Tales From The Drop Box Episode 184 (2020-32) A New Dawn In America And The End Of The Reign Of Terror /BLM/Pandemic Episodes

President-Elect Biden!!!. Well, I can stop holding my breathe after Biden pulled out a win for democracy. I am truly thankfully that a resounding majority of the American populous decided that decency, honor, truth, and the rule of law were more important than demagoguery, corruption and sociopathic narcissism from a crime family that operated the U.S. for the past four years. I am still markedly disturbed that almost 1/2 of the country voted for that sack of shit masquerading as a human, but hopefully once the stench is removed from the people’s house we can all move forward, find common ground, and operate in the best version of a democratic society. So, to those who voted for Biden – Thank You. For those Republicans who repudiated the former president’s message of hate and lawlessness a big Thank You is also in order.

Given how close the race was in a number of states, it is important to note the importance of every single vote. Every vote counted is a vote for democracy. When every vote is tallied, I am confident that the margins in battleground states will be larger for Biden. This election was a mandate for a different type of presidency. The country is still clearly divided on policy but with a stable individual as president I am hopeful bi-partisanship will be the form of governance. That is, with a unity message from President-Elect Biden, we can now, together, begin to truly confront the issues that are out-of-control in America, namely, the COVID-19 pandemic, systemic bias and racism in our government and society as a whole, and the unemployment crisis affecting our nation as a consequence of COVID-19 and a republican senate that truly did not give a shit about people. Hopefully cooperation is the order of the day as that is what it is going to take to end each of these inter-related emergent threats that easily could return us to chaos.

Tales From The Drop Box Episode 156 (2020-04) The Pandemic Episodes

And the pandemic continues … . I never thought I’d ever have to use the word “pandemic” in a sentence. As some areas of the country begin to open up their businesses and try to gain some economic activity, I find it somewhat distressing to discover that I am curious about how willing our politicians are to engage in a potential lethal social experiment.  Certainly some citizens will lose their lives as we move forward, the unaddressed question being – “How many?” Hopefully the death rate from this latest virus declines and the country, which has been largely cast adrift by the staggering incompetence of the White House, somehow finds not only relief from the deadly virus but also rediscovers its soul. I’m not so confident about the last statement. COVID-19 deaths have converted individuals into mere numbers uprooted from the tragedy of each individual’s death.

Hopefully, you’ll find some joy in this episode – Episode 156 of Tales From the Drop Box. Take care my friends. Stay safe.
