Quote of the Day:

“Sometimes the Bible in the hand of one man is worse than a whiskey bottle in the hand of another . . . There are just some kind of men who – who’re so busy worrying about the next world they’ve never learned to live in this one, and you can look down the street and see the results.”

Harper Lee, To Kill a Mockingbird

It will always amaze me until the day I die that over 73 million people voted for Trump even after he pissed all over America in numerous, evil ways and then let thousands Americans die from Covid through his inaction at the start of the disease and through his giving up on it in September.

Quote of the Day:

“That’s how you know you’re home, I think, no matter how far you’ve gone from it or how long you’ve been in some other place. Home is where they want you to stay longer.”

Stephen King, Revival

Quote of the Day:

“We all write poems; it is simply that poets are the ones who write in words.”

John Fowles, The French Lieutenant’s Woman

Yesterday I was watching CNN for a while and was thunderstruck by the Covid stats that they show in the corner of the screen. Over the span of 45 minutes the total of those reported dying from Covid increased by 71. By 2 hours it was up 203. I turned off the TV and sat there stunned and actually cried for a bit for those poor souls.

Trump's administration gave up fighting the virus. Gave up and pissed on America. Overall yesterday 2 Americans died for every minute of the day.

“Kindness is the language which the deaf can hear and the blind can see.

Mark Twain

So what if the real 'cheater' of this election was Trump? Figuring based on participants in past elections, they decided that 73 million votes would be plenty to beat Biden. What they didn't count on was the enormous turnout to push Biden over 80 million. So if they did cheat in some way, Biden's lead was likely much greater. Trump keeps pushing the cheating line because he cheated and really lost by much more.Likely there was no cheating or fraud at all. And Joe still kicked his fat ass!

Quote of the Day:

“The universe makes rather an indifferent parent, I’m afraid.”

Charles Dickens, Bleak House

I read this saying from the Greek philosopher, Heraclitus who died died around 460 B.C. What he is reputed to have said is very apt today.

"A man's character is his fate."

Careful of this scam. I just got contacted on Facebook Messenger by a college friend I hadn't been in touch with for 40 years. The Messenger chat quickly when to this scam as described in this link.

Per the Civics Center, an organization for building youth civic engagement and voter participation, about 23,000 young people in #Georgia weren't old enough to vote in the general election this year, but will be eligible to vote in the runoff election for U.S. Senate on January 5, 2021 - if they register to vote by the deadline, December 7, 2020.

You can pre-register if you're 17 1/2 and will be 18 by January 5. Your vote can make the difference in 2 important elections. sos.ga.gov/index.php/Elections

Quote of the Day:

“There is, after all, a kind of happiness in unhappiness, if it’s the right unhappiness.”

Jonathan Franzen, Freedom

So Trump was saying for months he could only lose if the other side cheated. We all know that was a distraction to hide all the nefarious cheating tactics they were using. What if Biden really won by 10 or 15 million while Trump had folks playing with the voting machines?

Quote of the Day:

“His life felt dry with a literal thirst for righteousness, which was like a glass of ice-cold water on a table in another man’s room.”

Graham Greene, Orient Express
