    I think we need to look at all of it, do internal control testing on it, and come up with an updated systems that addresses all concerns.

    While I don't think it materially impacts the elections, there are reports every election that bring into question results.

    Dead people should not show up in audits as having voted, for example. While that problem only happens a miniscule amount, it detracts from confidence in the system, and it simply should not happen.

    I am not one for centralized power, but I do find how we elect the most powerful person in the world based upon thousands of different voting districts with different rules, machines, protocols, etc. to be fucking insane.

    My step-grandfather passed and then my grandma and in the chaos, we lost his death certificate. He stayed on the voter rolls. In order to remove him, we had to pay $20 to our county and then deliver the certificate to…our county in order to remove him. I refuse on principle.

    Anyway, what also doesn’t help is the firehose of falsehoods Trump has been spewing for a year now, the 3/4 of the GOP that’s gone along with it, and the stupid, fake recounts going on that he’s breathing air into with his statements.

    It’s crazy to me the GOP are talking about something that doesn’t really matter when it comes to election results, especially when you compare it to undermining the entire process.

    As much as I don't like them, I don't want them to be disillusioned either. You sometimes have to make concessions to the stupidity of your own citizenry.

    It bothers me that the Democrats are so adamant on a free for all way of voting. Of course the Republicans will go against this when they lose. To me it isn't what the recounts have shown us a small percentage of bad votes. It's the principle of things and there is no reason to keep it a free for all with such a piss poor way of elections.

    If this would somehow turn around and bite the Dems next election, they would be crying voter fraud 10 times more than the Republicans did.

    It's not just that it is a misdemeanor, it's that they are no longer processing many misdemeanors.

    Businesses will simply close up shop, it doesn't take a rocket scientist.

    Well I am not a rocket scientist but we are a year into "defund the police" as being a national narrative. Results don't seem to be working but I do know its the GOP's fault since apparantely police are now included as infrastructure and we know the GOP are against it.

    Unless I am missing something, it appears our major cities are experiencing huge peaks in violent and non-violent crim. Yes I know its Trump's fault. Its my fault for being a white heterosexual American pushing systemic racism for 52 years. However with all that, the defund movement and the current reforms on Police don't seem to be counteracting all of the blame set upon my shoulders

    I know I know I know. Lets give Biden and Kamala a chance. They inherited this problem from Trump, Obama, Bush, Clinton, etc. They got it. Pelosi hasn't had a chance to lead since she has been in the House. I get it. AOC just got more power. It will take time for police reform to truly have the positive effect on the community. We do know that the GOP is sucking the blood from children and Biden has to deal with that.

    Just want to know when the Summer of Love will be truly a Season of Love?

    Minnesota fourth-graders are given 'equity survey' on race and gender and are told by teacher told NOT to skip questions (even if they don't understand them) and not to tell their parents

    One question asked the students what gender they identify with which caused some confusion. A young boy in Hayley's class asked the teacher if his mom could explain the question to him.
    The teacher denied the student's request telling him that he could not ask his mother and that the class was not to repeat the questions to their parents.
