  • Shocking North Carolina Early Vote Nugget

    I have been posting daily reports on North Carolina early voting numbers. Based upon a review of the numbers, I think it is probable that Trump will win NC by double the 3.8 points he won by in 2016. Check out this golden nugget in the North Carolina early vote numbers: 2016—per CNN exit polling, 70% of the 2016 NC electorate was white, 30% non-white. Breaking this 70% white NC vote down by education: 37% of 2016 NC white voters had a college degree, 30% did not have a college degree. 2020—73% of the current early votes are by white...
  • Vanity: Need some FR account/profile tagline HELP!

    10/29/2020 9:43:32 AM PDT · by DJ Frisat · 40 replies
    Hi -- been around here since about 1998, and comment somewhat frequently, so I'm not exactly a newb, but find myself in need of some forum help. Specifically, I want to change my tagline. I used to have one that I liked, but it somehow got changed. I changed it to what shows up there now several years ago, but would like to change it again, and I can't find where it's stored in my profile or account. (Tried to use search to find it, with no luck...) Is it as simple as: Change it when writing a reply to...
  • Two 'Wisconsin Vote' Post Cards Received - For My Deceased Father! (Vanity)

    Just wanted to share. I received TWO post cards yesterday, my address, but addressed to my Dad, who died in May! One is from St. Louis, MO and the other from Carol Stream, IL. Both hand-written. 'Paid for by Indivisible Chicago Alliance' so you know it's Dems sending them. One sounded threatening: "Thank you for being a voter! Who you vote for is secret but whether you vote is public information. After the election, Tues. Nov. 3, local organizations may follow up with you on your voting record." ~ Theresa This one sounded like typical Socialist Democrat blathering: "We do...
  • Political Nervous Breakdown

    10/28/2020 6:15:15 PM PDT · by redheadedshannon · 111 replies
    I have been (for reasons not completely understood to me) regularly reading an absolute jackass Never Trumper columnist - Allahpundit over at Hot Air. He claims to be a conservative- but always appears to be rooting for the opposition. He despises Trump & routinely posts polls, surveys, articles & anecdotes about how Trump is losing disastrously this election. I've let this idiot crawl into my head. I had this same sort of feeling 4 years ago & posted a similar thread. What do you truly feel is likely to be the outcome of this election? Not your hopes or fantasies-...

    Wall Street Journal ^ | 10/28/2020 | Me
    Go to wsj.com and search wsj.com. Not a single mention of his explosive interview last night, and the mountains of proof he provided. Indeed there not a single actual news story which so much as mentions the name Bobulinski. The WSJ news staff are all democrats and they are blocking any mention of his name. The editorial staff is generally conservative and they have mentioned him but mostly in opinion pieces critiquing the media. Therefore the Wall Street Journal is not a newspaper since they are actively suppressing actual news. They, like other media sources, have become a local office...

    We're way past "normal" times, but in any world that remotely resembles "normal", Bobulinski came with enough credibility, facts and receipts to bury Joe Biden's Presidential campaign six feet below the surface of the Earth. Dates, times, names, texts, emails, . . . The most explosive part to me was the revelation that Hunter Biden was acting as Ye Jianming's personal lawyer even as Ye, as chairman of the Chinese CCP-linked energy company "CEFC", was negotiating the purchase of a 14% state in Russia's state-owned energy company. If that's not somehow treasonous, I don't know what would be. But there's...
  • (vanity) Has a Republican president ever been upset?

    10/27/2020 11:54:06 AM PDT · by JoanSmith · 126 replies
    Has there been a case where a Republican was expected to win the presidency, and the nation was surprised/flabbergasted by the election of the Democrat candidate? I am hearing lots of liberals express genuine fear/anxiety about the upcoming election (in contrast to 2016 where they assumed victory). I see the liberal fear and anxiety as a good thing, as it indicates they know (whether consciously or unconsciously) they are greatly outnumbered. Of course I plan to vote, on November 3rd, in person. Just wondering how the current 'feeling' in America relates to previous examples.

    Tomorrow, Senator Harris is going to Huston Texas to try and tell lies about ending fracking and drilling for oil on federal grounds and waters. Both Biden and Harris have repeatedly promised that on day one of their administration they will end all fracking and oil leases on federal lands and waters. Harris is going to lie about it and every republican candidate in Texas is going to play video of both She and Biden saying those exact words. Senator Harris will be caught in her lies and most of the citizens of our nation will see her lies over...

    Jitarth Jadeja was already deep into conspiracy theories when he first heard of Q. One day in December 2017, he tuned into Infowars, the media outlet run by the conspiracy theorist Alex Jones. Two guests on the radio show were talking about the "calm before the storm," a reference to an absurd theory that President Donald Trump will soon wage a secret war against a cabal of Satan-worshiping pedophiles and a slew of other evildoers. It's one of the many tall tales believed by followers of the movement called QAnon, ranging from the false claim that the government created vaccines...

Well she gets mad at me and follows us and keeps honking the the horn, we go past where my apartment is, so she does not know where my apartment is, and we stop, and all of the sudden this black guy shows...

    No way we can compete with that. We can only thank God for term limits. If you all can't acknowledge his pied-piper-like talent you're naive. It's Sam Cooke/Tom Brady. Timing and speech inflection. Suave, the looks and sophistication. Plus he kept his pants on around of all those women who wanted to take theirs off in front of him. Didn't have to work hard and didn't want to. He just had it whereas Trump does 3 rally a day-hard work.
  • NYC (Manhattan) Early Voting Report

    Self ^ | 10/24/2020 | Self
    Thought I'd report what I've observed in Manhattan today. Early voting started and at one particular location, on the Upper East Side, the line to vote has encircled the entire building from around 10 a.m. until now - so, two street and two avenue blocks, entirely. Yes, there is "social distancing" but this is unbelievable (someone said it takes about 5 hours to vote). On the assumption that the voting pattern for the neighborhood holds, one has to wonder what is motivating these people, their candidate (really??) or pure hatred of POTUS? In any event, I did not expect this.

    "To be ignorant of what occurred before you were born is to remain always a child." -Cicero Unfortunately, with every election cycle, a growing percentage of the electorate know nothing of socialism's evil because of when they were born, when their teachers were born, and because of the gaslighting that has shut down all critical thought. Give your kids a crash lesson in the evils of communism at the "Communism at 'Peace'" website. Show them that even revered groups such as gays, native Americans (yes, native Americans), and unions were crushed under communism's thumb. Or if they have time for...

    I posted this thread to focus on a mostly ignored state so far in the presidential/Senate/House race discussions. The Rocky Mountain State. No Trump rallies have come through here recently, which is curious to me given Sen. Cory Gardner's vulnerability and the fact that Trump only lost CO by <3 points four years ago. Plus AZ and NM border CO. So why the silence? Ground game: (Jul 2020 excerpt) The ground operation of the combined Republican campaign in Colorado — which goes by the team name "Silver Bullet Brigade" — dwarfs the GOP's field organization in previous cycles, with 46...
