Is there a Biden appointment for head of Space Force yet?
In a great show of bipartisanship, it'll be Trump. Biden has already backed Trump to lead from the front: he will be the captain of the USA's first solo manned exploratory spacecraft designed to chart the outer edges of our solar system.

It's like watching the final episode of a sitcom that you've followed for years.

Like the walking dead, where you are fed up watching it but you feel you've come this far and should see how it ends.

Yet I can't bring myself to watch it. Wish I had done the same for Game of Thrones, Season 8.

In a (hopefully) last petty act Biden was not supplied a government plane for his trip to DC for the inauguration, meanwhile air force one carries the worst president ever to Florida on the taxpayer dime. I would love for it still to be in the air at 12.00 and Biden orders if back, but thats not who Biden is.
It's only AF1 until noon EST.

With Melania as the "unseen character".



Tbh, I think she did quite well given the circumstances.

The Costa Concordia as an analogy of the USA is a cute idea. A huge boat destroyed by the stupidity and overconfidence of its captain.

Fortunately, the USA is not ready for the scrap yard just yet, despite Trump's best efforts.
The US was in trouble before President Trump came along, and will remain in trouble after he leaves office. We need to pray that Mr Biden can deliver, because the task facing him is enormous!

If she pulled off a mask and it was Putin under it I wouldn't be surprised, aroused perhaps, but not surprised.

Why the edges, I think he should explore the very center of the system

I'm glad someone finally spells it out! Trump just made it show (to those who were too blind - or too privileged - to see it).

I got this celebrations on a side monitor while I do my stuff and it's the first time I see the whole melodramatic fuss they make and I can't believe how they talk like this is the "living happily ever after" moment. edit: I'm seeing it on CNN, maybe that's the problem

To be honest, the whole event is rather weird. To a Swiss anyway. But to each their own.


From the practical side: I noticed that if they keep voting in those old people they have to do something about all these long stairs in the capitol.

I know you mean it as a joke, but the "Biden has dementia" story is wearing pretty thin. Anyone who has listened to any of the incoming president's recent speeches could verify that this is a man who speaks eloquently, concisely, with passion, empathy and quite a dash of humility—a very clear contrast to his predecessor.

You're doing well -- that was a good effort -- but this time you've gone just a little too far in the opposite direction. Can you try pulling it back a bit toward the centre (which after all is Biden's natural habitat)?
