Random thoughts on the passing scene.

Joe Biden has all but sealed the deal in becoming the next president of the United States, after the Electoral College on Dec. 14 confirmed his election victory.

TIME magazine named Biden and Kamala Harris Person of the Year. That distinction should have gone to frontline medical workers battling the COVID-19 pandemic and the scientists behind the vaccines just now being distributed in America.

It's weird how Democrats and progressives are no longer upset about the existence of the Electoral College.

It's difficult to take seriously President Trump's claims of voter fraud and other electoral shenanigans on a scale necessary to steal the election from him because Trump's own legal team doesn't take said claims seriously. When given a chance in court to present evidence and witnesses to that effect, Trump's lawyers turn into Emily Litella and say, "Never mind."

Just because an outcome is loathsome doesn't mean it was achieved by nefarious means.

Republicans and conservatives are in real danger of becoming the mirror image of Democrats and progressives who refused to accept Trump's defeat of Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election.

The once-popular progressive talking point that Trump-nominated justices now serving on the Supreme Court would back the president's efforts to overturn the election turned out to be spectacularly wrong.

The fact so many people are skeptical to one degree or another of last month's presidential election results is an indication of how important perception is when it comes to the casting and counting of ballots. It's a real problem.

The presidential election was manipulated by the mainstream media and Big Tech. Both did a masterful job of locking down the New York Post's pre-election exposé on Hunter Biden's shady business dealings that took advantage of his father's then-position as vice president. Post-election, it has come out the younger Biden's finances are being investigated by the Justice Department.

The woke crowd has claimed another scalp in the form of Cleveland's Major League Baseball team dropping its "Indians" name and logo.

Here in Washington state, Gov. Jay "Lockdown" Inslee seems to subscribe to progressive orthodoxy that racial identity is the cause of and solution to all of life's problems.

Speaking of Washington state, Seattle's inept mayor and incompetent city council are doing nothing to stop the Emerald City's slide into "Lord of the Flies" status. In fact, city leadership is implementing some policies hastening the decline of what used to be one of the best places in America to live.

The response to COVID-19 at the state and local level has caused a lot of people to lose confidence in the government. While too many governors and mayors play dictator in the form of arbitrary decrees they don't adhere to themselves, at least the feds helped get vaccines produced in record time.

It's difficult not to conclude perfume and cologne manufacturers are in competition to put out the most obnoxiously pretentious commercials on television.
