The law and the processes are on our side.

Trump can waste his time with whipping his tribe into a froth over the next 72 days, but at the end of it, he will be leaving the WH.

Understanding this might help:

Ways to react to a tantrum -

1. What do you say when a child has a tantrum?
"I understand why you're upset."
Sometimes empathy works to calm a tantrum. Depending on your child's age, you can tell them a story about a time you got frustrated. This also works to distract your kiddo from what they were upset about in the first place.

2. Should you ignore toddler tantrums?
Ignoring usually helps stop behaviors that your child is using to get your attention. This includes behaviors like throwing tantrums, whining, and interrupting. When you are ignoring, you do not look at your child or talk to him. Ignore all protests or excuses to get your attention.

Biden may not be able to move into the WH for a while:

Considering all the COVID cases coming out of the WH, there needs to be some serious decontamination:

Virus that causes Covid-19 can survive up to 28 days on surfaces, scientists find

Researchers find Sars-CoV-2 survives longer at lower temperatures and lasts 10 days longer than influenza on some surfaces

Australian scientists have found that the virus that causes Covid-19 can survive for up to 28 days on surfaces such as the glass on mobile phones, stainless steel, vinyl and paper banknotes.

The national science agency, the CSIRO, said the research undertaken at the Australian Centre for Disease Preparedness (ACDP) in Geelong also found that Sars-CoV-2 survived longer at lower temperatures.

It said in a statement the virus survived longer on paper banknotes than on plastic banknotes and lasted longer on smooth surfaces rather than porous surfaces such as cotton.

However, the experiment was done in a dark area which negates the effects of UV light. Peter Collignon, a professor of infectious diseases at the Australian National University, said this is known to reduce the life of the virus on surfaces.

ďIt is a factor, and thatís why the outside is probably again safer than inside because UV light is there and the virus can be inactivated on playgrounds and things in the sunshine,Ē he said.



Transcript of Joe's speech tonight.

My fellow Americans, the people of this nation have spoken.

They have delivered us a clear victory. A convincing victory. A victory for ďWe the People.Ē

We have won with the most votes ever cast for a presidential ticket in the history of this nation -- 74 million.

I am humbled by the trust and confidence you have placed in me.

I pledge to be a President who seeks not to divide, but to unify. Who doesnít see Red and Blue states, but a United States. And who will work with all my heart to win the confidence of the whole people.

For that is what America is about: The people. And that is what our Administration will be about.

I sought this office to restore the soul of America. To rebuild the backbone of the nation -- the middle class. To make America respected around the world again and to unite us here at home.

It is the honor of my lifetime that so many millions of Americans have voted for this vision. And now the work of making this vision real is the task of our time.

As I said many times before, Iím Jillís husband. I would not be here without the love and tireless support of my wife, Jill, Hunter, Ashley, all of our grandchildren and their spouses, and all our family. They are my heart.

Jillís a mom -- a military mom -- and an educator. She has dedicated her life to education, but teaching isnít just what she does -- itís who she is. For Americaís educators, this is a great day: Youíre going to have one of your own in the White House, and Jill is going to make a great First Lady.

And I will be honored to be serving with a fantastic vice president -- Kamala Harris -- who will make history as the first woman, first Black woman, first woman of South Asian descent, and first daughter of immigrants ever elected to national office in this country.

Itís long overdue, and weíre reminded tonight of all those who fought so hard for so many years to make this happen. But once again, America has bent the arc of the moral universe towards justice.

Kamala, Doug -- like it or not -- youíre family. Youíve become honorary Bidens.

To all those who volunteered, worked the polls, local election officials -- you deserve a special thanks from this nation. To my campaign team, to all the volunteers, to all those who gave so much of themselves to make this moment possible, I thank you for everything. And to all those who supported us: I am proud of the campaign we built and ran. I am proud of the coalition we built, the broadest and most diverse in history.

Democrats and Republicans and Independents. Progressives, moderates and conservatives. Young and old. Urban, suburban and rural. Gay, straight, transgender. White. Latino. Asian. Native American.

And especially for those moments when this campaign was at its lowest -- the African American community.

I said from the outset I wanted a campaign that represented America, and I think we did that.

And to those who voted for President Trump, I understand your disappointment tonight. Iíve lost a couple of elections myself.

But now, letís give each other a chance. Itís time to put away the harsh rhetoric. To lower the temperature. To see each other again. To listen to each other again. To make progress, we must stop treating our opponents as our enemy. We are not enemies. We are Americans.

The Bible tells us that to everything there is a season -- a time to build, a time to reap, a time to sow. And a time to heal.

This is that time for America. A time to heal.

Now that the campaign is over -- what is the peopleís will? What is our mandate?

