As of Monday morning, CA is reporting that 87 percent of all ballots have been counted, so no one stopped counting and Biden has received 65.6% of the vote for president.  NO fraudulent ballots have been found in CA, and no evidence of fraud has yet been presented in any state court..  I really don't understand why it is so difficult for Republicans to accept that counting ballots, especially in a state with our population, takes time.

 

Carolyn Marie

Probably for the same reasons that democrats still can’t accept the results of the 2016 election. They pushed that false Russia thing for *years* and proved nothing. 
 

Now, we have several allegations and whistleblower statements — “sharpiegate” in Arizona; a 6,000 ballot glitch in one state, republican election officials kicked out of polling locations (in violating of the law) and a host of other curiously shady things going on. And none of those take into account the rampant tech company censorship and obvious media bias in the last 4 years. 
 

No, I had to hear about Russia for 4 years with no evidence. Democrats can now listen to such sentiment at least until January. 
 

And here’s the one thing you really can’t get around. If the election was totally legitimate and absolute nothing shady took place, Biden should be leading the charge to confirm the legitimacy of the results. He should be demanding recounts, and calling for full and transparent investigations into each and every battleground state complaint. 
 

Is he? No. He’s already choosing the new curtains for the White House.

October, 2008, Vice presidential debate: “Marriage is between one man and one woman.” — Joe Biden.

 

Eaaily verifiable. It’s even one of the clips on the videos I posted.

Let me real...real clear here. 
 

I’m not a republican. Prior to this year, I voted only once in my life — 2008...for Obama.

 

This time around, I was seriously considering Tulsi Gabbard. I was impressed by how effortlessly she destroyed Harris in the first democrat debate. 
 

And her reward for that performance? She was labeled by the left — her OWN party — as a “Russian puppet” less than 24 hours later. 


The democrat party is as corrupt and shady as the day is long. In that same democrat debate, Harris herself slammed Biden on his policies that nearly kept her from getting to where she is today. 
 

In an interview with Stephen Colbert I saw earlier today, she did her ridiculously fake cackle-laugh and simply said “it was a debate!” I guess that means either she was lying in the debate, or everything she pointed out is now “a-okay” since she’s the alleged new VP.

 

You're free to hate the big orange booger man all you want...even if it’s for false, media-generated reasons. Truth be told, I do r really “like” him, either. I’ve said more than once that he’s an immature, bipolar buffoon. 
 

But you can’t sit here and tell me the democrats are not up to some shady stuff. And if they truly aren’t...what’s the harm in proving it? Wouldn’t that go a long way in quelling all this stolen election talk?

Tulsi Gabbard made a tweet in which she congratulated Biden on his win and mentioned that it is (as President Elect Biden stares) it is now time for unity and healing.  There has perhaps never been and may never be a president that expresses my views exactly or does what i want.  If they di it would satisfy only one person.  Guess who?  We are a country and must take what our fellows elect.  I'm proud to be an American and have faith that if we can work together and forget these petty arguments we can be and be seen as a blessing to the world.  A democracy that lasts even though I don't get what i want.

Typo Led to False Post About Michigan Votes Showing Up Magically For Biden

 

Wow, takes about 2 seconds to debunk these things

Strange... that's about how long it takes to see all the lies about Trump have been debunked. But to see that, you'd have to be willing to look.

 

And I trust USA Today about as much as cnn, msnbc of faux news.

Of course she did. She, like Bernie is bending the knee to the corrupt dnc. How else will she get them to stop calling her a Russian puppet?

 

I'm happy you're happy. But talk is cheap, especially from a cis white male who supports the people burning cities to the ground and who willingly joined the chorus of people labeling half the country "racist."

 

He can call for unity all he likes. But I, and many many others, will not forget what he's been saying for the last 4 years. 

 

It's hilarious to me that Trump denounced white supremacy 35+ times in 4 years and the media still demands he to do it at every opportunity (and runs headlines falsely highlighting his refusal). Biden, on the other hand, calls for unity after 4 years of devisive statements and he's practically cannonized as a saint before he even takes office.

 

He can say whatever he likes in a "speech." However I still know he's been in Washington 47+ years and hasn't lifted a finger for the LGBT community.

 

To quote Kevin Bacon from "A Few Good Men:" These are the facts. And they are undisputed.

