Happy New Shoe Thursday. Wheelizens!

Mac --

BrendaK and I add our good wishes to you and Elena re your procedure on Monday; kindly let us know if there’s anything we can do.

======================

AoSHQ linked this long -- but cogent -- OpEd earlier today; I found it well-worth reading:

https://amgreatness.com/2021/01/19/clarity-in-trumps-wake/

Will read the link Sven posted yesterday when I have some time later.

=======================

Some of you may find this mean-spirited or even un-American:

Fail to the Thief.

We have an actual dotard (remember the Left’s love affair with that word a few years back?) in the White House. I suspect that drooling feeb will not be permitted to pretend to be POTUS for very long.

Let’s see what happens once enough Cabinet members are confirmed to invoke the 25th Amendment.

Yeah…I know where that leads. But I also think that Harris will show what a piece of work she is very quickly by getting even more drunk with power, and acting in a manner likely to chafe many Lefties.

She’s a nasty, corrupt cop with a totalitarian bent who -- I believe -- will piss off a non-trivial percentage of liberals on top of annoying the “normies”.

I’m frightened and furious about the results of this fakey-pretend “election”.

===========================

Lastly, here’s a link to a Twatter thread by a guy I follow who certainly isn’t inclined toward optimism, but I think he makes some excellent points about the future:

BTW -- the “Aristillus” books he wrote are quite good “Heinleinian” science fiction; I backed the Kickstarter for the first two volumes and will do the same for the final two whenever he completes them.

Harper and I enjoyed reading the first one aloud.

Happy Thursday, GN! -- Good morning, Fatwa! Thanks for the link.

I think Harris will get a pass from teh left no matter what she says or does -- she did in California.

Flipping the channels, I see that CNN has dropped their Covid Stats feed and freed up a third of their viewing screen. Funny how that happened now that Biden is napping in the White House.

Sure Happy It’s Thursday, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, Fatwa, and Sven!

Fatwa -- the essay by Angelo Codevilla is well worth the time to read. So was the thread from Corcoran. I must say I’d rather live with the hope that Corcoran brings, even if I don’t live to see it come to fruition, than be resigned to a future of misery for my sons and future generations.

Hi, Sven and Paddy!

I think Harris will get a pass from teh left no matter what she says or does — she did in California.

Not so sure about that; a lot of lib-identifying folks in other parts of the country think CA’s become a bit of a lunatic asylum being run by the inmates and may balk.

We shall see; I think it’s highly unlikely Goofy Uncle Choo-Choo completes his term.

I must say I’d rather live with the hope that Corcoran bring…

Me, too. That thread surprised me, as his general worldview is about as positive as mine.

Glad you both found Codevilla’s screed worth the time.

=====================

For a little diversion, it’s time to play “Where’s Yankel?”:

The fuck you say -- that’s incredibly hard to believe, Fatwa, that anyone would think that the GREAT STATE of CALIFORNIA is anything other than a shining example of prog utopia gained.

Don’t know why the above .gif doesn’t animate until you click on it.
