A Quick Nap

The joint session of Congress certified the electoral college results over night. Joe Biden is our next President… again… still.

Now our government gets to take a bit of a nap to recharge after a bad day and then the Vice President and the cabinet enact the 25th amendment and remove Trump from power and the House of Representatives starts new impeachment proceedings… right?

My State’s Vote

The Electoral College Vote continues. CNN hasn’t updated the tally in an hour. Are they on a dinner break or something? Can’t we just keep going, please? I want this to end, now.

Anyway, this is a CNN report (more of a blurb, really) mentioning how my state is not a fascist state. We still believe in Democracy here.

Massachusetts casts its 11 electoral votes for Biden

From CNN’s Abigail Sharpe and Adam Levy

Massachusetts’ electors cast their 11 votes for President-elect Joe Biden during their meeting on Monday in Boston.

Biden won about 66% of the vote in the Bay State to President Trump’s 32%. 

While five of Massachusetts’s last six governors have been Republicans, including current Gov. Charlie Baker, the commonwealth hasn’t voted for a Republican for president since 1984.

Presidential elector Linda Monteiro of Boston addressed the gathering on Monday afternoon, marking the importance of this moment as a lifelong Democrat and a daughter of immigrants. She called the Trump administration “ego-centric, divisive and mean-spirited” and stated that she believes the Biden administration will unite the country.

Electoral Stress

The Electoral College is voting today. I’m trying to follow along with the proceedings online. It should not be stressful as we know how each state is going to vote. At least we think we do. Given the nightmare of fascism that has engulfed much of our country, we can’t assume anything.

CNN has the current count at 161 votes for Biden and 158 for Trump. That’s as of about 2:30 PM Eastern time.

I feel like I’m getting an aerobic workout just siting here, waiting for the page to update. Come on Electoral College delegates. Do your jobs. 306 votes for President Elect Joe Biden, please.

Five Days from Today

After reading about the Supreme Court verbally bitch slapping the fascists trying to overturn the Presidential election yesterday it brought on a fresh bout of freaking out about the end of the US as we know it.

December 14th. That’s the next milestone. Five days from today the electoral college votes. That’s the next hurdle to the coup that the nazi cheeto is working on. He’ll still have plenty of time and opportunity to finish destroying American democracy, but it will be that much harder for him to pull it off.

I am not going to relax or stop worrying about the future until that orange flavored prick is out of my White House for good and President Elect Joe Biden is sworn in as our 46th President. That’s January 20th. There is still over a month to go before then.

Join me as I hold my breath in fear.

Yippee.

11 days

The electoral college votes on December 14th. We have 11 days of this bullshit to go. Then we have to wait a couple of weeks for the electoral college votes to be counted by congress. Then we have a few weeks until the inauguration.

Then you’d think the trump disaster would end. You’d think. The reality is that it’s never, ever going to get better.Our country is over. We can’t come back from this. It was fun while it lasted, but it’s over.
