Well, obviously DeJoyless is a Russian agent. And if Biden – the most qualified candidate to ever seek the presidency – is defeated by rumpface, well, obviously it will be the Rooskies’ fault. Let’s go ahead and get the narrative straight before November 3rd, shall we?
Oh look, it’s “unacceptable.” That’s sure to get DeJoy and DT to stop purposely slowing the mail…and getting away with it.
Where are the American heroes, the Navy SEAL snipers, when the country is actually on the line and they are needed.
There would be enough stress with an honest election. Trumpism puts the stress off the charts. They will lie and cheat to no surprise of the left, right up to Nov.3rd.
Michigan totally screwed up. It neglected to print a mailing code next to the place where the stamp should be affixed, that mistake causing the envelope to be returned to sender. Now they are saying not to mail in ballots at all, but drop them off. It does not look like this is an intentional mistake, but it might have an effect on the outcome of the election.
We need not get hyperbolic over Russian interference, but at least recognize what they ARE doing.
Otherwise it sounds a lot like ALL dems are bad.
At this point we all fear a stolen election.
Even the right-wing-nuts.
One way or another, Trump will not leave office, it is just a matter of what his M.O. will be!
I don’t think that the left exists in the U.S. to any meaningful extent, though wish it did. In my view, “the left” is not the same as “liberal” or “neoliberal.” Most center-left types fit one or the other. Perhaps the left exists in approx. the same number as do the Greens, i.e., too small to matter.
Dear Cahpdrum: I appreciate your distinctions within categories that under the most ideal conditions within the human condition would still be even more fluid than sexual orientation or within the human nature spectrum from “risky” to “cautious.”
When you think long and hard about the people you know best, even yourself if you are irrepressibly self-reflective and self-interrogative, when and how often does an ideology like “Left Wing\Right Wing” or “Liberal\Conservative” or “Neo-Liberal\Neo-Con compared to Classical Liberal\Paleo-Con” or “Secular\Religious” or “Scientific\Superstitious” or “Rational Materialist\Mystical Metaphysical” actually trump basic self-serving opportunism? When in our political life has ideology been tested against the competing allure of corruption?
I might’ve tipped my own belief system that is very skeptical of any ideology from “Capitalistic” versus “Socialistic” having more to do with a political leader’s legislative and policy actions. I am in total agreement with the Religious Left who believe that in a country that allows as much freedom to act directly as the U.S. allows those within our own borders (not counting the repressive client state elites like Guatemala, El Salvador or Honduras ruled for over a century via remote colonialism enforced by Death Squads backed by Washington or London) that every budget voted on from local\municipal on up through county, state and federal is a moral document of how we choose to prioritize our commitments to the least secure among U.S. Also, like the Social Justice Presbyterians and Universalists along with their far-flung activist fellow-travelers like the Israeli solidarity group Who Profits Dot Org that supports Palestinian autonomous state-building efforts, we each on an individual and also a communal level have an obligation to account for our own complicity in the actions of our elected representatives.
By that standard even a Biden\Harris victory over Trump\Pence\Mnuchin\Kushner in the upcoming Presidential elections does not fill me with any sense of accomplishment. After last night’s more temperate if no more nuanced policy debate broadcast nationally between the top-of-ticket candidates there remains no observable capacity for either aspiring political leader to take responsibility for their own track records in office and any relevant Public Service life outside of their business\political pursuits.
Neither aspiring political leader has walked U.S. through any re-thinking of the positions they’ve taken in our life-shattering and world-shattering lives as subjects to the Washington Empire since WW II. To hear Biden attack Trump on Law & Order issues an uninformed political novice would never know the public and private roles Biden played in his younger years that led to the U.S. living up to its nickname of MASS INCARCERATION NATION. Biden debated as a liberal after politically acting as a Privatizing Neo-Liberal\Neo-Con. Trump got elected in this nation of a fairly good by global standards public educational system and a Mass Communications Broadcast system surrendered to the Corporate Caliphate and their Weapons of Mass Distraction with no slim broadcast or cyber spectrum set aside to provide our faltering republic’s social institutions with any purely educational and Public Interest mission, insulated from market pressures.
Nearly all of our global competitors and rivals in markets, participatory politics and co-operative ventures (like science, trade, transport and education) have such a national broadcaster. No surprise that while each such competing rival nation-state may be far from any socio-economic utopia, the level of media savvy and political engagement as judged by their nation-state policy outcomes leaves U.S. in the dust over the course of the last 4 decades:

Bringing my absentee ballot to the post office tomorrow and sending it certified mail. It will cost more but will insure that my ballot gets to my County Board of Elections.
I suspect that there is some law under which DeeJay could be prosecuted for destruction of Federal property–not that Scummer or Peloser would care.
(Sorry about the snark, but I am beyond fed up with those two and all the rest of the un-democratic misleadership.)
Wouldn’t it just be easier to stuff Mr. DeJoy into a mailbox close to the wilderness area? : )
Who could forget what Biden did FOR Clarence Thomas and against Anita Hill and the other women who had been subjected to the Clarence Thomas acts of demeaning of so many women. .Maybe we should all mailThomas a coke can with a pubic hair on it-----give him something to do while waiting to impede the Constitution along with the Coney person.
This blatant ratfckery by DeJoy’s short reign of Hell at the USPS actually makes me feel sick to my stomach. And royally pissed off.
Greg Palast has chronicled many of the ways that the R’s are shaving off the votes (and voters); purge lists, lack of polling places, lack of mail boxes, bogus signature matching, voter ‘witnesses’, voter ID laws and now well and truly fcking up the mail-ballots.
What a shyte show.
Here in MN an actual senate seat may go to a total batshyte winger dinger 45 lover as the polls are showing a 1% margin between Tina Smith (D) and Jason Lewis (R-trumper). Yeah, that seat was once Al Franken’s…
I am damn glad that I voted early, in person.
Sickening - isn’t it Shan ~
I’m sure there is lots going on we still don’t know about.
Yeah, like sitting on a den of rattle snakes that you have not seen…yet!
We can bring back the pony express.
Post office hires thousands of unemployed.
Deliver all medicine first. Then Ballots.
In cities, use bicycles.
In rural, use Uber !!!
The headline should read “deliberate mail delays” created by DeJoyless, yet another criminal sabotaging voting on behalf of the Fuhrer.
