Notes from all over

by GDA



Well, it is pretty much history, now. The 2020 United States Presidential Election is winding down fast and it will be one to look back at for years to come. Just think, a president who presided over the biggest economic boom any country has ever had, who closed our borders to illegals, rid us of some bad treaties, shut the North Korean dictator up, put minorities to work in larger figures than ever, brought money back to the United States for investing in jobs that had been kept overseas, made it so anyone who wanted a job had one, and more, and who had 56 percent of the country in a poll say they were better off now than under the former administration, was beaten. To make matters even crazier is the fact that this president had huge leads when the people, for the most part, went to bed, but when they woke up, these leads evaporated.

Yes, Pres. Trump is still fighting, but he knows he lost. I have to believe that if it weren't for the COVID-19 pandemic and the states closing everything down, he would have been a shoo-in. But that is all history, now.

We now have a president-elect who is suffering the first stages of dementia and whose vice president has accused him of being racist and an abuser of women. She also is the only candidate for the Democratic Party for president who never won one contest from any state. That doesn't matter, though. It remains to see who will really be running our government. Multi-billionaire George Soros put together a group of 120 billionaires to put Biden/Harris in office. You have to think he will want something for his efforts. By the way, when I grew up, the Democrats were the poor party and the Republicans had the bucks. Things do change, now.

Bernie (the commie) wants a cabinet seat, probably as Secretary of Labor. New York's Gov. Cuomo is pushing for a cabinet seat, too, maybe as Secretary of State. Will Nancy Pelosi get a cabinet post to end her time in politics? How about Amy Klobuchar as Attorney General?

I do hope that Biden gets out of the basement and into the Oval Office. One thing all Americans should be doing is praying that he does a good job running OUR country. We can't take another Obama Administration where millions quit looking for jobs since there weren't any and where manufacturing jobs left this country in droves. Do you want to go back to $4 to $5 a gallon gasoline? That might happen since Biden has said he would stop fracking in the search for gas and oil. Before Trump, we were an oil importer and now we are exporting it as we have more than we need. Things can change.

Of course, the big question on the minds of many, both Republicans and Democrats, is how long will he be able to be president or will his health and mental capacity take him down?

I do believe that our election process, the way we vote, has to be looked at. This election was a mess. We have to get the people to actually know who they are voting for and not just voting for the letter behind the names. That probably won't happen.

Well, life goes on, no matter what. We had Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton, and many others as president and we survived. This administration will be interesting. Now it is time to get on with the COVID fight. It looks like we have serums that will protect us and they are coming fast. Trump pushed their development and was successful. Of course, we have to get the shots and many won't take shots even if they might help. How many get their flu shots each year?

The COVID-19 surge has started to hit northern Minnesota, but the deaths aren't as high as they once were. One death is too much.

We fought two world wars, a couple of depressions, various epidemics, and we survived. We will survive this Chinese based pandemic. More and more are wearing masks while in large groups. Yeah, I hate them, but.
We are all in this together.
Deer hunting is almost over, though I haven't seen many hunters. Thanksgiving is next week and we have a lot to be thankful for. You have to have faith.
