We can enjoy the sweetness of this moment, with zero guilt and tomorrow's problems can, just for today, be looked at tomorrow.

Whatever one thinks of Biden and the Democrats, there is so much joy to be had from appreciating the misery of Trump and his cultists (hi Steve, if you're checking in!). Think of how we felt four years ago. When evil is as miserable as we were, that is good.

We decided to drive through downtown today. It was a street party spilling with joy.

Talked to a friend of mine in DC and he said that honking and cheering was almost immediate after PA was called. Like every major city won the World Series and Super Bowl.

This Four Seasons story is great. Apparently the Trump campaign had planned a “big press conference” at the Four Seasons Hotel in Philadelphia on Saturday. But they accidentally booked it at Four Seasons Total Landscaping, a private business located between a crematorium and a dildo store. Unable to admit their mistake, they went ahead with the press conference in the back parking lot at the landscaping place. :lol:

I think we live in a country where Trump's followers will send him their money to get him out of debt.

Election called AND Depeche Mode inducted into the Rock Hall? Saturday was a good day.

Dave Gahan name-checked the Clash, BTW.

Also, I looked at the front page of this thread and laughed at my naive idiocy:

Seriously, one thing that's good about this election is that thanks to demographics and mortality rates, this is the last presidential election that the Republican appeal to angry white men—basically, Nixon's Southern Strategy or variations of the same, which have been part of every campaign since '68—can be a successful methodology. If it wants to be a viable national party, the GOP will have to abandon (or at least seriously moderate) its racism as campaign strategy and, perhaps, policy.
i mean, Jesus Christ … :oops:
You weren't to know.
If I had a more jaundiced view of humanity, I'd be a better prognosticator, but a more unhappy person. :meh:
This is kind of where I'm at a lot of the time, though I try hard to be more trusting.

Oh definitely. At this point my brain automatically inserts the Curb Your Enthusiasm theme song at the end of every Rudy scene. :mrgreen:

My mom posted this fun pasta:
****I am making this post so it will show back up as a future memory on my timeline:
Today is four days after the 2020 election. Gasoline is currently $2.23 per gallon at Q-T. Interest rates are 2.99% for a 30 year mortgage. The stock market closed at 28,390.18, even though we have been fighting COVID for 9 months. Our GDP growth for the 3rd Qtr was 33%. We had the best economy ever until COVID and it is recovering well. We have not had any new wars or conflicts in the last 4 years. North Korea has been under control and has not been testing any missiles. Isis has not been heard from for over 3 years. The housing market is the strongest in over 20 years without any mortgage fraud (like in 2007). Homes have appreciated at an unbelievable rate and sell within hours of going on the market, with multiple offers. In case our President actually loses this election then I can remind everyone of how great things were economically at one point in our history.
Keep a copy to compare later. 11-7-2020
