Sad experience at the gas pump today..

I was pumping gas at our neighborhood gas station. There was an unmasked man talking to an unmasked women about getting out of the house hoping that they soon could get the kids out of the house. Then their voices dropped and the woman said "You know this virus is going to suddenly disappear without our doing anything just like Trump said." The man replied Yeah, you know it. It's a shame that so many people believe this crap that they are selling us." She: "Don't worry, it will all be over after Jan. 20th."

As someone who has lost 5 family members to COVID including my husband, the love of my life after 50 years of a wonderful marriage, I started to say something to them. Then I thought, Why? Biden is President, the virus is raging, nothing I can say will change either. Watched them get into their respective autos and drive off. left me standing there with tears for the over 240K gone and their families that are left here to deal with the Trumpers walking among us.

SCOTUS is in a hellova positon. If they scrap Obamacare, I believe

the two GA Senate seats will go to Dems. It would be a new ballgame.

OK celebrants: Keep you masks on but go back home. Over 1000 deaths yesterday 126, new cases.

We need to help Biden/Harrise defeat this demon, COVID.
We can't be like the Trumpers and beat it back. It's either mask up and distance back, or keep the businesses shut. I believe many places of business can ope if we just follow the rules.

Has KIM called in yet? Putin? Xi?

Only two GOPers have checked in that I know of. Romney and Murkowski.

GA going to have to do some heavy lifting to save us from Mitch and Lindsey.

It is going to take at least two visits by the President elect and VP elect to bring it on home for the American people. They won't be able to do to with Mitch and Lindsey running the show in the Senate. Stacey will need all the help she can get to fight off the number advantage the GOP has over the Dems.

Here are a few of the main things Georgians need to be reminded of

1. There will be little that Biden will be able to do for the ordinary, non 1% working men and women with Mitch and the GOP standing in the way as they have done for the past 8 years.

2. Mitch, Lindsey and the rest of the GOP in the Senate have already shown us that they men and women of low character, the boldly lied about the reasons for denying Garland a vote and they lied to the American people when they promised that they would allow the next President to select the next SCOTUS pick if the vacancy occurred during the election year. They are liars and in it only for themselves and their rich buddies. House Dems have been trying to get that Cares package thru the Senate for the past 6 months and Mitch is sitting on it and bragging about it.

3, Everyone can plainly see that Joe and Kamala are not "socialists" which is another lie perpetrated by the GOP to scare people into voting against them. It didn't work.

4. What good does it do if GA has two Senators in this Senate who will not be fighting for hard-working men and women in GA. The GOP candidates will only be in it to fatten their own pockets and those of their buddies. You can see that from what they have done or not done for Georgians so far.

5. Putting two Georgian Dems in the Senate guarantees that Biden will be able to get his JOBS and Healthcare programs passed. The GOP has already shown that they don't really give a damn.

We need to help Stacey all that we can by getting our friends and relatives to understand what is at stake and get them to be sure to get out there and vote in January. And they need to do everything in their power to help ensure fair and safe voting venues.

My relatives there have already begun holding meetings in their homes to organize for January. They fee they have a good chance to give Biden the Senate he needs. A few of their friends and neighbors who had voted for Purdue have already said they were through with him.

in appreciation for those who counted ballots night and day. In honor of Stacey, John, Elijah, Jim (Clyburn). And in homage to those who are and who have served our loved ones in hospitals, nursing homes, on the front lines of the pandemic. And for Joe and Kamala who put their heart and soul into the race to save the soul of America.
