You certainly have strong opinions. I’m glad you posted. It tells me a lot about you in ways you might not realize.  I like getting to know people even when I don’t agree with everything they believe, and also when I do.

Thanks.  I probably should have written a longer criticism.  Trump deserves pages, if not chapters, of pure negative opinion.  I'm...not that good a writer, and even when writing longer pieces, I tend towards brevity.  I've probably short-cut Trump.  He's worse than I can write.

However.  I do read a lot, and this year for the first time in my life, I've made a point of investigating books written about political figures.  The books I've read reinforce my already-negative opinions about Trump, and I had hoped they would.  None of the books are directly about Trump, but he looms as a larger-than-life antagonist, touching everything and improving nothing.  He makes a great bad guy.  Maximum sleaze.

Well, you’ve made your point about him.  I know about half the people reading this agree with you and half don’t.

Maybe.  I don't think half of the participants in this thread are Trumpers, and the only full-fledged no-doubt Trumpers seem to be you and Walter.  It doesn't matter much to me, though.  For anyone who is convinced and past convinced they are right, being outnumbered is no longer a concern.  

~g~

You can tell your Trump buddies - all 70 million of 'em - I'm here.  I'm waiting for them.  One at a time or all at once...there isn't a thing they can say that can move me.  And maybe - you never know, but just maybe - a few other anti-Trumpers will show up.  Could be a real party.

Dirty political politics continue... arrested for not wearing masks where masks are not required!!! Go figure?!?!?!

BREAKING: GOP Election Worker ARRESTED For Not Wearing Face Mask During Training Session At Former TCF Center Where Face Masks Are NOT Mandatory!

DIRTY DETROIT ELECTION OFFICIALS ARE AT IT AGAIN…
 
100 Percent Fed Up Exclusive – The 2020 election put the former TCF Center on the map after dirty Detroit election officials were exposed for thug tactics that were used against GOP poll watchers to threaten and intimidate them.
 
The TCF Center has now been renamed Huntington Place.
 
In 2020, on the day after the election, GOP poll challengers were bullied, shouted down, and followed around the room by outside agitators. They were arrested and removed from the TCF Center by Detroit Police officers many times for not adhering to made-up rules by supervisors. There were no actions taken against Democrat poll challengers or outside agitators who appeared to be brought in to help Detroit election workers threaten GOP poll challengers and take them off their game.
 
Many of the GOP poll challengers left the TCF Center the day after the election on their own accord over safety concerns, while the majority of GOP poll challengers who left for lunch were locked out of the counting area. Inside the counting room, Democrats had a section with tables and chairs where their poll challengers and outside agitators could get water and food. The GOP poll challengers had to go upstairs to a room designated for the workers on the 2nd floor. When they arrived back at the counting room from lunch, they discovered the door to the counting room had been chained shut. Cardboard pizza boxes from the tables where Democrat poll challengers and outside agitators had just finished their lunch were used to cover the windows into the counting area so they couldn’t see into the room.
 
Of the small group of GOP poll challengers who remained in the counting room, several were eventually thrown out or arrested as paid election workers stood up and cheered. Many of the GOP poll challengers left on their own accord after an exhausting day of being forced to stand on a cold cement floor with no chairs available to them and afraid to leave the room over the fear of being refused entry back inside.
 
In 2020, hundreds of GOP volunteers applied to become election workers at the TCF Center in 2020, but most were rejected, as the applicants were forced to identify their party affiliation on the questionnaire.
 
In 2022, Republicans demanded they receive equal representation at the counting tables. More Republicans were allowed to train to become election workers this time, but as a condition, election workers were asked to adhere to arbitrary non-scientific guidelines around mask-wearing and COVID testing.
 
I spoke with a Republican who prefers to remain anonymous over safety concerns, who attended the training yesterday at Huntington Place. Although he was the first person in the room, he was given a spot at the counting table where he would play a minimal role, while a woman who was several spots behind him in line was placed at the critical location at the table where the authenticity of the ballots was confirmed. According to our source, 10 GOP election workers walked out of the training session two days ago after election supervisors bullied them for not wearing face masks.
 
In 2020, election supervisors threatened workers and had them removed for violating a 6-foot social distancing rule which prevented workers from getting close enough to see the ballots. Will the mask-wearing threat be the dirty Dems by their new tactic to remove GOP election workers in 2022?
 
In addition to forcing workers to wear useless face masks that even airlines no longer require, the City of Detroit Dept. of Elections is forcing trained election workers to provide a negative COVID test result from a reliable source. It will refuse COVID test results from home test kits. Because apparently, a negative result from a reliable testing center on June 29, as a condition to work on August 2nd (34 days later), will suffice.

They will do anything to cheat, then demand we accept the results. If they aren’t doing anything wrong, why harass people who are supposed to be there? They are trying to frighten people away from even being trained.

I just wish we could pin the "election fraud bullying" tag to what they're doing with penalties/consequences!!!

How many US states are limiting drop boxes for Midterms, and when will ballots be protected like money with watermarks and serial numbers?

While these things are of exceedingly importance, we must not forget about those voting machines. They do what they are programmed to do, and they do so in the dark, where observers cannot see.

What is your State/County doing to ensure our Midterms are secure?

A few states are but not all. Mine is not.
