This old grey-haired gentleman keeps me guessing. The nights I expect him, I worry when he will show up, and he never does. The nights I think he won’t bother to come, he surprises me. Sometimes he simply crawls into my bed and I awaken to find him there. Softly sleeping next to me.
"He says it’s going to be 'an exciting new world' for us, but I am sentimental and stuck on the familiar stairs I climb to my office and the tiny kitchen in which I cook. They say 'home is where the heart is' and my heart has been here for a long, long time"
Fathers have a hard time of it, expected to be all things to everyone in the family; expected to be both strong and gentle at the same time. To be a father can take a man by surprise. It can elevate his life or, in some men's opinions, ruin it. The thing to remember about fathers is that they gave you more than you can ever give back to them, especially your genes and peculiarities!
After Democrats and Republicans laid out their arguments, the Senate voted 57 guilty and 43 not guilty, not enough to convict the former president of incitement to insurrection. Donald Trump is therefore not barred from running again in 2024 if he so wishes. Trump supporters were happy at the result and the Democrats were dismayed.
The price is high but it is an opportunity for innovation and growth.
President-elect Joseph R. Biden proposed last week a $1.9 trillion rescue package to combat the economic downturn in the US and the Covid-19 crisis. “During this pandemic, millions of Americans, through no fault of their own, have lost the dignity and respect that comes with a job and a paycheck,” said Biden. The Biden rescue proposal would be financed entirely through increased federal borrowing and comes from the idea that the virus and the recovery are intertwined.
"I wish Trump’s $2000 dollar stimulus had been approved, but $600 dollars is better than nothing in times like these!"
"Well, it’s that time of year when we all think about what we’re going to resolve to do in the New Year 2021. But this time around we have Covid-19 to contend with, in spite of the new vaccines that are soon to become readily available. I guess the only resolution I can really accomplish this year is to be a better person and help the homeless and the hungry. That’s a resolution with which we can all agree."
Melania Trump sure went all out to decorate the White House this year for Christmas. Meanwhile, her husband, President Donald Trump, continues to dispute Joe Biden’s electoral win for the Presidency of the USA. This is Trump’s last Christmas in the White House unless he runs again in 2024 and wins. Meanwhile, the New Year will bring a new season, a new dynamic, and a new Administration to the House of the People.
The spirit of compromise underlay Joe Biden’s victory speech this past weekend, as he won the 270 electoral votes necessary to become the 46th President of the United States come 20 January 2021. He said he had sought the nation’s highest office “to rebuild the soul of America, to rebuild the backbone of this nation, the middle class, and to make America respected around the world again.” Meanwhile, Donald Trump has filed several lawsuits, alleging voter fraud.