 

P.S. It just occured to me when talking with a friend that I hope every legal challenge is made regarding the election and truly hope that each and every one turns out in Biden's favor. You see, without he big, orange boogeyman to use as a scapegoat, leftists will have no one to blame as the country collapses further and leftists start to turn on each other.

 

I just need to keep a steady supply of popcorn for the show.

Wichita, Democrat supporters will never let you win this discussion due to a closed mind to find the truth in what is actually out there. They believe only what democrat politicians tell them. Even lies. It all comes down to whether or not the republican party will get a judge to order a recount. If it doesn't happen, we just have to hope Biden doesn't shut down the country worse than the last shut down which cost thousands their jobs, and forced hundreds of businesses to perminently close their doors.

Link to post

So we can't trust any media that doesn't see the election conspiracies in multiple states run by both Democrats and Republicans? Georgia's a liberal state that's gaming the election?  

 

We're closed minded, you tell us. We don't believe in facts. You have sources telling you about 'sharpie gate' and ballots being tossed from sources more trustworthy than the ones we look at?  Add a link. Show us, don't just tell us.

 

Judges of all types have thrown out almost every Trump lawsuit due to lack of evidence. The only 'wins' have been judges telling states to count votes the way they already were counting the votes.

Sadly, you're not wrong. The "party of tolerance" is anything but. I'm not saying the GOP is some beacon of light, but at least they try to distance themselves from their fringe whackos.

 

Regarding Biden's oh-so-wonderful virus plan... His attack ads said he'd "shut down the virus, not the country." Yet I've already seen one article saying he's considering a shutdown. Oh and he's consulting, of all people, Dick Cheney on foreighn affairs. Some on twitter are already turning on him... before he's even taken office. It's truly a hilarious thing to see.

 

One thing that gives me a wonderful feel is the drug company saying they've found a 90% effective vaccine (condoms claim a 97% rate, but people still get pregnant, but whatever).

 

See, the vaccine has been found and will a few million doses by the end of the year. But guess who's still President and whose administration still has approval authority? That's right... if the lefties really want to be safe from the virus, they'll have to get a little Trump in 'em. 😂😂😂

The easiest to point your error out to you is to remind you how for 3 YEARS liberals screamed about Russia collusion rigging the election and now that we have an alled liberal winner, it's "Oh there's no way the election could have been rigged."

 

You can't have it both ways. If the 2016 election was vulnerable to interference, so is this one. 

 

In this election:

Rampant and obvious media bias (yes, even against Tulsi and Bernie)

Obvious and proven tech company censorship and interference (twitter and facebook)

Vulnerable voting machines

Strange software "glitches"

GOP observers kicked out of polling center in violation of federal law

Harris electioneering in Ohio (on camera, no less)

And now Giuliani allrges 450,000 votes in PA are not legal

 

Even if "sharpiegate" is BS, the above list will forever taint this election and our entire electoral process going forward. The only way to stop that is for Biden to show that "unity" he's spouting off about and with Trump to ensure every allegation is fully investigated.

 

But he won't.

This is not aimed at anyone in particular  .. BUT,

I have found in life that when we easily accept and embrace conspiracy theories it actually is the result of a deep-seated unhappiness in the depths of our own Life

It takes great effort and self-reflection to look deep inside and ask ourselves .. why am I unhappy.  For many of us here, and least one of the answers is obvious.  But there are often other reasons we choose to ignore.


This will not change by clinging to false narratives of why one side or the other is at fault, or corrupt, or the source of everything that is wrong in the world.


The source of politcal power (probably forever, but now supercharged by media and social networks) is to create distinctions that lead to division and turmoil.  As Coldplay's song Politik says ... in confusion, confidence


The ONLY thing we can really change, is what we choose to embrace within our own hearts ... that can be suspicion and negativity .. or it can be value and compassion.  Its OUR individual choice.  Its OUR individual freedom to choose our path.

On this Forum we are all Brothers and Sisters (... sometimes Both 😊)  Let's embrace each other as such ❤️

I'm going to agree that we should try to get along, so in fairness, I'm going to write about crazy things my side believes. Here's a list of recent topics:

Republicans booked a loading dock at a gardening center instead of a luxury hotel for a press conference at "The Four Seasons" in Philadelphia.

