What Should We Do Now: The frightening report of the Transition Integrity Project.
“On the second Friday in June, a group of political operatives, former government and military officials, and academics quietly convened online for what became a disturbing exercise in the fragility of American democracy.”

The group, which included Democrats and Republicans, gathered to game out possible results of the November election, grappling with questions that seem less far-fetched by the day: What if President Trump refuses to concede a loss, as he publicly hinted recently he might do? How far could he go to preserve his power? And what if Democrats refuse to give in?”
“The law is essentially ... it’s almost helpless against a president who’s willing to ignore it.”
“Ordinary people with extraordinary vision can redeem the soul of America by getting in what I call good trouble, necessary trouble,” Lewis, 80, wrote shortly before his death on July 17, 2020, from pancreatic cancer.

"Until recently, I had taken as political hyperbole the Democrats' assertion that President Trump is a fascist," the conservative legal scholar wrote. "But this latest tweet is fascistic and is itself grounds for the president's immediate impeachment again by the House of Representatives and his removal from office by the Senate."

Race and other prejudices are complex things, more complex than mainstream society makes them out to be. For instance, if I like one race more than another, or if I think one race is better than another, that can be called racism and probably deserves it, but you can't account for taste.

I think the ones that struck me the most was the one on religion--Muslim vs. Jews. I'm a total shoes and think both religions are full of shit. So, any conclusion that they could comes to from that test will be wrong.

Race is actually a complete fabrication... just a way to divide people based on looks. There's actually no scientific legitimacy behind the concept of race. We are all human.

It's as simple as if a "black" and "white" person have a child... what race is the child? You can say half and half... so then you go to the grandparents and great grandparents and so on until you eventually realize you're just making shit up...

1. Denying that race exists.
2. Denying that racism exists.
They are different, i.e., not the same.

Spotted in Portland. Hey I like family, gratitude every day and for gifting, home, and key lime pie. Propaganda is mixing in that with hate.

“What we've never seen before is a president say, ‘I'm going to try to actively kneecap the Postal Service to discourage voting, and I will be explicit about the reason I'm doing it.’ That's sort of unheard of, right?” Obama said. “And we also have not had an election in the midst of a pandemic that is still deadly and killing a lot of people.”

“So in that circumstance, the thing I'm most worried about is … how do we protect the integrity of the election process? How do we make sure that people's votes are counted? How do we police and monitor how state officials are setting up polling places and ensuring that every vote is counted?”

A bipartisan organization of state secretaries of state—the people in charge of elections—wrote to Trump’s new Postmaster General Louis DeJoy on August 7 to ask for a meeting to discuss his recent changes to the USPS and to explore how those changes would affect the election. In a delay that observers say is “unusual,” he has declined to answer. The USPS recently sent letters to 46 states and Washington, D.C. to say that it cannot guarantee that it will be able to deliver mail-in ballots on time. The letters were prepared before DeJoy took office, suggesting that he knew the USPS should be ramping up its capacity, not decreasing it.

News broke today that DeJoy was named to the finance team of the Republican National Committee in 2017 (along with Elliott Broidy, Michael Cohen, and Gordon Sondland, if anyone can remember back to the days of impeachment), suggesting his partisanship makes him a poor fit for what is supposed to be a nonpartisan office.
