That’s you, too, if you buy into it.

Just out — in Arizona, SIGNATURES DON’T MATCH. Electoral corruption – Call for a new Election? We must protect our Democracy!
2:33 PM – 9 Nov 2018
One of the responses:
Signatures not matching does not equal corruption or fraud. Everyone’s signature varies somewhat, and if one signature is on paper and the other is on a device, there can be a lot of variance, especially if the person doesn’t sign on devices often.
Read the sequence. This is all about counting the votes that have been cast in this election. For those of you who have difficulty with reading comprehension and facts (The Faux News Channel, for instance), read this slowly and out loud, that might help you understand it.
1. When voter turnout is higher than expected it takes longer to count the votes because of the volume of ballots which have to be processed.
2. States which have voting by mail have a very high volume. It takes a longer time to count and certify those results due to the very high volume.
3. News media does not count the votes, local election authorities do.
4. Media usually reports on the votes that have been counted, as long as their attention holds. They rarely report on the certified results.
5. Election races are “called” by the media when they believe that the outcome will not be changed by the ballots remaining which have yet to be counted. This is not a certified election result. It’s a bauble for people with short attention spans.
6. Elections are certified by election authorities when all of the votes have been counted.
7. Sometimes, when elections are really close, the media will not “call” the election until it has been certified. Sometimes media makes a mistake and “calls” the election anyway because math is hard for some people.
8. If, at any point, the number of ballots which have not been counted is greater than the reported margin between two candidates, then any media “call” of the race is worthless. That’s how math works.
Thus endeth the lesson.
There were a number of “Our Lives on the Line” rallies supporting Medicaid, Medicare and the ACA across the country today. The rally in Tucson started at 10:00 a.m., in the July morning heat, with over thirty individuals attending.
OFA, Planned Parenthood, and LUCHA were among the sponsoring organizations.
There are thousands of health care stories:
Much like the Indivisible events in Kansas and Missouri, many attending these rallies tell their health care stories.

A thirty second ad from Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign:
Gabby Giffords: I’m fed up. We have a gun violence problem. So, I’m voting for Hillary Clinton. She’s tough. She will stand up to the gun lobby. She will fight to make our families safer. It matters.
Hillary Clinton: I’m Hillary Clinton and I approve this message.
A lot of people do.
Arizona Governor Doug Ducey (r) is a popular guy. Facing a main thoroughfare:
“Support public education. My child is an honor student, my governor is a lunatic.” – On Broadway, west of Columbus, in Tucson, Arizona.
….Monday night, I talked to both of the neighbors across Broadway who have the most direct view of the wall. Neither of them wanted their full names used because they don’t want to get involved in neighborhood disputes. And neither of them like it.
One said he finds it obnoxious that he has to see the wall every time he sits down for dinner and looks out the window. The other told me she simply didn’t like seeing such a negative message day after day….
What do you bet the second neighbor watches the Faux News Channel all the time?
Signs we’ll be seeing for the next ten years (May 11, 2015)
Early morning in the foothills of the Santa Catalina Mountains, Coronado National Forest, Southern Arizona.
On a recent trip to Southern Arizona I had a conversation about immigration with a long time friend of Hispanic descent. Toward the end of our conversation on the subject she related that recently, “People have told me, ‘Go back to Mexico’. I was born here. I was raised here. I went to school here. I’ve lived here my entire life…”
Welcome to post-racial America.
“….the greatest integrative force in this country has been our public education system. The greatest integrative value developing part of this country has been our education system. And we need to strengthen that. As a new demography comes in there has to be a touchstone, an American touchstone that translates and brings to that accommodation who we are as a nation, what our values are, and what it means to be an American. I learned that in school, I learned it from my family. And we cannot rob the next two or three generations of the opportunity in our school system to become fully empowered and American like the rest of us. [applause]….”

“… I go, you know, Pops, why with the union, you know? And I’m speaking more for myself. Why do I have to come? But he took it as a question directed at him, like I do at the union. And I think that’s been kind of a guiding principle since he said that. He said to me, you know…on the job they can work me like a dog. But with the union they have to treat me like a man. [applause, cheers]… “
Former U.S. Representative from Arizona Gabrielle Giffords (D) and her husband, former astronaut Mark Kelly, have unveiled a new political action committee today:
…Two years ago, a mentally ill young man shot me in the head, killed six of my constituents, and wounded 12 others. Since that terrible day, America has seen 11 more mass shootings – but no response from Congress to prevent gun violence. After the massacre of 20 children and six of their teachers at Sandy Hook Elementary though, it’s clear: This time must be different.
Americans for Responsible Solutions will encourage elected officials to stand up for solutions to prevent gun violence and protect responsible gun ownership by communicating directly with the constituents that elect them.
Join us today, and tell your elected leaders that Americans are demanding responsible solutions to reduce gun violence…
