11/16/2020 Day 13 Post Election 2020 – Dissertation Confusion

I met with my Advisor today and I am so confused as to a section of the IRP application that I am stuck in the brick wall. Once I receive clarification on the wording for the IRP application and approval for gift certificates then I will be a little less stressed.

The current Administration is still refusing to cooperate with the transition team of the Bide/Harris Administration. I just don’t understand why sitting elected Republicans don’t come out and inform #45 that transition cooperation is needed for America. I hope the State of GA voters will realize this as a primary reason to give control to the Democrats. We have got to get this Country moving forward.

COVID-19 continues to kill Americans, but there is hope on the horizion. Two companies have released their research findings and both appear to be 95% effective in preventing COVID-19.

This is my Thought for the Day.

11/15/2020 Day 12 Post Election 2020 – 3rd Party Prediction

About 8-10 thousand supporters of #45 marched on DC on Saturday to protest the fact that he did not win the Electoral College or the popular vote this time. There is a lot of misinformation regarding the election which is the major reason that the Biden/Harris Administration will not be able to mend America. There is a great possiblity that #45 will be the main reason that America finally has a third political party. So I am predicting on this day, 11/15/2020 that in 2024 a third party (name to be determined) will be the party #45 runs as President.

I am down to a final class for this term and I will be so glad to be finished. This leadership course this term has been the pits of learning. Each class day was a day wasted. Hopefully I will know soon if I can submit my IRB application. I just hope I can get the data that I need. I am feeling good about self since turning 68, just need to focus on dropping a few fat pounds over the next few months. I am thankful for family and blessed to have Mama to talk to.

This is my Thought for the Day.

11/14/2020 Day 11 Post Election 2020 – Another Candel, Another Year

Well, put a pin in year 68. I am thankful and blessed. 2020 has been a year for pandemics, deaths, and removal of friends, but I am still breathing. School is coming along stressful and slowly, but I am trying to hang in there. I am concerned about being able to post on the social media sites, but I will figure something out. I will admit that I am menally tired and that takes a lot of energy from me.

Another day has gone by and the GOP still has not acknowledged President-elect Biden and the GSA has not released the transition funds. And the State Department has not opened the space in their building for transition meetings. It is really a sad day in American history with the way the GOP is treating the results of this election.

Well I have class all day today which I am not looking forward too. Looking forward to the end of the course.

This is my Thought for the Day.

11/13/2020 Day 10 Post Election 2020 – People Are Sill Dying

The GOP is still sitting back in the corner being the “3 Monkeys” (see nothing, hear nothing, say nothing”. COVID-19 appears to have picked up the death attack on America and we have a sitting President fuming because he was not reelected. I could have told him 4 years ago that he was not going to be reelected. I hope the voters of GA are looking at the post-election behaviors of the GOP and elect Ossoff and Warnock to the U.S. Senate. Oh, Joe Biden has been awarded Arizona.

I am still waiting to hear from my Dissertation Advisor. If she has not contacted me by Monday, then I will email her again. I have truly lost my motivation on this project, but I will try to get an acceptable Chapter 2 completed.

I have deleted several Facebook friends as it is time to move on. I don’t anticipate ever associating with Tracey again. She was wrong and there is nothing she will be able to say that will have me to understand why I was not invited to GJ’s celebration birthday. In time the hurt that I am feeling will cease.

This is my Thought for the Day.

11/12/2020 Day 9 Post Election 2020 – I Was Not Invited

A birthday party was held for GJ yesterday and I was not invited. To say the least I was devastated. I am done with Tracey and the entire Murfreesboro crew. I have never done anything to get something in return, but with all that I have done to be not invited is an action that I will never be able to forget. And when you can’t forget, then the best thing to do is just walk away. As with GJ’s death, I will get pass this recent sense of loss. I know Tammy and Tracey are at a moment where their friendship is in question, but for Tracey not to invite me to GJ’s birthday party is 100% inconsiderate. I am done.