 

First witness in said presser, said to be a PA poll worker, was someone thought to live in NJ, known for running repeatedly for office there, and a convicted sex offender.

 

And that the head of the President's legal team has no law degree, in fact has no degree at all, which might explain why the lawsuits keep failing.  Also, he has covid.

 

The Trump family has a longtime history of voting by mail , even posing for pictures with their mail-in ballots.

 

Those are crazy things my side talks about. No one would possibly believe that's all real.

The Left is notorious for turning on itself for sure.

I don't think Biden will actually be able to get much of anything of consequence through the senate anyway.

And then despite how the GOP has been playing it, Biden is hardly a leftist - more like center-right.

As I've already said, I don't expect much from this administration.

It would be nice not to have to listen to the Orange One, but that isn't likely to be the case either.

But we'll get by somehow.

I don’t know... I didn’t mind listening to Trump. He has some outstandingly ridiculous quotes. 

 

“I stand by nothing.”

 

Still, I’d rather a president who “says mean things” and gets things done (such as...oh I don’t know... 3 peace deals in the Middle East.... “little things” like that) rather than a president who supports rioters. But that’s just me. 
 

I live in a red state that’s proud of its self and home defense laws. And I’m not near any major cities. So I figure I’ll be alright as the leftist cities crumble. The nearest “leftist” city in my state is a minimum of 3.5 hours away. Plus, our police around here know we value them. So there’s no chance of any “blue flu” around here as there are in other cities. 
 

So... again... I just need to keep the popcorn flowing and maybe some Kleenex nearby for when I’m laughing so hard tears stream down my face.

 

Its going to be entertaining.

I don't think these are anything more than acknowledging the status quo, and hardly to be real "peace deals".  Peace in the middle east is a pipe dream.  It is funny how all this came out right before election day.

The articles disagree with the take that the election was stolen, and probably would that the VP elect is the antichrist if that was something you could research, but ok!

That is tremendously disrespectful of each and every person's personal judgment.

 

I've lived in NY since 1984.  I have completely and utterly despised Donald Trump since I became aware of him as a person in the early 1990's.  I personally know a caterer that he completely stiffed after she provided catering service for a big party.  He said that she should consider that she served him as reward enough.  In my opinion, a typically Republican attitude towards women.

 

You should understand that Fox News' business model is to make -crap- up.  The founder of Fox News, when he retired, stated that it was the original business model of Fox News.  It is simply cheaper to make stuff up in the back room rather than hire reporters.  Remember, everything Fox News accuses anyone of is simply something they thought of themselves.  -- source is NPR, from an audio clip of Roger Ailes after he retired.

 

When Fox News talks about need to recount and "fake" anything, they are just spreading fear and doubt, with no basis in fact.  They have no facts whatsoever, it's all made up.

 

Things I know personally:

 

*  There is no rioting whatsoever in New York.

*  I know six people who died of Covid, one of whom was a relative of my partner, in Vermont, in March

*  My partner and I had Covid in March.

*  The supreme court violated Florida's state rights in the Bush election.  States have their own jurisdiction over voting.  It doesn't matter how corrupt they are or what their process is.

 

It would be worse if it were controlled from D.C.  Just imagine if Trump had personal control over the elections.  Can you honestly say that he would be fair and impartial and count all of the votes?  No more would Trump be honest than Robert Mugabe of Zimbabwe.  In fact, I consider Trump a worse criminal than Mugabe, has lower morals, and is worse for America.  Those things are my personal opinion.

 

By the way, citing "the articles" is not citing a source, merely casting fear and doubt.  Do you really want to be responsible for spreading misinformation and undermining America?  Clearly state your sources or make clear that statements are your personal opinion or from your own experience.  Otherwise you are just a troll blowing smoke at us and you are working hard to destroy America.  People like you have worked so hard to undermine America and destroy all the things I have loved about it my whole life.

 

It doesn't matter what each State's process is.  It is their right to conduct their process themselves and it is fundamental to America that it be so and that no central agent controls it.

      We transgender people treat one another like garbage. I've contributed quite a bit here already during my short time, with a total of 3 trans women interacting with me out of dozens. We don't support one another much, that's why we can't make friends.   I'll be deleting my account here as soon as I find out how. I don't need the same kind of attitude here that I get in real life.

