HOPE YOU VOTED BLUE TODAY, CAUSE WHEN THE DUST SETTLES, IF NOT ENOUGH PEOPLE DID, WE CAN KISS DEMOCRACY GOODBYE… AND YOU JUST MIGHT BE REALLY BLUE AND VERY SORRY
Somehow it appears, the party that lies, cheats, steals, promises to gut Social Security and medicare, while attempting to overthrow Democracy and all precedents, could actually win and turn our nation into an apartheid confederacy… when they say our votes count, they really mean it. Are you listening America?
HOPE YOU VOTED BLUE! I've been away a while, but I got a little inspired for today's historic importance, and thought it was time for me to say a few words, before that ability was removed for what was once known as the land of the free and the home of the brave. And the hub but about mail in voting today that I awoke to, begins my latest Neilizms # 417. To the political leaders who are trying to throw out mail in ballots because a date was either missing or wrong on the outside envelope… GO FUQ yourselves… I had to help my mother do hers, I had to go over the instructions at least 3 times, and I still had to fix a mistake I had made so it would be good to go…Ridiculous… its not on the ballot, Oh in NY the ballot is 4 sides!! Two large pages, perforated together! I spent a good 5 minutes just opening it to figure out the voting, and where, in fact I almost missed one category…It was a not so fun 15 minutes, but eventuality she chose her picks… yeah for my mom…And I delivered it by hand to post office early so I knew it would arrive early enough… that is unless the post office still run by DeJoy plays games again… Now I voted early myself, by walking into the voting polls and doing my patriotic duty…last week. So now, I have to sit back and ponder if my mothers mail in, will count and will my early voting actually be counted as well…If we somehow can still vote in 2 years, I will once again vote in person on the big day, because this world where 1/3 of the nation believes lies, without any evidence, is possibly in the process of over throwing our nation and turning it into well, something that ain't America and never was…I called it an Apartheid Confederacy on Facebook. American, please don't let that happen. Minority white rule in the United States, I guess Donald's MAGA plan is sadly coming into fruition.
So now people are saying that (if) the Democrats lose, they should have a post mortem on why… because how badly they played this campaign season. Even though, historically the party in power always gets creamed during the mid-terms. At least that's what Ana Navarro said on CNN, where's she's currently one of that networks political experts, that is besides being a co-host on ABCs The View. Well, I think If the Dems lose, the reason why is People simply didn't give a flying fuq about our Democracy, or of course Women's Right, screw that! All they care about are lies by the same people who tried to overthrow our country. Point blank, it's insanity. My feeling is, I guess the Democrats and liked minded American's couldn’t believe that the American people would actually vote for people who attempted to overthrow our democracy. That somehow all the ugliness that the republicans have been pitching would awaken the brainwashed and help throw out the people spewing and spreading the garbage. What gets me is some of the candidates who were actually inside the Capitol or at least on the grounds, during January 6th on that historic day. Worse, the ones who are using that history as a badge of honor… That being written, remember a lot of us couldn't believe Donald Trump would ever get elected in the first place, so what do us like-minded people know? I mean the morning of 2016, the New York Times on their front pages printed that Hillary Clinton had an 85% chance of winning. Oops. So what do the experts know.
Even if people didn’t think about that part of the equation, you know our very Democracy slipping away, what gets me, that once again people could be fooled by a bunch of really terrible commercials, and even worse the most unqualified candidates that one could possibly fear. If not involved, these some of these monsters at least voted to decertify the electoral ballots that the then former Vice President, Joseph Biden Jr., had earned (by winning the election by over 7 million vote lead). Even after the January 6th riots or however you want to classify it, for the now President, Joe Biden. In reality, the attempted coup at least slowed down the historic mostly symbolic event from going forward. Which include those who said they would throw out the 2020 results, and, or, have promised pretty much that Donald would get back into power in 2024 no matter what. What ever that means…
Well phew, I feel a little better now, of course, until I know the actual final results I will be on pins and needles, worried I'll have to turn Catholic and maybe be forced to learn Russian. The circumcism part, sorry, that ain't changing. For the most part I've been bombarded online and especially on television by people seemingly all in on the pitch that the Republicans are throwing. As usual, when there's an election they seem to know how to spew the BS in such a way that no matter how evil they are or how little they have to pitch or have accomplished in office, they always come up with the best way to spin it. No matter what they come up with, seemingly out of some April Fool's joke book or a plot out of a gorefest horror movie. No matter how unbelievable and totally debunked, somehow too many Americans will fall for it, and the worse possible monsters camouflaged in Republican red will get elected or reelected back into power. And no matter how good the Democratic candidate is, no matter now many times they shoot down the lies and conspiracies with facts and evidence, it doesn't seem to matter or work.
We've got too things I keep hearing: Food prices… well all prices are too high. A woman on TV actually said 'I can't worry about things like peoples rights I have to worry about putting food on the table.' Of course, she probably hasn't researched how much food is in places run by dictators. The other, a friend of mind brought up, and it instantly brought me back to the onslaught on commercials banging the drum about the Bail bound issue. Crime! Oh my God! It's worse now then the caravans of rapists and murderers invading our southern border they tell us are storming the beaches of Dallas and Miami. Boy has this BS worked well, and every time the Republicans need to change the subject from one of their people being outed as he monster they are, or something like a little thing called ending Roe V. Wade. Magically somehow, the borders have opened up once again, and the entire population of Latin America has invaded America, and they're all gonna get registered on the same day, vote Democratic, and steal some election, and somehow watch, the Democrats funded them.
Now, The Bail Bound issue: the problem was, people for example were put in Rikers or some other God forsaken hellhole, for nothing. Simply because they didn't have enough to pay their bail fees. And sometimes, unbelievably for years, left to pretty much die…surrounded by to put it nicely, the real scum of the Earth. No kidding, people have died inside, or even sadder some have gotten out, but couldn't handle what they 'lived' through and committed suicide.
And of course, the main reason they did something about this, was because the people waiting in house jails, and such were predominately of color and poor. So if you've got money, you can go on vacation, or to a spa, and hire the best attorney, and whine how you were treated inhumanly because treated you like everyone else. So they wrote a bill, for fairness, so people wouldn't be stuck in jail, or a prison like place, until they could find the funds or their case was simply thrown out, because in some cases for example, the time they waited inside, even if they had gotten the maximum sentence, was actually longer then the sentence they would've have received if they had been convicted of the crime.
Here's the rub, and what's the monsters on the right are doing with it. Unfortunately a few monsters snuck through the cracks, and now of course in Republican talking points and every commercial against a Democrat, the whole world is burning. The perfect republicans attack. And obviously it's working on way too many, at least if the poll numbers in New York City are accurate.
Now, remember, as we talk about that, let's ignore, if they get in, if the Republicans get the majority: the no abortion policy's spreading even further across the land. Women will now officially become second class citizens, who have to ask permission to do things. Screw democracy. Our votes won't count, even if we still can still be allowed to vote, if only ceremonial. And say goodbye to Social Security & Medicare… And sit back and watch as lots and lots of elderly people begin starving to death across the land.
Last thing, according to the political experts on MSNBC, so take that with a grain of salt, apparently the candidates that Trump pushed on the Republican party, seemingly those are the Republicans having the most trouble in their own races. And in a year where Republicans could have easily won the majority in both the Senate and the House, his candidates, in the end, might be the reason, the Democrats retain the majority in either one or both.
