Re: So it's' been almost 36 hours

As far as the first mail pickups in November happening after the election I would also be dubious about, but even if true is irrelevant. Depending on the state votes that came in after the election was over would either be summarily rejected or would have to be postmarked (as in handled by the post...

Re: So it's' been almost 36 hours

There have been numerous audits of voting by mail, and all of them have found that actual voter fraud (as opposed to people just screwing up honestly) is so insignificantly small so as to be non-existent. The US Military has been doing mail in voting for years, with no issues, as have numerous stat...

Re: It's the news you never want to get.

Alert one day, gone the next. the hospice my grandmother was in said that is very common. One of my grandmother's passed less than a week shy of the 21st anniversary of h...

Re: A long lament.

From 21 January 2021 onward she can declare Joe Biden is mentally unfit to continue in the office of President and take over as Acting President. Her doing so could trigger the second civil war. I was worried about that, until I read the relevant section of the the 25th Amendment. If anything, ther...

Re: It's the news you never want to get.

Had a neighbor who died from a brain tumor. The regression that happened as it grew was not pleasant for his family or friends. I wish the news was better, spend the time you can with her while you can, we will be around when you're ready to come back. Her story is obviously not going to be so pleas...

Re: A Subjugation wanna be?

Really should be merged with the "WTF" thread. It's about the same story. If your read more than the first 7 paragraphs, it runs off in a very different direction and continues to develop distance from there. It shares a number of tropes with Subjugation, and the MC happens to have the sam...

Re: Quick update concerning my mother.

You are doing the best you can. Please don't feel like it's not enough. The medic alert and home care are excellent steps. Prayers for you and your mother. This. There is only so much you're going to be able to do about this situation. I hope the situation improves and they can find a combination o...

Re: WTF

There are some interesting similarities. The main character is named Jason and he is an engineering student. But from that point the story diverges in a number of significant points. It is important to note that plagiarism is not necessarily a copyright infringement. While there are several questio...

Re: A long lament.

I'm not saying there aren't cases that weren't reported or that they aren't racist cops or racist people or police brutality and no problems exist. What I am saying is that the issues aren't systemic and tearing down the biggest, freest, and allow me to say, least rasist country ever in the history...

Re: A long lament.

On another tangent, from our European perspective going to the USA is not safe at all, no matter where you come from. Sure our police might treat you badly and screw your day but generally you do not fear death as a result. To be honest, death by police arrest also has happened here, but it is a ve...

Re: A long lament.

Personally, I think the roots of today's polarization stem from the Bill Clinton / Newt Gingrich agreement to remove earmarks. Earmarks required members of Congress to actually vote on bills of substance, support initiatives on the other side in order to pass their own projects. Close, but not quit...

Re: A long lament.

(for instance, after the death in Charlottesville a couple of years ago). Ah, the whole "there were fine people on both sides" thing. One of the clips in that linked video came from that same speech. But what the "fine people" reference actually was talking about was this: Trump...

Re: A long lament.

Peaceful protests, sure, but I have not heard the first word from ANYONE supporting violence or rioting. Kamala Harris and many Biden campaign staffers helped raise funds for and bail out people arrested for rioting. Okay, not an outright endorsement, but really? I have heard the President refusing...

Re: Revolution, Chapter 13 (Spoilers)

Their intentions were probably to give the Faey telekinesis as well as more powerful telepathy but they weren't ready for it to get out. Wasn't the intentional spead just them trying to cover up patient zero when it was unintentionally released so it would make it very difficult to trace back? I'd ...

Re: Citadel Online

With the Faey being 100% telepathic and use to reading the surface thoughts of all the non-telepathic persons in the other races. Once all the others races are through the change and can close themselves, how will the Faey feel being unable to read those surface thoughts that they have been accusto...
