I am so over Covid and was over Trump when he began.
Thank god he’s gone, but somehow his power still reigns over the Republican Party. This man has thumbed his nose at democracy, yet they don’t seem to have the wherewithal to convict. Trump was right when he said he could shoot someone on Fifth Avenue, and he would get away with it. Why?
Our culture has opened up, so people feel free to harass people who disagree with them. I actually know people who have got those threatening emails or nasty people on Twitter who go after them.
We played a betting game the other night on what are the chances that. What are the chances that the Republicans try to impeach Biden to get back at the Democrats? What are the chances that the Republicans take over again in two years? There were a few more, but it is so depressing that we expect these things to happen.
It’s time for civility. To agree to disagree. To put our hand over the aisle and shake it well, at least bump elbows. To stop all the amplification of ugly noise on social media. I don’t always agree with decisions made in companies I am involved with or votes in the Senate or the Supreme Court’s ruling, but I acknowledge that I can’t entirely agree with all of it. That doesn’t mean I don’t go out and threaten anyone online or in person.
How can we stop that without impeaching the man who abused all of us for a hobby? How else can we move past white men who use their power to do anything they want and get away with it? What happened on January 6th is unacceptable. We can’t just move past it without putting the person who prompted this behavior to be punished. After all, Osama Bin Laden did not fly the planes that destroyed America as we knew it. Trump must be held accountable.
