As far as I'm concerned, all US presidents are just faces. Nothing major changes
under different administrations, except for maybe things gradually getting
worse. Sure, the people get a bone thrown their way occasionally and we still
have certain rights and benefits... but the tiny policy changes only seem like
moves to placate the populace while the higher-ups continue to do what they've
always done behind the scenes (e.g. make war and favor corporations over the
people).

Glad to hear things are back to normal, more or less. Here's to hoping it stays
stable.

Haha, well at least it's getting done, right? :D

Personally, I have no practical electrical knowledge. Fortunately for my family,
though, my brother recently set up a generator that was gifted to us. This will
be the first winter we've had one. With any luck we won't have to burn candles
this year.

What's a car anyway, but but a portable gennie? ;)
