From Dan Rather: “This is a win for decency and democracy. A new chapter in American history begins today.”
I’m writing this with tears in my eyes. It’s a very emotional time for us. We’ve been holding our breath for four years and can finally exhale.
We can breathe now.
The nightmare really is over. The planets have aligned.
Decency, integrity, and honor has been restored to the people’s White House.
The United States of America has been saved.
Democracy is back on track.
It’s OFFICIAL. They called it.
President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris will take over the helm and repair the damage of the last four years.
We are finally seeing the healing light at the end of a long, dark tunnel.
No fighting, no lawsuits, no rioting by his racist cultists can change the outcome. It’s a mathematical impossibility for them. In addition to winning the popular votes, at this time Electoral College votes are 284-214.
We have been led out of the heart of darkness.
I think we’re gonna shut down our street and have a socially distanced block party.
How are y’all going to celebrate?

I’ve had tears in my eyes all morning ever since I heard PA called for Biden/Harris. I didn’t realize till then how on edge I have been. You called it . . . I can breathe normally again.
Now we all have to send any contributions we can to the Democratic candidates in Georgia.

Dear Princess Rosebud and Jan,
Thank goodness that the four-year madness is (almost) over. Good riddance!
Saving and rehabilitating the USA aside, we also need the political economy of saving the planet. Yet the entrenched and insidious issues of plutocracy have loomed even larger, thus continuing to thwart many efforts mounted to save the planet. Whilst Pluto has been demoted to a dwarf planet, the planet of America has already ascended to plutocracy. Social and economic polarizations can further exacerbate the issues of wealth, and such polarizations are increasing for the following reason: The USA is very much plagued in varying degrees by misinformation, disinformation, post-truth politics, demagoguery, plutocracy, oligarchy, ochlocracy, kleptocracy, narcissistic leadership, neoliberalism and globalization.
The underlying opposition is not so much between the Democrats and the Rupublicans as between the rich plutocrats and the rest of the population. The Democrats need to (re)form their party to unite the 90% of the people living at an entrenched economic and political disadvantage in order to deal with the Plutocrats. In any case, it is going to be a very tall order for Biden to turn things around. It would have been much easier if some Republican senators had been far more honest and incorruptible, for they have been very greedy, uninspired, cowardly and lack criminal, moral and political accountabilities. It is all quite a big mess in danger of getting bigger still. Even a global pandemic still cannot unite folks in the USA and wake them up. Perhaps it will take an even bigger crisis to do so, such as a series of climate change disasters.
I have been featuring an exemplar of a politician, statesman and chancellor so upright and unflinching in their integrity and honesty that if any of those senators had even just a fraction of his goodness and decency to perform their duties and to go against the POTUS, the USA would not have sunk to such an intractable, dangerous and protracted quagmire. The upright character of this particular politician, statesman and chancellor has been immortalized in a poem, which is featured and explained in my newest post at https://soundeagle.wordpress.com/2020/11/11/strong-wind-knows-tough-grass/
This politician, statesman and chancellor had been fired six times and rehired six times, and still he persisted in his upright approach and upstanding ideal. He even surrendered and dedicated his own lands, real estates and military power! If only much more people in the finantial, business and political spheres can learn from the upright character that I feature in my said post. In my own words, this historical figure is the personification of enduring loyalty, integrity, bravery and forthrightness achieved with benevolence and righteousness, but without favouritism and transgression. He was certainly not afraid of being fired half a dozen times.
I would love to have the pleasure of knowing what you think of my said post and read your feedback at the comment section of the post. Thank you in anticipation.
