Insurrectionists beware -
It is time to clean up our system.
After all the drama and delays, we have a new Sheriff in town, one with dignity, gravitas, independence and firmness.
All in all, it’s a great day and a great beginning of Spring. The COVID relief bill passed the House. Garland and Fudge cleared the Senate. Vaccinations are averaging 2+ million per day. Biden announced that the U.S. will secure 100 million additional J&J vaccine doses. The Sun it shining brightly. What else are you celebrating today?
