    I wish I could say today's activity is unbelievable, but in fact we have been seeing buildups to this for 4 years. Sadly much of the world has been rejecting liberal democracy [[not Liberal Democrats - those who don't know the difference, look it up) and embracing autocracy. djt [[doesn't deserve even upper-case letters), who has never had any interest in history, the place of America in the world, or anything other than himself, is obviously delusional [[probably always has been) and instead of ending what he called 'American carnage' has inflamed American's descent into a banana republic. 'We have to come together as a country'? Sorry. Each and every djt voter has defined themself for eternity.

    Agreed! He's always been this way ever since he started running for office back in 2015 [[remember back then, he said he would not accept defeat and he would call for a riot). Now that he's lost re-election four years later, he made good on his threat. As others are saying, 25th Amendment NOW.

    America is broken. Application of the 25th Amendment could indeed remove Trump from
    office replacing him possibly with Pence whom it can't be denied, enabled him for so long.
    Biden would take the reins after Jan 20 and that would indeed be a big benefit to the
    country's stability, still......There are elephants in the room....None of the victorious
    races of the last 2 months have been landslides, remember. The country has never been
    more divided than it is now and though Joe and Kamala will be able to resolve a number
    of issues for their supporters, they will not be able to change the minds or action choices
    of those who've been intent on creating a different direction for us. America is broken.
    Secure your valuables, protect your loved ones, watch your back...

    And I don't wanna hear another goddamned word about how wrong Kaepernick's method of protesting was again in LIFE. Those goddamned mall cops were posing for SELFIES with these brownshirted traitorous monsters. And not ONE arrest.

    Trump is the symptom, not the disease that led to the demise of this country. He was their excuse to scratch their anarchist and violent itch but not their reason for doing it. The Republican Party has been watering this particular weed patch for more than 50 years and as weeds are wont to do, they grew out of control. With that being said, he's is a vile and evil man who needs to be brought to justice for his many crimes, although there is no justice for a devil who allows 360,000 [[and counting) people to die and threw children in cages even as he sent their parents back to their home countries, where they may never be reunited.

    We have been building to this moment for nearly 160 years and all the rhetoric and light of democracy bullsh*t branding in the world can't change what I and many others have already been seeing. It makes me think back to 1968 when Tommy Smith and John Carlos raised their arms in protest. They were stripped of their Olympic medals and sent home to be shamed and intimidated by their communities and the press. We're 52 years beyond that moment and the same stuff they protested is still occurring. If nothing, we've gone backwards.

    Totally agree with all said above. Trump and his like just couldn't bear
    to have Barack Obama as president. The cockroaches have emerged.
    Biden will have the task of reviving all the good work of Obama that
    Trump and his administration tried to reverse for four years. We
    seem to be surrounded by the infestation. They sometimes give the
    illusion of normal people. It's taking too long to get Trump out of there.

    I'd like to see this process go faster. Dems pussy-foot a lot IMO. Trump is not a
    pin prick to this country he's a series of shot gun wounds. It's not "see when I can schedule you for an appointment" time, it's urgent care time. When you more than
    40 percent of Repubs saying they approve of Weds events it's time to pull the rug
    from under the ass wipe in charge...

    Yeah, splanky, that's what bothers me when I hear that Biden and the Dems have to "reach out" to people who would literally kill them. Hearing the news constantly talking about appeasing the 74 million losers who voted for him instead of paying more attention to the 81 million who voted to defeat him. They didn't talk any of that smack in 2016 when five million more people voted for Clinton, did they? They took joy in telling people to stop crying and move along. But now, more attention is being focused on second place.

    I'll bet we see the first visits to Trump Country next week and that we'll never see the media visit Biden Country in his entire term in office.

    The reason Twitter cut him loose is because when he posted his plan to stay away from the inauguration, he was telling his crazy army that it was safe for them to attack the ceremony. Twitter found chatter on and off its site from extremists who are already mobilizing to stage another dangerous "protest" based on his informative tweet.

    And the cockroaches have wreaked havoc on this very Forum, cheerleading for this fraud of a President, crying about a phantasmagorical “socialism” that they don’t even have the intellectual bandwidth to discuss, and doing all manner of gaslighting of people of color and women. Now that the light has been switched on, they have scurried into the woodwork. Are we great again yet, losers?

    He might quit tonight. The State Department's official website has his term ending in about an hour. Can we be so lucky?

    DJT deserves everything that comes his way. President Pussy Grabber is now trying to stiff old hair dye leaking Rudy out of the legal fees for all the fake lawsuits he filed in court. LMAO. Just wait until the NY DA and Deutsche Bank come after him. Hes gonna cry like the baby he is.

    Old thread. Just wanted to say that I hope everyone here has, or will get their covid vaccination[[s). I got my second Moderna shot almost three weeks ago and feel great.

    Stay safe and be well. We can't afford to lose more people. With the new direction of the U.S., I can see light at the end of the tunnel.

    Ralph and I completed our set of Pfizer vaccinations in February with no ill effects. We were able to get the shots while sitting in our car at a nearby fire station. It took awhile
    to get an appointment.

    Nevertheless, we are still mitigating. We still wear masks and keep distances. Not
    that much is known of the new variants.

    I feel when you get vaccinated, you are doing it for humanity.

    It's been hard to make an appointment here. I tried for a couple of weeks before I was able to book an appointment for this Thursday. Fortunately, I'm the last of my parents' kids to get it and I'd argue I'm the one whose most diligent to stay safe. I'll be glad just to be able to sit with Mom without a mask again.
