Thanks for popping in. Just had Grace on Facetime, in tears. Happy tears. Massive relief. The Official News just announced that Joe Biden has won the 2020 US Presidential Election.
Grace opened her apartment window in Brooklyn for us – and the whooping, cheering, clapping and bibbing was so loud! It’s like the lid came off, and New York can breathe again.
Then Mark called from San Francisco. They just woke up to the good news too. So we had a group family cheer. Celebrating Dave’s 65th Birthday. And as he put it, “what a great Birthday present”.
If you’re reading this and you disagree, if you think Trump should have been voted in again, that this is not the best outcome, then hey. That’s your opinion – and this is mine. Hallelujah and THANK GOD that democracy has triumphed.
Finally, no more daily dose of drama and drivel from the Whitehouse, no more barely literate ranting, no more anger-inciting, divisive racist bullshit. It will take years to mop up the mess this madman has made, but at least we are living in the solution now.
If you think that the US President has nothing to do with us here in little old England, again, that’s your opinion. I would argue that the man in the hotseat in Washington DC – whoever he/she is – has massive influence. And that’s my opinion.
I am a socialist to the core. Always have been, always will be. Nothing new here. Don’t usually discuss politics publicly; there’s always somebody waiting to have a pop, waiting to rant. You wouldn’t believe the vile messages I get to read when I stray from the papercraft path! But today, I’ll stand up and be counted. Today I put my VOTE FOR BIDEN sticker in my window. TODAY I am cheering with my kids in New York and San Francisco. I am cheering with Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. I am cheering with every democrat in the USA.
The world to me just feels a little less mental this evening, as though some kind of sanity has been restored.
Congratulations to Joe Biden and his team.
