So when do you get into the "Christmas Spirit," if at all?

Just had this discussion with my significant other. She has had decorations up for a couple of weeks. I was trying to explain that I was more of a mid December person. A week or two of Christmas carols is plenty for me.

There certainly is not any wrong answer. Everyone is different.

On the other hand I keep my fake 4' tree up all year round. It gets decorated for Christmas, Valentine's, Easter, 4th of July, etc. Mostly it is just a night light that goes out around 5am.....

Free speech tv is having its fund drive. Just a reminder.

If this is any violation of DU rules, I will gladly delete the post.

Sorry for another GHWB thread, but I have not watched any of today's activities. I appreciate his

WWII service. I am sorry for the family. That's about all I can say.
Otherwise I just feel oddly ambivalent. Not angry or vengeful. No tears. Certainly no joy. Wish I had something more profound to say.
Whatever your thoughts are, more power to you. I am just not in mourning.

If this has been addressed (uncounted ballots) I apologize. But why are the ballots locked away

at that postal service center in Opalocka(?), FL, not able to be counted if they were postmarked in time? Obviously if the building is on lock down as a crime scene there was no way to get the votes in on time.

Okay, I am hesitant to post this. (Because I may be FOS) But let us look at the lead up to 2020.

We already know that voter suppression is real and it is at least sophisticated enough to affect certain states and precincts.

I wonder what the cumulative effect would be if certain heavily Dem voting precincts in swing states especially were shut down by bombs or bomb threats.

In states that are controlled bt Repubs would they allow delays and recounts? All states are different.

Do people even know how mail rooms and distribution even work in large organizations?

If you want to mail a bomb, anthrax or whatever to someone you want to kill, you have to realize that the first 2 or 3 people that handle the package or envelope in any large organization are NOT the recipient (not including the delivery people). I have had that responsibility on my staff for many years. That is why they have protocol for that sort of thing in these organizations. You are just as likely to kill or maim someone that agrees with you politically (somewhat) as you are to do the same to your target. It is a high degree of failure/low degree of success operation.
Unless you just want to harm someone and are really just wanting to strike out it just is a bad strategy. You may blow up a comrade.

Just speculation. If I was a local LEO and had seen this van periodically in my patrol area,

would I have had a "Hmmmm" moment when these bombs started showing up? Especially in DWS's district.

Question for any DU real estate/legal experts. (If I am on wrong forum please advise).

My 98 year old Democrat neighbor is worried. Our entire street was just surveyed, either at the request of the town or the owner of the property next to her. The owner may want to develop the property (good chance) as it is in a prime downtown location. Her house was built in the 1940's and she moved there either late 50's or early 60's. But this survey is showing her losing about twenty feet that she and her family, kids, etc., have maintained and mowed for over half a century (without records ).
I am on the opposite side of the street and am not affected, but I hate for her to be worried.

We also found out that her family has been mowing and maintain a patch of ground (approximately 15' x 100') that is now actually being found to belong to the town, on a different side of the property….for over 50 years.

She has never built any permanent structures across the boundary, other than a metal clothesline which is maybe 40-50 years old. I told her daughter that it would be well worth the price to consult with a good real estate attorney and also advised her to go to the county offices and ask to have someone search the archives for the original survey. This is a small mountaion town so I am not optimistic about what will be there.

Any advice? Thanks. GOTV!!!

Does an FBI investigation bolster the chances of a local investigation in Maryland?

The local police chief (or was it sheriff?) had already said he would open an investigation if asked to. Most opinions I read here on DU seemed to think the local DA would not take the case. However, if a legitimate FBI investigation, along with the huge amount of publicity related to it, were to take place would that possibly change the thinking of local authorities?
I think it is possible.

So,assuming Kavanaugh gets confirmed, but Avenatti's client pursues criminal charges in Maryland

Would they then be able to subpoena the thousands of pages of documents that the Repubs refused to release?
