Let's win the Senate!
Okay everyone, right now you should go to this ActBlue link and donate whatever you can to help win the two US Senate seats in Georgia! The early money in this race will have the greatest effect on the January 5th special election. Follow this link and please help out:
WIN THE SENATE!
Yesterday the race was called for Joe Biden, who will become the 46th president of the United States.
This is such a relief! I've had so much anxiety and stress over the last few months (indeed, the last four years) and it has now been lifted. I can relax my shoulders, take deep, cleansing breaths, and feel a serene smile cross my face.
Of course, the battle continues. Things like, winning the two Senate seats up for grabs in the January 5th special election. Fighting the outgoing president, who will use every bit of his presidential powers to try to grift and destroy the country in his remaining two months. Healing the nation over possibly the most divisive election cycle in our history.
We're not done, of course, but we should allow ourselves some joy for a while.
Then, we get back to work.

COVID Invades White House
It's a weird day in America!
Starting last night, Oct 1st, we got word that President Trump's high-ranking assistant was diagnosed with Covid-19.
Then, around 1AM this morning on the 2nd, the White House announced that Trump and the First Lady were both diagnosed with the virus.
Later in the morning it was reported that both POTUS and FLOTUS were suffering symptoms from Covid.
And late this afternoon Trump had been given an experimental "cocktail" to treat his illness, and only minutes later was rushed by helicopter to Walter Reed. Supposedly for observation.
Meanwhile, he hasn't tweeted at all today other than several neutral-toned messages that were probably authored by his advisors.
By this time tomorrow I'm worried that President Pence will have taken the oath of office to become the 46th President of the United States of America.
Weird days indeed. Expecting updates throughout the night.

Tri-state Govs Reject Trump's CDC Policy
Posted on August 27, 2020 (HARTFORD, CT) – Governor Ned Lamont of Connecticut, Governor Andrew M. Cuomo of New York, and Governor Phil Murphy of New Jersey today released the following joint statement regarding the federal government’s decision to weaken COVID-19 testing guidelines: “The CDC has been a consistent, credible, and reliable guide for our nation for decades, providing clear and science-based guidance on everything from infectious disease to vaccines. That role is vital to our collective public health and it must continue. This 180-degree reversal of COVID-19 testing guidelines is reckless, and not based on science and has the potential to do long-term damage to the institution’s reputation. “CDC and HHS have not shared their scientific rationale for this change in policy, which substitutes sound science-based public health guidance with the President’s misinformation. This abrupt and ill-informed shift threatens the robust testing regimes our states have worked tirelessly to stand up with our federal partners. “Health experts recommend testing close contacts of individuals with COVID-19 to identify and prevent asymptomatic spread. This type of robust testing by our states has been a key factor in our success so far to flatten the curve in the tristate area. “New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut will continue to follow the advice of health experts to contain and prevent the spread of COVID-19, and therefore will not be changing our guidance that prioritizes testing for this population.”Bravo to Governor Lamont and the governors of NY and NJ for rejecting this boneheaded attempt by Trump to metaphorically sweep this pandemic under the rug. To date, over 180,000 Americans have died because of Trump's denial of science and refusal to take advice from the medical experts. What a dick.
