    Guard Duck would do a better job defending our democracy if he was at a computer stopping hackers.

    I hope he’s planning to use that thing on certain politicians who want to prevent certain groups of people from voting.

    But, Guard Duck, what about Russians who’ve legally immigrated into America?

    Steph, where’s L’il Guard Duck been all this time?! I’ve missed the little guy. And did you realize when you drew him, you were drawing a perfect little Call drake? Check the Standard of Perfection. The painting of a White Call is him!

    I’m not worried about the Russians at the polling stations. It’s the radical right wing guard ducks that are worrisome. The police are quite capable of handling security at polling stations.

    If bazookas are outlawed, only ducks will have bazookas. Or something like that.

    I will be at that ballot box as a poll worker on Tuesday. Unlike duck, I don’t have any weaponry, but I do have faith in my fellow team of well trained official poll workers. I have been working early voting as well and my Florida county is businesslike, professional and people are voting. Early Voting numbers, one more day to go are up to 68% of registered voters have voted. Every vote counts, PLEASE VOTE and make sure everyone you know in your contact list votes!

    Tis from the very top, i.e., the Presidency, wherein Larry needs to direct his attention. Americans need the full translations of the Putin-Trump conversations to read what perfidy was done in her name.

    No firearms allowed in the polling place except on-duty peace officers. No ducks. At least in Texas.

    Hacking is not just an IT activity, it exists wherever there are rules. Hacking a system requires knowing its rules better than the people who created it or who run it. Which is why the vast majority of us have trouble getting into our own account.

    And to think that some people faint away at the sight of a citizen carrying a handgun….
