This is from the Supreme Court over 100 years ago:


“The Constitution does not import an absolute right in each person to be, at all times and in all circumstances, wholly freed from restraint. A community has the right to protect itself against an epidemic, and its members may at times, under the pressure of great dangers, be subjected to such restraint, to be enforced by reasonable regulations, as the safety of the general public may demand.” Jacobson vs Massachusetts, 197 U.S. 11, 7-2 majority

It is not over yet stupid!

I live in Georgia and I wear a mask every time I go into a facility where there will be others.
I belong to a car club where about a dozen of our members have continued to meet twice a month for a meal at different restaurants. I stopped meeting with them. One died a few weeks ago from the virus and a second one last week.
Today I stopped by a supermarket for two items. When I got to checkout, there was an elderly lady in front of me, so I stood about six feet behind her in the checkout line. Then I felt someone actually breathing on my neck and turned around and a guy was standing that close behind me with no mask.
On my way home, I realized I had forgot something, so I stopped by Walmart. I was there about six weeks ago and a large majority wore masks. This time, I estimate 40% were mask free and that included many senior citizens and others who were obviously in poor health.
What is wrong with people? How can individuals who appear to be intelligent be so ignorant?

Happy Days are here again!!!!!!!

This song is from over 90 years ago (1929) that swept the nation. It express my feelings today as we will soon be rid or Misters Trump and McConnell and have a new President and two new senators. Have a listen and see it you don't feel just like they did back in those early days when they first heard this song.

My email sent to Austin Scott, my Georgia representative in who has signed on with Texas to ...

... overturn the election.


"Sir, Have you no decency? You are supposed to represent Georgia yet you are attempting to nullify every Georgian's vote, whether they are republican or democrat. You know full well that there was no voter fraud in Georgia. You disgust me sir and should be removed from office. Resign so we can have a representative that supports Georgia voters who is not a COWARD."

I agree with Democrats not showing up today for the committee vote...

...to move the vote for the Supreme Court nominee for a yes or down vote by the Senate to add her to the Supreme Court. Regardless of what they do she will be confirmed. But...
if I understand what dems are doing, there is some disagreement whether it is legal to do that unless two of the minority party votes. Dems could protest but they will not for a good reason. If the democrats win the Presidency and Senate they can stack the court as much as they want since if it was OK for the GOP then they will not have a leg to stand on when dems do the same.

What if...

When I saw that Trump and Pence shook hands before a dinner with Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro who had had contact with another person having the virus, my first thought was, in a best case scenario, Nancy Pelosi would become POTUS!

According to Politico:

Just hours after Joe Biden surged to the top of the Democratic presidential pack, Senate Republicans announced a new phase of their investigation targeting the former vice president and his son Hunter.

Senate Homeland Security Committee Chairman Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) told reporters on Wednesday that he is likely to release an interim report within one to two months on his panel’s probe of Hunter Biden’s ties to a Ukrainian gas company, Burisma.

“These are questions that Joe Biden has not adequately answered,” Johnson said. “And if I were a Democrat primary voter, I’d want these questions satisfactorily answered before I cast my final vote.”


Guess the Trumpers are running scared. GOOD!!!

Democrats currently running for president are making great political ads for Trump...

... and republicans to use, and they are doing it for free!
It doesn't matter who our nominee is, all republicans have to do is post videos of our candidates making charges against the eventual nominee during the primaries. Some of the charges that have been made are shocking if true. Undecided independents and republicans would likely have doubts if the nominee is fit to be president. IMHO.

I question whether Bernie can beat Trump

More and more, I question whether Bernie can beat Trump even though I will vote for him if he is our nominee. I see the GOP tarring and feathering Bernie as a radical socialist and will likely get traction with both republicans and independents. In my opinion, some of his promises will be impossible to deliver. Republicans are eager for Sanders to be the nominee and are already attacking down ballot democrats as "Bernie socialists." Should Trump win, regardless of our nominee, we must ALL have voted to fill the House and Senate with democrats so Trump can be impeached again and removed from office as soon as possible.
