So far, so good. I have only one criticism so far: Regarding Biden's economy/virus program, the stimulus checks should not be sent to everyone. They should be dependent upon need.

Not sure if anyone else noticed but Biden had the largest well-wishing inauguration crowd ever in the history of inauguration crowds.

Stretched all the way across the reflecting pool, past the Washington Monument, all the way to the Golden Gate Bridge.

Well if so, count me on the mailing list if you want my vote next time. Of course we all have to pay ourselves back. So the only thing it stimulates is my blood pressure and heart rate.

Re: Reflections In The Tidal Basin
I don't watch TV, for the while anyway, but I ran a Google search for Steve Cohen of Tennessee. Only congressman I searched in a while. He has lots of crazy partisan crap, almost all the time. Even moderate Democrats can package conspiracy theories, but the catch is to make sure it is aimed at a prominent Republican of the moment.

It seems he had some dirt:

He seemed to say that the National Guard is all white male, thus 80 percent supporting Trump. He wasn't finished. He said the Guardsmen would turn arms against Biden during his inauguration.

Actually, the guard is 30 percent minority and 17 percent female. Roughly 55 percent white male.

Cohen likes to brag about his black wife, and he even attempted to become the first white member of the Congressional Black Caucus . Many feel that he does this to keep his job. His district got redrawn in 2012, and it went from majority white to 80 percent black. He won in 2002 due to blacks splitting the Democratic primary vote, while whites supported him.

I can't help but smile. It's like the neighborhood bully got thrown out of his house, and the nice grandpa next door was put in charge of the neighborhood in his place. Who thought someone normal would be such a ray of light?

Re: Grandpa Joe
The part I'm having to get used to is having a president who speaks in complete sentences with a discernable train of thought.

It's refreshing.

There was an anti-impeachment group created around 1998.
Called, appropriately enough, MoveOn.org .

We all need to scream MOVE ON from the rooftops.

Perhaps, a MoveOnFINALLY.org needs a creation, since extreme necessity is the muther f×××er of invention.

Don't let a bunch of the same stupid things happen in 2021 that happened in that bygone era of 2020.

Let us leave all idiocy behind. Idiots can have idiotic thoughts & feelings, but they don't need to ruin the momentum of the moment, by sinking this entire nation into a pathetic idiocracy. The post Jan 20 impeachment crowd runs the risk of turning Trump's idiotic administration, of 2017 to 2021, into a worse congressional spectacle for the present and future.

If idiocy was a crime, then impeachment supporters could take our nation into a more criminally moronic direction than even the endless misdemeanors of the past 4 Trump years, and thus commit full fledged stupidity felonies - for which the whole nation would have to suffer.

Move On! Get to work on the nation's business.

Re: There was an anti-impeachment group created around 1998.
Insurrection is no mere misdemeanor.

Until there is a complete official record of the crime and the judgement of the Senate for his seditionist act, there can be no MOVE ON.

Someone just shot your dog. Deliberately. Just to be ugly.
You just accept this and MOVE ON?

5 people died directly from his sedition. How does that compare to your dog?

In addition to your dead dog, he invaded your house, threatened your wife and kids, and intended to cut your balls off but was stopped by a cop.

You begin to understand the intensity of the crimes committed against the nation here?

No! Not this man. Not this crime.

No MOVE ON until responsibility, accountability and requital are achieved to the satisfaction of the people.

Show me your best quote that Trump called for insurrection.

I just see stupid political babble, so far.

( The nation's break in was a weak attempt at insurrection, granted)

Ok, my head is in a different place.

Is this supposed to be racist or funny? I see the winkie face but that didn't help my cognition any.

And don't forget that Democrats have been impeaching Trump for years.

So this is already pain purdue.

Old and old. Painful for the nation, enough.

Re: There was an anti-impeachment group created around 1998.
I watched it live stream.

Make all the excuses, all the twisted syntax and word tortures to absolve the crime. Erect your mirrors and blow your smoke.

Won't work. His intent was quite clear. I saw it. I heard it. Cutely couched in cuddly prose to "go visit our good friends up on the hill".

You cannot blind those of us who witnessed it. Your revisionist attempts are rejected.

And, Lamark, you don't want to be on the devil's side of this. It looks real bad intellectually. Even McConnell admitted Trump instigated the insurrection. The reality, the facts, are against you.

Because he's been a criminal for years. No surprise there.

Old and old. Painful for the nation, enough.

Sedition and fomenting insurrection are new crimes to a presidency. The pain is all the faked contrition the Trumpettes are feeling scratching and begging for "unity", "togetherness" and "healing" after getting caught putting a noose around the Constitution's neck.

BULLSHIT!

Corruption and treason far beyond anything ever seen before in this country have been perpetrated by Trump and his enablers and minions for the last 4 years. Their incompetence and intentional mishandling of the pandemic caused 400,000 deaths, so far. They spent months after the election priming the mob to an armed insurrection to overthrow our government.

Until there is an accounting with Trump and all of his fellow insurrectionists in the US Congress, first in impeachment and then in criminal courts there will be no moving on about this issue.

There is no fucking bigger crime a president can commit, you silly twit!
