Still standing and loading more ammo.... Yeah, I know I am Canadian. Just taking the worst case scenario here. (i.e. Fenian Raids)

You'll need the ammo for when starving Americans try to cross the border, but that will take a while, once the Green New Deal stops food production because there are no electric farming equipment, and the power lines to farms don't have the capacity to charge them if they existed, and the farmers couldn't afford them anyway. And when the government requires them to not raise the price of food even though production costs go through the barn roof, they just won't be growing anything anyway.

Morning, campers. I'm seeing a lot of Republicans and conservatives talking like they are throwing in the towel, that there's no way the election can be recovered. That may be true, but they seem to be ignoring--or perhaps they don't even know?--that Trump's campaign has already filed lawsuits against several states. we know from 2000 that these lawsuits can go all the way to the Supreme Court. I'm not assuming much will happen still, but I want to give Trump a chance to force these folks to do the right thing. Do I want a repeat of Florida 2020? No, but I am glad to see him fighting.

NPR's Morning Sedition breathlessly announced that president-select Joe von Hindenburg was within four Electoral College votes of victory.  Of course, two of the states contributing to that count have not announced official counts, but were declared to be for von Hindenburg because "the AP" had declared them so.  That would appear to be an effort by the media to quietly regain a few shreds of its lost reputation as public arbiters.

Morning Sedition also tried to make much of the fact that the attempts to deal with the pending counts in the Fraud States were being addressed in different ways; in Pennsylvania, an effort to stop the count (in order to assess and address the fraud before it's cast in concrete) and elsewhere attempts to complete the count.  One has to almost admire the artistry here; while anyone intelligent will recognize that the different behaviors in the Fraud States require different responses, harping on this supposed inconsistency will help to delegitimize Trump's ultimate success with the low-info voters should he ultimately prevail.

I forget who said, "War is a series of disasters followed by victory," but he was right.

What do Democrats serve on Thanksgiving?

Stuffed Ballot Box, with all the trimmings.

So I maintained my attitude of partial neglect of the election last night by instead watching “the Alamo“ the 1960 version. This, in part, because I had already kind of imagined myself in the role of Richard Widmark as Jim Bowie, given my current leg injury, gunning down as many antifa goons as I can for my bed before they are upon me.

Someone yesterday observed that if the Laggard States™ can give us their results for the House, for the Senate, and for their own state elections now, why are they dragging their feet on the presidential totals? They're all on the same ballot.

That in itself cries "fraud!" 

And, believe it or not, I just spoke with someone who did not/would not/could not understand that concept.

My thinking, looking back at the iceberg we just hit and noticing the bow is start to settle.

This election from the left and their running Biden, is NOT about who won.

What they've done is engineer a method to undermine a fundamental concept of a Representative Republic.

Consent of the Governed.

With the trust removed from election results so to is withdrawn the Consent of the Governed.

The side that ostensibly loses then can employ justify other means to exert political power.

No matter who ones, one side is out. One side is in. Depending on which side the rules of engagement will be different.

However the result is the same, a more fractured society, with with more chaos.

Nature abhors a vacuum, and the side more willing to exert the necessary will power to control the chaos wins.

That force by necessity is tyrannical.

please stop with the despair. No offense.

we are not out of this, not by a long shot. And a direct answer to what you are pointing out would be to put in serious pressure for vote reform.

If, God forbid, Biden and Harris do win, and the leftists continue on course for turning us into a Balkanized republic based on grievance group status, I fully intend to use my wounded knee to claim Native American status.

Democrats: "Make The Inevitable evitable in 2016, will you? Well, here's one on you---in 2020 we're gonna make the Evitable inevitable! How ya like them apples?"

What's the difference between 9/11 Truthers and Democrats in 2020?

9/11 Truthers think that the WTC is the first time that fire has melted steel.

Democrats in 2020 think that stealing can extinguish fire.

Office is getting moved over the weekend.

I have a coworker retiring, and they put me--me!--in charge of the Zoom party. And I have absolutely no entertainment gene whatsoever.

Was busy helping my mom, shopping for ammo and components. Then I spent the afternoon assembling freedom seeds. Think I have enough for a little while. Wife will be happy to get the craft desk back on Saturday. Have to still assemble food for Big Bertha....

I had to go in to work to get a new laptop. The old one was ....old. They found an old one and managed to get it working so I didn't have to lug my desktop home and back. Now I have a nice new one.

90 minutes round trip, and I had to make sure essential functions worked - like VPN. It didn't. Got it fixed while I was there.

It is a good sign that I got a new machine. 

Of course, once President Harris defunds the Defense Dept.... And they decide that any Jew who shows support for Israel must have divided loyalty....

I was gone for about three hours almost two of which were spent in Pep Boys trying to get windshield wiper blades.  The gal in the back with the parts book was helping a gentleman for at least one of those hours and there was a cashier.I thought the one customer was going to keep the lady in the parts department busy for the rest of the day.   At least they'll put the wiper blades on for you.  It took less than a minute for the guy in the service department to put them on.  It is 90 degrees today but will go down to about 50 late Friday into early Saturday.  We are expecting rain Saturday and Sunday and snow at 4,000 feet.

After a long and annoying trip that involved an unscheduled stop to get a new alternator (grrrrrrr) I finally made it to the beach.  Luckily there was beer.
