Gentle Readers . . . and Maxwell,
I am tired. I have been tired since that miserable creature was elected.
I knew trouble would come today. The creature told us it would.
But I am appalled by the severity of what happened in D.C. I am appalled by the lack of preparation. I am appalled by the violence. I am also appalled because I know that if those criminals had instead been #BlackLivesMatter protesters begging for their civil rights, many would have been shot and killed, and their bodies would have been desecrated. Those who weren't shot and killed would have been beaten and hauled off to jail.
The Metro Police fought hard and valiantly to protect the Capitol. Why hadn't the National Guard already been called out to assist when the creature said how big this day would be? Why? Why? Why?
I thought arrests of these insurrectionists would take place when the police received the assistance so desperately needed. Instead, some morons left and those who remained stood around while the cops watched them. They violated the 6 p.m. curfew. They acted violently and posed an obvious threat. Yet they had nothing to fear. The vast majority are Caucasian.
And the creature loves them. He said so. He loves them. They're special.
The kiss-ass senators who committed to trying to overturn election results have backed away from that position. Why did they ever make that commitment? They are the creature's accomplices in terrorist acts. Mitch McConnell will continue his reign unabated.
The light that reaches me is the election in Georgia. It can't be wiped out by this day.
I have been let down––personally––by the police in Jacksonville, Florida, and by a hospital emergency room. I don't know if I'll write about it because it was horrifying.
And now I have been let down by today's insanity.
I am lost and alone. I'm in too much pain to cry.
Infinities of love,
An appalling day on so many levels, you're right.ReplyDelete
Sadly, I'm sure this is not the end.Delete
Gurl......you summed it up. I was appalled, tired and disgusted. And still am honey. Un-fucking-believable today. The whole Congress is a fucking joke. And the remaining politician s best not let trump walk or I will be livid and hold them all accountable next election.ReplyDelete
You are not alone you have all of us reading your blog and feeling exactly the same way you feel. Don't cry, then they win. Fight! look what happened in GA today we got rid of two more of the monster's minions. It will be okay. Eventually. Not today, or tomorrow but eventually this monster will get his just due. He has to.ReplyDelete
I'm in too much pain to cry anyway.Delete
I have been watching in horror. And despite the depravity of the orange one I also blame his enablers. And hope that all of their chickens come home to roost.ReplyDelete
You have also been let down by the police and a hospital? Again, I am so very sorry - and wish that my sorry had the capacity to change anything.
I am hoping that this dreadful day will be a wake up call. One that cannot (and isn't) ignored.
I'm afraid of what will happen during the inauguration on Jan. 20. The creature says he's returning to Mar A Lago on the 19th. He's banned from Twitter, but he'll find ways to direct his minions.Delete
You have summed it up, sadly, perfectly. I'm tired, too. Sending you hugs from across the sea. We are not alone.ReplyDelete
Thank you, dear one.Delete
Such a horrible day for your country. Sending you hugs. xoReplyDelete
So many of these supportive comments are from people in other countries, and I appreciate it so much.Delete
I am trying to keep in mind that this is Trumpism's last gasp. It was bound to get ugly, and it has, but we are hopefully moving forward from here on out. Meanwhile, there need to be some investigations and consequences for those who enabled or permitted yesterday's violence. (Beginning at the top!)ReplyDelete
I wish it were the last gasp. When the creature dies of old age, someone else will take up the mantle.Delete
It is appalling what has happened and that some police even had their pictures taken in selfies with this mob. You are right in so many ways but you are letting it eat your sensitive soul. If at all possible, take a nice walk in nature, read a nice book or watch an uplifting movie. Remember there is much good in the world. I am not religious but I love angels and there is a saying..it is better to walk with an angel through hell than with the devil through paradise. Hug your furbabes, watch some cute youtube videos and don't let your heart be hurt by such foulness. I know, easier said than done, but no one can take away your thoughts or your heart.ReplyDelete
Thank you, Birgit. Much love to you.Delete
this is what I wrote to my rep and senators this morning:ReplyDelete
(1) begin impeachment proceedings
(2) invoke #25 amendment
(3) arrest seditious senators and try them for treason
(4) expel seditious senators
(5) disbar seditious senators (if they are lawyers)
1/6/21 is a DISGRACEFUL blot on our history books! what are YOU going to do about it?
if they do NOTHING, then I will vote them out. DEATH TO MAGAts!
Janie, what happened is shocking and appalling. My heart goes out to you and all my American friends. ♥ Birgit offers some good suggestions to soothe your soul. Hang in there! January 20 is just around the corner.ReplyDelete
I'm concerned that they'll attack again on the 20th.Delete
Such horror! Sending you hugs! The victory in GA will be a huge help!ReplyDelete
I'm happy about Georgia.Delete
May you start to heal in all ways...this is unrealReplyDelete
When I saw the news, it looked like a horror movie.Delete
Why indeed, no answwers from me or from most peopleReplyDelete
At least we ask instead of accepting.Delete
Yes, the police were unprepared (deliberately?) and reacted differently on the whole with these rioters than with peaceful protestors in the past. There were still a group of republicans in congress that objected to the registrations in several states and held everything up until 3:30am. Trump will be encouraged. Something must be done...but will it?ReplyDelete
Sounds like you went through hell! When you can--tell us about it, please. Sending healing energy, my friend.
Thank you, Rita Pita Pan. He's banned from Twitter and already trying to tweet from fake accounts.Delete
Janie, despair only a little for Washington. It truly will straighten out. There is enough democracy left.ReplyDelete
What is wrong with you. How can I help?
It's so kind of you to ask. I don't know of anything that can be done.Delete
Horrifying! Heartbreaking! But predictable -remember the most dangerous time for a victim is when they begin to break free. We have been the victims; we are about to break free & our abuser-in-chief has escalated.ReplyDelete
My hope is this pain will translate into positive change & open some eyes.
The strength we see with Joe Biden and Kamala Harris gives me some hope.Delete
Like you, I too knew this would happen. Anyone who is even three percent aware of the preparations for it written openly on plenty of sites would have been. FBI monitors, did you fall asleep at the switch?ReplyDelete
Like you, the bafflement is that the Capitol police seemed unprepared.
And we're not done, so vigilance for the law is always needed.
The so-called authorities say they had no reason to expect violence. ?????Delete
I am so sorry that you went through a horrifying situation. I hope that whatever happened you are soon better.ReplyDelete
As far as the capitol, I'm angry and heartbroken.
Please take special care.
I'm angry and heartbroken, too.Delete
The only positive thing in politics lately, the outcome of the Senate race in Georgia. Since I am from Georgia, you're welcome, America! Wish I could be more hopeful but those nutcases that stormed the Capitol...ReplyDelete
I am grateful to Georgians. It's sad the victory in Georgia is overshadowed by the insurrection, but the new senators are going to make a huge difference.Delete
