Is it 2021 and Joe Biden is actually president and I don’t know about it?
Is Trmp* running against President Biden?
I am so confused.￼.
This is gaslighting of a higher order.
Joe Biden is a private citizen. He holds no office.
Joe Biden has absolutely no authority at this moment in time to affect anything.
At this moment in time, for better (or obviously worse) Trmp* is the president.
He’s in charge.
He owns all the unemployment.
He owns all the death from COVID-19.
(YES. He does. Because he and his minions are QUICK to use HiNI deaths as proof that Obama/Biden were EVIL, and should have no right to call out Trmp*.-all 13,000 of them. Which is about two weeks of COVID deaths that are still happening, that Trmp* owns but is trying to pawn off as a hoax.)
He owns every single death because of riots.
He owns every single protest.
These protests are not happening because Joe Biden is president.
These protests are happening WHILE Trmp* is president.
But, apparently, Trmp* will FIX IT ALL two weeks AFTER he wins
The riots, the looting, the fires, the death, the loss of jobs.
IT IS ALL ON TRUMPS CLOCK. He IS THE INCUMBENT.
“He will gladly pay you Tuesday, for a hamburger today,” am I right?
...99 bottles of beer, you take one down, you pass it around…98 bottles of beer on the wall. (there really is no substitute for the version sung with your cousins LOUDLY from the back seat and the way back seat on a long road trip in a station wagon, windows down, in the 1970’s)
Party like it’s 1999. I was dreamin’ when I wrote this Forgive me if it goes astray But when I woke up this mornin’ Could’ve sworn it was judgment day The sky was all purple There were people runnin’ everywhere Tryin’ to run from the destruction You know I didn’t even care Say say Two-thousand-zero-zero party over Oops out of time So tonight I’m gonna party like it’s 1999
99 Luftballoons. You and I in a little toy shop Buy a bag of balloons with the money we’ve got Set them free at the break of dawn ‘Til one by one they were gone Back at base bugs in the software Flash the message “something’s out there!” Floating in the summer sky Ninety-nine red balloons go by
What’s going on here? Oh, right. Yes, we’re down to double digits now!
You are running out of time to REGISTER to vote. To VERIFY you are REGISTERED to vote. To VERIFY your POLLING LOCATION HASN’T CHANGED since the last time you voted (It happens. A lot. Especially if you haven’t voted recently! If you didn’t vote since the last time you could vote for Obama in 2012, for example, your polling place may have moved from a tiny elementary school, to a lovely and airy new college campus building. AND during the pandemic, the powers that be have used COVID-19 as an excuse to close many locations)
MAKE sure you have as much valid identification as you can possibly scrounge up. THIS Election Day is NOT the time to argue that you should or shouldn’t have to show X, or Y, or Z form of ID.
That IS THE GOAL. To DENY you the opportunity to cast your vote. DO NOT THROW AWAY YOUR SHOT. Bring more than you need. Read up on what might be acceptable, and gather it.
You are running out of time TO REQUEST an ABSENTEE BALLOT. To MAKE A VOTING PLAN. Childcare, transportation, the expectation that IF you are planning to vote IN PERSON, that you could be there a LONG TIME. You can NOT plan to squeeze voting in between a meeting and a hair appointment.
(also, here… do you know WHAT signature they “compare” to verify your ABSENTEE ballot is acceptable?? Here in VA, it’s the one on your Drivers License…. and I am here to tell you, I don’t really write my signature exactly that way anymore. So, I WILL be looking carefully at my drivers license to make sure I am ok)
My voting location is in a HBCU (Historically Black College or University). I have registered for ABSENTEE, but if for some reason, I have to vote in person, BECAUSE I vote in a MINORITY DISTRICT I EXPECT there to be lines and confusion and other forms of voter suppression. I HAVE REQUESTED TUESDAY NOVEMBER 3, 2020 as a DAY OFF. If my ballot arrives as I hope, I will be able to just have a day off.
If not, well, you know where you will find me.
If you don’t feel that the USPS is a safe way to MAIL your vote, because maybe the Post Office will bag it up and leave it in a janitors closet until after the postmark is too late??— You can drop it off in PERSON… I can’t tell you WHERE. Come on. You are an adult reading this on the internet. Do some research. Contact YOUR Election commision.
One other really important bit. You ARE part of the problem if you vote THIRD PARTY this time. You dilute the actual vote totals when you protest vote. Vote for your uncle’s poodle in the primary, but in THIS election, the General Election of 2020, it’s not hyperbole to say the future of the COUNTRY as a DEMOCRACY is at stake.
Not having voted for either Trump or Biden will be small solace to you when you find your freedoms disappearing.
THIS ARTICLE ON VOTING is very detailed, long and important. Voting is NOT something you should think about Monday night, November 2nd.
