198. From a "free" state- NY
I don't want to clog up here volunteer lists at this time with no place here involved in fraud(though I am checking with the unresponsive Dem party headquarters).

I called my union, left message(long). I called party headquarters in Monroe County(left message).

I called the big newspaper I didn't subscribe to. Am going in person to the headquarters of the local chain I do subscribe to to give back(unread) their papers and lay out our story.

I called the local TV affiliates(CBS,NBC, CBS) in a 3 part message. Talk to news managers live. First Vote fraud, Bev's site, lawsuits in other areas. The coming vote machines to NY involved, the death of the right to vote, and finally whether there was a lockdown of even breathing about this issue and running protests and lawsuits by the national news. They could find THAT out if they tried.

One asked if I wanted to do a press conference(no, that is not as supportive as it sounds, they mostly sound lost in space) but I said a small fry like me ion TV with disorganized information? First I was going to contact the party and the union to see if someone better and backed will get involved.

Action Day? I stuck my neck out on the scope of the effort that is hard to see outside DU, Bev, and scattered other suits. Hey, we are doomed anyway if things fizzle out.

My big scene at the newspaper(all reason no swearing I promise) upcoming. Our big fight, a desperate one, is coming up to save NY from the BBV element. My daughter was way ahead of you in making posters and dropcards with Bev's site prominently mention. VOTE FRAUD, etc. Short, the NY issue, no cute stuff or partisan message.

Buying generic stuff(from Oregon, a free state)was pathetic. Shopping only made me more angry.

Like I have posted to bevy here many times. I don't see her getting traction decisively or the support she or the issue cries out for. Hope has nothing to do with fighting for our lives. There are no retreats or lines to hide behind on this globe that will postpone the damage.

As a side note. Immediately after election day, my son had two job applications he had been waiting for outsourced to Italy and Israel respectively. Legislation before Congress or new laws will directly threaten my job, my pension, my social security. I consider that all paltry compared to what will come and is coming now to the more unfortunate.
