54. A fantastic job of NOT arresting a single major player.
Mon Feb 21, 2022, 01:06 PM
Feb 2022

I'm not saying anything except:

Until there are arrests, placing some current and past political office holders and executive functionaries, all known bad actors, in jail awaiting trial, it is a fantasy. It's been 13 months since the attempted coup. There should see at least one major player in jail.

That could happen tomorrow. Or next week or month. But it cannot be tolerated if it fails to materialize before the mid-terms. It's not a terribly high bar, but then, neither is it nearly high enough. It's simply a fundamental requirement that one must be first.

Any explanation that proposes patience beyond the point in time when popular opinion can still be significantly rallied against voter suppression legislation, complete with its thug style enforcement, long before the midterms, is the real fantasy. There will be guardians at the polls. Even white people might feel intimidated this time.

Let's diagram that sentence to make it clearer, "Any explanation that proposes unjustified patience is the real fantasy". If a single one of our contingency is not performing their duties with an overwhelming sense of urgency, they're unnecessary. It won't help to wait for them to publish their book about why they failed.

Who among you foresees a June sweep? July? August? September? October?..........next February with a republican congress?
