Yesterday was one of the saddest days in American history. We were attacked from within by a violent mob of terrorists on orders from a deranged president.

We also witnessed the death of the Republican Party. They are responsible for and complicit in this travesty. Any remaing members with a conscience must remove themselves from the cult. The rest must be voted out of office.

Trump must be removed from office. 25th Amendment, impeachment, arrest, whatever. He is a clear and present danger and a threat to national and global security.

The fines will be deducted from lawmakers' pay

If they can prove they got sick from the folks refusing the masks seems like the non-maskers that got them sick should have to cover the out of pocket medical expenses.

It might be time to change

It might be time to change the windows on the lower floors of the Capitol building to bullet proof glass and uninpenatrable barriers behind all the major doors leading to the Senate chambers. Maybe even consider making it possible to trap intruders inside.

Let me reiterate R Neals heading. "Sad day in America".
A poll shows Trump has a 43% approval rating. And this is after the riot at the Capitol building. We are doomed.

If the Senate doesn't

If the Senate doesn't immediately impeach trump today before he can implement anymore pardons, then the failures of protecting the Capitol falls in their lap. They need to do it before bringing up formal charges on the rioters. I'm seriously worried that he may have had a prewritten agreements with the Capitol rioters that they would be pardoned. And that's why they didn't seem concerned about being photographed. May have been the reason the leader of the proudboys visit to the whitehouse.
