Pondering the State of the World

Patches is thrilled that Steve Bannon was found guilty of two counts of contempt of Congress today, but she’s also pretty disappointed that the minimum sentence is 30 days in jail per count. She’s hopeful though that the judge will not stick to the minimum due to Bannon’s general nazi-assholishness. We shall see.

January 6th Committee Hearings

I want to write something bitter and mean and viscous (with a solid foundation of “I told you so”) about today’s Congressional hearings on January 6th.

I want to, but I am too heartbroken by the whole shit show. What the hell happened to my country?

My country used to be a beacon of light to lead the way for the free world. Yeah sure we were always a little fucked up in the head, but compared to this? This is insanity. This is absurd. We are a total shit hole country now.

I just want to close the shades, get into bed, and pull the covers over my heard and pretend it’s not over.

Catching Up on Hearing Highlights

I’ve spent the last half hour or so reading news reports from last night’s January 6th Committee hearing. I don’t think we learned much of anything new. Trump ignored it. Pence, while his life was being threatened, tried to get help to the Capitol. It was brutal. It was like a war zone. It was all based on an idiotic set of lies.

I guess what we did learn included that scumbag Bill Bar did not resign to spend more time with his family like he said. I guess lying just comes naturally to these assholes. Maybe they are allergic to the truth? He resigned because the election fraud claims were bullshit (his word) and he wanted no part in it. So instead of being honorable and patriotic, he lied and said he wanted to spend more time with his family. Thanks, dick.

Trump’s daughter/love interest said she did not agree with the claims that the election was stolen. Your daddy is going to be so mad at you. Another key figure who passed on the chance to be honorable and patriotic and do the right thing for the country. I guess the apple doesn’t fall far, yadda yadda.

Liz Cheney would make a good Republican candidate for president in 2024. Well, she would if the Republican party were still an actual thing rather than the nazi murder cult it has become. As it stands now she’d likely be one of the first in front of the firing squad rather than a potentially strong leader. She also doesn’t have a penis, so even a rational non-nazi cult Republican party would pass on her.

We’ll have to see what comes up at the next public hearing to see if we’ve learned anything useful.

January 6th Hearings

I should have watched the January 6th hearings in the house tonight. I owe it to my country.

Still, I don’t really feel like I have a country anymore. I have no faith that the nazis who tried to overthrow the 2020 election will face even the tiniest of consequences. They are going to get away with treason and get off Scott free.

Why watch the hearings and get my hopes up. Why not just move to Ireland?
