to examine the foundation for integrity before we start sweeping and wallpaper over the cracks

Kudos!

However flawed, the US democracy seems a lot more robust than the past few months suggested.

Along these lines I was thinking how easy it was to forget about the good side of this election: with all the bullshit happening before and after 3 November, including yesterday's assault on the Capitol, an overwhelming majority of US citizens still chose to simply cast their vote. They did not riot but they used the tools demoracy grants the people to show their will.

They voted. Free, peaceful and in record numbers! That is something to be proud of and to build on.

Over 155 million active voters should not be overshadowed by yesterday's violent crowd.

I was also impressed that the Capitol indeed picked up counting the vote again as soon as the building was secured and pulled it through. That, too, is a strong signal.

So, not all is lost.

Story in today’s NYT about the Congress critters who objected to Biden’s win. 3 of the 8 Senators who objected were just sworn in to their first term in the Senate and another was first elected in 2018.  Too many to plow through on the House side but the two from WI, my current place of residence, are also in their first term in the House but with considerable state legislative experience.  Of course most, if not all, come from heavily red districts/states and the South.

Most civilized people would agree that repeatedly saying things that have no basis in fact is lying.  Our court systems, elected officials, and volunteers almost universally agree there was no fraud.

In fact, members of Trump's own party have repeatedly stated that the election fraud theory is a giant conspiracy theory with no basis in fact.

It's unfortunate that certain members of our community don't understand that.  Those members of this forum are similar to the flat earth society in many ways.

Those members of this forum who continue to lie in support of Trump are responsible for what's going on, as are the people who voted for Trump.

The 2 congresscritters from WI come from heavily red parts of the state so supporting their Dem opponents is an exercise in futility.  Sen. Ron Johnson was originally one of the Senate’s objectors but he dropped his opposition at the last minute.  He is up for re-election in ‘22.  He has got to be defeated if he chooses to seek re-election.  The Dems have got to find a viable nominee.  I’ve been out of the campaigning game for awhile but like you I’m ready to jump back in with time and money.

You keep saying that. It's not that "the election safeguards" were "compromised", it's that you and your 36% believe, without evidence, that the election was compromised by non-existent fraudulent activity. It's not actual fraud,  it's fealty to a criminal POTUS that moves you and your elk to believe the false narrative. Get a grip on reality would you please? Your schtick is getting tiresome.

Certain people here have decided that they simply can't rule out fraud in this last election.  Despite dozens of court cases dismissed for lack of evidence, lack of standing, etc.  Despite election officials on both sides saying that the election was secure.  Despite republicans going on record.

Some of the same people here have decided Flynn is innocent.  Despite having plead guilty.  That the investigation into the President found nothing, despite a boatload of convictions.

Some of these same people attempt to play semantic games, and argue that 'fraud' in the election is not a 'fraudlent' election, and their repeated assertions of 'fraud' in the election does not suggest they believe the election was stolen.  Despite their obvious and desperate attempt to conflate them all.

Those people have one political party in common, and are dishonest liars with a total lack of moral fiber.  Or they are paid shills.

Sedition is a federal law, and falls under the umbrella that can be 'pardoned'.  Inciting a riot, on the other hand, is covered by many state laws.  As is murder in the incitement of that riot.  Mr. Trump cannot pardon it away.  Washington DC's specific law:

§ 22–1322. Rioting or inciting to riot.

(a) A riot in the District of Columbia is a public disturbance involving an assemblage of 5 or more persons which by tumultuous and violent conduct or the threat thereof creates grave danger of damage or injury to property or persons.

(b) Whoever willfully engages in a riot in the District of Columbia shall be punished by imprisonment for not more than 180 days or a fine of not more than the amount set forth in § 22-3571.01, or both.

(c) Whoever willfully incites or urges other persons to engage in a riot shall be punished by imprisonment for not more than 180 days or a fine of not more than the amount set forth in § 22-3571.01, or both.

(d) If in the course and as a result of a riot a person suffers serious bodily harm or there is property damage in excess of $5,000, every person who willfully incited or urged others to engage in the riot shall be punished by imprisonment for not more than 10 years or a fine of not more than the amount set forth in § 22-3571.01, or both.

If it can be proven but I doubt saying "we won't stand for it" will do it.

If it can be proven that he violated a law the penalty for which is jail...yes. I doubt that it can be.

I'm reminded of my neighbor's chihuahua.

He runs the inside of the fence line barking in a high pitched way, at anyone passing. If approached, he backs away, further into the yard, and puts on a fit. It's quite amusing to bait him, though it's boring after a while...he never changes his MO.

He instructed his angry mob to march on the Capitol, while Rudy said this would be war!
