Melinda on filming in GA. It is straight up *against the law to film in a polling place*, and not just anyone can walk around in there. Who the heck is Genevieve to set these laws aside? Where is this in Cobb County? I will go there and complain. There are placards up all around the stations announcing this. I had friends who were raised behind the Iron Curtain visiting in 2016 and I asked permission for them to enter the polling place to observe. Got a courteous, but firm "no way". I specifically notice the signs ever since. Where is this in Cobb County? I will go there and complain.

Those "Voter Protection Hotline" people were at my station too, but in the parking lot, well away from the entrance. They did not approach voters and answered me politely, when I (equally politely) asked about their organization and purpose. They did not mention their party affiliation nor the candidates. I've no complaint about this bunch. Cell phones are required to be turned off in the voting areas too. Even in my short line I was reminded of this three times.

P.S. three more handwritten Vote Dem postcards today, Boston, Illinois, and a "stamps.com" thingie with no discernible postmark.

Quite a few of my text messages on my cell with respect to the election are to my husband by name. Who sold the info that someone thinks it is his cell phone number?

Perhaps it is the number of adults currently in my house but I have had at least 20 visitors on voting, including at least 3 this weekend. Thank goodness I put sidelights (to fit the georgian revival style of the architectural plans and they replicate to a Brown Mansion of the correct period in RI. Mom collected Colonial Homes magazines from its inception) in by my front door as I can stand there and talk without ever opening the door or tap on glass and shake my head.

Dennis Prager:

"The ease with which tens of millions of Americans have accepted irrational, unconstitutional and unprecedented police state-type restrictions on their freedoms, including even the freedom to make a living, has been, to understate the case, sobering."

Sobering? No, it was scary as shit ... and sad ... to me.

Who is the vast bitter hoard?

Just an imagined by me future group of people who would think that Pence permanently dishonored himself by letting the Republic slip away when he had a chance to save it. And it wouldn't really be so vast a group, as I'd suggest that if Pence doesn't see his actions as treacherous, he'll be in the majority.

Jane

Henry,

Do you think that was the appropriate decision?

Tom R

A perfect way to end the 2020 college football season. Rumors are floating around that Ohio State has some players infected with COVID and the Big 10 wants to postpone the game to a later date. The flip side is non-OSU fans just think OSU is using COVID as an excuse to delay the game and give Justin Fields more time to heal from what is most likely broken ribs.

That was a nasty hit from Clemson's Skalski. He deserved the targeting flag.

henry

Jane, yes. Even Blake admits he had a knife and was reaching for it when he got shot.

henry

@hannah_wisn

The DA says Blake “twisted his torso” w/ the knife in his hand toward Sheskey while the officer was pulling on Blake’s shirt.

Car door & another officer obstruct view in vid. Graveley says 2 officers & 2 witnesses corroborate that motion. He didn’t say if Blake admitted to it.

Tom R

To Justin Fields credit after getting some painkiller shots he stayed in the game and had one of the most memorable performances in recent history. Any fan of the game hates to see superstar players like that get hurt and not get to play.

Jane

Henry,

I was unaware of the facts, but I lean toward the police these days, so I wanted to make sure. Thanks.

Blake is still alive and was armed and resisting arrest.
Consequences can be hard to beat.
His will last a lifetime.

Dave (in MA)

He was reaching for a knife, so the cop should have just reached for a knife so he wouldn't be using disproportionate force.

Dennis Prager's column captures the response of people in these trying times. I've been (mentally) describing people as "good Germans" for quite some time and just started reading "Ordinary Men" so I'm certain to be uplifted by what we have to look forward to😖

There's also the ubiquitous "Hate has no home here" signs. I guess virtue signalling is welcome here any time.

jimmyk

So let's suppose the miraculous happens and Pence or Grassley get the election thrown to the House. I recall the states are something like 26-24 Republican. Any wagers on which one or two Republican states stab Trump in the back and vote for Biden? I certainly wouldn't take the House vote for granted.

Do the Congressional delegations in each state take a vote, majority wins? Looks like MT, PA and WI would be close, could be flipped D.

Len

JK - I have always wanted to knock on the door of a "No home for hate" house, tell them I voted for Trump, and ask them what their level of hate is now?

Hi all, thanks for answering my question about the House vote. I should have known better!

