Wednesday Will We.....

 "America is great because we preserve our democratic institutions at all costs. Until January 6th, we were proof positive for the world that a nation conceived in liberty could long endure. But now, January 6th threatens our most sacred legacy. The question for every one of us who serves in Congress, for every elected official across this great nation, indeed, for every American is this: Will we adhere to the rule of law? Will we respect the rulings of our courts? Will we preserve the peaceful transition of power? Or will we be so blinded by partisanship that we throw away the miracle of America? Do we hate our political adversaries more than we love our country and revere our Constitution?"


In my opinion - well said Liz Cheney on the opening of the January 6th hearings. 

Much to ponder for any and all who live in America and root for America

  3. When the Capital was breached, I was not surprised. I heard the rhetoric. Unfortunately, I knew people who were radicalized. January 6th was the culmination of a thwarted coup. The crying shame is the cowardice of elected officials who cannot admit what really happened. Liz Cheney is the future of the Republican party. She may be our first woman President.

    1. Alas, she ruffles too many feathers. We'll see what happens. I just hope somehow things can calm down and maybe our "young" folks will be tired of these old fart shenanigans.

  5. Had to laugh at rule of law. That's all crap when it comes to the rich, usually, anyway. Got the money, you'll get away with darn near anything. But yeah, the riot was down right pathetic.
