Repubs are purging voting rolls....

What can people in those states do to:
A) find out if they have been purged.
b) get back on the rolls.

I live in WA state, and we don't seem to have any of that, but then, we are a blue state.

Can somebody clue me in?

I answered a post yesterday with this. 2 answers that didn't speak to the question...

I'd like to post as an OP and see if anybody can comment.

trump lost the popular vote by 3 million.
trump won the electoral clusterfuck by a grand total of 77,000 votes in 3 key states. Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, and Michigan.
His approval in those states... and virtually every other state... has dropped.

Take a look... https://morningconsult.com/tracking-trump-2/

Yes, I know about voter suppression, gerrymandering, and I believe we've seen vote-stealing. We'll see those things in 2020.

But I can't believe that trump's low approval rate and high disapproval rate leads anywhere but a loss.

Show me how I'm wrong.

So... trump is impeached... and even removed. Is that the end of investigations?

The trumpians will never accept his removal unless ALL the shit comes out...the taxes, the Russians, the emoluments, the dumbshit spawn and S-in-L, the whole enchilada.
They still may not accept it, but it will be harder for them to deny.
Congress has to keep investigating.
trump is a cancer, and you don't win with cancer if you just take out part of the tumor. You have to cut until you reach health tissue, and with trump, that will be difficult.
I've shifted from writing my Reps and Senator to urge impeachment to writing them demanding that they root trumpism out - root and branch.

About Epstein.....Stalin said it best....

(At this point, I have NO idea where I picked this up. Could have been at DU. My old head is swimming. Have you folks noticed that there are about 5 major news items a day that make you say "WTFF???" And then there's follow-ups on all of them. Information/outrage overload!! Anyway... here...)

Racism.... unbelievable.

I turned to Rush Limbaugh today to get some inkling about how the RWNJs are responding to the "send them back" thing.
After interminable ads for sketchy products and services, one of the "comedy" ads that Rush has came on....
All paraphrased, since I wasn't recording.

Voiceover advertising a fictional school... then
(in a sterotypical Middle Eastern voice/accent) "I am so glad to be in America and learning new things. I am learning to fly, and learning wiring diagrams and so many things. I am also learning to hate America more than I ever did before from my teacher, Mr. Shabaz."
(Mr Shabaz, in a stereotypical black American voice/accent) "Kill all the crackers."
... and more in that same vein.

I couldn't listen any more. Less than 30 seconds was all I could take.

JFC! What is WRONG with those people? Rhetorical question, I know.

Little help here... Rawstory...

For some reason, Raw Story won't open for me. Just a blank white page. Was working yesterday, and my wife gets it just fine.
Anybody know what's up..

Anybody know how I can give expensive prescription drugs to people who need them..?

I just went off a $450 per month medication. Permanently.
Any way I can give the remainder of my pills to somebody who is a little short of cash.
NOT an opiate.... it's a heart medication.
