I remain worried about the country and world my wife and I will be leaving to our beautiful daughters. But some of that was lifted at Biden's inauguration.

I was going to post the video of this young lady's moment, but I know that would have been a waste of time. Some here don't want to see it, or know about it.

So I'll just post a photo. This was America. Not the last four years of ugliness. Suddenly I'm a bit more comfortable with our daughters' world.

She was incredible, and hope for the future.
Damn...you and Mac1958 don't even realize how racist you sound.

A good case can be made for saying that Congress will take on more significance than before and essentially be running things, at least until Harris' successor.

... “ Suddenly I'm a bit more comfortable with our daughters' world.
...and I’m exponentially more concerned about the future of our SONS in this country. IF there IS any future for them here at all.
Why wouldn't there be?

My sons are doing quite well. Are yours?
Are they woke white guilters?
Do they wear pink Britney Spears half shirts and talk with a phony high pitched voice?
Do they have neck tattoos, purple mohawks and big holes in their ears?
Are they aspiring professional gamers?
No to all of the above. They are well-balanced, compassionate men, loving fathers, and intelligent people. They are gentle with their families and fully capable of kicking ass if the occasion arises. They have successful careers and are responsible for their own lives.
They're "intelligent" yet they aren't concerned about the direction this nation is moving in?
They have a lot of concerns about this nation. But they are not following the "This is the end of America" crowd or looking to Qanon for any kind of answers.

Good to hear...I know what side they're on then as one side intends to keep America right where it's always been while the other has an all new plan for what America must become. Maybe they are legit after all....are they rubbing off on their Leftist old man?

Maybe 50, 60, 70 years ago this was America, when it was a country where honor and integrity mattered, where hard work was valued, where everyone didn't get a trophy, where there was a sense of common purpose.

Now it's nothing but empty platitudes, as none of that exists anymore. We have borders, for now, but the rest of what made us great is largely gone. That wasn't in the borders, or the soil, it was in the people and has been replaced by an entitled and selfish attitude and a 'get mine' approach, where integrity is outright laughed at and thought of as foolish and naive by many.

A poem doesn't change that. Electing Biden sure as hell doesn't either. That stiff is part of the gang that oversaw this degradation, as the leadership of the nation itself took on these reprehensible characteristics and is still plumbing new depths in that regard. No, a poem does not change that.

What shit is going to hit the fan?

And if there is no one capable of fighting the battle then, is there anyone capable now? If so, where did they go?
At some point in the future, there will be another war, or perhaps a terrorist attack; maybe a civil uprising or natural disaster. Most likely, said future event will be the result of lame ass policies that force everyone to conform to ideas that reject the original ideals that produced a country as great as ours. It will happen and it will take us by surprise. When that happens, you can blame yourself. I and men like me probably won't be here for you or your children to turn to to protect them and to make everything ok again.

You are taking away the very thing that made America. Strength and a common set of ideals which all should live by. I said what I said.

The inauguration ceremony was a great day for America.

I usually don't buy into these kinds of things. But after the last four years, it was extremely refreshing.

One of my sons is more liberal than the other. One is more religious than the other, and attends church every Sunday. It may mess with your paradigm, but the more liberal one is the one who is deeply religious.

Their old man gets labeled a lot of ways. You settled on "leftist". Can you tell me why?

I have consistently posted against a more intrusive gov't, in favor of individual liberties (and the responsibilities that come with that liberty), in favor of lower taxes and reworking the entire tax system, in strong support of the 2nd amendment, in favor of private property and totally against the abuses of Imminent Domain, and in being good stewards of our lands. Are these "leftist"?

So you are planning on leaving?

I am 61 years old. I am armed and so are my children. I taught them to shoot and instilled the safety rules early.

I go shooting fairly often, or I did before covid-19 shut so many places down. I have a number of friends who like to shoot. Many, if not most, are what you would term "leftist". The idea that that means they are all weak is ridiculous.

I was referring to her age, not her race, so quit being such an asshole

I don't know you but I suspect that you are part of the dying breed of old school Democrats. The faction of the Democratic Party that you are subscribed to is shrinking fast. Those who will stand in your place when you are long gone are not like you. Hate to break it to you. They are being trained to see America much differently that you were and their evolution of thought and politics will differ greatly from yours.

Except I am not a democrat.

If I am an "old school" anything it would be an old school conservative. They are dying out as well.

Do you not just love these right wing people who do not know you telling you what you are? They just paint with a wide brush.

I may have misread you all along...Where do you stand on immigration, abortion, .gov regulation of business, trannys in classrooms and socialism-lite?

I think immigration should be controlled. I think work visas should be controlled but available.

I think abortion should not be used as birth control, but the mother should be considered as well. Usually I don't discuss this topic.

I think gov't should provide some structure to the business world, but proportionate. If businesses get tax breaks, grants or subsidies from the gov't, they shouldn't bitch about also getting regulations. Some regulations, such as safety regulations and environmental regulations came about because businesses didn't regulate themselves.
