    So you guys have resorted to defending the intelligence of Democrat activists?

    Interesting.
    I was wondering how long it was going to take them to catch on. Why did you have to ruin it!
    Making a point and lobbing an insult at a demographic at the same time, well I'll be darned, pretty clever there hey

    I'm just enjoying the flat spin the Dems are in.  Primaries are when the politically motivated folks driven by their sense of. . .whatever. . .pick who the rest of the country goes out to vote for in November.  And what are they picking for us?

    1.  An openly gay small town mayor who apparently didn't run his small town all that well.  His party may applaud his lifestyle choices, but he'll lose votes just on the basis of folks who don't want to see the new "first lady".  His governing experience will be the basis of judgement for others.

    2.  A pair of whackadoodle socialists.  That ain't gonna fly nationwide.

    3.  A senile former VP who, now that his party has legitimized impeachment as a tool for the grinding of political axes, will probably be looking at impeachment charges on Day One of his administration.

    They have nothing to run on besides "I'm not Trump".  The fact that they can't even count properly in the "official" election season kickoff event is not showcasing them well to the undecided masses - if there is such a thing at this point.

    Are we watching the Democrats turn into the new Green, Libertarian, or Peace & Freedom party?  You know, the place for ideas that very few people take seriously enough to throw a vote at?  I am VERY ok with that.

    DHS just announced they will suspend Global Entry and other trusted traveler programs to anyone living in New York State.  MILLIONS of illegal aliens (estimates says about 1.2 MILLION in the NY Metro area alone) are now eligible to get New York State Driver Licenses and therefore will be in line to vote because in New York State they verify your eligibility by, guess what ,YOUR STATE ID!!! and a statement by the voter on the registration card that he is a citizen, which they DO NOT VERIFY.  

    They will overrun the State and the Democrats will be screaming once again that they won the popular vote nationwide because they have an extra million or two in California and New York.  Hey, in Florida, no proof of citizenship is required to vote.

    But I'm SURE I'm just imagining this.  Stupid conspiracy theories...

    I don't think it is rude to point out the truth. Rural areas are notorious for having poor connectivity. For good reason. It's way more expensive to cover lots of area with very few customers, just simple economics. I've driven across Iowa before. It was a few years ago, but I barely had service along major highways. I can't imagine what it's like in many of the more rural spots. Maybe things have changed and the state is now blanketed with 4g coverage, but seems unlikely. 

    I also don't think it's that crazy to point out that on average old people are more likely to be election volunteers (like 75% of the poll workers I've encountered in my life were retired). It's also not crazy to point out that ON AVERAGE they're less technology literate. I love my dad. He's a very smart man. He's also set in his ways and has no interest in figuring out modern technology. He wouldn't know the first thing about downloading an app, let alone how to use it etc. My mom is only slightly better. I'm guessing they're not the only old people who have trouble with all this stuff. It seems people get to a point in their lives and just don't care, need, or want the new fangled things and dont care to take the time to learn them or figure them out. 

    Anyway I guess it's rude to point these facts out. 
    The problem is not the poll workers, the problem is not their age, the problem is not the cell service, the problem is the crappy app, the lack of training for the poll workers, the lack of foresight into connectivity issues, and the poor attitude towards folks in rural areas

    Well at some point don’t you think that old people, people who can’t understand technology and people of   “below average” intelligence don’t get to vote. I mean come on they are stupid how can we trust them with important matters like choosing our  government, and why do they need those nice things too. After all they are too stupid to appreciate them, let’s redistribute them to those that will appreciate them. Stupid rural cave dwellers. 

    Alpha, your quote

    “Seems they cut short the budget for interface design/human factors including making sure it was user friendly enough for old people in rural Iowa with limited connectivity and minimal tech competence.“

     Is one of the most arrogant, close minded things I’ve had to read in a while. Are you really that out of touch thinking that only people like you are able to navigate todays tech? Broaden your horizons my friend.

    Yeah, you throw stats out there when it suits you and then you rely on life experience "stats" when it suits you, interesting the amount of chastising you dish out when folks on here use there life experiences as a yardstick to measure things.

    HEY!!!  Late breaking news!!!!!  It was THE RUSSIANS 😂😂😂😂

    Democratic Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee of Texas suggested Wednesday that the Russians were behind the vote-reporting app crashing during Monday’s Iowa Democratic caucuses.

    At an FBI oversight hearing in the House Judiciary Committee with FBI Director Christopher Wray, Jackson Lee said she hoped Iowa Democrats would press the FBI to study the Russia’s involvement in the Iowa caucuses, where full results were yet to be released four days later.

    Ok.  She represents a district in Houston.  It's probably a lot like the district that Maxine represents.  Does that explain it?
