#Politics
Does he sound nervous to you? Or is he just rehearsing for if he loses?

doesnt count Corona fake votes fake news I would have won without the Corona virus I am still president I will not leave office

Can you imagine being nervous about potentially losing the election to a dementia ridden woman and child sniffer who has hairy legs?

I wanted to utilize patriotism and use the philosophy of peace through superior force. When the time is right... we will migrate that mentality. I wanted to decide strategy and introduce programs that further our goals. Working with a board of directors is an endeavor one should not back off from. We want to nurture these institutions lavishly, to server as the prototype for our goals. We want to condition desired attitudes about our future agenda and program a variety of emotions and responses into the collective unconscious. We have multiple mediums to utilize and to program the conditioning of the masses. E pluribus unum novus ordo seclorum Effective immediately, a new enforcement policy will be in place: one that is simple and easy to understand. Our previous administration dispersed the impetus for dissent, which resulted in complications. A new order will be set in place to prevent disarray. Our members will be conditioned to accept the implementations and the associations of a better country for all. By implementing a firm objective… dissenting voices cannot gain ground and we can vastly influence culture to achieve our prime objective. The concept of individual survival versus group survival breaks down the idea of community and breeds individuals who seek only their self-interest.

Got to give the guy credit for getting people's attention.

Delaying the election is pretty much off the table after the massive blow back from damn near everyone who saw this. He's not wrong about the voter fraud claims.

Given there's already enough stuff to suggest that mail and boating is exceptionally easy to cheat, yet the Democrats seem to be more than happy to push for exactly that, I think his concerns are valid.

To be quite frank, it seems like they are actively trying to do everything in their power to either cheat, or make the election as untrustworthy as possible, to try to get him out.
Giving we literally have anarchist terrorists trying to claim new sovereign territory, it's not exactly far fetched to say that there is high probability of a civil war regardless of the outcome of the election.

I'd suggest Trump wants to avoid that, as Trump actually likes America unlike the Democrat party

Honestly my BF keeps telling me about the election, but I'm at the point where I don't care.
I've essentially completely separated myself from the media on most topics because the amount of spin on everything is actually cancerous and impossible to deal with. The media has people acting so crazy that my own mother was harassed publicly and threatened because of difficulties with wearing the mask.

I'm just gonna wait for November and vote.
I will vote in person, and I think mail in voting is mostly a joke. All of those votings are honestly a joke and can't be trusted almost at all. For all I know a quarter of all voters in 2020 are an entirely newfound voting group that hasn't ever been tapped before effectively, dead-americans.

I'm at the same point pretty much. Its pretty well known that most of the media is bias lies and BS, so why even bother with it? If anything, it just makes it harder.
I listen to the radio for an hour in the am and an hour in the pm, thats been about the right amount.
Also, pretty sure thats the most solid voting bloc.

>>398189
If no one trusts the system itself, no one will ever trust the system that elects it.

>>398196
Its a trope that voter fraud is/can be done by using recently dead people who were registered to vote, and still on the rolls, and having other non dead people cast their ballots for them.

Also something i haven't had in over a decade haha.
I do hook up the rabbit ears from time to time though.
I mean, its not like im completely ignorant of goings ons, its just, i don't submerge myself in the words of every talking head as much as i once did.
I have a few special interests, like firearms, but there is just so much now, that it would be impossible to have a high level of awareness in every single subject.

I mean, is there any proof that this is an actual thing, though?

It always seemed like one of those things that some politician said it and it sounds like a super scary thing and democracy as we know it is over, without anything to back it up.

For all anyone knows, mail-in voting can be fraud, but also for all I know in-person voting could also be a fraud where the machine is just conveniently calibrated wrong and counts my vote for the wrong person.

I mean, it does happen
https://www.nbcnewyork.com/news/local/dead-voter-list-long-island-nassau-county-newsday/1958314/

To what extent is debatable.

I know where i live, its estimated that there are almost 200k names on our voter rolls than there should be.
https://www.providencejournal.com/news/20161025/voter-rolls-off-by-189000-in-ri-journal-analysis-finds

Dead people, people who moved away, people registered in 2 locations ect..

It would also be pretty foolish to assume that voting is some magical thing, where even though there is corruption in every single institution, that elections are somehow exempt from reality and benevolent.

Like i said, its a trope, i dont think smiles was trying to make some kind of factual specific claim, that she has hard evidence to prove, i think she was just using the colloquialism for humor in casual conversation. Asking for proof is like arguing that there actually is use crying over spilled milk haha.

Basically what MK said. It objectively does happen, but the level and effect is hotly debated, and also who does it more.
I'm not really complaining at this point, but it's just one of those sad realities that I was making light of.

Sometimes when i go to my moms house i turn on the tv for a little bit, and just about every time it makes me happy that I've never paid for the service.
Its so much money, and there really is nothing worth it to me being broadcast.
The couple of shows i do find to be good are on premium cable, which i would never pay for, but can also be found by other legal means.
Cable was sold on the premise that because you pay for the subscription it would be commercial free, yeah, that lasted all of a few years in the 80s haha. So, bow your paying every month and seeing adverts, and its mostly reruns.
So, the rabbit ears are worth it to have for local stations, and I've even considered buying a more legit antenna and getting boston stations, but i would never ever pay for cable tv.

It's why I am still there, our lab was in a tough spot, lots of people leaving and I was the last knowledgeable person willing to stick it out.

They revamped the lab to help retain people (better pay / advancement) and they're more actively delegating my old work to the newer/relatively experienced folk so I can take care of the roles for the new lab me and my immediate supervisor are starting.

It's a dry lab, dealing with cancer clinical trials at our hospital/cancer research center.

Basically our hospital has a fuck ton of patients getting their cancers treated, and almost all of them at some point go on a clinical trial, so we collect and send out tumor samples from our center to sites around the world for advancing clinical trials to treat / cure different types of cancer.

Mostly basements here, so you wouldn't have a problem.
Ocean front houses are required to be on stilts above historic storm surge too, so working on them is easy af.
I mean crawl spaces exist, but they are a very small minority. In all my years in HVAC i saw like, 2. Slabs also exist.

Doesn't ring a bell, so if they are up here its in a limited capacity.
Do they do urgent care centers and walk ins? Admittedly, im not up on which companies have domain of those up here atm.

nah, it's a christian run hospital corporation that's been buying out many of the older places in the area.

Maybe it's a Florida issue

I haven't heard of anything like that.

They're a corporation before anything, why pass up the chance to charge for a service or a treatment?

Fair enough. Just seems weird to put the Christian aspect front and center if you're not going to be acting in a way that is influenced by it.
Though i could see it being just advertising down there, up here indint think a religious association would draw in customers, would probably be more of a turn off tbh.
