16. That's a fantasy and it's never going to happen. Joe Biden is not King Biden...

... and that's not his style. What do you think he could do anyway? Threaten to behead them? Act like Trump and withhold funds or vaccine? -- Ridiculous.

In an earlier post, I explained that it was time to focus on what we CAN do instead. Manchin is not going to change. We know this. We should not be surprised or angry. We should not expect him to be anything OTHER than who he is.

Instead, everyone should think "progressively" and look forward to replacing a half-dozen GOP senators and adding a half-dozen NEW Democrats to the Senate in two short years. If we do that, then we can get rid of the filibuster and accomplish so much more.

The constant wailing and handwringing and moaning about how "awful" Manchin is really accomplishes nothing useful. It is what it is, and it's time to accept reality.

He's not my favorite Senator (there's only one I dislike more) but we should feel DAMN LUCKY that he's OURS!!

Count your blessings!
