The ARP passed. Merrick Garland will be AG. It's time to celebrate!

The United States has finally returned to LIBERAL GOVERNMENT.



It has been 52 years since the United States enjoyed truly, liberal government. The last time was during the LBJ Administration (1963-69). At this point, the Biden administration is knocking my socks off. Itís truly liberal in a way that we have not seen in my entire lifespan. I am thrilledócautiously optimisticóno ... thrilled!



Celebration is in order. In honor of the passage of the ARP and the confirmation of Merrick Garland, I offer the following from McFadden & Whitehead:

Ainít No Stoppiní Us Now



At last, we have liberal government again. Itís a massive relief. Tears are appropriate. Dancing works too.

16. I always like Biden when he was a Senator and when he was a VP...met him a number of times...

and talked to him on the phone a couple of times. He is the man for the job as you just said. I knew this even before he decided to run and was thrilled when he ran for the nomination. I was on board from
day one. I would have voted for any of our nominees but I believed and still do that Biden is the only one who could have won and sent the orange menace packing. Laelth, It sure looks like Trump had no intention of rolling out the vaccine...he was going for 'herd' immunity which would never have been achieved and would have cost millions of American lives in the end. We dodged a bullet. As an aside, how you feeling?

18. Happy, despite abject poverty and a very uncertain future.

Passage of the ARP means a hell of a lot to me and the Daughter. We may be able to accumulate enough resources to actually escape from the hell-hole in which we are living. Thank you for asking.

Joe wasnít my first choice in the primaries. I voted for Bernie, but South Carolina changed everything. African-American women said, ďNo. We need Joe,Ē and here we are. Joe is turning out to be the most liberal American president since LBJ, and I am tickled pink. I am genuinely HOPEFUL.

Itís a nice feeling.

I am very much looking forward to Garlandís tenure as AG. Heís got a VALID, personal grudge against the GOP. If he prosecutes them, the Biden administration will be particularly immune to accusations of partisanship.

15. I felt joyous, and yes a little tearful, watching Garland walk into the DOJ building, elbow bumping

his friends there! Happy Days Are Here Again!

17. I still can't recommend posts, but I will do so as soon as I can!

It is such a relief. As a Bernie supporter, Biden is indeed surpassing my expectations! To bet back to what we were before the 80s as a party is what I have been wanting for a while.
