I do not know how to sign my married name. I'm horrible at it and it looks like shit. My poll worker is a complete psycho about it and makes me do it multiple times until she thinks it looks right smh.

I'm surprised no one has suggested Trump operatives could invalidate results with a little fraud themselves.  I mean, they've given us every other Trump conspiracy imaginable but somehow no one has considered that Trump's team could also commit fraud by mail.

It's mind boggling what could happen when you consider potentially 80% turnout vs. the more normal 50%.  Think about all those polls based on "likely voters" and then all these "independent?" voters suddenly come into the mix.

Good point, but people are starting to look into how Trump could slow this down. 

Post story this morning about how the new Post Master General is slowing down the Post Office.

LMFAO.  I've been hearing that.  I'm sorry, but the leftwing media has become absolute trash.  Worse than they ever claimed Fox News to be.

I can firsthand say there has been a difference in the past 1-2 months. I don’t sell a ton on eBay, but since we’ve moved in February I’ve had stuff selling there and on Facebook marketplace that we don’t need at the new place (and clothes the wife doesn’t want anymore) at a decent clip. 


It has gone from almost always beating the tracking estimate In the Spring (and at the height of the shutdowns) to always arriving 1-2 days late. I had one thing thing take 3 weeks to go to Illinois, which should take 2 days.

Whether it’s sabotage or not I’m not getting into, but they definitely fucked the system up

I don't dispute that there isn't a real slowdown.  But an intentional slowdown to disrupt vote by mail is a conspiracy that would make Alex Jones blush.  Yet it's straight faced, mainstream reporting as if it's fact.

It's fucking disgusting.  You don't have to be a Trump supporter to acknowledge what an absolute dumpster fire media has become.

It's been a bit weird, from what I've observed. My mom mentioned she had a day where it looked like the local post office must have sent her everything that had been piling up for a week or so all at once (stuff like catalogs and other more mass delivery stuff. And she had me checking online to track a package for her because it'd been like 3-4 weeks to get something sent from only a couple states over. But as for myself, the closest thing I've noticed is that with my last Amazon order of random stuff, one package came a few days after the others.

Yeah, I read the story and thought it was interesting to at least bring it up regarding if we have a lot of mail in ballots, there could be a slow down. I agree it may be a stretch to say it was because of the new Trump appointed head. Unless we get direct evidence of that, then yeah, it is a stretch. 

On another note, I thought it was hilarious today that the White House called out China in Hong Kong for their news they delayed their election. Kinda hard to criticize China when the President was advocating for doing the same thing yesterday....

USPS has always been trash, and it's even worse now. I just got a package from Cali yesterday, shipped on July 6th!

I deal with all forms of shipping at work, USPS, FedEx, and UPS. I've had recent issues with all of them. They just blame COVID and that's that. I don't understand it.

Yes, he's an absolute clown.

And it feels like a familiar theme - Trump is an incompetent moron, yet he hatches sophisticated schemes to thwart vote by mail, or dog whistles in the suburbs.

They lost a package that I returned.  Fortunately I insured at seller's direction.  Been a week since I submitted a search request.  Wondering how long before I get my money.

I’ve been buying a lot of baseball cards on eBay. Most are taking 13+ days if in a stamped envelope. First class with tracking has been fine.

Speaking of packages, we just got something from Amazon that we never ordered and never paid for. Makes no sense, but has our name and address on it.

100% agree. Also, states should be able to start counting the absentee ballots ahead of election day and then once the polls close, then announce the numbers. 

Some states do not start counting absentee ballots until the polls close. That is what takes states like CA forever to have their results. 


Takes a while for all the ballot harvesting to conclude in CA .........libs gotta win every district

That's what every guy says when his wife intercepts the sex doll he ordered at the mailbox.

New York AG got finally got Trump financial records from Deustchebank, and promised a "big announcement" today at 11:30.

Everyone was anticipating something juicy about Trump.  But, nope, she just proclaimed they were suing to dissolve the NRA.


People will just never learn.  I'm sure Mueller's team scrutinized all his financials with 10X the diligence of the IRS auditors.  Hard as it is to believe, Trump has to be clean.  Even the people they arrested didn't cough up any dirt to nail him.

The NRA will probably have their single largest fundraising and new membership day in history.  Thank you radical Marxists!
