In a rally in Georgia on Monday, President Trump said that he would “fight like hell” to hold onto the Presidency. In Washington DC, Mayor Muriel Bowser has called in the National Guard because he is worried that Trump supporters might want to fight like hell too. Literally.
The runoff Senate race in Georgia is today. If both Democratic candidates win, all three legislative branches will be in Democrats’ control.
The Presidential election count is set to be certified tomorrow, yet Republicans are mounting their opposition.
That’s a whole lot of hold-on-tight for a country that is being ravaged by a pandemic and down economy but that’s all we can say or do, unless you’re a Georgia voter. The rest of us, hold on tight!

Research has shown that hard drug use is down in New York City since the pandemic but cannabis use is up 35%.
New York University’s Langone Health Center surveyed 128 adults and found a 78% reduction in cocaine use, a 71% reduction in MDMA, and a 68% reduction in LSD, supposedly because those are things you do in social situations and there have not been social situations for many months. Cannabis, however, is A-OK for a party of one.
It helps that cannabis was legalized in more states in the November elections. Legal distributors have reported a boom in sales.
This is just one study but it is consistent with other studies, such as the Global Drug Survey.

This is a 2-week voyage from Tampa, Florida, cruising South and Central America and the Caribbean. Not only will passengers be nude but the ship will also be adorned with nude art. Clothing will be required when the ship is in port. We would also hope that some type of undergarment would be required for dining for obvious reasons.
Google workers will have the option of joining a workers’ union called the Communications Workers of America (CWA) and Google will now have this to contend with.
The union will take on Google over issues such as pay disparity, retaliation, and controversial government contracts, according to The Verge. Union membership will not be mandatory but over 220 employees have already opted in. The union will also represent contractors, which make up a large part of Google’s workforce.
Google has been accused of illegally firing employees who were organizing employee protests as well as taking government contracts that employees thought were unethical. The company’s days of doing as it pleases is over once a union moves in. This is the first time white-collar workers at a major tech firm have unionized to make sure the company adheres to its own code of conduct to not “be evil.”
