Almost 100 days with The Democrats, #USA voters give @POTUS @JoeBiden high marks for the economy and  #COVID19 response.

POTUS will deliver his address to Congress tonight and will propose a $1.8 trillion 'families plan' with paid leave, child care, universal pre-K, free community college, among other expected surprises. Some say they have been the most hopeful days and nights that Americans have experienced over the past four years of blood, sweat, and tears.

Republican National Committee donors paid big money to hear twice-impeached and a two time loser liar in Palm Beach, the "new political power center" for the GOP.

This is the difference between Grift, to obtain money illicitly as in a confidence game and Graft, is the acquisition of some gain such as money in dishonest or questionable ways. These people made a ton of money while they were supposed to be focusing on serving the public.

Before Matt Gaetz burst onto the national political scene as the sharp-tongued, attention-grabbing Trump defender, he was best known in Florida as “Baby Gaetz.”

As a parent, I understand the importance of a baby blanket. Once a child grows up and is not a real spoiled brat, they don’t  need one.

USA Voting rights, specifically the disenfranchisement of different groups, has been a moral and political issue throughout history. American eligibility to vote is governed by the Constitution as well as by federal and state laws. Since the GOP is not willing to vote for voting rights, and if the only way to safeguard our fundamental right to vote is to blow up the filibuster, then ignore Republican taunts and just do it.

Brits and Americans are divided by attitudes toward the House of Windsor. Why are there different reactions to Harry and Meghan Markle’s Oprah interview? What is the attraction to learn about The Royals who're among the most dysfunctional families on earth?

Last night, I was channel surfing and stopped to watch #MSNBC’s @Lawrence on cable TV. O’Donnell, whom I had met years earlier when Lawrence was a guest on The McLaughlin Group program I was co-producing. On last night's show  Lawrence was interviewing Aaron Sorkin and Sasha Baron Cohen about their award-winning film.

Deforestation is the permanent removal of trees to make room for something besides the forest. This is more about political deforestation by tainting the beautiful flowers and clean politics from the state of Florida’s government in the sunshine.

US Senate votes to acquit former President Trump on an article of impeachment for "incitement of insurrection." After voting to acquit, #MoscowMitch McConnell was slamming Trump for his lies leading up to Jan 6 and the violence at the Capitol. McConnell’s vote to convict could have changed everything, but he may have left his spine in Kentucky.
