BONE SPURS RUN IN THE FAMILY

On Wednesday, January 6th, 2021, I too was monitoring the various news stations waiting to see what the “mass of Trump supporters” were going to do. At first, I was pretty impressed with how they were actually behaving rather civil. I have no problem with “rallies”, flag waving and enthusiastic chants (propaganda speeches). I was, however, chuckling to myself when the fallen-from-grace-trying-to-figure-out-to-remain-relevant Rudolph Giuliani shouted out “Trial by combat”. Wow, for someone who had raised his hand and practiced American Law for decades, forgetting about trial by jury was stunning.

My biggest scornful laugh came when the 1st Duffous-in-Son, Donald Jr., shouted out, in a warning to fellow Republicans at the Capital, “We’re coming for you.” That statement in and of itself is a joke. That pussy piece of shit couldn’t fight his way out of a wet bag.

We’ll get back to Donny-Boy in just a minute.

Fast forward to the crowd attacking federal and city police and hearing various chants threatening bodily harm at all levels it was clear some people may indeed have been crazed enough to die for their hero, Donald Trump. Psychologists will be picking apart that phenomenon for centuries to come. In similar fashion we are boggled to explain how millions could have followed Hitler like he was a god. Maybe they were afraid of what others would think of them if they voiced their real thoughts. Maybe they have such weak mental constitutions they just do what everyone else is doing. Maybe they are so stupid they simply believe anything someone tells them. Maybe they truly believed (albeit based on being flooded with lies and false information for four years) that their country was under attack from the inside. Maybe they fell victim to falling for one of the best propaganda machines since 1930’s Germany. Maybe they are social outcastes who found a common cause. Maybe they are financially crushed and looking for an excuse other than the bad choices they made in life. Maybe they are tricked by a well placed quote, detail or anecdote. Maybe they truly accepted the frustrations of being victimized by their fellow Conservatives and honestly thought, based on Trump’s allegations, that the swamp was going be drained. Maybe they feel blind loyalty will yield some kind of reward. Some people just need something to die for (but, really, die for Donald Trump????).

Well, I know one person who wasn’t willing to die. I know one person who was too cowardly to join the crowd marching in protest and then attacking the building. I know one person who obviously doesn’t believe in Donald Trump. Donald Trump, Jr. While all the brain dead zombies were making history (not the good kind at all), that coward was hiding under his daddy’s desk.

Maybe he just has bone spurs. (Oh, by the way Donny Boy, it looks like we’re coming for you.)

(Corrected) The Clerks Who Saved a Country

While our Country’s Capital building was under attack, while Senators were fleeing for safety, while Congressmen and Congresswomen were being shuffled under back stairs, while Vice President Pence was being wicked away by the Secret Service, a tiny group of young, far underpaid Congressional Clerks saved our Democracy.

How?

They simply turned around in the fleeing calamity, ran back into the chambers as the crowds were breaking through the doors and secured the mahogoney casks containing the Electoral Votes and took them out to safety.

Today, they remain anonymous. No one is talking about them. No one has said, “Hey, that was my staff member”. But, it won’t be long until History demands to know their identity.

This small group of government employees saved a country. They saved democracy. They saved the United States of America. This small group of government employees are worthy and deserved of the Medal of Freedom.
