        Things like this, and quite frankly, the make up of my own family, help me to remember not to hate all white people when it is very hard not to do so.

    Republicans are crying fraud because this is another way to disenfranchise non-white voters, especially those who are Black. Minority voters gave the con man an ass whopping in Philadelphia and Detroit in particular, and the Navajo delivered victory in Arizona, while Latinos of various sub groups delivered it in NV. Now Georgia, with Atlanta and surrounding areas in the shadow of that arch racist monument, Stone Mountain, has delivered the coup de grace. The hand recount is going to deliver the same results and no matter what the republicans say or do not say, that con man has finally met is Waterloo and Biden/Harris are the winners with a resounding mandate.

      For all that the slow counts get on our nerves, the best thing is that it is terrifying him. His every waking thought is consumed with trying to find a way out like he has so many times in the past. His hubris has led to his own destruction and hopefully, that of those who aided him in all of the mayhem and death of the past 4 years. Karma has finally come calling.

    I do not know why everyone thinks they can bully President Biden and Madam Vice President Harris into making decisions which are going to undermine the Dem Party and the USA.

    Everyone is making a demand even though they know how unrealistic their demands are.

    There is a different between making a suggestion and making demands with ultimatums. One is ignored, another is put into consideration.

    I am just going to wait for the announcements to be made.

      One of the best things about our team is that they know all of the ends and outs of Congress; Joe in particular, knows where the bodies are buried and the skeletons closeted. He has worked with and against these old bulls for decades and Kamala did not let grass grow under her feet when she was in the Senate. The upstarts in the so-called Squad are not the equals of either of them. Nancy Smash let the little ones play but she brought them to heel when she needed to. Everything for now is sound and fury and people trying to build their profile. Joe and Kamala got this, they know who brought them to the dance, and will act accordingly.

      “There is a different between making a suggestion and making demands with ultimatums. One is ignored, another is put into consideration. ”

      I so agree, Linda.

      Sometimes it seems that people’s celebrity goes to their head and that it gives them license to make demands. Suggestions can lead to a dialogue that could result in compromise. .. PROGRESS. Isn’t that what progressives are supposed to be about?

        Too many are addicted to making headlines – no matter what kind, good or bad, they love the focus being on them.

      This needs to be main lined; too many democrats with hair on fire. I get it, we are traumatized from the shit of the past 4 years, but we have a team that we pushed toward victory against the odds. Believe in what we have done and that it is unassailable. Listen to Joe and act like him.
      Several articles (Washington Post for one) and various Twitter threads go over all of the fears that many have voiced and that the lying Repubs. put out and show how they will not and cannot happen. Knowledge can help build confidence. Lastly, if Joe is not worried, we should not be.

    A poem I got from Oboomer…I was just trying to stay alive.

    ‘In Waters Deep’

    In ocean wastes no poppies blow,

    No crosses stand in ordered row,

    There young hearts sleep … beneath the wave …

    The spirited, the good, the brave,

    But stars a constant vigil keep,

    For them who lie beneath the deep.

    ‘Tis true you cannot kneel in prayer

    On certain spot and think, “He’s there.”

    But you can to the ocean go …

    See whitecaps marching row on row;

    Know one for him will always ride …

    In and out … with every tide.

    And when your span of life is passed,

    He’ll meet you at the “Captain’s Mast.”

    And they who mourn on distant shore

    For Sailors who’ll come home no more,

    Can dry their tears and pray for these

    Who rest beneath the heaving seas …

    For stars that shine and winds that blow

    And white caps marching row on row.

    And they can never lonely be

    For when they lived … they chose the sea.

    The poem is called ‘In Waters Deep,’ and was written by Eileen Mahoney

    To those of you who are reading or hearing things that cause you worry or concern, stop and remember – we have Constitutional Attorney/Former President Barack Obama in our corner. He plays Chess while the other fools are playing Checkers with broken pieces.

    We Got This!

    We need to make sure that we win Both seats in Georgia so we can make Turtle a Minority Leader in the Senate.

    Stay Focused People 😎

    Just occurred to me that if President Biden decides that he must get intelligence that he is being denied by the one-term loser in chief, he could call get the same from President Obama. I am saying this because I recall that a former president can continue to get intelligence as long as he wants it.

    BEWARE MATES… while we worry about elections and Covid-19, our home grown terrorist, Qanon, Proud Boys, and other “miltias” are prepping for a civil war.
    Be careful in your travels.
