• In many parts of the USA the hospitals are in crisis mode, and in the UK a new more easily transmitted variant of COVID has been detected. Responsible governmental leaders all over the world have banned travel from the UK. In the meantime Trump continues to ignore the crisis and focus on ways to execute a coup.

• So the votes have been counted, recounted and counted again, and the FBI says there was no widespread fraud, but in spite of this many still think Trump won, which brings to mind what Mark Twain said. “No amount of evidence will convince an idiot.”

• The stimulus checks will be too little too late. Thank you Mitch McConnell for nothing!

• A simple question for those folks who still display Trump/Pence 2020 signs or flags on their property: Don’t you know it’s over?

• It is really comforting not to have to listen to lame duck “what’s his name”’s rants on a daily basis, but one wonders what this bozo has up his sleeve. He has shown how shallow and selfish he truly is, but he needs to do something about his buddy Putin’s hacking efforts. What a total zero this man-child is!

• Congratulations to Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and his Republican colleagues for shrinking COVID relief checks to the millions of people suffering in this country from the pandemic. We can always count on this party to make the lives of people in need worse.

• Where is President Donald Trump; is he hiding in a basement? Why has he not spoken to the American people about the Russian government hacking into our federal systems? Why is he not speaking to the American people about the record number of infections associated with COVID-19 and his administration’s efforts to slow the spread?

• Mount Rushmore was very beautiful before it was carved. In fact, its natural beauty was unpresidented.

• What kind of socialism are they talking about? Healthcare? Social Security? Or roads and bridges? Wake up people. You don’t care?

My father-in-law believes in romantic getaways. When my mother-in-law gets romantic, he gets away!

• All the candidates who are running for Senate are jerks. I am really getting tired of the negative TV and radio ads.

• This is a portion of the bill the Swamp passed. President Trump vetoed it with good reason. Stimulus Pork: (Domestic Spending) Kennedy Center, $26.4 million; Smithsonian, $1 billion; National Art Gallery, $154 million; National Art & Humanities, $167 million; W Wilson Center, $14 million.

• In the bill President Trump vetoed, the American people were to get $600 each. This is what foreign countries would have received: Egypt, $1.3 billion; Sudan, $700 million; Ukraine, $453 million; Israel, $500 million; Nepal, $130 million; Burma, $135 million; Cambodia, $85.5 million; Pakistan, $25 million; and Asia R.I.A., $1.4 billion.
