FOWC with Fandango — Galvanize

FOWCWelcome to December 31, 2020 and to Fandango’s One-Word Challenge (aka, FOWC). It’s designed to fill the void after WordPress bailed on its daily one-word prompt.

I will be posting each day’s word just after midnight Pacific Time (US).

Today’s word is “galvanize.”

Write a post using that word. It can be prose, poetry, fiction, non-fiction. It can be any length. It can be just a picture or a drawing if you want. No holds barred, so to speak.

Once you are done, tag your post with #FOWC and create a pingback to this post if you are on WordPress. Please check to confirm that your pingback is there. If not, please manually add your link in the comments.

And be sure to read the posts of other bloggers who respond to this prompt. You will marvel at their creativity.

    Nails………….. Hubby swears by galvanised nails, or should that be swears at when he missed with the hammer?

        I bought Hubby a little gizmo for his tool kit that holds the nails in place instead of having to use his fingers. He was pleased as punch!

      It’s all good unless his thumb gets caught between the hammer and the nail.

        yep, but Hubby’s new gizmo I bought him for Christmas can avoid that now. Happy New Year Fandango

    Democrats should galvanize.

    DISGUSTED; What the Senate Just Did to $2000 … Checks

    MoFo Mitch doesn’t want to help regular people (as opposed to billionaires and his current wife who was not hurting but who got her own relief money from us and is still Trump’s Secretary of Transportation) with “borrowed-ded” money. And he is willing to break the rules to block help. This guy in the video reminded me, this morning, that McConnell/the Senate (even the majority) doesn’t have the authority to change what the House passed on spending. He/they can vote the existing standalone 2000 passed by the house up or down.

    As of yesterday, I knew it was preferable to just go up or down. I had forgotten (though), and the regular news isn’t bringing it up, that Mitchy actually cannot, by law (but he’s shown us he doesn’t care about this country), get his poison version through before the end of the year. Democrats, for once, are standing up to “the grim reaper” (what the majority leader has called himself) in favor of acting as a proper body of governance employed by the people. (The video I linked to is a little rambly, but I wanted to give credit for the reminder.)

      I wrote this, last night, late, and decided not to post it to comments (elsewhere) then… to think a little more instead:

      Democrats want to vote up or down on $2000 (in place of the $600), as the House has already passed (standalone), and nothing else [with nothing else attached]. Until that vote happens (whichever side wins on that particular topic — names taken as to who is for and who is against — upon which then there would be an outcome and they could move on to the defense bill), the stalling is meant to show voters in Georgia (who are at this time selecting their senators to send to Washington) that Republicans (particularly with the majority and Mitch in charge) can’t be trusted to care about regular people.

      I really don’t think Democratically caucusing senators will vote in favor of changing the 230 thing (and we can hope Biden won’t speak up for doing so); I think enough Republicans also don’t want to change 230, a least right now. There is no doubt in my mind that Democrats would not okay the nut-case commission on voter fraud, either.

      {The 230 thing has to do with internet sites not being liable for what commenters say. Someone has said that Biden wants them to be held more responsible; I haven’t heard him say it.}

      [Like I said, those details were in my mind before I was reminded that Mitch’s farce of a reconfiguration has no place in the process right now.]

      That all has to do with the people in office right now (in the House and in the Senate). Whoever will be in office soon will have to start over on legislation in early January, when new members are seated.

      Yet, beyond all that, the latest news tonight is that Mr. Orange will be coming back to D.C. shortly after we enter 2021 because of his hope in Josh Hawley (R-MO)… who will do the orange fella’s bidding and object to straight up counting the Electoral College votes in January (will do this objecting on the day which happens to be the one after Georgia finishes voting on their senators… but likely will not have finished tallying all the votes). This will affect events in that the names will be taken on the record as to who is willing to enable the continuance of false claims per voter fraud and who is not willing. The people who want to keep telling the naked emperor that his style looks great could invite primaries upon themselves in the next round of run ups to elections.

      No matter what happens with all these detailed maneuvrings, the fun part for Drumfquat will remain that he threw a wrench into the lives of people depending on unemployment payments; said wrench being due to his delay in signing what he has now already signed with no change after complaining.
