I guess I don't have the right emotions

I heard Jake Tapper talking with someone on CNN yesterday about the Jan. 6th coup attempt. The topic was the fact that Trump and his Republican servants are now methodically working on the next coup attempt. They're installing stooges and messing with legislation in key states with the idea that, next coup, they won't have to worry about principled Republicans getting in the way. The coup will work next time.

My emotions were wrong when I heard that, I guess. Tapper informed me that that was "frightening." He blurted out, "that's frightening!"

Frightening?

I have to admit, I didn't go to frightened. I skipped right to angry. Crazy, right? I felt that feeling that, due to certain biological factors, can sometimes make us humans lean a little forward in our posture, clench our fists, and pull our upper and lower lips back a little. I didn't seem to feel that other feeling that makes people want to flee, the one Tapper mentioned.

I think "fright" on our side might be what the goons want. I don't recommend that feeling. Quite the opposite. To me, fright is what the Trump pawns should feel at the prospect of their actually trying to overturn an election if that time ever comes.

5. Fight or Flight is the primal response. 2 sides of same coin.

BUT if you get stuck in fear you get dead or run over at least.


SO yeah, even if you are afraid, work through the fear and pick up the spear and go hunting.


That damn elephant won't be stomping on MY COUNTRY if he's dead as a door nail with his innards on the ground.
