    Also from that link:

    He plans to follow Inauguration Day by centering each day of January on a specific theme, according to a draft of a calendar document sent to administration allies and viewed by CNN.

    Thursday, Biden's first full day in office, will be focused on the coronavirus pandemic, and Friday will highlight Biden's push for economic relief -- including executive orders restoring federal employees' collective bargaining rights and directing agency action on safety net programs, including Medicaid and unemployment insurance.

    The themes next week will be "Buy American," with a Monday executive order beefing up requirements for government purchases of goods and services from US companies; equity on Tuesday, coupled with a push to eliminate private prisons; climate on Wednesday with an executive order kicking off regulatory actions reestablishing the President's Council of Advisors on Science and Technology and combating climate change; health care on Thursday, a day on which Biden will rescind the so-called Mexico City Policy blocking federal funding for non-governmental organizations that provide abortion services; and immigration on Friday, when Biden plans to sign executive orders focused on border processing and refugee policies and establish a family reunification task force.

    February will focus on what's identified in the calendar document as "restoring America's place in the world."​

    I kinda wish (ideally) LGBTQ, racial minorities, etc wouldn't be singled out. For example, in the inauguration, expressing the "Kamala Harris. The first Latina..." the "first" black president (President’s Day: Meet The 5 Other Black Presidents In U.S. History), and so forth.

    I get the point but sometimes it annoys me as well.

    Sorry but I think it's worth noting breaking barriers.

    Hope it includes revocation of the leases in ANWR. I don't think there are companies ready to dig in as they probably understand they would be met with divestment. But the State of Alaska was one bidder. Haven't checked on it for a couple weeks but that should be on the list if it isn't.
    Go Biden.

    Like how Biden is the second Catholic president of the US after Kennedy (and he wasn't in office long before getting his brains blown out)? Not one mention of that as far as I know. I know why - more modern Dem identity politics nonsense.

    I wouldn’t stand next to him when he signed number 16. The sheer of magnitude of hypocrisy of President Biden, possibly the most self serving elected person of the century, signing that one might invoke a Divine lightning bolt to come down!

    I'm not a big Protectionist fan. I'd much prefer: "Buy fairly wrought quality."

    Why so?

    I see it as a catch-22 but I'm more for equality than segregation in regards to how groups of people are presented to the public. We've always done that, segregation of color and sex, but many LGBTQ rather not be noted for their orientation or sex which in saying "first transgender, first African American, and first this or that;" it's contrary to what these groups want people to refer to them-as men and women, as equals.

    It has it's place, but it still promotes segregation regardless the intent.

    Among other things, people will note the progress that's being made and be encouraged to make more.

    Sometimes it's useful to provide contrast such as the cosmic difference between President Biden and the last administration.
