This post will be my last for two weeks. I am resolved to enjoy the holidays and to spend time with my family without paying attention to world affairs (unless there is some truly dramatic event). I hope that everyone has a peaceful and joyous period of time. I will be posting again on 29 December 2020.

The abolition of the Electoral College is long overdue in the United States. It is an archaic form of republicanism that now favors certain constituencies and diminishes that electoral power of many who deserve a voice in US politics. It truly distorts the idea of “one person, one vote”. To get an idea of how whacked out the Electoral College is, check out the graphic below.

As we bid good riddance to 2020, the video below of a poor woman in Ukraine enduring the futility of trying to walk on icy pavement. There have been many times this year that I have felt I was in the same position.

Finally, the ultimate statement on the absurdity of how many have viewed the 2020 national US election.
