Obama. May have been kidding with that remark but it is disturbing as it suggests that he has enough authority over the military as a civilian and former president to order special forces to attack the president of the United States. It is a bald-faced exclamation that a secret government exists and has real power. He should name names to explain what he means by “we”.

Donald Trump is committing treason & the Republicans are enabling him:

He's obstructing the peaceful transfer of power that this country was famous for.
He's deliberately undermining the democratic process.

He's destroying our country & no one seems willing to do anything about it.

11:56 I was at my drs appointment last week and he said he wouldn’t make it three years if he wasn’t in office, under the stresses of being president he said it’s highly unlikely that he can go two years so your estimate is probably accurate.

No amount of deferments can save ole draft dodger joe! Hahahahaha!

I guess that Obummer doesn't realize that he can't even send Jimmy John's into the White House because he is no longer president. He was a worse president than Jimmy Carter and that is one tough feat to accomplish.

Trump's Michigan lawsuit tried to present evidence of more votes than registered voters but they used cities and towns in Minnesota to prove their point.

Biden ought to just concede in the face of lawsuits like that.

Dear Employees:
As the CEO of this organization, I have resigned myself to the fact that Joe Biden is our President and that our taxes and government fees will increase in a BIG way. To compensate for these increases, our prices would have to increase by about 10%.But, since we cannot increase our prices right now due to the dismal state of the economy, we will have to lay off sixty of our employees instead. This has really been bothering me since I believe we are family here and I didn't know how to choose who would have to go. So, this is what I did. I walked through our parking lots and found sixty 'Biden Harris' bumper stickers on our employees' cars and have decided these folks will be the ones to let go. I can't think of a more, fair way to approach this problem. They voted for change......I gave it to them. I will see the rest of you at the annual company picnic.
