Biden Bounces Back
After a summer series of legislative victories, rising poll numbers, and ongoing voter grievance from The Supreme Court's overturning of Roe V. Wade, President Joe Biden has hit the campaign trail.
Biden is calling out MAGA Republicans as an existential threat to the republic as he rallies Democrats to the polls with hopes of jolting history by holding control of both houses of congress after the November 8th midterm elections.
President Joe Biden
But first, we must be honest with each other and with ourselves. Too much of what’s happening in our country today is not normal.
Donald Trump and the MAGA Republicans represent an extremism that threatens the very foundations of our republic.
RIP Queen Elizabeth II

President John F. Kennedy
For we meet in an hour of change and challenge, in a decade of hope and fear, in an age of both knowledge and ignorance. The greater our knowledge increases, the greater our ignorance unfolds.
We choose to go to the moon. We choose to go to the moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard

Crossing Brooklyn Ferry, by Walt Whitman
It avails not, time nor place—distance avails not,
I am with you, you men and women of a generation, or ever so many generations hence,
Just as you feel when you look on the river and sky, so I felt,
Just as any of you is one of a living crowd, I was one of a crowd,
Just as you are refresh’d by the gladness of the river and the bright flow, I was refresh’d,
Just as you stand and lean on the rail, yet hurry with the swift current, I stood yet was hurried,
Just as you look on the numberless masts of ships and the thick-stemm’d pipes of steamboats, I look’d.
