Note:Updates are added at the bottom of the post over the course of the day.
Well here we go. No matter how confident you may feel about the results of the upcoming elections you’re probably a little nervous about what will be going on for the next week or more. And so am I. I’m fairly certain the President will be re-elected relatively easily but fairly certain and sure are not the same thing. Also, based on the actions of the woke lunatics infesting the cities around the country I’m pretty sure there will be at least a certain amount of bedlam and violence happening, especially if the polls show Trump winning. As soon as that happens these creeps will go ballistic, especially in their strongholds like Portland and Seattle. I expect there will be a certain number of murders and lots of arson and looting for sure. And the Democrats and their army of crooked lawyers and judges will sow confusion and attempt to outright steal any states that aren’t strong enough to defend themselves. And the Supreme Court will be the epicenter of the battle and John Roberts is a spineless loser who will do his damnedest to hurt our side.
But what I think is good advice is to try to keep the excitement level a couple of notches below maximum, so instead of eleven dial it back to seven. It will be a long night for sure and it might even be a very long week of distressing news regardless of how well the election goes. The world is full of very bad people and they will be looking to rattle our side as hard as they can. And of course, the media is going to spin everything they can as negatively as they can for as long as they can.
I’m off this week and so as a way to keep morale up I intend to keep this as an open post going all the way through election day and even beyond if it is warranted. I’ll try to combine election results, links to important or entertaining news along with my always witty and penetrating insights. Anyone who has comments is, as usual, welcome to chime in with relevant or entertaining discussion. I’m especially interested to hear about local conditions where you are. Anything you find interesting about things going on during the election is exactly what I’m looking for.
So, let’s hope it ends like it did in 2016 with a river of progressive tears washing away the mounds of inaccurate polls and their howls drowning out the words of the talking heads trying to explain how they got it so wrong. But even if it is a long confusing time of disputed election results and screeching progressives threatening to summon the military if their claims about disputed results aren’t honored immediately and unconditionally, remember to keep calm and look at the big picture. There is no guarantee that elections will work in our favor every time or even at all. The important thing is to be looking at how to prevent the Left from impacting you, your family and friends. That’s something you can work on when we’re winning or losing. And be willing to share a laugh or a kind word with anyone on our side that you meet here or elsewhere.
Best of luck to President Trump and the other folks on our side who are about to get on the roller coaster that is Election Day 2020. And best wishes to all of us. And as an old tv show used to say, “be careful out there.”
11:30 A.M. Update – Just got back from voting. My little town turned out in phenomenal numbers. The lines were epic. But it was truly fun getting out and doing something useful. One amusing event happened in line. About two people behind me in line was this twenty something kid with a sort of goth persona; dyed black hair, black clothes, and the palest skin I’ve seen in years. As we got close to the front of the line a middle aged woman comes out of the exit door and the young guy yells out have you voted for Joe Biden today. She made a face like he had said something vile and exclaimed “Hell no!” I almost burst out laughing but just chuckled a little instead. I’ll have to say that restored my faith in humanity. Even here in the belly of the beast, New England, there are plenty of good people left.
12:54 P.M. Note: I’ve been sent an invite for a 9 pm zoom to serve as a remote election party. Camera Girl has agreed to bake some pizza pies for me so I can have a reheat-able food available as the long night wears on. She also plans to studiously ignore the goings on. She is one of those benighted people who takes no interest in politics. She claims I am responsible for taking care of that. Ah well, she is making the pizza after all. What social provisions is everyone else doing for this momentous event? Is it mostly a solitary one for you?
3:22 P.M. – News Headline – Pelosi Calls Amy Coney Barrett an ‘Illegitimate Supreme Court Justice”
Can you imagine any normal person being called illegitimate by Nancy Pelosi. At this point I don’t think Pelosi even qualifies as a living human. As far as I can tell she’s now one of the undead. The only question is whether she can qualify as a vampire if her sustenance is gin instead of blood. Please Nancy stay in your crypt, your scaring the children and Halloween is officially over.
7:03 P.M. – Trump wins Kentucky. No surprise there.
7:33 P.M. – So far all the numbers are what you’d expect. Some networks have already called VA for Biden with 0% counted. But that’s probably a safe state to call for the Dems. The interesting ones for us will be the Carolinas and Georgia. If those go well it will bode well for the rest of the night.
7:55 P.M. – I was listening to Fox News but there are just too many progs there to make it enjoyable. If anyone knows of a better live discussion let me know.
8:02 P.M. – SC was called for Trump. Not a big surprise, but encouraging.
8:09 P.M. – Maryland, Connecticut, Delaware, Illinois and Massachusetts just got called for Biden with the usual 0%. No surprises.
8:18 P.M. – Fox is saying that Trump looks like he is winning in Florida in unexpected places (Miami/Dade).
8:40 P.M. – Florida seems like it may be an easy win for Trump.
9:40 P.M. – The betting odds have now shifted to Trump.
10:10 P.M. – Everything seems to be going our way. Fingers crossed.
10:51 P.M. – It looks like PA is shutting down the counting probably because Trump is so far ahead.
1:33 A.M. – So the crooked state officials are withholding the totals in PA and several other locales. We’ll have to wait until the daylight to see how these criminals try to steal the election. To be continued.
9:55 A.M. – Shennanigans seemed to have ensued. Lawyers will have to sort this out. But without a doubt MI looks like it will be needed.
