And now abides these three things you cannot tax, Churches, sports and giant companies, but the greatest of these are the companies. For it requires an even higher level of blind faith to trust in them.

“A Democratic sweep that puts Joe Biden in the White House and the party back in the Senate majority would produce 7.4 million more jobs and a faster economic recovery than if President Trump retains power.”

Remember when the State Dept rescinded an award to a Finnish journalist but said it had nothing to do with her criticism of Trump? The inspector general determined that it, umm, what’s the best word? Ok, fine: It lied.…

I've been driven to the point I think human extinction isn't a bad idea. It's probably God's plan, too. I think He's given up trying to get us to fucking listen.
Kenny, unbridled corporations are a virus on the earth.

So, in other words, Facebook suspects / expects unrest and even violence during the election. Facebook knows that it's allowing gasoline to be sprayed onto the developing conflict. But, they promise to turn off the gasoline after it explodes.

That's very nice of them. I'd like to know how they plan to do that, exactly -- vet and regulate millions of users and fake bot accounts. Shut down the whole platform?
A bit late if the chaos has started....

Actions should be taken before hand to limit destructive exchanges, and sharing of destructive information.
Unless it's your intention to foment that chaos and unrest.
We all know that chaos tends to incite people to spill lots of virtual ink, as it does for real ink. Moore visitors/viewers, more selling of advertising... :(
Yes, indeed. I believe this is why the media / newspapers in the USA gave Trump a lot more support than he deserved. They knew he would be a nightmare for the country, but would provide an endless torrent of controversy and scandal for them to talk about.
@Phil Landmeier (ᚠ) You don't have to believe, they've said it out loud. Then-CBS CEO Les Moonves speaking at the Morgan Stanley Technology, Media, and Telecom Conference on February 29, 2016:
Man, who would have expected the ride we’re all having right now? This is pretty amazing…. Who would have thought that this circus would come to town?

But, you know—it may not be good for America, but it’s damn good for CBS, that’s all I got to say.

So what can I say? It’s—you know, the money’s rolling in, and this is fun.

Scott's bill forces counting to stop at 24 hr, regardless how many ballots outstanding. States cant possibly change laws, buy new equipment, etc in time, so would cause massive disenfranchisement. Possibly render some states unable to vote in federal races at all this year.
Just split the votes into two piles, one for Biden and one for Trump, and you start counting Biden's votes first.

Let's be clear: Donald Trump is nakedly talking about committing a coup, and winding up his worshippers to support him.

10 Things to Stop a Coup

Best to be prepared for the worst possibility, while hoping and acting for the best.
Thank you.

I ate a bag of black licorice on a long drive once. I was not a happy camper by the end of that trip. I can't imagine eating a bag and a half per day! I am shocked that 2 ounces daily could lead to heart arrhythmia though.

I like them in general, but only a few and not every time. This might somehow be a Darwin Award candidate
I like them, and even better when covered with dark chocolate. But I wouldn't eat that many all at once!

Meanwhile, turns out some humans do still give a shit, and just won't stop trying to save humanity from itself.

It is now clear the Obama-Biden administration attempted to frame @realDonaldTrump and his administration for crimes created by crooked FBI and DOJ officials.

It’s about time to prosecute the real criminals.

The End of ICE

No, no, not that ICE. A different ICE.

Well, well. There it is. Europe has already been moving in this direction. As usual, California leads the way to the future in America.

Governor Newsom announced that as of Jan 1, 2035, it we be illegal to sell gasoline or diesel powered vehicles in California. Since California is, by far, the largest auto market in the USA, this will drive it. After all, today's low-pollution, high MPG, safe, seatbelt-equipped, airbag-equipped vehicles are all a result of California leading the way and forcing Detroit to improve its products.

By the way, Ford Motor Company chimed in, in full support of Newsom's announcement, saying they were already in the process of electrifying their most popular products, including the F-150. yeah - it's interesting the level of coordination in the shift to unleaded. I remember they made the pump nozzles a different size, so you couldn't put leaded in the newer cars. (had to double-check that). Regarding the California situation - I can remember when the fog in San Francisco was smog - a nasty yellowish color. People outside of the state don't realize how much exhaust accumulates in the valleys, creating a toxic brew. I haven't heard the latest, but I recall that the current administration rescinded the exemption that let California set their own standards. Even if the US decides to lower standards, the rest of the world is moving forward.*
*Australia seems to have low standards for air quality... I worked for a few months as a school crossing guard. On the days with no breeze, you really notice the difference between clean and dirty diesel engines, cars that aren't visibly smoking but by smell are obviously burning oil, and it seems many cars emit a significant amount of vaporized fuel out the exhaust before the engine is warmed up.
All true. And yes, both gas and diesel engines have to run a rich mixture until the engine warms up. With computer controlled engines in cars, it's much less than in the 1960s and 70s.

Here's a funny fact, my Toyota Corolla outside could run on the exhaust from my "hotrod" back in the day. Yeah. Hahaha.

You've probably seen a big diesel like a semi-tractor or locomotive cold-start and emit a large amount of white fog from the exhaust for a couple of minutes as it warms up. That white fog is unburned diesel fuel. Sometimes you get lucky and the fog will ignite with a big flame-front -- WHOOSH! Hahaha.

WATCH: A @PortlandPolice officer walks up to a man and violently shoves him to the ground. The man was slowly walking with his back turned to the officer. If a protester had done this it’s felony assault. Proud of this, Commissioner @tedwheeler?

The president's latest tweet promoting vote-by-mail in Florida shows all of his previous claims about mail-in voting are ludicrous lies. He promotes it when he thinks it helps him. He yells fraud when he thinks it hurts him.

Trump’s refusal to commit to the peaceful transfer of power is the behavior of a desperate would-be dictator who’d cling to office even if it meant destroying our democracy.

It’s pathetic. But because he is the president, we should take his threat seriously.
He's not a "would be" yet.

Unprecedented and unpresidented. Once again using taxpayer money in some hair brained scheme to buy leverage in his election scheme. SMH.

In mid 2016, after it was reported that FB “suppressed” conservative news, a top staffer for a powerful House Republican told me he knew bias was not the issue—it was that conservative sites peddled junk news. Many GOP lawmakers knew this, he said, but would never tell voters.

this desk fan is 85 years old and still running strong. how would YOU design an electronics gadget to last 100 years? what components would you use? what potential failures would you expect?

bonus: how would you make it last 200 years? how about 500 years?

Donald Trump is reported to be deeply indebted to the Bank of China, through a real estate debt which falls due in 2022, offering “astonishing leverage” to Beijing. This is deeply disturbing, to say the least.
I think this whole administration is about his attempts to increase his income to pay off his debts after all the banks stopped loaning him money.
Watch this Lincoln Project TV broadcast where Miles Taylor, his forrmer DHS Chief of Staff, laid out that's *exactly* what it is and why he supports autocrats.

I am a former Trump supporter. I no longer fear Dems, I no longer fear Muslims, I no longer fear #. Journalists are not the enemy. I support the limited government of women having the say so when it comes to their reproductive rights. I am voting for Joe Biden.
I don’t hear any support or outcry on how the indigenous Americans have or still are being treated. Shocking treatment towards them.
Yep that too for sure. He only had 280 characters. There are a lot of things he could have included in there with infinite space.

A pro-Cornyn Super PAC is using a photo of my tattoos to make me seem "radical." That's pretty funny to me.

You think I'm ashamed of them? They cover my shrapnel wounds from when my helicopter was shot down. They're a mark of my service to our country. I'm damn proud of them.
