A kitten video, because what better way to start the year? (6 minutes):
The title has little to do today with the content. I just wanted to make sure that I did not forget to mention what a great year America’s leader had this year. Despite being the target of a mostly right wing press and social media that has little to do all day but to spread falsehoods and lies, the numbers say President Biden had a great year. Perhaps the best year since one of the Roosevelts.
