Teh Squeaky Wheel
Snarling Pudgy Puppeh greetin’s, GN!
I appreciate that both my computers and cell phone adjust to the time change with no intervention on my part. And that I could set an alarm on my phone without any fuss last night; enjoyed the “extra” hour of sleep. 😉
Despite the lack -- insofar as we were aware -- of Trick Or Treat prohibitions locally, we had zero urchins demanding tribute last night. SAD!
OTOH, we’ve got a stash of decent candy. (Most of which I suspect will be thrown-out sometime before Christmas similar to last year; nevertheless…)
While the below image is crude, it made me LOL IRL (as I can see Trump actually doing such a thing and I kinda wish that he would).
Good morning, Fatwa -- happy Sunday, GN. Today is Mrs Sven’s “30th” birthday -- I’ll throw a beef brisket in the crock pot and then we will head to the polls. And presents -- a virtual trove of Capodimonte awaits my wife.
Wish Mrs. Sven a very happy birthday for me! I hope your brisket and voting are both successful!
Watching the Trump rallies, I hope that the happy warriors gathering for Trump rallies will continue on regardless of this week’s outcome.
A blessed Sabbath, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, Fatwa, and Sven!
We had ten kids stop by last night, demanding candy. A group of six, and a group of four. Fortunately, Mrs. Paddy only bought one largish bag, and doled it out generously, so we won’t have it sitting around long.
I’m heading over to my MiL’s in a few hours to clean her fountain and set the time on her clocks.
Hi, Sven and Paddy!
Happy 30th Birfday i/VII to Mrs. Sven!
One can only hope the Capodimonte will be used for plinking. 👿
May teh fountain-cleaning and clock-resetting take very little effort on your part.
So If my car is stopped on a public street or highway and surrounded by masked men and women carrying weapons, pounding on my car, attempting to get in, and screaming threats and insults, that’s not really a police matter, but this is?
“The FBI is investigating a “Trump Train” incident from Friday, in which a Biden campaign bus was surrounded by a dozen pickup trucks driven by Trump supporters as it traveled down a Texas interstate, according to a report.”
I saw several headlines trying to claim Trump supporters tried to run the bus off the road but it was obvious if they wanted to stop or herd the bus they could easily have done so. One clip I saw from the opposite side of the one you shared showed a small white car try to push aside a black pick up behind the bus and it got shoved back. I think they tried to show that as an attack as well. Really lame.
One guy in your clip claimed this is what Trump supporters do. I missed the reports, how many windows were broken, fires started, stores looted, people beaten, police assaulted? I guess he was right, that is the big difference between Trump and Biden supporters. But Trump supporters are the Brownshirts?
Well, Hawaiian shirts actually -- you know, the boogaloo boys.
Back from voting -- went to the Ronald Reagan Library to cast our votes. We could have just dropped off our mail-in ballots there, but opted to wait in line to do it the way we’ve always done it. Slow process tho and it took about 90 minutes all told. Talking to the people in line, no Biden supporters or Newsom lovers there. Many people did not like the idea of mail-in or ballot drop offs and were suspicious of the whole thing.
Interesting too. You do have to sign an affidavit requesting a new ballot and affirm hat you aren’t voting twice, but you do not have to turn in your old ballot. The delay in moving people through is that they only print a new ballot for every person as a new person “requests” one and they only had one printer -- apparently all in-person voting stations only get one printer -- at least according to the poll workers. I can understand not printing them ahead of time as the way the polls are you got people coming in from all over the county with different ballot needs, but only one printer?
Glad your voting went well. It sounds like they’re trying to make in-person voting as inconvenient as possible (first they got rid of the neighborhood precinct polling place) to make you want mail-in voting.
I agree, it does.
So much easier to discard or fake those mail in ballots. You just can’t trust voters to vote the right way these days.
