I voted more than a week ago. Unfortunately, it was by machine, so no writing in Harambe, with D. Snutz as VP...

Did I ever tell y'all about that boating accident I had not too long ago? Yup. Lost almost all of my guns, except for a bolt action deer rifle and the .22 revolver my grandfather left me. Lost all my standard size magazines that the uninformed think are high capacity. Every single one of them.

I guess that means I won't have to pay $200 for a tax stamp for each magazine that holds more than 10 rounds, since Joe wants those added to the National Firearms Act list of restricted items... Plus all the semiautos that folks swear with spray bullets if you hold down the trigger, just like a fully automatic.

And folks still swear that nobody's coming for our guns, and that we can rely on the police for protection... when they take more than half an hour to respond. Hell, my dad was in a minor collision less than half a mile from a police station, and it took more than an hour for anyone to show up. This was near a bad part of Little Rock.

Oh. Wait. They're trying to defund the police entirely, while doing nothing about the people who are going around rioting and literally calling for every police precinct and department to be burned and all the cops killed.

Anybody heard of Benford’s Law? A useful statistical tool for investigating tax cheats and other issues.

Also, a 2016 article from the BBC that may be relevant.

I tried to share the article from the second link, but apparently a lot of people have reported it for being abusive... and I saw nothing of the sort when I read it, so I engaged in a little trickery to fool Facebook into letting me post the URL (had to break it up, so Facebook couldn't recognize it), and put a description in my post as to why I did that.

This Computer Fraud Switched Thousands of Votes From Trump to Joe Biden


I started looking for some YouTube videos related to this, but I don't have time to watch all that...

Apparently, officials lied to Trump about how many troops we had in Syria, too. But votes wouldn't fix that issue at all, sadly.

Too bad D. Snutz wasn't running again... (Anyone remember that prank from 2016?)

Unfortunately, at this point, I'd say there is enough evidence to think that some people abused that "good faith", and things need to be looked into. If it turns out there was no fraud, then fine, congrats, Mr. Biden. But if it does turn out there was fraud, then President Trump needs to address the issue.


My personal fear is that there was indeed fraud committed, but it will be too difficult to prove, thereby handing the victory to the cheating side, for lack of sufficient proof. That would be unfortunate.
