Angry New Yorker

Day one. The amount of glee, fist pumping and self-congratulatory semaphoring on display yesterday was interesting to watch, but dismaying to behold, as if somehow an empty inauguration in an armed camp was worthy of unbridled celebration. President Biden (a/k/a "The Husk") bleated out "unity" many times yesterday, but in essence his speech in its entirety called in reality for "conformity" not unity. The failing and overreach of the Democrats (a party to which we once belonged) have been covered to exhaustion elsewhere, but Biden - surrounded by his Obama-era retreads - instantly demonstrated what his "unity" would mean: eleven Executive Orders signed within minutes reversing President Trumps executive orders likewise reversing Obama's. Tit-for-tat is the modus operandi going forward, 

And so Biden, with his empty lofty words, his empty Washington, D.C., and his empty ideas will over the next four years give proof to H.L. Mencken's famous quip: "Democracy is the theory that the common people know what they want, and deserve to get it good and hard."

We're going to get it good and hard.
