Doesn't this emoji

Look like Lindsey Graham?

Matt Gaetz as a role model

from the internet:
If you feel you have not achieved as much success as your peers, just keep trying. Matt Gaetz is now a Congressman, and he didn't get his first High School girlfriend until he was in his 40's.

If we called Barack's health care plan "Obamacare"

Shouldn't we call the Corona pandemic "Trump Don't Care"?

Observation on governance

President Biden has listed our four current priority issues:
Covid, the Economy, Climate, and Racism/Equality.
While the Democrats were passing a bill to deal with the first two emergencies, the Republicans were obsessed with Dr Seuss and gender issues involving a plastic potato.
While one party was governing, the other was showing that they have nothing to offer.

Is a secret ballot at the end of the Impeachment trial no longer possible?

A few weeks ago, there was speculation that a majority vote (50 Dems and the VP) could order that the final vote be by secret ballot. Several articles pointed out that this win for the Dems could also be a boon for the GOP, since they could remove Trump from future contention while not having to acknowledge their individual vote. Some articles even speculated that a genuine secret vote could get 80 plus votes, meaning a majority of the R's.
I haven't heard any speculation on this since the trial began, so my assumption is that this would have needed to be in the original agreement on conducting the proceedings.
Anyone have any ideas if this could still be a possibility, albeit very much a long-shot?

Question about Impeachment trial

Can’t find a google answer: Is the Senate going to skip Saturday as requested by one of Trump’s lawyers who says he is an Orthodox Jew and can’t work from sundown Friday through Saturday?

I know they’re saying now that the trial will last at least till Monday.

I tried to defend Trump on a social media site

The post had his picture with the usual "Best President Ever" caption, and asked people not to post anything derogatory without admitting to some of the good he had accomplished. My post:

All he did was send a mob to try to kill Congress. And they took him off Twitter just as he was getting ready to post his
taxes and his beautiful healthcare plan (remember, the one he was going to release the afternoon of his inauguration?). He did
try to build a wall and harass black and brown people. Promises made, promises kept, country trashed.

New Georgia Senators

I've seen several posts about when we can expect the two new Senators to be sworn in.
GA Sec of State has until January 22 to certify the results. Two points: He can do it before then; and both races ended up outside the 1/2% margin for automatic recount.

Once he certifies, they can be sworn in right away.
So, since the House and Senate have adjourned until the 19th, they likely could be ready to take their seats once the new President is sworn in.

Then peace will guide the planets, and love will steer the stars......

2016: GOP had Trump, House and Senate

And in just 4 years, the world’s greatest deal-maker, who said we would get tired of winning, has lost every bit of it, and left the Republican Party a fetid, burning mess.

If I were in his office, I would be crying and saying, “Sir, thank you Sir, only you could have done this.”

My team lost tonight

Got beat 41-18.
Texted my son about it. His response:

I don’t think we lost. We should appeal several of the calls and ask the SEC to reverse the outcome. We can still win this game.
