BTW, the last time a Democratic conceded on the night of the election was Dukakis. It happened 32 years ago. No Democrat since then has ever conceded on the night of the election. Of course for Hiden, this topic, like the Supreme Court and his family's kickbacks from foreign governments, aren't relevant and so no one is allowed to ask him that question.

Oh, let's get rid of all the mail in ballots. That makes sense.
Didn’t say that but if the last day to cast a vote in person is November 3rd all mail in ballots should be post marked by November 3rd. If not why have in person voting end on November 3rd just move it back another 2 weeks.

the state is no longer reporting total hospitalization and daily ICU numbers with the Covid report. That seems interesting. Not saying it’s under Walz’s order, but if you’re the governor everything a state agency does is your issue.
What about the 7 million dollar bix warehouse building that was needed for dead bodies. Now it’s being used as a glorified warehouse to store masks and gloves.
How about allowing the candy store in Jordan to open to help out a friend while shutting down other small businesses.
There is always waiting 4 days to call in the national guard after the city burned. Plus he allowed the Christopher Columbus statue to be torn down when he knew people were intent to do that. Notice that it has not been put back up yet.
The Columbus statue, good your priorities are straight.

So your saying walz ordered the candy store be allowed to open? Seems to me they are selling food so should have been allowed based on what was closed/open.

It's not clear to me that you know what a lie is.

No he allowed them to be opened by specifically calling them an essential store.

No comment about the bix warehouse or the burning of the city. Yes the statue should have been a priority given it’s state owned property on state property. No reason they could not have reinstalled it instead they will wait until it is forgotten and it will never reappear.

Trump can concede on November 2. We won't have to worry about it then.

Hmm. Maybe it's because the R's have only won the popular vote ONCE since that night? And even that one time came down to a couple % in Ohio.

STFU with all this. The warehouse was purchased in the early stages of the pandemic when NY was setting up triage centers in city parks. Nothing wrong with being overly prepared. George Floyd died on March 25; Walz called the NG on May 28, the day after all the fires. You can argue that he should have done it sooner, but the city didn't burn for four days before the call. The guy who toppled the statue was charged with a felony. And a fucking candy store in Jordan? That's the best yeahbut you could come up with?

No the $7 million dollar warehouse is the best I could come up with. Oh and New York City has a population of 8 million the cities on Minneapolis and St. Paul a combined 750,000. So to think what happened in New York would happen here is silly.

The national guard was in the city the night they let the police precinct burn down. They retreated and let it happen. A major f#ck up by walz and our leaders. There is no defense for them.

What could possibly be more embarrassing than letting a precinct burn to the ground? I read that it was the first time it has happened in America since the 60s. The 1860s. Walz and Frey would have immediately resigned if they had any class at all. The biggest blight on a city in my lifetime. Those losers are clueless and couldn’t manage a McDonalds.

Lol, vote him out or just keep crying whatever works for you.
Is Walz up for election in November? For the so-called pro-democracy crowd, you sure are a bunch of fascists.

Only in a thread where Trump is making excuses for why he wouldn't step down if he loses the election.....a bunch of dotard Trump slurpers would come in hot with "WHY WON'T WALZ STEP DOWN!?".

Despite the fact that he's not even up for reelection. You can't even assign the righties here an IQ. Most of them need something easier....like a color.

No...he's not. So why are you bringing him up in thread about Trump potentially refusing to step down if he loses?

Oh right. You are another deranged righty.

I have commented in the past, yes many mistakes made then, primarily a failure to grasp how bad it would get.

Fascism typically involves using state power in the furtherance of business interests like violently crushing unions and forcing people to work including slave labor. As long as the business is in support of the state. The shutdown are kind of the antithesis of this, shutting down businesses to protect the people.

Here is a bit from wiki

"
Fascists opposed both international socialism and free-market capitalism, arguing that their views represented a third position.[20][21] They claimed to provide a realistic economic alternative that was neither laissez-faire capitalism nor communism.[22] They favored corporatism and class collaboration, believing that the existence of inequality and social hierarchy was beneficial (contrary to the views of socialists),[23][24] while also arguing that the state had a role in mediating relations between classes (contrary to the views of liberal capitalists).[25] An important aspect of fascist economies was economic dirigism,[26] meaning an economy where the government often subsidizes favorable companies and exerts strong directive influence over investment, as opposed to having a merely regulatory role. In general, fascist economies were based on private property and private initiative, but these were contingent upon service to the state.[27]

Fascist governments encouraged the pursuit of private profit and offered many benefits to large businesses, but they demanded in return that all economic activity should serve the national interest.[12] Historian Gaetano Salvemini argued in 1936 that fascism makes taxpayers responsible to private enterprise because "the State pays for the blunders of private enterprise. [...] Profit is private and individual. Loss is public and social".[28]"

Maybe you should turn your concern to Minnesota’s sitting governor who isn’t giving up power right now. It’s actually happening today, vs a hypothetical that may happen in a few months.
Gee you "psuedo- intellectual" I didn't know Walz was the Gov. of NY - hint my moniker identifies where I live.

You lost the little credibility you have with your nonsensical "Cattle Car" thread.

After the election is over, feel free to move to Belarus - I hear Minsk is lovely in November.

Because Trump hasn’t refused to step down. It’s really simple.

Maybe Dayton is a better example- using public funds for private enterprises.

Nah. He just hasn't said that he would when asked. And him and his cronies are looking into ways to bypass election results.

Burn down democracy says JG! We'll rename America, The Gulch.

This thread is a treat. You lefties are complete wackos. All I hear about is what Trump “will do”. Lawsuits, military, refusing to leave office, etc. Outrage over things that haven’t happened yet you rationalize Walz who is actually doing things to achieve what Trump “will do”. Blind as a bat is an understatement.

Pages of outrage on how Trump “will corrupt COVID data” (never happened) yet it is no big deal when MN just stops reporting critical COVID data.

Pages of outrage about how Trump is committing “election fraud in broad daylight”, yet Bloomy paying folks to vote in FL is no big deal.

Sh!t, I could go on and on, but none of you care about reality. The biggest hypocrites on earth are today’s Democratic Party
