NM Republicans match the rest of Trumpland in hypocrisy

President Trump continues to rail against voting by mail but the NM GOP is putting a selective spin on the bashing to justify its own mailer to Bernalillo County voters that includes an absentee ballot application. The party quotes Trump as saying on July 30 that “I will be an absentee voter. We have a lot of absentee voters. It works. So we are in favor of absentee.”…

President Trump continues to draw false distinctions between mail-in and absentee ballots, claiming the former are rife with voter fraud while the latter — which he has used as president — require a voter to go through “a very strict process. The equivalent of going to a voting machine, or maybe even sometimes better.” Voting experts told us the verification process is the same for absentee and mail-in ballots, and many states consider them to be the same thing.

Conservatives are stuck with this self-image of being the only true hard-working Americans – therefore the only folks who deserve to vote. So, making it easier only applies to their votes.

Yup. Hogwash!

My wife is getting used to sleeping in a quiet bedroom

I stopped using a CPAP machine to sleep a few weeks ago. After 17 years.

My O2 levels are now solid in the 90’s. And I have to admit losing 80 pounds was key. Walking ~3 miles/day at [a moderate] elevated respiration rate helps, too.

My sleep doc told me I could stop. That I had corrected everything causing my sleep apnea as far as he could determine.

Frankly, I’ve been very happy with the solid sleep I’ve enjoyed over the years with a couple of different CPAP machines over time. Wore the first one out in a decade.

Took a year before I tried this. Love the change.
