February 6, 1933

On February 6, 1933, the 20th Amendment to the Constitution went into effect. This Amendment moved the start of the presidential, vice-presidential and congressional terms from March 4 to January 20. This change was needed as technology had advanced to the point that it no longer took weeks to go from San Francisco to Washington, DC, instead a train could get you from one to the other in three days and an airplane could do it in less than a day. And in the 21st century, the train ride still takes three days, but an airplane can do it in four hours. So, for the QAnoners out there who think that Biden’s inauguration was tainted because it was done on January 20 instead of March 4, do they also think Trump’s was tainted in 2016? Do they really believe that on March 4, 2021, Trump is going to ride to Washington DC at the head of a military procession with space-lasers flying overhead shooting down the Jewish space-lasers that are controlling our minds for the Reptilian Overlords? If so, do I need to buy the heavy-duty aluminum foil, or can I use three or four sheets of the regular foil to make my protective headgear? Asking for a friend.