I believe it is this: Americans have called on us to marshal the forces of decency and the forces of fairness. To marshal the forces of science and the forces of hope in the great battles of our time.

The battle to control the virus. The battle to build prosperity. The battle to secure your familyís health care. The battle to achieve racial justice and root out systemic racism in this country. The battle to save the climate. The battle to restore decency, defend democracy, and give everybody in this country a fair shot.

Our work begins with getting COVID under control.

We cannot repair our economy, restore our vitality, or relish lifeís most precious moments -- hugging a grandchild, birthdays, weddings, graduations, all the moments that matter most to us -- until we get this virus under control.

On Monday, I will name a group of leading scientists and experts as Transition Advisors to help take the Biden-Harris COVID plan and convert it into an action blueprint that starts on January 20th, 2021.

That plan will be built on a bedrock of science. It will be constructed out of compassion, empathy, and concern. I will spare no effort -- or commitment -- to turn this pandemic around.

I ran as a proud Democrat. I will now be an American president. I will work as hard for those who didnít vote for me -- as I will for those who did.

Let this grim era of demonization in America begin to end -- here and now.

The refusal of Democrats and Republicans to cooperate with one another is not due to some mysterious force beyond our control. Itís a decision. Itís a choice we make.

And if we can decide not to cooperate, then we can decide to cooperate. And I believe that is part of the mandate from the American people. They want us to cooperate.

Thatís the choice Iíll make. And I call on the Congress -- Democrats and Republicans alike -- to make that choice with me.

Americaís story is about the slow, yet steady widening of opportunity. Make no mistake: Too many dreams have been deferred for too long. We must make the promise of the country real for everybody -- no matter their race, their identity, their ethnicity, their faith.

America has always been shaped by inflection points -- by moments in time where weíve made hard decisions about who we are and what we want to be.

Lincoln in 1860 -- coming to save the Union. FDR in 1932 -- promising a beleaguered country a New Deal. JFK in 1960 -- pledging a New Frontier.

And twelve years ago -- when Barack Obama made history -- and told us, ďYes, we can.Ē

We stand again at an inflection point. We have the opportunity to defeat despair and to build a nation of prosperity and purpose. We can do it. I know we can.

Iíve long talked about the battle for the soul of America. Now we must restore the soul of America.

Our nation is shaped by the constant battle between our better angels and our darkest impulses. It is time for our better angels to prevail.

Tonight, the whole world is watching. I believe at our best America is a beacon for the globe. And we lead not by the example of our power, but by the power of our example.

Iíve always believed we can define America in one word: Possibilities.

That in America everyone should be given the opportunity to go as far as their dreams and God-given ability will take them.

You see, I believe in the possibility of this country. Weíre always looking ahead. Ahead to an America thatís freer and more just. Ahead to an America that creates jobs with dignity and respect. Ahead to an America that cures disease -- like cancer and Alzheimers. Ahead to an America that never leaves anyone behind. Ahead to an America that never gives up.

This is a great nation. And we are a good people. This is the United States of America. And there has never been anything we havenít been able to do when weíve done it together.

In the last days of the campaign, Iíve been thinking about a hymn that means a lot to me and to my family. It captures the faith that sustains me and which I believe sustains America.

And I hope it can provide some comfort and solace to the more than 230,000 families who have lost a loved one to this terrible virus this year. My heart goes out to each and every one of you.

ďAnd He will raise you up on eagle's wings,
Bear you on the breath of dawn,
Make you to shine like the sun,
And hold you in the palm of His Hand.Ē

And now, together -- on eagleís wings -- we embark on the work that God and history have called upon us to do.

With full hearts and steady hands, with faith in America and in each other, with a love of country -- and a thirst for justice -- let us be the nation that we know we can be.

A nation united. A nation strengthened. A nation healed.

God bless you. And may God protect our troops.

Joe Biden

How about Preet Bharara for AG?

The American People Finished the Work that the Senate Refused to Do:

and REMOVED him from office!!

America Prevails.

I just drove all through my small town honking my horn....

People looked at me like I was nuts!!

I don't fucking care!!!!

There is one person, possibly more than anyone else, who we need to thank

for Joeís forthcoming victory - Rep. James Clyburn, for his endorsement of Joe Biden in the SC primary.

Everything has evolved from that moment.

Thank you, sir!

Car honking across America when Joe goes over the top...

...in honor of his car rallies!!!

Let's do it!!

Philadelphia - Birthplace of American Democracy....

PA SHOULD be the state that puts Biden over the top!

Is the time that appears on posts

from the respective time zone of the poster, or from the time zone where DU is located (wherever that is...), or something else?

I like to know how current the information is.....
