Does this mean that Bill Barr won't get his COVID shot?

Maybe he should have hung on long enough to get his White House shot.

I don't think that Trump will be in the White House by Jan 20

I don't think he'll resign early. He'll just leave at some point. He and Melania won't be there to greet Joe and Jill. Trump won't attend the inauguration. He'll pack up and sneak off sometime before Jan 20.

Trump is the ultimate sore loser.

I voted! Correction from earlier....

My wife and I voted by absentee ballots, which we mailed about a week ago. We checked the online ballot tracker and it says our ballots have been accepted at our county board of elections.

Two more votes for Biden and all the Democratic candidates running in North Carolina.

Have you voted yet? If so, post here. We need to hear encouraging news.

Chris Wallace is pathetic.

We can't stand them either.

As I watch instance after instance of obnoxious white women calling the police on black people who are simply minding their own business, I recognize a familiarity.

These are the same mean girls I couldn't stand in middle school. They're the same entitled prissy white women who lived on my dorm floor in college (and got the nice black custodian reassigned just because... yeah, we recognized that you were a stuck-up racist way back then).

They're the same pushy bleach-blonde moms who complained endlessly about the teachers at our kids' schools - and always signed up to be a chaperone on the band trips because it fed their Little Hitler complexes. Guess what. My kids couldn't stand you either. The band director couldn't stand you, the principal couldn't stand you, and the rest of us parents tolerated you just to be polite.

And you're the woman I tried to be friends with in my neighborhood when our kids were toddlers because my son liked your son, but the way you whispered "black people" and referred to "those people" meant that it was always going to be impossible for us to be friends.

I didn't realize that you were walking through life harassing black people - although the incident with the custodian in college should have been a big clue - but now that I know, I'm not surprised.

And I recognize that it's up to me and every other white person to start calling you out on your racism. I regret not having done more in the past. The time for polite assumptions of good will is over. Now I see what you do when you think the country club set isn't watching you.

The IRS just called me from Ontario to say I'm risking jail and suspension of my social security.

The voice mail was polite, though. He wrapped up with "thank you and have blessed day."

I don't want Trump to drop out.

If Trump drops out, the Republicans will replace him with a "reasonable" sounding conservative who could win the election. Once in the White House, the RNC will proceed to hide all the treason, all the illegal activity that took place during this corrupt administration. It will be swept under the rug and we'll never know most of it. We'll never be able to fix it.

I want tribunals. I want congressional investigations. I want grand juries. I want it all exposed, down to the rotten filthy roots, so that we can finally clean out the rot and rebuild our country.

Trump seems to think that testing causes COVID-19

Ponder what that means.
