Mental toughness

Here is a link to Trump's speech from yesterday (I believe.)

This is a nonstop rant against the election outcome, filled with lies. He doesn't exactly have spittle coming out, but he is still a lunatic. Strangely, he did not huff and puff like he normally does, although he never paused for 46 minutes or so.

In this speech, he stated that he does not want a revote. He simply wants to be declared the winner. Well, what are you going to do with that...??

On December 14th, the Electors will vote. It will not be over on that date. As much as we all would like to lay down our weary heads, it will go on to January 6th. We have to be strong, tough, and ready.

On the 6th, we can expect an objection to the Electors to be made from the floor. We have been through this before, but not with anyone like Trump. We have to support our Congress people like nobody's business. They cannot flinch or compromise with the Repubs on any kind of change to the vote whatsoever.

They will debate for two hours, I guess behind closed doors, and then they will announce the outcome. If no compromise is reached, I guess that's when it could go before Trump's SC.

If we wake up on the 7th with Trump as President, I will scream.

A good alternate location

What would be a good, alternate WH location if we have to drag Donnie Two Scoops out of the building?

We need to Lysol both the WH and Camp David. So...?

Some location that everyone can reach, easily fortified for protection, and clean. What other Federal buildings are there?

Hey, I'm thinking ahead. I favor turning off the utilities, cutting off the fast food deliveries, and preventing TV interviews. I'm content to wait. No need for fisticuffs.

EC Vote

"The Electoral College Votes will be cast and counted on 14 December, which must then be delivered to Vice President Mike Pence, in his capacity as Senate president, by 23 December. When the new Congress is sworn in on 6 January 2021 one of their first tasks will be to officially count the vote and Pence will declare the winner."

So, take it easy on me. I'm not a fearmongerer or anything like that. But, I can't help but note that those advocating for Trump to declare martial law are speaking up now.

So, while I am not saying that this is what will happen, I do question that, if it were to happen, would it happen BEFORE the EC casts it's votes on Dec. 14th? Cuz, it's already Dec. 2nd, and we are fast approaching Dec. 14th.

I hate surprises.

What should I do with my $17?

I notice my SS is going up by $17 in December, in time for Jan. 2021. Whoop-dee-do. It warms the cockles of my heart.

What should I do with it? Pour it into the vast, yawning jaws of my utility payments? Buy more powdered eggs versus real chickens? Stock pile delicacies for my sweet cats (2)? Sneak in more Big Cups? Buy a pair of Size 12s, should I find them? Or...? (Maybe some stocks--but I'm not a privileged insider, like some we know, sooo...)

The Joint Chiefs

So, the news about the B-52 bombers has me edgy. I know that the military conducts many operations that are ordinary. But.

I do not believe Trump is done. I think this whole election clown show has been for something other than the stated reasons. I am worried about what he is doing in the ME.

If he wants to bomb Iran, I don't think he can just do that. For instance, there is that deal about Congress declaring war. I also think that he will fire all the Joint Chiefs first. But, if he fires even one, I am going to really worry--but, I don't clutch pearls.

Tell me it'll be okay.

It isn't over yet. But, today was so good, I'm starting to grin.

Well, on a completely personal note, uh...how soon do you think Joe will implement that proposed Social Security increase? Don't want to push it, but, you know...it would be nice!

I'm allowing myself to remodel the WH post Trump defilement.

First, a deep cleaning with Lysol. Much like the guy on TV who deep cleaned every time he flew on an airplane. A thorough cleansing for Democracy. I would like it filmed and shown in increments, to make it last.

Then, of course, I want the Rose garden redone with new, fresh, luscious flowers of all kinds. Take out the sculpture and concrete. A garden should be a garden. Call in the Four Seasons guys. They have experience with this sort of thing.

Then, I'd like trees planted to replace the trees that Melania had cut down. I'm still po'd about that. I favor pine trees, but any tree that will grow in the fresh, new climate will be acceptable. Trees of color will be cheerful, making for peaceful ambience around this important place.

I'd tend to throw out all gold-colored furniture and drapes. Throw out any gold thrones that are encountered. I favor warm, inviting, homey hues that invite you to sit right down and discuss what's on your mind, and not just put your money in the cash box. And, of course, I'd throw out all the cash boxes.

I'd put in a modern whole house music system, with maybe a diffuser for those times when it's just too tense. And, there should be a place to gather for barbeques and casual, how's by you, gatherings where good ideas for the national welfare are born. No fast food allowed.

In the United States Code (62 stat. 672), Chapter One of Title 3. it says:

Failure to Make Choice on Prescribed Day
§ 2. Whenever any State has held an election for the purpose of
choosing electors, and has failed to make a choice on the day
prescribed by law, the electors may be appointed on a subsequent day in such a manner as the legislature of such State may

Now, Trump is working to get ballots recounted in several states. The certification deadlines are coming up. If they cannot recount those votes in time and they miss the deadline, regardless of the actual tallies showing trends, doesn't it seem as if the US Code will allow per law that the legislatures can bypass everything and put their own Electors in? What will stop them?

I'm puzzled by his hair.

Everybody knew that his hair had to be dyed. Now, all of a sudden he dyed his hair silver grey.

People do stuff like that. But, this guy is very vain. His hair seems shorter, too.

An attempt to blend in? I wonder what color his hair really is.

The election is not over.

It will not be over until the Electoral College votes. Soon, though.

Citizens are beginning to relax. Holidays are almost here. Hot chocolate in the mornings, and cats on your lap, because you are their personal pillow. When they stick their tongues out at you, they are telling you they want to eat. And then you get up before you intended to, because you are then their personal servant. Still. life can be good.

I think the 100 Person Rally was a measuring tool to see if tRump could muster an army. Maybe it was an intimidation tactic, which failed. But, his bizarre actions after the Vote leaves you to wonder what is left to do?

I see a lot of tRump's cronies starting to turn on him. But, are they?

I am still super pumped against tRump. My body is starting to relax. I'll get there. But, it isn't over until the only vote that counts, the EC vote.
