    For those courting supreme justice (9), does this matter?

    So.. Geraldo says we should name the covid-19 vaccine the "Trump Vaccine".

    How many progressives do you think that would kill?

    Sen. Pat Toomey (R-PA): “President Trump has exhausted all plausible legal options to challenge the result of the presidential race in Pennsylvania. ... I congratulate President-elect Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris on their victory.”

    Maybe it's for the better. Trump probably has contracts on MAGA masks. Had he self-promoted them from the start he could've raked in a small fortune (and prob helped save some lives).

    Yes, it matters.

    PA is ready to certify the BS outcome;

    Monday at 10 am; nearly every county:

    One held out until Wednesday (or Thursday)
    Time is running short; it looks like may not SC.
    PA corrupt 3-2 SC Democrat judges majority.

    Our founding fathers created this problem
    State rights... Playing out. This is crunch time.

    If states rights were observed as intended, it wouldn't matter all that much who sits in the Oval Office. Power should go back to the states. That way each state can do what they want and suffer the consequences or reap the reward. And the other states can learn from that.

    As it is, the whole country is being run by grifters.

    If each state does there own thing or contravenes, does that mean that neighbour states can shut the border?

    No. But, unlike the EU, the US would be expected to control borders. A free flow of people means people will leave shithole states and move to successful states. Sounds good in theory, anyway

    Reading over some of the Biden supporters' comments here and there reminds of Gollum at the end of LOTR.

    I suppose it would be harder to control movement in the US with so many interconnected highways and roads. A number of Canadian provinces are currently considering closing borders. It worked for the Atlantic bubble last summer as we only had a few reported cases of Covid (said to be the safest urban place in the world)

    Similar to the Democrats, but more embarrassing for Labour, because their name is suppose to be who they represent.

    It's ironic that in an increasingly globalized world we are seeing more borders and bigger walls. I remember when you could drive from the US to Canada with passengers who had no ID, roaches in the ashtray and everybody a bit drunk. Now, it's like getting past the Gestapo to enter the country.

    I think more open borders are inevitable in the future, otherwise we will just have a series of prisons. But for it to work, there has to be no benefits for new arrivals and strict deportation for criminals. Vagrancy laws may have to be enforced as well. The message being, you can come if you behave and manage to support yourself and obey the law.

    If nothing else, we can be happy that all the beautiful women are on the right. And if history is any guide, where they lead everybody else follows.

    Hehe, you think? Not all on the right, but rather where the money is, they go - the dawn of ultra-feminism.

    Dozens of complaints by people like Sen Warren, investigation by PBS, election activist all call Dominion machines the worse.

    Rudy is not helping Pres. Trump by playing hide and seek with the evidence. They should make it all public now. If they fail, they will all look like liars and fools. Making the information public after they loose will accomplish nothing.

    Alot of bad press has been given to the former Canadian company in question: Dominion Voting Systems.

    Access Wire reported in 2017 that Dominion Voting Systems “is a Canadian company officially founded in the year 2000 with its headquarters in Denver, Colorado. Its founders are President and CEO, John Poulos and James Hoover.”

    https://www.accesswire.com/471912/V...US--Their-Histories-and-Present-Contributions

    Dominion Voting Systems ("Dominion Voting") announces that it has been acquired by its management team and Staple Street Capital, a leading New York-based, middle-market private equity firm.

    https://www.prnewswire.com/news-rel...team-and-staple-street-capital-300681752.html

    In January 2020 in a written statement to the U.S. House, Poulos said, "My name is John Poulos, and I am the Chief Executive Officer and co-founder of Dominion Voting Systems. As a U.S.-owned company, we currently provide voting systems and services to jurisdictions across 30 states and Puerto Rico".

    https://docs.house.gov/meetings/HA/HA00/20200109/110346/HHRG-116-HA00-Wstate-PoulosJ-20200109-U1.pdf

    Playing Devil's Advocate, could it be that Trump was aware of known hardware glitches in the 2016 election? In fairness, why weren't strong demands for a recount then? O_o

    In the Georgia recount, notably:

    Floyd County discovers 2,600 more ballots

    A recount in Georgia’s presidential race found more than 2,600 ballots in Floyd County that hadn’t originally been tallied.

    https://www.ajc.com/news/atlanta-ne...audit-work-monday/ZJH2NSYTOVADFPSWSHN4IQZGVA/

    The problem occurred because county election officials didn’t upload votes from a memory card in an ballot scanning machine, said Gabriel Sterling, the state’s voting system manager.

    It’s not an equipment issue. It’s a person not executing their job properly,” Sterling said.

    Trump could gain nearly 800 net votes from the discovered ballots. There were 1,643 new votes for Trump and 865 for Biden.

    Article by NBC discussed in Brietbart about Ohio turning Red.

    'Ohio has taken a different turn': Ohio no longer appears to be a swing state
    Ohio is an overwhelmingly white working-class state, and the Appalachian parts are even further right than they were four years ago, one analyst said.

    I have a simpler explanation:

    1) Trump changed the focus of the Republican party from the rich to the middle class. His populist message wasn't what made him popular, it was the results he achieved.

    Even though the recession was over by 2016, Trump took a different tact and put America first instead of "leading from behind" ( like a coward ).

    2) The democrats moved farther left, even embracing violent marxism.

    That's it. 75% of the country doesn't want to be told they are stupid racist and America is a bad country. Most people don't care what pronouns you want to use, getting mad at them for not caring just alienates people.

    Trump broke the media and made their bias corruption even clearer. First two lessons by psychologytoday.com are wrong. Stopped reading after that.

    1) 1. Competition and Elimination of Opponents Lead to Business Success.

    Based his conclusion on a reality show he didn't watch or failed to understand. Business is a competition and team work, collaboration with YOUR team leads to success. A very worldly principle but I wonder how the author would view Microsoft's domination in the 90's or Amazon's domination now.

    2) Throw Money at Problems to Make Them Go Away.

    Author complains about Trump paying a women to not discuss an affair. What does he think every other politician does? That was a political problem, not a business lesson.

    Business man Donald J Trump is notoriously thrifty. Look at his 2016 campaign as an example.

    The rest is just more political criticism expected from a rag like phyc today.
