Asians have to see themselves as a victim group, or, horror of horrors, they might continue leaving for the Republican Party.
Hello? Hello! Anyone out there?

I'm going to tune in to the impeachment trial later to see if it is really being run by Australian marsupials.

Very sad news. RIP, DrJ.

Porch, if the electoral vote isn't accepted, the vote for President goes to the House. For this vote, each state gets one vote. The individual representatives don't vote individually. There will be 50 votes, one from each state. More than 25 states have majority Republican delegations.

So Grassley could pull the "count all of them" trick instead of Pence? Cool!

Thanks, Mel. Looks like my plan would work, since they seem to be accepting both sets of electors from the contested 7 states. I guess they intend to sort them out and deny the Republican ones, but Pence should have quite a bit of control of that process.

Mel, what rule change is that? I must have missed that.

Another Bob, I don't think they will get away with it. I think the most likely result will be to have that count refused by the House and the Senate. That should throw it into the House, where there is one vote per state, not one vote per representative. Trump wins. And in the Senate, where they would vote for VP, even if the Republicans lose both Georgia seats, the vote would likely come to a tie, where Pence would vote to break the tie, and remain VP.

Thanks to anyone who can help get the message to Pence. I don't care abut who gets credit, I just want this to get fixed.

BuffyUK: Thanks. Anyone else have other suggestions I can also send this to?

Clarice, I need your help on this. There is an easy way to "fix" the election problem. Instead of Pence deciding which votes to accept, he should accept all of them. That is, he should accept both sets of votes from the competing states. Those seven states make up 84 votes. Remove those from Biden's total, and he has 222 to Trump's 232. Add them back in to both and Biden has 306 to Trump's 316. The Democrats are put into a no win situation by this. If both Houses of Congress accept this result, Trump is President. If only one House rejects it, my understanding is that it stands, and Trump is President. If both Houses reject it, it goes to the House for a vote, and Trump is President. If the Supreme Court is called in and rejects it, it goes to the House, and Trump is President. The only other option is to have each of the states in question choose which set is legitimate. The legislatures are supreme in this situation, and Trump is President. I have no means of getting this solution to Mike Pence. You are probably no more than 2 or three degrees of separation from Pence. You could get someone to suggest this directly to Pence (not his staff: I trust almost no one in DC). If no one else has suggested this to the VP, it's critical that it get suggested today, before the count tomorrow.

We own the Republican party now. 74 million legal, counted votes, and another few million votes switched away from Trump underscore that. The Uniparty is the opposition, but I'm pretty sure that there are actually more of us than there are of them. It will take a while for the New Republican Party to coalesce, but it will. If we still have a country at that point, the Uniparty is history.

fdcol, we can have our two party system in working order as soon as next year if we wish. All we have to do is establish control (through our votes) of the Republican Party. There are certainly enough of us to do so.

I got a message a bit ago, with links (which I am afraid to open), that says WikiLeaks just dumped all of their files online. Anyone else heard this?

And, CCGirl, the deal with the McRib is that it is an extremely good marketing gimmick, and not a bad sammich.

CCGirl, I would love to wear the iguana, but it's not actually a picture of me. I just like it. Sort of like the name. I found the name "Buford Gooch" carved into a set of bleachers at a high school over 50 years ago. It's my favorite "AKA".

I was elected to office (County Board of Directors) as a Republican in November. I will maintain the party affiliation. I will not support any GOPe knotheads. I will recruit others who won't support the status quo. It is our party now, not theirs. They are welcome to stay if they change their ways. They will not be in charge.
