normalcy

I’m not looking for the world to change overnight. But I would like a noticeable decrease in the drama. I think we’ve come pretty close to it today, and maybe a few good things will happen along the way. He’s only been in office six hours at this writing, and he’s already got us back in the Paris Accords. Plus it’ll be really nice to have a dog back in the White House, and this time we’re getting two. And I did hear a new Presidential cat is on the agenda. Even better!

Impeachment 2.0

Last week I posted a photo of the melee going on at the Capitol during what needs to be called an Insurrection. I have no other name for it, as “protesters” don’t smash windows, beat cops, and otherwise trash a hallowed temple of our democracy. Seeing that the War of 1812 ended over 200 years ago, I couldn’t see any other reason why they’d be there. So today, Speaker Pelosi was forced again to deal with the Insurrectionist-in-Chief the only way she could, by once again impeaching him. For those who disagree, you’re welcome to your point of view. That’s what First Amendment rights are all about. What they don’t concern is yelling louder than anyone else so you can punctuate your point with violence. We are free to disagree. We are not free to endanger the rights, the lives, the liberty, and the Constitution of this country. You live here, you have to play by the rules. If you disagree, there are legal avenues you are free to explore. But your right to disagree with me ends at the point of your fist.  Because we are a republic, and we’re civilized. Right? Right?
