    If I lost my legs fighting for my country Iíd probably remember it on a daily basis too. And Iíd probably also discount the opinion of people who didnít serve my country when they say STFU about your no longer existent legs.

    Although the story you link to doesn't say so, it would appear that it too is missing context. It would appear to be a complaint that the temporary/emergency measures put into place during covid lockdowns are no longer authorized. Considering the fact that in Georgia, as well as most other states, it's never been easier to vote considering generous early voting timelines and ease of absentee ballots, why is it necessary to maintain special considerations due to covid era lockdown and limited public gathering restrictions? All voting in Georgia ended a couple of hours ago so there's no reason to continue the Jim Crow 2 narrative any longer.
    That is not true everywhere. Check out Milwaukee, WI where polling locations have been reduced Ö.

    polling place consolidation reduced turnout by 8.6 percentage points, and
    Black turnout was especially depressed from these closures.

    I've been meaning to thank you JP for always letting me know what I think about one thing or another. I find it to be such a time saver.

    Kinda like how you pulled some sort of justification for Trudy Valentineís Senate campaign from Democratic Governor Mel Carnahanís term in office.

    Carnahan has been dead for 30 years.

    and speaking of Trudy ValentineĎs campaign, she lost. Everything I knew about Trudy, which granted wasnít much, did not disturb me. But the better candidate won for Missouri. Iím hoping he will shake loose his Donald J Trump shackles and move on from that.

    I remember thinking a few years ago when Cori Bush upset the long term candidate, another black Democrat of course in my city congressional district, that she couldnít be too bad, she had to be better than what we got rid of. But I was so so wrong.

    But who who is responsible for reducing the number of polling places frugal-one? You have mentioned this over and over, but are you looking at who did it?

    https://www.jsonline.com/story/news/...on/5127577002/


    From the above article I conclude:


    1.Running elections in 2020 was a shit show in Milwaukee as in every other place due to coronavirus and voting by mail was encoraged.

    2. Getting poll workers was a REAL concern then. I know in my household, DH who has been an election judge for 15 years, stepped out of working all elections. Locally here, younger people who were far less vulnerable to the coronavirus did not step forward to fill the shoes of traditional oldster election workers.

    3. In Milwaukee, the number and placement of polling places is determined by the Milwaukee Election .commission. I’m sure your Democratic Party leader, Kimmy Zapata ( The girl who committed voter fraud to demonstrate voter fraud) was in on that decision as #2 in command. Another poor decision on the part of Kim Zapata?

    4. The Milwaukee election commission is made up of more Democrats than Republicans according to today’s information.

    Since your charge seems to be the Milwaukee Election Commission didn’t want Black people to vote, why did the Democrats not want Black people to vote? That seems counterintuitive in a large blue city.

    Okay---Carnahan's plane went down in year 2000. Maybe I'll hike to the crash site, and explore the wreckage, sometime. Hope that helps you kids. Tell you what---30 years ago, I happened upon a rally for some gal from SL at SMS, who was running for u. s. congerss, and they had ol' Peggy Sue herself giving a rousing speech on behalf of the candy-date! But, the candy-date lost, and then died in Fla. a few years ago But yeah----Peggy Sue did give a fiery oration. Yup. Thank Mee.

    ah, 20 years then, but the info jp mentioned coild have been 30 years old since Democrat Mel Carnahan was governor in 1993. That is 30 years ago. He got the biggest check I have ever written to a politician, $1,000 back in the days when I was not disbursing $1,000 checks to politicians or charitable organizations, but there was a specific reason for that big check to Mel.

    Too bad he died. I had a fondness for all of the Carnahans. His lesser son Russ was the rather weak Congressman next door for a while, I often saw Russ my neighborhood yet I have never seen, not once, our actual congressman. His cracker jack dynamite daughter, Robin Carnahan, was Missouri secretary of State.

    While I think it is generally wise to not have family dynasties in politics, I liked the Carnahans.

    To set the record straight I do not live in Milwaukee. My point was to let Alan know his assumption was not correct.

    The reason this happened is because republicans have all the power (except governor) and have been gerrymandering. I don’t believe the election commission sets boundaries.

    What assumption might that be?
