So... Who will fill the vacuum when Limbaugh "leaves"? Hannity? Ingraham? Lil Bow Tie Boy?

I'll bet there's all kinds of elbowing for position already.

Who is your likely suspect?

Kane County Early Voting Was A Breeze.

20 minutes from leaving car, to re-entering car.

Great social distancing, and a smooth operation.

I didn't expect anything different. They run a smooth and honest election here.

I saw this posted elsewhere, and felt it was important to share.

This explains a lot. It's rather pathetic, actually, and dripping with irony.

The question was asked why people continue supporting Trump no matter what he does. This was a lady named Bev’s answer:

“You all don't get it. I live in Trump country, in the Ozarks in southern Missouri, one of the last places where the KKK still has a relatively strong established presence. They don't give a shit what he does. He's just something to rally around and hate liberals, that's it, period. He absolutely realizes that and plays it up. They love it. He knows they love it. The fact that people act like it's anything other than that proves to them that liberals are idiots, all the more reason for high fives all around.

If you keep getting caught up in "why do they not realize this problem" and "how can they still back Trump after this scandal," then you do not understand what the underlying motivating factor of his support is. It's fuck liberals, that's pretty much it.

Have you noticed he can do pretty much anything imaginable, and they'll explain some way that rationalizes it that makes zero logical sense? Because they're not even keeping track of any coherent narrative, it's irrelevant. Fuck liberals is the only relevant thing. Trust me; I know firsthand what I'm talking about. That's why they just laugh at it all because you all don't even realize they truly don't give a fuck about whatever the conversation is about. It's just a side mission story that doesn't matter anyway. That's all just trivial details - the economy, health care, whatever. Fuck liberals.

Look at the issue with not wearing the masks. I can tell you what that's about. It's about exposing fear. They're playing chicken with nature, and whoever flinches just moved down their internal pecking order, one step closer to being a liberal.

You got to understand the one core value that they hold above all others is hatred for what they consider weakness because that's what they believe strength is, hatred of weakness. And I mean passionate, sadistic hatred. And I'm not exaggerating. Believe me. Sadistic, passionate hatred, and that's what proves they're strong, their passionate hatred for weakness. Sometimes they will lump vulnerability in with weakness. They do that because people tend to start humbling themselves when they're in some compromising or overwhelming circumstance, and to them, that's an obvious sign of weakness.

Kindness=weakness. Honesty=weakness. Compromise=weakness. They consider their very existence to be superior in every way to anyone who doesn't hate weakness as much as they do. They consider liberals to be weak people that are inferior, almost a different species, and the fact that liberals are so weak is why they have to unite in large numbers, which they find disgusting, but it's that disgust that is a true expression of their natural superiority.

Go ahead and try to have a logical, rational conversation with them. Just keep in mind what I said here and be forewarned.”

After Trump loses, what can Congress or courts do to hamstring Trump until Jan. 2021?

Does anyone know what can be done to put the hammer down on the Trump administration for a couple of months?

Right wingers/Trump chumps in music.

Do any fellow musicians suffer a lot of right wingers in general, and Trump chumps in particular,
in your local music scenes?

I'm becoming more shocked every day at how many righties/trumpers there are "coming out", so to speak, in my circles

Musicians are supposed to be cool. They are supposed to be more in tune with the World. They are supposed to be more thoughtful and, dare I say, caring for those around them. All kinds of players in my universe are showing me that they're nothing but "Ted Nugents".
