Burn, raze, salt because they failed.

And thats why there should be a week between the election and transition.

Both parties should already have their cabinet nominees ready when they win so the switch can happen immediately.

Hey, feel lucky we changed the Inauguration date from March 4 to January 20 back during the FDR era. We could be facing a further month and a half of Trumpy than we already are.

And, with it taking a Constitutional amendment to change the date, and about half of Congress and the states wanting nothing more than to stiggit to someone, we'll never get away from the antiquated two month lame duck period.

In the days when the fastest form of communication was the horse I can understand the delay.

But we don't have that handicap. There is no reason why the new President and his cabinet can't be installed by Thanksgiving.

Christmas at the very latest. New Years if you want Administrations to be neat and tidy and compartmentalized by year (which is how we talk about them in a historical context anyway).

Don't, worry, Steve. Even if you crater the economy any money isn't worth the paper it's printed on, I'm sure your "wife" will stick around for your sense of humor.

Why just rearrange deck chairs on the Titanic when you can sabotage the lifeboats?

Yup, this is all part of the GOP's plan to break everything and then blame the Dems for the mess.

Duh. That's the pattern for nearly all Trump appointees. You kiss ass, and you head a course that runs perfectly counter to the purpose of your agency.

I would not be surprised if they ripped all the copper plumbing out of the white house as they were leaving.

As we've seen with every other part of our government, it's a system that works great when there are responsible adults running things. Not so much when there is a pure asshole in charge.

The Homer Simpson-like slowness with which our media realizes that republicans are evil.

It took our corporate overlords a very long time to realize that the Trump policies of chaos, withdrawing from global trade, gutting useful parts of the government and wrecking the country during Covid... are bad for business.

The economy is already sabotaged. Tens of millions unemployed, about to lose their benefits and their homes, with no hope of help for months if not years.
/stock market isn't the economy

Munchin' and his see-you-tomorrow wife should know that if things ever get so bad that people start being put against the wall, they will be number 1 and 2 on the list.

The money was authorized to stabilize the markets, not the bank accounts of the working poor, so it has served its purpose and isn't needed.
