    Biden's pretty aggressive in his first days, purging Trump loyalists at the VOA, NLRB, NSA.

    On that front, he's belied the rather crass and ageist assumptions people had of him (both on the right and left spectrum) as this doddering old man (it surprised me that Bernie supporters used this insult specifically because if he'd become President, the shoe would fit him too).

    I will say that the wisdom of backing experience and traditional government virtues on election is bearing fruit considering how swiftly Biden's operation have taken over in the last three days. A less inexperienced POTUS would likely still be gathering their bearings at this point, while Biden has quickly taken charge of the COVID relief operation.

    Huh?!?

    The first Godzilla movie came after World War II and it was about Hiroshima and Nagasaki, and it was released in a Japan where the Emperor (as he had been during WW2 and before) had become a total figurehead of no consequence.

    Here’s an interview with a couple of Trumpers who expressed no regrets about the terrorist attack that occurred on Jan 6th 2021.

    That era is called the Showa Era, the next is Heisei, then we have Millennium series, and the current era, Reiwa.

    Japan often refers to Godzilla films by the era of who was emperor.

    I think they, the poster, were referencing names of film eras.

    Not ideologies ...

    Oh, WBE! The funniest part of this is how people in Oklahoma would have to purchase a Bigfoot hunting license. But maybe that's what's really behind this, an attempt to grab money from the rubes.

    There's a reason I've profiled Justin Humprhey before, I reckon.

    I wonder if Paul Rand realizes he's outing himself as a racist.

    Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul says Biden is ‘calling us racist’ in inauguration speech

    If you read his speech and listen to it carefully, much of it is thinly-veiled innuendo calling us white supremacists, calling us racists, calling us every name in the book, calling us people who don’t tell the truth

    Which Members of Congress Have Tested Positive for the Coronavirus

    At least 63 sitting members of Congress — more than one in nine— have tested positive for the coronavirus or are believed to have had Covid-19 at some point since the pandemic began. The list includes 44 Republicans and 19 Democrats.

    Nine have tested positive since the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol, when many members were holed up in a secure location together and some refused to wear masks, angering several Democrats, including Representative Pramila Jayapal of Washington, who later tested positive. Congress’s attending physician said it was possible members were exposed while sheltering from the siege and recommended they get tested.

    The overall infection rate among current senators and representatives surpasses the national known infection rate of 6.5 percent, though many more cases have likely gone undetected in the general population.

    Well ... if you identify with the traitors, you might be a racist nut bag.

    Don't know why that is hard for him to understand?

    Yea, I figured that Biden's many years in Goverment would be an asset to him starting off Running, but this sprit he is on has been Very Impressive and that does shows that knowing how Washington works does give you legs-up on how to get to work more effectively and with faster results.

    THIS was ontop of how the Trump cronies in DC where since the election trying to do everthing they can to hamstring and not incude Biden and his team in most transistion powers and info. Yet still Biden's team got off to this start even with that, that is something to be impressed by.
