Glass half full, so, I am really bummed about the senate, I am concerned about health care,

while old and a pandemic and Biden getting anything done and judges appointed with a Republican senate. The upside, a Biden win gets Trump out and we do not have to hear that vile, disgusting, crude, mean, nasty voice again.

That is a good thing.

But this morning my son called and needed to rant so while walking my dog, with him on speaker we ranted about the nazi rw vote, and vile Trump as I passed old person after old person, without a care in the world that they heard our castration of Republicans. The conversation did both of us good.

Toward the end of the conversation I concluded that Biden goes in and does executive order after executive order undoing Trump damage and beefing up our departments that have been weakened and hurt for two years. 2022 we have more chances with the republicans in senate and blue wave them, then Biden spend two more years passing legislation.

Not the blue wave we wanted today, but they threw every corrupt, dishonest, oppression/suppression action against our vote at us and I think we will still get Trump out. That is a win.

I am at the point of accepting, and stating we will be ok. The 5 stages. I can wait two years not getting sick.

How does that sound?

But we needed the senate. Really needed the senate. What does the number sit at now?

Anyone knows? I am so disappointed Graham, Ernst got it and looking like Collins. We got Kelly. Co. dude, that is two. So that takes us to 49/51? Not good. We lose healthcare at that.

Oregon Gov Brown on voting and numbers in our state.

The numbers on why Oregon is one of the best states for voting:
✅ 73: percent of Oregonians who ALREADY voted!
✅ 92: percent of eligible Oregonians registered to vote
✅ 0.0001: percent of voter fraud (yep, not a thing)

I remember hearing at the start of covid in March that if insured and end up in hospital, insurance

was to pick up covid bill. Later reading about bills coming in to people, I decided that didn't happen. The other day I was talking to a woman about not wanting to get sick because money out of pocket and she informed me that with insurance, I would not be responsible for the bill, insurance would pick it up. I do not really believe it.

Now my niece has it, mid 20's been going on for day and last night high fevers and she is concerned about hospital bill. She said she has crappy insurance, but she does have insurance.

Does anyone have experience with this? Thanks.

Ya, I am going there. I just texted a young voter in Minneapolis. Nov 3, sunny and 57.

The day after, 58. They get it cold so these temperatures are like spring or something, lol. And here it is going to be a beautiful, warm, sunshiny fall day to wait in lines and vote. The person I text wants to do it day of. In person.

I told him, ... You all can rejoice and do an happy dance in the streets the next day. Free at last, free at last. Then we can all put our heads down and make it thru the next two months the best we can and hope we survive. But the day after, I think we need a nation celebrating in the streets. Like we had the woman's protest the day after election in 2017 in pink hats. World wide celebration.

Before the horse? Yes. But, I want to do it. We can all spontaneously break out in joy on social media, in the streets, seeing and dancing and cheering.

People, this election gets us as close as we can, to a known win and instead of projecting nervous and fearful, by gosh, I am going to enjoy it. We earned it. We deserve it. And I am taking it. I have voted and now for the next 6 days, I am going to cheer all those other voters on to have our national blue wave.

CNN: DHS Prepares To Flood Major Cities With Trump's Agents Ahead Of Election

According to CNN, two immigration enforcement agencies within the Department of Homeland Security are preparing to send federal agents into American cities ahead of next week’s election, which federal and local authorities believe could spark large-scale protests.

The preparations are being made despite harsh criticism over the deployment of federal agents during protests over the summer, which “Officials in cities such as Portland, Oregon, and Washington, DC...argued the increased federal presence was fueling protests, rather than de-escalating the situation.”

Immigration and Customs Enforcement is putting personnel on standby in the run up to next week's election, according to a senior ICE official, while Customs and Border Protection has been regularly training personnel -- an extension of the deployments this summer, an agency official said.

"We have teams ready to go as needed," said Ken Cuccinelli, the senior official performing the duties of the Homeland Security deputy secretary, but pointed out that "we don't have any specific intelligence that suggests any particular threat of violence."

According to the senior ICE official, personnel will be deployed if needed to help protect federal buildings, which would free up state and local officials if there are riots or crowd control issues.


Very cool for Oregon. They put out this message on voting this morning.

Lane County Elections Information:

This was a wonderful example of Du exceptionalism. I am reading a thread that Hays county in Texas

has done extraordinarily well with Democratic vote. I did a google search where Hays county is, because San Marco is south of Austin and sure enough, San Marco falls in that county. That is where my son is going to university and he is part of college Democratic party.

Going thru the thread I see my son in a picture. Now, he is behind the dude in the front of the photo, BUT... with covid, I did not get a visit from him this summer. And I will probably not get the visit with Christmas, even though we miss each other so, he does not want to kill me. But, this has made my Friday evening here in the NW seeing my son on DU. How fun is that. Thank you DU, you made my evening.

Interesting: Hays County, TX just south of Austin is poised to be the first in the U.S. to surpass its 2016 total votes cast. So far, 65,819 voters have cast ballots, vs. 72,164 in all of '16.

It's also the likeliest county in TX to flip from Trump '16 to Biden '20.

the man in an hospital room with covid, yet patients are dying without loved ones.
