Wasn't there a thing a little while back with the republicans putting up illegal ballot boxes??  I swore there was.  Must have actually been dems tho.



To be clear, that wasn't about cheating on the number of votes, that was about the GOP offering an opportunity for Republicans to drop off their ballot with someone they know and trust.

California law doesn't allow them to do it the way they did.

That's how the California Republican Party responded to the allegations.

The state of California feared that ballots could be selectively disposed of, and advised anyone who put a ballot in the unauthorized boxes to use the state website and verify that their vote was counted.

But ballots are sealed by the time they get to the election boxes.  It would be advantageous to Biden if republican friendly ballots were disposed of.

Sealed, yes, but identifying information is on the outside, and they could dispose of ballots cast by registered democrats.

I'm just repeating what the California officials said.

You have to admit it is rather strange for one party to put up fake official ballot boxes. I doubt there was a shortage of real ones.

It's so funny to watch you mentally challenged trump supporters cry and whine about voter fraud that didn't happen, and there is no evidence for. You lack the mental capacity to think for yourselves so just regurgitate the nonsense that trump shites out of his mouth. Trump lost, he's a loser, like his supporters, deal with it.

all the dunces who support trump, are so crippled with insecurities that they have to call people "sheep" to feel like they're superior. It's classic projection; narcissists like him lack the intelligence for self awareness, so they accuse everyone else of being stupid, or brainwashed. In reality, they're just regurgitating the nonsense their cult leaders feed them, whilst not really understanding what they're actually talking about.
They're akin to flat earthers, climate deniers, keto cultists etc. By doing the opposite of society, and denying logic, reason, science, and evidence, they fool themselves into thinking they're woke, special, and superior to everyone else. They've got it all worked out and everyone else is stupid...

Having said that, it is damaging to democracy and the general civility of society for him to keep acting like he won.  But is not insurmountable damage.  ....  They should be mocking him, because he is a joke.  ...




.    He could not have done all the damage he did without the complicity, of hundreds of people in government, and some dozens of insiders. He is so disgusting this seems to be often forgotten, or completely overlooked.
.  This is significant because it means that once he is gone, much rot at high levels of government will remain, and will limit the repairs that one would hope for.
.  So no he was not a dictator like Stalin who could murder and torture opponents. He did not have the power of even a Mafia boss, but his attitude was & still is basically that of a gangster. That he had a following of scoundrels is also typical of gangsters.
.    That the USA has reached a point where such a person is felt to be a hero by many, is a real human tragedy, but not unique.
.  The economy of the US has been so destroyed that there is vast persistent anger in the hearts of thousands. The movies about Bonnie and Clyde document a similar phenomenon, in depression times, in the US, and of course the most familiar example is the rise of the Nazis, in economically devastated Germany, post WWl.
.    It seems to me that due to this rage, and generally poor education (especially as regards the humanities), that civility was lost in the USA long ago -- if the ever was any in "the home of the brave" and land of the lynchers.

The question is, will it continue into the 2020s and/or TDS will be the apporpaite nomenclature used for Trump supporters.

Having a cute label for groups of folks, does not explain why their lives are so empty, why the society is so morally and creatively bankrupt, and so religiously intolerant; pretty much from top to bottom. It ain't just Trump, his followers, or the cops.

Labels are broad brushstrokes but they do contain some truth(?) The internet and social media definitely communicates with acronyms and noun combining phraseology (w/ symbols)....probably more than any other time in history.

Yes ... but ... does not explain why their lives are so empty, why the society is so morally and creatively bankrupt, and so religiously intolerant; pretty much from top to bottom.

What labels also do is contribute to divisiveness, as is well known, by those with an interest in communication. But they are of course a quick way to ... etc. ...

My question would be:

How would you describe a hierarchy? Or federalism? Whatever proper noun used to define it ; Poof! You just made a label. Additionally, labels are needed in some way, for a society to function Further, labels can be the strategy and power accumulation  for those on top.
I think you might agree with:

“Labels are devices for saving talkative persons the trouble of thinking.” — John Morley
