January 6th, A Day of Shame

One year ago today our country went through enormous trauma brought on by a fascist president. Our forefathers predicted this to occur, and despite the constitutional safety nets, it occurred. The saddest thing regarding this day is that many Americans still believe a lie promoted by this fascist and his scoundrels.


When in DC during the election we were in a hotel where the Proud Boys also stayed. These individuals were ignorant, class less, smoking marijuana throughout the hotel, and in over hearing conversations, (you couldn’t miss them they were so loud and unruly), they worked at minimum wage jobs. We were in a quandary how these folks could afford to fly from all over the country, stay at a “nice” hotel, order food., and drink galore, and party. We wondered, “Who is funding these individuals, and WHY?”

The repair to the Capitol from January 6th insurrection cost tax payers $40 million, however, this does not factor in the physical and emotional toll the brave Capitol Police who bore on this day much calamity, which they continue to bear. To hear of legislators who actually planned this event during secret meetings is despicable.

And the Capitol Police protected them.

The republicans involved in these plans:

  • Jim Jordan of Ohio
  • Scott Perry of Pennsylvania
  • Louie Gohmert of Texas
  • Bennie Thompson of Mississippi
  • Paul Gozart of Arizona
  • Lauren Boebert of Colorado
  • Mo Greene of Alabama
  • Andy Biggs of Arizona
  • Madison Cawthron of North Carolina
  • Marjorie Greene of Georgia

Not only should these individuals be stripped of their positions, they should also loose their $150,000. a year pension which each congressman or senator receives whether they serve one day, or 50 years….. Don’t get me going on that one.


Let’s hope those investigating the insurrection are able to ascertain who is funding these groups and bring them to justice, and better yet have them pay the $40 million.
