Thank you, Cadence, for trying to provide insight as to what trump has done besides creating the divided states of America. You referenced the wall of which one thousand miles was promised and eighty new miles were completed (roughly three hundred and twenty miles was old wall that was reinforced). This was funded by diverting money from the pentagon under the pretense of a national security emergency after trump had said that Mexico would pay for it. We have seen no pesos traveling from the south as of today. Bringing jobs back to America was another perceived accomplishment. There has been a loss of approximately three point nine million jobs during the current administration as of October 2020. trump did accomplish getting Obama to produce his bona fide birth certificate, was the first president to be nominated for two impeachments, increased national debt by 23 trillion dollars, promoted distrust in science, was dishonest about a virus he knew was deadly with hope of propping up the economy and stock market, kept his infidelity payments secret/paid for tilll he was elected and made friends (kind of) with North Korea while alienating allies.

of the pro-trump protestors, that died yesterday during his hobby of treason and sedition, was previously pictured loving on two rifles (oh so-Rambo style) with a caption stating he wished his opponents would come to his hood in Alabama. He died of a heart attack after accidently tasering himself. Guess the guns couldn't guard him from his own lack of intelligence. Thirteen rioters have been arrested with dozens more placed on wanted bulletins by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Perhaps they will be arrested before they do harm to them selves. Comfort comes in the thought that these fine citizens will be charged with treason, sedition and rebellion among other charges any one of which will relieve them of their right to bear arms and vote. I think neutering should be added to their penalties.

Members are resigning, jumping ship and chastising trump. Are we surprised? trump was impeached. The house impeached trump. He was one of three presidents that have been impeached. So many people cling to thoughts other than he was impeached but the truth is that trump was impeached. All the Senate needed to do was to follow through with the wishes of the citizen majority, carried out by the House, and removed trump from office. It is more than likely that whoever took trump's spot would have taken the pandemic seriously and percentage of the three hundred and sixty five thousand dead Americans (including my mother) would still be alive. Five people died yesterday as a result of a rush on the Capitol after trump continued to lie about the election being stolen. Five people who will not be going home to their families. The blood of these five is on the hands of the Senate members that allowed trump to continue.

I love CCandPam's response about a free country becoming socialist.Small spelling error involved as CCandPam spelled facist as 'free'. Anyone can condone what happened yesterday definitely sits in the higher ranks of hatred and divisionism that is known as the Trump way of life. Fox news is speaking out against it. Amendment 25 can be implemented in under five days which would insure that the president is unable to cause any more damage to democracy.trump has continuously held on to the false belief that the election was rigged (more than his entry via Russian hackers in 2016). Sixty two election lawsuits and sixty one election lawsuit defeats-many from the same people from his party that he helped get elected. The Republican weighted supreme court has sided against trump. Three recounts have confirmed a Biden win. Thirteen days till President elect Biden takes office which is too long given the current president's lack of coherency.

Thank you very much! A Happy New Year to you as well! I just got back to my computer after taking some time off from all three and a half jobs. I am relaxed, decompressed and ready to crush my goals in two thousand and twenty one. Seems like a lot of people are more optimistic and ready to get back to life. I checked in with my Day job every four days to minimize e-mails and help where needed. I am checking in with my second job after this post am on track with job three. I was able to hit all of my goals by the first week in December and could afford to take a little time off to plan and find efficiencies to utilize in the New Year. I have set aside some time each month for family, goal review, and researching new streams. I have three picked out that I should be able to implement by the end of the summer.

The Washington  deletion of redskins without a replacement name was kind of silly. I loved Chief Wahoo on the Indian's baseball jersey. So much, in fact, I ordered the baseball jersey before they took his image off. Double win now that they are taking the name off as well. I have talked to all of my Blackhawks fans and they seem to think that the Blackhawks emblem is sacred and will last through all of this. I have ordered a Blackhawks jersey just in case-seems the writing is on the wall. I have an old Milwaukee Braves jersey. I would think that the Braves name will have to be deleted as well. I understand both sides of the story but I think that it is a very small percentage of native americans that care. I have read that the reservations get a large sum of cash in subsidies for names pertaining to indians.

Where are all the naysayers from several months ago-those that said this was just like the yearly flu? As of today, the number of deaths from the Corona Virus have exceeded three hundred thousand. The deadliest flu seasons were in nineteen sixty seven when about one hundred thousand Americans died, nineteen fifty seven when roughly one hundred and sixteen thousand died and the American (erroneously called Spanish) flu of nineteen eighteen counted roughly six hundred and seventy five thousand deaths over four years (per Reuters). No statistics on how many of the deaths could be attributed to following role models in the current administration, that refused to wear masks and/or fell prey to the supposed 'fake' news propaganda.

Joker and Harley Quinn for sure. They had to work in order to get to their positions. Nothing was handed to them. And they did it by themselves-no side kicks necessary. No fancy Butlers, mansions or awesome vehicles. They had to recruit followers and they managed to get more people working for them than just one side kick. Joker would be my choice out of the two as he lives during social unrest and economic disparity-kind of like modern day America. I root for the underdog who has been wronged by society (repeatedly). Getting lost in the system, at the mercy of a society that cares for no one but themselves, denied access to mental health medications, and repeatedly abused yet rising above it all with anger versus two silver spoon 'heros' that add to the abuse the Joker receives. Yep, Joker is the winner here.

