    Yeah Idk how anyone even his supporters could have just seen his announcement and think he wasn't either mentally ill or a big sore loser/crybaby.

    95% is the standard. With the sheer number of votes in Georgia they could hit 95% without issue. However, as that article states, this seems more like a test run with small hundreds as opposed to large hundreds/a thousand.

    What? Nah.

    Even at those numbers, that means that the vote was split 75/25%.

    None of this is excusing anything, but the wealthy class kicking in the teeth of the majority of the population is not a modern phenomena.
    Not quite 1000s in the US. Largest strike death count was possibly a bit over 100. There were 1000s of participants in that strike (battle of blair mountain), but not thousands of deaths. Ludlow was another infamous strike where mine owners killed workers, but it was a relatively small affair (still spooky to visit the massacre site though).

    Also, doesn't this gives ground for arresting him for inciting and like 30 more charges? He is literally committing treason with a speech like this.
    Not treason. Not giving aid and comfort to an enemy. If an overzealous prosecutor wanted to levy a treason charge, it'd be over bounty-gate and his push for russia to be put back in the g-7, not political speech.

    70%-30% of 10k=4k votes. So 85%.

    Edit: I was using the numbers in the post, not the actual numbers, for clarification.

    Depends enormously on the industry. I work in power generation, and our safety standards are 1 major failure in 1 million cycles for standard operations. Depending on the application, it can be more or less then that, depending on the cycle time. If we are dealing with casing or exhaust temperatures, you just need to be broadly in the ballpark, if you are dealing with rotor blade clearance, you need things pretty much with microns, and failure rates absurdly near zero (Since nobody likes supersonic chunks of steel ripping buildings apart).

    Well the entire far left has been infiltrated by conservative trolls furthering division.

    Face it. The Republicans have out maneuvered us every where.

    Most Reps are dumb poor people. The elite that run the party aren't and have taken full advantage.

    I will bet you $100 that no matter how hard progressives yell at Biden to support progressive policies he will not. Moderate Democrats are already yelling at party leaders that they need to push the left out of the party because progressives somehow caused moderate Democrats to lose their elections, not moderate Democrats themselves, even though progressive Democrats won their elections.

    Don’t say socialism ever again.
    Need to get back to basics.
    (Is yelling.)
    Here's a long list of all the moderate Democrats who lost who didn't support Medicare for All or defunding the police:

    https://twitter.com/aidan_smx/status...65958832889856

    All I'm asking for is for Democrats to just grow a crumb of self awareness and responsibility and blame themselves when they lose their own elections, not progressives. If Joe Biden can be called a socialist and it sticks, literally any Democrat can be called a socialist and have it stick, it literally doesn't matter. Trying to kick the left out of the party because you think they're making you lose elections will not fix this.

    I mean it is pretty damn good odds for a sports analyst. What rate is good totally depends on the context. In this context 90% doesn't seem great.

    I'll almost guarantee there are provisions for small businesses to get around it. Small businesses like the lil mom and pop stores. And Disney.

    I have to say, the timing of those vote tally drops was priceless.

    The only 2 Democratic candidates that won in Florida were the only 2 Democratic candidates that supported the proposition to raise the minimum wage to $15, the rest rejected it at the behest of corporate donors and lost.

    Judge orders further sweeps of Postal Service facilities for undelivered ballots

    A federal judge ordered the Postal Service on Thursday to continue its sweep of mail facilities to check for undelivered ballots in states that have extended vote delivery deadlines, such as North Carolina and Pennsylvania.

    U.S. District Judge Emmet Sullivan of Washington, D.C., ordered the sweeps to continue until the end of the day Friday to ensure that all the mailed ballots are counted. The order, the result of a lawsuit brought by voter advocacy groups, is intended to mitigate concerns that a number of ballots in the Postal Service's care potentially were not delivered.

    Concern was raised Wednesday about ballots that were scanned into the Postal Service system but did not get outgoing scans. The agency said that in an attempt to deliver the ballots more quickly, it bypassed the outgoing delivery scan in some cases.

    Mail employees would often pull the ballots from being processed so they could deliver them directly to boards of elections.

    Still possible - looks like both Georgia seats are going to runoffs.

    Honestly there's a tremendous mood shift since he just spoke. I think people see that he's defeated. He had no energy, no swagger, no anger. He only vaguely muttered about stolen votes and protecting the integrity, etc., but there was no conviction there.
