Narc, have you not heard our pleas that you offer some description to click on your links?

My take is that narc has answered those pleas, and decided how he's rolling,
and it's not going to be telling what you're going to see.

I don't think I've ever clicked on a NSFW link or anything appalling from one of his links.
I do not always understand why I am reading them, but I think the majority are self explanatory.

Now, I had LOTS trouble yesterday with the series of Tweets Mel posted on some trial. ?insurance company? Health care manufacturer??
It was like walking in to the middle of an astrophysicis lecture.

You win some, you lose some. ;-)

My current wish is that a regular Scott Adams Periscope viewer post a few sentences about what his take home message is.

I never understand Mel's posts or links.

His rolling helps with my scrolling.

I think Melinda and narciso are posting for each other and no one else.

Mel operates on the theory that a lot of these people have funding sources that are illicit, like drug smuggling, human trafficking, foreign money which is illegal (especially China) and thus a lot of money laundering.

When a lot of these obscure articles get linked, it's another step in closing off funding sources. Now that the Laptop from Hell is being decoded and released, a lot more of Mel's links make more sense. I trust he knows what he's talking about because I don't know how any of that financial stuff actually works.

Several texts to the Armstrong and Getty show suggest that long lines are everywhere. One person said that they will not wait the 1.5 hours now and head back at noon and try again.

Conspiracy me thinks that the high Dow is part of the scam so that the dolts who think there will be less of a wait later can rationalize not voting because the stock market said “Trump will win.”

Me too! I listened to one once when he first switched over, and after 10 minutes of him talking about coffee I turned it off never to return. I guess he can monetize those videos in a way that he couldn't with the blog posts. Shame, that.

TK,

That's why I don't trust the volunteer site which posts wait times. I think they are trying to keep older people from voting. I don't believe any of them.

Good morning, all you wonderful JOMmers! In 2016 I was at Jane’s, wanting to be in friendly company if we lost. I will miss being on the lanai tonight.

Last time the falling Dow futures was an indicator for a Trump victory. We cheered as it fell over 700 points. So is it the opposite this year?

Happy anniversary, sb and ww!

"Is it suggesting Trump voters welcome a slaughter of the innocents, are engaging in murderous violence or would or could, or wut?"

Reaction to the SUV/Truck incident behind the Biden Bus in Texas ...

... Suggests people's tolerance for BLM/Antifa violence and arson in "mostly peaceful" protests means any confrontation initiated by left against right will be blamed on the mean right.

Love voting up here in far suburbia.

We had a 2 minute wait, very smooth. Polling place was well staffed and absolutely spotless.

Other than National races and State Supreme Court races, every other (county) race was a single, unopposed Republican:)

Robin, eff 'em all

Our wait was about 5 minutes (rural upstate NY). I was vote #261 which was pretty high for 9:15 in the morning here. Most people vote after work. This is an area that recently shifted blue after being the lone red hold out in our area.

I love voting on the actual day. The connection not just with fellow citizens at that moment, but throughout our history makes me a little weepy.

So is it the opposite this year?

I would say yes. Clinton was stable establishment, Trump the unknown. Any kind of unforeseeable upset frightens the horses. And it did.

Now, everything good for Trump is everything good for the markets and signals stability.

And a win for him would NOT be an upset in my opinion. The incumbent is the favorite.

Me too Robin! I have voted early in the occasional midterm or primary. But never for president. Always Election Day. It is a civic holy day. :)

"So Dame Peggy and Outhouse (peas in a pod) are "abstaining.""

Wouldn't want to dirty their little white gloves!

He could offer a description, but you wouldn't understand it!

I just click 'em all, because they're almost always interesting, and I really appreciate the scouting that he does.

It is high noon after all, JMH--No place for abstainers.
