— comes new strength and new thoughts. Eleanor Roosevelt
The First Day
While we are forced to live in a weak and crippled America for the next nine months, until Biden is sworn in as president, we can hold hope of a rapid restart. Knowing that the political appointees will be submitting their resignations, and that a competent new administration will accept those, gives hopes to a cleansing post haste. As there is a lack of appointments now, a deliberate act by the person in the White House and the far right group hoping to establish a dictatorship. We should expect Biden will be able to prepare a thousand new names, ready to fill the empty positions the minute he is sworn in.
As this week begins there is a slight peek past election day that the Dems will have the Senate majority. There is also hope that one Moscow Mitch will be out too. That will make investigating him and his wife easier. Having the Senate in Dems hands will make it easier to install the Biden picks.
I also look at restarting American science with a plan installed to take on the coronavirus COVID-19. Yes, that nasty killer will still be with us. It will be combined with the flu strains to attack and kill Americans in numbers which are still unknown. The United States used to be the lead for finding solutions to previous health crises, but not now. There is no federal plan from this failed administration. Leave to the for-profit companies to find something is not a plan.
Although this may be wishful thinking, I hope that Biden and his team are already starting the transition plan to replace this disgraced administration.
