Election Day!

BLACK VOTERS: Last week, Rep. Maxine Waters (R-CA) said, “For those black young men who think somehow they can align themselves with Trump, not only are they terrible mistaken, any of them showing their face, I will never, ever forgive them for undermining the possibility to help their own people and their own communities.”

Like Don Lemon, she has given zero thought to actually listening to these people she so despises. “It just hurts me so bad to see blacks talking about supporting Trump. I don’t know why they would be doing it. I don’t know why it is on their minds.”

CNN: On yesterday’s edition of Cuomo PrimeTime, CNN’s Chris Cuomo introduced his guest, New York Times columnist Tom Friedman, with, “Few people are more respected for how they think and how they communicate than our next guest. And he says something pretty scary. That this could be the last week of America as we know it.”

Friedman informed viewers that the GOP was “a giant political brothel that basically rents itself out to the night to whoever will energize its base.” His list of whores that entertained the Johns (aka the average Republican voter) over the years included Sarah Palin, the Tea Party, and Trump. “And unfortunately, for the last four years, the red light as always been on.”

Cuomo suggested it was not fair to place all the blame on Trump, because GOP voters suck big time. “We have never seen Republicans swallow the kind of manure that they have with a big smile on their face for the last few years.”

FOREIGN INTERFERENCE: Acting Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Chad Wolf says, “We have no indications that a foreign actor has succeeded in compromising or manipulating any votes in this election.”

GOOGLE: [1:30] – But Google doesn’t discriminate. Just ask them!

PENNSYLVANIA: The Attorney General of the Keystone States informed us all that Biden has already won, but just in case, they’re not going to call the state until after in case the stupid voters pick Trump.

Meanwhile, reports are coming out of Philadelphia of Democrat poll watchers attempting to bar Republican poll watchers from entering. Also Democrats handing out campaign literature to people waiting in line to vote AND campaigning inside polling stations. Both are illegal.

RIOTS: CLICK https://www.facebook.com/100012057311602/videos/1011489825929585/ [1:56] to see an excellent Trump ad about the riots. Why would you vote for the people who want to burn down your house and steal your stuff?

SOCIALISM: CLICK https://twitter.com/i/status/1323668906439966720 [:59] to learn how to be a good mother to your Biden supporting off-spring.

TDS: What is wrong with this woman that she can’t see the difference between joyful Trump supporters driving around, honking their horns, and Muslim terrorists moving troops to a new location to continue destroying churches and cultural treasures, raping women and children, and slaughtering anyone who disagrees with their particular brand of Islam?

VOTER SUPPRESSION: “Democrats were post-Civil War pioneers championing voter suppression. Think of lynching, grandfather clauses, literacy tests, and poll taxes to frustrate likely Republican Party voters. The Democratic Party including President Woodrow Wilson opposed the Woman’s Franchise Amendment to hold its southern base.” – Bruce Fein

GRAMMY NOTES: Our Texas grandson cast his ballot in school (graphic). Dearest is working an 18 hour shift at the polling station in my old elementary school today. And Mama Buzz write, “[Papa Buzz] and I went to early voting. Such a positive energy at the polling station and they announced every time there was a first time voter and we all clapped and cheered! I had been feeling nervous about running into angry crazy people, but prayed God would have us go to a polling station that was safe … prayers answered and then some!”

The Sacramental Side of Voting

I joined the FB Walk Away group a few months ago. I just saw yet another in a long line of posts by someone who had never cared enough to vote before this year. I’m glad they’re finally wised up, but maybe that kind of apathy is why things got so bad in this country!

I am so thankful to my family for teaching me that voting is a sacred honor. I was privileged to travel behind the Iron Curtain twice before I turned 18. Ever after our trip to Budapest in 1965, my mother went to Mass on July 4, said it was her new Holy Day of Obligation.

In 1967, my eldest brother was nearly killed by a sniper in Vietnam, so I have long known the blood price paid for my right to vote.

Also, I miss the old voting machines … going into the booth and pushing that heavy handle over to close the curtains with a loud THUNK. Clicking down the levers, then pushing and THUNKing again to register my vote and open the curtains.

The process felt sacramental … shades of my Catholic experiences in the confessional booth.
