    And we wouldn't want votes to sway an election?

    The prospect of mail in ballots is one fraught with the possibility of fraud. If both sides were pushing for it, fine. If either single side is pushing for it, their motives are suspect. If we can stand in line at Wal Mart, we can stand in line to vote. The absentee ballot system as it is in place works as intended. There is zero need to expand it to a nationwide program. Maybe someday if it has broad based bipartisan support and a way to authenticate it like the current absentee system. Until then, no thanks.

    So if there were a specific agenda on one side to reduce voting, that's how we would know it's suspect:

    Really relevant. Obscure individual from 40 years ago that has zero to do with today. And not even in the context of my comment. Almost textbook. SMDH...


    You're correct, Nick. We were typing at the same time.

    The topic is mail voting due to Coronavirus, the debate is the possibility of voter fraud vs the reality of voter reduction. If you feel this is too contentious a subject for the thread, it can be reserved for Underground.

    I'm just watching select individuals telling me to not to start conflicts, then the next dozen posts are people trying to start conflicts. It's mildly entertaining, but I was really hoping for something more informative.

    And see post 382.

    One of the Ambassadors/trainers just strolled by with ~eight new hires in tow walking distantly behind him; he came to a stop to talk to somebody and the entire group just naturally all stopped roughly six feet from each other with no one providing direction or saying anything, like watching a spring re-compress. These younger folks are going to be different..

    Went through a local Taco Hell for dinner and I gotta say I was impressed with their anti corona spread way. Cash or card. Cash, they had some pre-sanitized "change" ready. Card, they hand you the card scanner out the window and you take it from there. I used a card. They ask if you'd like a receipt. "No thanks" I said. Then they hand your stuff to you on a tray and you remove it from said tray.

    Not 100% fool proof but definitely the best attempt at stopping the spread I've seen at a fast food joint yet.

    Went by a Target store for a mothers day gift and it was like 5x more packed than at Christmas. The crowd was about 50/50 masked. Voluntary. Long check out lines and folks were plenty spread out without "stand here" dots or lines on the floor. We found no line at the electronic counter and checked out there.

    It was good to see so many folks voluntarily attempting to slow the spread, yet keep living life as normal as practical.

    Indeed. It ain’t rocket surgery. If you want to talk about how your voting experience has changed during the pandemic, that is on topic. But this party versus that party, that is Underground material. That should be pretty self-explanatory.
