50 things that are better already

https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/2021/01/25/fifty-things-that-are-better-already/

7. Qualified and knowledgeable nominees have been selected for senior spots

20. We have a White House staff that looks like America

30. No Soviet-style fawning over the president by his subordinates

31. The president takes daily, in-person intelligence briefings

44. No more work-free “executive time” in the presidential living quarters

3. I listened to the Press Secretary's daily news conference yesterday..

...what a refreshing breath of fresh air!!!!

To listen to FACTS and honest opinion and not the previous regimes LIE-FEST.

(I particularly enjoyed the Faux News reporter getting his jock strap handed to him when he tried the "gotcha" question...)

4. A few more:

2. The White House briefing room is not an Orwellian nightmare of lies

4. We are not paying for golf trips

11. We get normal readouts of sane conversations between the president and foreign leaders

18. The president is able to articulate policy details, coherently even

33. We have a president familiar with the Constitution

49. The administration wants as many people as possible to vote

5. You can see it on TV, many people are laughing and obviously getting more sleep

But we still have to make this change durable for 8-12 years to avoid Nazi redux!

8. Daily press conferences with Jen Psaki who is brilliant & beautiful without looking like a hooker.

My whole family loves her and we all rave about her every time we listen to one of her pressers.

9. Hear! Hear!

Because of these things, I am finally, after 4+ years, able to sleep more than 30 minutes at a time.

Thank you, all who voted for Biden!

10. A very good list. The only thing I had a problem with is the "christian values" line.

14. Dogs make everything and everybody better.

You take care of dogs and dogs take care of you. I swear they know when you are not well and stay close to you. It's phenomenal.
