A place for civil discussion of the events of the day for Tidewater residents without the limitations imposed by media forums.

A 24 year Navy vet, cancer survivor, father, grandfather, assistant caregiver for my live-in mother-in-law. Enjoys golf, football (real and fantasy), being the best grandfather I can, supporting the endeavors of my children (both involved in the education of our younger generations) and tormenting my wife of 34 years. Also prefer bourbon over scotch, but will drink both, just not at the same time. Discovering craft beers and trying trying hard to get to a consistent golf swing.
This is unbelievable! The State Supreme Court ruled the election win by the Democrat to be the final decision. Yet the GOP majority refused to seat him? WTF?
And in Congress, Nancy Pelosi swore in a GOP Rep from Iowa who’s election results are still being litigated. A 5 vote “win”, but still not finally decided.
I am truly glad that the only reason I have to go back to PA is to bury my Mother-in-law and to visit other gravesites of family members. I am disgusted. And anyone who believes in the “rule of law” and the sanctity of the courts should be equally disturbed -IMO.
Jonathan Rauch does an excellent job of calling out the GOP challenge of the Electoral College results for what it really is: A Made Up Conspiracy.
“Above all, the Republicans’ challenge is part of an information-warfare campaign. They are using a classic propaganda tactic that might be called “conspiracy bootstrapping.” First, you introduce a false idea, spreading it by every available means. Then, once people are talking about it, and some believe it, you cite its prevalence as evidence that it might be true—an epistemic sleight-of-hand by which propaganda validates itself.”

If the reporting is accurate, and there is little reason not to believe it is, should Pence, et. al. stop the madness that seems to be affecting Mr. Trump?
Turning on his closest allies because they are FINALLY telling him the truth? Asking Congressional Republicans to overturn Electoral College votes? Retweeting threats for Governor and SECSTATE of Georgia to be locked up? Generals at the Pentagon worried about what he will do next?
I ask you, are these the actions of a man in control of his faculties?
