I recall saying to a Bernie supporter voter suppression and close elections are the GOP’s preferred strategy for winning. In view of that this is interesting information:
The New York Times has a county-by-county listing of election results. As of November 11, the Times was giving Trump a 92 percent chance of winning Michigan; the results currently list Trump as receiving 47.6% of the vote and Clinton 47.3%.
Did Donald Trump really win Michigan’s 16 electoral votes?
The president-elect’s victory in the rust-belt state was heralded as a fundamental redrawing of the political map. That’s because Michigan, along with Pennsylvania and Wisconsin, had not gone red in a presidential election since the 1980s. Until Tuesday, that is, according to the prevailing narrative.
However, you may have noticed that many news organizations still considered Michigan up for grabs in their electoral college maps of the presidential election as of November 11. That’s three days after the election. In other words, they hadn’t officially added it to Trump’s column yet.
Thus, the answer to the question of whether Trump really won Michigan is:
He’s ahead now.
A spokesman for the Secretary of State’s office in Michigan told Heavy that office has “no reason to believe” there are “significant” numbers of…
Some years we peel
open like a fruit.
This year an orange.
We devour the nectar
or, feeling badly for the
naked fruit, we handle
it with care.
Other years are fruitless.
We search through our
refrigerators until we find
a carton of large white.
Cracking the years open
like an egg, until the yolk
break, running through our
fingers and onto time.

Three Things About Myself:
I’m a Scorpio.
I love Cats
I have always lived close to the Ocean.
Questions asked of me:
1. Would you jump in front of a bus for a complete stranger?
Yes, probably. Definitely if the stranger was a child.
2. If a neighbor was a hoarder and lived in unsafe and unhealthy conditions, would you ignore it or take action? If you did, what would it be?
One of my neighbors is a hoarder. The result was degradation of the entire building. I confronted her with it and eventually she sought professional help. But not until we went through a lot of drama.
3. If you could go back in time and change one day in your life, which day would it be and why?
I would change the day of my childhood that caused me to develop Dissociative Identity Disorder.
4. What is your favorite word?
ergonomic. It just feels right.
5. The weird question: If you knew you could get away with it, would you rob a bank?
