I think itís really important to let the process play out as it is designed to do.

Finish counting the last official ballot and let the chips fall where they may.

Codeine is weight determined so I was never a fan of tylenol 3 or percocet, darvon, etc as you either get too much acetaminophen or not enough codeine/oxycodone.

As for votes I am going off of statistics and the overwhelming amount of irregularities.

A great corollary is how Twitter has made posts or accounts blocked/invisible, etc and then said "Oops it was a mistake or error" yet not one time has it been done in post/account critical of the Conservative party or candidate. The old adage is true....

Once is happenstance. Twice is coincidence, but the third time is enemy action.

In this case (election counting) it's approximately 20-30 times of action benefiting only one candidate and as I said even the gains fall so far out of statistical probability that for it to happen you would have to be a 40 y/o virgin woman stuck by lightning while being bitten by a shark.

As for Miami it's not surprising at the gains he got from black and hispanic voters mainly in that area due to calle ocho's background of running away from policies back in Cuba, Venezuela, etc that Biden has pushed that are similar or that those immigrants believe will lead to them and coupled with lowest unemployment rates for those groups for more than 50 years doesn't seem very suspicious especially since gains of similar percentages in the same ethnic backgrounds have shown nationwide.
I don't take meds typically. Very rarely. Once every 6 months or so (including acetaminophen/motrin/ibuprofen/etc). Taken a couple of Tylenol 3 though over the last week due to back going out. I think I reinjured it (had microdiskectomy 3 years ago) but don't want to go get an MRI yet. Will give it some time to heal and see what it does. Getting older, and being 6'8", are a recipe for pain.

As for the election, I'm not going to argue the results, as I don't see the point. Until there is actual evidence of fraud, Trump's whining is just that. He is not getting many mail-in votes because he instructed his voters specifically not to use that option. His lawsuits will have their due process and then, hopefully, that will be the end of it. IMO the choices of candidates this year (and for the last 2 Presidential elections) have been like trying to choose which turd in the bowl looks better.

I agree with you on Twitter's (and the other tech company's) handling of censoring only certain political (conservative) postings. I think they should ban ALL political accounts. Left, right, and anything in between if they don't want that talk on their platforms. Or, allow it all in the name of the first amendment.

I think Tweeter's official position is to censor posts that they feel contains false and misleading information. Unfortunately there's a lot of that going on from some conservative's accounts. Trump is undoubtedly the most famous of these accounts.

But I agree the censorship should apply to all those account that violates tweeter's official posting policy, regardless of party leaning and affilication.

As of today Biden is also leading in Georgia and Pennsylvania. The path to the white house is becoming very clear for him.

Biden wins, and now Trump refuses to leave.

No surprise there. But the reactions of top Republican officials is not helping matters.

Nor is the firing of top defense official and the subsequent installment of trump loyalist.

This is "classic dictator move".

Not that I am worried. But this is a tarnishment on our democracy.

I think you're fixating. Trump is entitled to the legal process, which has happened many times before this election. Nothing said, means anything, until January. Trump's said he wouldn't attend the inauguration which has also happened before. I believe Biden won and will wait to see that play out.

I am so happy I don't watch the evening news (national, still watch local/regional) anymore and listen to the lefties and the righties go at each other on different channels. IMHO the mainstream media has used up all its credibility and anyone watching it is doing themselves a disservice. The uproar over social media choosing the winner and shaping voters opinion is ironic when compared to main stream media doing the exact same thing.

Short of Al Gore's fiasco of a concession speech back in 2000, this is the first time in the modern day history when a losing us president refuses to concede defeat.

I'm not sure why you think this isn't out of the ordinary.

The longer this debacle drags on, the more damage it does to our democracy.

The contents from media and the social platforms are irrelvant to this guy's singular attempt to disregard the long standing tradition of us presidential election, and as a result, dismissal of our democratic process.

This is a dangerous precedent and one not to be taken lightly.

To wait another 2 months before allowing the incoming administration to start the transition process is both irresponsible and a gross misrepresnetation of the rights of the new administration.

Another 2 months of having the lame duck president doing nothing while the pandemic continue to rage on unchecked?

That is bad for this country and quite frankly completely avoidable.

The Electoral College decides who won and the date that they meet is December 14th states have until December 8th to complete court challenges, recounts, etc.

So as of this moment Biden has not won.

See Article 2 Section 1 of the Constitution plus the 12th and the 23rd amendments.

As for firing of Esper Trump's term ends on the 20th of January (unless reelected) and by the powers granted to the POTUS, he can exercise those powers until 11:59am on the 20th of January.

A classic dictator move is what Xi Jinping did and proclaimed himself "President for Life" I have dealt with actual dictators and Trump in no way meets any kind of honest criteria of a dictator.

You either trust our system or you don't, but whichever it is please apply it across the board.

What he said.

And no Maruzo, I don't think any dangerous precedent is being set. Is it embarrassing? Yeah, but so are SJW's, Trump's tweets, our education system, and so many other things that happen in our country.

The sky is not falling, no matter who gets elected, very little changes for the average citizen of this country. Democrat, Republican, doesn't matter. The sooner the American people realize that both parties are crooked, the sooner we can make the government fear the people again instead of major contributors to their never-ending campaigns.
