If this is a duplicate I apologize, but I can't believe

That I haven't seen this here today


Is there any place that's offering an alert

When Biden goes over the top? I'm getting sick of hanging on the news, but I sure would like to go out and honk my horn like crazy at the very minute. And I would leave my phone on to be able to do that.

USPS defies court order to find missing ballots


The United States Postal Service has been court-ordered to do a “sweep” for 300k missing mail-in ballots. They’ve refused.

Can the USPS just decline to follow an order from a federal judge? That’s the question sweeping the nation as election day comes to a close. The Washington Post has reported that the order from U.S. District Judge Emmet G. Sullivan of the District of Columbia required the USPS to do a sweep of facilities in 12 postal districts in 15 states, by 3:30 pm.

Instead, the agency’s attorneys sent back a response over an hour after the deadline, refusing to comply, saying they couldn’t follow the order “without significantly disrupting preexisting activities” and suggesting that the court couldn’t possibly have meant for that to happen.

Attorneys, legal experts, and voters alike expressed shock that an entity could expect to get away with flatly refusing to comply with a Federal order, especially at the expense of voting rights.

Okay, I just saw on one of my local groups,

A description of Trump that I have never seen before, and it surprises me that I haven't, and I nearly fell on the floor.

Boss Tweet.

Does anybody know, regarding mail-in ballots,

If Texas process has them as received or on Election Day? I'm trying to decide whether to carry mine in or vote in person.

Technology question regarding Android app permissions.

I'm getting a scale, and I wouldn't mind the kind that sends data to your phone via Bluetooth. Unfortunately, all the ones I found so far require that you enable location on your phone, or log into Google on your phone, or both. I see no reason you should have to do this, so I am not getting that kind of scale unless I can find one that doesn't require unnecessary permissions. Does anybody happen to know of a Bluetooth scale with an app that does not require unnecessary permissions?

Dan Rather nails 2020.


Houston police chief on Trump.

Don't know which I like better, the words or the eye rolls.

Houston Chronicle. Front page of the sports section.


I'm trying to find some way to make the actual picture appear here. If anybody knows how feel free. Or tell me and I will.

When I see somebody in USA gear,

I seriously don't know what to think. My initial supposition is that they are Trump supporters and support his USA. My hope Is that they support the USA as we hope it will be going forward. But I'll tell you the truth I think I'm wrong on the second assumption.