Off-Topic / Veto Proof Bill
« on: December 11, 2020, 01:55:57 pm »Message ID: 1346669
A bill is considered veto proof if a two thirds vote in the house and senate is achieved. A sweeping defense bill was passed by the senate on December eleventh with a vote of eighty four to thirteen. The impeached, soon to be ex, president had promised to veto this bill because it did not include a repeal of Section 230/law that shields internet companies from what is posted on their websites. Just hours before the vote, donald said that he hoped the Republicans would vote against this act "which I will Veto". Tough month for the lad as he loses the election to Biden over and over with each new vote count and more than fourty eight out of fifty cases have been rejected or dropped. The supreme court has stated that "voters, not lawyers, choose the president".

Awarded to Joe Biden and Kamala Harris leaving donald unusually quite given this, his second loss to Biden. The magazine acknowledged that the two have got quite a challenge ahead of them as they try to repair "the fracture in society, the division that has been stoked by trump and his presidency" per Time magazine, bringing the pandemic under control and working on decreasing racial justice per Time magazine. Biden/Harris represents something historic (per Time) beating three other finalists: Dr. Anthony Fauci, the racial justice movement and "and donald trump, who lost the White House race". Time's editor in chief stated the win was "for changing the American Story, for showing that the forces of empathy are greater than the furies of division, for sharing a vision of healing in a grieving world".

Off-Topic / New title awarded

to donald trump. German Magazine Der Spiegel has bestowed, upon the impeached one, the title of "The Loser of the Year". This award was given for: refusal to take responsibility in the worst crisis the country has suffered for one hundred years; complicity in the deaths of numerous Americans; politicizing and playing down the pandemic; complete weakness driven by a disdain for science and expertise; blaming Antifa for violence while setting himself apart from right-wing extremist militias; being impeached (of course);unfounded  dismissal of numerous officials; division of the country not as a by product but as a goal; refusal to accept election defeat (even after eight plus supreme court decisions); and his presidency ending as it began-without decency and without dignity. Not quite the Nobel prize that he and Putin were nominated for (and Obama won).

43 days to go.  The impeached one's appeals have all been rejected due to a lack of evidence, recounts have yielded more votes for the impeached one's replacement, and today marks the last day for any legal action yet there are still some that stick to the belief that somehow the impeached one still has a chance. Could it be that he fights so hard due to all of the shenanigans he used to get into office? Hidden payments to a playboy bunny and pornographic star so they would keep quiet and the religious right would support his bid for presidency? Alleged Russian election interference with him ending up as president? Stating higher asset values in order to procure loans and lower asset values in order to pay less in taxes? Avoidance of the emoluments lawsuit, tax evasion law suit, and sexual harassment law suits (to name a few)? Down playing the CoVid virus (failing to lead, criticizing remedies) that is currently producing more death than the 1918 flu? Hostile sexism? Playing down his diminutive view of women ("Grab'm by the...")? His racism acknowledgement? Calling for a ban on all Muslims wishing to enter the U.S. in 2015? Generalizing mexican immigrants as "criminals and rapists"? Insulting the Chinese by labeling covid as the "Kung-Flu"? His affront on Black Americans: a court loss over his refusal to rent to Black tenants; Stating that there were "many fine people" among white supremacists in 2017; stating that all people from Haiti have aids and should return to their huts; referencing Haiti and Africa as sh#tho#e countries. With all of this negativity, the impeached one wonders how he lost the election? Thank Heaven we have avoided what could have been the impeached dictator's World War II. Kind of tells us that there are still a majority of positive, loving people in this country and hope that our Nation can be repaired.

A truly Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to one and all! It has been a tough year for many and your merriment is appreciated. Hopefully the impeached one has his stocking filled with the realization that he has lost and the country can move on. I have not looked it up but I would hope that a presidential pardon can not extinguish his pre-presidential crimes. I am also hopeful that bankruptcy cannot be used to get rid of debts created by his campaigning. His tab was up to  one point eight million dollars of unpaid campaign debt in April of this year. One can only imagine what that has jumped to and given his bankruptcy track record, it is not hard to imagine what will happen to that debt. How soon till he starts screwing around on Melania-again?

o travel for the Christmas/New Year Holidays. This will be the first time since I was a teenager and I am so happy! We went to the mountains for Thanksgiving which was great but I look forward to just lounging around the house. We have relatives/friends coming in from Wisconsin, Georgia and Illinois for Christmas. I think we will be the Christmas host house from now on. My mother is in a memory care unit about a mile from our home and I would like to get our little group to do some Christmas Carols outside my mother's window just to help her cope with the assisted living quarantine. It appears that the pandemic is poised to beat the 1918 American/Spanish flu and Caroling seems to be the best way to keep from exposing my mother.

I never put up my decorations prior to Thanksgiving even though I should take advantage of the nicer weather while it is in town (Colorado). The weather was nice yesterday (November thirtieth) and I had just gotten back from Thanksgiving in the Mountains with my family so I spent three and a half hours decorating one tree in my front yard. I also picked up a Christmas tree from Costco which was good timing because there were only six left for the season (although I could have gone to five other Costco's located within a thirty minutes drive). I let the branches drop for twenty four hours and will move it inside this evening. We will be purchasing two additional potted trees for decoration and plant them in the spring. We always like to double what has been taken. We will use the Costco tree for fire wood after it has dried out anough.
