Now that the cases have been dismissed, and the U.S. Supreme Court twice rejected fake claims, and the electors voted, Biden is Prez elect.

Trump will still claim fraud but that is irrelevant to reality...

Will his base start a civil war over the orange one? We shall see.

Despite the pandemic were some good developments in 2020.

Trump was shown be inept by a virus. Covid 19 may have saved democracy in the USA.

Joe Biden is decent, normal and moderate. The GOP failed turn him into a cartoon or a punching bag despite major attempts to lie and cheat.

The excess force of a few cops will lead to some reforms in policing. Not defunding police, but more review and more firing of excessive force cops.

The stock market rewarded brave and lucky investors.

The courts rejected non factual lawsuits of Trump. etc.

Only 27 Republican lawmakers in Congress acknowledge Democrat Joe Biden’s win over Donald Trump in the U.S. presidential election, according to a Washington Post survey released on Saturday Dec. 5, 2020.

Of all Republicans in Congress, roughly 88% -- or 220 lawmakers -- would not say who won the election, and two lawmakers said Trump won, the survey found.
The results come nearly a month after NBC News projected Biden as the winner.

The GOP is a cult believing alternatives facts, formerly known as lies and delusions.

How does democracy work with insane people leading one of two political parties?

Not well... Insanity does not run there, it gallops. Biden will try to ignore the craziness, but that does not solve the problem. Most Trump voters still think Trump really won... He did not even if he thinks so.

Sore loser is not enough to describe total denial of reality. Even Bill Barr did not see any large scale fraud, and angered Trump for telling the truth. No legit Governor will overturn the results of his state. No law suit has won for Trump.

So how does the GOP acknowledge reality? On Dec. 14 when the electoral college votes? On Jan. 20, 2021 when Biden is sworn in? Never? When does reality become real for them?

Can you overlook politics in pursuit of love? For many the answer is no. Sad but true. Being on the same team seems to help people feel like they are seeing the world the same way. The differences between the GOP and the Dems are too stark these days.

Hard to avoid feeling the world views are not compatible. There are a few moderates left, but not too many.

Stocks seem to keep going higher despite the current poor economy. They say the stock market looks ahead about six months so that makes some sense if true. By June many will have immunity to Covid 19 through infection or vaccination.

There is a good chance for recovery if we can stay alive until June 2021. I plan to do so, and hope you will too...

In 2000 Florida was the key to get George W. Bush into the White House.

In 2020 there were ten swing states and Biden won most of them. Trump lost the popular vote by more than five million votes. The delusional opine without any evidence that the votes were stolen. These fact free speculations are just sore losers whining in the wind.

Among other things we have Covid 19 and Trump's lying about its seriousness to thank for Trump being the year's big loser. The big bully fell to a virus. So bigly the fall to such a smallie.

Now the GOP is busy fighting each other in Georgia, which may hand control of the Senate to the Dems. A fitting end to a strange and bizarre year. We shall see.

The excess deaths show the real death toll is closer to 300,000 by Nov. 3, 2020. The deaths could mount higher before the vaccines protect us all. Wear your masks, keep your distance for a few more months before you get the vaccine and live to tell the story to your grandkids....

Dr. Fauci advice

An edited summary of Dr. Fauci's advice from the NYT interview:

Dr. Fauci, a straight shooter, with no conflicts of interest — political or financial — at 79, no big career ambition. So I asked him how Americans might live in the next six nine months.

Are a few things you think a Biden administration should do on Day 1?

were some states in some regions of the country that didn’t learn the lessons when New York City and other big cities got . Fundamental public health measures: simple things like uniform wearing of masks, keeping physical distance, avoiding crowds (particularly indoors), doing things outdoors as much as possible, and washing hands frequently, not shutting down the country. You can still have an economic recovery, if you just do those simple things.

Do you think we need a national policy like a national mask mandate?

The current administration has left Covid-19 management the states.
I think should be universal wearing of masks. If we can accomplish that with local mayors, governors, local authorities, fine. If not, we should seriously consider national. The reason that I shy away from making a strong recommendation is that mandates from the national level down can cause push back from people do not like be told what to do.

People often think of shutdowns as binary. You’re open or you’re shut. Often, when you answer questions about how to live, you start with, ‘Well, I’m in a high-risk group….”

The reason I answer with some degree of trepidation is because the people own businesses get very upset with me. are some essential businesses that you want keep open, like grocery stores, supermarkets and gas stations.

We’re heading into the winter. You could social distance in a restaurant or in an indoor gathering. But would you feel OK being in without a mask?

With so many infections now, I would feel quite uncomfortable even being in a restaurant, particularly if it was at full capacity.

I see you’ve been getting your hair cut. What do you think about hair salons?

I used get a haircut every five weeks. I get a haircut every weeks now. With a mask on me and a mask on the person cutting my hair.

Transportation?

