Hello fediverse!
Peggy Carter, checking in after migrating to this instance with
New home, same mission.

Really, it's so ludicrous. Any legislator who refuses to acknowledge Biden's victory is basically a coward of epic proportion, who cares less about upholding their sworn duty than pandering.

74 million people are ok with this and despite the pieces that claim I need to listen to them, I can't see why.

220 congressional Republicans won't say whether Biden or Trump won the election, Washington Post survey finds - The Washington Post
washingtonpost.com/politics/su

When are Republican leaders going to condemn this kind of unethical and inappropriate behavior? Or is it OK to try to overturn the will of the electorate just because you don't like the result? 

Anyone who wants a decent reputation going forward needs to leave the party and let the GOP disappear into the rat hole of history.

Trump calls Georgia governor to pressure him for help overturning Biden’s win in the state - The Washington Post

Congresswoman Mary Gay Scanlon on what kind of stimulus each party wants:

Democrats (House): restaurant relief for small businesses like your corner bistro or neighborhood pizza place

Republicans (Senate): tax breaks for two-martini lunches

Republicans encourage client lunches in a pandemic?! In my city, you can only dine outdoors right now and only with your own household. Bring the relief to keep our restaurants afloat until people are vaccinated!

1. Too many people don't get the connection between SOCIAL Security, Medicare, highways, dams, airports, roads, fire departments (things that they like) and the social democracy that it takes to run those programs.

2. The republican party has turned into a cult. Hysteria is the theme and socialism is one of the dog whistle buzzwords.

Why Republicans are resorting to anti-socialism hysteria - conservatives will say anything to justify backing a racist, loony president:

The amount of farm subsidy payments under trump has almost tripled. That’s money going from blue states to red states, all to support a trade war with China that was based on the faulty premise that China was stealing from us because we were running a huge trade deficit. 

But after 4 years of trump, our trade deficit with China has increased and Midwest farm foreclosures are up to 2008 levels.

@TonyStark Social democracy is responsible for every common good.

GOP brainwashing has turned people against themselves.

Make sure you're registered to vote in the January 5 runoff elections! The deadline is Monday, December 7!

Both of your U.S. Senate seats are up for election. It will decide your full representation in the U.S. Senate and will decide whether or not Republicans maintain their Senate majority and continual obstruction.

Please register if you haven't, check your registration if you have, and ask 3 friends to do the same. mvp.sos.ga.gov/MVP/mvp.do

I awoke to a weight on my chest and the smell of tuna-breath funneled directly up my nostrils.

"Feed me," demanded a low, scratchy voice.

Myra had warned me about this; spend enough time with a witch's familiar and you start understanding each other. I'd been cat-sitting Taterpuff for almost a month.

"It is," I grumbled, "Not 8am yet."

"Oh. Sorry."

"Thanks."

"Is 8am now?"

"No!"

"No yell! Am familiar, not time-keeper."

Ali Velshi on the maxim that the USA only has one president at a time: "It's clear that we have one president. It's just not the man in the White House." There is a reason I watch MSNBC all the time.

Colorado has placed its first order for the Pfizer vaccine. :blobyay:

"CDPHE said Pfizer plans to ship the first vaccine allocations to states within 24 hours of the FDA issuing an EUA. Colorado will begin administering the vaccine shortly after the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) makes its recommendations for vaccine use."

I was somewhere today where a woman thought it was appropriate to go in wearing a mesh mask. I'm sure she thought she was being cute and clever. 🧐Fortunately, management disagreed and told her to go get a proper mask or stay out.

Congress needs to issue a permanent solution for DACA kids. They have lived here their whole lives and know no other home.

I hope this judge has set the gold standard for the other state lawsuits trying to end DACA. Go take an irrelevant seat, Donny.

Your days and attempts to end our democracy are getting fewer as you continue to be a loser in more ways than one.

Federal judge restores DACA, orders DHS to accept first-time applications from immigrants:

Honestly, if it was only his supporters he was grifting, I wouldn't care.

Yeah, they could probably use the money more than he can, but if they're not smart enough to accept they're being conned, they probably shouldn't have it in the first place.

But it's not just them. It's every taxpayer, our money. And that's the part that requires a reckoning.

Trump campaign committees spent $1.1 million at Trump properties in the last days of his losing campaign:
