Manila missed an epic typhoon Sunday and let us hope the USA misses a typhoon of it's own today , that being the re-election of trump .Another 4 years of him wud be a disaster for America and the world .Voting is going on as I type .
Polls say one time Vice President Biden will win , I hope so .I already voted absentee ( wanted to make sure my vote counted ) while the other 5 people on our team went over to the embassy to drop their ballots off .Of the 6 of us only one was for trump .We were planning to kill him but didn't since none of know anything about finance
Not much fun this election .When I was in Beijing in 2012 the Republicans had a lavish buffet reception with a band .The food was good .More fun at a bar where the Democrats were , not as fancy but lots more energy & fun .Especially since Obama won .
Will do something to celebrate Biden's victory if that happens as is expected .CNNI says we won't know the results returns for another week but hope there will be signs of Biden's win .
Moi, the election is getting heated. Trump already saying that he has won, Biden saying that it's too soon to call as there are lots of votes to come in. Trump is now saying that it's a fraud and that he will get the ?Court of Justice involved. Stores are now putting boards up in case of riots! Whatever next?
You can't go back and change the beginning, but you can start where you are and change the ending. C. S. Lewis
Sadly Moi I think there'll be huge dissatisfaction in your homeland whatever the outcome. I am firmly hoping for Biden, and if he doesn't win then will he agree with Donald's statement that the whole thing is rigged and suggest a re-run?!

An American friend sent me a news New York Times article reporting protests across the country. It is scary stuff when you read there are people in the crowds with Ar-15 rifles!!!! I hope this ends peacefully.
On Wednesday nite here when it looked like cheeto was winning I first was so nervous I could not get to sleep but then did but woke up with gruesome nitemares .
However today as of this moment it looks very good for Biden
There people with rifles & shot guns at polling places all over the USA according to CNNI trying to appear tough .Fools . To many Americans a gun is a placebo that will get you thru any crisis although from what I have scene they make trouble & can cost lots of money . I do expect there to be terrorism if trump loses .There was a TV show on in 2016 called DESIGNATED SURVIVOR about a right wing plot to take over the USA , as wild as that sounded the Trump era makes the show look like a situation comedy .
5 of the 6 people on our team voted for Biden The sixth person is a guy who is a colossal dork even in the best of times always times talking loudly , smokes , although never a soldier does plenty of tough talk about crime terrorism israel , and can be creepy with the 3 women on our the team . In short the perfect trump supporter
The mostly expat population of my apartment building are mostly for Biden and think trump is a headcase. My friend from Australia says he personifies the 'Ugly American 'stereotype .
If Biden wins the Americans in our building are going to brave the corona and have a victory party
Its creeping more and more towards Biden - first thing I check now when I wake - but Trump is already showing his true colours as a bad loser. He just cannot imagine that there may just be someone in America more popular then him!!
