    I wasn't going to make any further comments but yesterday's developments are pretty substantial. Both sides of the aisle yesterday lined up against Trump's assault on democracy and I think if he continues this destructive path of negating the election results in November he will be actually impeached.

    "But in his tweet on Thursday morning -- coming 96 days before the election and minutes after the federal government reported the worst economic contraction in recorded history -- Trump offered the suggestion because he claimed without evidence the contest will be flawed.
    "With Universal Mail-In Voting (not Absentee Voting, which is good), 2020 will be the most INACCURATE & FRAUDULENT Election in history. It will be a great embarrassment to the USA," he wrote. "Delay the Election until people can properly, securely and safely vote???"

    There is no evidence that mail-in voting leads to fraud.
    Trump has previously sought to stoke fear and lay the groundwork to question the election's results by promoting the idea that mail-in voting leads to widespread fraud and a "rigged" election.

    The day you won't make anymore comments the world has likely ended or Skybox has shut down.

    Strange that all the people posting here you stand alone. And a lot of us have had significant differences through the years but when it comes to Dave's logic no one agrees.

    Pretty telling.

    I will venture that there will be a turnover in the Senate and we will have an all Democratic Congress in addition to a Democratic president by the time the military has to forcibly remove Donald Trump kicking and screaming from the White House.
    I stand in the majority Bill..... just not here on the decidedly ultra conservative Skybox.

    Here's what a vote by mail election looks like in Democratic NJ.
    1 in 5 Ballots Rejected as Fraud Is Charged in N.J. Mail-In Election | RealClearPolitics
    "Mail-in ballots have long been acknowledged by voting experts to be more susceptible to fraud and irregularities than in-person voting. This has raised concerns from President Trump and other Republicans about the integrity of national elections in November, which are expected to include a dramatic increase in mail-in ballots. If Paterson is any guide, it ought to concern Democrats as well"

    Following accusations of widespread fraud, voter intimidation, and ballot theft in the May 12 municipal elections in Paterson, N.J., state Attorney General Gurbir S. Grewal (pictured) announced Thursday he is charging four men with voter fraud – including the vice president of the City Council and a candidate for that body.

    With races still undecided, control of the council hangs in the balance. Paterson is New Jersey’s third largest city and the election will decide the fate of a municipal budget in excess of $300 million, in addition to hundreds of millions more in education spending and state aid.

    Trump: "Smart People" Understand What's Going On With Voter Fraud, "Stupid People" Don't…
    In the City Council election, 16,747 vote-by-mail ballots were received, but only 13,557 votes were counted. More than 3,190 votes, 19% of the total ballots cast, were disqualified by the board of elections. Due to the pandemic, Paterson’s election was done through vote-by-mail. Community organizations, such as the city’s NAACP chapter, are calling for the entire election to be invalidated.

    "Mail-in ballots have long been acknowledged by voting experts to be more susceptible to fraud and irregularities than in-person voting. This has raised concerns from President Trump and other Republicans about the integrity of national elections in November, which are expected to include a dramatic increase in mail-in ballots. If Paterson is any guide, it ought to concern Democrats as well.

    Over 800 ballots in Paterson were invalidated for appearing in mailboxes improperly bundled together – including a one mailbox where hundreds of ballots were in a single packet. The bundles were turned over to law enforcement to investigate potential criminal activity related to the collection of the ballots.


    The board of elections disqualified another 2,300 ballots after concluding that the signatures on them did not match the signatures on voter records."
    This is an actually problem, not some stupid eventuality of Trump not leaving. Does anyone out there remember the morons who are in charge of elections down in Broward and Palm Beach counties? It took those assholes 2 weeks to count votes from a regular election. If they have to count only mail ins it might take half a presidential administration to get done.

    Well if you listened to Obama's rant at the Lewis memorial you know what DIVISIVE really is. He's come out of his ocean-side estate to enter the fray. Lots of bets being placed on Biden's choice for VP....Michelle Obama!!! OMG!

    And so the Big Ten effectively cancels the college football season.

    And we're supposed to stand by and not get a little pissed off at those at the top in Washington who have not done all that they could from the very start months ago to continually and daily address the fight against the spread of this virus?? Pissed off at those who politicized and redirected every bit of medical advice to suit their own political purposes?

    Enjoy your fall without football.

    My wife is an RN Case Manager and was just on the phone with a patient who has breathing issues and so he went to get an antibiotic today and they said he first had to have a Covid test.
    Well...... turns out he had one a WEEK ago and is still waiting for results!!!
    That is inexcusable and if you wanna know why your college football season is so screwed it's because Trump has not taken the initiative to commit enough resources for testing with quick results and assigning enough people to contact trace people who someone like this patient might have interacted with in the past week. Contrary to the Liar-in-Chief the virus has not been under control.... has not been getting better and his testing effort from a federal standpoint has been woefully inadequate.
