Political signs

In my area, the most prominent Trump signs (6'x8' mini billboards) and Trump flags always seem to be on the dumpiest, most run-down looking houses.

About a week ago, the campaign signs started to come out in force at the main road (signs are prohibited under our HOA rules). I went to an appointment in the morning and noticed a few Trump signs, plus an equal amount of Dan Forest (GOP running for Governor). I was like "ugh" and fantasized about stealing the sign late at night. To be clear, I wouldn't because I don't think it is right to do so.

Came back from the appointment 90 minutes later, the sign was gone.

Since then, the Dan Forest signs have been removed. Nobody can keep an election sign up without them being stolen within the day. Thus, there's only down-ticket signs left standing.

How's the polling on the gubernatorial race in NC?

Expand full comment

Governor Cooper's first term has been objectively pretty good, so has not suffered the typical drop-off in ratings that incumbents typically have through their term. He's polling above 50%. His opponent - the current Lt. Gov - is in the mid 30s, is a pure MAGA guy, Christianity-first, mask hoax, opening schools, stopping immigrants, back-the-blue, 2A, and economy promises type of guy. The Lt. Governor was tied within the margin of error in February, but has since slipped to a double-digit gap due to his parroting MAGA stuff.

Senator Tom Tillis has also slipped since July, going from a tie to down 6.

Trump took this state by 4 in 2016. And Romney took it by 2 in 2012. However, this state is one of the few toss-ups. Biden and team are not very visible in the state as he's chosen to spend money on television ads. This compares to Trump/Pence, who have visited multiple times, have far more ads, and have a substantial team on the ground. This is odd because my are has the highest percentage of registered independents in the state.

Heh, in past life as a political operative, me and a volunteer with a van and a couple of ladders ripped off all of our opponent's signs on telephone poles down the whole length of Fruitvale Ave. and replaced them all with our candidate's the night before a rally down the Ave. - to add insult to injury, you could see that we did this because his signs were bigger, so the wood supports were sticking out on the sides.

We denied all knowledge of what happened.

Expand full comment

Yes, this. Every game with the exception of USC (I was at Memorial for that blowout loss, other than the game, the weather and day was perfect) was unbelievably frustrating. If Tedford had simply went with Levy we probably win two more regular season games.

Expand full comment

Ayoob completely stunk it up against OSU and Oregon, and both games were within a field goal by the end. We probably win with competent QB play. He was okay against UCLA, so that one was lost more on a defense/special teams collapse. That said, he could have clinched it with one more 4th quarter drive that never happened.

I tend to agree that it's a 9 win regular season with Levy at the helm.

Expand full comment

He was play against ucla with the exception of the 4th quarter and in the red zone. We settled for too many FGs in the red zone during that game and that allowed ucla to stay in the game.

I was at the 2005 UCLA/Cal game in LA, surrounded by ucla fans. It was tough. Highest of highs to lowest of lows. If Tedford has only played Levy we would have won that game walking away.

Lots of missed opportunities for Biden. He did okay, but there were so many opportunities to be more pointed in his attacks on the Trump and the Republican party more generally.

When Trump says he's nominating Barrett because he's president for four years, why not call out Senate Republicans' blocking of Garland because they put party before their constitutional duty in 2016?

On the topic of the pandemic, why not call out Trump's dismantling of the National Security Council's pandemic task force created under the Obama-Biden administration?

When Trump criticized Hunter Biden's drug problem, why not expand a bit to say that people across the country are suffering from addiction to opiates and other drugs and that they need to be given treatment rather than be demonized by people like Trump?

Expand full comment

Some folks on the Twitter were saying that Biden’s response came across as humane rather than political, which is probably sufficient.

Expand full comment

It is easy to Monday morning QB Biden but I thought he did a good job. I am sure he would have said most of those things if he could get two uninterrupted sentences in last night.

I also thought his comment about his son was very good and relatable for people dealing with all addictions.

Expand full comment

I mean... I was real-time QBing last night, I'm certain I would have done a lot better myself than Biden did, but yeah... ultimately he did all right

Expand full comment
author

Yeah, I was coming up with better answers in real time. A simple sentence or two to help better frame some of his points would have really improved his performance. Like I said, he did fine. But he could have done better with some simple, basic tweaks.

