We lived through history yesterday, and it was for the most part shameful. If you think killing a woman in the Capitol Building is acceptable or, worse yet, heroic, if you can say you love people who would do such a thing, if you call people who mounted an insurrection “true patriots”, then you are a moral reprobate.
A woman died. And she was a Trump supporter to boot. At what point do you admit that things have gotten out of control? At what point do you say enough is enough?
Our transitions of power have always been peaceful until now, even when the results stuck in the craw of the majority. Are you proud of yourselves? Do you have any idea what you’ve done to democracy?
The only reason I said “for the most part shameful” up above is that Georgia, a state I’d long since given up on, just managed to elect their first black senator ever, and also the youngest senator. That’s history, too. I wish that was what I could focus on, because it’s miraculous. But no. Shame on the insurrectionists.
Oh, and then, on top of everything else, protestors blocked my bridge for 15 minutes yesterday, too. 6 cars, blocking every lane of traffic, completely strangling the Seattle evening commute. I have no idea what they were protesting, and frankly, I don’t care. It accomplished nothing but ill will. It didn’t further anyone’s agenda. It was just negative energy. And it stressed me out and caused paperwork.
So, yeah, weird day at best.
I’ll leave you with this wisdom from a meme, in the hopes that it will cause you to untangle some pretzel logic if you happen to be experiencing it:
“You might be in a cult if you believe that:
You can’t trust the votes.
You can’t trust paper ballots.
You can’t trust judges at the polling places.
You can’t trust polling observers.
You can’t trust voting machines.
You can’t trust state canvassing committees.
You can’t trust state recounts.
You can’t trust 50 Secretaries of State.
You can’t trust the National administrator for election security.
You can’t trust Trump’s Attorney General.
You can’t trust Trump’s FBI.
You can’t trust the states circuit court judges.
You can’t trust US district court judges, including Trump appointees.
You can’t trust US Supreme Court judges, including Trump’s appointees.
You can’t trust the last ten Secretaries of Defense.
BUT you can trust Donald Trump.”
