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.

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.

Rock Bottom

So I was an ass and wrote this two days ago

I never imagined how bad it would actually be.

For four years, every time the Pumpkin hit another new low, I would think, This must be it. It cannot go lower. The country has to bounce off this floor now. This time. At last. Every time, I have been wrong.

I now think, there is no bottom. In case of a bottom, some red-hatted MAGAt will grab a shovel and get to work.

So You Thought You Might Like to Go to the Show

This was on the randomly generated list of songs to post on Waltz Wednesdays. Now, it’s in triple meter alright, but I don’t think I would waltz to it.

However.

Consider the massive plans the radical right has for rioting in Washington, DC today. They will try and disrupt the process of Pumpkin being removed from office by a fully certified election. In that context, this piece makes perfect sense.

Here’s hoping the only thing that mob accomplishes is infecting one another with COVID-19.
