A typical story.

A widowed neighbor reached out to my husband to ask for help. Her garage door has become inoperable after a power loss.

We are avowed and loyal Democrats. Our lawn demonstrated that clearly this past election season.

She, on the other hand, is a blind trumper loyalist who posts the most hateful and wrong things about Democrats on her FaceBook page. I know this because I lurk.

Yet, she knew where she would get unconditional help. Both my husband and I wouldn’t hestitate.

Spotted at Maga Rally in the square of Medina Oh, confederate flags displayed with the

large trump flags.

Going to barf.

It appears the rally was 25 or 30 strong. More barf.

Sen Langford R-Oaka will intervene by Friday if Biden doesn't get daily intelligence briefings


-snip

“Sen. James Lankford (R-Okla.) said Wednesday he will intervene if the Trump administration doesn’t start providing Biden with daily intelligence briefings by Friday as part of the transfer of power to the new administration.
“There is no loss from him getting the briefings and to be able to do that," Lankford told Tulsa radio station KRMG in an interview. "And if that’s not occurring by Friday, I will step in as well and be able to push and to say, ‘This needs to occur so that regardless of the outcome of the election, whichever way that it goes, people can be ready for that actual task.’”

It's the GSA, deferring to trumplethinskin, that will not acknowledge and approve the transition

funds and an office needed by Biden team. I tried calling, but phones not working.
(copied from a FB friend.)

Call Emily Murphy and ask her to do her job.
This screen grab is from Heather Cox Richardson's latest missive and contains what I think is an action item - put pressure on Emily Murphy at the GSA.
GSA Office of the Administrator
202-501-2472
We’re available Sunday 9:00pm–Friday 9:30pm Eastern Time
1-844-GSA-4111

‘Meanwhile, the refusal to acknowledge Biden’s win is hamstringing his ability to get his team in place. Emily Murphy, a Trump appointee at the General Services Administration, the agency in charge of signing the paperwork that gives a new administration access to office space and equipment as well as $9.9 million authorized for a presidential transition, has refused to sign paperwork enabling Biden and his team to begin the transition process. Once the transition begins, the new administration can begin to process disclosure and conflict-of-interest forms and get up to speed with ongoing government projects. But the GSA is refusing to allow a transition before Trump agrees that one is in order. Normally the transition begins the day after the election is called.’


I slept in a bit, only to be woken by my Mr anxiously quoting morning joe about the Democrats

losing House of Representatives seats blah blah blah...

My eyes flew open wide, I jumped up and said BASTA! ENOUGH!

NOT ONE DEMOCRATIC candidate was able to run a ground game so necessary to inform voters!
The Democrats honored the COVID social restrictions needed to help protect all people.
No door knocking.
No house parties
No rally’s held in halls
No booths at fairs, and other public gatherings
No ward meetings
No conventions
No hand shaking

I will NOT allow the other side to define perceived “faults” to diminish our hard fought win.
And, I am waiting for the media to start writing about how the trumpets need to understand the Biden voters.

President Biden and VP Harris will occupy the all important bully pulpit. I expect them, from day

one on, to use it.

Especially in Prime Time speeches.
Especially to inform the American people of GOP hijinks. Like refusing to confirm Cabinet, judges, etc.

Maybe we get ready to storm McConnell’s residence/office demanding he stop obstructing.

Up to the minute in Michigan important Senate race.

99% reporting D-Gary Peters 2,607,590, R-John James 2,601,926

I finally found the words that express the emotional act of voting.


When I step into the voting booth, I will not be alone.
I take the empty Lordstown facility and the forgotten small farmers.
The 545 children of asylum seekers taken from their families will rest on my shoulders and “that woman” governor from Michigan will stand at my side.
Peaceful demonstrators crying out for justice will guide me to the ballot and the uninsured will walk with me to the ballot scanner. Just before casting my ballot I will bow my head for the 237,000 Americans who have lost their lives to Covid. I vote not for me but thee.

"Honor The Postmark!" If the IRS honors the postmark at tax filing time, then boards of elections

must follow.

Kavanaugh is dead wrong. Just making shit up.

It’s unAmerican to not honor the postmark.
