I spent most of yesterday thinking and reflecting on what happened to our country 6 months ago

I reviewed my notes from that evening while everything was fresh in my mind. Here we are 6 months later I still can not believe that an insurrection took place, that the US Capitol was breached, the US Capitol, the most recognizable symbol of our democracy came under attack.

I am stunned that so many are not willing to believe their own eyes. They saw the attack, they know what happened, but, backed by FOX, OAN and others, they are acting as if what they saw was not real. It’s like it was a UFO, they know they saw something but they are not really sure what they saw.

The attack was violent, the sights, the sounds, the smells, the fear, the anger, the hostility, it was real, it happened, and I can’t for the life of me understand how anyone could not understand that.

It really worries me, we can laugh about stupid people believing in “alternative facts”, that the President is 6’4 and 240, that his inauguration was the largest ever, that Covid would just go away, that we would be open by Easter, that the vaccine is worse than covid…….the lies go on, but really, we all saw it, some closer than others

People died, a police officer was killed, two more later took their own lives, insurrectionists died and one was killed by a police officer. The building was in shambles, trash, weapons, broken glass and furniture, blood, shit and piss, yet members of Congress, those who were there will now tell us it was like any other tourist visit to the building.

I don’t understand, we all saw it, some live, some on tv in real time, some hours and days later, hell, the FB I just released new footage today.

We all need to wake the fuck up….. this happened, it was a real attempt to end the American experience in democracy and all these right wing fakers still try to tell us differently.

1. K&R! Well said.

These are such extraordinary times, I can't help wondering what history will make of them - assuming the truth will survive. That's why it is essential for the investigation to go forward, the entire truth to come out and the deniers to be consigned to the scrap heap.

2. I am at a loss for words

that can describe the state of our country. I was just reading that the Three Percenters have taken over the Grange in a rural area. They are getting themselves onto school boards and small town councils. They are also destroying this country from the grass roots and are being elected to do that.

4. The leader needs to be arrested

and executed like what would happen in most countries.
This should not stand.
