LOL. I'll go with the market sentiment. We have a priced-in Biden win and at least a generous Q1 fiscal stimulus money printing package (some disappointment and volitivity still possible because it's way late). A extraordinarily poor executive branch will be replaced. Trump and his fake Christian side-kick will go down as shit-stains in the history books.

The idea of a foreign force invading the US was shocking on 9-11, but I always knew it could and probably would happen at some time (put enough monkeys in a room with typewriters, and eventually...), you know how that goes.

Most of the US became hysterical after 9-11, leading to the invasion of a country that had nothing to do with it.  I remember Bush saying, "They wanted to take away our freedoms."  I don't know if that was their agenda.  It may have been part of a bigger agenda, but the US was clearly a target.  We haven't heard much from those guys since that attack.  There have been a few bumbled bombings that made big headlines, but were of little consequence to the nation as a whole.  Now that specific threat is a greatly diminished.  But the fall of democracy is much farther along today, and our biggest threat comes from within.  Our leaders appear to be loving it.  It's been the fodder of their campaigns as they wring their hands and point fingers at our own people, while doing little that would help anyone but the very rich.

We have become distracted.  Instead of becoming "great again" if we ever were to begin with, we have become petty, mean and ugly.  We would hurt our fellow countrymen, rather than help them.  We have done a lot of stupid things in the past, but I can't remember a time in my life where Washington, DC has been this dysfunctional.

I'm not betting on a Biden win.  We are operating under new rules for democracy, and if Biden does win, I don't expect much.  He may or may not make things worse, but I don't expect him to make things better.  Democrats will be happy, and Republicans will be sad, but no one is likely to be better off when it's all said and done.

Where's that candidate that wanted to give everyone $1000 a month?  I'm ready for a buy out.  I'll cash it in and go on one last bender before the sun sets.  And Washington can go ahead and do whatever it wants.

Yang yourself on Zoom and people will know ;-)

"CNN ANALYST SUSPENDED FROM MAGAZINE JOB FOR WHIPPING OUT HIS DONG ON ZOOM CALL" ... my grand-dad's business parter did the first porn broadcast on Earth.  Dr Baker, a real nut job.

"University Of Chicago Faculty Demands Reparations" ... send the grad students home (they don't do undergrad there), then burn the faculty along with the buildings.

"an elite based in certain blue states disdains ordinary Americans" .. don't stop with the professors, burn the Elite in general

"San Diego School District Announces It Will Eliminate Grading Standards To "Combat Racism"" ... register your kids in Spanish, they never have to go to class, they all get As.

"LIBERALS JUMPING SHIP AND VOTING TRUMP AS DEMOCRATS GO INSANE, LEFTISTS CALL TO ABOLISH CONSTITUTI.." ... that pesky Bill of Rights, like freedom of religion, freedom of assembly, freedom to arms. freedom of speech ... very annoying to the new Dictatorship.

Bret Weinstein, famous liberal professor, once oppressed at Evergreen State College, now banned from Facebook, because of the snowflakes.

"We are governed now in private, by entities that make their own rules and are answerable to no process. Disaster is inevitable. We are living it." - Bret Weinstein

Facebook claims it was a mistake, a flagging of a false account, and they have fixed the problem.

"No Signature Match? No Postmark? No Problemo! This Week In Ballot Shenanigans!" ... both parties want to rig elections in their own favor.  Their policy statements are malarky.  So ... looks like we can blame the irish, not the Russians.

"Top 10% Of Twitter Users Create 92% Of Tweets In US - And 69% Of Them Lean Left" .. roughly similar to here ;-)