It depends on your individual situation. If you are at high risk, don’t travel anywhere. If you must go, drive your own car, by yourself. Don’t get on a crowded subway, a crowded bus, or fly in an airplane. If you’re a 25-year-old with no underlying medical conditions, that’s much different.

Bars?

Bars are a real big problem. If you at some outbreaks we’ve seen, ’s when people go into crowded bars. I used to like to sit at a bar and grab a hamburger and a beer. But when you’re at a bar, people are leaning over your shoulder, people are right next to each other. It’s fun and social. So I would to clamp down on bars for the time being.

Some airlines and some states are telling people you to get a coronavirus test before you get on the plane or visit another state. Does that make sense medically?

If you’re negative when you get on the plane — except in the rare circumstance that you’re in that little incubation window before you turn positive — that’s a good thing.
If you had a national plan for testing, what would it be?
Surveillance testing. Literally flooding the system with tests. Getting a home test that you could do yourself, that’s highly sensitive and highly specific. And you know why that would be terrific? Because if you decided to have a small gathering with your mother-in-law and father-in-law and a couple of . The test isn’t 0 percent. Don’t let the perfect be the enemy of the good. The risk, if all are tested before you gather for dinner, dramatically decreases.

are a number of vaccine candidates that are promising. But ’s also a lot of skepticism. Is OK take a vaccine? And which one?

’s easy when you have vaccines that are 95 percent effective. Can’t get much better than that. I think what people need appreciate is the process. The company looks at the data. I look at the data. Then the company gives the data the F.D.A. The F.D.A. career scientists are really independent. Then ’s another independent group, the Vaccines and Related Biological Products Advisory Committee. The F.D.A. commissioner vowed he will follow the opinions of F.D.A. career scientists and the advisory board.

When do you think we’ll be able throw our masks away?

I think that we’re going have some degree of public health measures like masks with the vaccine for a considerable period of time. But we’ll start approaching normal — if the overwhelming majority of people get vaccinated — as we get into the third or fourth quarter of 2021.

How come the GOP did so well in the House and Senate while Trump lost? An idea from the NYT suggests it is the stimulus money that helped the GOP!

It is the cash that people like! So give them cash...

At the end of March, 2020 Trump signed the Cares Act, which distributed more than half a trillion dollars in direct aid to more than 150 million Americans, from stimulus checks ($1,200 per adult and $500 per for households below a certain income threshold) to $600 per week in additional unemployment benefits. These programs were not perfect but they made an impact regardless. Personal income went up and poverty went down, even as the United States reported its steepest ever quarterly drop in economic output.

Americans received as much assistance as they did because Democrats fought for it over the opposition of Republicans who believed any help beyond the minimum would degrade the will to work for low wages employers were willing to pay. “The moment we go back to work, we cannot create an incentive for people to say, ‘I don’t need to go back to work because I can do better someplace else,’ ” Senator Rick Scott of Florida argued on the floor of the Senate.

But low-propensity voters who voted for Trump aren’t attuned to congressional debate. They did not know — and Democrats didn’t do a good job of telling them — that Trump and the GOP opposed more generous benefits. All they knew is that Trump signed the bill (and the checks) giving them cash.
The Republican Party’s strong performance can be explained simply by the fact that it was in power when the government put a lot of money into the hands of a lot of people who didn’t have it before.

The Biden administration should just embrace giving needy people cash!

Trump's lawsuits

About or 20 of Trump's law suits have been dismissed by judges around the country so far. None of them would change the outcome of the election.

Oddly enough Biden will get 206 electoral votes, the same number Trump won in 20. Trump called his 20 victory a landslide! So Biden also has a landslide by that measure.

The GOP is harming the country by delaying the transition, but Biden already is an old hand at the political game and will be ready on January 20, 2021.

Trump can get ready for the civil and criminal lawsuits against him....

Gay marriage?

Justice Alito is a right wing conservative judge on the U.S. Supreme Court. He gave a speech to a right wing group complaining about liberals not liking his views. Not surprising. The U.S. Supreme court not has 6 right wingers and 3 liberals left, while a majority of Americans are moderate or liberal. Alito is a sore winner.

He was mad about allowing gays to marry, among other things. Since gay sex was held to be legal in private between consenting adults marriage seems to be obviously equally legal, if you want to treat people fairly. Why not let gay people love each other and be a legal couple? How are non-gay people harmed by letting gay people marry? If marriage is a good thing, then more marriages is better.

Single people miss out on many tax breaks and other advantages. They should be annoyed with the better treatment of married people. But gay marriages are less then ten percent of the marriages. So do single people protest straight marriage? No, they want to get married. At least until they marry....

Trump shows the modern approach to the problem. Cheat on your spouse as he has done in all marriages of Trump. Problem solved.

