Stupid argument that intentionally misrepresents Trump's position. Trump says that they should count all the votes that were cast on election day, and not count votes cast after election day.
The 'argument' is just a joke, but Trump said many times he wants the count finished on Election Day.

He's contesting Michigan that doesn't count ballots received after election day.

As those on these forums may know, I am a Trump supporter (not necessarily as a person, but in the big picture) and I have conservative values. That being said...

I voted for Cory Booker tonight.

In my opinion, Rik Mehta has zero chance. I despise Booker's national policies, and I am repulsed by his failure to initially support the Taylor Force Act and his support for the Iran deal, but as they say, 'all politics are local', and I think he is an effective senator for the people of Lakewood.

I've heard from a big askan that his office is one of the best in the country for constituent services, and that he has taken care of so many issues for Agudah and other, including matters for individuals and for the klal. Yes, the stances he takes when he seeks wide publicity are often spineless and wrong, but I think that it would benefit Lakewood to be seen by the victor as a supporter, so that he continue to care about Lakewood residents.

Now, as @chevron so aptly put it, So shoot me.
Booker got just over 30 percent of Lakewood's mail-in-vote. Biden got about 25.5 percent. Nearly 5 percent of Lakewood voters voted for Booker without voting for Biden. (so far.) It's not that much, but it does indicate something.

I think he's been pretty clear on his position.

You should know by now he didn't mean that. The Trumpsters will explain what he meant.

DIVORCE AGREEMENT Between Republicans & Democrats

WRITTEN BY A YOUNG COLLEGE STUDENT

The person who wrote this is a college (law) student. Perhaps there is hope for us after all.

Dear American liberals, leftists, social progressives, socialists, Marxists and Obama supporters, et al:

We have stuck together since the late 1950's for the sake of the kids, but the whole of this latest election process has made me realize that I want a divorce. I know we tolerated each other for many years for the sake of future generations, but sadly, this relationship has clearly run its course. Our two ideological sides of America cannot and will not ever agree on what is right for us all, so let's just end it on friendly terms. We can smile and chalk it up to irreconcilable differences and go our own way.

Here is our separation agreement: --Our two groups can equitably divide up the country by landmass each taking a similar portion. That will be the difficult part, but I am sure our two sides can come to a friendly agreement. After that, it should be relatively easy! Our respective representatives can effortlessly divide other assets since both sides have such distinct and disparate tastes.

--We don't like re-distributive taxes so you can keep them.

--You are welcome to the liberal judges and the ACLU

--Since you hate guns and war, we'll take our firearms, the cops, the NRA, and the military.

--We'll take the nasty, smelly oil industry and the coal mines, and you can go with wind, solar and bio-diesel


--We'll keep capitalism, greedy corporations, pharmaceutical companies, Wal-Mart, and Wall Street.

--You can have your beloved lifelong welfare dwellers, food stamps, hippies, druggies, and illegal aliens.

--We'll keep the, greedy CEOs, and rednecks

We’ll keep Hannity, Carlson, and Bibles, and give you NBC, CNN, ABC, CBS, and Hollywood

--You can make nice with Iran and Palestine and we'll retain the right to invade and hammer places that threaten us.

--You can have the peaceniks and war protesters.

--When our allies or our way of life are under assault, we'll help provide them security.

-We'll keep our Judeo-Christian values.

--You are welcome to Islam, Scientology, Humanism, political correctness and Shirley McClain. You can also have the UN. but we will no longer pay the bill.

--We'll keep the SUV's, pickup trucks, and oversized luxury cars. You can take every Volt, Tesla, and Leaf you can find.

--You can give everyone healthcare if you can find any practicing doctors.

--We'll keep "The Battle Hymn of the Republic" and "The National Anthem."

--I'm sure you'll be happy to substitute "Imagine," "I'd Like to Teach the World to Sing," "Kumbaya “or” We Are the World."

--We'll practice trickle-down economics and you can continue to give trickle up poverty your best shot.

--Since it often so offends you, we'll keep our history, our name and our flag.

Would you agree to this? If so, please pass it along to other like-minded liberal and conservative patriots and if you do not agree, just hit delete. In the spirit of friendly parting, I'll bet you might think about which one of us will need whose help in 15 years.

Sincerely,

John J Wall

Law Student and American!

P. S. Also, please take Ted Turner, Sean Penn, Martin & Charlie Sheen, George Clooney, Barbara Streisand, and Jane Fonda with you.

P.S.S. And you won't have to press 1 for English when you call our country.

It's old. It's a 'response' to a Trump tweet from last year:
https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1178989254309011456

Basically showing that the fact that the map looks red doesn't mean he has overwhelming support, since the map is just showing counties he won, which encompasses a huge percentage of land, but not a huge percentage of voters.

Much as PETA would like to allege that cows are people too, as of this time, cows do not yet have voting privileges in the United States of America. Therefore, Nebraska, Wyoming, Montana, Kansas and South Dakota may have impressive land masses and cattle populations, but being as LA has more people in a single county than all these states combined, the map graphic is irrelevant.

I don't even understand why this was thought to be gibberish in the first place. It's pretty straight forward - if you were capable enough to fill the role of quartermaster in the military, you're certainly capable of running a floor of a department store. How is that gibberish, even without context?

Gee, it's almost like Trump supporters were deliberately spreading nonsense.

Pretty bold move by Trump, especially considering that

Now that Flynn has been pardoned, he can no longer invoke the Fifth Amendment's protection against self-incrimination, which means he can be compelled to testify before a jury or risk being charged with contempt of court.

Yeah I don't think he's as dumb as that. He did release it directly during Biden's speech today to try to steal his spotlight.
