The GOP has become the WGPP...The White Grievance Pity Party

How the GOP has fallen. They went from a proud fiscal conservative party to a bunch of white nationalists whining and crying about "stolen" elections and rallies of riled up rubes threatening their own party officials for not going along with their insane conspiracies spurred on by the biggest baby man ever to occupy the White House.

The GOP really doesn't deserve any sympathy. They marched down this path with both eyes wide open and knowing full well where they were headed and went there anyway. Screw them and their cadre of rubes and clowns.

I'm done with their pity party and any of their concerns. If they are willing to burn down democracy itself to get what they want, then we should not cut them any slack. They are extremists at best, terrorists at worst. We should not tolerate them in the public square nor tolerate their opinions. I'm just done with them.

The adults are back in charge. Time to dole out some tough love. You can't give in to bullies.

No news updates on Hunter Biden since the election

And I was following the developments so closely and all. Now what am I going to do for my Hunter Biden scandal news? Fox won't mention him. Trump won't mention him. Rudy Giuliani seems occupied elsewhere. It's not fair to get me all excited about the biggest news story of the century and then bupkis. I beginning to think that there is a cover-up going on. Oh, Joe Biden, you wascully wabbit. Well played my friend, well played.

Health Care workers should refuse to show up in red states that bar masks mandates

It's time to take the fight to Republican governors. If they won't do anything to abate the spread of COVID for purely political reasons, then they do not deserve health care workers that put themselves in danger. Doctors, nurses, ambulance drives, and all the health care frontline personnel should travel to places where the governors are actually being responsible until the pandemic ends. Enough is enough. Time to drive home the point that we have the ability to fight this disease but we shouldn't placate the political whims of irresponsible politicians.

In all fairness to Lindsey Graham...

...he can hardly be blamed for contacting Brad Raffensperger the Republican Secretary of State in Georgia to ask him to commit election fraud. The incalculable odds of actually running into an honest Republican in the State of Georgia have to be astronomically small if not all but impossible.

Graham was just playing the odds and somehow found an actual honest Republican in a state where the two current Republican Senators Perdue and Loeffler have called for Raffensperger to resign for basically not disenfranchising enough Democrats for Trump to win the state, while Loeffler and her husband were accused of insider trading related to her early briefings on the COVID-19 pandemic.

So in all fairness to Graham, what are the odds of accidentally running into an honest Republican in Georgia. Maybe someone here from Georgia knows one other than Raffensperger?

The economy as we knew it might be over, Fed Chairman says

The economy as we knew it might be over, Fed Chairman says
By Anneken Tappe, CNN Business

Updated 4:57 PM ET, Thu November 12, 2020

New York (CNN Business)The Covid-19 pandemic brought the economy to a screeching halt, and while it has started its long road to recovery, the economy we knew is probably a thing of the past, said Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell on Thursday.

"We're recovering, but to a different economy," Powell said during a virtual panel discussion at the European Central Bank's Forum on Central Banking.
The pandemic has accelerated existing trends in the economy and society, including the increasing use of technology, telework and automation, he said. This will have lasting effects on how people live and work.
While technological advances are generally positive for societies over the long term, Powell said, on a short-term basis they create disruption, and as the market adjusts to the new normal the pain isn't shared evenly.

Four years ago, it seemed like everything was just awful.

My spouse and I work at a large university in a blue state. Four years ago, we were suffering under the leadership of a really horrible university president, a governor that was really, really terrible, and then Trump was elected. It seemed like crazy was coming out of the woodwork at the time.

I remember thinking that the only thing that was going to make any of this better was to see these three figures out of our lives forever. Within a year or so, the university president resigned in disgrace under a cloud of corruption. I thought to myself, one down and two to go. The 2018 election season handed our one-term governor a handy defeat. The state elected a progressive governor and all I could think was, two down, one to go.

On Saturday, the third domino finally fell. It took over four years, but all three are finally gone, replaced with people I respect. It just goes to show you that nothing is forever and all you have to do is hang in there and better days will come around. Remember this in 2024.

Glorious Election Day in Illinois with Governor Pritzker declaring November 3rd a State Holiday

Months ago, Gov. JB Pritzker declared that today would be a State Holiday. Voting is so easy and relaxed although many of us voted early anyway. It's like a party to celebrate democracy across the entire state. If you need an example of the opposite of voter suppression, Illinois is your best bet. Thank you Governor Pritzker! This could be the beginning of a tradition in Illinois. We already have our bottle of champagne chilling in the fridge.

What song should be blaring as the Trumps board Marine One for the last time on 01/20/21?

I say....

Lawyers, Guns and Money
Warren Zevon

I went home with a waitress the way I always do
How was I to know she was with the russians, too?

I was gambling in havana, I took a little risk
Send lawyers, guns, and money
Dad, get me out of this, hiyah!

An innocent bystander
Somehow I got stuck between a rock and a hard place
And I'm down on my luck
Yes, I'm down on my luck
Well, I'm down on my luck

I'm hiding in honduras, I'm a desperate man
Send lawyers, guns, and money
The shit has hit the fan

Send lawyers, guns, and money
Send lawyers, guns, and money

Send lawyers, guns, and money, hiyah!
Send lawyers, guns, and money, ow!

If everything Christians believe about God is true, then God has to be greatest recycler

in the universe.

First time poster in this area of DU:

Never mind the recycling that occurs in nature and the greater universe. The evidence of that is well-known and it has been happening forever and always will be happening at least on a time scale that matters to us, and God did create the universe. If the soul is real, as Christians believe, then it is created by God and given human form at some point in the reproduction process. Some believe it to be upon conception while others believe the soul is given at a later point. Either way, the souls is God-given and ultimately when the body dies, the soul returns to God completing the cycle of life and death. Whether souls are then reused, is less documented in scripture but some believe that once heaven has been reached, the soul remains their as some kind of blessed being for eternity. The point is that nothing is wasted in the process. God is a recycler. Shouldn't we be like God?

The single biggest mistake the CDC made was telling Republicans that masks protect others

That was never going to be an effective strategy when it comes to Republicans. They have never cared about anyone but themselves and they never will. Next pandemic, there will be "good lies".
