I VOTED in OHIO in-person TODAY! Blue wave coming!

Early In-Person voting in Ohio began TODAY.
I voted a few minutes after the polls opened at my rural county Board Of Elections office. There were only about 10 or 15 people in line spaced out at 6 feet. We now vote on fill in the dot paper ballots that we then feed into an electronic scanner. (Much better than the Diebold touch screens.)

I voted straight Democratic, and did not even vote for a Republican when they were un-opposed like our sheriff and coroner.

I wore my N-95 mask, and everyone there was wearing a mask. Certainly no worse and actually much better than the grocery store.

As a great man one said : "Don't Boo, VOTE!"

Trump's infection was SELF INFLICTED!

He has gone to great lengths to do and encourage his followers to do the EXACT OPPOSITE of what the infectious disease professionals have said to do.
Everyone wears a mask
and social distancing.

Trump has been pushing groups of tightly packed people and mocked anyone wearing a mask. A single infected person (even without symptoms) could be spewing billions of virus particles into the air with ever breath. Trump is on tape as knowing this months ago. But he has insisted on having these super spreader in person events over and over.

Well, it has finally caught up with him. Now his family, white house staff and advisers and several US senators all have tested positive for this virus as well as Trump himself. With the best medical care in the world (literally) he will probably recover, but he still has a 1 in 10 chance of dying from this.

The United States has the largest number of infections and the largest number of deaths per population of any industrialized country in the world by a wide margin. Much if not most of this is due to Trump's mis-information and mis-leading his followers to NOT do the simple things needed to get this pandemic down to a manageable level like so many other countries have been able to do.

Make no mistake about it. Trump had done this to himself, and he has made this worse for ALL of us.