      I never was into cutting myself, but I did stuff larger and larger objects deep as possible up my butt. If it didn't hurt, it wasn't big or deep enough. I did testicle stirring with syringe needles to try to kill those horrible things between my legs. I had even plans of castrating myself, either by burdizzo or surgery. Came real close to doing it several times. Now that I have come out to my wife and started transitioning, I rarely get the urge to do these things. When I do, I think about the fact that I might need that stuff for vaginalplasty. That helps. There may just be a light at the end of this tunnel. I've never mentioned this to anyone. This life seems so difficult. It shouldn't be that way. My wife doesn't understand dysphoria. She just keeps telling me, "Why can't you just be a woman to yourself and not let anyone else know". Hell, I barely understand it myself, but I have it. Always there to torture me.   Jamie

      Hi Tomi I'm in the VA Health Care system, and for three months, I've been in MtF transition. The VA is seriously committed to helping people like me, with HRT, a Gender Therapist, an online Trans group, and other occasional needs. I really appreciate it all; however,  they "chart" everything into my medical file, which is available to every medical professional in the VA across the country and I suppose in military hospitals world-wide.   Without the VA, I couldn't afford it, sooo, "Screw it," I said. I just stopped worrying about it. They're supposed to maintain confidentiality, but if they don't, t'hell with it. I don't know these people, they're not my judge or family members, and, it's none of their business anyway, unless they're treating me. You are violating no policy with HRT [if your employer has such a policy, it's not legal -- see recent discussion under "Thank you, Joe], but they would be in violation of HIPAA. I figured they've got a lot more to loose.    Let me add my welcome ~~Big hug, from Lee~~

      Ive gone most of my life now with no friends of any kind due to health issues. I recently met a couple people online on an app. But never managed to see them again,and i felt i made such an embarressment of myself on it I had to just delete it. Most of my life ive hardly even met people my own generation let alone people i can relate to. All that is slowly beginning to change but it takes time,especially with covid now. I guess this is just me saying youre not alone in the boat.

      I lived in Tacoma Washington between 1975 and 1985. Beautiful country. Had to get used to working in the rain. Was vegetarian for all that time out there. Like you I ate eggs and dairy. Felt great. Health food stores and vegetarian restaurants were plentiful. Moved to north end of Chicago for 6 months after that. Plenty of health food stores there also. then to Central Illinois in the middle of farm country. Health food stores scarce here. Ended up becoming a meat eater again. It's ok though. Learned some healthy eating habits in Tacoma, Like eating the peels with potatoes, and making a salad with everything but the kitchen sink in it, and baking  instead of frying. My family thought I was nuts, but I'm healthier than them. Now days, grocery stores are carrying better food. I do like a good cup of coffee. I have a grind and brew machine. I like 8 o'clock brand with cold stone creamer.   Have a great day all.   Jamie

      For me friends have always been few and far between, trans or non trans. This partially attributed to my having trust issues and partially because of my nature as a being.

      Thanks again everyone for sharing all your mascara advice! I ordered the eyelash curler and magnifying mirror, so I look forward to getting them soon and experimenting with renewed enthusiasm. One of my girlfriends warned me last night that mascara can actually damage your lashes with long-term regular use. Can anyone comment on that? I'm using natural cosmetics just in case this is a thing and hoping it's better for my skin/body.   Love, ~Audrey.

      @Denisenj I relate to your struggle to meet others in the transgender community. The people I see regularly are all cisgender, and they're great people I love very much, but I also felt I needed friends who could relate to what I was going through on a more personal level. One of the main reasons I joined the forums here was to start building those kinds of friendships, and I'm so glad I did. The online space isn't the same as in-person of course, and yes the pandemic has made doing anything in-person so much more difficult anyway. But I feel much more connected now than I did before joining the forums. I do think that trust is important as you describe, and I know I feel very vulnerable and exposed in unfamiliar circles but building trust and achieving emotional closeness comes with time. Support groups are also a great idea as others have suggested. One of the few positive effects of the pandemic is that many organizations have stepped up their virtual offerings, so things exist now that may never have existed a year ago that you can connect to no matter where you are. Hope these thoughts help!   Love, ~Audrey.

