Madame Vice President

Kamala Harris has been sworn in as the 49th Vice President of the United States. Even for an office that has been compared by one of its holders to “a bucket of warm spit”, I still contend that this is a huge deal.

Here are the USA’s first fifteen Vice Presidents:

For the entire term of all of these, Kamala Harris would have been a slave. That did not end until during the term of the 16th VP, Andrew Johnson:

Ah, progress.

Anyway, eleven more white gentlemen of European-descent served in the office:

…until the term of the 28th Vice-President, Thomas R. Marshall. During August of the last year of his term, the 19th Amendment was finally ratified and suddenly, Kamala Harris would have been able to vote.

Now we’re getting somewhere!

But of course, Ms Harris may have been legally entitled to vote, but what of her education? For through all the time that yet seven more white gentlemen of European descent served in the office,

…little Kamala would have been required to attend inferior, segregated schools because she was “colored.” Finally (and no thanks to the serving VP Nixon),

school segregation ended for good was overturned by the Supreme Court.

Once educated, however well or poorly, one wants to start out in life. But while five more (wait for it…) (wait for it…) (you’ll never guess…) white gentlemen of European descent served as Vice president,

Ms. Harris would not have been able to open a checking account, savings account or line of credit… without her husband’s written consent. Not until the Pregnancy Discrimination Act of 1978 (lobbied for by RBG… just sayin’) was this practice made illegal.

All that, and only seven more white gentlemen of European descent to go,

Until

FINALLY

I give you

The 49th Vice President of the United States, Kamala Harris!

Their Plan Wasn’t

It’s nothing. An empty binder. That’s the Pumpkin “administration” plan for COVID-19 vaccine rollout.

After disdaining masks and all other common-sense precautions, dozens of these criminals got sick and then checked into hospital beds and took high-end treatments costing tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars, all on the taxpayer dime.

Then they left the absolute nightmare of a mess for the next guy to clean up. But look on the bright side: if the next guy had been the same guy, he’d have just let us all die, because

The 20th Will Be Interesting

So far this week:

  • The FCC has had to warn people that threats of violence over amateur radio frequencies is against regulations.
  • The National Guard is vetting the soldiers it’s got in DC to make sure that part of the security force doesn’t become the very thing it’s supposedly protecting against.
  • The person who stole the laptop from Pelosi’s office was arrested today. She was purportedly trying to sell it to Russia.
  • Several Q-Anon supporting Congressthings were seen giving elaborate tours of the Capitol on Jan 5.

This coming #WaltzWednesday’s entry will be on the most interesting day of my life, probably.

So Much Winning

I found this on Reddit, and I thought it was a pretty good summation:

I am trying to imagine a “presidential” library built in this thing’s honor… I cannot. What I think we should build instead is a library and museum dedicated to all the ways political power can be abused. The history of the past four years serves as a card catalog to that.

If his “legacy” will be anything other than the destruction of the Republic, it will be a hardening of that same Republic in reaction to the abuse it has endured and survived.

This IS Who We Are

They say the first step in solving the problem is recognizing that you have a problem. It sounds way easier than it is. It has taken the vast majority of this country five years. But maybe we’re there now.

I found this article encouraging. It’s about the real “deep state” (as opposed to the Pumpkin fantasy).

You attacked America. Maybe you think it was justified — as a response to a stolen election, or a cabal of child-trafficking pedophiles, or whatever — but it was still a violent attack on the United States. No matter how you describe it, that’s how the real Deep State is going to treat it.

The impact of that will make everything else feel like a LARP.
