A Sad Day For America
« on: January 06, 2021, 11:59:30 AM »
What’s happening right now in DC is sedition pure and simple by a bunch of sore losers.

These are not patriots, but the opposite.

Egged on on a President who has shown repeated unfitness for office.

An utter disgrace.

Republican legislators are calling this a coup attempt. Anyone who said that we didn't have to worry about a coup attempt has finally been proven wrong.

People are going to die over this. Probably more likely protestors than anyone else. There are reports of gunfire, and pipe bombs. I saw video of people being taken out in ambulances on stretchers.

Plus with COVID, it is likely that police and especially older members of government and staffers may die from this chaos and the need to seek shelter in cramped spaces.

Plus this will be all sorts of risks for the police and other security agencies.

The "law and order President" has just given the USA it's first coup.

LOL, now we care of law and order! What was the term? Peaceful protesters right? Oh yea, "largely" peaceful protesters. You earned it DC. Its amazing how much the "concern" swings depending upon which side is doing it.


Cant wait for the coup in which the new president takes office on the same date as all the prior ones did...

Short term downside but long term upside as Trump utterly destroys himself.
He and his clan are likely done with politics; if not forever then at least for a long time.

Senators should be sharpening their proverbial knives now.

Yes, this is exactly the same as BLM protestors on the streets...

Imagine the whining if they stormed the Capitol and forced Congress to bounce.

Guess you don’t mind a banana republic.

Love the logic of “if it didn’t happen, there was no risk”.

Eh, its only in DC. A worthy protest site. Not every big city in the county.

Ive got a dinner meeting in the NYC tonight...will let you know how many MAGA folks are burning down buildings. Hopefully my Lexus avoids the Air Jordan Bicycle Gang.

Or if you know more recent history, this is the equivalent of Hitler‘s 1923 Beer Hall Putsch.

Sad day indeed. 20 years for all of them, I hope.
