Coronavirus is exploding, and so are Trump's most desperate tricks and ugly smears.
Just got back from voting, yay! About two hours from when I get on the line.
It feels like such a complex algebraic equation to live in hope (but not too much), while also living with fear (but not too much), while remaining in the fight (but not so much we wear ourselves out), but staying informed (while avoiding burnout), and on and on and on...
I picked the wrong year to stop sniffing glue.
People are in a state of high anxiety & apprehension.....the next days will be full of hate, vile and lies from the Repugnants and their followers. We the People need to take encouragement that record numbers of people have stepped forward to vote, many for the first time. The concern is that the tactics of tRump and others to incite polling location suppression, intimidation & violence is real. The Repugnants have instigated multiple legal challenges to suppress the vote count. We can only hope that the vote for Biden is overwhelming and humiliating to tRump and his cult. The months between the election night and inauguration, will be full of negativity, outrageous administration actions, bizarre & harmful executive orders, and over the top tRump tantrums. How we can deal with this period , I don’t know? I think that we may have to resort to multiple protests to counter the tRump and his administration vengeance and spiteful actions.
Michaelangelo! I too wish I could be comatose until the election is over.....
the anxiety is overwhelming to say the least. I have been a long time listener to your show and you are a lifeline during these trying times. Good luck today trying to vote!
You go Micaelangelo and rock the vote. We need everyone to vote for our future!
I'm in Illinois and voted Tuesday. Waited about 45 minutes so not to bad. Also in a state that is pretty comfortably blue, however you wouldn't think so by all these trumper fb friends I have. How did ever have anything in common with these people I went to HS with?? Anyway as I read Daya's post here .. I'm feeling the same. Cautiously optimistic but so very nervous. 10 days .. final stretch but how long before the votes are counted and then ... what will trump pull between then and inauguration day if things don't go his way. I know, let's get the win first !!!
North Carolina -- the fireworks will go off, here.
I am hopeful and prayerful that Biden will win. It’s the militia activity that frightens me and all the enraged white racists. I wish FOX would pay a price for the hate, demonizing and misinformation they have enabled and normalized! They have been an enemy of the state.
I also hope Trump is dumb enough to fire Bar, think he will flip on Trump?
How ya all feel about Micheal Cohen? I’m enjoying the hell
Out of his Podcast
It is so stressful. I am beside myself. Still traumatized over 2016 and the last 4 years.
I have zero trust even though I try to remain hopeful.
If he manages to weasel his way in again, I cannot stay in the US.
I could not vote for Trump if I agreed with every one of his policies, he's poison. I'll never understand why people can't see he's a con artist.
It's sweaty palms time! So nervous, I can not stand another 4 years of trump. It's all up to how productive his cheating is...otherwise we are the MAJORITY VOTE!
I live in SF, Cali and I literally just watched a Trump campaign commercial on the local ABC channel where they obviously and amateurly edited Biden saying he’s going to raise taxes on small businesses and the middle class. The desperation is apparent. I’ve also been seeing Biden signs on cars, trucks and lawns everywhere and yesterday, as I drove through SF to go to a local bakery, I saw an older, white man standing near an intersection carrying a Biden/Harris sign and on the back side it said “Dump Trump” and of course we all honked in approval. Things look good and I have hope. #fucktrump
Glad to be able to check in This Sunday morning and read the posts from our Signorile “family”. Been dealing with a very sick cat all weekend. I have learned in 2020 just have to put one foot in front of the other. The best way 2020 can redeem itself is to give us a complete Democratic government.
I have been working all year with fierce determination, first for my chosen primary candidate, then for down ballot candidates nationwide. Talking to voters makes me far more hopeful than the both-sides-ism media drama. Since Labor Day and especially after RBG died, we have been inundated with volunteers and absolutely crushing the text banks. But the last few days, I have been frozen and numb. I think I'm just tired and want it to be all over with. I work with a terrific group of political grassroots people called Building Bridges for America, and their friendship has become a sanity saver for me. We Zoom together while we work, postcards, letters, text banking, etc., and we have trivia contests, movie night, music night, book club, etc. I got a good night's sleep last night and am back on my game....texted for Mondaire Jones this morning, Amy McGrath this afternoon, and it's all GOTV and absentee ballot chase and they are all identified supporters so the conversations are pleasant. We have extremely motivated voters. We are going to win this. I'm leaving it all on the field, no regrets. We must win or my head will explode.
I'm feeling good. I'm not one bit afraid of Donald Trump. He's a full blown narcissist who is going to go down. And the signs are good. One, Biden's not Hillary. Two, they're expecting 20 million more votes cast. How many of them are Trump supporters? I doubt many. The country is sick to death of him.
God bless you for voting!!!!
Let's vote people, nine (9) days and counting!!!!
By the way, I watched Borat and he's a Genius. I was laughing my ass off about his pranks on the cult-followers, lol!
