(THREAD) starting over again to avoid confusion with my antiquated sarcastic sayings.

So this man seriously cares. He has "integrity" 😏

But what is really going on in Georgia and who is Brad Raffensperger

1/ So does integrity really matter - whether it's personal, business related or political?

Not sure I've seen much of that lately, so why don't we look at a couple of articles written BEFORE this election fiasco to see what was unfolding.
3/ This article was written one year ago:

"Dominion, based in Denver, must rush to install 30,000 voting machines for 7 million Georgia voters before the March 24 presidential primary, the largest rollout of elections equipment in U.S. history."

4/ Oh really?
5/ “What Georgia is trying to do basically blows my mind,” said Dwight Shellman, an election official at the Colorado secretary of state’s office. His state adopted a Dominion system in 2016.
6/ “We had 2 1/2 years to do it, and it was challenging,” Shellman said. “I can’t imagine implementing the number of counties Georgia has in, what, two months? Three months?”
7/ "Dominion won Georgia's $107 million elections contract this summer because it was the lowest bidder — not the best, according to score sheets from six state evaluators."
8/ "The nation's largest elections company and the state's existing provider, Election Systems & Software, received the highest technical score but lost the contract because of its $143 million price tag."
9/ "Among the other problems noted: A ballot scanner jammed several times. And the tablet computers that voters used to cast their ballots failed under certain circumstances, and it took 10 to 20 minutes to restore them."
10/ Dominion’s voting machinery is widely used in California, Colorado, Michigan and New York, among other states.
11/ "Founded in 2003 in Toronto, Dominion is privately owned by its management team and a New York-based private equity firm called Staple Street Capital Management"
12/ "In addition, campaign finance records show that Dominion employed prominent lobbyists during this year’s legislative session, which set the parameters for the state’s voting machine contract and budgeted $150 million for the job."
13/ Dominion’s 10 lobbyists include:

* former Secretary of State Lewis Massey (democrat)
* Jared Thomas, a former campaign manager and elections staffer for Gov. Brian Kemp (republican) when he was secretary of state.
“Elections security is my top priority,” Raffensperger said in a statement."

When they awarded the contract to Dominion

15/ BUT....

Georgia’s new voting machines, ‘fragile and error prone,’ get their first test

16/ "One of the examiners for the state of TX, which rejected the same Dominion system, referred to it as “fragile and error prone.”
17/ "It’s first major test of that claim was moved back to May 19, coinciding with the primaries for state offices, and then to June 9. But at last the examiner’s description was born out."
18/ "So much attention has been focused on the various problems in the voting process that the actual vote itself has received somewhat less notice than it might have. But there were some significant and surprising results."

there is some very interesting information in here if you can get past the angry sarcasm lol

1/ This guys seems to have an issue with partisanship:

"Maybe. But remember that Sequoia Pacific/Dominion Voting Systems hanging chad put Republican George W. Bush in the White House. Waiting till your boy has lost before complaining about it smacks of rank hypocrisy.

1/ So this is how Twitter works to misrepresent what you say and to make you feel like people aren't connecting.

I posted this tweet about student debt and addd comments for clarity to the thread.

Those comments disappeared along with the links.... Image
2/ You can clearly see the comments are there. Image
3/ What I added is - before you assume who my friends are they are people from all over the world and our educational system is messed up.

I addd a link to the salary for the dean of Harvard Business school poetsandquants.com/2020/07/14/har…
