[9:08pm] jokeefe: glad to hear it
[9:09pm] Olivia_: Thank you Bosun!
[9:09pm] Olivia_: Thank you everyone!
[9:09pm] Sayyida:
[9:10pm] yari: Jokeefe is there anything USPP can do to help support Mass for the conference?
[9:10pm] yari: Also can we attend?
[9:10pm] jokeefe: Others can attend
[9:10pm] yari:
[9:11pm] Bosun: Others appreciate that.
[9:11pm] jokeefe: We are working on the technical details since it will be all virtual
[9:13pm] Bosun: Are we going to make any public comments on the election?
[9:13pm] yari: we as in the USPP?
[9:13pm] Bosun: Yes.
[9:13pm] jokeefe: Mass. has only endorsed two local ballot questions
[9:13pm] Sayyida: should we do a "viewing" for election night?
[9:14pm] Sayyida: for the national that is
[9:14pm] yari: I got an email question recently about the election actually
[9:14pm] Sayyida: oh?
[9:14pm] jokeefe: live chat. could live stream something
[9:14pm] Sayyida: yea
[9:14pm] Olivia_: Jitsi while streamed to YouTube?
[9:14pm] Sayyida: drinks, food and commentary
[9:15pm] jokeefe: yes, we could do that Olivia_
[9:15pm] yari: That might be a good idea, though I would emphasize that the election will not be decided that night
[9:15pm] Bosun: We need to push the dems if they win.
[9:15pm] Olivia_: You can promote it is election night coverage and promote it as a special event.
[9:16pm] yari: In all likelyhood, results will not be known until a week or two afterword
[9:16pm] yari: Mail in ballots have to be counted
[9:16pm] Olivia_: So anyone around the world can attend too.
[9:16pm] Sayyida: yep and I tend to be baked for the following 2 weeks after the election
[9:16pm] Sayyida: I do not like how I feel about this ending
[9:17pm] Bosun: I sense a GOP rout.
[9:17pm] Sayyida: yep
[9:17pm] yari: Senses aside
[9:17pm] yari: What are we doing?
[9:18pm] yari: If we're doing coverage on the 3rd, we need to deal with the possibility that we will likely not know results
[9:18pm] yari: Which is fine
[9:18pm] yari: Just be aware of that
[9:18pm] Olivia_: Most will just do commentary and laugh at out democracy and mock the commentators on tv.
[9:18pm] Bosun: Cobble together points the Dems don't want to cover? Human rights? Elimination of drone strikes?
[9:18pm] yari: And also be emotionally prepared for... whatever the frick happens with trump
[9:18pm] jokeefe: With so many people voiting early, many of the ballots will be available to count on election day
[9:19pm] Sayyida: yea i have a feeling we will know by friday
[9:19pm] Bosun: Can we set up a fund for a one way ticket to Moscow?
[9:19pm] Olivia_: I couldn't stop crying in 2016.  
[9:20pm] Sayyida: same Olivia_
[9:20pm] yari: I think we could use this to make a strong case for online voting, actually
[9:20pm] yari: If we want to
[9:20pm] Sayyida: yep or better funding for public services
[9:20pm] Sayyida: I have a running list written when frustrated, so its not safe for work?
[9:20pm] Bosun: Or mail. It works well if the USPS gets fixed. (another bullet point)
[9:21pm] jokeefe: having a plan for what to do whatever happens is important
[9:21pm] yari: Yes that too
[9:21pm] Sayyida: but its mostly about things  we need to push for reform
[9:21pm] Bosun: Yes. No excuses from the Dems if they capture both houses and the Presidency.
[9:22pm] Olivia_: Can the Jitsi be spolit half the screen with TV coverage while the other half the rest on the Jitsi?
[9:22pm] Olivia_: So we can just watch one screen.
[9:22pm] yari: That's a good tech question
[9:22pm] yari: I know how to do that in OBS but not Jitsi
[9:22pm] jokeefe: as long as we have another computer to stream the channel
[9:23pm] yari: Should we set up a point person for the tech on this?
[9:23pm] Bosun: How piraty. Pirate a live cable stream.
[9:23pm] Sayyida: can't we do a shared screen? and you can show whatever is on your screen?
[9:24pm] Sayyida: so you can have say cnn or whatever coverage on one side and video on the other?
[9:24pm] jokeefe: Ask Joe
[9:24pm] Bosun: Who want to monitor FOX?
[9:24pm] Sayyida: i bet joe could stomach it lol
[9:24pm] Bosun: You are bad.
[9:25pm] yari: Which Joe
[9:25pm] yari: Joe username Joe
[9:25pm] yari: Or Bosun
[9:25pm] Bosun: Joe Shmoe
[9:25pm] Sayyida: we have 3 technically yes?
[9:25pm] Bosun: Remember we publish these comments.
[9:26pm] Sayyida: I was referring to USN joe, I know his job involves interacting with conservatives
[9:26pm] yari: my bad.
[9:27pm] Sayyida: i can't stomach that level of pure insanity
[9:27pm] jokeefe: Democracy Now is probably free to use
[9:27pm] Bosun: Yes.
[9:27pm] Sayyida: he probably can tolerate the bull better than me or Bosun
[9:27pm] Sayyida: Democracy Now is a good option for neutral
[9:28pm] Bosun: Leftie ANTIFA fans at DN. (joking)
[9:28pm] yari: Was about to say I would be able to help with the stream, then I remembered I work on the 3rd
[9:28pm] Bosun: We have two minutes.
[9:29pm] yari: I have a suggestion.
[9:29pm] Bosun: How about we trow some talking points up on our brand new list - what we would like to see.
[9:29pm] Bosun: throw
[9:30pm] Olivia_: Can I get on the list or is it only members?
[9:30pm] Bosun: go ahead.
[9:30pm] yari: Is there any way we could submit items for the USPP meeting agenda before the meeting itself, but between meetings?
[9:30pm] Bosun: yes. Just ask.
[9:30pm] yari: Bosun was that to me or Olivia
[9:31pm] Olivia_: If there are any lists and newsletters, here's my email.
[9:31pm] Bosun: Agenda items. ask me.
[9:31pm] yari: Okay. It would be nice to have a complete agenda of some sort before each meeting. Ideally, in the future, assembled from each subcommittee and previous agenda items?
[9:32pm] yari: But I realize that is for a later more organized and more populated time
[9:32pm] Bosun: I can insert them in the wiki-agenda-items whan I get them.
[9:32pm] Bosun: OK past time.
[9:32pm] jokeefe: I added you to the SAB list Olivia_
[9:32pm] Olivia_: Oh thank you so much!
[9:33pm] yari: Okay, goodnight all.
[9:33pm] yari: Bosun please add USPP discord rules to agenda for next week
[9:33pm] Bosun: We are adjourned then?
[9:33pm] Bosun: Any objections?
[9:33pm] jokeefe: none from me
[9:33pm] Sayyida: night yall
[9:34pm] Olivia_: Goodnight!
[9:34pm] Momma_turtle left the chat room. (Quit: Leaving)
