PRESIDENT Joe Biden: A Return to Normalcy?

There is nothing I love more than someone who admits they don't know but will let you know when they have more information, instead of deflection or making things up.  It's my #1 top criteria in a hire and favorite trait in a co-worker.

I know it's her first time and none of us are on our A game 7 hours into a new job, but I really cringed at her answer to the question on abortion.

She had no information as it hadn't been discussed, there was no need for her to state that Biden was a devout Catholic who had been to mass that morning.  He's had priests (at least one) refuse to allow him the eucharist solely because of his prochoice public stance.

He keeps his personal beliefs separate, so Idk why his press secretary felt the need to stress his religion in response to question on abortion but I thought that was a huge misstep.

 

I'm guessing she highlighted this to show the difference between his personal beliefs and public policy.  You can be pro-choice but still feel abortion is wrong.  She was definitely trying to dodge the question because the answer under most democratic presidencies is to loosen restrictions around funds to abortion and she didn't want to give a very right-wing news outlet anything to run with on that topic especially Day 1.

Agreed. I had someone die from COVID this weekend and I'm more mad than sad because he doesn't fucking need to be dead. 

This made me smile:

I sure like seeing President Biden's Twitter account! Not only do I not have to be afraid but it's a great and warm picture of him.

That’ll look good on his resume.

Doing things this way is so weird to me. I mean, getting rid of one cabinet and then it takes however long it takes to approve the next one. 

Not that I want Florida man's staff to stay but it would be more effective to choose and confirm the next cabinet beforehand so you have someone in charge right away

Normally the senate starts confirming key members of the president-elect's cabinet in December, so they're ready to go on January 20. However, the senate was busy playing footsie with un-named Florida Man for his "stop the steal" nonsense. Agencies will basically be in a holding pattern, with career, non-political officials in acting roles keeping the lights on until the heads are confirmed.

You guys, I about cried when CNN started carrying the press briefing yesterday. It was so refreshingly boring that I grabbed a friend and made him come watch with me for a minute, just to enjoy how boring and normal it was!

I would love to know if he or anyone close to him cracked jokes about how many flags there were.

"Hey, Jen Psaki, I double-dog dare you to go out and claim there were more flags in that crowd than ever in the history of flags!"

According to my German news (Deutschlandfunk) Biden's first scandal is about his training bike being connected to the internet and being considered a safety-risk.

That's the kind of scandal I can live with, I guess.

I saw reports about that before he took office.  It's a Peleton and connects to the internet.  But then one piece also talked about OFM's massively expensive golf simulator having similar issues.

Well - that's a good thing.  But seriously - why did the new administration have to renew this one?

That's how it always goes, though. The Republican is elected, pays off cronies, and trashes the country. People become concerned, and vote a Democrat in, who fixes as much as possible despite strong opposition. During the second half/ second term, Republicans take the Senate and oppose everything. Then a Republican President is elected to work better with the Senate, and it's lather, rinse, and repeat.

      Happy Shavuot to all those who celebrate! I have no idea why, but for some reason God commands us to eat ice cream. Well, dairy. So eat cheese! Eat pizza! Eat ice cream! Eat cheesecake! It has no calories because God commands us to do so!

      I know it’s just a beauty contest but this is the 4th time Jamaica was snubbed in favour of 5 contestants who were clones (with the exception of Peru) 
      Still can’t believe Mexico won. Even Olivia Culpo was looking at the results confused😂
      Shoutout to Haiti, Canada, Thailand and Myanmar who were also snubbed.

      I've somehow invested in this year's Miss Universe pageant. After watching the prelims my favorites are: 
      1. Jamaica (naturally lol but she's doing well)
      2. Haiti (love her energy) 
      3. Great Britain 
      4. Bahamas 
      5. Canada (a beauty! absolutely stunning!)
      6. Japan (adorable) 
      7. Cameroon (also adorable w/ an amazing costume) 
      8. Myanmar (seems sweet)
      9. Vietnam 
      10. Thailand 
      11. USA (I'm rooting for everybody black lol) 
      Not a fan of these but I think they'll place: South Africa, Mexico, Columbia, Venezuela, Puerto Rico, Peru, Australia, Denmark, Ireland, Dom Rep. 
      If they make Zozi (the current Ms. Universe) give the crown to a white girl from Pretoria, I will scream.

      I just made a lovely discovery! Type a colon, then a ) without any spaces. Then type a space. 
          
      I am ridiculously happy to discover this! (I also have a nagging feeling that I should have figured this out sooner...)

      Aren't I too old to forget to eat lunch?  
      So now....do eat a late salad and be cranky before bed because I want dinner and it's too late to eat or....do I tough out the afternoon cranky at my desk and eat dinner?  
      The dilemma is real.

      So excited, happy. Finally I got my vaccination appointment. The first on the 26th of May , the second on my birthday.  Staying at home is no option, because I work in healthcare, with very close patientcontact. (I make mammograms). Hopefully I can relax a bit more after my vaccination and let the anxiety go.
