It's occurred to me that ZVTS turned twelve last month and it blew right by me.
2020 has been a hell of a year, but we're still here, thanks to all of you guys.
In all sincerity, especially this year, thank you all for being here still.

The running mate's role is to say the things the presidential candidate can't say but should, and Kamala Harris is doing a stellar job on that front for Joe Biden, saying this week that she wouldn't trust a Trump COVID-19 vaccine before the election, and that nobody should.
Democratic vice presidential nominee Kamala Harris said that President Donald Trump's word alone on any potential coronavirus vaccine is not enough.
Asked by CNN's Dana Bash in a clip released Saturday whether she would get a vaccine that was approved and distributed before the election, Harris replied, "Well, I think that's going to be an issue for all of us."
"I will say that I would not trust Donald Trump and it would have to be a credible source of information that talks about the efficacy and the reliability of whatever he's talking about," she continued in the clip from an exclusive interview airing Sunday on CNN's "State of the Union" at 9 a.m. ET. "I will not take his word for it."
CNN reported Thursday that Trump has pressured administration health officials to accelerate the vaccine's development in an effort to convince voters of an impending end to the pandemic threatening his reelection. A number of sources familiar with the internal workings told CNN the responsibility feels immense and the environment is akin to that of a pressure cooker.
When asked by Bash whether she thought that public health experts and scientists would get the last word on the efficacy of a vaccine, Harris predicted that they will not.
"If past is prologue that they will not, they'll be muzzled, they'll be suppressed, they will be sidelined," Harris said. "Because he's looking at an election coming up in less than 60 days and he's grasping to get whatever he can to pretend he has been a leader on this issue when he is not."
Harris is 100% right. This regime, and in particular this leader, have lied about even the smallest things. There is no reason why anyone should trust that they will have a working ,safe, effective vaccine by Election Day. It's garbage and it's 100% dangerous to think otherwise.
Harris recommends taking Dr. Fauci's word instead.
Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, has said he would get a Covid-19 vaccination once a vaccine proves to be safe and effective and becomes available.
"I will look at the data and I would assume -- and I'm pretty sure it's going to be the case -- that a vaccine would not be approved for the American public unless it was indeed both safe and effective," Fauci told CNN's Jim Sciutto on Thursday. "If that's the case Jim, I would not hesitate for a moment to take the vaccine myself and recommend it for my family."
When asked by Bash in the interview airing Sunday if she feels more comfortable hearing those assurances from someone like Fauci, Harris said the nation's top infectious disease expert has for years "put the public health of the American people as the highest priority in terms of his work, and his reputation and his priority."
Yes. I trust Dr. Fauci," Harris continued.
Fauci is the expert. Not Trump.
And even then, I'd want independent verification because I don't trust Trump not to manipulate Fauci.
Dear Leader has decreed that federal government will no longer engage in racial sensitivity training because the notion that any white people need to look at America from a point of view other than whiteness is "un-American".
The White House Office of Management and Budget (OMB) has reportedly directed federal agencies to cancel employee racial sensitivity training that may be "divisive" and "un-American," according to multiple reports.
A memo obtained by The Washington Post and first reported by RealClear Politics instructs federal agencies to cancel contracts that teach employees America is an "inherently racist or evil country."
In the memo, OMB Director Russell Vought says President Trump specifically instructed him to cut millions in taxpayer dollars used on contracts with racial sensitivity training. The memo notes training sessions that discuss "white privilege" or "critical race theory," and orders all contracts that can be legally canceled to be ended.
“The President has directed me to ensure that federal agencies cease and desist from using taxpayer dollars to fund these divisive, un-American propaganda training sessions,” the memo reads.
The Post reports it's not clear what training programs the memo is referring to, but notes Fox News recently shared a critical report of Obama-era diversity and inclusion efforts.
The memo insists that "the President, and his Administration, are fully committed to the fair and equal treatment of all individuals in the United States.”
Systemic racism simply doesn't exist, says the white supremacist regime. Because we say it doesn't exist. So we're getting rid of anything that might try to correct it, because it doesn't exist.
And of course, Ku Klux Klangerine saw WOKE GOVERNMENT TRAINING on FOX News and pulled the plug. Racism can't exist, otherwise, well, Trump would be the Racist-in-Chief.
Republicans want to eradicate Black America. Try living with that every day of your life, knowing that your federal government wants you gone, that knowing the fact your ancestors being treated as chattel and that there are still systems in place to collectively punish us 150 years later are "propaganda".
They despise us to the core while bleating about the "fair treatment of all Americans".
We have to vote them out. I won't survive another four years of Trump. A lot of Black folks won't. We'll be annihilated. And it's all a "culture war" game to them.
Donald Trump is a eugenicist. The sick, the disabled, the elderly, the frail, the Black and the brown are all subhuman garbage to be eradicated from pure White America, and Trump is turning that into United States government policy.
