Thought for the day Monday
"Life beats down and crushes the soul and art reminds you that you have one" Stella Adler
Good morning friends. So here we go with another week. As I say each week, the former guy fades yet further and the Biden light shines just a little brighter. The last 24 hours has been interesting for me, it has provided me an insight into the resister rooms that I hadn't really picked up before. I had looked upon them as a collective for the good and I still believe that, but I had failed to respect each had its own identity and set of values that whilst aligning with the fight for the common good, are different and should be respected as such. So it's with that acknowlegment, I publicly apologise here, for a misunderstanding that led to my being asked to leave one of those rooms. I wish them every success in their quest to help build on the acheivements of 2020.
Moving on to the politics of the day, I remain cautiously optimistic that as each day passes, the administration is looking towards ways to improve vaccination targets, in an effort to meet the objective of handing back a slice of normality to the American people for a small 4th of July celebration.
As Trump becomes more and more irrelevant by the day and more famous for the various investigations he faces, Biden has an opportunity to really cement power and he absolutely knows that. Over the coming weeks, he will hammer home the messaging on the good that the American Rescue plan will bring to the nation. There has been a resounding positive response from the markets, this week, people will start to see money in their hands to ease some of the pain they have suffered over the last year through no fault of their own.
I will be supporting the reinforcement of that message with a series of ads that will not only be relevant to today, but will make for good messaging at the mid terms. My eyes now turn to his next task, as there is never time to rest in this job. Joe is no stranger to the fact that the next big hill to climb is an Infrastructure bill. Traditionally, he could expect to get support from some Republicans on this, but this time, it will be interesting to see how the GOP approaches it. From a Dems perspective, the filibuster has to at the very least be amended if they are to be able to make serious policy progress, but we will have to wait and see.
