Very very difficult to say, in which direction US will move now.
This will be a very hard job for Biden.
But this man feels too soft.
Still too many Trump likes.
My feeling: US are in problems for the next 5 years.

Greetings from EU.

A soft exterior does not mean he doesn't have the guts to take on the Fascists. In addition, his policy changes will have the support of majorities in the House and Senate. But, you are correct, we will have to wait and see. It is going to take a lot of doing and, undoing, to establish Democracy once again.
I'm out.....have some fun. Eh?

I think, the common people in US dont understand,
that US is still the worlds first gamer.
In US there are living specialists from all over the world.
Germans, Russians, Israelis,....
And with a lot of specialists you win the game.
Same like Merkel, be smart and you win.
But that needs a lot of power, to explain that to US people.
Now, dont ask a German how to do that,
hopefully you understand what I mean.

I say this as someone who generally approved of much of what Trump accomplished as President: he is a spent political force.

He will not win another GOP nomination for President. The last two weeks destroyed his political brand. Sure, lots of people still like him, but a great many republicans will vote for a different candidate next time.



But someone wiser, eloquent and sophisticated will come along. At which time some might have preferred Trump

Biden, Trump....
Until you have a multi-party system and get big companies out of politics, it will remain a country with a ridiculous low minimum wage, no healthcare or free education.
I feel sorry for Americans, i truly do.
We can't agree on everything.

Speaking of the EU, just browsed this piece.


French cartoonists are in trouble again Le Monde, which defended the right to offend Islam, is more 'Anglo-Saxon' on the transgender issue

The freedom of a satirical cartoonist to satirise has limits even in France, it appears. The best-known, and best, French daily newspaper, Le Monde, this week bowed to some of its readers — and infuriated others — by apologising for a website cartoon which, it said, “could be interpreted” as an insult to transgender people and a “minimisation” of incest.

As a result, the cartoonist, Xavier Gorce, severed his 19-year relationship with the newspaper. “Freedom is not negotiable,” he tweeted. “I hope that the ‘woke’ culture that is now present in part of the Left-wing Anglo-Saxon press is not spilling over into the media in France.”

Gorce has not been the only person to contrast Le Monde’s near instant apology for his drawing and the newspaper’s passionate support for the moral and legal right of the satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo to publish cartoons of the Prophet Mohammed which offended many Muslims.

Many critics on-line say that their objections to the cartoon have nothing to do with “wokeness”. They say that they see no circumstances in which incest should be the subject for a joke or for a satirical cartoon.

Charlie Hebdo’s Mohammed cartoons were intended as mockery of Islamist extremism — not a mockery of Muslims or of Islam itself. Equally, Gorce insists that this week’s drawing was not an attack on transgender people or a minimisation of incest.

Within hours of the publication of the cartoon, Le Monde put out a statement saying that it “should never have been published” and offering “excuses” to readers who had been “shocked”.

The newspaper — and France as a whole — was absolutely right to defend the Hebdo Mohammed cartoons, even though some of them were unfunny and poorly drawn. Le Monde should also have defended Gorce’s penguins, which are usually wise and witty and beautifully drawn in a minimalist way. If the joke failed on this occasion, the paper should at least have given Xavier Gorce an opportunity to explain himself.

Freedom, especially in satire, means freedom to push the boundaries of taste. To quote Le Monde’s own 2015 Charlie Hebdo editorial back at them, Gorce’s penguins embody “the free spirit, the necessary and vital audacity of freedom”.

The great thing about it is that like 70% of Republican voters are more loyal to Trump than the GOP. Their loony toons party will further descend into madness as they become a smaller and smaller minority LOL

Most of the US people are smart.

They are just stupid.
