    Might as well kick this one off.

    I'll start by saying that this press briefing is refreshing.

    Signed some EOs today.

    I'm not as concerned with Biden. The watch is on the Senate.

    I don't expect Biden to do much exciting. But the use of the filibuster in the Senate is going to hamper him all the same.

    I want 100 million vaccines in 100 million Americans in 100 days. Let's do this.

    I think he'll fall a bit short of the 100 for 100 in 100.

    But that is the kind of goal that we should be trying to hit.

    Your free stuff has been reallocated to another citizen, comrade.

    I'm still waiting for all us rich white people to have our student loans forgiven.

    He will get to it right after he does away with the Alternative Minimum Tax.

    They just left the house after confiscating my firearms. I'd say the handouts will be coming any time.

    I'll vote for him in 24 if he manages to do this.

    Can someone give me the talking points as to why Keystone Pipeline is bad again? It's been 4 years and I need my refresher.

    I'm not sure he runs again in 24.

    No way he does. He will be in his 80s. If the next four years don't kill him, the following four would.

    I don't really know how he is going to be able to keep up with the job at his current age, but he might be one of those guys that is just full of energy all the time. I'm 51 and I couldn't do it.

    TT and I had a back and forth on it somewhere around here the other day. I don't like it because I feel it is not in US interests, leaves us with risks, and encourages the exploiting of oils sands in Alberta. TT argues that extraction for other energy tech also has risks, our refineries need heavy crude, and the states were compensated.

    Small clarification - the landowners (in general) were compensated. Unless it is a state where landowners don’t own their land for right of way purposes, but I don’t know if there is one.

    Yes, but we can't do that for 100 days, unless production fills in something around 70 million doses.
