Hopeful & Thankful

January 6, 2021 the Capital of this nation was invaded and trashed by Domestic Terrorists incited by, and acting out the fantasies of Donald J. Trump, President of The United States of America. Five persons were killed before the insurrection was contained.

I am hopeful rejection of Trump's seditious attempt to take over the capital, and illegally seize power of the presidency, woke up win at all cost, ends justify means, Republicans and a voting citizenry who lack enough understanding of history or civics to see the danger Donald Trump posed to our way of life. I am hopeful that he, members of his family and members of congress who enabled his criminality will face consequences for what they almost wrought.

I am thankful President-Elect Biden will have a majority in both Congressional houses for at least the next two years. We are in desperate need of leadership by this sane experienced man, who has surrounded himself by a team of competent managers and advisors during this time of grave danger.

  • Grave danger from the pandemic that will likely kill as many people in six months as died during the four years of World War II, from the pandemic caused economic depression and from unresponsive elected state and federal government officials who have refused to address the plight of the citizens they represent.
  • Grave danger from domestic terrorists the Federal Bureau of Investigation considers the greatest threat to this nation.
  • Grave danger from known and unknown foreign actors who have demonstrated their ability to infiltrate this nation's Internet grid, spread false narrative that inflame violence but even worse turn off the nation's electrical grid which would create chaos as people were unable to obtain food and water or fuel for their vehicles that would make it possible to flee to places of safety.

I am thankful Nancy Pelosi, Speaker of the House and third in line for leadership of this nation, is a wise experienced woman who knows how government works. I am thankful Vice President Kamala Harris will be in a position to bring critical issues to debate in the Senate.

I am hopeful President Joe Biden, Kamala Harris and Nancy Pelosi will take charge and save our way of life.
