    Oh, I totally get it and agree. That doesn't change the fact that no one did anything to change, discredit, or otherwise discount the charges by the GOP. That baggage she was carrying, she'd been carrying for more than 10 years in 2008.

    An Esquire article about the inauguration said that Pence looked like a guy on his first day of parole. :lol:

    Biden overcame a stuttering problem, so I cut him slack on that

    I disagree with at least half of what he says, but it's coming in good faith on his end. That's an improvement.

    What my cousin, Bryan Adams, said - as long as I know it's coming straight from the heart.










    ** Full disclosure - Bryan Adams is in no way related to me. I just like to joke because we share the same last name.

    So we're back in the Paris Climate Agreement.

    Is it too soon to resume arguing about climate change?

    If all those opposed to climate change have fled, does that mean that Wordforge is now unanimously in favour of climate change? :unsure:

    The crew is getting dragged on social media for not bringing enough lights (that segment was the only part of the whole day, really, that looked pretty bad) but they might've had Secret Service restrictions. :(

    It's a new day.
    All of the people who helped make trump happen are free and pardoned
    we are still seeing over a 9/11 a day die from a disease we were controlling.
    There are millions being thrown out of their homes and are starving
    There are millions looking at being thrown out of their homes and starving next month
    we have the national guard in many of our capitols because of the threat of domestic terrorism and we have not made a dent in it.
    We now have multiple fake news networks, parler is back, and they are not going anywhere

    I do like how the lincoln project is telling us to go back to sleep now that biden has been elected. I guess that is nice for those of us who have a bed to sleep in.

    The fact that we have a presidential rather than parliamentary system may be one factor:

    I got told for 4 years that I didn't love America enough. I knew it wasn't true, but after a while I begin to think, "Well maybe I'm just not American enough". Today was a great day. I loved the celebration of a nation. It was amazing!
