2. Wouldn't it be great if all the involved Republican lawmakers were found guilty and imprisoned?

The Dems could pass all their legislation.

Not holding my breath, though.

9. ANY lawmakers who helped insurrectionists may face CRIMINAL prosecution.

I'll make a small correction as to how it should read: ANY lawmakers who helped insurrectionists SHALL face CRIMINAL prosecution.

10. Any who helped should face criminal charges. The "inside man" is just as guilty.

Even more so - the "inside man" prompts, directs, helps to cover up the crime and protects.

13. I'm cynical enough to say people easily forget.

Sadly.

A lot of folks rather have a feel-good narrative that claims redemption in some form or another - even where none exist.

To my thinking that kind of thinking allows the guilty to go free while gaining a measure of just how much they can get away with, and next time they'll try for more.

Democracy hasn't prevailed until the threats to democracy have been quashed. That doesn't happen if they get away with their actions.

14. We've seen the videos. Members of Congress have seen the videos.

They're pretty horrifying to me - and had to be a lot more horrifying if you were the target, a member of Congress.

15. I know and you would think the whole of Congress would be one on that.

So either the GOP members fully expect all violence to be directed at Democratic members only, meaning they are safe - or they simply don't care as long as they can gain power. Mostly likely both. I think both, anyway.

They would not have cared if Pence had been murdered and they probably feel the same about Cheney now. They would have come up with some lie to excuse the death of Pence. Just as they keep lying about that day and the deaths that happened then.

I re-watched the NYTimes' 40 minute timeline video ( "Day of Rage" ) on the attack the other night and I felt the same way I did on January 6th watching it on the news as it played out.

I felt sick to my core.
