America is first. (Not you, DT!)
I'll be working at the polls for a town vote today (Tuesday), 3:30-8:00pm (through counting the vote), so will be there as it storms. Happily, Mah*Sweetie is going to work from home that time of day and will drive me over so the car can be in the garage while I work. :-) Given how I am feeling about elections at the moment, I wonder if this will be my last time volunteering. I'm scheduled for Town Meeting Day in March too, and as I'm in Vermont I expect I'll be there. But no more Presidential elections for me, unless something yuge changes before then.
Hey, it might! It might very well.AlanBlogger seems to have trashed one of my posts; the best link was to a column by Gary Younge, here. [Click] "Don’t blame it all on racism. During the financial crash Obama sided with the bankers, not people losing their homes – making Trump’s victory possible." Sounds like a plausible take. The Dems' nomination of a tool of Wall Street compounded the error, it seems to me. --Alan
Not that I particularly favor the Washington Post, but one of their columnists has made basically the same argument [Click] that Gary Younge did (linked above).--Alan
Final vote tally for California, including Bernie write-ins [Click]--Alan
Incredibly impressive, Alan! Maybe California can secede? It's larger, physically and economically, than a lot of countries.
Here are the Massachusetts Results. We were one of two states where Clinton won every county, the other being Hawaii.
Well, I'm home from working at the polls. Our town had a local vote on the Town Plan. The question was whether to limit what footprint new buildings can be to 30,000sq ft, instead of the current allowance of 60,000 sq ft. For reference: the new supermarket in town is 18,000 sq ft. My hope was that we would keep things in town small and not turn into some citified mess. As the townspeople voted it was good to see so many people I know and I got a good feeling that I cared about them all no matter how they were voting. At least they showed up! So how did it turn out? Of the 4098 voters in town, 23.8% voted. And guess what. The new Town Plan with smaller footprint allowance lost ... by 8 votes. =Heavy Sigh=
