Desperate, crazy anti-Warnock ad in Georgia:

"Joe Biden and Raphael Warnock believe a man can get pregnant. They believe a boy can become a girl by giving him female hormones and surgical amputation. Tell Warnock and Biden Hands off our kids."

Because Biden is forcing transgender kids to change? It's ridiculous, and I fully expect it to be a Qanon talking bullshit by dinnertime.

Cross-posted from GD: Mail truck potentially carrying absentee ballots 'burned to a crisp'

https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.fox5atlanta.com/news/fire-burns-mail-truck-in-south-georgia-potentially-burning-absentee-ballots-officials-say.amp

BAKER COUNTY, Ga. - A mail truck potentially carrying absentee ballots in south Georgia caught fire on Monday.

Photos shared by the Baker County Sheriff’s Office shows the Jeep fully engulfed in flames along a rural roadway about ten miles southwest of Albany.

The mail carrier was not injured.

Deputies say the Newton Post Office has a list of packages and mail that was being delivered along the route.

It sounds like the county already knows what absentee ballots will need to be reissued. Cue the MAGAt idiots to proclaim Ds are cheating.

I voted early in Ga, and as I thanked the poll workers,

one of them said, "It's been a long day." I asked if it was because of the machines, and she said, "No, it was some people," but she would not elaborate any further. I guess some MAGAts or election deniers were pissed about the machines.

I'm sick of the lies in the R election ads, BTW. Especially the anti-Warnock ads and the pro-Walker bs.

Good grief. 5 emails from Nevada's Masto in one day.

I rarely get more than two per day from other candidates. I don't even know how I got on her list.

A prolife young man came to my door with a flyer.

I was in a good mood, so I talked to him about why I'm pro-choice:
1. women don't go through 7 months of pregnancy misery and suddenly wake up and make an appointment for an abortion like it was a pedicure.
2. I explained that the vast majority of abortions are first term, and later term abortions are usually due to fetal anomalies incompatible with life.
3. Continuing a pregnancy and raising a child with disabilities can bankrupt a family, and state help isn't consistent between states.
4. I don't want a Washington lawyer who doesn't know the ok of pregnancy, like what an ectopic pregnancy is, making that decision for me and my doctor.
5. If the government can tell you that you must have a baby, then they eventually will have the power to tell you that you can't.
6. I claimed the "prolife" mantle, explaining I am for a woman and her family making these decisions, not the government.

He had an enlightened look on his face.

If Herschel Walker ends up in the Senate,

my guess is that he'll be investigated for outrageous ethics charges before he's halfway through his term.

Or maybe he'll try to play Russian Roulette while in the chamber.

Or maybe a dozen interns will be suing him for child support. (Ugh)

I'm wishing all your prayers are

answered as you break your fast, and that peace envelops you like a soft warm blanket until the shofar sounds. ✡️

I need & can't find paragraph about "We are all Stardust". I think Carl Sagan

authored it. I think it's more like for a eulogy.

Anyone ever go crazy in front of the hospice people?

I did recently. The day before I had my first ever bad blood work revealed, and I woke up with about 50% hearing loss in one ear from the stress of becoming unhealthy, taking care of my dementia-crazed MIL, and managing my adult son's autism. My MIL was losing theability to feed herself, and I suddenly declared "I can't do it." I was just an emotional tirade from caregiver fatigue.

I swear, they started treating me like a criminal like they were one bad word away from calling APS. Then the nurse told me she wouldn't be available for awhile because she was going on a nice weekend trip to the beach. (They know I rarely am able to leave the house.) Just rub it in.
