        Received mine this past Saturday, finished my research for state and local issues that are on the ballot, filled it in, drove to the elections office and put it in the ballot box, got my sticker and drove home happy nd relieved.
        In my area of NE Fla., we have never had the kind of f**kery that is always present in central and south Florida. The republicans think that they have the entire area, but my city has more registered Democrats then Republicans. If they all vote and if all of their votes are counted (this IS Florida after all), Biden/Harris should carry Jacksonville.
        Whatever happens, I have vowed that I will not let myself get too upset or too excited about the outcome and to continue to focus on the long view.
        I felt as if I was carrying some precious treasure as I drove to the elections office. I felt nervous, even a bit fearful that something would happen before I could get there. I never want to feel this way again,

    Joe Biden raised more money in August than any past presidential candidate had in a single month: $364.5 million. Now he has done it again.

    Biden broke his own record again in September, according to three people familiar with the matter.

    We should know by now that Trump wants as many people as possible to become infected….he is trying for “herd immunity”…which carries a price that millions will die…only by electing Biden/Harris..will America get off this road of death and destruction

      Just wondering…why does this POS (excuse my language) not get covid? I don’t want the “man” to die…just sick and on a respiratory. His Doctor to be black, his nurses to be hispanic and gay, and his respiratory therapist to be Muslim. I want his life to be taken care of by the people he spits on in his daily life. That is my dream…full (but slow) recovery.

        I had a similar Karma wish of DJT getting Covid 19 so bad he needed to have a respirator only there were none due to the administration not supplying enough. I was meaner than you. My wish ended there with the inevitable result. I like the health responders being of different races that you had in your dream scenario.
        Maybe not death being the end, but a trial for all the recent rules and laws broken with a choice of life in prison with no ability to tweet or be interviewed or being deported to Russia with a lifetime ban from the USA.

    Posted this at the end of the last thread. Just now discovered there’s a new thread.

    Some afternoons I listen to the Clay Cane Show on Sirius Urban View. Clay is a young Black man. Love his show when I can catch it, or even part of it. Today, I caught his last segment with a young Black pollster, Terrance Woodbury. He explained in detail how he does his polling in order to get the absolute best possible results, results that represent a good picture from the people he is polling. He polls mainly young women and young black men, 35 and under. Following is what he found from the Black men he polled:

    18% of them support Trump. The bottom line is it is all about marketing. He said everyone of them that he polls who support trump spit out instantly trumps three main talking points to them: HBCU, I’ve done more for Black Americas than any president in history and the First ???? Act. (I was working on a recipe and trying to write at the same time so missed that full line.) He said everyone of them came out with those answers Boom, Boom, Boom. Why? Since the George Floyd killing, trump campaign has spent $6MILLION on campaign ads aimed at this age group. MARKETING!!!! The Biden campaign in same amount of time spend $8000 on Facebook ads aimed at same group. Trump stresses what the Democrats have NOT done for them. As he said, trump is great at marketing and if Biden hopes to cut into that percentage at all, he must begin ASAP to message better to this group.

    Some of you may remember the op ed I shared couple days ago about the need for the Biden campaign to get into these neighborhoods and TALK TO the NON Black voter, many of them younger men.

    One thing that struck me was on Urban View (which has a huge following with Black Americans of all ages and both sexes), in a period of 3 or 4 days, I heard two different Black men saying essentially the same thing. I know some of you poo-pooped the op ed link. I’m not Black, but I personally both of these have important messages for the Biden campaign. Problem is that it is likely too late to change anything now.

    This is an administration that lies for a living.

    Over 200,000 people dead. Families devastated. People’s lives turned upside down while it plots to cause more harm – holding back resources from blue states.

    I believe Melania had a very lovely phrase on the back of a jacket she wore, for moments just like this 🤔.

        I’ve heard/read others’ belief that this is a distraction. If so, is it so that tRump will now get sympathy rather than blame? This administration and his campaign have been trying to keep the focus away from the pandemic and his failures in addressing this crisis. Him reporting that he, his wife, and others in his circle have tested positive keeps COVID-19 at the forefront. While most are being civil and expressing wishes for a recovery, there still needs to be a focus on why we are where we are and how cavalier he and his supporters have been throughout this pandemic.

        I am hopeful though that we will come out of this “breaking news” loop (one that is rendering no new information) and return to tRump and the GOP’s attack on our election, his taxes/debts and the danger he presents to our national security, that there is still the effort of trying to eliminate the ACA **IN THE MIDDLE OF A PANDEMIC***, the fact that Wall Street is not indicative of the struggles of Main Street and the GOP Congress is doing NOTHING to help alleviate these struggles, the fact that we have people in leadership positions that embrace white supremacists and condone violence against POC and other groups, and the whole hypocrisy of trying to ram through a SC nominee.

    a) What would happen to the election if Trump became too ill up to election day?
    b) If Trump died before election day, would another republican be substituted on the ticket, or would Pence be able to move up as the pres candidate and get himself a new VP?

    WHAT WILL HAPPEN IF THE PRESIDENT CAN NO LONGER RUN FOR OFFICE?

    “If something happened [to the nominee] after the conventions but before the election, the national party committees would pick another nominee. Under Republican rules, the Republican National Committee could reconvene the national convention. Pence would once again be the obvious choice for Republicans, although the GOP would also have to pick a new vice presidential nominee.” — Five Thirty Eight

      Whenever Romney was grandstanding re his ‘integrity’, because I trusted him so little, I always thought he was positioning himself to step in, if the need arose. Of course at this point I’d just as soon Liar-in-chief remained viable so that he can be voted out resoundingly.

    “Trump Knew Hope Hicks Had COVID, But Still Held Campaign Event”
    “Trump knew that Hope Hicks had the virus, and he didn’t care if he risked the lives of his staff, donors, and supporters by traveling to New Jersey and holding campaign events…
    Trump is elderly and obese with underlying health conditions, so he is at high risk for complications from the coronavirus, but this is about more than a president getting sick. It is about a president who got sick because he refused to listen to the science in the middle of a pandemic and recklessly endangered his own life and the lives of those around him.”
