Voting and Awnings, Oh My

Today was a good day. We got our mail-in ballots, we filled them out right away, I voted Democrat throughout – I didn’t even know the judges, but looked them up. If they were appointed by a Republican, too bad for them, I voted not to retain. Sorry, but I have been radicalized.

We ordered awnings for our patio three months ago, gave them half the price as a deposit, and got nothing but a run-around since then. I won’t drag you through the phone calls and the threats, but today they delivered and are now installing. When they are done, Ed and I will drive to an election box drop site and drop off our ballots. I am not trusting the mail that Trump has f’d with.

We watched the debate between Trump and Biden last night. My critique is that Chris Wallace should have been more forceful. I also think that any debater who tramples over the rules as Trump did, should have his mike cut off while he is ranting in order to drown out whatever his opponent is saying. I thought Biden was good and would suggest that instead of saying “it’s not true,” he should instead have said “that’s a lie” or “you are lying”. Let’s call it what it is. Let’s not be politically correct.

Notably absent from the Trump playbook, any condemnation of white supremacists, and he yet, again, emboldened them to act out if he loses because, of course, that means the election was rigged.

xx, Teal

It was very painful to watch trump acting like a spoiled child, not observing the rules and over talking Joe who was trying to be a gentleman in a horrible situation. then boasting that he won the debate. We were able to last until ten minutes after nine, then turned it off. If you are not a rabid trump supporter, then I think disgust reigned.

I listened to most of it. I was upset that Chris Wallace was not more forceful. He's walking a fine line -- getting big money from Fox to be its window dressing for journalism and still trying to be balanced.

Mic-cutting is exactly what should happen. That debate was like... being a journalist in one of Trump's press conferences -- where somebody always gets targeted, interrupted, talked over, and shut down, then insulted and berated.
