Update on previous post, MAGA scum attempted to steal ballots from local drop box.

After township Supervisor claimed they were just stealing it for the metal. I began to think they were trying to minimize or cover up the crimes. I called local Sheriff office and was told an investigator would get back to me. Yeah you guessed it that didn't happen. Only one report on local radio that quoted Supervisor saying someone trying to steal it for metal. That same report was repeated many time on radio. I reached out to SOS, today got an e mail saying they were aware and are tasking state investigators to investigate and prosecute. Seems they don't think the scum were just looking for metal.

MAGA scum destroyed my township ballot drop box

Wife and I noticed drop box was gone when we went to drop off our absentee ballots In Jefferson Twp. in Hillsdale County Mi. Wife took envelope inside and hand delivered to clerk. When she came out she said ballot box was in lobby covered in tape. It was still missing today so I called to find out why. About 40 minutes ago my call was returned clerk told me they tried to steal it but when that turned into too much work they destroyed it.

Clerk told me she was shocked I said actually i wasn't but I sure as hell was angry. My county has turned in to a cesspool of hate under the watchful eye of Christian Nationalist Hillsdale College and the Republican party.

Every once in a while here I see someone post something from Facebook.

It is usually followed by posts saying FB is a sewer etc. I usually answer them with FB is what you make of it. I am not a joiner and have kept my FB "friends" list pretty tight. Let me share something with my DU friends. As some of you know I live hard by Christian Nationalist Hillsdale College Almost all of the FB groups here are sewers with Trump lovers and and conspiracy theories. But that is not the whole story. A few years ago a group was started it had the word caring in the group title. It was a counter balance to one called Nosey Asses of Hillsdale County. That was a site that basically spread gossip about other residents, always with a hard right edge. The new groups name was Nosey Caring Asses of Hillsdale county. My wife noticed them and said I should take a look. I found people talking about progressive ideas right here in my county.

Membership has steadily grown I believe we are somewhere around 800 now. Recently a group decided to have a face to face meeting the goal was to discuss ways to do good for the community. A meeting was scheduled to be held in Mrs. Stocks Park In Hillsdale. I was unable to attend, but part of what came out of the meeting was a way to help our homeless population. Yeah little Hillsdale Mi. a place with around 8 thousand people has a homeless problem. Seems incongruous considering the wealth at north end of town. Our group has started bringing hot meals and sustaining supplies to an increasing number of homeless citizens at Mrs. Stocks Park every Saturday. Members have stepped up with time, money and donations of clothing. Hillsdale has a warming center for the homeless. But it doesn't open until Nov 1.

In the grand scope of things it is a small gesture but hopefully we can do bigger things. I knew there was a homeless situation in Hillsdale but had no idea the scope. One of the homeless told me the other day there are 150 homeless in the area. She said for her it is not a choice she works but can't find housing. Something always comes up and she just can't get ahead. I am proud of my FB group for trying to make some unfortunates lives a little better. As I say FB is what you make of it. By the way not long ago group name was changed to Caring People Of Hillsdale county.

3 or 4 races where money would make a difference

and we have a realistic chance. Great respect for knowledge in this group. Have held a few bucks back for last minute. Also my grandson told me he wanted to contribute where it could make a difference. Please share your learned advice.
