Belong to a coffee club. Every month I pay for two bags of coffee and prior to COVID I'd get the email on Friday, Saturday the tracking number would be emailed, and by Wednesday I'd be good. Here lately I'm lucky to get the coffee in a week.. My gripe I'm out of coffee.. It's not the roasters fault.. It's the post office.. They only pick up so much at a time...

But hey let's vote by mail what could go wrong.

COVID19 has become the government excuse to slack off everywhere. The U.S. Mint is way behind, it took 7 months to finally get my IRS refund and they got the damned return before COVID, and the post office not only is slower but my neighborhood no longer has a clue as to when the mail will be picked up. Some days its 9 AM and one evening it came at 6:30 PM and none of them were heavy mail days. Our mothers both registered for absentee and both got their ballots the day after the election. The problem was the mail left Opelika (7 miles away) went to Montgomery where it stayed for days, and then came after the election. Trust the post office with mail in voting? Only a foreign, drunken, desperate, fool would do so.

I heard rumors that the mail sorters delayed ballots going to what they perceived to be primarily middle class voting zip codes. Don't know if it was true but it is certainly possible. Mail in? Hell no!
Post offices in Montgomery are horrible period. I found that out living in Prattville.

Two out of three mailmen are Demoncraps. I know a few of them and they vote for the Demons.

RE: What grinds your gears?
So I live near Penn State. Before classes started they made all students sign a "contract" to do a list of things and if caught in violation they were to be suspended...

The first week one of the dorms had parties back to back. Nothing was done. Everything was in violation of said contract. Same with about 2-3 frat parties.

COVID cases have spiked. In the whole time when everything was "shut down" our county experienced maybe 200 cases total, which isn't bad. The last 2 weeks we've exceeded 300 cases.

What's grinding my gears is nothing is being done by the university, but the local schools here are closing again, which frustrates me because my kid thrives in that setting. The online stuff isn't enough and doesn't do anything... But yet my taxes are going to pay for a full school year whether he goes or not.

Loved Radner, but I would have picked Emily Latella, "Nevermind!"

That said every time the Dems make a proposal I feel more like Mr. Bill, "Oh! Nooooo!"

And Christmas Auto adds. How many people buy a Lexus or Mercedes for their loved ones as a Christmas gift. That is about as tone deaf as a Nancy Pelosi look in while she discusses gourmet ice cream as businesses are dropping like flies......

Just frustrated w/ everything right now. Liberalism affects everything & infects everything it touches & destroys it. What is still safe from it? Not much

The 73 million Americans who voted against it, provided they stay united and simply refuse to go along with it. After all, once you get past Big Tech and Big Pharma they still pay the most taxes. Liberalism only succeeds when most fail. Only the miserable follow it! Our jobs are simple. We must put an end to voter fraud.

In the past the nation has always turned away from liberalism once enough Americans grow tired of suffering. Having fair elections are all that stand in our way and therefore they must be our highest priority and in that we must stand our ground most firmly. The poor and minorities hate suffering as well. The liberal alliance never lasts without fraud and intimidation.

Bro, it’s not “liberalism”. Those people have been dead and gone since 30-40-240 yrs ago?

It’s gotten so weird that in some circles I’d consider myself a “Lib”.

Just don’t ever give up the fight

He hands Stink a lit stick of dynamite and says, "Man are you going to keep bitchin or are you going to fish?"

PS: Golf solves nothing. It merely directs the frustration inward on a pretty day.

Dude, I am a boomer. It wasn't all of us. Just those azzholes who spent the whole Viet Nam War in college so their privileged butts never got shot at. Then to relieve their frigging guilt they claimed the war was wrong and persecuted those who fought. There isn't enough collective piss to soak their asses in but because they had to stay in college for about 10 years they got Masters Degrees and then PHD's and then started teaching in said universities spreading the same old guilt ridden narcissistic BS to today's kids as their sorry legacy before mercifully they can assume room temperature! But make no mistake, if you people feel you are alone in this try being the conservatives that grew up with these Disneyland Loons who thought their lives were damned fairy tales only to have half of them wind up living a fairy tail life! There were a lot of fathers in the late 40's and 50's that should have let their kids play in the damn street.
