Call to Action! Tell Susan Collins to Vote for SCOTUS!

Use the Links Below to Email & Tweet Susan Collins!

The Senate is composed of 53 Republicans, 45 Democrats, and 2 “Independents.” President Trump will need 50 Republican votes to push through his Supreme Court appointee, with Vice President, Mike Pence, casting the tie-breaking vote. 

Our wonderful senator from Maine, Susan Collins, is on record stating that the appointment to the Supreme Court “should be made by the President who is elected on November 3rd.” This is not acceptable, and we must let her know! Stand Up, Maine! urges you to call, email, and tweet Susan Collins today, and every day until the vote! We need to use our collective power to get her to work for us, the people who voted for her! Let her feel the fear of losing her seat if she does not vote on the SCOTUS appointee before Nov. 4th. 

Below are links to send out pre-written form letters and tweets to Senator Collins. Find the correct section (Mainer or Out-of-Stater), then click on the link for the email provider you use, and a new window open up with the letter, email addresses, and subject all filled out! All you need to do is sign your name. If you prefer to tweet, just click on the tweet provided.

Here is a copy of the email that will be sent when you click on a link below (with changes for non-Maine residents):

Dear Senator Collins,

As a conservative Maine voter and current Collins supporter, I request you to unconditionally support President Trump and Majority Leader Mitch McConnell in their efforts to fill the seat left vacant by Ruth Bader Ginsburg. 

By supporting the President, you will gain conservative votes here in Maine (many are currently planning to leave the senate ballot option blank, or will vote for Max Linn). If you fail to support President Trump and Mitch McConnell, you will be handing your Senate seat directly to Sara Gideon. 

Please do the right thing- support President Trump and Senator McConnell’s efforts to fill the vacant Supreme Court seat.

Online Dating Safety and How to Recognize Red Flags

One of the key questions surrounding online dating is whether these platforms lead to long-term relationships. Some 53% of adults under 30 have ever used a dating site or app – including a quarter who have used one in the past year. This compares with 37% of those ages 30 to 49 who have ever tried online dating and smaller shares of those 50 to 64 (20%) and 65 and older (13%) who say the same.

  • “They are being tricked meeting up with people. And once they are getting there, they are actually taking money from them and things like that.”
  • Additionally, male profiles that had a biography received 69 matches while those without received only 16 matches .
  • There are also useful questionnaires that give you insight into your actually any traits and compatibility skills, which can help australia online dating game regardless of really hookup you end up using the most.
  • According to Pew’s survey, 44 percent of online daters say they are looking for a long-term partner, 40 percent are interested in casual dating, 24 percent want casual sex, and 22 percent are just interested in friendship.

Pluralities also believe that whether a couple met online or in person has little effect on the success of their relationship. There are some groups who are particularly wary of the idea of meeting someone through dating platforms.

Tip 2: Build a genuine connection

Dating experts reveal the common blunders singles make with their photos, bios and prompts. Here are the new rules around ending a relationship by Zoom or texts. Furthermore, when describing themselves, people will often present their best selves while leaving out flaws. Some users may even deceptively present inaccurate information on their profile merely to get someone interested in them. Of course, hobbies and sports are always a great way to mingle. Consider joining a sports club or take lessons for an activity you want to start doing. Some people recommend Meet Upas a fun way to find people nearby who are interested in the same activities, whether that’s skating or going to museums or concerts.

Once the quiz is completed, you fill out your profile with prompts, photos, and icons to indicate your hobbies and interest. Our tester says the profile took at least 20 minutes to complete, although not all users include the same level of detail on their profiles. Every Thursday, the app comes to life with people near you who also want to meet that day. In the time it takes to order a drink on one date, you’ll be matched with 3 users in your area that match your preferences. As sparks typically fly in just moments, these mini-dates save users time and energy–all from the comfort of your couch. We believe in quality over quantity, and that smart daily recommendations are better for busy people than an unlimited buffet of options. We let you set ultra-specific preferences and only suggest you a few Prospects a day that we think you will actually like.

A few of the best or cheapest competitors reaped significant gains while many former domestic champions or viable competitors lost out. These sites also generate significant levels of inequality, especially for men. One analyst found that“like inequality” for men on Tinderis higher than income inequality in the United States . Ananalyst at Hinge foundthat women’s inequality on that site was roughly equal to the average income inequality for the world’s countries (aGini coefficientof 0.376), similar to Western Europe.

Pure is a perfect match for those who value confidentiality, as profiles are removed every 24 hours. You can also send random pictures that will self-destruct a few seconds after your partner sees them. Even though Tinder claims to cater to all types of dating, everyone knows it’s best for one-night stands. Swipe right to meet people or left to remove them from your view. Priced at the higher $32 to $40 a month depending on age, all the Tinder Gold and Plus benefits are included at this tier.

A Digital Bill of Rights? A proposal by Scott Adams

A Digital Bill of Rights — Version 1.0

By Scott Adams | @ScottAdamsSays

Edited by Joshua Lisec @JoshuaLisec

Because we need a new system of rights for the new, digital age.

V1.0 is from Coffee with Scott Adams Episode 1054 July 11th, 2020

  1. Video evidence of a crime is not admissible in court unless both the prosecution and the defense agree that it shows what happened. Because videos, photos, and audio recordings are more misleading than clarifying. Removing the beginning or end of a video changes its context and therefore meaning.
  2. There is a maximum five-year ban from any digital platform, regardless of offense. Because public platforms are too important for daily life to have somebody blocked forever. If you come back and engage in the same behavior, you’re banned again.
  3. You have the right to know the identity of your online accuser. Because in the legal system, you have a right to know who accuses you. If somebody tweets that Scott Adams eats kittens, Mr. Adams has the right to petition Twitter to unveil that person’s identity.
  4. You are the only one who has the right to tell your opinion. Because no one knows your inner thoughts but you. In addition, you have the right to label all misrepresentations of your opinion online. 
  5. Nobody can be guilty by digital association. Simply having your photo taken with the worst person in the world doesn’t make you a bad person.
  6. You cannot be blamed for anything you say while anonymous. Because everybody says things privately that would get them canceled if said in public. This does not apply to threats of harm.
  7. You cannot be blamed for any digital reproduction of something that happened over twenty years ago. Because you should not be punished today because of something your digital ghost did—the version of you that no longer exists.
  8. Single source reporting must be self-labeled. Because news with one source is highly non-credible information.
  9. Any news reports corrections must be as prominent as the original story. Because fake news often gets millions of impressions while corrections get thousands.
  10. If you try to organize a boycott against any company, your own identity must be public. Because anyone calling for boycotts against American companies should not have the advantage of privacy when the target does not. Mutual assured destruction prevents that.
  11. It is illegal for news organizations (not an individual) to show a video or audio recording that is edited to change context or meaning. Because President Donald Trump never called the Charlottesville neo-Nazis “fine people,” a simple clarification which many news reports removed from the video excerpt they published.
