From the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel: Simons: Why we must recount by hand:


Dane County Circuit Judge Valerie Bailey-Rihn said:

Dane County Circuit Judge Valerie Bailey-Rihn said the effort to force the hand recount — which was backed by Democrat Hillary Clinton’s campaign — did not meet the state’s legal standard for prohibiting the use of machines in the recount, saying that the two campaigns did not show a hand recount, though more thorough, was necessary or show there was a clear and convincing evidence of fraud or other problems.


The insanity of not ordering a recount by hand is too hard to think about. Democracy.....that once was a sacred idea….Democracy….an idea that millions, over the centuries, suffered fought and died for…. Democracy… America’s role as trustee to Democracy over? Democracy, why we celebrate the 4th of July. No longer can the parallels to the rise of Nazi Germany be an exaggeration. How will we tell our grand children what we are witnessing? How do you explain it?

It seems it's all racism, all the time w/the GOP...Neo-Nazi robocall hits Iowa on Molly Tibbett’s murder: “KILL THEM ALL. ” Richard Wolff drops by about the National Debt. Is it a disaster or an OK thing? Also - Trump & The National Enquirer - Is the Economy Here To Serve Us Or Are We Here to Serve the economy?
