Biden winning is not a "Socialist revolution".
I got a good laugh at the socialist revolution line. I wish.
I think the US needs fundamental change such as an FDR type presidency but there is zero chance of that happening unfortunately.

Commander in Chief - Possibly the best Lincoln Project ad yet, and its a high bar. It could be arguable that it is a lot of stuff concentrated together, but 20,000 lies is a lot of garbage to struggle against. The Lincoln Project has been playing a blinder for Biden.
Thats a very good piece of work, Trump wont be happy with Demi Lavato when he hears those lyrics about him

Neither Joe Biden nor Kamala Harris could be considered socialist, by either the metrics of America let alone Europe. Career centrists both. Tacit support of BLM, ANTIFA or whatever sticks in one's ideological craw does not a socialist make - and frankly shows a laughable ignorance of both the individuals own political history, as to be ignored as anything but disingenuous at best. Support Trump, it's a free world, but don't invent nonsense to fit ones support. Biden the Socialist. Bit adolescent.

While he stokes the Hidin'Biden meme, we all know that's classic Trump PROJECTION! So we really need to ask "What's Trump Hidin' Now?"

Well, here's one for the League Table of things The Don wants us to not be talking about too much. I can't say where it sits in the League Table, but you can bet your pampooties its in there somewhere...

The Great State of Texas has 254 counties. That's a lot you might say. Well, the Good Ole Boys at Governor and A.G. Level, staunch Patriotic Republicans each no doubt, would have the entire population of the State forced to put their drop-off ballots IN A SINGLE DROP OFF BOX PER COUNTY.. So, heres the thing:

HARRIS County gets ONE (1) box
and
LOVING County gets ONE (1) box.

All fair you might say... But:

HARRIS has a population of 4,713,325 folks

LOVING has 169!

Now THAT'S worth hidin' !!

And they're trying to limit each county to just one drop-off point.... With some success so far in the Courts, it has to be said....

This is a 70 quid or so item, not a multi thousand quid item that's tracked to sale.

The story is insane gibberish that could easily actually have been something planted to make Guiliani look like a fool.
This is ridiculous. Warranty does not start from manufacture date. It starts from the moment of sale if you have a receipt and you can get extra warranty benefits or an extension if you register it with the manufacturer. This is what seems to have happened here since the manufacturer usually doesn't know when the warranty started, unless the purchaser then registers it. Plenty of consumer electronics like this come with a warranty card advising you to register it online. All my recent external drives have.

Do you seriously think you could go in and buy a component and find out there's only two weeks left of the warranty because it's been on the shelf a while?

Polling , Voting patterns , court cases relating to the election , that sort of thing.

General discussions should be in the other threads.

3 days? PA counts must be eeeasy! Imagine if they had to do a PR system count like in Ireland.

People vote.. Polls close.. Votes then get counted.. The counts takes as long as they take. What's so hard for ppl to understand?

Socialist and Communist are both the same in my neck of the woods. Americans as a whole do not differentiate. They just listen to the right wing stations that spout Trumpism and are not capable of disseminating it. Unbiased news? Forget it. No excitement here.
As most Americans don't own a passport, they get their "feel" for a country from Limbaugh, Hannity, Beck and co. And, as Americans are perhaps the most paranoid people on earth, these populists lead a great many sheeple. Most don't realise that Antifa is a corruption of Anti Fascist. So, they are easily swayed because of their patriotism xenophobia!

5 years ago I would have said someone proposing armed rebellion in the United states if an election did not go their way would be committed for mental health issues. Now I just don't know.
