Is there supposed to be a deeper meaning for "Fleishman is in trouble?"

To be honest, all I see are rich white people complaining their lives aren’t 100% perfect.


Oh, and I watched the movie “White noise“ on Netflix, I won’t say anything about it, because that might influence your decision about watching it.

I have a power bank/portable charger

With a USB-C input and two USB-A inputs.

I was going to add a picture here, but I don’t know how to do that from my phone.

I know how to charge a device with it, but I do not remember how to charge the power bank itself.

It has two USB A inputs (the larger end, not the smaller end) and one USB-C input.

Thanks for the answers, I figured it out, usb-c to usb-c like the one I have to charge my laptop.

The usb-a inputs on the power bank are the larger end of a usb a cord and there is no usb a smaller end input, if you know what I mean.

If today does not go our way, i.e. the way of patriots, decent human beings, HERE is why

Greg Palast has been trying to warn about this but I rarely see anyone even acknowledge this.

1.86 million voters cast ballots so far for the runoff, down 39% from the 3.1 million voters who cast ballots ahead of the Senate runoffs in January 2021


151,016 voters cast absentee/mail ballots ahead of the runoff, down 36% from November’s general election and down 86% from the January 2021 runoff, held during the pandemic


You see, GOP and Kemp saw how Warnock the first time so they made it illegal to vote like that again.


Goes on to explain

“We’d likely see shorter lines if voters could have more effectively requested mail ballots,” said Michael McDonald, a political science professor at the University of Florida who tracks early voting turnout. “And the fact that we’re seeing these lines every day – just in certain localities – tells you there’s something systemic going on here.”


It goes on, as you can see REAL BAD


McDonald said it’s hard to know how early voting turnout will affect overall turnout and that it was impossible to know how many would-be voters were discouraged enough by mail ballot regulations or long in-person lines to just skip voting early altogether.

“For folks who have hourly jobs [or may] have childcare/family obligations... it's the choice between [not voting] or having their paycheck cut in half for the day,” said Xakota Espinoza with Fair Fight Action, a voter advocacy group founded by Democrat Stacey Abrams.
