I started doing this 16 years ago after the American electorate committed an act of supreme self destruction and gave the Shrubbery a second 4 years to screw things up. It would appear that people are becoming aware that Republicans just can’t help themselves and attempt to destroy the nation every time they are given a chance to sit in the Oval Office.

Clinton left the Shrubbery with budget surpluses and the Shrubbery left Obama with the Global Financial Crisis. Obama left Trump with a growing economy and Trump leaves Biden with a crippled economy and over a quarter million dead Americans.

As long as I can I will respond to the important things: the World Cup, the Iditarod & Yukon Quest, Tour de France, and tropical storms.

Politics are the static in life’s radio, so you have to deal with them. You try to ignore them until you can no longer hear the music.

And I have been annoying you almost as long! 😈 Lucky you. 🤭😏

Seriously my friend… I don’t know how you do it all. You have impressed me for well over a decade. if the rest of the USA had your core strengths, it wouldn’t be in the deep cesspit it’s in now.

And thanks. You’ve helped me more than you may know. And I suspect others here also and over the years. I am in your debt. 👍

Thank you, Kryten although you overstate the case. I believe in facts and fairness. I enjoy fantasy but not in governments or law enforcement. Primates are born with a sense of fairness as shown in studies with monkeys, so being unfair requires perverting your core knowledge.

You and I have dealt with real life and death issues, so these calls for violence from politicians strikes a sour chord. One of my neighbors is a rabid Trump supporter accused me of gloating because Biden won. I bought her a coloring book and colored pencils and she stopped talking about politics. I never discuss politics and never mentioned who I voted for, but I require masks around me and seat belts if I give people a ride so I’m assumed to be a Democrat. It doesn’t occur to them that I know that masks and seat belts save lives – it’s not a matter of belief; it’s a matter of knowledge.

Hopefully the next four years will be better than the last four. That’s not a lot to ask considering 2020. 😈
