Some people I know are acting like putting 2020 behind us is the end all be all. Nothing changed yesterday except we changed some numbers on a calendar.
We must not forget that.
January 20th will be a fabulous day, but it brings with it many hardships and struggles. We must all work hard to get through them together as a Democratic nation. I expect NO help or assistance from the repugs. Quite the opposite.

There is an app that converts Twitter threads into a long unrolled page - it's called the "Thread Reader App" - that's what I'd like to see happen.

Steve’s kind of a terrifying read sometimes. I’m really glad he’s a warrior for the republic.

...back when Steve was still officially on Team Evil.

We have plenty of people who have called it right, have excoriated the Republicans for what they are, have plenty of great, entertaining quotes, but instead of being elevated for all that, they've been consigned to a dustbin while everybody claps for NeverTrumpers for finally noticing things that were self-evident 20 years ago.

Such actions are a grievous sin against America democracy and a brutal betrayal of their oaths of office and duty. They will be desecrating the blood sacrifices of 13 generations of American Patriots of all creeds and origins who died so that our children could be free. 6/

Every single GOP member of the House who says Biden won in a rigged election was just elected on the same ballots.

They should refuse to be seated if they believe the election was rigged.

RIght?
