Good Morning.

We're Americans. And particularly me as a Bostonian - we literally fought a war so we didn't have to care about the Royal Family.

Yesterday, President Biden Spoke about his administration's desire to get the "American Jobs Plan" passed into law. He is open to compromise, but, as he stated emphatically, not to inaction.

The New Normal
Author: BobR    Date: 04/07/2021 12:51:12

For the past year, our "normal" has been masks, hand-washing, social distancing, hand sanitizer, and avoiding people indoors. Before the pandemic, our normal was 4 years of a nightmare president, who was a firehose of outrage. Everyday was a challenge to pick which one to write about. Before that we had 6 years of one of the best presidents in my lifetime, who had to contend with a Republican Congress when trying to get anything done.

And now?.... Now the pandemic isn't over, but Spring is in the air, and there is a spring in our step. A huge number of our fellow countrymen have been vaccinated. There is a competent, level-headed man in the White House, a woman as vice-president, and Congress is in Democratic hands. We can see plenty of good things happening over the next couple years. What a great feeling (almost like 2008-2010).

We can't have both
Author: Raine    Date: 04/05/2021 13:09:26

There are some that say the demise of this Republican party began with Newt in the 90s. Some say Reagan's administration was where it all fell apart. It's almost immaterial now. This political party has become a party with no political policy. You'll recall last year, they didn't write a platform; instead, they just reused the 2020 platform.

One Person's Opinion
Author: Raine    Date: 04/01/2021 13:08:13

I have been watching the trial of Derek Chauvin. It's triggering. It's upsetting. It has been at some points too much to watch. I purposefully did not view the original viral video of his death last year.

I didn't know that it was a 17-year-old girl who recorded it on Memorial Day 2020. I didn't know she had her 8-year-old cousin with her that day. I didn't know an 18-year-old cashier tended to Mr. Floyd at the convenience store that day. I didn't know an off-duty EMT tried to save his life. I wasn't aware that people all around the incident saw what was happening, filmed it knowing they wanted to do more, but couldn't.

With trial of ex-cop murderer Chauvin going on yesterday, it seemed like anything else would be buried. However, everyone's favorite game show "Republicans Behaving Badly" had an extra-special episode yesterday entitled "Matt Gaetz Is Said to Face Justice Dept. Inquiry Over Sex With an Underage Girl". This story - broken by the NY Times - is being picked up and repeated (yes, it's "gone viral"):
Representative Matt Gaetz, Republican of Florida and a close ally of former President Donald J. Trump, is being investigated by the Justice Department over whether he had a sexual relationship with a 17-year-old and paid for her to travel with him, according to three people briefed on the matter.

Investigators are examining whether Mr. Gaetz violated federal sex trafficking laws, the people said. A variety of federal statutes make it illegal to induce someone under 18 to travel over state lines to engage in sex in exchange for money or something of value. The Justice Department regularly prosecutes such cases, and offenders often receive severe sentences.
