Hello, America!

Diversity was on full display yesterday at the inauguration.

Lady Gaga, JLo, Garth Brooks and Amanda Gordon knocked it out of the park.

We have Vice President Kamala Harris.

The performances last night were first rate.

For those who are wondering, here is what JLo said yesterday:

“Una nación, bajo Dios, indivisible, con libertad y  justicia para todos”—”One nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”

Al Roker got a fist bump from President Joe Biden.

When President Biden finally got to the Oval Office and they had him on the flat screen signing the executive orders. I noticed he had a bust of César Chávez right behind him where he has his family photos.  How cool is that?

The bad guys, err MAGA Mob, didn’t show up.  They are chicken and cowards and a lot of them are being rounded up by the Feds.

César’s granddaughter, Julie Chávez Rodríguez, is the President’s Director of Intergovernmental Affairs. How cool is that going to be when she meets with the President in the Oval Office.

It was a good day.

From the Daily Beast:

After months of vomiting up falsehoods about election fraud to please Donald Trump, it might have been a good idea for Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) to just quieten down for a little while. But, true to form, he’s bumbled into the Biden era with some fresh nonsense. In a clueless attack on President Joe Biden’s decision to re-enter the Paris Climate Agreement—the flagship international treaty to tackle the climate crisis—Cruz failed to wrap his head around why Biden backs a deal signed in France. Paraphrasing an old Trump line, he wrote: “By rejoining the Paris Climate Agreement, President Biden indicates he’s more interested in the views of the citizens of Paris than in the jobs of the citizens of Pittsburgh.” His misunderstanding, whether it was willful or not, has been treated with the derision it deserves. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez wrote: “Nice tweet Sen. Cruz! Quick question: do you also believe the Geneva Convention was about the views of the citizens of Geneva?”

Sen. Cruz will never get it.

Sen. Bernie Sanders got the major meme treatment yesterday.  My favorite was Bernie on the cover of a George Harrison album and calling it “Medicare For All Things Must Pass.”

That’s funny.

Royko sent this to me about yesterday:

I woke up today in the militarized totalitarian Harris-Biden regime of North Venezuela.

I wonder when Royko is getting back from Caracas which is by the way in North Venezuela.

The Dream is 58 today.  Happy Birthday, Hakeem Olajuwon!
