Maybe we should create a new class of officials. We could call them Protectors.

It should be crystal clear that their first priority is to protect citizens and that they sometimes have to place themselves at some risk to do that. Those are the terms of the job. If anyone thinks those terms are unreasonable, don't take the job.

Anyone with a finger on the pulse of the right know how they're dealing with the Chauvin trial?

Have they cut him loose?

It's scary to think that the MAGAts have incoporated the 500,000+ deaths...

...into their world view in some weird way.

If you think now is the time to be happy, celebrate, look forward...

...you’re absolutely right. Go and do.

Not to worry, there’s plenty of us dark-souled people who will remain behind and see that justice is done. We got your back.

Right now I feel like we're all John Glenn in the final minutes of countdown to launch.

This could be really, really good. Sure as hell hope so.

Based on the current reporting, there had to be actual coordinators who planned 1/6.

From what we've seen so far, they're probably numbnuts who were too dumb to cover their tracks.

Conspiracy to assassinate the VPOTUS and Speaker of the House. Don't think Donnie is going to be much help, especially if DOJ doesn't disclose their names prior to 1/20,

I just blocked the email addys and phone #'s of my Trumpite sibs.

I am in no mood to process a post-Trump-departure, "Can we all get along now?" communication.

Spoiler alert: no.

So, if 1/6/2021 was a planned coup, how was it supposed to work?

Disrupting the EC vote counts seems to be pointless -- Congress would just pick it up again in a day or two. Destroying the ceremonial EC ballots would be equally pointless, since there are publicly available copies everywhere.

The only scenario I can see is where there was such bloodshed in the Capitol that Trump could get away with declaring martial law.

At the end of WWII, there were the Nuremburg Trials, but also the Marshall Plan.

We have to start thinking forward about how to put this country on a path toward some kind of decency. Neither an endless thirst for revenge nor fuzzy-wuzzy brainless forgiveness will get the job done.

There are an awful lot of people who followed the Orange Mussolini. It's not like we can put all of them on an ice floe.

Trump's last card to play is to declare martial law and suspend Presidential succession.

No one can know, probably not even him, if he will play it. The possibility is terrifying.