Free money

Basic income, free money from NYT:

Enjoying life is no trivial matter for the slight, serious Mr. Bohmeyer, whose experimental, grass-roots platform has thus far given more than 650 randomly-selected people 1,000 euros a month, around $1,165, for a year, no strings attached, just to test a thesis. Namely, that what people need to thrive in a rapidly changing world is not more money, but more security, and that an unconditional basic income — a monthly sum to cover living expenses that, if implemented, would be paid by the government and received by everyone — could enable this.

The idea has resonated in Germany, a wealthy country that spends about a third of its G.D.P. on a robust social welfare system. In the six years since Mr. Bohmeyer first called for donations “My Basic Income” has raised about €8 million, thanks to 140,000 or so private donations of sums as low as a couple of euros a month.

Now, after publishing a best-selling book detailing the experiences of a cross-section of recipients — ranging from a hotel heiress to a homeless man — Mr. Bohmeyer and his team have partnered with the respected German Institute for Economic Research in Berlin for a study. As part of this “pilot project,” 120 randomly chosen people will receive €1,200 a month for three years, while a larger control group of “statistical twins” in similar life situations will not. When the call for applications went out in August, a million people signed up in less than three days.

Given its small size, the study does not look at macroeconomic impacts, like how taxes would be affected or if a basic income would lead to inflation. Rather, it will simply try to find out whether unconditional monthly payments lead to statistically significant changes in recipients’ behavior and feelings. “Is there a dark side?” asked Mr. Schupp, noting that in recent polls, about half of Germans found the concept good, in principle. “Or do we get confirmation of the nice stories in Michael Bohmeyer’s book?”

To write “What Would You Do? How an Unconditional Basic Income Changes Us,” Mr. Bohmeyer and his co-author took 10 days to travel through Germany interviewing 24 recipients, past and present. In keeping with the findings of other basic income studies around the world, they found that few people quit their jobs. Many, however, made changes — a social worker used the extra resources to retrain as a hospice worker, and a just-treading-water retiree quit her off-the-books job waitressing for an exploitative boss and got another job at a better restaurant.

Regardless of whether they spent the money, saved it, invested it or gave it away, almost all of the people interviewed said the monthly payments just made them feel better. “We call it the ‘basic income feeling,’”

Biden wins

those who did not think it could happen... It did. Biden won. With some help from Covid 19 which Trump bungled. We paid a big price but we got rid of a would be king.

Sadly 70 million Americans voted for Trump even though he showed fascist and autocrat tendencies. That so many in the U.S. do not care about democracy and the history of the U.S. is troubling. Hard to keep a democracy when many do not care for our form of government.

So what will Biden do? His plans are well known:

President-elect Joe Biden is planning to quickly sign a series of executive orders after being sworn into office on Jan. 20, immediately forecasting that the country’s politics have shifted and that his presidency will be guided by radically different priorities.

He will rejoin the Paris climate accords, according to those close to his campaign and commitments he has made in recent months, and he will reverse President Trump’s withdrawal from the World Health Organization. He will repeal the ban on almost all travel from some Muslim-majority countries, and he will reinstate the program allowing “dreamers,” who were brought to the United States illegally as , to remain in the country, according to people familiar with his plans.

Although transitions of power can always include abrupt changes, the shift from Trump to Biden — from one president who sought to undermine established norms and institutions to another who has vowed to restore the established order — will be among the most startling in American history.
Biden’s top advisers have spent months quietly working on how best to implement his agenda, with hundreds of transition officials preparing to get to work inside various federal agencies. They have assembled a book filled with his campaign commitments to help guide their early decisions.

Biden is planning to set up a coronavirus task force on Monday, in recognition that the global pandemic will be the primary issue that he must confront. The task force, which could begin meeting within days, will be co-chaired by former surgeon general Vivek H. Murthy and David Kessler, a former Food and Drug Administration commissioner.

There has also been a recognition of those around him that he may have to lean more on executive actions than he had once hoped. He can reorient various federal agencies and regulations, and he can adopt a different posture on the world stage.

I expect Biden will also increase support for Obamacare and expand its scope. A tax of one dollar on anyone without health insurance and using these funds for Obamacare will make moot the GOP case to destroy Obamacare pending in the U.S. Supreme Court.

We will see if hope conquers fear.

Trump knows he will lose the popular vote. So he does not want to have the mail in votes counted after Nov. 3.

In Texas Trump sued to block the drive in ballots. 127,000 of them. The Texas Supreme Court twice said drive in ballots are valid. Trump is now trying block them in Federal court. Lost again before the District court judge. Trump intends to appeal. He should lose again.

What kind of monster tries suppress valid votes? The GOP Trump kind.

The election is still going on to count the votes. That is normal. Trump claims fraud, with no evidence of fraud. Trump lies again. The new normal.

Hard to understand the appeal of Trump to a normal human thinking person.

Trump loves the low information voter, and they love Trump back.

Biden and Harris will return us decency and reality. Apparently that is battle.

If the votes are counted, Biden should win. Biden is ahead in electoral votes in the called state races. Up to Wis, PA and Michigan again... Or Nevada, AZ and a few more.