The GOP is still in denial and still not acknowledging President-elect Biden and Vice-President elect Harris. The counting of ballots is still going on in 4 States, but even with a recount #45 is still going to not be a winner. A few GOPer’s have come out, but not enough for #45 to get on board with the Biden/Harris transition process.

Well today has been a day, but there is always tomorrow.

This is my Thought for the Day.

11/11/2020 Day 8 Post Election 2020 – Nothing New

Today is Veterans Day and GJ’s birthday. The contested election committee is still very active, but each count is being dismissed, slowly. Hopefully, the primary players in the GOP organization will inform #45 that it is time to concede.
I am trying to get some work done on my dissertation, but it is slow going, and I have no motivation. Don’ have a lot to comment on today, so I will close.

This is my Thought for the Day.

11/10/2020 Day 7 Post Election 2020 – Just Tired

I would never have dreamed that so many individuals would be a party to attempts to nullify a valid Presidential election. So many Republicans are still kissing the ass of #45, but it is hard to let go of “power”. There were no illegal ballots submitted, and no one voted who was not registered. The worst of America is still on display.

COVID-19 is still killing Americans, and the current administration continues to focus on the loss of #45’s election. It is good to see the incoming administration focus on COVID-19, and hopefully, they will be able to get this virus under control.

Maybe one day soon, this negativity will cease to be, and America can get back to being America. All I know is I am mentally tired.

This is my Thought for the Day.

11/9/2020 Day 6 Post Election 2020 – Forward Movement

America is now 6-days post-election 2020, and #45 has yet to concede. As each day ends, America is more divided than ever. Many of #45 followers are upset with Twitter and have moved over to Parler’s a new media page. And for those upset at FOX, there is now Newsmax. I am slowly getting past the disgust of #45 followers. As #45 continues to challenge the election results, America and the world is moving forward.
There is hope for the racial divide in America. The President-elect is determined to have an Administration that looks like America. I will continue to hope that people will bury their hate and get on the moving forward train. Currently, I cannot reach out to racists and get their opinion on improving America, so I will continue to remain silent.
I will continue to wear my mask, social distance, go out as little as possible, and encourage others to do the same.
This is my Thought for the Day.

11/8/2020 Day 5 Post Election 2020 – A New Beginning

Saturday morning around 10:30 CST, Candidate Biden became President-Elect Biden. The counting of ballots is continuing; it is assumed there are not enough outstanding ballots to change the outcome. President-Elect Biden and Vice-President-Elect Harris addressed America Saturday night with a unity message and moving the country forward. We have not heard from #45, and media reports his team of lawyers is ready to file briefs in opposition to the projected winner of this election.

In a conversation, I had to inform people the election is not over. In GA, there is a run-off for two Senate seats, and if the Democrats are to get anything done, we have to win those seats. We won the initial battle, but we will have to get the vote out in GA to win the war.

That is my Thought for the Day.

11/7/2020 Day 4 Post Election 2020 – Is It Decided Yet?

The counting of ballots has consumed our attention for the past four days, and for the most part, America is tired of the waiting. There is hope that something today an announcement will be made giving Biden/Harris more Electoral College points, or it will announce they have won the election. There will be some recounts due to the closeness of the count.

I am still processing the fact that millions of American’s voted to reelect #45. After all his lies, his mocking, his disrespect, his excessive golf days, the fact that he was impeached, and the fact that he knew COVID-19 was deadly and did nothing. I am not at the point ready to ask any of his followers why they continue to follow him. I am also not understanding why he received votes from Black/Brown Americans. This man took children from their parents, put babies in cages, and there are 545 children under the age of 5 that will never see their biological parents again. Yet millions voted to reelect him.

I just can’t process that information, and it is depressing. These few days, I have just wanted to retreat to a safe place, but I know that is not possible. I will have to find the energy to accept that America has more racists that what I thought, we have individuals that continue to vote against their own interest, and we have People of Color that just don’t get it. The current Administration has done nothing that I can see for the good of America. I am tired.

This is my Thought for the Day.
