Thanks, Dick. I agree- it's one of the clearest discussions on topic that I've read. Wish more people would take the time to read and understand it!

Happy New Year!

I'm keeping my fingers crossed for the 6th. It's a slim, slim thread - but, at this point it appears to be all we've got. I get all sorts of "news" from various conservative groups on Facebook - from the utterly lunatic fringe to very real-reasoned pieces like the above. It gives me some comfort to know that - for once - a fight IS (or at least seems to be) being waged by the Republicans - but whether we prevail is very much in doubt. The "swamp" is VERY real. Pence HAS the power, but will he use it? If he does, will Congress support our President? Long odds, I'm afraid. It would be great if people like McConnell, who is old and has all the money and power he will ever need, would just shut up and "do the right thing" for their country.

I do not want to have to start flying my flag upside-down on January 21st, but I very well might - or just take it down (after about 40 years) as a sign that I do NOT respect the (apparent) result of the 2020 "election". I was no fan of Obama's, but, in many ways what we are facing now as a nation is FAR worse. As has been said - to paraphrase - it is not the fact that "X" was elected, the real danger lies in an electorate that voted for "X".

What saddens me a lot, to echo your sentiment, Dick, is that the same huge mass of people who voted for Biden are mostly (but not entirely) the same mass of people pushing the stupid mask crap on everyone else. These people won't fight for their freedom anymore.

"Just shut up and wear your damn mask!"

(Similar to "Just bend over and let the govt ream your a**hole bigger!")

Happy New Year!

Scary, real scary, and ultimately may not end well - will we have CW2?

HYN to you and yours as well. Keep calm and carry on.

Well, things are coming down to the finish line but Trump has not conceded, still. My sources tell me that next Tuesday he will move, with the military's backing, and regain legal control over the govt and be inaugurated. Then, the swamp should be drained quite a bit.

The impeachment sham should not be any issue in the senate.

Who knows. I certainly don't but this is what I am going with. It's the only way my wife and I can keep our sanity.

In the meantime, I am sticking close to home and family and keeping my Bug-Out bag full and ready to go. Better to be prepared.

God Bless America!

Wow!! (to say nothing of hurrah!!) Hope your "sources" are correct. Mitch won't start the trial before then, maybe that's why.

Update: Did you see the bit about Mike Lindell (the pillow guy) leaving the WH supposedly with notes in his hand (obtained by enlarging the photos) mentioning the insurrection clause? Then there are the mass military moves. Some say the Chinese are saber-rattling, some say nothing. Trump is out of DC. Tuesday MAY turn out to be an "interesting" (but sad in the big picture) day for our country. We'll just have to wait and see.

Well, nothing today - maybe tomorrow?

Update, 1-20-21 9:00 AM PST: Nope - just more false hopes. We're surely in for it now.

Here's some more smoke to blow up your asp.

It may not be done. Military possibly preparing for arrests for illegal control of the White House.

I may be a conspiracy pusher but I still cannot believe God would allow a takeover of the USA by such evil as we currently have as occupants of the WH.

Still reloading.

Prayers...

Whig, I share your concerns, but am not a particularly religious person. God has "allowed" some pretty bad stuff over the years. I think a more realistic approach would be to hope that enough people wake up and realize what they did, or were led into, and take legal action. Sleepy has already made a large number of people very unhappy. As more rights are taken, more will be angered. How much socialist crap will the people swallow? Impeachment articles have already been filed! Of course, success in that endeavor would provoke something worse, and then, after impeaching Harris as well, worser! Can you say - at the end of a long road - President Pelosi?

We have to work hard to keep the heat turned up, flip Congress in 2022, and hope that a miracle occurs in 2024. Trump is a big question mark, but is also the 1000# gorilla in the room. Will he form a 3rd party? Will he run as an R in 2024? Is he even electable? Who knows?

Will DC and PR become States? Possibly. Guam, Northern Marianas, et al, VERY unlikely. Even the Dems would have to see the hypocrisy there. If Wyoming, Montana, and the Dakotas are irrelevant, then how can an island 5000 miles away from anywhere be? Will the EC be eliminated? No, because the small states won't go for it. The few states that have signed up are the predictable ones which were lost causes anyhow, the list will slow to a trickle and run aground well short.

Enough gloom for the day. Keep the faith, my friend.

All valid concerns, Dick. I'm not religious at all but very spiritual, which is totally different. The religious institutions are as much at fault for where we are as anything else. They are mostly concerned with maintaining their non-profit status and donations and building social networks that keep the money flowing. They have not stood up to the tyranny that has taken over the educational institutions and entertainment industries and they have allowed God to be taken out of our lives. the fact that most churches are readily abiding by the mask mandates is crazy but illustrative of what I am stating.

But, the faith will be kept, no matter what!
