We the People of the United States of America have chosen sanity over chaos, compassion over hate, intellect over buffoonery, and respect over mockery and false bravado.  We the People have chosen Joe Biden to be the next president of the United States.  We have chosen well.





To say that I am relieved would be an understatement — I am, for the first time in a long time, joyous.  I think that CNN’s Van Jones speaks for me and hundreds of thousands of others in this clip from this morning’s news …

The next 74 days will be … beyond trying … they may well be nightmarish, as the incumbent refuses to accept his loss and attempts to destroy as much as he can of this nation.  But, at the end of the day, he will leave the White House on 20 January, never to return.  He has earned a place in the history books as the worst, most corrupt, most damaging president in the history of this nation.

Now go forth and enjoy your weekend — we finally have something to celebrate!

    • Thanks, Michael! It won’t be a smooth transition time, and the first two years will be rocky without cooperation from the Senate, but at least now there is hope that we can begin to undo the damage of the last four years, and hope that the people of this country may begin to heal the wounds that divide us.

        • Yes it’s for the whole USA but the GOP majority are used to filling their pockets with illicit gains from tRump, don’t expect that to change overnight. After all the House switched to blue 2 years ago and they haven’t managed to get a lot passed in the Senate. Even after proving tRump was a criminal and should be removed the Senate (narrowly I admit) refused to impeach.

          • Our Congress has become too focused on ‘Party’ and not enough on ‘Policy’. I don’t look for that to change much as long as large corporate donors can buy politicians, thanks to the Supreme Court’s Citizens United decision.

            • Our Parliament was hung for the last 3 elections (2010, 2015 and 2017) the only reason the corporations scored heavily in 2019 was because they turned the election away from austerity (which they caused while lining their pockets) into a Brexit election. People had become fed up with the delays so 37% of those who voted gave the Conservatives an 81 seat majority. The remaining 63% voted for parties who would have kept us in Europe.

  1. How happy and relieved you must be feeling my friend! And relieved to know that your democratic institutions have held firm under the great pressure of the last week. It is so good to see the people out on the streets dancing and celebrating. I hope you are celebrating too! ~happy hugs~

    • In all honesty, I don’t think I have ever in my life felt a greater sense of relief than I felt when I first heard the news this morning (yesterday morning). I have quietly celebrated today, for I know that the path ahead is going to be long and rocky, but at least now we have hope. Thanks for caring, my friend. HUGS!!!


  2. Hi Jill! YES!!!!! A friend of mine sent me a string of blue hearts and fireworks while I was cooking dinner, and I responded with question marks, and then she just texted: They called it. 🙂
    One can feel the ripples of relief all over Europe. A lot of governments have already sent their felicitations over the pond. We are still a bit wary of what will happen in the next few days (weeks? months?), but mostly we are all very, very relieved. – Welcome back, friends! We have missed you! You did it!!! HUGS&CHEERS

    • I woke to the news this morning and … you might think I did a happy dance, and I did, but first I cried. The relief … the enormous relief … I’ve never felt anything like it before! You are right to be leery … 73 days until Joe Biden will take the oath of office, and during that time, I fully expect Trump to destroy as much as he can. His mentor, Roy Cohn, told him once that if he was losing at checkers, he should simply overturn the checkerboard. I think he will do everything and anything he can to overturn our ‘checkerboard’, so it will not be a peaceful two-and-a-half months, but at least now there is light at the end of the tunnel. We’ve missed you too, my friend!!! Love ‘n hugs!!! 💖


  3. Yes, we did it! It took 5 years of working our butt off to try to make people see the truth. Unfortunately, a large percentage still refuse to see it.
    I am still in shock of the hatred & bigotry in this country, but also very proud of the other side that believes #LoveIsLove”! ❤ ❤ ❤
    My insomnia may be gone for good!

    • Yes, I am still appalled by the large number of people who were willing … nay, eager … for another 4 years of the sadistic cruelty under which we’ve lived for the past four. But, hopefully this is the beginning of a time of healing, of reversing some of the damage that has been done. I’m not sure my insomnia will ever be gone for good, for the forces that put Trump in office still remain, but … we’re on the right path, or will be in 73 days.


  4. Be prepared for Hysterics and the biggest flood of Wacky-Doodle Konspiracy nonsense you have ever encountered.
    While Biden remains dignified and very presidential we can but hope that Trump exceeds himself in immaturity (even by his standards!) and the professionals in the GOP begin to quietly edge away, some reaching out to Biden and saying:
    ‘Ssso. What are you bringing to the table Mr President-Elect….Hmm…I think we can work with that,’.
    I am waiting to see all my predictions shredded and thrown out along with Trump’s BS….I would love to be wrong.

  5. Well, my friend, you and your fellow Americans did it. Congratulations!!! There is a lot of work ahead of you, but we up here know you can do it!! Plus, I am also happy because I really didn’t have enough room in my house for all my American family and friends…

    • We did do it, didn’t we! There is a tough road ahead, but we’ve at least made the decision to restore integrity to our nation and earn back the respect we once had. Heh heh … if Trump had won, I was going to ask if the offer of your basement was still open!


  6. Jill, this is a major step forward for our country. Of course, there will be more machinations from the incumbent, but there is an increasing number of Republican leaders who have noted while its within the rights of the president to ask for recounts, per state laws, or bring litigation, they have chastised Trump for alleging wide-spread fraud.

    • Oh, you are right about the incumbent, but my thoughts today are that we all need to simply ignore his rhetoric, his ranting and temper tantrums. We MUST pay attention to what he does, but what he says on Fox or Twitter is irrelevant. Biden’s win is strong enough that it won’t be changed by recounts or lawsuits. He has won the election fair and square, and on January 20th, Trump will leave, one way or another.
