Fabulous Friday

While I'm not much of the outdoorsy type, this seems like another one of those places that much be visited.

Only the Tip of the iceberg
Author: Raine    Date: 01/14/2021 14:02:38

I'm still having a hard time wrapping my head around the events of last week. I wax and wane from anger, sorrow, shock, and disbelief. The level of hatred and depravity from this seditious mob and the individuals who participated is almost incomprehensible.

Truth and Consequences
Author: BobR    Date: 01/13/2021 14:23:16

When then-candidate tRump threw his hat in the ring in 2015, it seemed like a joke. There was no way he could get the nomination, right?... and that became "there's no way he can win in the General, right?"... which - sadly - became "there's no way he'll last 4 years, right?". We'll see about that last one, but a few days off the total would - at this point - be merely symbolic.

Ah yes - we were all so young and innocent in those days. We had not yet experienced the horror show that was to be unleashed upon the USA and the world. It should not have been a surprise. Gingrich and his list of words to demonize the Democrats set the tone shift from policy differences to character assassination. This continued on up through the Bush administration and McConnell as Senate Majority Leader.

The fallout from the attack a week ago continues.

Caught in the moment, just following orders.
Author: Raine    Date: 01/11/2021 13:56:36

Not all Germans were Nazis. Those who weren't suffered by the regime. The entire world ultimately still bears the scars of the evil they forced upon the world. Those who say "I got caught up in the moment" last Wednesday, have no defense for the evil they thrusted upon this country and the world.

Fluffy Friday

12 Days to go. (Or sooner, Pence and the cabinet are for still looking for their backbones. Someone check Lincoln's blanket chest.)

It's from the Inside
Author: Raine    Date: 01/07/2021 13:59:27

I'm still having a hard time absorbing what happened yesterday. I watched it, you watched it. Many of us have been inside that beautiful building on the hill.

Buh Bye
Author: BobR    Date: 01/06/2021 13:30:18

Here's a belated Happy New Year to our readers. When 2020 ended, we thought we'd leave it all behind and start anew. With Joe Biden elected and COVID vaccines coming out, it certainly looks like brighter days ahead. That said - there are good and bad already, and today is looking to shape up to be one of those days.

Yesterday was finally the runoff election for the remaining two Senate seats that could decide control of the Senate. Per GA law, a candidate must win 50%+1 of the votes to be declared winner. Since none of the Senate candidates won that much back in November, this runoff was necessary. If you've ever contributed to a Democratic candidates election in the past, you've undoubtedly been inundated with requests via email, text, etc.
