Just to wish you guys all the very best for today. I know it won’t be easy, whatever happens, but I have my fingers crossed that you’ll avoid the worst outcome. Go give him hell at the ballot box !

Could there be any greater conceit, than for someone to believe that the universe has to be simple enough for them to be able to understand it ?

Anecdote: Dallas County
Just so ya'll know. I got my Texas Absentee Ballot on 23 Sept in Munich, filled it out and submitted it to the German postal authorities (Deutsche Postamt) a day later on 24 Sept. I tracked its course first through the German system which placed it on the US East Coast on 28 Sept. Then through the Texas Track My Ballot website I saw that it got accepted and processed on 3 Oct. At the Dallas County Elections Offices, (Toni Pippins-Pool head administrator).

I was damn well pleased, bug in a rug and soforth.

Good Luck to everyone today.

Phats Election Day Prediction
I do not cl;aim to be a prophet of any sort, but simply use my common sense and the atmosphere of the people that I live in. Being a grocery clerk, I talk daily with a lot of people from a wide variety of backgrounds.

So here is my Election Day Prediction, at 630 am Denver Time.

President: Joe Biden will win by roughly the same margin that Trump defeated Hillary. He will dominate the popular vote yet will squeak through in the electoral college by a margin of roughly 40 votes.

The Democrats will now hold the House(by an even larger margin than before)
as wello as narrowly taking control of the Senate.

The Christian Prophets will be wrong because of

Ezekiel 13:17:NKJV writes:

“Likewise, son of man, set your face against the daughters of your people, who prophesy out of their own heart; prophesy against them,.


And:

Jeremiah 23:16 writes:

Thus says the LORD of hosts: “Do not listen to the words of the prophets who prophesy to you. They make you worthless; They speak a vision of their own heart, Not from the mouth of the LORD.

.

I dont agree with jar in that they are satanic---but I do think that they simply told conservative Christians what they wanted to hear anyway. They sold out.

LOL

The whole idea of Satan as some actual force is simply laughable.

They simply did what made them richer and more powerful.

What is so pitiful is that Conservative Evangelical Christians are so totally incapable of thinking that they will not ever see or believe they are getting fucked daily by Christian Profits.

That's cute, there's escape clauses for prophesy. Handy that.

As prophesies are ALWAYS wrong, I'm prophesying that Trump will win. That way I'll get the result I, and the whole bloody world (except America's enemies) want.

Democracy's inherent weakness
Oh, America, what are you doing?

Enough people are swallowing the lies. I was hearing this morning that Cuban emigree voters in Florida have voted for Trump in huge numbers because they've been told the Democrats are communists, and they've run away from a country which (in name, anyway) is communist.

Democracy's inherent weakness is that large numbers of voters, with the sort of critical thinking skills that gets them to buy into QAnon etc in droves, have the same sway and power as people with greater critical thinking skills. To be successful, you don't have to come up with the better candidate or policies - you just have to come up with the better lies.


Could there be any greater conceit, than for someone to believe that the universe has to be simple enough for them to be able to understand it ?

ITS ALL OVER...in another Month
OK, so I voted for Biden in order to appease my family. I really never liked the idea of Kampala Harris, whom I regarded as Hillary 2.0. She represented that hippie idealism and humanist bliss--, Green New Deal at any cost, love the sins and the sinners, and Satan? Does Not Exist! Mentality of the far left. Logically, I believed what the media told me.

When I saw how close the race actually was, I realized that the Christian Prophets were right all along.

Do I really need to point out that you're just deciding what to believe minute by minute? And that the prophets, in your view, can be right whatever happens?

It is also looking likely that the Republicans will remain in control of the Senate.

Not at all. I have always believed in God and the wayu I called it originally, the prophets appeared to be wrong. According to the media, Biden and the Democrats were predicted to decisively win this thing. And it didn't happen. Trump is positioned now in that he actually might win, which will set off the largest round of protests in History...you all will claim he cheated. In my belief, it ios the liberal side that is more evil than the conservative side...though evil and rebellion exists within all humans.

And that the prophets, in your view, can be right whatever happens?
If Biden actually emerges as the winner in a week or a month, I will handily admit that the prophets were wrong. Reality is what it is.
