1. Just love how Biden is calmly

moving forward.

I need to help - help their admin; help protect democracy. I'm hoping to find some really good solid, concrete information on how to do this.

I'm old and part-time retired with some energy and a STRONG commitment!

Put me to USE!!!

11. Get a solid grounding in civics, if you don't already

have it, then volunteer to teach it to others.

15. Wow, that's perfect!

Democratic Clubs, scouts, library talks, civic and service club luncheons. Put yourself out there ( after the pandemic. Use this time to prepare) and you'll be in demand! You are needed!

17. Yes! I need some direction -

what to do with my energy and commitment!

I've tried confontronting trumpers; it doesn't work. We have to direct this at people who are willing to learn!

Maybe I can volunteer at the local school?

18. Many organizations are desperate for speakers.

And this will be a hot topic! I just attended a webinar on the topic of electoral law, myself. Many lawyers and some political scientists. You are qualified for this. After you develop a basic civics speech, you could develop a topical speech based on you know what. Once clubs start meeting again, get in touch with local ones!

4. He didn't say. I'm searching Twitter trying to find out. May be pandemic related but my

mind went first to Trump's coup.

6. Mine too

but the list of states doesn't seem indicative of that specific concern. Maybe he thinks these are the ones he feels like he could work with best (at least in terms of Republicans)?

10. I Believe This is the Conference Call Cuomo Mentioned the Other Day

I think he is the current chair of the governor's group and may have instigated the call in that role. I'm disappointed the list is so short. I got the impression that covid response is the primary agenda item.

13. I'm sure he's going to talk to all governors. He just doesn't want 50 people at once on Zoom.

10 is already a room-full.
