Ready to Hear Some Good News?

It’s time for a good news post!

And by good news, I mean good things that are happening thanks to the Democrats being in charge (and also Republicans facing consequences.) So here you go — some of the good news items I’ve seen recently:

The White House says about 900,000 U.S. kids ages 5 to 11 got a COVID vaccine just in the first week after its approval

In little reported election news, Georgia Dems flipped 41 seats from red-to-blue in municipal elections across the state, while the Republicans only flipped 6

A recent Monmouth poll found that a majority of Americans (61%) supports requiring face masks to be worn in schools by students, teachers, and staff

New Hampshire Gov. Chris Sununu (R) decided NOT to run for the NH Senate seat in 2022. He had been polling higher than current Senator Maggie Hassan (D)

A federal judge ruled that TX Gov. Greg Abbott’s executive order prohibiting mask mandates in schools violates the Americans with Disabilities Act

House Democrats announced they are introducing a resolution to censure Rep. Paul Gosar after he posted a video depicting violence against AOC and President Biden

A New Jersey man who punched a police officer during the January 6 Capitol riot was sentenced to 41 months in prison

A new Monmouth poll finds 65% of Americans support the bipartisan infrastructure plan which just passed Congress and 62% support the social spending legislation currently being considered

A sizable majority of the Republican-dominated House in South Dakota voted to have a committee prepare a report and recommend whether Attorney General Jason Ravnsborg (R) should be impeached

DOJ is asking for the so-called QAnon Shaman, who wore a headdress and posed shirtless on the Senate floor during the siege of the US Capitol, to be sentenced to a prison term of more than four years

President Joe Biden is planning to host an in-person meeting with the leaders of Mexico and Canada, the first of its kind in more than five years

A new report found that the “proportion of electricity the United States gets from solar and wind nearly quadrupled between 2011 and 2020″

More Minneapolis voters cast bal­lots in last week’s e­lec­tion than any oth­er mu­nic­i­pal e­lec­tion in re­cent his­to­ry. The e­lec­tion drew a 54% turn­out of el­i­gi­ble voters — the most for a city-only e­lec­tion in more than four de­cades, smash­ing the 1997 re­cord of 46.5%.

The United States reopened its borders for fully vaccinated travelers from dozens of countries, ending more than 18 months of restrictions on international travel

Have a good weekend!

  1. Good news is always a welcome visitor! “There is too much bad news to justify complacency. There is too much good news to justify despair.” – Donella (Dana) H. Meadows. Thank-you for sharing!

  2. Tokyo, those are good results. I did see where Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger said they would vote to censure Gosar. I am hopeful more than these two Republicans will censure him. Of course, the former president said today he was proud of the hang Mike Pence chants. What his followers do not realize, is Pence represents the most loyal to the former president, but the boss threw him under the bus. As Thomas Wells, an attorney who worked for Trump, wrote in 2016, if you are on Trump’s good side, don’t get used to it. He will turn on you at some point. By the way, what else did Wells say in 2016? “Donald Trump lies every day, even about things of no consequence.” Keith
