Armed Insurrection

That is what we had at the capitol last week and what we face again. Donald Trump was impeached for the second time for his role in the affair. What is disgusting is that so many Republicans still voted not to impeach and will not condemn the President’s actions. Others are refusing to cooperate with leadership by not going through metal detectors or wearing masks. The Republican Party has become the party of insurrection. Truth no longer matters.

The Future of Our Country

Like most people I am very concerned about the future of our country. Armed insurrection it’s are trying to undo our democratic institutions. President Trump deserves primary blame for this but the movement has been growing and was fed by the Republicans. Now the toothpaste is out of the tube. I believe a major issue in the process is the growing belief on the right and left that any opinion or fact. That we should be tolerant of people, no matter what. This has led to alternative realities that cannot be cured. We cannot agree on a future for our country if we cannot believe in facts. Leader need to be held accountable for telling the truth and doing the right thing. Written by Paul Dribin

Chickens Coming Home to Roost-Hawley

The insurrection yesterday at the Capitol was horrible, but it was a natural outcome of Republican stances for years, supporting conspiracy theories, and non fact based information. Josh Hawley, Junior Senator from Missouri got burned badly. He was grandstanding to the know nothing crowd by lifting his fist in support of the mobsters outside the capitol. He started the objection to Biden’s election movement. Now the whole world has seen the violence that has wreaked. Yesterday was horrible, if it resulted in the end of Hawley’s political career that would be good. Written by Paul Dribin
