A Poem (from Vonnegut) for all the Democrats that spent hours knocking on doors, making calls, and

helping campaigns:

"We do, doodley do, doodley do, doodley do,
What we must, muddily must, muddily must, muddily must;
Muddily do, muddily do, muddily do, muddily do,
Until we bust, bodily bust, bodily bust, bodily bust."

Just back from my shift at the polls.

I set up the Democratic table, put up all the signs and handed out literature. I voted at 7:30 am, (later than my normal 6:15-6:30 am time) and was voter #305. That's a much higher than normal turnout, but admittedly it is hard to predict based on the early morning voters.

GOTV, DU.

Anatomy of a Rat Fuck

Here's the schedule. It seems to be repeated every single election. Don't believe me? Bookmark it and check before the 2016 elections. Or plow thru the archives.


1. Month before the election: Both parties are the same.

Unwritten message: no point in voting.

2. Two weeks before the election: Accuse every mainstream Democratic politician of being 3-way, corporate, conserva-dems, DINOs who doesn't care about the voters.

Unwritten message: no point in voting

3. One week before the election: Impossible to win, look at all these right wings polls and pundits! They all agree we can't win.

Unwritten message: no point in voting

4. Day before the election: The machines might be rigged! Oh noes! They won't let us win.

Unwritten message: no point in voting.


To each and everyone of one these, I say screw that. Show up and vote. Bring your family, bring your friends, and bring your co-workers. Shame them into voting. Get them to the polls. We are doing better than the media reports and can take big wins if we show up. Don't sit this one out. Don't let anyone tell you it is a lost cause. GOTV.

Dumb Crimminals: Man steals and uses neighbor's tractor

A spectacularly bold theft case — one neighbor taking another’s $10,200 tractor and using it to mow his own yard — has ended with the incarceration of a 44-year-old Montgomery County man.

“You stole their property, and you were brazen enough to ride around with it,” Circuit Court Judge Robert Greenberg told Michael E. Murphy on Friday as he sentenced him to 18 months in the county jail.

Best tweet on Marvel's announcement of a Black Panther movie:

"Think J. Jonah Jameson & The Daily Bugle hates Spider-Man? Wait till Sean Hannity & Fox News gets a load of Black Panther."

Ok, who broke General Discussion?

I refer to the out of whack "response to" organization.

Last day to request an absentee ballot in VA. Know anyone who needs one?

Scanners

Can any recommend a not too pricey multipage scanner for home use?

TIA
