Old thread was getting kind of whiff, so here's a new one. Sorry for the lack of content, I am struggling to get the book and chess threads done, and it's slow going. So this will have to do for now.

24 Willowed like a... willow I guess, from the last thread:

There's a major sale on the Instant Pot on AMZN right now:
http://tinyurl.com/j5y8x7v

Kind of a rice cooker, steamer, pressure cooker combo. I got one for my sister and her new husband because they'd been using my old $7 rice cooker I gave her from the Pearl Harbor NEX and this one looks nice. I'll ask her for first-hand feedback from using it.


She says it cooks well. Just in case anyone's in the market for an electric cooking pot that does rice and is also a pressure cooker. Being able to steam things off in the corner of the counter and free up a burner on the stove (and have it turn itself off when it's done) is pretty handy.

45 Hi FenelonSpoke,

States have their own rules, usually triggered at a certain percentage of closeness in the vote totals.

Election officials or states pay for recounts.

Private recounts can be done also, don't know the machinery for that but the Miami Herald did one in Florida after the Bush-Gore set-to.

Bush still won.

57 OK, I'm pretty much good with this.

President-elect Donald Trump's sexually-charged jokes about his daughter, Ivanka, are nothing new. Among many other things, he told shock jock Howard Stern in 2004 he could call his then-23-year-old daughter a "piece of ass" and later said during an appearance on "The View" he would date Ivanka if she wasn't his daughter.

"If he wasn't my father, I would spray him with Mace," Ivanka Trump responded to her dad's comments at the time, according to a tweet from freelance journalist Sarah Kendzior.

62 One thing that always bothers me. You always see news reports if you live near a major city about bullets being fired into a house and sadly some young innocent is injured or killed. And every time I've seen those stories it's always a black family.

What I want to ask is "Do you have a teenage son or someone in their 20's who's a gang member living there"?

Because I'm guessing that 9 out of 10 times that is the cause of the gun fire at the house. But that question is never brought up by the news people.

73 "someone" (on the internet, so must be true) said the deadline for PA was Monday, and it involved several steps that could not be accomplished by then.

Clearly something so huge, Dems would pull out all stops, pull in every favor from every crooked pollster, to change results. But MI and WI alone would not change results anyway. Still, sine Stein said they found no indication of fraud, I don't see how they could do an official count without better reason than having the money.

But I guess if a private count (they have access to the ballots?) found miscounts, that would be evidence. Hopefully they just go away, or if they want accurate elections, fight for voter ID and verifiable tamper proof systems (which Dems seem to always oppose)

174 How do recounts work anyway? If you raise enough money to ask for a recount it actually happens even though you don't have any evidence to consider the votes in question? That's bogus.

Posted by: FenelonSpoke at November 25, 2016 01:46 PM (tOcW/)


Recounts are handled by the same people and procedures that did the original counting. The expenses are paid by the appealing party, unless the vote is so close that a recount is mandated by state law. Which these are not.

In general, recounts do not shift the vote by more than a few hundred in one direction or another. The recount in Ohio in 2004, for example, resulted in a whopping 300 extra votes for John Kerry, who still lost by 118,000 votes in that state.

The exception that makes everyone nervous is Florida in 2000. However, in that case the margin really was microscopic, and the Democrats attempted to steal the state by only recounting in a couple of Democrat strongholds where they could gin up extra votes with hanging chads, undervotes and overvotes.

These recounts, if they happen, will be statewide. And most of the counties in the states in question voted for Trump anyway. So they will probably look more like Ohio in 2004 than Florida in 2000.

Better release the kraken attorneys anyway, just in case. I'm sure Reince is on it already.

179 We did name our son after one of the disciples. We figured we were pretty safe there. Grandbaby #1 is named after a woman of great blessing in the Old Testament. Invariably, when I ask her what Bible story she wants me to read her, it's always the one that centers around her name. She really gets excited about being in the Bible

272 The Miami Herald did their own state-wide recount much later.

Both they and the NYT admitted Bush won. There was no question about it, just a driving need to keep counting until Gore won by radical leftists in charge of those counties.

The Florida Supreme Court lacked the authority to allow the continual, repeated recounts to begin with, they just did it because they didn't like the results. That's why their ruling was vacated by the Supreme Court of the United States not just overturned. As if it never existed.

IIRC, that's why he wanted to keep recounting and finally the SCOTUS said the votes had been counted to death and get over it.

I remember seeing a news show that talked about the recounts they did on Florida. The only recount that Gore was the one by the methodology he DID NOT want done. That's the only one. All other recount methods ended up with Bush winning.

Gore only wanted recounts in 3 counties most favorable to him. Bush argued no, you don't get to do that, if you want to recount Florida votes, fine, let's recount *all* the Florida votes. And there was no time to do that.

What the MSM never reported was how shabby Gore's legal case was. The only court that he "won" in was the very liberal Florida Supreme Court. Only that court kept the debacle going. All other courts told Gore to go pound sand.

I've watched a few videos by this guy and can't really stand him, this video he mentions that Stein had up a fundraiser for $2.5 million, and then once she got that, her fund went up to $4.5 million.

284 He wouldn't if the recount had counted.

Sorry, those were Buchanan votes that got double-punched. Palm Beach county left their historical voting records up for a few months after the election and you could see that the number of chads exactly matched the number of Buchanan votes that seemed to be missing. But the voting trends were unchanged for other offices.

293 Grammie, nearly every Catholic family I know, including mine, has a form of Mary or Marie, etc. in one of their daughters' first or middle names. Maybe it's just a thing around here or among Catholic homeschoolers.

294 221 210 157 There are some older names that are best retired. Percy, Elmer, God-anything, for guys. Stuff like Myrtle, Edna, Bertha, Gertrude, Phyllis probably best to avoid too.
Posted by: Christopher R Taylor at November 25, 2016 02:30 PM (39g3+)

There's a fun website that tracks the popularity of names through the decades, and they've noticed that there is a 100 year cycle. Names become wildly popular, then as their owners age, become old lady and old man names and then, after those people die off, the younger generation, dusts them off and starts giving their kids those names again.

I've seen it happen with "Sophie" and "Max" which were definitely considered old people names when I was a kid.

My name places me pretty squarely amongst the boomers - I know lots of middle aged Donnas, but nobody in their 20's with that name. Same goes for Mary Beths, Karens, Maureens, Gregs, and Jerrys.

It seems like every other millennial I meet is named Ryan or Brittany.

Yep, that's true of the Catholics I know too.

Fun fact: Mary was the top girls name for 400 years, up until 1946 or thereabouts, when it was knocked off its' perch by Linda.

There are a zillion baby boomer Lindas.
