This is one i keep going back and forth on.

I am one of those who is a little bit love and light and a little bit go f**k yourself.

I want to move forward. There is much work to be done. But it feels like if we don't start holding the big ones at the top accountable that is worse than cleaning the house when the kids are still home.

We have seen videos of black people being killed by the police when they committed no crimes or very minor crimes. But at the same time the ones at the top, in the Bush and Trump administrations who have done so much harm to so many, even the world over and they don't have any consequences at all to pay.

What is that they say about Bernie Maddoff? The only reason he went to prison was because he ripped off rich people, too.

If we don't start holding the ones at the top accountable i think we will just keep seeing them doing worse and worse things because they know they can get away with it.

The trump kids and Bannon, they both got busted for taking money for "charity" and then pocketing it. What would happen to me if i did that? I would like to think i would end up in jail. They are out and about still spewing how wonderful they are.

That don't seem right.

I am sure that my fellow DUers can relate

to being political junkies. My family is a bunch of political junkies!

We have a running thread message: myself, my three young adult kids and my almost 13 year old grandson.
This morning around 6 AM, my son messaged about how close it was in PA. My grandson chimed in with the exact percentage point difference. Then my daughter said "Aren't you supposed to be in a zoom meet?" He is in 7th grade doing all virtual this year. I said I had to screen shot this exchange because it says so much about our family and this year.

This afternoon, my son (age 29) said this: I bet 200,000+ is finally starting to sound like a lot of people to the president.