I love those parody signs. The originals are evewywhere in my neighbowhood.

CCGirl does not like what is going on 😳

Rocco, I relate to the distracted while praying. When my son was sick, many years ago, I prayed but I think it was merely meditation now. As I learned more about my Catholic world, I began to understand the Rosary. Now, I have tried to pray so many times, and after a short time my mind is somewhere else. I figure that’s just plain rude and God and Mary would rather hear a short, sincere prayer. It seems that the only time I can pray it is when I am walking. And I am ignorant of the rules. I know the general focus, and I just do the best I can. In my mind it’s better than nothing at all.

Damn that Chris Stapleton and “Tennessee Whiskey,” as that’s what usually ends up in this mixed up brain!

Jane

Did anyone ever figure out what happened to Howie on Newsmax?

Jane

My friend in Atlanta thinks the delay, due to “broken dominion machines”. Is all about stealing the election.

Dave (in MA)

Newsmax probably cut ties with Howie because of the "He should be drawn and quartered, taken out at dawn and shot" remarks that DiGenova made on his show about Krebs that led to a lawsuit.

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

--And I am ignorant of the rules.--

Here are God's rules;

“And when you pray, you shall not be like the hypocrites. For they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the corners of the streets, that they may be seen by men. Assuredly, I say to you, they have their reward. But you, when you pray, go into your room, and when you have shut your door, pray to your Father who is in the secret place; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you openly. And when you pray, do not use vain repetitions as the heathen do. For they think that they will be heard for their many words.

Of man's rules I'm also ignorant...and glad that I am.

Why does this jerk like killing geezers so much?

jimmyk@ 6:23, the same thought has occurred to me. Also, what would happen to Minnesota, which has (believe it or not) an equal number of Republican as Dem representatives.

CCGirl does not like what is going on 😳

Right Ig, I meant focusing on certain parts of Jesus’ life during the Rosary “as the rules.” I should have stated it clearly. I also know that what you quoted is why I don’t worry about my “method of communication” so much, as long as it’s sincere (and perhaps discrete).

The day I am running down the road shouting prayers to Heaven at the top of my lungs is the day my family should ship me off to the Funny Farm!

Mostly I offer a few prayers while I babysit paint shaking on the old shaker, that will launch a can if not watched. Two minutes. No customers; let me take a minute in my mind.

peter

Pennsylvania also has an equal number of Repubs and Dems as reps.

CCGirl does not like what is going on 😳

And that’s all I have to say about that!

What a crazy two days we have. One thinks one can not take much more stress, foolishness, and general messiness, but then we come the first of many “grand finales.” I am afraid to say this craziness and unease is our “new normal.” (She slaps herself!)

See, you don't get it. If you voted for Trump, that IS HATE right there. So they would have no compunction about throwing you out.

Jane

Henry,

Blake was the guy who assaulted his girlfriend before being shot by thr police? Now I remember.

MissMarple2

I need a notebook with alphabetized tabs so I could enter all of these names along with a short description like "CEO of Google" or "White House aide to Trump."

Then I wouldn't get confused between Sean Parnell and Sean Levy, for example.

henry

Jane, yes. That guy.

jimmyk

Peter, according to this:

https://ballotpedia.org/Election_results,_2020:_Comparison_of_state_delegations_to_the_116th_and_117th_Congresses

MN is 6-4 Democrat, PA is 11-9 Repub.

fdcol63 🇺🇸

If the polity is split 50-50, and social media by itself can swing elections 10-15 points for Dems, then it will be almost impossible for the GOP to ever win another election.

And that's before you even get to other elements like vote fraud, now that they've learned they can openly steal elections.

Jane, we partied in DC on 9/12/09. People don’t realize that the TEA Party was formed right after 0dumbo was inaugurated. Mel’s pal kicked it off IIRC with an on air rant on CNBC.

Crap weather out here today. Blowing like stink all day. Highest speed so far 60.5 kts! (70 mph) So leaning up against hurricane speeds. Had to go inside the bank to make a deposit because they couldn’t use the the little pop out drawer.

Re the programming on OAN and Newsmax, they obviously are still suffering from growing pains. I have several shows on auto record and over the holidays they were all over the map show/no show. Howie was in the mess and may have just taken a break.
