Hmmm - what to say.
I do like Biden’s cabinet nominations and his point that the Justice Dept is not there to protect him but rather to protect the Constitution and laws of the country. Can the damage done by the current Justice dept and the Education, EPA, Interior, Homeland Security, HHS etc, cabinet secretaries all be reversed? More hope with a Democratic Senate now.
I am hating that Pence and McConnell are getting praise for the one time they stood up to Trump’s insanity but at least they did. There was one death due to violence during the insurrection that Trump kicked off and a second now that a Capitol police officer died as a result of injuries from assault during it. I won’t blame him for the 3 deaths from medical emergencies but they might not have happened if their was no riot. Will he be held to account in any way?
And yesterday a new record of more than 4,111 residents of the US dying from COVID-19. In just December 140,000 more jobs were lost. Even the Murdoch controlled WSJ has called for Trump to resign.
All the officials of Trump administration are complicit in enabling this awful and deadly administration. And resigning in less than 2 weeks before the administration ends isn’t an act of conscience or courage. It is rats jumping a sinking ship.
Not that I have strong feelings about the situation lol.
So no thankful Thursday today but on the personal front things were more positive. We were finally able to return borrowed medical equipment to the HOA office, dropped off a bunch of food our dog won’t eat anymore at the animal shelter, and returned the puzzles and games a friend lent for our Christmas. The club’s Little Free Library if getting lots of use in its new location. We made our favorite turkey and bean chili for dinner and added a salad. Everyone in our little circle is still COVID free although other serious health problems are afflicting some as is the usual case in life.
How are you and your circle doing?
