    I gave Jason sporkz for his work on this thread(even my Trump demerits). I know it was an impossible task. I learned a lot about politics from some of you guys and gals. See you on the Duke Basketball thread.

    Good night Chet(tribute for the Huntley, Brinkley and Cronkite days of news reporting).

    we all thank Jason for his hard work, and yet emphasize to him that we're apt to turn on him at any moment, without warning, because that's what we do.

    What a long strange trip it has been. Someone online said the best way for Biden to connect with the people would be to walk to the podium for his acceptance speech and start with "well, that was weird."
    If it wasn't such a serious thing ...

    That said, your quip reminded me of back in 1991, just several weeks after being arrested for indecent exposure, Pee Wee Herman shows up at the 1991 MTV video music awards, and after a rousing welcome, he asks, "Heard any good jokes lately?"

    I like how the day is dedicated to the people that love cheese, but not to cheese itself. (Also, if it is as written, it's really dedicated just to one person. Enjoy your brie, Jane! Today is your day!)
    Q "Why do you like Duke, you didn't even go there." A "Because my art school didn't have a basketball team."

    I do recall that.

    I believe it is "blessed are the cheese makers"... but I think it is directed to any manufacturer of dairy products.

    I don't know what you are doing right now, but if you aren't listening to the DBR Podcast, you're doing it wrong.

    Congratulations to everyone still able to post on this thread and on the DBR forums...WE MADE IT! It was close a few times, but we did it!

    A few closing thoughts...

    We survived four years of Trump, and eight years of Obama before that, and eight years of Bush before that, and eight years of Clinton before that...I'm feeling pretty confident that we'll survive the next four years.

    I'd tell ya, but then I'd have to kill ya
    "Trump revokes his lobbying ban on former White House staffers just hours before his administration leaves office"

    https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/polit...eol?li=BBnb7Kz

    Will any of these people be effective lobbyists? Rs may have to tiptoe around Trump, but I think anyone else might be given the high hat.

    One of my favorite Coen Brothers' scenes, which is sayin' sumthin. So many great lines.

    In your head.
    Time for unity.

    I pray that Trump supporters show the same amount of respect towards the new administration and side of the aisle as they received over the last 4 years.

    Amen and a-woman.

    Well, some of them did try to violently stop one of our fundamental democratic processes to prevent Biden from assuming office. So...not off to a great start.

    We can only go somewhere from here!

    I have learned a lot about civics, the law and the constitution thanks to everyone here.

    Also thanks to the mods (especially Jason) for putting up with all of us on this thread.

    (BTW, I am still looking for my pardon )

    Glad this nightmare is over. Trying to explain Donald Trump as president to children has been a nearly impossible task, as we teach them to be humble and modest and educated and kind and not to discriminate, and then the see the President embody all of that four years... As a social studies teacher it has been really hard.

    Will be curious to see how the Biden administration tackles trying to fix the many issues left behind by the last administration, such as the undermining of environmental protection, the gutting of so many government agencies, and the abandonment of our traditional allies while cozying up with our enemies.

    Looking forward to boring political stuff, like the appointment of people who are experienced and knowledgable in their fields, normal relations with allies, and a notable lack of personal attacks, complete with terrible grammar and spelling, on social media.

    Oh, and I was always so satisfied to see both the level of discourse here, and also that nearly every poster here recognized the last four years for what they were. DBR is a great forum full of really intelligent, informed posters, a real reflection of our University, and I always knew that, of all the forums I frequent, DBRers “got it” better than most, which was a relief in a world where it seemed the least informed, least intelligent, most crass voices were loudest. So thanks to everyone, including Jason for keeping this thing open. Some things are more important than sports.
