Re: The vote by mail fiasco, as it unfolds

They know they can't win a fair election, I just don't understand how you can state that with such confidence. Even the most Trump positive polls has the race pretty even, no? With most having Biden in some sort of lead? With most minds made up: https://www.thestreet.com/mishtalk/politics/in-the-pr...

Re: The vote by mail fiasco, as it unfolds

My earlier question still stands. What would it take for you to be satisfied with early/mail-in/absentee ballots? Good question. Probably a combination of things. Immediate notification to the voter if a ballot is rejected, so the voter can correct the problem. Secure online confirmation of the rec...

If Trump gets 13% of the Black vote, the election is over

And this is even assuming that everyone is telling the truth to pollsters, which we know is not true: https://www.nbcnews.com/specials/swing-the-election/#active=race_education&t-cew=72&t-ncw=55&t-black=57&t-latino=45&t-ao=46&d-cew=54&d-ncw=31&d-black=87&d-latino=72&d-ao=73&t-age1829=433&t-age3044=5...

Re: The vote by mail fiasco, as it unfolds

My earlier question still stands. What would it take for you to be satisfied with early/mail-in/absentee ballots? There will be no satisfactory answer here. I would guess even if there was no Covid and voting was 95% in person, there would be some concern about some aspect that would delegitimize t...

Re: Trump Goes Unmentioned in Most TV Ads for House, Senate Campaigns

What does it say when Republican candidates don't use Trump in their ads? How can they NOT want to ride the coattails of a landslide Trump victory election? Vinny Well, it might say those candidates are self-confident and running on their own platforms vs. riding the coattails of another. Think of ...

Clickbait like this is what you do to people you don't like. Not your PP frens.

Re: The vote by mail fiasco, as it unfolds

They are advertising for hiring additional poll workers at $12.00-$13.50/hr and supposedly offering live wait times online for vote locations on Election Day to try and minimize lines. That would be a pretty cheap way to muck with those mail in ballots, wouldn't it? WIth the voting machines there i...

Re: Coronavirus General Discussion

I have at least one friend whose company has decided to go remote forever. What this is all going to do to commercial real estate is going to be devastating. And Air Traffic, wow: https://i.imgur.com/GrMQqSo.jpg Yes, and what about real estate tax revenues? If you have any municipal bonds, you migh...
