Some Observations and Thoughts Working on My First Election

Now that I’ve almost entirely recovered from the fatigue, fascination and horror of Election Day I’ve had a chance to reflect a little on what I saw and learned.

First off, it really was a fascinating experience.  Coming into direct contact with four or five thousand people, even if only briefly is stimulating and highly interesting.  Even if you’re for the most part only asking and answering questions you get a flavor for each soul you collide with.

And I would say the negative contacts were only in the range of a tenth of a percent.  I could count them all on the fingers of one hand.  And that’s a remarkably low percentage.  Possibly the majority of the participants were enjoying the experience.  Or maybe they picked up on my energy.  Because despite how exhausted I was by the fifteenth hour of my shift I was still energized by the whole thing.  My feet weren’t energized but my mind was.  It was fun.

However, that all ended when the doors were closed and the tabulation began.  Everything about the process of counting the votes is painful, annoying and subject to the vicissitudes of badly designed and easily malfunctioning equipment.  But at least in the case of the election team I worked with everyone went way above and beyond the call of duty to get the numbers accurately and expeditiously relayed to the Secretary of State’s office.  So, kudos to us.

Now I’ll apply what I learned on Tuesday to what is going on across the country now several days after the election in places like Arizona and Nevada.  The delays they are experiencing are on account of the mail in ballots.  Either they are waiting for a certain number of days for ballots mailed in on Tuesday to reach them (which seems idiotic) or they only started processing them after they finished the count of the normal ballots.

In either case this is either rank stupidity or an excuse to fabricate ballots to offset shortfalls by the candidate that’s supposed to win.  If it weren’t then there would be a requirement that all mail in ballots be mailed in a month before the election.  That way all of them would be received and processed before the election.  The fact that these states are allowing their elections to be dragged out for a week or more is malfeasance that necessarily robs the process of legitimacy in the minds of the voters.  By my way of looking at things this is hastening the break down of national cohesion.  This year, more than half of Americans already believed that the 2020 elections were illegally tampered with.  2022 won’t improve on things.

So, I’m struck by the paradox.  Here we have a population of people who expend time and emotional energy to vote in the hope that it influences how their government works.  And yet more than half of those people think that to some extent the selection of federal representatives is rigged.  How can that be reconciled?

Maybe it can’t be reconciled.  And maybe in the not-too-distant future something is going to change.  What’s the old saying?  The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different outcome.  Maybe we’re getting tired of acting crazy.

Arizona Law Requiring Proof of Citizenship to Vote Should Provide a Good Test of SCOTUS

This election season Dementia Joe and his evil minions will try to swamp the polls with illegal voters.  Arizona’s law attempting to prevent this abuse will be a test case to see if the “conservative” Supreme Court is worth the breath that’s been spent talking about it.  The law is sure to be challenged.  Either elections can be made to run fairly or we’re a banana republic.  Currently 2020 proved we’re a failed state but maybe, just maybe, there are still enough people left who want their freedom back to turn this thing around.  My proof that this can happen will be sixty new Republican seats in the House and ten more Republican senate seats.

I think that’s fair.

Zuckerberg Accused of Bribery in WI Vote Investigation

Wisconsin special counsel to the State Legislature found illegalities in the Zuckerberg financing of the 2020 election.

According to the report, Priscilla Chan and Mark Zuckerberg providing financing that allowed the Center for Tech and Civic Life to offer nearly $9 million in “Zuck Bucks” to Milwaukee, Madison, Racine, Kenosha and Green Bay counties. In exchange, the “Zuckerberg 5,” as the report called the counties, in effect, operated Democratic get-out-the-vote efforts. Those grant funds then paid for illegal drop boxes to be placed in Democratic voting strongholds.

The illegal use of drop boxes represented a second area of concern to the special counsel’s office. The report notes state election code limits the manner in which ballots may be cast, providing that an elector must personally mail or deliver his or her ballot to the municipal clerk, except where the law authorizes an agent to act on the behalf of the voter.”

So now the Wisconsin legislature has to address the results of the report but this will be in the face of obstruction from the Democrat Governor and Attorney General.  This should make the 2022 Wisconsin elections even harder for the Democrats.  I believe the Governor is already behind in the polls.

 

Guest Contributor – Chemist – 01MAR2022 – Texas Primary Election Day

Today is primary day in Texas. (Or if you are a republican in my town, the only voting day that matters.)

While voting an older man and his elderly, wheelchair bound, father came in.

The older man was irate that he didn’t get an absentee ballot for his father like in years past.

“Last three years, the ballot comes in the mail. This year – nothing.”

The clerk replied that you now have to request the ballot.

The older man countered that “Dad doesn’t do computers. How is he supposed to request one?”

The clerk told him that he could call for one and the man said this was a pain.

 

I wanted to jump in and say:

“Yup. Another thing the democrats fucked up for everyone.

After the wholesale cheating in 2020 we had to change the laws which make it more difficult for everyone, so thank a Democrat!”

 

But I kept my mouth shut.

