Thank you, America.

Yay! They listened.

The resounding throngs

  1. I hope so. After he put a halt to it, they’re still being dismantled. When I reordered my dad’s perscripts, the mail-order company said it’s going to take longer for them to arrive. But our voices did make a difference. 🙂

        1. Somewhere along the way, we devalued civil discourse and deleted civics classes. Tolerance became subservient to the self-righteousness of the fearful. And then came the Fear-Stoker in Chief.

          Yes, the super majority is the unstoppable majority.

      1. On the other hand, Vote.org has the details about voting by mail for every state, plus a simple interface for filling in most (not all) of the info required to apply for an absentee ballot.  Then the voter can download the form as a PDF file, add a little info and a signature, and mail hard copy to the appropriate board of elections.  For NYS at least, they did a good job.  The efforts of groups like Vote.org are a partial workaround for the combination of pandemic and USPS sabotage.  Whether they are enough to prevent Rethuglicans from stealing the election remains to be seen.

        1. This year, all CA voters have been contacted to confirm their registration information, and we have same-day registration. We will also each receive mail-in ballots with the option to request ballot tracking from when it is mailed, received, and counted. Unless there is a deliberate Republican effort to defraud the system, I think it will be just as difficult to prove voter fraud — for lack of any — as it as always been.
