I suggest medical marijuana, or failing that, some dank vapes.

Does everyone recall the shock...the horror...the disbelief...and the absolute sadness we all felt the last time we gathered for this ritual?

We got some revenge two years ago when we took the house. But it was only a blocking move, there weren't any more shenanigans like the Trump tax cuts, but He has still managed to f*ck up just about everything he's touched.

I have said from the getgo that this assh*le could never get re-elected. I'm going into this evening certain of victory. But I am shocked...

SHOCKED I tell ya!

That I don't feel absolutely sure about this.

The Trump phenomenon is unprecedented.

I've spent most of today watching 1950's scifi movies along with some historical documentaries from the History Vault. I'll continue to do so until my normal bedtime around 2300 hrs and find out who won in the AM if the results are known.

Well, I'll check in here ever so often just to see what's new.

I expect Biden to win fairly easily, but it will be interesting to see if Georgia goes blue. I suspect it has a good chance of doing so. Our two senate races are probably headed for a runoff, one for sure, the other one most likely. My congressman will win with 80% of the vote.

Oh well, back to Digging for the Truth from the History Vault and then, It came from Outer Space with James Arness as the Thing.


It's high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first instead of their political party. For way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

As for the religious aspect...I have smudged the house with the four sacred medicines and have beseeched Michabo The Great Hare, and Coyote The Trickster, to have mercy on a brother down on his luck. Samhain just passed and I called on the Ancients, to intervene if they could. I sent entreatments to Odin the All Father, to get a handle on Loki...

It is in their hands now....

Four years ago the election gave me the worst birthday I ever had.
Got two ways to smooth it this year.
Directv died...glass half full kinda thing.
And rec pot edibles in Michigan has been put into play this evening. ;-)
Hoping for a much happier go around this year. Y'all enjoy.

2016... shivers...

election day voting numbers by party registration suggest that not enough republicans have turned out in Florida.

Nate Silver

Will depend on how the indys break there

Signals from team trump that their PA gotv isnt quite there either

Straws in the wind at this stage.

Obama wasn't perfect but staying up on election night felt like it was out of some hope for the future. Tonight it feels more like staying up to check that your drunk friend doesn't s*** himself.

aaand the first result of the night:

After a tough battle, wine has been declared the victor by most of the networks. Beer gave a surly concession speech blaming the 3rd party candidate Gin&tonic for splitting the vote.