Expand full comment

Yeah and I was doing the same. From the comfort of my own home, without a screaming man child 10 feet away from me and without constant interruptions or the bright lights in my eyes.

Like Mike Tyson said, everyone has a plan until the get punched in the mouth.

Biden had a plan and knew Trump would interrupt but I am not sure any amount of preparation can truly prepare someone for what we just witnessed and the volume and consistency with which trump interrupted.

Expand full comment

I am 100% sure that Trump is dumb enough to think he "won", but he doesn't understand the shape of the race. He's losing, and his disgraceful performance probably alienated 80% of the diminishing of the undecideds - and nobody can "win" a shit-show like that: Advantage Biden.

Expand full comment

Yet “undecided” voters who watched the debate last night are still “undecided”. Which to me is just code that they are voting for trump.

Expand full comment

That's not what I've read:

"Undecided voters from battleground states around the country used decidedly different words to describe the night featuring the Republican and Democratic nominees on the same stage for the first time.

'Crackhead,' ‘arrogant,’ ‘un-American,’ ‘forceful,’ ‘puzzling,’ ‘eh,' and ‘unhinged’ were some of the words used to describe Trump's performance by a group of undecided voters in GOP pollster Frank Luntz's post-debate focus group Zoom session.

‘Professional,’ ‘showed restraint and compassion,’ ‘predictable,’ ‘politician,’ and ‘presidential’ were the descriptors used to describe Biden by the same participants in Luntz's group, which comprised of over a dozen undecided voters from Arizona, Nevada, Pennsylvania, Florida, Wisconsin, Iowa, Ohio, and North Carolina."

Seems like all the (reliable) post-debate polls show that Biden won. They also mostly match the polling of the current presidential race, which indicates that the debate changed nothing. But of course, if nothing changed, Biden won.

Everything he said indicates that he's just deep in the Fox News bubble and doesn't understand how to talk to anyone who isn't.

Expand full comment

On the last point, I'm pretty sure Biden did try to tie Hunter's drug issues to those that a lot of Americans are suffering through, but as with most things it got lost in Trump's fusillade of nonsense.

Expand full comment

I agree with this take.

Expand full comment

Biden seemed unprepared for what was to be expected on several occasions, though probably because as several other stumbles and mis-statements suggest, it might not be possible to adequately prepare Biden to perform in that kind of arena, where Trump is in his element.

Expand full comment

I think Biden prepared but trump was on a whole different level of chaos and crazy last night. How do you prepare to debate someone who will not let you answer a question or even let the moderator ask a question?

Last night proved that Pelosi was right to say Biden shouldn’t debate trump. I know he has to but she was right.

I didn't watch because I'm staying away from social media and news (social media fast broken only because TheScientist tagged me in the ice cream tweet).

Could anyone have said anything last night to change who I'm voting for? No. Would I have seen things that upset me? Yes.

Expand full comment

I decided in 2015 that there was nothing that could happen for me to vote for Orange Hitler, so I failed to see any point in watching the debate. I'll probably chip in another hundred or so to Biden's campaign, and once the ballot is mailed to me, I'll vote for Biden and democrats down the ballot (unless Alex Villanueva is running for LA County Sheriff this year) and drop it off on election day.

Expand full comment

I have basically the same plan, though I want to turn my ballot in early.

Expand full comment

I want to as well, but my wife wants to make sure our votes are counted and vote in-person. And I want to support my wife. I might fill out the ballot ahead of time and just drop off on Election Day.

Expand full comment

Why not go vote early? Don't drop off your absentee ballot on election day, those are the last ones counted. Turn it back in and vote by machine on election day.

Expand full comment

What a trash fire. I had no expectation that Trump would turn over a new leaf, but the amount of interrupting and conspiracy-mongering he did was even more than I expected.

I would criticize Biden or Wallace, but I don't know what you do about that. He's the President, he's going to talk. He wasn't perfect, but for the most part I think Biden stood up to it well. His most effective tactic was just turning to the camera and addressing the audience directly while Trump ranted on.

Expand full comment

I am in this line. Lots of criticism for Biden and Wallace for letting that happen but what do you do? Other than cutting trumps (both candidates) microphone, which trump and his campaign would never agree to or putting a shock collar on trump, which would be hilarious but he would never agree to, I don’t know what you do to stop that.

