About Me

Retired from the State of California. Loving every bit of life!

This is what we are up against

I just had lunch with a former co-worker. We hadn't seen each other for 5 years and he just retired. (I've been retired for 5 years now.)

In our discussion, he mentioned that the Dems want to take away Medicare and Social Security. When I asked him where he got this info, he said Carl Levin. Nothing got resolved in our discussion, but you can see why so many are getting away from the Democrats if they believe these lies.

We need to be better at messaging if this is what is being said out there. I'm betting that there are many out there who think the same as he does.

EDIT: NOT Carl Levin but Mark Levin.

Immigration is SO bad in Florida...

that DeSatan had to go to Texas to find 50 to send up north.

When Right-wingers say Freedom and Liberty, I think they mean Privilege.

I've determined this from my friend who was constantly spouting freedom until I mentioned the abortion rights. He just didn't care for those.
He only thought of those "freedoms" that he wanted.

Masks no longer required in California

And the stores say , Fully vaxed=no mask, non vaxed=mask required.

But at the stores this morning, about 90% were wearing masks and we have a high vaxed rate.

This is in Sacramento.

Email about California Recall Election

Breaking 5 million ballots cast

The first big wave has abated slightly, but not before we break the 5-million barrier. What will be interesting is to see how these numbers shift after this weekend when many counties are opening in-person voting opportunities. This second avenue of returns may alter the composition of the electorate a bit.

One thing we always look at in these elections is how much the early and late voting patterns are consistent with prior voting behavior. Voting, of course, is very habitual. And we see patterns set in with some voters always voting early by mail, some wanting to walk their ballot in and drop it off, and a decreasing number old-schooling it by voting-person on Election Day using a machine.
Looking at the data, we are at 23% turnout, but we are 55% among voters who usually vote early, and 50% turnout among voters who cast their ballots early in the 2020 General.

Democrats who have historically voted early are at 59% turnout, and even those who usually vote late are at 35% turnout, signaling this switch to more early voting for Democrats, as we saw in 2020.
