Thank god for judges who actually recognize what the law is

Not too bad a day, considering. At our staff meeting today, I found out that the hiring list I'm on - a list I got onto right before everything shut down and was supposed to expire at the end of September - actually got extended through January 26, and if there's still enough of a freeze going on, could get extended beyond that. It's a bit of a relief. I love what I do, but I'm ready to move up, and I would rather not have to go through the application/testing process again when I'm currently #1 on the hire list. I don't want to lose my prime spot.

It was also a relief to have the Texas case thrown out by SCOTUS. The danger's not over, not with so many elected Republicans actively behaving in such a seditious manner, and there's still the actual count on January 6 that could raise headaches (though will ultimately fail because even if enough someone challenges the count, both the House and the Senate would have to agree to overrule and the House is never going to do that). But I'm appalled that anybody thinks any of this is healthy for the country. The only way for us to start getting away from the dangerous sway Trump has over huge swathes of the country is for him to get locked up by NY once he's out of office. He can't tweet from jail, after all. I just don't understand how anyone can think overruling the vote of the people can be justified. Then again, I don't understand how anyone can defend the Republican party these days, either.

At least I could laugh at Trump and his failed attempts with SCOTUS. I think he actually believed that listening to Evangelicals and padding the court would buy him another term. They completely played him. They just want to control the court. They could care less who is actually in the White House.

Meme time.

If you could live in any TV show, which one would you choose?

Schitt's Creek. There's no sexual stigma. It's cozy and sweet with good people populating it. I can get cute boutique items at David and Patrick's store, run over for lunch at the Cafe Tropical, and be friends with smartass Stevie. It's the kind of feel-good atmosphere I need right now.
