    Meanwhile, in wacoland…

    The mayor of a town in Tennessee lowered the U.S. flag to half-staff before Joe Biden’s inauguration on Wednesday, saying he was mourning the “loss of freedoms” he believed a Democratic administration would herald.

    In a message posted on Facebook, Mayor Robert T. Keeton III said: “The Town of Bruceton grieves for our Republic and our loss of freedoms.

      Good Morning, TOD Family!!! Thank you Nerdy for continuing to give us this place to come…over the past four years, to survive. But this is also the place where we can celebrate that Democracy has Prevailed!!!

      I’m still basking in the good feeling and relief that yesterday’s inauguration brought.

      Past inaugurations were day long events with a lot of pomp, pageantry, and parties. But honestly, I liked the way the events were planned for yesterday’s inauguration. It was more inclusive and gave President Biden and Vice President Harris more flexibility. They were actually able to do some work. DAY ONE MEANT DAY ONE!!!!

      This wasn’t supposed to be a reply. For some reason my comments are sometimes showing up where I don’t intend it to. I’m sure it’s user error, but…..oh well.

    Senator Reverend Warnock: “Sees ‘Continuity Of Service’ In New Role As Senator”
    “Senator Reverend Raphael Warnock talks about the civil rights milestone represented by his swearing-in as a U.S. senator and how his work at Atlanta’s Ebenezer Baptist Church ties to the issues he hopes to work on in the senate.”

      Mmmmh, I wonder, Dudette. Did any of you TOD folks send The Foundation your SmarTrip Metro pass with PBO’s picture and his 2nd Inauguration date? I look at mine and smile each time I open my ‘credit card purse’, and you know what? PBO looks back and smiles broadly at ME EVERY single time. 🙂 You can’t ask for more than that – at least I can’t.

      Greetings on this 2nd of the happier days that started yesterday! It surprises me a bit that I do actually feel lighter in spirit, despite the fact that I was not actually living directly under The Idiot’s rule.

        Hey Girl! That Metro pass sounds awesome! I would hold onto it forever. Send them a picture though. 😁

        We are still living in dark days though. Help is here, but there is so much to do! Keep the faith. Spread the faith. ✊🏾

          /grinning/ I never thought of a picture, just figured my purse would be lost without it. 😉 I also figured there’d be several of those around so they undoubtedly have one. Didn’t all you guys buy one on Inauguration Day 2013?

            Girl, I wasn’t anywhere near a place with Metro passes that day, much less one with PBO’s face on it. Atlanta’s suburbs don’t have a subway system and the buses don’t come out that far either. Maybe Pete Buttigieg can do something about that.

      That’s what I’m saying! Good news is that we saw from the period between election day and the inauguration that Joe does not listen to the know-it-alls who keep shouting trying to tell him what to do. They were wrong about calls for him to say something during the court challenges and to have a web only inauguration. Some are now admitting how wrong they were. Joe told us that he had this and he did. Same thing about Joe’s call for unity, we all have had negative shit t say about it, but what Joe meant was in his speech when he said that there was “enough of us” to unite and push the country forward. The 81 million plus who voted for him was the “enough of us” that saved our democracy. It was never about EVERYONE being on board which is an impossibility in anything. All that we need is “enough of us” to do the right thing and then drag the others along at the end. Every good and just thing in this country met a fierce opposition until the majority later accepted it as a norm and wondered what all of the fuss was about. I am “ridin’ with Biden” and will not spend any more time second guessing him.

    PE Biden and VPE Harris:
    Honored 4,000 deaths by Covid at the beautiful memorial on Tuesday:
    “To heal, we must remember. It’s hard sometimes to remember, but that’s how we heal. It’s important to do that as a nation. That’s why we’re here today. Between sundown and dusk, let us shine the lights in the darkness, along the sacred pool of reflection, and remember all whom we lost.”
    Hayes:
    “400 lights, one for every 1,000 Americans lost to Covid=19 lit up the Lincoln Memorial Reflecting Pool.
    Joe Biden paid homage to the dead, acknowledging the hardship, the toll the pandemic has taken on us all.
    Kristin Urquiza lost her father Mark to Covid last June. In his obituary she directly linked his death to politicians who refuse to accept the depth of this crisis and take appropriate measures. She set about not only memorializing his life, but helping other people to do the same for their loved ones by co-founding the group Marked By COVID.”