It’s basically analogies to the wildfires burning out of control in California. Biden and Wallace are two firefighters trying to contain a raging, anti truth, anti decency, wild fire.

Expand full comment

Man, that was disgusting. If I was Biden, I'd just cancel the the rest, what's the fucking point?

Expand full comment

It gives the evil ones a talking point to use against him. The next debate (town hall) will be much tougher for Orange Hitler to interrupt people.

Expand full comment

OOOOoooOOOoo

Forgot about that, yes that may be a mess too, but a much better format for Biden.

Expand full comment

Yeah he can’t cancel or else Trump will lie that Biden is afraid, weak, etc but this proves Pelosi was correct when she said Biden shouldn’t debate trump.

Expand full comment

At the very least, you don't cancel right away. You wait until the Debate Commission starts talking about rule changes (or more likely, the lack of rule changes) and then cancel.

It will be a mess, but it looks much worse when he interrupts regular people than when he interrupts a media member. And regular people are more likely to call out being interrupted (see the last two town halls).

Expand full comment

Yeah, I like some of their songs but never was a big fan.

Expand full comment

They originally got popular when I was in high school, when I originally just considered them one of many random bands who had hits during the era.

Since then I've come to realize they are pretty great songwriters, which is why they have endured where so many others have not.

Love Green Day. I want to go to one of their concerts (not the one they're doing with Fall out Boy and Weezer). American Idiot is one of my most favorite albums.

Expand full comment

I went to a memorable Green Day show that was played outside in the rain. At one point the microphones shorted out so you couldn't hear the vocals anymore. Once Billy Joe realized it was happening, he just started strumming his guitar to some of Green Day's bigger hits and motioned at the audience to sing along. They continued that way for a few numbers until the mics got fixed and the show continued as normal. I was impressed by his "the show must go on" attitude. My respect for the band went way up after that.

But yeah, they sound great live. Really tight and they involve the audience well.

This was at AT&T, right?

I saw them once play a free show in front of SF City Hall, that was pretty fun.

Also, they have been involved in a few Oakland businesses, I believe. There's 1-2-3-4 Go! Records, and Billie Joe is a partner in the Broken Guitars guitar shop, and I think Mike was invested in Rudy's Can't Fail Cafe

Lousy start to the postseason for the A's

https://www.athleticsnation.com/2020/9/29/21494514/mlb-postseason-2020-game-1-oakland-as-chicago-white-sox-score-result

Here we go again.

The Oakland A’s played their first postseason game of 2020 on Tuesday, and it went eerily similar to the ones they played the last couple years. Fortunately, this time it’s a best-of-three series instead of a one-and-done disappointment.

The A’s lost 4-1 to the Chicago White Sox in Game 1 of the first-round Wild Card Series, on a day in which they seemed to be overmatched from start to finish. The key stat is that the Sox had as many homers as the A’s had hits, which tells you everything you need to know about the proceedings.

The decision to start a lefty in the face of the statistical evidence that showed it to be unwise was our downfall. I wonder if Melvin is calling the shots, or whether Billy is interfering in post-season strategy.

Expand full comment

A victory but definitely there was a feeling of choke-i-ness in the 9th. Just glad for the boys that they pulled it out. Now the decision is Fiers, Minor, or Manaea to start tomorrow. I'd vote for Fiers because of his experience and the fact that the A's are 8-3 this season when he pitches and he tends to get run support. Great to see KD hit a long one. It also hit the target in left center meaning that Round Table has to give a free personal pizza to everyone that purchases a cut-out, (At least I think it hit it.)

Health Savings Accounts - yay? nay?

Expand full comment
author

When I was younger, it was nay because it was a crapshoot if I needed anything during a year. In middle age, it's a yay. Then my wife's work made it a moot point because they gave her a "free" $8k/year HSA as a standard benefit.

Expand full comment

I have one. One benefit is that you can use it as a savings for future health expenses. So you can put away pretax money now and use it later when you're older for health expenses. The HSA is owned by you not the health insurance so when you leave them and go to another one, you keep your HSA and all the pretax money you put in it. As long as it's used for IRS qualified medical expenses it's pre-tax. For example, some OTC medicines, orthodontics if your dental plan doesn't cover it.

The difference between a Flex spending account is that the Flex spending account has to be used by the end of the year. The HSA just stays around forever.
