Its a Topsy-Turvey Day

By Daddy

Las Vegas — The wound nurse didn't show up yesterday, however it is to the point where I can dress the wound myself. After several days of "Blah" I woke up raring to go, at about 4:30 in the afternoon. Running late but feeling good.

Nevada state lawmakers passed a bill Sunday that would add Nevada to a growing list of states that will mail all active voters ballots ahead of the November election amid the coronavirus pandemic. Governor Steve Sisolak signed the bill on the Monday. On Tuesday the President sued Nevada.

I don't think that the President understands that most people in Nevada have a libertarian bent. This tactic may tend to backfire. The turnout could be spectacular as Nevadan flip him off in response to this attempt to target Nevada State Rights.

Luckily for us our next door neighbors in Amazon have been doing it a while and disagree with him: "He’s flat out wrong,” [Arizona Secretary of State] Katie Hobbs said of the president’s unfounded claims": “We have a long track record of successful and secure voting by mail in Arizona. Ballots are tracked when they leave the county recorder’s office to go to voters, and voters can find out the status of their ballots once they return it. So there’s a lot of safeguards in place." I suspect Arizona will have lots of suggestions.

Since it's a topsy-turvy day I'll be working on the SwiftUI course later today. The next project "VoiceOver" addresses accessibility which should be useful.

I've paid the July bills and I'm moving on to the August. I'm projecting that I'll be about $300 short for the month and I'll need to throw the rest of the stimulus check into the pot. To all those that have donated, Thank you! Any help is appreciated. Here's a link to the How to Donate Page
