Discriminating in favor of monkeys?
What about forced labor of: Horses, sheep, cows hens etc.?
Costco doesn’t sell kaporos chickens.

TLDR. But I did skim through it to see what kind of gems they came up with, and almost puked.

On second thought it reminded me of the video going around on Whatsapp showing how many different words in Yiddish could be used for a certain term.

Science - We should vote for the guy who says that men can menstrate because science, got it.

Covid - we should not vote for someone who politicized covid and reduced confidence in a vaccine even before it’s been tested (wait, isn't this supposed to be an endorsement of Biden?)

Climate change - According to the US Energy Information Administration, US CO2 emissions in 2019 were the lowest they have been since 1992. Per capita emissions were lower in 2019 than they’ve been at any time since at least 1950.

Israel -

neglecting without explanation to recognize Israel on US passports as the place of birth of Americans, including one of my own kids, born in Jerusalem.
Trump just changed this. Also, Biden has said he would not have moved the embassy to Jerusalem the first candidate (Democrat or Republican) in decades to say that while running.

Etc.

I fail to understand under what logic a vote of someone that's not alive on election day should be counted. Counting it is nothing short of total breakdown of democracy IMHO.

Why not throw out the ballots of everybody that dies before inauguration day? Or at least all those who die before the electorate college convenes on Dec 16?

Btw, what do you think about somebody who votes on Nov 3 morning but dies in the afternoon?

It's simple procedural question. Save us the drama.

If you don't draw a line on a specific day, it's a slippery slope. How early can one vote? Where do you draw the line?
