I realize I am preaching to the choir, but what I am seeing with 45 sycophants still stuns me.
A bankrupt, adjudged sex offender, convicted felon who cheated on various wives and a draft dodger.
What still gets to me was that video of all his staff, sitting around the table telling him how blessed he is.
I’m scared he may get reelected and take away all the rights of my LGBTQ children. My daughters and granddaughters have less rights than my wife did.
Don’t ever ask me how 30’s Germany was taken in by Hitler, we are watching it here.

Had a bad dream. What if SCOTUS is waiting to see is TFG wins, then if yes, on the day after inauguration say the president has immunity?
Then of course if Biden wins, no immunity.

Tell me I'm being paranoid, please.

Switch Gaming System

My wife and I were given a Switch Gaming System for Christmas from our children.
Assuming we know nothing much, what’s a good game to start.
Also worth joining Nintendo online?

UAW Strike

Please keep my son and his family in your thoughts. He is a UAW employee who gave up so much during the 08 crisis, and it's about time they gave back. Mary Barra got a 40% pay bump, but not good enough for the workers?
Also, I'm a GM salaried retiree who had my benefits taken away.

Benjamin Netanyahu says he will meet with Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis in Israel

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Sunday that he’d “of course” meet with Ron DeSantis during a high-profile trade mission as the Florida governor weighs a presidential bid.

Two fascists meeting, who want to be dictators. DeathSantis is dead politically.

Update for Demsrule86

My beautiful wife, as you know, is in the hospital with heart issues. She was ready to have her valve replaced, in the operating room, when her temperature went up. Had to stop, thankfully before any incisions were done. She currently on antibiotics for pneumonia. Operation should be next week. Any prayers, good vibes, good karma, good thoughts greatly appreciated.
She is my whole world.

Tulsa King

On Paramount +.
If you like mobster soap operas, this will be too your liking. Sly Stallone is a way better actor in this, than anything else I saw him in.
The series was much better than I thought it would be. Also, found out there will be a season 2.
