109. Might I recommend DRAGON Naturally Speaking or some other assistive software.
It's very helpful for those with vision limitations as well as typing limitations.

I haven't done any "convincing" of anyone to vote for "my candidates" of late. You do know the next election isn't until next year? In my state's Senate race, we've yet to establish a field. There will be no primary challenger to the incumbent President, so do disabuse yourself of that notion.

Perhaps you are confusing me with someone else (said kindly, because I don't want to suggest that you're confabulating).

I am not "insinuating" that you are "incompe(n)tent" because I point out that your spelling, grammar and comprehension of the written word are sorely lacking. This is a DISCUSSION forum--the idea is to discuss; why, this post is a "General Discussion" post. If, however, you are challenged in forming sentences and comprehending the meaning of an article (as you quite decisively demonstrated above), then you will have difficulty participating, and your words will be challenged.

That is not my fault.
