Election Day 2020

     I might need some shinier foil to boost the reception of my tinfoil hat, (Oh, wait. I have a ham radio license I'm not using. I just brush up on antenna theory and...) 
     Err, uh,... As I was saying...but I have a feeling that more than Russia, and Iran are planning to hack our election. Our buddies from North Korea could jump in. China could make an appearance. They've been hacking us for years. (To be fair, we've been hacking them too.) But our attempts to hack their elections are senseless, because those nations have assured that their dictators are there for life. 
      But given the crazy quilt way in which we in the US run our elections, 50+ separate institutions with varying degrees of election security, counting and reporting protocols, and competence among election officials running all sorts of voting apparati (Is that a word??) All produced by, what, three different private voting machine companies, none of which are running open source voting machine software. It's a wonder that America's house of cards election system hasn't collapsed like a long condemned building.
      Plus Covid jumping in to implement its unique amendments to Murphy's Law. Safe to say that the media won't be able to deliver speedy election results this year. Yup, no calling an election five minutes after the polls close THIS year.
       Yes, boys and girls, I think that with all those factors in place. And considering the two men running for President, I think we are well and truly fracked. 😠😠😛😛😛
