Speaking of...where is Joe? Bernie out here doing livestream fireside chats and round-table discussions.
Impressive and insightful overview, stickdog. People just don't get that there's a whole big machine working against them, right behind the curtain.

Sanders has to challenge this all the way. The "Nice to Joe" season must end here. The Sanders campaign cannot be tainted in this through some weak halfway stance. It is clear-cut.
The Wisconsin election can be postponed. It can be turned into a mail-in vote that will be much more fair and authentic by comparison.
An in-person election on Tuesday is irreconcilable with the anti-contagion measures we are all called upon to follow. The Biden campaign is urging voters to disregard the medical experts it claims to respect.
By their own sights, what the Biden campaign advocates is to knowingly increase a death toll. Is there a word for that?

It looks like this is considered essential in NY, AND PRETTY EXTENSIVE. Our Governor, Steve Bullock, just issued a Shelter in place starting tomorrow night at midnight until April 10th, here.

The 'New York State on PAUSE' Executive Order looks, AUTHORITATIVE, and that's what the in fear people want is an AUTHORITATIVE, Adult in charge. I can see all kinds of scenario’s and or plots or (get this...) pre-made plans already laying around, as Naomi Klein talks about in 'Disaster Capitalism'... As we jockey on into the summer before election. A sustained, stressed out anxiety driven, freaked out populace will be whipped into near desperation for a saviour by then and ready to submit to ANYONE who will look/sound smart and paternal.
Anybody else get my drift?

Three tubs of ballots discovered in mail processing center after polls closed in Wisconsin
Patrick Marley, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel 2 days ago
MADISON - Three tubs of ballots for Oshkosh and Appleton have been discovered at a mail processing center in Milwaukee, according to the Wisconsin Elections Commission and a state senator.
The discovery emerges as would-be voters across the state express a host of frustrations about absentee ballots they tried to avoid going to the polls amid the coronavirus pandemic. Many have said ballots they requested long ago did not arrive by Tuesday, the deadline for getting their ballots postmarked.
"I learned today that the (state Elections Commission) received a call from a postal service worker informing them 3 large tubs of absentee ballots from Oshkosh and Appleton, were just located," Republican Sen. Dan Feyen of Fond du Lac said on Twitter.
Meagan Wolfe, the administrator of the Elections Commission, said she is looking into the situation. She said she has not determined whether the ballots had been on their way to voters or already filled out and on their way back to clerks.
"We don’t have answers on that at this point," Wolfe said during an online media briefing.
Feyen wants the commission to go to court to give the voters a chance to have the ballots counted, according to his office.
Getting such a ruling will be exceedingly difficult because the U.S. Supreme Court in a 5-4 decision Monday ruled absentee ballots must be in the hands of clerks by election day or postmarked by then to be counted.
Republicans sought that decision by the Supreme Court and Feyen this week called it correct. But he also said he believed the situation in his area was unique and those voters should be given accommodations that others aren't getting.
At issue is voters who didn't receive absentee ballots through no fault of their own. Many have registered such complaints, not just those in Appleton and Oshkosh.
Voters who did not receive their absentee ballots had the option of voting in person Tuesday — an act some voters were reluctant to take because of the global pandemic.
No details have been made available about how many voters who didn't get absentee ballots ended up voting in person instead.
