I haven't felt the need to write about politics.
I'll rephrase: I haven't wanted to write about politics.
Save some Covid references where politics might be involved, I haven't really had a post since November 22nd. Yet I feel the need to acknowledge the Electoral College - the vote, not the College itself.
...and maybe Barr's resignation. Or sedition. Or secession. Either way - it was calming for me to write yesterday about the Bee Gees than any of this.
That fucktard, Stephen Miller is claiming doing his / their only electoral college count and bring them for confirmation. Except for the facts that he cannot, there is no precedence for it - oh and both the House and Senate have to endorse the actual results. It's doubtful the Democratic led house would pass it. He's all hot air........and evil. ....and NOW that Mitch is on board? Well.................. yay?
Still the point of this post was to mention that the Electoral College did indeed certify the election. Pappy Joe is the winner.
But speaking of the House: 126 members, with the egging on of BLOTUS, tried to attempt a coup. Everyone is all up in arms, though the set-up for the coup has been going on for at least two years - starting with the questioning of any loss they might have equals a fraudulent vote.
I think it's safe to say that 99% of the country has never heard the word "sedition". Present company included. But the call is for these 126 reps not to be seated in the House due to their coup-y ways. I'm for it, but I''m tired of it all. At least make their life a fucking hell for the next two years. Don't let any of them sit on one fucking committee.
...and one fucking weak-ass republican from Michigan who is moving to be an Independent because he cannot stand how the Republicans have acted. Oh - his term if finished at the end of the year. So.........thanks for nothing?
Again the word 'secession' has been bandied about too. Knock yourselves out red states. See who funds your disaster relief when tornados and hurricanes wipe you out. Once again, all talk no action. They couldn't successfully rig and election or overturn the results - they certainly can't figure out infrastructure or how to print new currency.
Then there is Barr. Quit. Fired. Quit before fired. Who cares. He inflicted a lot of damage and puckered up even for his resignation letter. He could have ridden out 36 more days - no? My cynical mind is telling me, he's going to give way to his successor to do evil, crappy things in the next month. Things he probably wanted done but not have his name attached. Everyone is cheering Barr leaving, but I think we might see something worse.
And let's not forget, I could be completely wrong on some of this. But not all of it.
