  1. Trump is going to legally contest this thing in the exact nightmare scenario I was hoping would not happen. Last night Michigan really threw some fuel on the fire when they found 138,339 votes for Biden and 0 for Trump. There's no way an update of that size doesn't contain a single Trump vote. https://twitter.com/Scottyterrible/status/1323996189637939204/photo/1 That being said it does look like Biden will take this without judicial intervention.
  2. One thing is for sure. They were wildly off in many races. I doubt they'll have much weight going forward.
  3. Here's a picture of it. https://twitter.com/willchamberlain/status/1323616167769055234/photo/1 It's pretty clearly stated that the watcher can go to any poll in the area. In the video provided by the same twitter account multiple poll workers tell the guy he's not authorized at that location (which is clearly not the case). Regardless of who wins I'm just hoping the shenanigans aren't so widespread that the legal challenges prevent a clear winner. It's better for everyone if there's a winner one way or the other in the next few days.
  4. Glad they got that sorted out, but I doubt that would have happened without the media attention. The certificate says right on the top of it that the poll watcher can observe any location. There was no confusion at all. Just like the signs that were up at some locations telling people to vote Democrat. These were not mistakes. They were cheating that only rolled back in the face of public attention. Not that Republicans aren't similarly using shifty BS in areas critical to them. The only innocents in this game are the voters (the living ones, anyway. )
  5. Looks like election shenanigans are already underway. From Republicans trying to invalidate 100k plus drive-in votes in Harris County, TX to Republican poll watchers being told they can't observe polls in Philadelphia. It's not a good look when both sides are pulling shifty bs to try to win. I have a preference in who wins, but I'd like to see somebody win rather than have this turn in to some contested 1824 style congress picks the president situation. Stay safe folks - this has the potential to boil over badly.
  6. Texas has great early voting options. The polls are open for multiple weeks and the wait was under 30 minutes even with the covid precautions.
  7. I've been against daylight savings time for decades. It is a constant pita in the software and back office support realms. I once built international invoices that had to adjust time based on the preferences of each country and whatever time zone they considered real at which times of the year. Did you know there are individual counties within states that have their own daylight savings time rules? Like you might be in a state that observes it, but in a county that does not. Madness. Pick a time and just deal with the seasonal changes in lighting like every other living thing on the planet.
  8. That sucks. I'd totally try that out with my currently persistent cough.
  9. Interesting twist in the Biden Bus vs. Trump Train incident from SMPD. https://www.wfla.com/news/fbi-investigating-incident-where-trump-train-surrounded-biden-bus/ The police department also said it has researched the crash and watched online video. It said the “at-fault vehicle” may be the Biden-Harris staffer’s car, while the “victim” appears to be one of the Trump vehicles. “The at-fault vehicle may be the white SUV and the victim appears to be the black truck,” a statement from SMPD reads. “Calls to the driver of the white SUV have gone unanswered and SMPD has not been contacted by the driver of the black truck. Since SMPD has not spoken to either driver at this time, additional investigation would be required to fully ascertain who was at fault.”
  10. yeah, saw that about 10 mins after I posted. Oops!
  11. And now 2020 has killed James Bond. Just 60 more days until we escape this hell. https://www.bbc.com/news/entertainment-arts-54761824
  12. Yeah, there are a LOT of people who thought they'd never own a gun or were even in favor of banning all guns who are now owners. When things start to get scary, suddenly the right to defend yourself effectively makes a LOT of sense.
  13. I would say it was a complete rejection of the status quo that got us Trump. The public was so sick of politicians that they gave the reality TV star and real estate guy a shot. That is a blistering condemnation of the quality of politician we have been getting lately. Comparing what we've seen the last few elections makes the politicians of yesteryear (Reagan, Clinton) seem like demigods in my very old opinion.
  14. Looks like the winter surge is happening. Texas death rate is finally starting to climb and the R0 rate for the virus is over 1 (i.e. spreading) for 49 out of 50 states. Though I don't know that we can fairly dump on leadership for this. Virtually every country in Europe I checked out is seeing a substantial surge in cases as well. So were several countries in the middle east and there are a variety of levels of shutdown across the mix of countries. I think this virus is just so stupidly contagious that we can't hope to contain it. Slow the spread? Sure. Stop it? No. Paris in particular is not receiving the new lockdown news well. https://www.express.co.uk/news/world/1354064/Emmanuel-Macron-chaos-France-second-lockdown-Paris-protest-riot-police-latest-news-vn