DeSantis Will Push for a Florida Agency to Police Election Fraud

It’s like he’s reading my mind.  Which I guess just means he’s doing his job.  This is right on the money.  Don’t wait for the fraud to cost you an election.  Arrest the perpetrators in the act and prevent the problem.  Imagine if Pennsyvania had had a law like this when those bozos covered up the windows and excluded the poll watchers.  The cops could have dragged them away to jail instead of allowing them to steal an election.

Why the hell aren’t the rest of the Republican governors copying this stuff?  We need forty nine other guys just like him.

The Emptiest of Suits

I was casting about among the Roman emperors to try and find an equivalent for Biden.  But I couldn’t do it.  He has some of Caligula’s and Nero’s perversity but both of those psychopaths were much more honest.  While Tiberius was known to have a dissolute character, he was also a very able general.  No one could possibly accuse the Hero of Kabul of being that.  Even among the flotsam and jetsam of the fourth century I couldn’t find the right combination of greed, dishonesty, moral degeneracy and just downright stupidity needed to approximate Joe’s specialness.

So, I declared defeat and decided Joe was unique.  But there’s got to be a way of explaining how the formerly greatest nation on the face of the Earth is now headed by a lying, thieving, lecherous, imbecile.  One part of that is the fact that he was Obama’s vice president.  And that can be explained by saying that Obama is also a very dishonest man.  So, was part of Biden’s selection by Obama dependent on Joe’s willingness to share in the graft?  Probably so.  In that case I suppose it’s actually an advantage that he’s a moron.  After all, a smart crook is a lot more dangerous as a partner than a stupid one.  It wasn’t likely that Joe would bite the hand that fed him.  But how exactly does he get to be the President?

I think that the likeliest explanation is that it was an accident.  It was just the luck of the die.  Everything happened the way it did in an election year that the Democrats weren’t supposed to win.  And the pack of losers that Joe was up against were just so hopeless that his status as a former vice president meant they had to give it to him.  Of course, I think it’s assumed that the powers that be in the Democrat Party figured that since Joe is as bought and paid for as any man can be that even with his obvious deficiencies, they could still make his first term work for them.

But are things so far along the road toward banana republic that the people running the show don’t even have to pretend that the figurehead has a functional brain?  No one thinks that Biden writes his own speeches but he can’t even read his own speeches.  And the Biden administration has altogether dropped the pretense that this is a free country.  If parents complain about their school boards, the Attorney General of the United States publicly sets the FBI on them and declares them terrorists.  Think for a minute just how crazy that is.  What’s next, will snipers pick off the people chanting, “F*** Joe Biden” at a Virginia Tech football game?

So, what’s my point?  I guess I’m saying that we’ve crossed some kind of line.  Both sides are now aware that we’ve gone beyond what was an acceptable level of partisan arrogance.  This is now akin to what went on in Chicago when Al Capone owned the police and the mayor’s office.  Law enforcement corruption allows political enemies, even up to the President of the United States to be harassed and his cabinet members prosecuted for imaginary crimes.  Joe Biden was given the presidency as a payoff for his decades of service as a bought man.  He will mouth whatever they ask and he will do whatever they order him to do.

And the longer this goes on and the more extreme the behavior the more certain that it will require at some point, a complete break with representative government.  In order to ensure against an extreme reaction to the takeover it will be necessary to tighten control over everyone outside of the oligarchy to an extreme degree.  To do that will require something akin to the totalitarian methods that were seen in Soviet Russia or East Germany.  And in retrospect, we’re really not that far from that point now.

But let me get back to the original point of this post.  It’s the insult being added to the injury.  Making Joe Biden president is an insult that is hard to overstate.  It could be argued that if they had made an orangutan or a chimpanzee president it wouldn’t have been that much worse.  In fact, apes are relatively personable, at least if they’re behind unbreakable glass and can’t fling their feces at you.  And speaking of which, how much longer will Joe be trusted not to do that?

After Months of Delays by Fleeing Dem Reps Texas Election Reform Bill Signed

Texas has taken a giant step toward eliminating election fraud.  Greg Abbott finally was able to sign into law a Texas law that prohibits such fraudulent activities as mailing out absentee ballots to everyone regardless of whether they asked for one or not.

Now if only this was in place in places like Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Michigan and Georgia.

Chemist I’ve finally got the story right!

 

 

 

 

New York City Mayoral Election Count Turns Into a Farce

While trying to finish the counting of an election that happened last Tuesday the city Board of Elections outraged the front-runner and anyone else who thought this would be a straight forward process. They announced that they had mistakenly included 135,000 test vote records in an initial tally and now need to go back and straighten everything out.

Uh huh.  Sure that’s what you’ll do.  Anyway, since it’s all Democrats who cares anyway?  But the law and order candidate Eric Adams who was in the lead by a lot is very unhappy with what’s going on and since he’s a black man I have to assume that the rules of critical race theory demand that the next mistake goes in his favor.

Hilarity is sure to ensue and who knows maybe this breathes new life into the campaign hopes of Paperboy Love Prince.

Stay tuned for the blow out finish.
