Election Day should be a national holiday...or on Saturdays!

In California voters can check online to make sure their ballot has been received.

I pick up and drop off my ballot at City Hall. So not a lot of transit

Apparently, in TN you can NOT drop it off in person. It has to be mailed. I guess they figure that if you can go there to drop it off, you can go there to vote.

I wonder if anyone in TN has considered the time difference in dropping off a ballot in person and voting in person. It's an assumption, but my guess there is a bit of a difference.

Early voting is the way to go.  Avoid all the lines!

Pence was just named the head of our revamped space program. 

He's probably a flat-earther.

BRIAN MILLER: He's probably a flat-earther. 

He definitely believes in intelligent design. If you believe in ID you have to reject all aspects of science that led to a space program and allowed it to make any achievements. But heck, maybe we can get to Mars on "God did it".

I figured it out. Last night, it came to me how the whole god damned scenario is going to play out.

The Republican party is going to assassinate Donald Trump.

Not tomorrow... not next week. But at some point, critical legislation will be coming up, and Trump will have said something really stupid (talk about on-the-job experience...). 

Some group of Republicans will arrange an assassination. An explosion, a poisoning, a car wreck, maybe a sniper... something.

The results will be overwhelmingly in their favor:
1) President Pence
2) A great chance to blame the lunatics, the "violent" left, someone, to establish that the Republicans are the good guys in this undeclared war.
3) A legacy motivation, similar to 9/11 (not to compare the two events... just the effects.) "Donald J. Trump would have wanted this bill to pass / these people to be thrown out of the United States / this government law enforcement group to start working covertly against the citizens of the U.S."
4) A martyr to keep the Republicans re-elected.
5) The way to finally get Donald Trump to shut up and stop screwing the Republicans by his puerile and insensitive and insensible tweets and comments.
6) An occurrence that even Democrats won't be able to raise objection to - so the Republicans hope.

The issue will arise when the Republicans will think they are clever and will get away with it - until someone breaks faith to save their own Republican ass when an investigation begins.

I DO think that a number of high ranking Republican officials are that bloodthirsty and scheming. I DO think that a lot of people will see what happened, and taking it at face value, canonizing Saint Donald... 'scuse me, had to wipe a little vomit off my keyboard.

That's the horror that I see in the near future. And damn Donald Trump if his every tweet doesn't seem to make it easier to believe this...

Pence will have to take repeated showers because he thinks the moon might be a woman.

In the spirit of the thread and acting gubernatorial, Chris Christie is the greatest politician of our time

During his first full day of a 3-day trip to Europe for the G-20 Summit of the world’s large industrial economies, Trump blamed former Pres. Obama for failing to stop Russian interference, as well as the intelligence agencies themselves, and of course trashed the "fake news" US media... on foreign soil..!!!  *sigh*

-C!

You do know that Poland shipped in people more "appreciative" of Trump for his speech today, right?  

"Many in the crowd, which Warsaw police estimated at 15,000, said they had come from distant cities and towns in buses organized by the country’s populist ruling Law and Justice party."

I know nothing will come of this any time soon, but I'm still glad it happened.
