    hi. Ellen and i were to do door to door canvassing. As one of the founders of rabbis4biden, i was scheduled to do speeches in synagogues in southern nc and northern fl. As with rabbis4obama, sc was considered a waste of time, which hurt jamie h and joe c. We were limited to phone calls.

    our canvassing and talks were cancelled due to covid. synagogues are closed.
    however, since repugs think that likelihood of catching covid in a 3 minute door way conversation, is nil, they canvassed.[ actually, according to the cdc, a masked person talking to an unmasked person, outside, for less than 15 minutes, really does make transmission nil.]

    many churches stayed open, some with outside services, some with inside with some rows and chairs blocked off. repugs spoke there.

    we still have a majority in the house, and if GA dems mask up and ring doorbells, we have a good chance of gaining two more seats in the senate. if canvassers wear masks, gloves and even goggles, limit their doorway talks to 3 to 5 minutes, wash their gloved hands with a 70% alcohol disinfectant, after every home visited, they would be covid-safe.

    we also have 2022 to prepare for NOW.there will be no covid then. we need an ‘army’ of canvassers on the streets in every state where a senate seat is in play, and in districts where house seats are in play.

    we have 48 senate votes which includes 2 independent who tend to vote dem.[king and sander] the repugs have 50. however this shot list of repug senators have voted with dems, on rare occasions, and may do so now more often with the fear of trump gone:
    #52 0.62 Sen. Richard Burr [R-NC]
    #54 0.56 Sen. Susan Collins [R-ME]
    #55 0.56 Sen. Richard Shelby [R-AL]
    #56 0.50 Sen. Lisa Murkowski [R-AK]
    #39 0.72 Sen. Mitt Romney [R-UT]
    and we have veep kamala as a tiebreaker.

    for now, let us concentrate on GA, and then on to 2022! blessings, arthur
    ps: watching trump with his coterie of liars, thieves ,lawyers, and grifters, still trying to over turn GA’s 16 EC votes and PA’s 20 EC votes and some other states, still makes me uneasy, as to whom our president will be on Jan 20th at 12:01 PM. If the decision goes into a joint session of congress, the way those who vote are picked, put the repugs in charge. I find trump’s assertion that he will leave the WH IF the elect college and joint session of congress vote for biden, as telling. trump still believes he can win the presidency in the courts, with ‘disloyal’ electors, and in a joint session of congress. He isn’t packing just yet, and i wonder how many valuable american relics will be in his suitcases.

    God willing, Pres Biden and his covid task force, will be real docs, and Biden will let them produce a national program and will stay out of their way, and let them work to do scientifically based prevention, treatment, and a fair and quick dissemination of the vaccine. Happy Thanksgiving!

    thanks richard:

    prior to covid, when was first struck with hypersensitivity pneumonitis, brought on by aspergillus mold in a clay class she was taken, musc sent her to ace hardware near the northridge movie theatre, to be fitted for a n100, with valve mask.

    when covid hit and musc put us in strict quarantine in the first week of march, they told us to put the n100 mask in a drawer and buy n95 or if sold out,kn95s.

    we could find 2 n95 masks to buy, at a premium price, and then with in a month, k95s. the ‘k’ means chinese made, and many, even the ones sold at burkes pharm, were conterfits.

    eventually the CDC told ‘us’ how to recognize counterfeit from real KN95, and we were able to buy a box of 20 for 50$.

    thanks for an important article, because these self made bandana masks, do nothing.

    hi ron. i truly hope you’re correct that biden will win. ga and pennsy are almost done counting, and basically biden and trump are tied. AP and axios and others have called AZ for biden, but the rest of the news agencies are unsure,just as they are unsure about NV. there is 10-15% votes uncounted in these two states. winning back the heartland: when we look at maps, its obvious, the cities are dem and rural are repubs. it’s not the heartland because the ‘heartland’ is spread thru out the usa. the NE and the west coast are blue but not 100% blue. there is heartland in all of the blue states, and some blue in all of the red states. so what do we mean by heartland> what are heartland values that heartland folks see that dems don’t have. or is it based on misinformation, like the propaganda coming out of the white house and twitter for 4 years? or is it basically white folks seeing their white USA slip away? and there is no cure for bigotry. to answer ron’s question, we need to sit down and talk with heart land folks and listen to their wants, desires and fears.on hhi, in the past few days, i’ve gotten calls and emails, from intelligent repubs who have joined fb pages calling for armed insurrection. and when i ask what is biden taking from you, that trump has give you, they say things like biden will ruin my health care. since most of my friends are my age and on medicare and supplemental policies, i can easily show them how that isn’t changing. and when i go thru every talking point, and can aleve fears in a sentence or two, we are left with one sticking point, they don’t want non-whites taking over. and by that they means Blacks. The are fine with Asians like Nikki Haley and even Jews, but when you get them to open up, the truth comes out. They see Blacks as the root cause of the econ, drug issues, health care costs, etc etc. And no matter what i say, can change their minds. We are not going to change deep seated scapegoat bigotry. Now these folks will support causes helping Blacks, like the Gullah museum, or deep well, etc, but they dont want ”them” running things. this is hard to write, esp with such uncertainty with the election, but when the heartland becomes less lily white, and more of color, and intermarriages take place, and politicians try to bring us together with education, in 20 years, we may have an american, not thinking in terms of race, blue v red, but as one country. as always, i pray i am wrong.

    thanks Bob: we’ve been been donating to biden, jamie, and joe c, all along. and have asked others to do so as well. it’s the home stretch. we need to saturate the media with ads. after reading what trump jr said about the rising deaths from covid being ‘nothing’, and then reading steven miller’s 4 point plan for immigration (all that was missing was the plan for crematoria) and this is BEFORE the election, shows to me at least, how confident they are that their trumpist-sickness has infected enough people in the usa to vote for their feurer. can you imagine imagine mccain in 2008 or romney in 2012 saying these things? they would have been chastised heavily in a bipartisan manner. We say, my gosh, only 8 years ago we elected pres obama to a second term with 332 electoral votes and circa 96 million voters’ votes. 8 years ago we say. But look what happened to Germany from 1933 to 1939!! Six years from a democracy, to being fascist state, killing their own citizens, and starting WW2, with the populace cheering them on. Bob is so right. Send the money you’re saving by not eating in restaurants to our candidates and VOTE like you and your fellow humans’ lives depended on it. IT DOES! Thanks Bob et.al. Blessings, Arthur

    dear elliot: wow. thanks. glad you got your ballots also and sent them in. i AM aware of the post office having a photo on file of every piece of mail to be delivered, and some of my friends have an app, that they use while they are away, to see what mail is being held for them. we are very vanilla, and don’t get mail that i’d be embarrassed about if someone knew. we would be the hardest people to blackmail. i hope the ballots are not lost. we are under strict quarantine and can’t go to the polls in person, or we would. again thanks. gmar tov!
