Kahomono - It Means Lucky

Random musings on whatever subject strikes my fancy, published every other day.

The 20th Will Be Interesting

So far this week:

  • The FCC has had to warn people that threats of violence over amateur radio frequencies is against regulations.
  • The National Guard is vetting the soldiers it’s got in DC to make sure that part of the security force doesn’t become the very thing it’s supposedly protecting against.
  • The person who stole the laptop from Pelosi’s office was arrested today. She was purportedly trying to sell it to Russia.
  • Several Q-Anon supporting Congressthings were seen giving elaborate tours of the Capitol on Jan 5.

This coming #WaltzWednesday’s entry will be on the most interesting day of my life, probably.

Lazy Caturday

Gertrude and Alice say, You go have your lazy day and leave us to have ours.

So Much Winning

I found this on Reddit, and I thought it was a pretty good summation:

I am trying to imagine a “presidential” library built in this thing’s honor… I cannot. What I think we should build instead is a library and museum dedicated to all the ways political power can be abused. The history of the past four years serves as a card catalog to that.

If his “legacy” will be anything other than the destruction of the Republic, it will be a hardening of that same Republic in reaction to the abuse it has endured and survived.

This IS Who We Are

They say the first step in solving the problem is recognizing that you have a problem. It sounds way easier than it is. It has taken the vast majority of this country five years. But maybe we’re there now.

I found this article encouraging. It’s about the real “deep state” (as opposed to the Pumpkin fantasy).

You attacked America. Maybe you think it was justified — as a response to a stolen election, or a cabal of child-trafficking pedophiles, or whatever — but it was still a violent attack on the United States. No matter how you describe it, that’s how the real Deep State is going to treat it.

The impact of that will make everything else feel like a LARP.

Possible Bright Spots

Never mind the usual suspects (Pelosi, Schumer, McConnell et al.) blabbering about how they mean business THIS TIME. Feh. The only business that lot mean is, “as usual.” That is what they want to get back to ASAP. And Pumpkin is being left alone to stir up more shit for the days from the 15th to the 20th, so expect that.

But the FBI is arresting dozens of the insurrection participants on Federal charges, which are somewhat less likely to be swept away on a tide of white privilege than state-level. So there’s that.

Richard “Bigo” Barnett, Wednesday
Same traitor, two days later

We went food shopping this morning. On the way to the supermarket, we always pass a house I have come to think of as “the Trump house”. Flying a Trump flag, all kids of inflammatory yard signs, etc. Well, today: no more yard signs. And the Trump flag has been replaced by a regular old Stars & Stripes, the actual flag of this country.

Small moves, Sparky.