      I have seen many of those sites, and they are not helping themselves.  By insisting on certain standards of "beauty" they paste a target on their backs, and then isolate to keep from being shot down.  It is the isolation that will keep them from becoming authentic members of their broader communities of Trans and Cis IRL.  It is those actions that give credence to the cis population idea that we are playing dress-up as opposed to real identities.   I have some "Glam" pictures of myself, and they are the ones that broadcast me as Trans and not day to day female (or NB in some cases).  The Glam shots were taken at Trans conferences where I was in a group of a few hundred Trans individuals of CD  up to post surgical people. I like to see them every now and then, but it is not my daily wear which for now is plain cotton underpants, sweat slacks and my supply of T-shirts from various events I attended in the past.  No one looks twice at me, and no misreading of who I am.  If they wonder, it is not about my making a mistake in my wardrobe or combed, but not styled hair and thus they can go ahead and wonder if they have nothing better to do with their time.  It is not my business or doing.  Just my acquired wisdom is that you are more perfect if you are imperfect, if the shoes are flats, and the hair is a little mussed, or if you do not have eyelashes or eyebrows done perfectly then you are the most comfortable, least worried, and probably much happier.

      What Sally said.  My sephora rep/god turned my on to this technique and products.  The first is a color corrector, used to cover blues /shadow.  it double duties for me since I have some spider veins on my chin.  My beard is mostly white/grey at this point but grows wicked fast.  He also said a baked powder foundation is key. Liquid ones tend to have too much "shine" and early stubble will show through fast.  The powders tend to disguise it better.  The picture here has the corrector on my hand so you can see how it covers the blues from veins. I applied some powder over it on the left side.   It was a real quick job and I did too much corrector and not enough powder but you can see the results.

      I remember driving on this stretch of road many years ago, during a summer road trip. "Highway to Heaven," as I remember it was described?   This is so relatable. It's the biggest stumbling block for my partner, being visible as a lesbian couple in the world. On the one hand, she says she has no problem with same-sex couples and everything LGBTQ, in fact we are friends with a few same-sex couples who are among our neighbors. Yet, when it's *her* relationship that is same-sex, it's suddenly a different story. Rigid, gender-binary ideas of how to be in a relationship are important, but they're also the very things that I'm moving away from, because the cis male role just isn't me. NYC is just about the safest place to be in any kind of relationship so it's not that. She's shared that it's hard to see me adopt the "feminine" role, perhaps seeing me as competition as @Willow describes. However, from my point of view, she will always be more feminine but I think that's the envy rooted in gender dysphoria talking. We speak about these problems together, and maybe it's better now than it was at first, but I fear that deep down, my partner is just not okay with all of this. If we break up in the future, this will be why. Sorry to hear that the tension between you and your wife has created an environment where it's so uncomfortable to be in the new home you worked so hard to buy and fix up. p.s. Love the new profile pic!   I've been a vegetarian for 17 years now, and I haven't looked back. I do eat a little dairy and eggs, cheese is a weakness of mine and those ingredients hide in a lot of foods, but otherwise I'm mostly vegan too. I'll eat salmon on rare occasion though. I thought I would miss eating meat, and maybe the first Thanksgiving and Christmas were difficult to break away from traditional ideas of eating turkey or ham, but the truth is I don't miss it anymore. Now my diet is pretty much automatic. It helps a lot that my partner has a similar diet. We recently got the "Plant Based Cookbook" from America's Test Kitchen that's got lots of great veggie and vegan recipes we're hoping to try, the Moroccan Lentil Soup that we're making tonight is in there.   @Chloe Cozee Glad to hear that your migraine has gone away! I have to be careful about coffee vs. water intake or I'll have the same issue, I feel like HRT has made me more prone to headaches of all kinds.   Feeling pretty positive this morning. I had a really fun girls night last night over Zoom. I can't stand watching the Bachelor, but I'll do practically anything if it means spending time with these friends, they have been so amazingly supportive and inclusive since I came out. Got a personalized eye makeup tutorial and that felt nice, but I really need the eyelash curler and magnifying mirror (now ordered and on the way!). I'm paying the price a little bit from staying up way later than I should have, they are on the West Coast so I was up until about 2am my time. At least it's been super quiet so I could sleep in.   I hope everyone has a fabulous Sunday!   Love, ~Audrey.