    • January 21, 2021 at 1:25 pm

      KRISTIN URQUIZA speaking about the memorial:
      “It was monumental. I’ve been talking to folks over the last couple of weeks.
      I organized on online vigil where we have several hundred people in attendance. And here’s the feeling for us, we need to be acknowledged. This was finally a line in the sand to the ongoing gaslighting that we’ve experienced from the Trump Administration about this virus, about its impacts, about our loved ones. And it gave me a sense of hope. But it also I think underscored that this is just a welcome beginning. We have so much more we need to do at the local, state, and federal level to ensure ongoing memorialization. But also to ensure that we really think about and encapsulate what got us here, and who has borne the greatest impact of this epidemic.”

      • January 21, 2021 at 1:31 pm

        Hayes:
        “You just said that there are 5 people in your family that have passed?”
        Urquisa:
        “There are five people in my direct family who have passed from Covid.
        All on my Dad’s side, all of Latin descent. Folks who were important to us, who were important to our community. I was on a call earlier today with a woman who launched a group called “Not Just A Black Body”. She’s a doctor. She lost both of her parents. This is not uncommon for people of color to lose multiple people in their family.”

    • January 21, 2021 at 1:28 pm

      Hayes:
      “One of the really awful aspects here is people are isolated. So all the rituals of grief that we normally deal with, a packed house sitting shiva for days, or a crowded wake…where you get the warmth of human people. All of that’s been taken from people. And then there’s the weirdness that the president (trump), the sick weirdness that it’s an insult to Donald Trump to talk about the Covid dead, it’s an insult to him, and the republican party can’t talk about it. So that when an incoming 41-year old Congressman passes away from Covid, no one says anything! And I wonder how much that weird oppressive silence has played among the people that you’re in contact with, who are in grief and in mourning.”
      Urquisa:
      “It is harmful. It is traumatic. And I think it goes back to this point.
      There’s been an ongoing gaslighting campaign to try to downplay this virus. And who has borne the mental and emotional anguish are people like myself, and our Marked By COVID community who have loved ones that have passed. And to have lived over the course of the last year in this environment, we’re going to be seeing and needing much more in the days and weeks going ahead of us, to not only attempt to unite and heal, but to really make sure that we build back better. And make right the incredible wrong forced upon our loved ones who had to make the ultimate sacrifice.”

    • January 21, 2021 at 1:29 pm

      Hayes:
      “You talk about memorialization. My understand is your view of this and the people that you’re working with who are mourning, is that it’s more than just the fact of the loss and human dignity and paying homage. There’s a nexus there between that and what society says about what happened here, and what we will tolerate and what we shouldn’t.”
      Urquisa:
      “That’s exactly right. From Day One it has been about the larger picture.
      Covid has taken so many lives, but also Covid has exposed systems of injustice that have been around that create health disparities. So that more people are getting sicker, and passing away at higher rates. So that people for example in my family, I’ve had 5 people pass away. Unfortunately that is not uncommon, that some of us are bearing this more than others. And so part of what we have been advocating and coming together is, to witness and acknowledge that we’re not alone in this. But also to call for ongoing recognition and restitution. And to ensure that these solutions are made in partnership with those people who have been impacted, to make sure our needs are met. Not just right now, but ongoing into the future.”

    • January 21, 2021 at 1:33 pm

      Urquisa:
      “And one of the things that we’re bringing to the forefront is that when we think about memorialization, when we think about how do we honor those that are lost, we need to think about how we got here and why. Who is at fault? One of the things that I’m NOT interested in is in passing on to future generations is this Christopher Columbus version of the Coronavirus. And what I mean by that is that we need to tell the unvarnished truth, bear witness to that. So that we never forget. But so that we also never make the same mistakes twice. And I think that starts with a commission such as we saw on 9/11. That means families at the decision making table and so much more.”

    It is going to be so so so very important that Democrats expand their lead in the Senate and the House come 2022.

  49. January 21, 2021 at 5:32 pm

    Already seeing that. The media keeps attacking what Biden and the Democrats are or are not doing. I have yet to hear what Republicans should be doing.

    I heard on Nicole Wallace’s program that McConnell wants to wait until February to hold the impeachment hearing…to give tRump more time to prepare. Isn’t that something that tRump’s attorneys should be asking for? Since when does a juror advocate for the defendant?
